Any thoughts? The Keynote and Apple's bragging video was heavily dominated by the white iPhone and the white frame.

I had the same thought today. It really seems like Jony prefers the white iPhone and designed iOS to look fantastic on it.

I think it's not even designed for the iPhone 5 but for the upcoming iPhone. I hope they change iOS7.

Yeah iOS 7 was designed specifically for the white iphone only.

The threads here get more and more retarded by the day.

Obviously not only for the white iPhone. Obvious that apple thinks it looks much better on the white iPhone.

It seems to work better because most apps have a lot of white, although the home screen looks really good on a black phone.

It just looks cleaner with white than it does black and hence it was featured. I'd prefer an optional black theme but I guess I can just use the invert color in settings.

You hope they change iOS 7? They JUST announced what it will look like. Doubt we will see huge changes...
At the bottom it says features see subject to change. Everything about iOS7 looks unpolished, very beta like.

And apple puts their signature on it?

I think the general appearance we see now is here to stay to be honest. Its very different to what we are used to but wouldn't say it looks unpolished. The icon's are no longer shiny and the textures have gone, but everything looks clean and vibrant IMO. I welcome the new look personally. :)

iOS7 Looks Good on White iPhone, Wonder why they did not show Black iPhone

I will be getting a white iPhone next time (not until IP6) and going back to 32 GB because something tells me, I will not be able to stick with 16GB anymore.

Anyone have iOS7 loaded on a Black iPhone 5, how does it look?

It seems to me like a marketing technique. Usually the color in which Apple markets the device sells more than the other one. They probably sold more black iPhones than white, they've been marketing that way all along.

So they must have moved to the white ones. Same with the iPad 3/4 as well. Just my thoughts.
