We're less than one month from the expected announcement of the iPhone 5S which will bring with it the official release of Apple's new iOS 7. Apple has kept on a pretty strict schedule with the iOS 7 beta releases, with a new version coming every two weeks. iOS 7 beta 5 came last week, and iOS 7 beta 6 is expected next week, and the new word is that beta 6 will be the last one before the software goes gold master (GM)...

iOS7 = Jelly Bean + WP8

Android ICS/Jellybean = Linux + webOS + iOS

Don't act like android is so original.

IOS isn't either. All modern OSes will have something that was seen is an older OS, not like you expected smartphones with no dialers, wifi, color screens etc.

If we are talking solely iOS vs Android; in my opinion, Android has been the more ambitious OS bringing features at a faster pace than iOS.

Silly insults won't stop my wife to be, son, and myself from getting our new shiny 5S's. also bud, as soon as Samsung releases that huge, powerful note 3 I'll be getting that too. Those two top notch devices will replace my ip5, and note 2. Pwned boy

Maybe iOS7 will make some Android users switch to iPhones. The iPhone won't seem like such a dumbed down smartphone anymore to people that are used to Jelly Bean. I have never considered an iPhone for myself. I've tried one as a secondary phone but always stuck with Android. iOS7 has me excited though and has got me thinking.

"The iPhone won't seem like such a dumbed down smartphone anymore to people that are used to Jelly Bean."

What exactly was changed that iOS 7 makes Jelly Bean users think that it is not "dumbed down smartphone" anymore?

Everything?! Please...still the same app launcher, still the same rows of icons, just more colorful. Not to mention the drop down notifications stolen from Android

Yeah. The 'new' quick control center appears to be integrated pretty well. Took awhile for notifications. They just need to jump on the widget/live tile bandwagon to get me to switch. Right now if I left Android I would probably go Windows 8. Even with their small ecosystem.
