    Same here. Even tried taking another picture and no luck.

    I thought I read somewhere, I think on this forum, that Apple did away with this feature due to battery drain. But it may show up on a future update to iOS 7.

    As has been said before the look of iOS 7 is very polarizing so to each their own on that, but i find it hard to disapprove of the features and upgrades.

I envision an app developer sitting at his iMac wearing his/her Elton John $~$ glasses as he/she creates the icon skin app.
    LMAO!

    Yup exactly the same... The only thing missing from previous builds is Panorama wallpaper, and iCloud Key-chain.

    iCloud Key-chain will most likely be pushed out later this fall.

    After switching from Blackberry to iPhone a year ago for all the usual reasons, I am somewhat disappointed in iOS6 because the keyboard is too small, and it takes me at least two or three steps to move from one app to another. Also, when viewing contacts, the note fields feel mushy and reluctant to scroll. If iOS7 fixes that, I could tolerate the garish look.

    If you had gone through the beta development cycle, yes. Clearly iOS 7 was evolving through that process... but now that the GM is out, it’s not going to change until the 7.0.1 release.

    The GM was released last Tuesday... so you could have had it at least a week before the general public.

    You guys are nuts that don't dig iOS7. To each their own of course, but my gracious, for functionality alone it easily trumps iOS6. Now, I don't know what I'd do without the pull-up menu for toggling wifi. I couldn't go back. To be honest, I don't even pay attention to the colors or the way the app logos look. I just want them to work...and they do. Every single time.

    Going only by the photos I've seen online I agree with you. The design looks like something one of my granddaughters would draw using their crayons. Don't misunderstand, I'm looking forward to iOS 7. But if the design looks as preschoolish on my phone as it does in the photos it will take some time for me to get used to it.

    Seeing as I haven't had a chance to use iOS7 I'm looking forward to it a lot I guess I will get use to the look quickly but I was wondering did Apple get rid of the date wheel that's used in most of there Native apps I hope not thats one of the cool stuff I liked about iOS from the beginning

    Yes, it works the same ... they just changed it up a bit to match the look of the rest of iOS 7... sometimes it’s hard to see what is being selected as you’re spinning the wheel(s), but functionally, it’s the same.

    Here we go again. I understand everyone has their own opinion. But damn what can we really do? iOS 7 is set and done! I can't even stand the look of iOS 6 anymore. Looks so dated!!! Time to move on people.

    Overall, i think 7 is an improvement in function, although I dont love the icons. My biggest issue is the folders, especially on the ipad. I like to keep all my icons in folders, and now less icons fit on each page. In the ipad, I had all my apps of a certain type in one folder, and could see them all when I opened that folder. Now i have to scroll 3 pages. Why waste so much screen?

    I showed iOS 7 to a student this morning. She was, in a word, horrified. Her exact words "it looks like Android." But is she ready to race out to buy her iPhone 5C? Absolutely.

    I'm enjoying iOS 7, so far. I was bored with Android, and the refresh to iOS came along at just the right time for me. I felt iOS 6 was ugly as sin, and it was a big part of why I wasn't using an iPhone. Yes, I want my phones OS to be functional, but I want it to look good, too. iOS 7 is just that. It looks good and is functional. My opinion, of course.

    The OS is amazing. It has all the features and functionality we have been waiting for. Only downside: the terrible colors and icon set.
