    As I've stated in another thread, iOS 7 is a winner - period, and I can't wait for it to be released this coming fall...

    Honeslty, I'm pleased to see some great changes with iOS7, but a little disappointed that there will not be a new iPhone to go along with the experience!

    I'm stuck with my iPhone 5 and a fall upgrade approaching....sucks my device will lose a little bit more resale value waiting for a new phone from Apple. (I shouldnt be whining but I am )

    Pros: Pretty much everything discussed.

    Cons: Actionable notifications for my Macbook but not my iPhone? Blasphemy.

    When I first saw it I thought it was a joke. Sure the new features look neat but the UI looks like WP8 and Childrens android UI

    IMHO, this was the only major fail from the keynote. Missed it by >|THIS|< much.

    Looks good. Different enough without being so different it alienates existing users.

    The one thing I wanted most I didn't get - the ability to quick reply to texts, emails, etc. from notification center. Oh well.

    The new signal strength meter looks interesting. The whole design looks very similar to Letterpress.

    That could just be a placeholder, but I did like it.

    I have no complaints. I like it and will continue using my iPhone without a problem.

    I hope iTunes Radio will have unlimited skip. Hopefully we'll find out soon. I highly
    doubt it though.

    I like it and I'm so happy I wont have to wait until Fall to have it on my phone. The only thing I don't like is the icons, for me they are god awful. The whole flat 2D thing they look like some kid created the damn icons in Microsoft Paint. Oh well I am willing to put up with it for all the other things we've gotten. I can't wait to get inside and see if a few of the other things I'm hoping for are there. OK back to work for me now. I never planned to get the beta today I knew the servers would be slammed. I'll wait another day or two.

    I think Apple nailed it with IOS 7. I have only one true disappointment and that is lack of quick reply for text. Texting is what I do most on my phone. Not sure I will give up my jailbreak now.

    Looks like android in quite a few ways. But it died look really good and sleek.

    I'm happy they finally did a little make over.

    I will reserve my poll vote until I read the actual article and view the pros and cons but I can see be it this poll and the thread the JustMe'D created is going to be a very interesting and long debated answers of all kinds.

    I am actually more interested to read other member thoughts than the article itself. There will be for sure may opinions all over the map....Let the posting begin!

    IMHO, Ivy & Co. totally nailed it. The only thing iOS7 is missing from my "want" list is arranging app icons however & wherever I'd like on the screen. But at that, iOS7 is/will be enough for me to ditch my jailbreak. Can't wait for the full-on release!

    I think it looks great! One missing feature is quick reply text because of what they did with Mac OS I believe it will happen before the release date! At least I hope!!
