Parts of the tech world convinced themselves that yesterday - the day of iOS7's unveiling - was one of the most important days since, well, ever. But were punters as blown away as pundits?

1. Phil Libin, Evernote CEO

"I think iOS 7 is the biggest day in technology ever.

"There’s never been another day like this in the history of the universe where hundreds of millions of people will see a big change to something that they’re used to"

2. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple

"The biggest change to iOS since the iPhone.”

3. Rene Ritchie, iMore

"iOS 7 represents nothing more nor less than a radical rethinking of mainstream multitouch interface."

4. Nick Heer, Pixel Envy

"iOS 7 is a truly sublime experience."
