@dhergert Not everything is hardware related, no. If Apple wanted, it could make the animations on each device take 5 minutes by simply changing a number (if iOS is written how I assume). Apple could, by the same method, change the animation to be faster. If the processor of the device running the animation could not keep up with what the code was asking of it, the animation would see slow frame rates and you would see more harsh movement in the animation in question. Because of this, the A6 and A7 shouldn't show too big a difference (if any at all) when it comes to this sort of animation. The differences in the A6 and A7 are more suited for once the application has actually been loaded, in how fast it can run the startup functions and get the user to the content of the application. A simple animation such as how the application "flies in" when opening shouldn't put enough strain on the processors to show a distinguishable difference between the A6 and A7; and if it is, Apple is doing something very, very wrong.

@LucaFauciglietti I agree, I much preferred the blue icons.

@mbsambo10 I have used Android, and actually have a Nexus 7 so I have used the newest Android (unlike many who can't upgrade). So your claim that I haven't used Android doesn't make any sense. I was saying my favorite parts of iOS 7, not anything on this was about Android?
I'm being sarcastic, I understand why you brought up Android. My point is that is irrelevant to my post. If you don't have a comment about iOS 7, or your favorite features, something more related to this post, you are wasting your time and simply look like you have nothing better to do with your life than make useless comments about Android on iOS articles. :)

@druggelino Only on iPhone 5 and maybe iPod touch 5 in the Camera app, however they all support filtering from within the photos app post-taking the picture.
@MooseMonkey This is very well said. You have a great point, with which I fully agree; tablet and PC experiences are not the same, and shouldn't be treated as such.

@sellmymobile1 You can do this with a white iPhone, the glass would just stay white and the metal would be colored, just as the black does.

@SneakerHeadsAreCorny They do an awesome gold color. And like I said, in my opinion the price is worth the service. However, to each their own. (:
@Reese728 I'm not sure if they could keep the silver band though, it'd color all the metal (to my knowledge). The white glass would still be white though.
4K is too immature for Apple to want to do I think. I can see a 1080p HDTV though, with the UI being the real selling point. Something about it has to be what will sell, otherwise it'll be "just another TV."
10 months, 2 weeks ago on What new market should Apple break in to in 2013? [POLL]
@BrainRoopull So you mean a new mobile OS, not a smartphone. It has a smartphone in the iPhone.
@JonGiardina @CallChrisNow Using the term "cheaper" for this rumor is beginning to become a little confusing. By "cheaper" we are not talking a sacrificed build quality - I agree, Apple would never do that - we are talking cheaper price for non-subsidized. The iPhone 4 is indeed free now, but only on a contract. It is not free for people in emerging markets who buy their phones off contract, however. That is where the "cheaper" comes in. If they were to build a device, such as the above render, using older parts, etc, Apple could bring the non-subsidized price point down, therefore making the new device a "cheaper" iPhone.

I will refuse to update if that is what iOS 7 ends up looking like. I highly doubt it ever will, though. I like the rounded icons. They are clean. Those just look cluttered.

It's a synecdoche. Apple is located in Cupertino, so Cupertino refers to Apple. (:
