I did an upgrade last night to Apple's brand new IOS 7 for my iphone and ipad and gosh i wish i had never done it!!! Both devices are much slower than before even writing this text is like writing in slow motion. The batteries (despite turning off 3G and bluetooth) is getting empty faster as never experienced before! Safari denies opening pages who where accessible without problem in IOS 6.
Is there a way to install back the old 6? Have you performed the upgrade, when yes, whats your experience?

Try the forums at imore.com for tips. From what I've seen the Safari slowness is when Safari is selected in iCloud; disable that and you may experience better performance. Others there have also said after a full charge the battery life improved noticeably.

I've been closely monitoring the performance of iOS7 at the imore.com forums to determine whether or not I'll make the switch on my iPad mini and iPhone 5. So far I'm leaning no but we'll see if Apple releases some fixes; apparently this "Gold Master" version of iOS7 is still being considered a beta release so I'm hesitant to make the jump.

Well first of all, which phone do you have? I've been running iOS7 Beta on my iphone 5 for months and updated to the full release last night and have had no issues with speed on any of the updated versions during the whole trial period.

So I'm guessing people having speed issues are using older hardware. Things started getting sluggish by the time my old iPhone 4 got to iOS6.

I won't be upgrading on my iPhone 4. Reports are showing that it takes almost twice as long to open apps in iOS 7 vs. iOS 6, and 33% longer to start up the phone from power-off. I like the new features and would love to have them, but I'd rather not have a slow phone.

What device do you have? I have the 5 and it runs smoother than iOS 6. Yeah it is different, but I like it. The new colors to me are refreshing. The new app logos are a little tacky. But they pop, which makes the experience a little more enjoyable. I like the update so far. The only thing I don't like is the new control center. But that is more a result of my Otterbox case getting in the way. But I don't really have another option thanks to my job.

Directly following an Upgrade the system may still be downloading certain items in the background and re-indexing data for search.

The hours after a main version upgrade are thus not representative for normal use.

Quoting Luxair (Thread starter):
Safari denies opening pages who where accessible without problem in IOS 6.

What do you mean it "denies" opening them?

Quoting Luxair (Thread starter):
Is there a way to install back the old 6?

Not really. Upgrades often come with new mobile radio baseband firmware which cannot be reset normally, so even if you installed the old iOS version it might run into problems because it might not be able to communicate with the radio subsystem properly any more.

Quoting Luxair (Thread starter):
Have you performed the upgrade, when yes, whats your experience?

Downloading and installing took some time, but after playing with it for a while yesterday I used it as my alarm clock as usual and it still came up with 100% charge – and that is on my two-years-old 4S, with mobile and WiFi radios active all the time.

Performance seems fine, the same as on my iPad 3. I love quite a few of the changes (unlimited number of apps per folder, uninterrupted scrolling through months and years in the calendar, ...).

And this is the first time my iPhone and iPad actually feel like a consistent product, with hardware and software actually speaking the same visual language.

Hint: I like the UI best with font size set to minimum, but under Settings > General > Accessibility also Bold Text activated. This is the most legible and most content-rich combination for me.

Quoting RobertNL070 (Reply 7):
My beef is with the design and the 'fresh' colours. Ik looks as if it's been designed for children.

It's a bit like getting pushed from a ornamented baroque house into a clearly and cleanly designed Bauhaus one.

I can understand how you feel, but I still don't share your view. It's clean, essential and without embellishments, like the devices it runs on. And it works better than the old system did, which is the most essential design element of all.

Fun fact: Adoption appears to be skyrocketing – according to one survey site, already more than 40% of all iOS users seen by them is on iOS 7 as I type this. Tomorrow iOS 7 may already be on the majority of iOS devices. This is one reason why third-party support for iOS is attractive.

What about it? I like iTunes 11. Actually, it's playing music in the background as I write this.

Hint: Particularly when it "lives" on a secondary screen, it can be nice to have big cover images displayed durcing playback (basically like having the old LP cover standing next to the turntable). You can achieve that by inserting a music video into your playlist (it only works with video files with that attribute set!). When the video is done (or when you're skipping out of it), the video window turns into a cover window. This should of course (still) be an official option, but until it is again, it's an inofficial way of getting it back.

What device you have? I upgraded my iPad3. Most of the time response is ok. Changing wallpaper is painfully slow, it freezes for a minute or so. I won't try on my IP5 at least for a while.

Regarding going back, yes you can. Download old version using direct link from Apple. It is a .ipsw file. Connect to iTunes, and if you hold shift key and press iTunes restore button, it gives you option to pick the old version file.

There is a catch, this simple restore process thru iTunes works only until Apple continues to sign(kind of verification process) old iOS versions. Once Apple stops signing you cannot go back without having saved SHSH blobs of old version.

To save SHSH blobs of old version, you have to download a software called "Tiny Umbrella". With iOS 6 installed open Tiny Umbrella connect your device, it gives an option to save SHSH blobs. Save SHSH blobs for say 6.1.3/6.1.4. Once you have these you can go back to old version any time.

Hope this helps, Good Luck.

I've been running iOS7 on and off since Beta 1. It's not half bad but certainly not worth the hype. I don't care for the fluorescent icons and whatnot but there are - as Klaus and others have mentioned - some nice little tweaks. If you have an iPhone 4 (rather then a 4S+) I would suggest you stay put on iOS6.

My plan is to ride out my iPhone 5 for a couple more months then switch to an Experia. You should check them out - great handsets.

No problems here so far. Siri cut out today for a few hours, but he's working again (male sounds much better than female to me). I do wish there were a way to tone down the colors a bit.

I like the way it doesn't try to look like 3D objects, but instead actually does a decent simulacrum of parallax of different parallel planes. I always thought the shiny jellybean look was silly.

It's been working on my iPhone 5 quite well, though I think it's often ugly.

I upgraded through iTunes though, not over the air. I think over-the-air upgrade may be part of the problem, as the phone has to be working while it reconfigures itself.

One tip for those who are having trouble reading the skinny font. Go to Settings/General/Accessibility and turn on Bold. Also try a larger type face, and it will increase the font size in messages, mail, etc.

For me, makes the OS far more friendly, if not as "pretty"

After a few years with my iPhone 4 and seeing the iOS7 "upgrades," I ran happily to Best Buy to get a new HTC One Android phone this week.

You guys can sit here and lust over the look and feel and slickness of this new OS, but you people are living in the past. The HTC one runs rings around the new iPhones. Sorry.

And this should scare you as an Apple fan. The fact that so many users flocked to an upgrade so fast shows how tired they grew of the old OS and are looking for something new and exciting. A new control center, flashier icons (seriously, icons being one of the biggest improvements, really?) and "smoothness" of how things move about the screen won't do anything but drive them to new and better devices that aren't Apple driven.

IOS7 is running very smoothly on my 4S. I have the impression thought that it consumes a little bit more power despite motion effects and background processing being switched off.

As for the functionality, there are only two major issues for me:
* The calendar app in monthly view does not provide a good overlook over a day's appointments. That was better in IOS6.
* The music app now lists all songs along with the artist view (or at least I did not manage to revert this to the old style). For example, say I have 5 David Bowie albums, when I select David Bowie as artist, all albums appear and all songs in each album as well. In IOS6, only the albums appeared and songs would only show up when a single album is selected. The new display makes it much more inconvenient to select albums.

Other than that, I like the style and functionality.

Cheers,

I think going back to IOS 6 isn't an option anymore as I feel slowly getting more confortable with the system. There are still things who annoy me like the very fast battery discharge ( you can almost see decreasing the % when looking at it ) . I give you an example. I started up my phone this morning at 10:20am with a battery charge of 95% and at exactly 10:38am the battery was at 87%!!! That's quite impressive, isn't it? Keeping in mind that Bluetooth is off but Wifi and 3 G on but still a way too much juice lost.
Another problem is, how do you size the background wallpaper to fit the screen correctly on the ipad? There is a function in settings where you can adjust the background and brightness but beeing there and selecting a picture out of the photo library works but when using it as background its completely disproportionate! There is the function to adjust it manually but that doesn't seem to work because it will always appear as less clear and disproportionate as the original picture. In IOS6 that was very simple, you had a nice photo just click on the picture and add it as background and there it was as sharp and sized as the original picture.
Safari btw seems to work fine now, i think even faster as before so there is improvment

No, that has never been the case. I'm still running the same setup I've started with on my iPod Touch in 2008, and that has been backed up and restored to now the third iOS device and across all iOS versions from iOS (then iPhone OS) 2 to iOS 7 now.

But in case something should happen, you should always have a backup – if you want to use iCloud, you need to have enough space or you should revert to local iTunes backups (which are the better choice privacy-wise anyway).

This is one thing I think apple does well. If you are using old hardware they let you upgrade but it will slow it down. Each upgrade is designed to take advantage of the most powerful current devices.

I would rather this than hamstringing new devices for the sake of universal compatibility.(that's what Microsoft did with windows for years)

If you are running old hardware do not be surprised that it will run slower.

The same thing happened with me old iPhone 3. In fact I had to go back to a previous version. The issues at the time were exactly as mentioned I this post.

The upgrade runs great on my iPad 3 ..


I just wish apple would do a better job telling people with old hardware the risks to upgrading.

Really?

Because that's what happens with every new iteration of iOS, regardless of monumental change or not.

No. It just moves data to the new locations in IOS7. I upgraded my 5 without a hitch and had it backed up to ICLOUD. I also used iTunes (Just in case).

The only issue I have seen, and this is a weird one. is a coworker had his Phone number changed fro all his outgoing messenger texts. like a 6 digit number. He had to go to the genius bar.

How does a bug in the lock screen mechanism have anything to do with fingerprint security issues?

(Short-term mitigation for this bug, of course, would be to disable Control Center on the lock screen until the fix is available.)

Nope. That is nothing but a false straw man argument.

Bugs have nothing to do with the inherent security of certain protection mechanisms (or the lack thereof) and they are always a possibility. Some bugs (like this one) render an entire protection layer irrelevant irrespective of the actual mechanisms in it. Completely different issue from what we've discussed before.

As I had explained before, Apple did in fact have such a severe bug in the boot ROM of the older devices which was in fact exploited by the "jailbreaking" community and probably by others as well, but a) that bug also just let them circumvent the outer access layer (rendering the going-through-Apple route unnecessary), b) even with that bug the second encryption level remained out of reach when good passcodes were used and c) that bug has been fixed since the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. No cold break in on that route to a locked newer device has become known since then, and not for lack of intense trying.

Emphasis added. Time to accept that the standard you set for fingerprint to mean it was unsecure has hit the rest of the device.

You're confusing and conflating distinct parts of the entire security complex.

IT security is a highly complex issue with many layers and while I completely understand the impulse and desire to find that one "magic bullet" that will end all threats, such a thing does not and can not exist, unfortunately.

The one simple answer you seek just does not exist. It is in fact necessary to look at the entire complex issue to get anywhere. In the best case, most of the bases are covered by a manufacturer already, providing a decent set of ready-made solutions for good security overall, hiding most of the actual complexity behind the scenes. But manufacturers don't always explain all the intricacies and residual risks of all the available options to consumers ("Risks? You've got risks?").

And sometimes, unfortunately, manufacturers even drop the ball as with this bug, which in the entire scheme of things unhinges a part of the total security (since most of the data on the device still remains protected) regardless of the locking mechanism used (although provisional mitigation is easy for users: just disable Control Center on the lock screen).

Oversimplifications and confusion are actively dangerous – as convenient as they may seem.

Nope. Not just after one day, have used it before this week a number of times. Apple even proves it. Woke up today an email from Apple to introduce us to the new phone.

It included a 1:30 second video link. The first 20 seconds show the phone and it's design. Again, I don't think anyone builds a better phone than Apple. Look great, great quality. Mine even survived a direct fire on a glass top stove.

The next 10 seconds there is some blabber but no proof or examples of how everything thing in the new phone is useful and enhances the users experience.

The next minute it talks and shows how the finger print system works.

That's it. That's all they got. Great hardware and a finger print system. Sorry, I'm using a Smart Phone as a variety of media options, phone, internet, email, etc. I'm not buying a finger print machine.

Oh, wait, I'm sorry, the new operating system has such earth shattering upgrades as letting the camera take "square pictures." Forgot about that one... Seriously, this IOS is going to be one of Apples biggest bombs in terms of what it does for the user. If Apple charged for the upgrade, you would see dismal numbers of downloads from current phone users. Face it people, Steve Jobs is gone and so is the shine.

I'm not an Instagram type of guy, but I get the appeal – at least theoretically. To each their own.

In the end I personally tend to prefer Apple products because they don't stop at just barely ticking a box on a nominal spec sheet, but they actually think things through and in by far most cases anything that's built in actually works as intended and as it should, or they don't bother with it in the first place.

At least for me that's the way it should be.

I HATED it too, and I still do as far as appearance goes. I had access to the Beta and at first I was ready to revert back to iOS6 but I really do enjoy the (very) few new features and functionality that I never did revert and have simple gotten used to iOS7.

Say what you want about skeuomorphism, but dammit that was exactly what I LOVED about the Apple product. The fact that they went in a similar direction as the competition pissed me off. The very reason I was attracted to the iphone has now gone away. The messaging app is a good example. So flat and boring. I miss the textures, the polished three dimensional look... Makes me mad. But dammit, functionally speaking I really like iOS7 and for that reason I was never able to revert back to iOS6.

You would be far better updating via the USB cable connected to a PC/Mac - Its much safer as a backup is carried out and you don't need to have the download buffer of 3.5GB necessary to download the software to your phone then extract it to install.

The download is handled and done on the PC/Mac !

If you do go down the store they may let you connect to a Mac and use your iTunes account to sign in and do the update over a USB cable.

This is of course just anecdotal information until Apple provides some more representative numbers, but statistics on the site mixpanel show iOS 7 to be the dominant iOS version already, eclipsing the previously dominant iOS 6:
mixpanel

The relative adoption rate is apparently even faster than the one for iOS 6 a year ago, meaning that absolute adoption (the actual number of devices upgraded) is again much faster since there are many more devices capable of being upgraded to iOS 7 than there were devices capable of iOS 6 a year ago.

And this in turn means that third-party app developers can effectively target iOS 7 first and foremost with support for older iOS versions being optional or even marginal.

The mini should not have any more problems than the iPhone 4S and the iPad 3 which are working without a hitch for me (same or mostly same processor in both).

You might force reinstallation of iOS on it to get it back to a safe state, then restore from a backup if necessary.

Only specifically there?

I just re-checked – no problem on my devices; But it might indeed be a bug specific to the iPad 2 and iPad mini being the only non-Retina-devices supported by iOS 7. Possibly an issue related to the non-Retina assets in the photo app.

Or is it in any way specific to a certain photo? You might also be able to check through the mail app trying to browse the pictures from there.

At first I found some of iOS 7's visual appearance flat and two-dimensional (especially the revised text message balloons), but I agree with the poster who said that iOS 7 has a sort of Bauhaus feel. It reminds me a bit of the 1930s modernist sensibility but in a good way. As for performance I have detected no problems and my new iPhone even seems to be running faster than when I got it a few weeks ago.

I don't like the animations either. My iPhone 5 is now as bad as a Windows Phone. And yes, it is working perfectly fine! It doesn't lag or stutter, the animations just take a lot of time. On my Nexus 4 I turn animations off, and it's lightning fast. Apps open instantly. The iPhone with iOS 7 spends an abominable amount of time running the animation before the app opens.

I guess I'm lucky; I updated to iOS7 on both my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini and haven't had a single issue. The only thing I find irritating is that the titles in the "videos" section have gone AWOL; apparently Apple thinks that the movie poster itself should suffice and that doesn't work for videos converted from your own DVDs, etc.
