Do we switch or stick to IOS6? Apple has clearly lost it.

What is wrong with iOS7? All I have seen are a few screenshots. Far too little to make an informed decision.

Exactly, it's too early to tell yet I have some Apple fanboy friends on Facebook who are already going orgasmic over the new iOS7 design as if they've just invented a new UI paradigm. Yes, it looks pretty but it will take time to see whether it's just a cosmetic change.

Only you can answer that question. I think iOS7 looks beautiful and has some great features that I can't wait to get onto my iPad.

I think they like it on that site...

It's like magic distilled from squeezed rainbow unicorn ponies sandwiched between glass and metal.

It's only a matter of time before somebody calls iOS7 childish and duplo For what it's worth I find iOS now dated. It reminds me with its excessive faux structures of 70s clothes.

Only if they try to fob it off as a Desktop Operating System.

I guess in a post-PC world it is, when on the iPad anyway.

Duplo slates anyone?

Just kidding, I will probably enjoy my iOS products more with the update after this one (they need to refine their icons).

To much apple hate IMO, I was with android for a year and so happy to be back, I'm unlikely to ever revert back to the poor mans iOS ever again

I prefer iOS to Android on tablets by a mile. I still think that the Playbook OS is better than Android on a tablet.

My only concern with Apple is what have they broken this time? I'm not a fan of fancy little tweeks especially if all it does is bloat the OS and slows the thing down.

One reason why I still prefer Windows XP on my computer, it starts quick and it doesn't get in the way of me doing what I want.

This is what does put people's backs up. The strange fantasy that Apple products are somehow exclusive and for the rich!

I switched livewallpers off on my tablet. It's a great effect for showing off of course!

Saying that, I really do like the rest of the new iOS look. So fresh and how I imagine a piece of high tech equipment should look. I was never a fan of a writing app looking exactly like a piece of notepaper or games app looking exactly like a casino table. Just a personal preference of course.

Yes all that fancy stuff like live wallpapers is great but it's using up CPU and battery power for no good reason.

I just want my device to work!

Jailbroken iPhones on iOS 6 have it too, plus all the usual widgets, live wallpaper, and all the other mods and enhancements Apple doesn't allow.

Silly question.
I have an iPad 3.
Will OIS7 be free and automatically downloaded onto it.?
In the Autumn, I think?.

Io7 should look pretty decent on iPad from what I've seen. Some of the paddies that android 'fanboys' are getting into abou this being the end of apple and the world as we know it is nonsense.
