Apple "The key takeaway we've reached (after two less than 24 hours playing with the iOS 7 Beta release) is this - every App must consider even basic updates to its UI to survive in a post-iOS 6 world." Great. Telling developers to update their entire application - user interface and behaviour alike - to target a look and behaviour that isn't final yet. Seems like potential for a lot of wasted work here.

You didn't understand the point at all.

Yes, app will works on iOS 7 without any change apart may be a detail here and there as it has always been the case between major iOS updates.

I am a developer and I have my own app: I found a single issue with iOS 7 I will have to fix, but the app works exactly the same way on iOS 7 compared to iOS 6, the difference being that it doesn't looks like iOS 7 UI.

The point is that iOS 7 UI is so different that if you do not change the UI of your app to match the new look and feel, it will quickly feel as an outdated app and users may switch to a more "modern" app.
