I'm 35. There are things I like, and things I don't. You can't argue that the shadowless font has less contrast against light backgrounds. My phone rebooted itself today while I was trying to open imessage, and imessage has quit a couple times on its own. Never happened in iOS 5 or 6. When I select an artist in iTunes, I now have to scroll through every song on every album before I can get to the album I want (which was already doable under "all songs"), and a genius playlist went from 1 step to two. Reduced functionality. Instead of having buttons for areas you can touch for an action, there's now often just colored text. The animations take a bit too long sometimes.
Multitasking is vastly improved. Siri is so much less bitchy. I like the camera app way better. Facetime Voice voice quality blew me away. The swipe-up options are very convenient.
I feel like the people who assume new always equals better are in their teens and twenties and are easily wowed by novelty (no offense) :P
I agree with a lot of what you said but I still think iOS 7 is a huge improvement. It has it's pros and cons (with any new release of basically anything) but it's a great OS IMO
None taken haha. I don't usually assume new equals better but I definitely agree people my age think that
