As we see on the video, iOS 7 is layered, creating planes thanks to translucent displays. For example, when scrolling up on a list, you can see the faintest shadow of it as it moves behind the heading. The planes combine with new animations to provide "a sense of depth and vitality." Remember how rainy weather used to be represented on HTC's Sense with animation of raindrops hitting the screen? Apple has similar animation now, including a real nice one for a snowfall. Forget for a second about the features taken from other platforms. According to Apple, part of the goal in developing iOS 7 was to keep things familiar to iOS veterans, while creating a more useful OS with new features that can actually be helpful to users.
Part of the video shows off the new features on iOS 7 such as the Control Center, which allows you to change all of your settings from one screen. Recalling BlackBerry 10, which in turn calls to mind webOS, you can close open apps with a somehow satisfying upward flick off the screen. AirDrop allows you to share content with your nearby contacts without having to tap phones.
Check out the video below and then let us know what you think about iOS 7. Has Apple scored a homerun with the new look and the new features?

Paid? Maybe, PA is on hot seat now, Someone should give an official statement here from PA. BTW, iOS7 is kinda cool but still not for my taste.

Apple adds that will follow: Jim: "Johny, look i got a new icons, you got them as well?" Johny: "Yeeaah, i got them..." Jim: " I got nice music player: Johny: " I got it as well...i have the same one...yeaaah". Jim: "Can you send me your playlist" Johny: "Sorry, not this time, maybe next year, OK?" Jim: "OK, i am not gonna buy Galaxy cause that gimmick, who needs it anyway. But the new icons are geourgeous, arent they?"

Don't get me wrong i like the design. But it feels to me like it's made for kids. The colours... maybe that's why

I like the Command centre being pulled up and it's arrangement. In my opinion a bit better than Quick toggles on Android and I like the translucency part of the UI... Other than that there's nothing....

Awesome. SO much better than android. Android can talk all they want, but i had a galaxy iii and it was so glitchy, returned it for an iphone4. The next iphone is going to sell like hot cakes!! lets see all the thumbs down from all the android guys on here that can't click on any other article but Apple ones. GO APPLE!!!

I will be one to admit that I finally think Apple is on to something. I'll never buy an iPhone for personal use, however, I will say that iOS 7 is finally some competition for Android! It's aesthetically pleasing, it's got more functionality than iOS 6 added (198 features for Siri, Apple Maps and Panoramic shots). I await seeing this in real life, and how these... different, to say the least, animations will affect battery life. It seems more graphically intensive and with a smaller battery, the iPhone may suffer worse issues there. Can't wait for Android 4.3/5.0 to keep competition alive and thriving!
