iPhone 7 and iOS 10: Let's Chat About It

iPhone Launch.PNG

 

 Hello Community!

 

As you all have heard by now, the iPhone 7 is coming Smiley Happy.  As a lifelong iPhone user, I always look forward to these launches.  As part of the Community team though, this is my first time being able to have a great discussion with all the other fans out there.  I wanted to start this thread to be able to get the community together and make this the best iPhone launch ever!

 

For those that are curious, my name is Tim and I have been with AT&T for 17 years now.  You might know me from such handles as @ATTMobilityCare and @ATTTimCS.  I actually started when I was 19, and still see myself as 19, not 36 Smiley Happy.  I am an avid gamer, and love technology.  My other big passions are movies and my daughters.  I have turned them both into gamers at this point lol.  We have iPhones and iPads throughout the house so these OS updates and device launches are pretty exciting around our house.

 

What are you most excited for?  Have you already preordered?  I will try and be a pretty active participant in the discussion and answer questions and concerns when I can.  With that said, I also want this to be a great place where other fans can talk and share their thoughts!

 

See below for some of the most helpful links and let’s get started.

 

Thanks so much,

 

Tim, AT&T Community Specialist

Hi @Laquesha,

 

Unfortunately there isn't a supported way to do it.

 

It is possible if you're technically inclined as long as Apple is signing iOS 9, which they currently still are. However, it's not recommended that you do so.

 

To prevent accidentally bricking your phone or causing other issues, it's best to stay with iOS 10.

This happened to me as well. It's my first time to expirience this but thankfully it was fixed by restoring it but the problem is all of my files were deleted since I was not able to back it up.

What don't you like about iOS 10?

 

The only irritation I have is the new press the home button to login versus the old swipe to login. I'm sure I will get used to that soon, or at least I hope I do...Smiley Happy

 

Beyond that its really no different than iOS 9.X...

I do not like the new unlock procedure. You have to hit home to unlock the screen and then home again to go to the home screen. Before I just put my thumb on the home button and it unlocked and went straight to the home screen.

Give it a few days of use, and you'll love what the iOS 10 can do. The iPhone 7 is a power house to handle the new iOS. I used it on my 6 plus, took me a little time, but it's a great improvement over iOS 9. On the new iPhone 7, I'm trying to get used to the home button but I'm getting there. Regards Dan. iPhone 7, black, 256gb, I'm also a public beta user and I've had all the iPhones since the 3GS.

I've had a few problems with restoring from backup on the pc. It's not letting me get every I had on the 6 plus. Music is a big issue although I'm grabbing some of my tunes from the cloud. I've never selected backup to the cloud. The stuff is still in iTunes but it looks like the I'll need to go back to all sections and reset my preferences. I'll let you know.

Yesterday I was assured by two ATT Customer Service agents that ATT is launching the 7 Plus 1 week later than Apple or any other carrier, and that that no one that ordered from ATT has been shipped any configuration of the Plus to this point.  Shipping wouldn't start at all to anyone until the 7 Plus launch date of 9/23.  

 

Seems weird that ATT wouldn't follow Apples lead and just launch both versions the same day.  

 

Seems like a missed opportunity to compete with other carriers, no?  Any reasoning you can share with us?

Hi @fidophone

 

I'm not sure why the rep said that, maybe they were referring to black or jet black phones and their shipping times, but many users that pre-ordered silver, gold and rose gold iPhone 7 Plus devices, received them on September 16.

 

AT&T has launched all models at the same time as Apple, but shipping times depend of popularity and availability from the manufacturer.

 

Thank you,

Dmitriy

It seems like since the update to ios 10, I am only able to send imessages while at work.  Nothing else has changed and I was able to send texts (green) before. Once I leave work, everything is fine and they will sned.  I have tried a ton of different fixes, but nothing seems to work.  Does anyone else have this issue?
