    Has anyone else realized that the analog clock icon on iOS 7 really works? Even the second hand works. This is such a cool little feature! :) Has anyone else found minor/non-publicized improvements in iOS 7?

    That feature was publicized when iOS 7 was previewed in June.

    There are lots of fun new features within iOS 7. Apple says over 200, but maybe more. Have fun with it and go exploring.

    I've had iOS 7 since day one and nearly noticed it last week.

    Fun fact: The clock hand moves smoothly on the home screen, but if you go into icon edit mode where the icons jiggle, the hand skips to each second in a choppy manner.

    A good rule of thumb is, if you think you've found something no one else has noticed in software that has been downloaded by millions of people in the past 30 days, someone else has already found it. And they noticed it within the first 48 hours. And they wrote about it before you on macrumors.

    No way, really? The keynote wasn't lying? The OP wasn't lying? The guy who replied to him above wasn't lying either? Gee.

    Nope. Just not up Apple's ass. I don't watch every second of the keynotes. I have a life.

    anyone with some degree of good taste would have hidden that horrid clock icon somewhere where you'd never have to look at it again.


    its a pointless feature because you have the time displayed in your status bar all the time anyway.

    They took some aesthetics out and added some new ones.

    Apparently not much of a "life" if you went on a Apple rumor website and created a new thread about a clock icon... :p

    No need to be so defensive - it's just that on a geeky Apple site, people already found new features of the iOS 7 weeks ago when it was releases.

    And then there is the search function of the forum that would have avoided all of this.

    How is the icon horrid? I need it on my home screen because I actually use the alarm feature.

    It's horrid because it changed from what the dude was used to looking at. People can't handle change. The drama over iOS7 icons is hilarious.
