Who's excited for iOS 7?

Hey, all!

 

Have you guys heard about the new iOS 7 update that’s coming out soon? I know I can’t be the only one out there excited about it. I saw this article on USA Today, and it looks like this release is going to give us a totally different iPhone experience.

 

What do you guys think?

Suspect it is going to break a load of the apps out there, hopefully the authors of the app will have updates available soon

New UI effects are my favorite features so far.

Me! I can't wait for Sept 10th! I was very tempted to be one of the iOS 7 guinea pigs testing out betas, but the $99 fee kinda put me off! Smiley Tongue

I am excited also. Waiting for OS 7! But I am waiting for something else in my locale to arrive, but that's another topic.

That was a wise choice.  The program isn't designed to be a $99 buy in to beta test, it is designed to be for developers to have early access so they can try to get their apps ready for the new iOS release, hopefully before the actual release date, or at least soon there after.  From the developers I talk to, even the ones who have paid the money and have legit access to the beta, you don't really want to put this on your only iPhone until Apple has released it anyway.  There is too big of a chances that it will leave you without a wirking iPhone for a couple weeks (or longer) depending upon the circumstances.  Most developers I know who are running it, are running it on devices that are for their testing only, so if it craps out, they aren't left without a working iPhone.

Re: Who's excited for iOS 7?

I'm honestly not that excited by it. It's nice to see something new, but I just love the way the current OS is (I'm still on plain 6.0). I'm used to it and know how to do everything quickly and easily, just what I like. I think I'll stick with iOS 6 for a while still and let some of my friends try it out first.

You know what they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

I will download it when available and especially like the flip up control screen instead of going to settings and turning things on and off.

Re: Who's excited for iOS 7?

Does anyone know if the call blocking feature in iOS 7 integrates with AT&T or does it simply answer and hang up on blocked numbers?

Either way, I've been waiting for that feature for years.

not going to bother with it until every app I use is verifed to work on IOS 7, have already sent notices to our customers that are still on the Apple based vertical market software to not upgrade to the IOS of the devices that run our software.Which given the amount of QA and validation that is required looks like about 30 - 60 days since this all has to be run on devices that have the public release software on them.

Can not help it went to the Apple web page and looked at the new features and realized I could in fact use half of these right now .

Let me rephrase my previous post, I'm excited for iOS 7, but have to get used to how things will work on my iPhone 5, or something. Everybody else, also. But what I really waiting for is AT&T LTE service in my home town, but that is another topic.Smiley Wink

Re: Who's excited for iOS 7?

IOS 7 is way different from iOS 6 in appearance, and some functions.

Rumor has it might be real eased Sept. 18th, but I'm hoping its sooner than that.
