It's become a bit of a buzz word since the whole Forstall-Ive thing. There's nothing wrong with skeumorphs when they're done right and subtly: I have no qualms with 'folder icons' for example: there's no reason they need to exist other than they represent their real world equivalent, but they're an example of a 'good' skeumorph because, well some sort of representation need to be there and a folder is a nice, non-intrusive and intuitive way of doing so.
Same with the camera click: Something needed to go there as a form of feedback that lets you know a picture has been taken, and I'd rather have a friendly click than a beep!
The only ones that really annoy me are, for example, the garish design they've put on Game Center and the 'paper shredder' animation on Passbook - they're over the top, unneeded and just get in the way of otherwise good design. Definitely those two will be gone in iOS 7.
