Topic tags/keywords: question

Anybody out there upgrade to the i-OS 7 for their i-phone 4S.
I just did and, maybe it’s just me, but I liked the old system much better.
So far this looks like a down grade to me.

it’s a huge improvement. give them some time to work out some kinks – software development is a slow process.

learn about the new features and you will find them very useful…

Big improvement. Passcode entry – number buttons fill the screen, making hitting the #s accurately an easier proposition. Eliminating background tasks – just flick the icon or page upward – no longer have to to hold, wait for icon shake, and tap a small ‘x’. App switching – faster and easier, icon + page view far more simple and obvious. Spot Light – swipe from middle of any icon page to invoke, no longer have to travel back past initial icon page. Invoke important settings from any page with a swipe, including the built-in flashlight, which I use in my wood shop all the time. Air drop…

There are more but, given above, I do not see how this can be considered a downgrade or something short of a major improvement.

When you look at the new iPhone 5c you’ll see where the new format has come from?
It does look very strange compared to the previous format. My wife and I both updated, she wasn’t happy but she is now. (Thank God)

I have an iPhone 5 and an iPad. I have upgraded my iPad so that I can try out the upgrade before I change my phone. When my daughter upgraded hers I thought it was horrible. Hated it. But the more I play with it the more I like it. I feel like the overall format doesnt look as sharp. But I’m getting used to it.

Yeah, I’m beginning to accept it and figure out how to do what I used to do.
I will have to say it’s probably better for young folks than for old cranks like me.

Still feel annoying when being disturbed cell phone calls? Don’t want this bad thing to happen again and again in your life and work? Ok, do not be anxious, the phonejammer can be your first and best selection. And if you want to know more about this kind of device, you can gain the useful information you want.

I didn’t like it at first, as it was an adjustment but now that I have a hang of things It’s OK.

I’ve ugraded the ipad and the biggest real impact that has hit me so far is the Photo app vs. iPhoto. Big changes there that I’m still trying to figure out. Photo layout is different, editing is different, slideshow not at all as easy as it used to be, etc.

OS changes are inevitable, I get that. Wish I’d see a handful of “oh, I’m so glad it does xx now!” but not yet.

My phone constantly freezes up now. Trying to hang up from calls and it will just freeze. Try to listen to voicemail and the phone freezes. Try to make calls and it will freeze. I got a new update the other day and it has yet to fix the problem.

I thought maybe an app. I had installed caused the problem but after deleting all apps. the phone still does it.

HATE IT!

Well, after a month and a half I can officially say, from my point of view, the new Apple i OS 7 SUCKS.
Some of my favorite apps don’t work any more
My wife and I constantly get the others mail, sometimes the mail of people we just casually know.
The low contrast screen make trying to see the damn thing a pain in the ass.
And now my battery won’t make it more than 3/4 of the day unless I keep it on a charger.
Good news is I can use the frigging thing for a hand warmer when the weather gets a little colder.
Way to go Apple.

After having this a couple months….I’m with you Crank…..while the “new” look is distrubing enough…my phone workd considerably slower with more issues “get stuck” than ever before. I think apple must have enlisted the Obamacare IT guys…
