Blah blah, everyone hates the new iOS redesign - well, people need to just embrace it and realize everyone hates everything in the beginning. Look at the Mustang. Look at Android. And look at them now. Regardless of the hazing it's going to endure, Apple is one smart company. Give it a chance and have just a sprig of faith (it's more than just a few inverted gradients).

I agree with you to a point but I have two main problems with it, first the designs don't have a common theme to them so they don't look like a complete set and secondly ... have you looked at the news stand icon, you can't possibly defend that.
You're probably right.. But that's maybe because we can't change it ourselves ;). It makes designing a lot easier though! Usually minimalism is very hard to achieve.. But this? I do love minimalism but have to agree with Lewis on the design part
@Florian Verrijk @Lewis Jones You both make great arguments. Really not even disagreeing with you in the least. I simply feel like people love to hate (yes, because we can't actually change what is happening), but because no one responds to abrupt change terribly well. Obv we are all in the industry, so criticisms come naturally, but just like facebook's brand iterations, users aren't going to walk away either.
I just feel like Apple needs to allow skilled designers to re-think their personal UI/UX, and give us the same level of freedoms they give registered developers.
With the majority of apps being third party, there's probably not going to be a lot of consistency in icons. It's nice that they've made all the icons follow a common grid, and hopefully that will achieve better uniformity from app developers.
I can't stop looking at that phone symbol, don't know if I love it or hate it, but have definitely never seen it executed like that.
Dude, I love your icons. When the inevitable iOS 7 jailbreak comes out, I want these icons on my phone. With that said, the top of the envelope looks kind of off-center. Not sure if that's the gradient playing tricks on my eyes though.
EDIT: I seem to be the only one in my circle of designer friends that actually *likes* iOS 7. Makes me feel sad.
@Paul Anthony Webb Thanks man. I can make the .psd avail to you if you like. I'm not even totally satisfied with this set - I just wanted to dribbble a few ideas, exploring how I felt about Apple's next steps. And to be honest, I feel like one of the 1% as well, as I don't feel that strongly against Apple's new UI. I also don't doubt that they are capable of other great designs/trends, but I think once paired with a raging fast processor and organic gestures, I think iOS7 will grow on people just fine.
But who knows, I'm just an idiot.
@Alex S. Lakas Woop woop! I'll gladly take that PSD as well! :P

** I've personally always wanted the keypad a part of the slide out menu/notifications tab on iPhone. Jumping on the bandwagon a bit, and without straying wicked far from the current playing field, I decided to explore a potentially tweaked iOS7 dial screen.
Even though there are a few usability issues, I still wanted to explore a swipe to alphabet/T9 concept. In other words, swipe right, letters - - swipe left, digits, swipe left again - - contacts.
