too bad it doesn't work on ipod touch 4th gen
but it's ok I have an ipad 2 anyway
*staring on N9* "dude, now you have equal rival in terms of beauty UI"
iawnaek, 11 Jun 2013AirDrop? That's really WiFi Direct.Got that right. Nothing really innovative or exciting...why not a word about enhanced content in the map app? Apple is losing focus and it's clear nobody has stepped up to fill the creative genius void Steve Jobs left.
I like it!
I'm currently using HTC One. But I like the changes on the UI. I can't wait for it to be available for my iPod Touch. :)

You got it right man...truely your interpretation are as perfect as Megnan Fox Curves.
Jokes apart...yes iOS 7 looks more like of Windows phone with some of android features
Any day i would prefer android over iOS....Coz i love freedom
Bunyip22, 11 Jun 2013Totally agree, while its great to have the new features its not as smooth and polished as the ... moreTalking of consistency i also thought they would put relavent settings actually in the app ,,for example the equaliser actually in the music app to make things even more consistent.I think Apple could simplify and make things more consistant like they are well known for.
My twitter feed is full of ios comments from haters and lovers,,yes Apple know how to get attention good or bad..Nothing like Apple to stir up the world..I hated Apple 2 years ago and now love the system.
In other words:
flatter icons and UI elements - boring...step backwards
animated wallpapers (not quite live wallpapers) - still playing catchup with google
a revamped multitasking system that allows apps to update much more often, while not wasting battery - ummmm, updating apps more frequently uses more power..."when you wake the device, it's going to use power anyway so iOS lets any available app update run in the background." - genius! so i can spend more time waiting for for my email, video clips and newsfeeds to download.
It got a polished new interface and it goes after Google Now with card-based UI and new services to provide answers to your questions - still playing catchup with google (oh, already covered that one)
camera got revamped too, it now features four modes - it's about time
The Safari browser for iOS was updated with a new 3D UI for switching tabs (looks kinda like the one Chrome for Android has) and you're no longer limited to only 8 tabs. - still playing catchup with google (i know....)
A cool new feature lets you swipe from the sides of the screen to go back and forth through your browsing history. - finally something innovative and useful.
There's AirDrop, which is Apple's answer to NFC (they even made a joke about not having to bump your phones together). It;s a streamlined and centralized interface for sharing stuff with other people, who our close by. It uses a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connection for that. - but it's not nfc now, is it? btw, who proofed the story ("other people, who our close by")? Here apple is too cheap to pay for the nfc hardware and license
Finally, the Music player has been revamped - yes, finally!
There's also a cool new weather app that shows the weather in multiple cities with beautiful animations, a detailed forecast for today and tomorrow and the weather for the next five days. - aren't there already appstore apps that do this?
This is the best the Apple engineers could come up with? I'm underwhelmed...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
[deleted post]Yes Samsung bash all the other companys not just Apple..Whether its Sony Z or HTC or BB or W8 Samsung have a go at all of them..Thing is Samsung have done nothing except gimmicks and gone downhill since the superb SGS2.
Apple always cause the biggest stir even though no-one is interested yet they all make comments..If it does not bother you why comment but they do.Apple is always a big threat with huge sales.
Apple is no more than a hardware computer company. The features are very androidish bec they have google developers working for them. That is ok because both own the top 2 spots in the market.
Apple is also to release a cheap iphone to gain even more marketshare.
It's got to be Microsoft, Blackberry, Samsung-Intel and others to compete with these 2.
Still going to sell millions when new iphone arrives and create a shedload of comments. Apple ALWAYS cause a stir whether your a lover or hater showing how good the company is. Apple know exactly what they are doing every single time.

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2013tell us one thing on ios7 that we can't do on Android smartphone or windows 8 smartphone go ... moretell us one thing on ios7 that we can't do on Android smartphone or windows 8 smartphone go ahead we waiting
2 things perhaps,
1. It's ugly !!!
2. After upgrade iOS through iTune, the ip5 keep restart by itself.
I like the looks, very mature OS. It seems Apple means business. That will help evolve competition, meaning more features and better OSes for us.
pranavdesaib, 11 Jun 2013I loved the new redesign and it doesn't matter to me whether it is a copy or an innovation or ... moreit might be good for you and other apple users but for god sake don't start No lies that apple did it again somethng new my a**

It all looks a bit slapped together with inconsistent use of features and visuals.
