The new "Slide to unlock" screen is ok, except i dunno why those words are there, its nit list you have to slide in that spot. Lime out previous Notification you could slide down from anywhere on top previous.

The new one look better (full screen finally) on the iPad, but the "slide to Turn off" screen now kook ugly as hell, just gone to two bars.

So there are peeves, and there are goods, and ya, i know this is only the first iOS 7, so may ie Apple are trying things different to see how many people will howl.

Weather data has disappeared from Notification Centre after I turned off location services. Can anyone confirm that location services need to be on for weather notifications?

Yes, Location Services for Weather needs to be on for it to show in NC.

Yes. How else would it be able to tell the weather in your location lol.

But why does it need my location? Simply use the first city in my Weather app as default and pull the data from there. If I change location to say, London, I'd simply make London my default location in the app. Seems an unnecessary use of battery to me.

I believe that the older the message is, the lighter the hue. Cancel the optician.

Updated lastnight & I'm digging the Windows 7 look and feel.
I like how the Safari menu at top is transparent to see the webpage scrolling behind it & the tile view when you click the Home button twice to see which apps are running is also cool.

Only think I hate is why is there so much white.
I had to turn down my brightness a bit but I guess that will save some battery life.

You have terrible taste if you think the previous iOS design was more sophisticated than this.

I have to disagree with you there. The previous design is much more sophisticated and nuanced. iOS6 = tailored wool suit. iOS7 = brightly colored track suit. At least design-wise. The added function and features are great, just not as great because the new design makes the os harder to use.

I agree with you.

I was showing the iOS7 to someone who blurted out "it looks like Windows!"

Yeah, I definitely see some "Aero Glass" in there. My how things have changed. When Jobs was around, Apple looked like Apple. As soon as he hands it off to someone else when he passes, Apple is now copying Windows even though Windows is a sinking ship now. Maybe Apple is the new Microsoft? Look at Mavericks. It's changed from AFP to SMB2 for default networking. What's next? Adding a registry to OSX to make everything get slower over time as you add more programs?
