iOS 7: Bittersweet Refresh

Honestly, the new stock apps-all of them look undeniably fantastic.

But GOD, the ICONS! The Control Center! The weird translucent effect! The terrible icon gradients-the GRADIENTS! They look absolutely horrifying!

Honestly, I do hope that after devs' and designers' feedback, the Human Interface team eases on the gradients, or I'm actually going to be glad my 3GS won't receive the update.

This is probably my first negative post about Apple, so, I guess-bring on the flame...

What do you think? Am I being harsh, or does Apple really deserve some of mine and others' critique for this?
