    Anyone else think 7 is just too white all around, keyboard at times is hard to use and telling if you are in caps is tricky

    You're right. It needs to be more multicultural. ;) :D

    I don't really care but there is no denying that the iOS 7 UI is really really white.

    I found that I had to turn down the brightness on my iPad to use IOS7 for prolonged periods.

    I have the white iPhone. And I think it looks great on it. When I had the black one, it really did not fit with phone itself.

    As far as not being able to see cause of the UI. I don't really think it is that bad. I have probs just cause I have bad eyes and could use a bigger screen though.

    Go into accessibility settings and turn on "high contrast" - hope that helps your dislike of too much white :)

    Does it insult you personally that people discuss their issue's with Apple's "New Coke"?

    No but does it upset you that the "new coke" argument is played out?

    I don't think it's played out as long as Apple pushes this Rainbow Bright theme onto us, if everyone accepts mediocrity, mediocrity is all we'll get.

    I like the OS. Its not a theme its a operating system.

    Saying you constantly dislike it on Macrumors will make no difference Apple doesn't read these forums.

    Maybe not this particular forum, but enough people complaining about an issue does elicit results -- remember Maps? Or antennagate?

    Chill. Not long after iOS 7 is released a jailbreak will arrive. Then you can insert some black into the interface as you please.

    We need an official iOS complaints thread so nobody has to look at these trash topics scrolling down the board

    Yes. Please make a sticky complaint thread - problem solved. I think some may be worried how many posts would appear there...

    Opinions of those that dislike IOS7 design elements are just as valid as the opinions of those whom like those design elements. A single thread for IOS7 complaints makes about as much sense as a single thread for discussion of IOS7 features, a single thread for discussion of IOS7 benefits, etc.

    You might as well get used to the complaints now, because if Apple makes few changes between now and release, the number of complaints will increase 100-fold in three to four months. Various polls on this forum show that between 20% and 30% of Macosrumors posters strongly dislike portions of the IOS7 design.

    It's extremely white. I turn my brightness down often (thank goodness for control center). Unfortunately, that's probably not going to change so we just have to deal with it. On the plus side maybe we'll see better battery life. :p

    I remember how those made no discernible impact on Apple's bottom line whatsoever.

    I haven't used ios7 yet, but it is a concern as I use my phone for music and navigation in my car - particularly at night.

    In ios6, switching from a black background screen to a pale grey one within the iPod app can be quite dazzling. My phone is mounted high on the dashboard (so I can keep one eye on the road when I glance at it) making the bright screen even more intrusive.

    Agreed. It really needs that smokey black look as an option at least for night time. The bright white is hard to look at in a dim space. Turn on Private browsing in Safari to see how great it looks. This is coming from someone who generally likes the frosted white theme too.

    I guess some of you haven't noticed that some websites are starting to look like that with a lot of white. Yahoo.com, cracked.com (which got updated recently). It's the new trend of Flat and white.
