    iOS not ISO ;-)

    yeah! I was there, trying to download it as soon as the keynote finished. So I've been running it for a few days now.

    The first thing to say is that the icons/colour schemes right now are like something from a katy perry video. Very very bright, candy colours. It all feels a little too pop and silly at the moment but they've said that this is just a beta, it's just a step on the road and in no way a final thing which is more than fair! It's a beta.

    In terms of usage, there are some really great little things and as always with Apple, you don't always see the new bits immediately, it's just a feeling that stuff is working more nicely.

    For example, finally it gets a swipe up to see a "control panel" of common settings so you can easily get to bluetooth on/off, volume/brightness etc.

    pictures are organised by time which is really cute. there's iradio which looks at what youre listening to and suggests similar songs so you can find new stuff you may like.

    There's airdrop nice and easy to use/find so you just click share, and other people in the room will pop up on the display so you can share. Nicer than having to bump phones a'la android.

    The fonts are much more modern and a fave of mine, finally, animated backgrounds. The one thing i liked on android was my animated backgrounds of the christmas cottage with snow falling etc LOL

    Then there's nice things like panoramic photos as home screens and as you hold the phone it kinda scrolls the photo around

    Now, it's true to say that a lot of whats there is catch up with Android AND what isn't in ios7 so far are widgets or tiles or anything else that sits on the screen and provides real time information like android/windows phone. That was widely rumoured and expected so whether SOMETHING like that will be built into 7 before go live who knows.

    As it stands, if I imagine a more finessed version of this beta, which is for sure what will happen, then I can see a more modern feeling phone. Animated backgrounds, assuming apple lets third parties make them, will be all the rage and the whole phone experience feels much more contemporary WITHOUT feeling alien and confusing.

    I must admit when I first saw it I thought oh just a freaky pop-art skin :/ but no, it's more than that without losing the iphone feel which lets face it, has been such a hit.

    Chris is teasing as usual, he said so basically Apple are copying Android he said he uses the slide for services etc much quicker than having to go the long way round on my iPhone. He thinks that's a good improvement.

    There are a lot of new bits in ios 7 which you can't help but think hmmm that's almost a straight copy from Android. The services slide up being one of them. I mean, it's hard to complain because it's such an obvious and great improvement but it's also hard to argue it's not a pretty straight copy ;-)

    Hhhmm, Chris said that he's read that there is a similarity between some of the jailbroken features, which Apple don't approve of but seem to think they are a good idea

    yeah I definitely think that's true

    I guess Apple's point of view has always been that they want to present a very ordered and controlled environment. They don't want developers to have access to so much that they could do bad things to the phone in the background etc. So whereas they may not allow enough access for a third party developer to do a certain thing, if they like the idea, they'll implement it themselves in a safe way

    I have been having trouble with my ymail email recently (been hacked for the second time) so I decided to open a icloud.com email. It's great accept I still need a third party email to use for my Apple ID as they have no way of merging the two. Apparently you cannot have the same icloud email as apple ID!

    Regardless of that though I am really enjoying my iphone.

    I am due an upgrade next month and I am tempted to go for the iphone 5 however the android (the Samsung S4) is calling me.

    I love the ease of use of an Iphone. I think I will end up sticking with it to be honest.

    I have an ipad too but it's only the original so that needs upgrading too! lol

    Will the new ios be rolled out to the iphone 4 do we know?
