I need to see how non-Apple apps will adapt to the new look/scheme first.
Maybe even jailbreak it to edit the new icons..
Agreed, although I am looking forward to seeing what Google has planned for 4.3 and especially 5.0. It'll be interesting too, to see Microsoft's 8.1.Nowhere. Nothing has changed.
I'll still own an iPhone, an Android phone, and a Windows Phone.
Android 4.1 was nice, iOS 7 is nice and hopefully WP 8.1 is nice.
I'm a fan of technology not brands or platforms.
The biggest thing about Android for me is that even without Rooting you can almost have a brand new phone every week. (Launchers, Icons, Widgets, Ect.)
People are forgetting that if the iPhone 5s turns out to be the usual s-upgrade you're still stuck with a 4" screen, no notification light, no dual speakers, and the insistency on a hardware home button.
Nothing in iOS 7 will make the 4" screen any bigger.
Apple has no choice if they want to stay competitive. Some Apple fans truly believe that Apple can just do whatever they feel regardless of competition, criticism, and consumer wants. This just isn't true, Apple is not in the safe zone any more.
it's hard to assume that their consumer base wants a bigger screen when sales of the iPhone 5 are at an all time high
^^^^This. Make your phone fit you, not the other way around. Being hog-tied into a theme designed by Perez Hilton is simply not an option.
I hope that there will be a screen larger than 4" on the next iPhone. Dual speakers and a notification light would be nice. I like the hardware home button.
Control Center was the one thing that was seriously lacking on iOS IMO. Others will gripe about the lack of 3rd party apps set to default but personally that doesn't bother me.
Looking at iOS 7 it just feels like the gap between it and Jelly Bean has shrunk. By doing so, you need to look at what truly separates iOS and Android right now.
I think the pro's of both camps are obvious. iOS means instant software updates, excellent apps, a 'genius' that most of us can access, iMessage, and iTunes. (Some hate iTunes but it's a very good software to manage your music.) Android means choice of screen size and more customization. I also feel iOS gets the nod when it comes to overall app quality.
One must determine what factors they value most. Before iOS 7 I would have said that Jelly Bean was the superior OS but now I don't feel that's necessarily the case. At the same time I can't shake the fact that Apple, for now, is limiting our screen size to 4". I am one of many that would love the option of a 5" iPhone. If you really want a 4.7" or larger smartphone right now, iOS of course isn't an option.
The good news is that Android and iOS are moving in the right direction. Each user must determine what they value the most when comparing the differences.
While that is true, KLP is hopefully just around the corner. Will closing the gap with jellybean be good enough?
