    Is anyone else thinking of jumping over to Andriod/Samsung Galaxy S4, if today's (UK time) Apple wwdc event does not wow you? personally if IOS 7 is not a major upgrade, or if it ends up looking like some Windows thing, i will be switching to the S4. Dont get me wrong i'm not knocking Apple, i have an iPad which i love and use for University and iMac which again i love. I just feel that Apples iPhone as become outdated, stale and fallen behind, they need innovation, more features, IOS needs to open up, widgets and customisation. IOS 7 has the potential to be great.

    I guess in a few hours we will know...........

    I will always be Android as I never want to go back to iOS / iPhone but I will still watch the WWDC to see what Apple is up to.

    I am curious as a tech person as to the changes of iOS 7. Apple needed to change for sure since it has been the same for way to long.

    Quite the opposite for me, actually. Galaxy S4 hasn't lived up to all the hype.

    WWDC Always wows me. That is because Apples development support is ahead of Google's. Hopefully Android Studio and some revamping of the documentation will fix that.

    If Apple announces higher resolution for the next-gen iPhone during WWDC, that means a larger screen iPhone will be released late this year.

    If it wasn't I wouldn't take it from him. He's been trolling the S4 for months, and on multiple websites.

    If you're thinking about jumping to Android you won't be disappointed with either 2013 flagship you get.

    Yeah I'm interested in this. I don't ever think I'll leave Android, but if iOS has some new creative stuff I might would set up a shop there as well. I really don't know what they can do that Android doesn't already do, so for their sake I hope they drop bombshells.

    Agreed. There's definitely more interest in iOS 7.

    I'm definitely interested. One of the reason I just got an S4 was because of Apple's stale OS they've had since the beginning. I hope I don't have any regrets.

    I've waited for WWDC because of this, i really didn't want to get one and they announce IOS 7 with awesome features or something. I think this WWDC is being watched closely by people and anticipated more because of Johnny Ive and his involvement in IOS 7.

    So far multiple display fixes and air display treating that tv as an actual monitor is the only thing about OSX Mavericks I am excited about. I am going to mount a 55 inch to my office wall and make that my 3rd display.

    I switched from an iphone to the S4. I was worried about the size of the phone compared to the iphone, but it hasn't been an issue. I thought that the iphone was a great phone, but I do not miss it.

    It takes a lot of inspiration from Android, not so sure about Windows but that is great. One thing use iOS wish we had was more functionality like Android. Now we can have it without having to jump ship. I have a lot invested in iOS, but I was considering jumping, but I think I am all set for while. I will still get an Android tablet later on this year..

    IOS 7 does look good but feature wise there isn't enough, its more of a facelift rather than anything major.

    So far I have learned to live without iPhone integration with my line of Apple Products. I want to download IOS7 but right now Apple's developer site is slammed. I can always switch back to my iPhone 5 if it is compelling enough. I also have another line up for upgrade in October which I can borrow from if the iPhone 5s is compelling enough.

    I hate the aesthetics, it's too "bubbly". It has the same flat design of Holo which I heavily favorite but the icons don't look anywhere near as chic, they instead look cartoonish. Not to mention that Safari icon bothers the living hell out of me, looks like they didn't finish designing it. I feel like TouchWiz is upset a challenger out cartooned it.

    I dunno, I just think iOS 6 looked more mature. This is a downgrade imo as far as looks. Didn't really see the features so I can't comment on that.

    The thing with iOS6's looks though is that it hasn't really changed from the original iPhone OS. Would the implication there be that iOS "looked" mature from the start?
