    Cool iOS 7 , who designed this mess?

    So Apple used to be cool. Their stuff had a feel and look about it. ios7 is anything but cool. The icons are cheap, notes looks like an old fashion typewriter, the keyboard has a design that North Korea would be proud of. Don't get me stared on the glitches. Just try and change between camera and video mmmmmm nope won' t do it all the time. I know Apple will fix these bugs but please..... Bring back the cool aspect too !! I don't want my Gramma's phone.

    Let me put my spin on your comments....

    Apple is a very successful & profitable company, and a lot of people see it as "cool". Their "stuff" sell by the millions, and "has" a quality feel and professional look. iOS 7 is cool to a great deal of people, but not everyone. The icons are flat, the Notes app has discarded the lines in exchange for the look of blank sheet of paper, and the keyboard looks cleaner. Changing between the camera and video can be easily accomplished with a mere swipe of the finger. There are a few bugs that need to be worked out, but hey, doesn't all OSes have bugs here and there? Some people view iOS 7 as Apple's answer to complaints of a needed new look to its OS. Heck, even grandma likes it........ How's that?

    Don't you just love how someone feels the need to create an account just to post such drivel? (Yes. I checked. It was his first post. )

    And despite those who say it's mean/rude, sometimes the correct answer is "sorry, but that's how it works. If you don't like it, buy something else."

    If Apple went back to ios6, I'd stop using my iPhone. It's bad enough I'm stuck with carrying a GS3 again for work but I use my iPhone whenever possible.

    iOS6 looks dated. THAT to me is grandma's phone.

    By the way, I checked his profile and he does have a really old phone. So I don't understand what he is trying to say by this, "I don't want my Gramma's phone." Just go buy yourself an iPhone that hasn't been updated to iOS 7 yet.

    we live in a "need it now" society. the OS finally changed, he/she doesn't like it and they "need" it to change "now"

    it's a vicious cycle and they more than likely need to seek professional help

    "Cool" as used in this topic is very subjective. Most of my family and friends that have iOS 7 like it a lot.

    Yep. I'd go back to the Galaxy S3, and throw on CyanogenMod.

    To be honest, I felt iOS 7 was designed to be a very attractive platform, and it has gone away with so much of the metallic and wooden look, and gone with a cooler, sleeker interface. However, I think many of problems come from the apps themselves , and some elements didn't look right on a tablet form factor. Things like folders are such wasters of screen real estate that you wondered how Ive came up with the idea...

    God I wish I could, but it's an enterprise phone. Can't mess with it.

    I'd be using miui.

    Considering how iOS 7 was revealed and demoed during the WWDC during the summer, and how there was a 18.2% adoption rate for iOS 7 during the first 24 hours (higher than iOS 6), I think it's pretty safe to say that quite a lot of people like iOS 7.

    I disagree with you almost completely. Yes there are a few bugs to work out, as is the case with any new OS. By the way, your grandmother must be pretty cool!

    I like iOS 7 quite a bit. Much more useful than iOS 6 and earlier

    Not an answer to this thread, yet not a tolling post I have a question - is it safe/wise to update an iPhone 4S to iOS 7 or better wait till major bugs (what are they btw) are fixed? My wife has an iPhone 4S and it's a while she asks me to upgrade the OS, but I read there are some bugs in iOS 7 that may corrupt experience. Thanks
