Apple's Find My Friends updated for iOS 7, that's the last holdover

Apple's Find My Friends updated for iOS 7, that's the last holdover
It has taken Apple a while to finally finish up the last of the app updates with redesigns for iOS 7. iBooks and iTunes U finally got rid of their faux-wooden bookshelves last week, and now the last holdover from the past has been redesigned with the new iOS 7 aesthetic. Find My Friends was that last app, and it was updated yesterday, meaning all of Apple's apps are finally at home in iOS 7.

Apple's Find My Friends updated for iOS 7, that's the last holdover
Find My Friends had been sporting a faux-leather design complete with stitching, which we suppose was supposed to be reminiscent of an old fancy address book, but it was never really clear. Now, the app has the flatter iOS 7 design that you'd expect and offers orange text that looks to match the roads on the in-app map. User images are now circles instead of squares, and even the icons noting how far away your friends are has been switched for a brighter lime green. 

There are still other Apple apps that haven't been updated, but most seem to be abandoned anyway as some of them haven't even been optimized for the new larger screen on the iPhone 5 and 5s.

What choice do you have? If you buy a new iToy, it is going to ship with iOS 7. There is no option to downgrade, like with Windows, where many swapped out Win 8 for Win 7. Welcome to Hotel Apple - where you can check in, but you can never leave.

Someone tell him they're getting sued for the automatic downloads of iOS 7 on iProducts. It might depress him a bit but its for his own good.

Why if does anyone have to 'downgrade' it's called moving forward, you should try it it's liberating

This is the dumbest comment I've read all day. You have no choice but iOS 7 so your post is completely invalid and irrelevant.
