If the new Springboard looked like this, I'd be way more inclined to like iOS 7. I'm probably kinda late to the redesign party, but hey, I like to take my time to add the finishing touches :)
Redesigned every icon from scratch (except Photos) and tweaked the Dock, labels and statusbar elements. Real Pixels & Comparison.
For five more redesigns and more of my opinion on iOS 7, check out my piece on Medium.
Thanks to @hooliews for the comparison shot on the right.

@Doney den Ouden at this point almost any redesign is better than how it looks right. But particularly I LOVE the 'Newstand' icon. Great idea! The 'Game Center' looks mighty swell also.
Apple, do you see this?
Yes! This is just the kind of design I was expecting from apple! Simple, but not too flat.
Agree with @Quentin, Newstand and Game Center icons are simply stunning! And that battery icon in the status bar is so much better! Good Job!
As I promised I will be giving you comments here. I really love this. I would totally love seeing all these icons in iOS 7. Photos and Camera are much better, Clock looks gorgeous, Reminders, iTunes store and appStore are also great.
But I didn't like the Game Center icon. it's too "iOS 7" (If you know what I mean). Settings icon could be better, Safari's icon is great but I would switch the two colours (blue and white). Dock looks much better as well.
It's really so good and very well done. Oh and the NewsStand icon looks gorgeous. ;)
This looks neat! I wish you were John Ivy!
One of the best redesigns I've seen! Great job.
Awesome. If I need to look at tiny details: i think Reminders is an outlier and Newsstand lacks a little contrast in my opinion. And Safari's white arrow looks a little weird as it penetrates the white area. And I still don't get what's wrong with just a lens as the camera icon. The iPhone doesn't look like a camera as pictured in the icon (and yes it doesn't look like the phone in the phone icon, but that's a bit different). I think just a lens would suffice.
Other than that, looks like a great improvement :-)
Like the settings icon :)
Just so you know Apple was planning to add a drop shadow under the icons. It's supposed to be there but had to be removed because of the blur-transparency bug. They will definitely be fixing up a bunch of stuff on springboard…
as a beta user... yes! this is much better!
