iOS 7 Preview

0. phoneArena 17 Sep 2013, 08:24 posted on

Apple has announced that iOS 7 is coming this fall, but how can one just stand here and wait? We mean, boy it's painful! And knowing that there's actually a way of getting the iOS 7 beta 1 that is currently available to developers, we decided to go ahead and install the thing on an iPhone 5...

Apple claim that they put a lot of effort into iOS 7, but apart multitasking they have done nothing significant. Apart multitasking they have changed only "skin" of iOS 6 and I think that the new "skin" is totally fail, I think that iOS 6 user interface was better than new one. And I think that Android OS is still better!

Right, even their new multitasking is the same old preemptive pseudo-multithreading one. They just extended its usability to 3rd party apps and gave it a WebOS-like ui.
iOS7 is nothing more than an Android/MIUI wannabe on acid!

Everything is OK but changing icons was extremely bad idea.

It's called RETRO THEMED.. Clothing, music, almost everything is turning back to time, I think it's a good move, but the icons, it's inconsistent..

Candy coated, lolipop lookin iOS7 was designed for 13 year old girls, their target audience. I mean adults choose Windows and Android already, they are just playin to their audience. And for that, they nailed it lol

Too vibrant. Flat is one thing but the colors are really loud right now, and not in a good way.

What are you talking about?? I simply love the new color scheme, it reminds of someplace over the rainbow!!

It's perfect for anyone who wants to be in touch with their femininity!

F*ck yea couldn't agree with you more! The bokeh-ish background, the icons and some of the font looks like a MIUI-ice cream sandwich rip-off.

No, his coment is silly because:
1) He contradicts himself.
2) He thinks that big rich companies doesn't make mistakes.

iHate apple less than iHate the arrogance of iFans and ya, iM not a fan of how Apple does business. Ya know, offering less for more, highest possible margins, lowest possible tech return. iMean really Apple, the ridiculously overpriced iPad, 3 years later and coming up on 5 releases has never sen a price cut? Ya, $5-800 for a iPad is embarrassingly overpriced then and now. Just not a iFan sorry

The new multi-tasking is an exact rip off from android all the way down to swiping away the app to close it. Only thing diferent is it still doesnt do true multi-tasking. And the images on the phone looks like a 3rd grader designed it

no the comment is not right and exact. Just like in the movies the Dark Jedi always fails so does your comment. The company has been losing millions since steve jobs died. They were so far in the black that it will take atleast another 10 yrs before you see any real damage. But facts are check the stocks you will see it has been going down month after month and android is taking over the maket share and since begining of 2013 android has sold more phones worldwide.
