    Really liking the new features and the fresh look!

    Maybe folks need to look closer at your typical 'Metro' idea as the iOS7 design is nothing like it.

    The whole update is fresh, Apple have implemented some popular features amongst other devices and even apps out there, but given their own spin on them.

    For those who haven't yet watched the presentation, I certainly recommend it.

    All in all looking forward to the update!

    I like iOS 7 they definitely added much needed features to stock iOS. I would have liked scrolling wallpapers and widgets that would have been even better yet.... I guess for next year.

    Well... after reading 5 pages of comments I have decided I will not be upgrading immediately to iOS7. There is 1, and only 1 jailbreak tweak keeping me from doing so: Exchange Unlock. This tweak keeps me from entering an 11 character (numbers and symbols) password every time I unlock. This is a pain in the neck! Otherwise I love the new UI and all of the great new features! It's obvious to me that they kept air drop to iP5+ to enable upgraders! Especially with iP5S right around the corner! It is not a hardware limitation....

    We know it is. Just found it amusing we have a tweak named Parallax, which is different from DeepEnd, which is what Apple called Parallax!

    You don't see why? It took second party developers to design the phone we wanted and apple has done none of the work simply saw what others did and took that. Folders, multi task, ect ect.... all jailbreak tweaks that apple stole and then told us how awesome the were for "giving" it to us.... yeah? I already had that BEFORE you "gave" it to me so F off.

    Exchange Unlock keeps messing up for me!?!? I love it when it worx but eventually it messes up my Mail.app and I have to uninstall. Weird that it worx for you but not me. BTW, I've tried it on an ip5 and ip4S. It must be something in my Backup file...

    Also...the multitasking that Apple implemented is the same premise as ProSwitcher from the iOS 3 jailbreak. Android wasn't even a competitor at that time so whoever said that comment has no idea what they're talking about!!! Thanx for chiming in, though!

    From my understanding, iPhone 5, iPad mini, and the latest iPad and iPod touches have a different/better wifi radio, the 5GHz band second frequency that enables N-draft wifi. The older devices only support A/B/G Wifi, so maybe that's part of the reason why they won't get Airdrop. Just my guess.

    As for iOS7, I'm freaking loving it, as it eliminates some of the tweaks I use from Cydia, like Clear Lock Screen SBSettings, No LSB, Winterboard. I would love to have Gridlock and TetherMe. Also on my tweaks is *******, but don't even have a need for that but save for 1 pricey app, but Maps.app suffices even now. InstaSave and Phantom I can live without, same with 3GUnrestrictor. Those are all the tweaks I have on my iPhone 5, so I will definitely be upgrading to iOS 7 most likely.

    I'm actually quite pissed that contact pics are not in the stock messages app in the list view or address book. why is this so hard to do?

    and an icon of whether the last message received / sent is from you or your contact would be nice.

    let's hope they have new system sounds at least

    That'll be me

    What I said was it was identical to HTC Sense, which it is, and before that the palm pre which out dates the HTC Sense way of multitasking, the jailbreak tweak and iOS 3

    Now THAT is true! ProSwitcher was based off of the Palm Pre multitasking. So, really, Apple took this from Palm!

    Yeah probably not, but I can say they don't look bad or out of place at all. So not much to worry about, they fit right in with the remade stock icons

    I don't really care where Apple got the ideas for their new features, I only care that they are included.

    Amen... Many people still prefer google maps over apples and will miss that tweak they had to open directions in google maps... Every time former JBers click a video link and it takes them away from their currently used app to redirect to YouTube in safari they will miss Browse In App tweak or a open in mobile YouTube tweak... They will miss safari downloader, chrome downloader, pandora downloader, (prolly an iTunes radio downloader that will be available) they will miss Jay Freeman's very own Cyque for their music app, the ability to change anything significant on the phones file system and on and on... We will be here on mmi laughing as everyone who says "no need for jailbreak" and "the jailbreak community is dead and outdated" is posting about how they can't wait for the evaders or whoever to save the day... Besides, apple needs the jailbreak community to get more ideas for the next iOS and the one after and so on... None of our tweaks and mods are necessary and aren't needed, neither is our idevices in general... So long as we have our idevices apple will limit our ability to do anything they don't feel we need and so to Cydia we will go... And yes, quick reply is still a damn good reason to jailbreak...

    It looks quite nice and I'm sure lots of people will give up their JB for it. There are just too many JB tweaks that I'd miss for me personally though. There is always a trade off. I would like iOS7 but will wait until it is JB - and that could be some time....

    Agreed. Who really cares. And why? There's nothing you can do about it. Nobody is gonna sue anybody
