Would you prefer iOS 7 the way it is now, or if it kept iOS 6 design (icons and skeumorphism) but had the same exact iOS 7 features like Control Center.

No, I have been using iOS 7 for 3 months and am very happy about the update to the design - I far prefer iOS 7 to the previous versions of iOS, design wise.

Nope. One of the reasons I jailbroke was for Winterboard. After seven years I'm ready for a change.

I will take the IOS7 core OS with the IOS6 UI.

I love the functionality of iOS 7. I just hate the icons and some of the colors schems.

I'd take iOS 7 without the lag. I had to enable the "Increase Contrast" option under Accessibility to get the same graphical performance as I used to get with iOS 6. The Increase Contrast option just gets rid of all the transparancy/frosted glass effects.

I'm getting a 5s soon, so maybe I'll be able to keep all the eye candy without lag on it.

I love both the features and the UI of iOS 7.

Within 10 minutes, iTunes Radio convinced me to buy iTunes Match and drop Google Play All Access, and Safari is just wonderful.

Yeah, that really is my only serious complaint. But there's too much other good stuff for me to worry much about it. :)

No, i was pretty happy how iOS 7 turned out to be. iOS 7 was the breaking point for me. Either it was something different or i was switching to the Galaxy Note 2. iOS was getting pretty boring.

Not disappointed

Now if only Apple could make at least a 4.8in display i'd be happy. But that for another discussion.

I like iOS 7 as is, it will only continue to get better.

People bitched so hard about iOS having the same look since it was first released. Now after ~6 years they update the look and people still bitch about it?

If you think you can design a better OS, please go apply for Apple's design team.

Recap of post = People are going to bitch no matter what.

No. iOS was getting boring, iOS 7 is a breath of fresh air.

Looking back at ios 6, it looks childish and dorky. Apple could have made some better design choices though with colors and such.

Once you use iOS 7 it's hard to go back to iOS 6. It looks so freakin dated (2007 to be exact LOL).

Same here, just the s$%@^ music app that makes me want to f@$&(@^ scream.

No of course not. The whole thing would be SMOKIN hot if they just (shot Ives, ..kidding). ...Changed color options.

That's all....nothing more.

I like the simplicity of iOS 6 better. Im sure just like everyone else, this will just take time to get used to.

I'm too used to iOS 7 now that I don't ever want to go back to iOS 6. Besides, yes, I do genuinely love iOS 7 even before I got beta 1 on all of my iDevices.

Its the UI that just stops me from upgrading to 7...

I would rather have an option to use the old design along with the new one, like how when you're using apps not designed for iOS 7 the iOS 6 keyboard appears instead.

Ditch the faux leather and faux wood of iOS 6 UI and add the features of iOS 7 NICE!

I love the new look. iOS 7 has an awesome, crisp, and clean look that I enjoy.

I hated all the faux looking apps of iOS6 so I'm really liking iOS7 being cleaner. I do wish music didn't display album art work so large though, makes it so I have to scroll more though the field. But perhaps we are just not use to that and in a month or two if we went back to the just text layout we would scream "Apple killed all the great album artwork and know if have to read every artist, this takes to long" haha. Music actually seems more like iTunes is now in my opinion. If I had to complain about iOS7 it would be that space could have been used more efficiently in my opinion; ie folds.

God yes. The battery life is worse than a pregnant chick at an abortion clinic. Dead and fast.

I think they should do what Windows allows you to do and change the Theme to Classic, XP, or Windows 7 in the system settings.

It would be cosmetic only but everything would be current.

That would be the best flexibility.

I don't see anything wrong with the update. It's fresh, new look, and with more features and improvements. What more can one ask for?? :eek:

I would prefer iOS 6 UI with iOS 7 features. I feel like I'm using a phone with an Easter theme.
