iOS 7 includes a redesigned interface that does away with many of the skeuomorphic elements that have been a big part of the operating system. The OS includes improved Siri voice control and a more natural sounding voice, a redesigned Camera app, single swipe access to searches and common system controls, improved multitasking, AirDrop file sharing support, iTunes Radio support, and more.

iOS 7 will require an iPad 2 or newer, an iPhone 4 or newer, or the fifth generation iPod touch. Users can download it for free through their iOS device's Software Update feature once it's available next week.

After watching the presentation I am looking forward to iOS 7, its lack of skeumorphism not withstanding.

And I’m one who really likes the new non-skeumorphic appearance!
