    Amazing! Apple really delivered.

    They really listened to us because most of the features we wanted from jailbreaks were implemented. I was actually shocked by how many JB features they added.

    iOS 7 is a result of the JB community.

    It's probably the reason they don't put an end to jailbreaking. It certainly drives innovation.

    I'm holding out hope that they will implement the ability to reply to a text message without leaving the app you're in. That's the only jailbreak feature I miss.

    When they showed quick reply in the OS X notification centre I was certain it was gonna come to iOS. Shame.

    Thats probably the biggest reason I still jailbreak.

    It seems like that might be coming soon, since they've added it in to OS X.

    Still missing gestures. Gestures make perfect sense. Love being able to turn off my screen with a swipe while driving, or close an app with swipe. Breaking my home button when out of warranty gives me nightmares...

    Looks like the rest was covered for me:
    1)Backgrounder looks to be implemented (somewhat)
    2)NC settings on steroids
    3)Live weather

    I could nearly live without jailbreak now.

    I thought the same thing when I saw the OS X quick reply. Just seems like a no brainer, but they always tout new features in the fall as well when they release new hardware so maybe they will then?

    If anything, iOS7 shows we need a jailbreak more than ever. So we can remove the ugly new icons.

    It's a combination of reasons.

    First it's the iPhone enthusiasts jailbreaking to make their phones more usable and relevant to each individuals work flow, or lifestyle.

    Second it's the wonderful influence of Android which has really given Apple a run for it's money when it comes to nearly every aspect of making a smartphone fast, functional and adaptable to the users particular needs.

    Once again proving that nothing beats competition to push a company like Apple.

    Yeah first thing that came to my mind when I saw ios7. I'm not afraid to update and lose my jail break now.
