Looks a complete mess to me ,,if jonny ive got paid for that then he is NO DESIGNER..There is no continuity its all just a mess of colours then the settings look like radar its complicated not simple..Blimey I do like Apple but this is a joke I am sure someones having a laugh..
copied windows phone and Symbian bell
No amount of visual changes nor UI "borrowings" from Android can overcome these:-
~ Very iTunes dependent for uploading files and multimedia
~ No open file system means you often have to duplicate files
~ Limited integration of 3rd party social networks and services
~ No widgets
~ Air Drop works only between selected iOS 7 or later running devices
~ No lockscreen shortcuts (besides those in the Control Center)
~ Very basic camera UI with limited features and settings
~ Limited codecs support
~ iTunes radio only works in the US
Enough said. Thank God I don't have to skim the pages and waste my time in the process at trying to provide a more concise counter view.
Along with coloured iPhones, new coloured theme, icons, .... from classic to flashy and kiddish.
Have always been a Apple user, but its either these flashy icons and kiddish colours or time to shift to Android, or some other platform.
Sorry Apple !!!
AnonD-79719, 14 Jun 2013The UI looks great (if you're a fan of the Teletubbies).. actually.. it may have been them who... moreHaha, well said man. Now who want a teletubby theme for android? None, everyone who wanted it already bought iPhone.
I did not say that Android is the first with Notification Bar but is the first with toggles in it, genius! Not the stock version but ones like TouchWiz. They had them years ago.
Still looks clumsy and made for kids. Colours are too strong, like it's ment to direct half blind people who are not Smart enough to easily take a hint.
Smaller icons with more spacing and more moderate colors would have been relaxing, but can't expect relaxed elegance Apple and Samsung. iOS 7 looks like it was made for Hitler Jugend, too crammed and orderly with colors only kids could appreciate.
Mac is Apple's only hope. This is blatantly copying and call it innovation. History is repeating itself, but this time Steve won't be coming back to safe them.
The fact is Apple are done with innovation and are now playing catch up. Why buy a device with software copied off Android 4.1 when you can get a device with Android 4.2 or very soon with Android 4.3 or 5.0? If Apple are going to just copy Android, you may as well get Android and get what's essentially iOS 9 NOW!
hi. I own an iphone 5 and an htc one. I really liked the htc one and ios6. I installed the ios7 beta version on my iphone.what can i say? i love the new look, but i absloutely hate the new icons, and the new look to the menus. The older icons and the older menu was waaayy better. Notication centre toggles is not an android innovation(get your facts staight). other than the new look, ios 7 is good but i would rate it 6.5/10
you dont have to pinch to activate spotlight you just slide the springboard down, so you can do it with one hand...
This OS is just a copy from everybody else!!! The UI is the copy of Samsung's Tizen version 2.1. See here: http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsung-tizen-2-1-screenshots-appear-show-how-far-the-html5-based-os-has-gone/ and here: r.phonedog.com/shared/images/2013/2/176385-tizen2screenshots1.jpg and here: http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2013/02/tizen-new-lead-news.jpg !!! The Settings app is so similar! The lock screen also! The white theme also! The multitasking solution is a copy from Android with HTC theme over it!That type of Parallax wallpaper is also taken from Android apps! The weather app is so similar with the one from HTC (also with animations)! Control center: toggles like in Android, brightnes bar like in TouchWiz, some apps that remind me about Page buddy apps from Notification Bar in TouchWiz and music player - just like in any Android (but here it stays always with you :)))! Autoupdae apps-hello Play Store. Safari=clone of Chrome, with the same gestures and functionality! Password sync-like in Chrome! That sort of Gallery remind me about Story Album and auto-tagging function with Date and Location from Samsung! Siri-turn on bluetooth=S Voice, Assistant etc. iOS in the car=S Voice (not S Drive, but the car interface of S Voice! Yes, it exists! And before the one from Apple!). That apps near me function reminds me about the latest Play Store update with its front page! iTunes Radio-isn't there something similar with Google Play Music All Acces? Notification Sync=announced at this year Google's I/O! FaceTime Audio=ChatOn voice call, Viber, Skype etc.! Maps Bookmark syncing=Google Maps! Turn by turn walking directions-Google has Turn by turn also for bicycles! And this is not all! This OS just copy Android, Samsung, HTC and, maybe, Symbian and WP! Nothing new here! Still Google Android is the king for me!!! ;)
sucks in every feature truly example if copied cartoon os
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2013Apple cannot add widget because that is what cause android phones to lag a bit at times. And '... moreWidgets aren't what cause android as an OS to lag.
It's Java's Virtual Machine.

I think you are wrong, i think AIrDrop is going to be the hit feature of iOS7. Like apple always does, they made it easy as possible to use. Everyone can use it and its super simple task.
http://youtu.be/_5zYQL--Z0U airdrop video, it couldnt be easier thats why i think its going to be used a lot.
Great review GSMArena
My biggest concern is iOS Car integration and lots of car manufacturers are in line to get it connected. My worry is because I am not an Apple phone user. iOS 7 looks nice - it needs system wide black theme.
The UI looks great (if you're a fan of the Teletubbies).. actually.. it may have been them who designed it.
On features... feels like they're just catching up with the rest, which is about friggin' time. Nothing new there, besides the AirDrop which I believe will be used as much as the NFC (Nobody f******* cares).
At the end, I guess it will work just fine and the Apple users will talk about how much they love Apple even more, but then again, with Apple you're buying more of a brand.
Alright, your final words say its fresh n apple has unmatched hardware and apps!!
I am using beta version on ios7 and I don't like it at all
It's not smart
It's just makeover of iOS 6 UI and addition of CC and some effects
Considering apple as they say we create.. But they have lost it as this should had been there ios6 in first place.
There is no much cool stuff with gestures or widgets, shortcuts, live updates.. It doesn't feel best in market. Also Samsung S4 (don't know Android OS version) has more features. Blackberry has smart keyboard and notification centre which really matter. I guess apple have just remade icons and put some effects. Most importantly changed font so it looks all new. Just like dust in customers eyes.. I expected lot more from iOS 7!!
Considering hardware part.. Samsung HTC and blackberry are improving.. They might!! I was iOS fan but seems like I am going to switch to android and give it a go.. Anyways iOS 7 experience isn't far different so why not use best android!
But for diehard apple fans you won't be disappointed as whatever apple creates you will love it!
iPhone 5 has disappointed me totally! Just taller iPhone 4 with new clothes on bad processor. It would had been fun to see iOS 7 with iPhone 5 launch!! You are not step behind apple you need a jump! People will love u back
