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.
Swiping between screens
Swiping between screens remains mostly the same. You can also, for the first time, put Newsstand in a folder out of sight. It's not clear whether this will make it into the final version of iOS 7, because Newsstand can add to Apple's top line.
