iTunes finally completed a successful download of iOS 7 in 3.4 minutes :D

Coolness. :)

 
OTOH, as I said somewhere else, iTunes Radio just played a Ke$ha song ... so? :)
 
PS: My fault, as my seed song was a Britney Spears song.  I have no one to blame but myself.  Heh.

Here's my suggestion to AAPL: queue downloads proportional to how much money the apple ID user spends. If you're a good customer, you go to the front of the line. Banks do this. Airlines do this. Hey, maybe AAPL could have a dedicated server for shareholders?

At first I kept getting the "Error downloading" message until it finally took.  Downloading, preparing the update, and actual installation all took about an hour and a quarter.  

 

Just beginning the fun now.

Not doing it. I am perfectly happy with 6.1.3. Plus I don't have enough space left to put it in anyway. And I am NOT taking out any music music only to find out that there are all sorts of bugs, and I can't go back. Not going to happen.

OK,  finally installing.  Is it my imagination, or did the installation bar click from the old "thicker" one to the new thinner one, more in line with iOS7?

Somewhat short-sighted of you... You can always put your music BACK once the update is complete, so you're not going to loose anything!

 

Also, been using iOS 7.0 GM since Sept 10, and although some bugs persist, they are not deal-breakers by any means, and I've come to realize just how much better 7.0 is!

 

You should get out of your comfort zone and try it!

Honestly, even as a non-military American, I've always used a 24-hr clock on my computer.  Now, I'm just so used to it that I can't imagine anything else.

Suite yourself :) Why bother posting that, in a place were everyone's talking about moving to iOS 7.. Weird , Mr. Dino :D

It says it downloaded for my 5 (after several tries, still can't get it on my mini), but when I try to install I get: "Software Update Unavailable." Anyone know what that is about?

Yet more complexity.  Events, Albums, and now Moments.

Apple, please just pick two of those and go with that.  Three is too many.

Update 2: "Update Failed!" 1frown.gif Starting over.

Final Update: Downloaded, installed and running.

Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Good luck everyone... I'm off to explore!
I'm guessing iOS 7 will be the largest OS upgrade in history - what do you think, 100+ million people trying to upgrade right now!? LOL With iOS 7 going as far back as the iPhone 4, that's potentially 550-600 million devices.

 

If they'd made the update available in each region early, this would not have happened. I'd have been happy to do the download at 5:00am this morning.

Only now it looks like it went backwards. So I'm certain my eyes can't draw a perpendicular line. If I draw a line from the ambient light sensor, to the left edge of the home button, the point at which that line strikes the progress bar is displaced no more than two mm from the progress indicator. If it is any less than 2 mm I know that it has progressed, and certainly if it passes the point of intersection I will know that there was progress, I'll just know it. Oh, big jump there. My geometry was unneeded. Now, though, if I draw a line from the right edge of the speaker to the right edge of the home button..."

...at least, I hope everyone else is doing this.

My update is that my download is finished, it has rebooted, and the progress bar is now even with the point of intersection between the progress bar and a line that passes through the upper right corner of the screen that is tangent to the left edge of the home button. 1smile.gif

 

Hey, were you just watching me!

Oh Apple, you think of everything.

Put all your music in iCloud with iTunes Match and remove off the iPhone. I did that for all my devices as I had over 60 gigs. Works perfectly.

You can quit and start over it picks up where it left off. I did that about five times, even on the verification let alone the download. But now done.

Working here.  Been fumbling around trying to figure out how to quit apps though, the way going to the active apps on the bottom, pressing an icon and clicking the x used to do.    RTFM time.   :  )

 

Kind of liking it, but bummed that it still takes 20 actions to delete a contact.

Simply start releasing at midnight for each country, no problems that way

Then everyone would just change their timezone to Tokyo in the settings and get the update almost a whole day early, no?

If it gets in your way can be toggled off in apps by going to settings. Some apps it is a real pain. Personally I'd like the ability to deselect by app rather than globally. To access if not on in apps remember you can exit an app and use it the desk top page by double clicking the home button.

It's very fast on my 4s. Maybe check spotlight in settings (you can try limiting what is indexed), it maybe reindexing and speed up when done. I also off loaded all music to iCloud with iTunes match so far less for Spotlight to deal with.
