So many threads complaining about it so I am curious to hear what folks do like about ios7.

Personally, I do like the minimalistic design. At first, I hated the idea of the flat dull look but loaded onto my ipad I actually like the change.

A small thing I like in safari when opening a new tab all my favorites are displayed for quicker use. I dunno I'm just appreciating all the small little changes that may not seem like a big deal.

Anyways, just curious to what little or big things you like about the new iOS.

I like most of it, not really got any problems, it's fresh, colourful and smart, it needed it.

I went thru all the betas, loved it from the start.

When replying in Messages, it's smart enough to switch keyboards to the language used in the particular conversation.

I like the new safari (except the tabs).

Gives more space on my 4S, and the page doesn't shift up when it finishes loading, causing my to touch the wrong link.

Control center is nice, too.

Never noticed that before--that's pretty cool.

iMessages I do like how group messages show all photos of contacts instead of an empty group pic. Also like the more accurate time stamps. Again, small little stuff for me.

I like that I could delete it off my ipad and iPhone.
Not sure how long ios 7 will allow this though.

I hate iOS 7 but I will try to think of some stuff I like.

Control Centre (Although they should have implemented it better. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen just isn't a comfortable gesture for me. They should have combined it with the Notification Centre or had it come up along the bottom like the old Multitasking bar.)

Air drop is good feature as well.

Can't think of anything else. :o

Translucent elements like Control Center and Siri are quite beautiful and elegant. They are a welcome respite from the ugly neon icons.

Also, it never seems to get mentioned, but the magnifying glass for text is drastically better than on iOS 6.

Definitely agree on block caller add. It feels like they just took notes from the jailbreaking community what folks want to see.

I had that in ios 6


I love the move to gestures, control center as well as the translucency.

If they combined notification center and control center at the top The Android fanboys would cry murder.

There's tons to love for me

I love that they finally finally re-designed the lockscreen which was there from the first iphone ever

control center is awesome especially for those of us who were use to having a jailbreak

appswitcher is waaaay better, looks nicer, is more fluid, and more convinient

Unlike alot of people I like the overall appearance when ever I look at someone using ios 6 it just looks old and dull

love the new tabs in safari

the new ringtones are great, before i liked maybe 1 or 2 from the list and had to resort to downloading outside ringtones

camera interface looks much better and is more intuitive

that's all I can think of right now but I'm sure there is alot more. needless to say I'm a big fan and glad that Apple finally did something radically different.

A couple things I've noticed that were great.

-If you set a timer and lock the phone, the timer will show on the lock screen.
-When using maps for directions, it provides the ETA and distance remaining on the top.

The translucent white UI. I just came from using Android phones for the past 4 years - there it was always black with green or black with blue.

Way back then:

I like the crispness of iOS 7. The keyboards look nice. All the white space actually inverts to a nice dark screen with "invert colors".

There's a lot to like, but I love how you can swipe to move back/forward in Safari. I also like the restrictions/passcode you can set up so kids can't make in-app purchases.

Control Center.

I can live without everything else 7 brought.

I love how iOS 7 makes Android look high-end.

Control center. Just wish the swipe up worked a little better when the keyboard was up. That might be due to my case though.

I like that it's been out for 4 months so that means a new update is due soon and hopefully a better iOS 8 is coming in 8 months :D

Everything, I don't think there's anything I prefer in previous iterations. Everything is better or the same.

I like the backend changes the most.
Apps can now read from notification center
Much improved background task processing
Much better BT host app background task handling

This means realtime pushing of notifications to my Pebble and car status logging through OBDII port using Automatic. I never having to touch the host apps that feed or consume the data from these attached devices.

I'm know that I am in the minority, but I hate that they buckled and added Control Center with toggles (admittedly the other tools in CC are handy).
I find it lazy that the developer of an OS is passing off the responsibility of radio management to the end user instead of addressing of why users frequently need this access in the first place. I find it crazy that this is the type of "advancement" that people are looking for in an OS.

The restrictions were there before iOS 7.
