    Do we have a thread for this? So far, none of the apps I have have been updated to use iOS 7's graphics, but I am sure they will start trickling in now...

    there is at least one thread about it.

    I don't think apps will be updated until the 18th when iOS 7 is officially released.

    Developers can't update for iOS7 yet. Design wise they can of course but no developer can submit apps using iOS7 API's.

    Developers are now allowed to submit their apps for iOS 7, so you should start to see updates soon.

    Developers can submit, but the updates won't be pushed until iOS 7 release day.

    I use an app called Smartsheets. Today I just got an update that said in the What's New:

    "Bug fixes to optimize behavior on iOS 7."

    I believe updates can be submitted for bug fixes, but developers can't release apps that use the new iOS 7 APIs.

    Yes basically this.

    Devs were only allowed to start submitting apps using the iOS 7 SDK yesterday for review by Apple. As per previous years, app updates will be gradually released after the initial rush of iOS 7 general release calms down on 18th September.

    Prior to this, debs could submit any bug fixes in prep for iOS 7 that used the previous SDK, which is why some mention iOS 7.

    This needs to be stickied methinks.

    Either way I like this thread better. It will be a good way to know what's updating even if it's not an app I currently have.

    I think, based on what we saw during the keynote, some apps have gotten a head start on the game.

    Hoping to see something soon. Preferably before the 18th. Fingers crossed.

    SubNetCalc just hit my phone with full iOS 7 support. It looks great and has the full iOS 7 style interface, keyboard, etc.

    So obviously Apple is approving apps that use the iOS 7 API. Expect to see more coming in over the next few days! :)

    Just because it looks like iOS 7 does not mean it is using iOS 7 API's.

    If anything, yeah, I figured we could use this thread to keep track of which are updated.

    I'm using iOS 7 now and it feels funny that most of the apps still look like iOS 6 :p

    You might have some apps with cosmetic changes that are iOS7, but the real interesting part of this iOS release is the behind the scenes. That is when the fun will happen.

    I was wondering how iOS7 apps will look on iOS6, keyboard, transparency etc? :D It would be a disaster if all apps are iOS7 only.

    Get off your high horse. I just searched for it on the App Store and it is an iOS 7 app indicated by the screen shots

    Hating the old apps now, feels like night and day switching between them and main iSO 7 menu's and the core Apple apps. Although noticed that some of the apple apps are still iOS6 style. Do we reckon we'll have new iOS7 apps for Podcasts, Find a Friend and Find iPhone next week? Odd how apple have updated some but not these. Will also be very interesting to see what the popular apps do to make their apps fit in with the look and feel of iOS 7. Lets hope the majority are quick off the mark to update them.

    Those apps you mentioned are not core Apple apps, they are not bundled with iOS. Therefore, they're treated like 3rd party apps. Apple has already finished updates for them, but they will be released on iOS 7 release day.

    Apps are finally updating to iOS 7!

    I got a update yesterday to a app where it got a iOS 7 look. It even said in the update. Looks very nice compared to the old version and gives it the iOS 7 look! Even the icon looks simplistic compared to the old one.

    Those will be compatibility updates via the previous SDK, updates using the new API's via the new SDK will roll out after 18th.
