The iOS7 upgrade is either installed on a device or it's not. Apple doesn't push a copy to the iDevices and have it sit their until you want to install it or not. What Apple does do it push a notification to your devices letting you know an upgrade is available by putting a badge on the "Settings" app.

Yeah, they do. You can choose not to verify and install immediately after downloading it. Then when you go to verify, it won’t have to redownload.

Apple doesn’t download in the background, but you can download without installing.

They dont automaticall install any os upgrade, you will be asked if you check in software update before anything is installed and even then you have to push the button to do so.

They did not automatically install anything. I didn't say that. They did, however, download it to my devices without me requesting it. Check out this screenshot, showing the update as "downloaded". (maybe they have me confused with John McCain 1tongue.gif )



I clicked the install button right after taking the screenshot and it went straight to "verifying update", no internet activity showing on my DSL modem.

I now have my 5S and I love it, the touch lock is everything I'd hoped for, really solid performance!.  My house is divided on IOS7, my wife and hi-schooler won't upgrade cause they don't like the overly bright themes and animations.  My college daughter away out of state took the plunge, she's a graphic artist and tells me she would like to go back to the darker themes and folders that actually hold a bunch of apps on one screen.  I love 99% of the new features but really don't care for the overly bright screens either.

 

I'm not surprised at the adoption rate, Apple products are a snap to update so most will because they have never been burned by an Apple upgrade to date.

 

I won't say that the new look is a home run, cause I like black devices and darker more artistic themes, but the OS is pretty darn solid, a few apps are crashing that didn't before but that's to be expected.

If the screen looks overly bright; turn down the brightness!!! sheeeesh!

Ars and a few others have reviews on this subject. The reviews tend to highlight that the iPhone 4, given that it's about half as fast as the 4s, does not quite have the juice to run iOS 7 as well as the reviewers had hoped. Some features, such as transparencies, have been removed. Moreover apps open a touch more slowly in iOS 7 and some animations are not super smooth.

 

I was satisfied with iOS7. As far as I can tell, most of the "slowness" has to do with iOS 7 being programmed to have more animations and slower ones. I would not really notice the slow frame rate for animations unless I paid attention. I appreciate the convenience of features found in iOS 7.

But how many of those people are shipped and not sold?

Any "slowness" is not noticeable at all.

Wow! For real? You're not kidding, right? There's a badge on my wife' IP4 but I warned her not to touch it.

I updated my 4s on day 1. I must say it is actually faster!!! Than it's predecessor. I think it's a really cool upgrade and would definitely recommend it. Don't read the shit in the press, this is a huge leap forward and I love all the tweaks, the only thing I don't like is the blur behind the folders would have much preferred a dark translucent overlay, and not comfortable with the calendar yet although it'll take a while to adjust.

Not true. The 4s is actually faster under iOS7.

I have one complaint about iOS 7 on the iPhone. It's that the boot screen is white with a black apple logo. It makes turning your phone on in the morning a little painful for the eyes

Why the HECK are you turning off your phone?! Don’t do that.

Really?  Really?  The only thing worse than too bright white-on-white is muddy white-on-white.  Don't get me wrong, it has it's place but I would prefer to be able to choose.

 

Now having used IOS7 for over a couple of weeks on my 5 and now 5S, I'm a bit baffled at the different presentations of the dial pad and keyboard.  In some apps it's the "classic" version, others its the washed out white.  The dial pad is sometimes white-on-white and other times white-on-black like during a call.  It would be cool if it could shift theme based on ambient light or manual switch.

I live 1000 miles away from anybody who could conceivably want to reach me in the middle of the night. There's nothing I could do anyways so I turn it off

Maybe you should move. 1smile.gif

Perhaps you could just boot it up and place it face down or just walk away from it. Also there isn't any harm in keeping it on.

No matey, not kidding.
No lag typing or anything like that for me. Also installed on iPad2 - all good.
