BTW: If any of you need to have an iPhone screen repaired I do REALLY cheap work. I can do 3G,3GS,4G,4GS, and of course the 5.

Replacing a 4(s) or 4 rear glass is as easy as unscrewing the two screws and sliding it up.

Macrumors- then look at the sources. They usually assess validity of sources in the last paragraph of their blurbs.

Some stuff is common sense and past knowledge of design preferences (Ive-> flat design) which when compounded by a leak by some Apple employee all but validates the claim/direction.

On iOS7:

How do you like Windows Phone? The 5S is supposed to have fingerprint unlocking- which is a pretty cool feature if you're thinking about buying another iPhone, though gimmicky I know.

thanks, ill check those out. windows phone is quite awesome. i love the clean yet bold and elegant interface. initially thought that live tiles would grow old and boring to look at but they do serve the purpose of keeping everything up to date. i dont have many apps on it so i cant really speak how it is from a performance standpoint. learning curve is quick and its a simple OS to use. the carl zeiss lens produces some of the best results ive seen from a camera on a phone. never experience any lag or choppiness. battery life is never an issue. i think the only drawback is that its limited to 720p video recording. other than that, its a great alternative that wont break the bank

no, i mean more along the lines of having a dedicated home screen where anything youre not using is stored away. i know you can put everything on one screen, but youre always left with other screens left to scroll to. and isnt the double tap there as more of a multi-task feature?

Sounds like the redesign is the main thing happening, while keeping functionality mostly the same to avoid introducing a new learning curve to "less tech savvy users."

Quote:
There is apparently no new learning curve in the same way there was no learning curve when the iPods went color. While iOS 7 does look different, its core apps and system fundamentals (like the Lock and Home screens) mostly operate in a similar fashion to how they do today.

...

9to5Mac says Apple's engineers are looking to add more at-a-glance information to iOS, while keeping the system easy to use for less tech-savvy customers. The article notes that Apple has looked at ideas to implement new panels with swipes from the left and the right of the screen, much like how the Notification Center currently drops from above.
At-a-glance information has already been added with Google Now lol. Maybe this means they will finally add widgets? Swipes from the left sounds like they like the Ubuntu mobile design.

I don't like too many swipe gestures on a small screen. They're nice on a tablet, but not a phone.

We will have to wait and see on the redesign. I think it will be mostly aesthetic with some functional improvements. It's pretty clear that it'll be the biggest visual overhaul of iOS since it was released.

You can create folders (I think that's what you call drawers) and organize all your apps any way you wish.

Re: The Official iPhone 5 Thread

Nobody? Well, I guess it isn't popular to switch between these platforms. It's usually one or the other for most

That looks like the digitizers fine. On iPads you can just swap the glass for cheap. Really easy.

considering how careless you are, maybe you should invest on a case?

question for you guys... my iphone5 is taking pictures with a huge black dot in the corner of the picture/screen. I probably need to get the camera replaced, right? Is this something they will repair, or do I have to order a replacement phone from ATT?

Why go through ATT? Go to the Apple store. You can get a replacement on the spot.

Typically they don't fix those things. They are replaced, although Apple did announce they will offer fixes in the future (not sure on timeline).

I wouldn't go back to ATT unless they offered you a brand new phone (i.e. you are in the return window).

That was going to be my next question... will they give me a brand new phone or a refurb? I definitely don't want a refurb... Also, how do I protect all the content on my current phone?

thanks picked up the iphone 5 tonight. so far, so good. sucks that some of my apps are on both ipad and iphone but you have to buy them for each platform

edit: i will say the finish on this phone is questionable. its only a few months old and has a lot of scratches on the coating
