I actually really like the icons now. Once you use it for a bit as a daily driver, and replace the background. You either don't notice, or mind them. iOS7 in general has been a much welcome change in my book. -puts on flame coat- -sprays idiot repellent-

i agree....all you have to do is change the wallpaper.

Nice find. A forum like this only really brings out the worst in people. If we were happy and loving everything about the OS then there wouldn't be anything to talk (argue) about right? Sadly, the negative Nancy's are the ones that seem to have the loudest voice.

I love iOS 7 and I think it will be a fan favorite once everyone gets their hands on the GM edition, and the 3rd party apps can bring their apps up to par with the new look and feel of the phone.

I am excited for the next year of Apple.

Hm, I feel as if initial reaction was largely negative and then rather quickly shifted to positive after the beta release.
I feel like if they used a less, clashing background (is that the word I'm looking for?) it would have been swallowed a tad bit better since it wouldn't be so "HEY. NEW ICONS. COLORS. SO MANY COLORS."

Don't get me wrong, there would still be critics, but maybe less people going on a rage when they haven't even used iOS7.

I REALLY like ios7, but I had to roll back because I use a Straight Talk SIM in my iPhone. The Tmobile sim swap doesn't work on iOS7, and there's no jailbreak to use Tetherme.

Obviously neither of those things is a negative toward ios7.

iOS 7 is very beautiful, I agree though, maybe a new default wallpaper? The Dynamic ones, and the Colorful still one NOT including the Galaxy make the icons look worse, the Galaxy one makes the icons REALLY POP too, the iOS 6 wallpaper however didn't negatively clash with the icons I found. It just looked odd a bit because you associate it to iOS 6.

Of course the casual user's response would be positive. Casual users have not used the beta nor do they obsess about screenshots. When iOS 7 is released you'll start seeing some public outcry, just like Apple Maps (except this is one decision that can't be remedied by using a 3rd party app)

I can't really see what there is to dislike though? I can appreciate some don't like the brighter colours or the icons that have been redesigned, but I dare say there will be customers who do like the change. From what I have seen I rather like it and welcome a refreshed look. We've had months and months of people complaining iOS was stale and then they do a radical facelift and people complain. Its good to see that away from here the overall opinion has been positive though. Apple Maps was a cock up, I can't see how this is however.

You can't compare iOS7 with Maps! Like another member said, Maps was something that didn't work as people expected to so it was more about funktionaliy. iOS 7 complains are to do with icon design and colours that all come down to a personal taste of people. Surely you don't expect hundred of millions people to have the same taste.
