How can you possibly be bored of iOS?
Yeah bold question, but I'm putting it out there - how does one possibly become bored of iOS or even Android? (Yes people told me they're getting bored of Android...) The answer? It's not that you're bored you're just not interacting with your phone at all. *Note English is not my first language so sorry for any grammar or spelling errors!
Is it the looks and appeal of your home screen? Staring at the grid of icons tends to get boring but guess what? I'm bored of my Nexus 4 themes, I customized it to the max, going around mycolorscreen and trying something new. I always wanted change. But to what extent? For my iPhone I theme using WinterBoard and tried several DreamBoard themes and despite making several or installing several (From ModMyi, dBarEvolution, etc) themes. I still managed to get bored of the look and feel of it.
So yeah it's pretty established that I like to change the look of my home screen but for three months now I'm back to the default grid layout, stock iOS 6.1.3 on my iPhone 5 and the only thing that I changed were icons, replacing them with alternative icons. Needless to say, I'm loving iOS again. The crispy icons that I can associate with the app that I need helps a lot, if I want to play Jetpack Joyride it's easy to find, if I want to play TWEWY: Solo Remix - the icon stands out from other ones because they are all unique in their own way.
Okay so big whoop you managed to like the grid layout that's been present since the first iteration of iOS, we rather see more UI overhaul, we want a flatter design, etc etc. I totally agree with you, skeumorphic design is quite terrible but is that the reason you're bored of the looks of iOS? For me to overcome the whole 'looks' part of iOS took a lot since I enjoyed customization, but what I did next really made me love my phone more. I changed my lifestyle.
Being a tech-geek I wasn't necessarily the "fit" type. I'm rather small for my age and it's well known I like to code and spend a lot of time on Photoshop, Dream Weaver, studying and learning more Java and C, photography, gaming etc. These activities consume a lot of my personal time and I wanted to be a lot healthier. So I downloaded a fitness app and now I have even more things to do, consuming more time. What's my point? You're probably asking this after reading all these paragraphs. Well okay, let me just say this: I'm not as social as I want to be, however after downloading 'Path' and getting more involved in Facebook and Twitter my social life increased rapidly. I noticed I began checking my phone for new updates on my social networking sites and I quickly forgot how 'boring' iOS was. I began playing more games my phone, I used to play console games all the time now I play on my phone with games such as Galaxy on Fire 2, The World Ends With You: Solo Remix, Modern Combat 4, Mega Run, Bejeweled, Words with Friends, Draw Something 2, etc
Long story short, if you haven't understood what I was implying - iOS and Android have a wide selection of apps, why must the look of one's home screen be the factor of how cool and 'not boring' an operating system. Note that I'm not against customization, I'm just saying - there are other ways to have fun, increase productivity, and have a better lifestyle, all from a single smartphone! Use those apps people, go on the App Store and download new games, or try out a fitness app, learn a new language like Spanish or Italian, use Siri to your advantage and try out new restaurants, become more social by using apps like 'Path', etc etc! Within a few weeks of getting adjusted to using your phone a lot more you'll quickly forget how 'boring' iOS is or even Android.
