How about a campaign for all those who hate this new OS? Do not update so Apple sort this.

Most people like these announcements now they have finished off Apple with this awful Windows and Android copy.

I'm actually quite impressed by everything except the fugly homescreen/icons.

Really surprised, looks like they actually added some serious functionality and the in app experience looks gorgeous. Currently jailbroken, thought I wouldn't go anywhere near this but now, I'm not so sure.

Stop trolling. Apple used to stand for something, even just a year ago. As a customer, this guy has an opinion, so how about you stop the succinct "Oh, don''t update, don't update then. If you hate it so much, why don't you marry it."

The FACT stands that this is the end of Apple as a pioneer of user interface design

If they are copying android I wish they would just go ahead and do it. I am a hardcore apple fan every since I ditched my galaxy s. however,was holding a note 2 the other day and playing with the features and secretly envied it.

The icons and the demoed background was less than appealing but hopefully with another background it will be better.

Overall it looks like a os Id want to try.

Will definitely keep some devices on 6 for the classic look.

People in general are afraid to try something completely new. I was pretty perplexed at the new OS but it's starting to grow on me. Looking at iOS 6, the UI looks very dated in comparison now.

Just like at first, people disliked the iPhone 4 design but then later grew to love it, the same is going to happen with iOS 7. Ive is a genius.

I think the new design is too "shiny". I mean it pops up too much in your face.

It looks like a bad theme that would make you revert back to the old design after a couple of minutes.

The way notification and control center have transparent backgrounds is horrible. That kind of glossy look per se will make you tired after a week.

I prefer a straight look rather than this new "shiny" look.

It looks better than I thought it would for the "flat" design and I like it (based off what I could see off the keynote).

I am most excited by the fact that I won't need SBsettings anymore. That is the number one reason I jailbroke. Other than the hotspot (which isn't that important to me).

The icons/home screen are flat out terrible. Everything else looks pretty nice.

Unless there is something we missed by not seeing it in person, I don't know how it happened. On almost every site I've seen the majority of the comments felt the home screen looked cheap, amateurish, childish, etc. Huge contrast between the clean look within apps and the notification center.

It looks like a kid's first attempt at a theme, to be honest. Not sure what they're going to do, as I don't know if professional folks are going to be willing to hold their nose and deal with that hideous thing.

lol apple stopped being innovative after the 4, i mean look at the iphone 5, it has a larger screen, but it looks ugly and the screen looks stretched, initially just copying the "bigger screen" concept from android phones

and now this "flat" look, it looks android and windowsy it looks horrible. ios was fine and they could have improved on the current theme but they just sold out.

apple is a bit panicking and steve jobs would be rolling in his grave if he saw this.

you really think a perfectionist like jobs would of allowed all these flawed and quick solution ideas?

it really shows how far gone apple has gone, given all the money they have

Gotta say I like the new iOS7 with the sole exception of the new Safari icon. The white edges jar with me a little, but I'm sure I'll get over it. Certainly all the new features make up for it, and the gorgeous parallax certainly does away with any worries that the new interface was going to be totally 'flat'. I'm not currently a paid up dev (too early in my current development cycle to need it) but actively considering stumping up to upgrade one of my spare iPhones (much as I'd like to upgrade my '5 it's my day to day phone and I'm not ready to risk it!)

iOS6 -

"It's just so boring, it looks the same as it always has done, they need to overhaul the UI"

iOS7 -

"It's so crap, it looks nothing like the old one, they shouldn't have overhauled the UI".

Make your bloody minds up.

I love the new design. It's clean, minimal, simplistic with a modern vibe to it. I'm sure by the time iOS 7 goes final, it will be even more refined. This is the very first beta, so give them a chance to make improvements and don't be so quick to assume things.

I really hope that it will "click" once I'm using it on my phone. While I like the UI, I absolutely hate the icons. I know, they are just icons, but they also are the main screen of my phone. Seemingly random color combinations, absolutely awful gradients in different directions that are hard on the eyes - the combination of the hideous Safari icon beside the Mail icon - is that supposed to be some funky optical illusion? And apparently there was an internal competition at apple "come up with the most ugly blue-cyan gradient for the video app and win a lunch with Tim". Then the flatter-than-flat grey camera and settings icons... they just look heavy, ugly and stick out like a sore thumb.
I hope that the fonts are more visible than they appear on many of the screenshots - the weather app looks very blurry with the light blue background and the white font.

@dontpannic: The change was necessary and it's a good thing that Apple realized this, but it doesn't mean that the result automatically has to be better.

Why on earth can't they get ONE person to do the goddamn icons? Why are they so diverse again? Why Calendar icon and Photos icon have white background, and Camera icon has gray gradient background? Newsstand icon is terrible. Bubbles in Game center stick out like a sore thumb.

And why every app is white and looks the same?:(

I do hope they do something about those icons.

I'm kind of sad that there are people who actually think iOS 7 looks good. There were so many people designing it, and nobody said "This looks like *****"? Neon gradients in 2013...No, just no. The color scheme is terrible, and there's white everywhere. White + Neon = No Neon bubbles in Game Center? Why? The lock screen looks fine, but when you unlock your device you're greeted with those ugly icons. I'm really hoping that those icons are place holders... I honestly would love iOS 7 it if it wasn't so ugly...

I feel like they went flat just for the sake of it.

And it's really funny to see that people are 'outraged' and 'downgrading' although it's only the first beta. I don't even have the courage to install it yet. The betas are betas because they are cr@ppy at places... I'm content with it and so is 60% of the iOS community. I covered the event yesterday and I have been getting tonnes of emails ever since for WP and Android users who want to know more about it.
My 2 cents: Calm yoself and wait for the GM and then, USE IT YOURSELF.

Having used it now for the best part of 10 minutes, the major thing for me at least is control centre and multitasking/mission control. Some things i don't really like such as the camera app, don't know why they leave huge black borders on either side should just make it the shoot button just like with recording. Safari tabs is a massive bonus as well.

with the 3D wallpaper thing, it seems to me as though the gyroscope creates that kind of effect. Nothing big but interesting nonetheless.

Jun 11, 2013, 07:50 AM
After tinkering for an hour or so, I realise, the Apps all individually look great, the minimalism and white space, keyboards and transparency effects work really well, but the home screen looks a bloody mess.

I know this is just one persons opinion, and this is Beta software that will see considerable tweaks over the next few months, but my immediate thoughts are that the "app grid" doesn't gel well with the new design aspiration - the grid is too dense, and it's predicated on all the icons being of the same style, so if you have 3rd party apps on the home screen, it'll look disjointed no matter how Ive and Co. try to make the icons unified. ironically, the most comfortable spacing and effect is when you're inside a folder, the title has some nice text and it's limited to 3 icons wide, there should be a setting to select how many icons you want per row!

And speaking of unification, all the gradients for icons go different ways, and the green icons or messaging are a bit too vivid and electric, which forces you to choose your wallpaper wisely, to either compliment the vivid colours, or contrast it.

The translucency of the "home bar" and folders is also too low, so they look much like just blocks of colour, and somewhat undermine what cute feature.

But this are minor gripes about the home screen, and it's difficulty in representing a pile of icons with consistency. by contrast the restraint of the lock screen looks great.

One thing I love is that for instance in a iMessage thread, each individual message has it's own physics, so where we normally have one plane that rubber bands when it hits the bottom, now each element jiggles a bit. Further to that, the plain colours in the messages are actually soft gradients from the top to the bottom of the screen.

hmm, this was a rambling post, but none-the-less i'm excited to see how they refine the OS, but it does sure need it ...
