My opinion: The color scheme of iOS7 looks as if it was designed to appeal to young girls...

...and as such, I won't ever install it on my 4s if it retains this ugly color scheme. 

 

I don't know what the heck Apple is thinking but the new color scheme of iOS7 is terrible. I'm an engineer and I want an interface that looks as if it was designed for an adult. The iOS6 was fine. Why did they have to go and 'fix' it?

 

Just a rant.

When Apple changes designs, they tend to be improved over the previous version and the previous version looks older by comparison. I think this is true looking at this screenshot:



This isn't quite so apparent with lighter backgrounds:





The big problem with the light backgrounds is that there's no drop shadows so it lacks depth. Darker backgrounds act as a shadow layer for lighter icons.

The colors are more vibrant in the new design, see the notes and messages icons for example. There's more contrast between all the shapes. Some of the new icons look bad e.g reminders, game center and settings but overall, it's a fresh design and very modern.

Every design will appeal more to some people than others. They are issuing one design for over 100 million people so some will be happier with it than others. Similarly, some people were tired of the old design.
