I walked into Best Buy to preorder an Xbox One and walked oevr to the iPad section and checked out iOS 7. I thought it looked pretty slick. All the things I read about it and thought I would hate about it was not an issue. The UI felt pretty simple to me. i did have to remember some of the tips I read on this forum. I liked iOS 7 so much I installed it on my iPad 2. I love the dynamic wallpapers, and yes tilting the iPad will cause the wallpaper to shift, very slick. Speed wise, yeah iOS 6 runs a wee bit smoother but not by much. Keyboard lag is no better or worse on iOS 7. So i'm definitely up for the next iPad. My suggestion is to first see iOS 7 in action at a display. You may like it.
