    In what ways is IOS7 truly adding simplicity?

    -system center

    What else?

    Lack of visual distraction while maintaing the locational hierarchy which is a subtle combination of functional simplicity.

    If you believe these new icons represent said "lack of visual distraction," of course. :p

    An Icon should be an attraction in a place with no other distraction.

    You mean Control Center?

    iOS 7 is not 'more simple'. The whole approach is aimed at being better, which is more than merely making it simple.

    Well, I can't disagree with that. However, when I do something like.... make a phone call and minimize the call, that neon green menu bar is more distracting and obnoxious than anything in the history of iOS. :)

    So what would you say was the driving factor for the ui changes?

    None of that adds simplicity except control center. Eliminating the need for extra button presses would be an example of simplicity.

    Something "fresh" to get people to buy new iOS devices and be somehow (more) excited about and interested in iOS in general.

    Because things get stale and people want refreshes? Why does it matter what the driving factor is?

    iOS 6 unlock-settings-bluetooth-off and on.

    iOS 7 swipe up bluetooth on or off.

    Seems simpler to me.

    All the other comments are needless crying.

    There's simplicity in function, and simplicity in form. They are not mutually exclusive or inclusive. A lot of iOS 7 seems to be about simplicity in form, with additional features added.

    Hmm. A 5inch 1089p screen, biometrics, lta-a, would excite and interest me more.

    That is mostly unrelated to software, which iOS is.
