iOS 7 will be beautiful once it's jailbroken.

The First one looks ABSOLUTELY horrible.

The second looks nice; I'm not sure if I like it more or less than the current control center.

The third is an improvement.

The fourth and fifth do make the icons look better.

the sixth looks exactly the same as current icons.

Seventh is very out of place.

The eighth does not fit the theme at all.

You could have posted this in the massive numbers of threads already discussing the iOS 7 design. This did not need its own thread.

I really hope the final editions of the icons resemble the ones in this thread... please, Apple. The most obnoxious part I've noticed is the brightening of the color scheme (Messages, Phone, Facetime). The green is so bright it hurts. :(

Beautifully designed. How I wish iOS 7 looked like that, especially the control center and the other stuff. Somebody should email that directly to Tim Cook or Jony Ive!

Credit to whoever mocked that up. Very clean!

The problem with all these comps is that if Apple ends up with anything close all we'll here is how they aped that designer and Apple can't do anything original.

Do we really need another thred like this? In case people have forgotten this is version 1 beta of of software that had the entire UI redesigned in about 6 months. Lets see what it looks like in 2-3 months. Or better yet iOS 8 when they've has time to really refine the product.

That's pretty good, where's it from?
I like the drop shadows, Apple should add them back.

"Flat" modern apps like Letterpress look great with a drop shadow:

Settings icon is great! It really fits well and makes more sense than some cogs. Plus it's taken from an actual control. Cogs don't control anything on the iPhone compared to switched (UI)

Photos, notes and Mail look too simple or like Google. Safari looks too small and "cute"

+1 for this one. I love the subtle shadows on the inner icons.

It doesn't really matter how consistent Apple makes their app icons, it means nothing when they are arranged amongst all of your 3rd party apps.

It might even look worse if they all had the same style. You'd end up with home screens that looked like you applied an incomplete theme.

Does any one anywhere still understand what Beta 1 software is?

The Settings, Compass, Reminders, iTunes Store, App Store, Videos, and Camera are my favorite redesigned icons in this image.

Sure, put the same background and then repost.

Do we need another million threads to understand that it's a matter of tastes? Do we need another tens of polls to know that 70% of the people here like more the new than the old?
Do we need to point out once again that we are talking about beta 1?

IT IS VERY WELL UNDERSTOOD THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT HATE THE NEW ICONS. WE-GOT-IT AND WE RESPECT YOUR OPINION.

Respect the fact that you are the minority, the majority of people like better the new one and we are in beta 1.

haydn!

Actually no. Safari is worse. Compass, settings and messages look cheap. The rest, all you/they've done is flip the gradients and shrink the contents. I'd rather keep the current set than this.
