iOS 7

iOS 7 is out, but I'm having a difficult time downloading it.  It keeps crashing, I suspect Apple's servers are being overloaded.

I have the 4s and downloaded iOS7 earlier today without any problems. Does anyone know if Apple brought back the weather widget in the notification center? I read online it was there in the beta version but when I pull down the screen it's not there and I can't find it anywhere.


downloaded in 4 minutes, 35 minutes to install, a life time of wishing that there was a way to go back

Since this isn't the Apple support forums, I will mention that there are rumors if you still have your iOS 6.x.x ipsw file around, that there is a short window where you can force "upgrade" your iOS v7 device with that older iOS file, but only because Apple still has not rolled out the upgrade to all customers, so some customers are still only seeing iOS 6.1.x in their software update.  I have not tried this myself, but I have read reports of others doing it...

Re: iOS 7

My phone couldn't find the finale update for iOS 7
It came up with a error but once I plugged into the PC
I noticed iTunes needed updated before anything worked and it did, I dislike the new iTunes there isn't a option to add a folder of mp3s you have to drag one by one, but then I found you can drag files and put them in the add area and sync which is the same so I'm not
That annoyed anymore!

Re: iOS 7

I enjoy iOS7, there were couple of things I didn't like but I fixed them:

 

1. I didn't like new skinny fonts everywhere, found an option for Bold text in Accessibility, makes them look the same as they were before, everywhere except keyboard as far as I can tell.

 

2. There were all of my purchased (but not downloaded) songs in music, many of which I didn't want on my iPhone (cool thing about that is that you can now stream your songs from iTunes without downloading them (works with Movies too)), so my music app looked too busy. Easy fix: in Settings - Music, there is a new option called "Show All Music", unchecked it and I'm back to normal.

Re: iOS 7

I really like the fact all my videos are in one place now under photos much easier to find.

Re: iOS 7

One thing I have noticed that I dislike is that with the new feature to allow folders to have multiple pages, you are now limited to 9 items per page, so it makes my iPhone 5 feel like the screen has shrunk, and it just feels like its more crowded.

 

I have also noticed that when I am in the mail app, if I move a message to a folder, it seems to scroll the list of folders a few lines each time.  This becomes real noticeable when you have several messages in your inbox that you read and file one at a time, but they all go into the same folder.  Eventually, the destination folder scrolls of the screen and you have to scroll it back on to move the next message into that folder.

 

Every app I have tried so far have all worked for me except one.  The Weather Channel app crashes on load every time for me.  I do have a couple other apps that I can generally cause them to crash, but they are stable for the most part.Most of the apps that crash happen when I am trying to change screens in the app while it is still loading/drawing the current screen.

[ Edited ]

Hate IOS 7, not going to upgrade my phone and have already replaced the ipad with a MS Surface 64GB running Windows 8. Going to recommend that none of the corporate iphones be upgraded and put the IQ/CQ/PQ validation of the vertical market apps on low priority. Also the first time I have seen major websites publish the method to restore back to the previous version of the IOS

Re: iOS 7

The compass is better along with Theodalite if you have that app installed.

The new camera functions are neat, wish I had the slow-mo thats in the 5s with the 10 shot burst.

So far the only thing I wish I could change would be the white background.

you can, was able to change it to a star field on the ipad before I bought the surface to replace the ipad, did not see anyway to put a custom in but did not really dig very deep

Re: iOS 7

The background I would like to change would be iCal and Notes to a mild grey or off white without changing screen brightness and contrast because movies and photos look better in the default setting.

I agree with you. I don't particularly care for the new "bubblegum" look of the OS itself, as dwill05 described. I hated iOS 6 last year at first because it screwed up my ability to send/receive MMS, but the issue has since been fixed. I wanted to give iOS 7 a chance and possibly still might, but it looks like my iPhone 4 will be staying on iOS 6.0 for the rest of its life should I eventually sell it to someone that may update it to iOS 7. It's hard to believe the 4 will be phased out of new OS updates next year based on past updates, just like how they pulled the plug on the 3GS. 

 

You know what they say - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Re: iOS 7

Whether certain owners like it or not iOS7 has a faster adoption rate than iOS6 had so I guess the majority likes it because with all the articles and screen shots they certainly had enough info to see if they wanted to stay or upgrade.
