    I sure hope so. After months of use, I still don't like the look of iOS 7. For some reason the overall responsiveness and animations seemed a lot faster in iOS 5 & 6. I would love all the features of iOS 8 just with a iOS 6 look. Does anyone think Apple will have themes? Perhaps have a classic theme? That would be awesome.

    Nope its 100% not going to look like iOS 6. It will never look like that again no matter what. But I love the look of iOS 7:D

    Apple may refine some of the icons or work with the color palettes a little bit but its no way in Hell going to look like iOS 6 ever again. That's like asking Microsoft to make Windows 9 look like Windows 3.1

    The "animation responsiveness" is fixed in iOS 7.1 :)

    The real question is: do you guys think Mac OS 10.10 will restore the System 9 look? :p

    Why would it? It really wouldn't make much sense.

    Now, will it perhaps tweak/improve the look of iOS 7, and maybe even change some things here and there, that's more likely.

    Well then, I guess any iPhone 4S/5 or iPad 3/4 running iOS 6 will just have its value increased over time. Many people prefer the iOS 6 look. iOS 7 isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    When the iphone 6 comes out this year with its 4.8" screen and iOS 8 the loyalty towards iOS 6 will go out the window and be just a fading memory.

    I wish people who wanted android would just buy an android.

    Why would someone want an old phone which is going to have less and less developer support?

    Oh, if only wishing made it so. Love iOS 7's features. Can't stand the flat, neon-colors-on-white-backgrounds look.

    How does this make any kind of sense in this thread? What does iOS 6 and Android have in common as it pertains to this thread :confused:

    You clearly didn't think it through before clicking "Submit reply" :D

    The hardware will go back to iPhone 2 and the OS will look like Windows CE.

    Easy, they both are ugly. old, and out of style. Any other questions?

    I agree, some people just can't deal with change.

    How so? There will come a time when most of the apps on the app store will require iOS 7, and not too many people will be clamoring for those devices anymore.

    iOS 1-6 was Forstall's vision, iOS7 and beyond is Ive's. Time to move on, either with iOS as it is or not.

    I don't see that happening since as far functionality there really isn't that much difference between the two iOS versions.
