    I don't know what everyone is raving about, but the supposedly flat buttons look awful because they're round.

    That home screen looks fairly horrid with those flattened icons. Of what I've seen, the rest of the OS looks "pretty". Can you post some images in this thread, or links, to what the design theft is of? O

    Following the rule of own thread ..I don't want bash Apple, but Android has killed it for Apple. Just google MIUI Minimalatoc theme and I will see the design is already old...IMHO. It's very Apple though...

    edit: The screenshots don't look real. They look like a design work. I hope someone has tested this on a real device... : P

    Siri updated with Bing integration.

    I have only seen some of the screenshots. Doesn't look bad to me.

    How is it apple can completely redesign their operating system UI's in 225 days and Microsoft couldn't?. The home screen on IOS 7 sucks but ever aspect of the ios7 is awesome. Everything is animated , bright, a new notification center with control center shortcuts. Wtf

    skipping past the presentation of the UI,

    I like the features so far

    * number blocking..great for blocking ex-mates and telemarketers
    * web-browsing...swipe to go forwards/backwards to previous pages
    * quick controls for (wifi, bluetooth, brightness and etc) although I believe android had it first(?)
    * The ability to prevent thieves from re-using a device that has been lost.

    To be honest, I actually like iOS 7. But some things drive me crazy, because they took some things from WP.

    But Microsoft better announce something great...

    Most of the new features are stolen. Multitasking from WP7, quick access from Android, swipe to go back and forward in browser from W8, back button from BB10... It never ends.

    They may not be original ideas or thoughts but they are still nice features to have. I just wish MS would 'copy' some features too. I mean how many development shops do you think are larger than MS? maybe google, maybe apple, maybe amazon?

    They have the development resources but I am not sure if its a high priority compared to their other billion dollar businesses.


    Right now, I don't care about MS innovations more that just copying features from iOS/Android...then once feature parity is achieved, then innovate like crazy! (as a side note, I am suprised that iOS doesnt have profiles yet! I mean c'mon, how many iDevices are shared amongst friends/kids where they somehow managed to screw something up)

    At least they are implementing them instead of pretending they are not needed - like Microsoft with notification centre. Or quick access. Or real multitasking.

    Plus multitasking is "stolen" from webOS, and you could get this task switcher on jailbroken iPhones before WP7 was even released - I suspect that was the real source of inspiration.
    Quick access is an extension of existing feature that in iOS 6 appears on double press of the home button.
    Swipes in browser were in many iOS apps already (Instagram comes to mind).
    etc, etc

    Is it fine to "copy" or "borrow" the idea if you can do it better? I wouldn't mind my Nokia 920 getting some of these "borrowed" or "copied" ideas.

    The way I see it, whoever can implement it best is just fine with me.

    Like the others, I honestly think this is just some MIUI theme, so it's not really a 'wow' factor. Where Apple, I wouldn't say failed, but rather how they delivered the 'flat' (more like gradient, and Windows Aero with all that transparency) UI to iOS, could be achieved with jailbreak. It isn't something new, I think what people wanted was a UI redesign, as in not theming iOS, but changing how the UI works and operates and not being just a sea of static icons, hence people's blank expressions on their faces while, some even tried to fake a smile.

    The issue that i see with iOS7 is that it doesn't feel consistent across screens. They don't have a unified language going on. Depending what screen you're in, there are elements of Metro, Android's Holo, and even webOs/MIUI. That and the translucency blur effect from the Vista Aero days just doesn't look modern to me.

    Even non WP fans are claiming that it is too much like WP.

    Edit: someone just showed me some side by side comparison pictures of iOS 7 features compred to Windows Phone and wow it's like Apple just ran out of original ideas.

    iOS 7 looks great. Some people will never be happy with anything unless it's got a Microsoft logo on it.

    The design is surely new and unique, not really my style tho. I'm more concerned by the fact there's no real revolution in here: there's nothing really amusing to get excited for. Apple had the chance to reedem itself and become the innovator like at the first iPhone times (which was the first modern smartphone), but they just added some new-not revolutionary functions and redesigned the UI.

    Its not that. People are saying that apple copied some features from BB10, android and WP. While not trying to innovate like what Google and MS did they are just stealing from the competition
