most of us use our own but we have to use the same ringtones for texts and other apps like whatsapp who use the bundled ones

and they need to change the ringtones cuz they sound very "skeumorphism like" if i may, they sound like old telephones and things like old ornamentations, we need new text sounds that match the look and feel of iOS 7

It would've been nice.. I don't know now. It may sound ugly. Best keep what we have.

Given the ease at which the ring tones can be changed/added I don't think apple is going to invest too much (read any) time to changing them

new ringtones/text tones may not be needed but I really feel they need to change the lock/unlock sounds and keyboard sounds as those sound themselves are skeumorphic. a modern OS doesn't need the sound of pad lock clicking closed or clicked open. the typewriter keyboard sounds can also use a bit of an update perhaps with a sound more like the iPod touch keyboard?

Is it just me or are the keyboard clicks much more subtle in iOS 7?

Keep on mind that this is a beta without all of the finished features. They might update the sounds, we just don't have them in the current build.
