The pages full of apps for example, why can't something more innovative be done? An informative page would be far more useful in my eyes, then swipe to the right to access your apps.

    I just think overall, it could be made less boring...

    Like you say though, everyone has their own opinion

    You know where the old spot light page resided? I wish Apple would put a blink feed alternative there, it would be amazing!

    I just want my OS to be stable and fast and get out of the way of my apps whether on a phone or PC. I'm ok with the current look and feel and ok with iOS 7 look and feel because I spend very little time staring at the OS. I'm always in an app doing something.

    I'm fine with the current look. iOS7 will freshen it up and that'll be great too. I want my OS to be stable. I want it to allow me to be productive daily and get things done.

    The fact that the question is even asked suggests Apple has got to significantly step up it's game.

    Apple has been many things, but the moniker 'Boring' was left, in the opinion of the company and it's fans, to that monolithic monster Microsoft, its OS and those who supplied it with programs. Apple was the home of the 'Insanely Great' and 'One More Thing' - producing sector-creating and defining, cool looking (if not always entirely well-tested) devices and their OSs.

    But now Apple has become the monolith (even with the drop in Mac sales each quarter) it once derided and its OSs now boast some fairly gimmicky apps - and while it seems that it will look and (marginally) behave differently, even if you allow for some 'maturity' in the marketplace (there's only so many things a smartphone can / should do), its pretty much the same product that came out in 2007.

    That's Boring.

    I agree there's stuff I wish apple would do, like put out a larger phone like the galaxy line because it'd be easier for me to read, make a similar keyboard to the blackberry Z10 so typing would be faster and more accurate, and allow us to send any kind of attachment in an email and have a files app, but all that aside I'm never bored with my phone. Between the music, the movies, the books and the web, I've always got something to do to kill time. I'm never bored.

    saying the phone is "boring" to me just doesn't say much. I prefer specifics. what do you want and why?

    I tried going back to a physical kb after using a touch for a while. I found I type faster now. What's most important on a touch though is good predictive feature or whatever it's called lol. But I know it comes down to personal preference.

    the Z10 doesn't have a physical keyboard.

    here read this part of an article on the Z10's keyboard:

    from Market News: "So what's to like? First, the Z10 learns from your typing. If you tend to hit "d" when you want "s," it remembers this: In fact, there's a hidden, second-layer keyboard under the one you see, remapped to your typical patterns. You'll never mistype "Bernanke" again.

    Other cool things this software can do: It suggests the next word you want and lets you "flick" these from the keyboard into your typing. And, again, it can learn from your history. So if a Trekkie types "Live," it'll automatically suggest "long" "and" "prosper" in succession.

    People just love this virtual keyboard -- including AllThingsD's Walt Mossberg.

    "For a one-finger typist like me, it was faster and more accurate than either of the native keyboards on the iPhone or Android (GOOG)," Mossberg says."

    IOS can be boring for me. Using an iPad 2, which is compatible with IOS 7, will only get less features unlike OS 6.
    Siri was one of the nicest features every IOS phone can do, even Siri can be unreliable.
