While the UI is much more of a fresh coat of paint over the existing functionality, iOS 7 hits a lot of really successful points, while making just a few minor missteps.

The most noticeable improvements come in the form of increased depth in folders, control center enhancements, camera app improvements, and iTunes radio, as well as the overall aesthetic of the UI. It's a clean, well-thought out update to iOS, but it does have some rough edges. The UI's removal of buttons in favor of text tends to mean that it's difficult to understand how to proceed in some instances, and some of the functionality has changed completely (swiping to the right in mail no longer brings up a delete box, now the user swipes to the left).

Overall, though, it's a solid effort, and the underlying bones (64bit support, enhanced developer API calls, etc.) will continue to lead to a stronger app ecosystem.
