Activation only takes a few moments. The standard iOS 6 spinner remains on this screen, but some progress has been made in other apps, such as Music, when a single progressing thin circle spins as something is downloading.
First look at iOS 7
This is the first post-setup screen that you will encounter: The lock screen. The "slide to unlock" text isn't immediately clear from the still graphic, but, as with previous versions, it highlights from left to right. Notice the thin typography still. Also, the network signal indicator is now displayed as a series of five circles.
The notification area can also be slid down from the top of the screen, where the small chevron can be seen. The whole lock screen actually swipes to the right, rather than just a small slider at the bottom.
Redesigned home screen icons
As soon as the lock screen disappears, your home screen icons "fall" onto the screen from the inside out. It already gives a three-dimensional effect. The icons have also been redrawn from scratch, giving the home screen a much flatter, brighter, and more vibrant color scheme. But not all app icons fill the screen, which lacks in consistency, unlike previous versions of iOS.
