    Default New UI design?

    Anybody getting tired of the same basic UI style Apple has gone with since the first iPhone? Like the same ol' square-ish icons on the lock screen?

    I'd really like to see something different.

    I have been hoping for live tiles for years. It's not happening now when they are pushing 3D touch and new popups in iOS 10.

    Can't think of what else they would do..

    To be honest, I rarely think about it, especially when all of the other smartphones use the same icon selection format. Would it be nice to be able to arrange the icons exactly how I want them? Sure.

    It's not really the same as the original iPhone. For example, look at the major changes in iOS 10 to the spotlight search screen. In a lot of ways, this screen can now be used as your main go to screen for information consumption instead of opening up an app. I'm personally very happy with the changes in iOS 10. And for the record, before iOS 10, I totally agreed with your assessment.

    It does get boring overtime. I don't mind it really.

    New doesn't always equal better. The current design works great for me so I'm okay with it. I guess it boils down to what Apple could possibly do to make it better, not just different.

    I like it as is. I might like it other ways as well. But it works well for my needs. Don't ever think about it.

    Meh, if they change it then I'm fine. If they leave it the same I'm still fine. Unless an aesthetic changes impacts the functionality, I don't think it matters either way. Just Audwin's opinion though.

    Current is fine but getting old to me. I wouldn't mind a new UI.

    Not really. Doesn't bother me. Any changes might make their devices more complicated. Why fix something that is not broke?

    It isn't about fixing something that isn't broken. If that were the case we would still be walking around with 3.5" iPhones. Sometimes things just get old and need a refresh in order to stay relevant. Apple has managed to do this without reinventing the home screen, which is just fine with me.

    I like it the way it is. It's simple and that works for me. It would be weird to see a new one after so many years with this one. Have you ever moved an app out of its normal place? it throws you off! lol. I like current, new one would be ok too i guess.

    I think having a dark mode would be cool.

    Agreed. I would enjoy that too.

    Dark mode would be great...the rest of it? Nah.

    That would be awesome BUT, and I hate to shatter your dreams, we are most likely less than a month away from iOS 10 GM. I have a feeling that if they planned on releasing a dark mode we would be seeing it by now in the betas.

    I was hoping for a dark theme messages app. It's one of the screenshots someone showed along with the clock app.

    I'm ok with the UI in general. I organize my apps into folders anyway, and have my 4 most used apps as the ones on the bottom dock. I do wish they would change the Messages app. Or give us options to make changes, like font style, different color bubbles, things like that....I like the stock messaging app, just wish we could make changes if we so desired. I like the idea of a dark theme as well.

    If it's not broken there's really no need to change it. It's like the Windows Start button they began playing with it and the natives got restless

    Options aren't a bad thing though. I agree, being able to hide your apps into an app drawer to have your home screen pic visible would be nice to have, or be able to customize the theme on iMessage for how it looks.

    Honestly I've noticed more quirks and bugs with iOS 10 than I ever have in previous versions. I like what they are doing but I feel like the more you add the more susceptible you are to bugs and glitches. I'm not sure how I feel about them adding features until the experience of iOS 10 is smoother.

    These aren't earth shattering bugs but for instance there are times where my keyboard won't go away, screen won't turn, safari won't open links and small iMessage bugs that I never noticed in earlier versions.

    Seems pretty smooth to me on 10.1. It was smooth for me on 10. Better than 9.3.4. For me anyways.
