I admit that I like the additional functionality in the OS, yet the bright whites and the bright colors are really annoying to me personally.  With no way to change these colors, or to dial down the bright background in iTunes11, it appears that the OS designers are more interested in everything being bright for them, while discarding the opinions of users who'd prefer a more earth-tone palette.  It's nice that people who want that brightness can have it, but what is pleasant to the eye of one person, is not necessarily pleasant to the eye of another.  In this age of technology, there ought to be options given rather than the "My way, or the highway" mentality.

Interesting, there are other reports to the contrary that IOS7 has been adopted faster than any update previously released. 

Another he said she said article.

I would expect Tim Cook to cover iOS 7 adoption and state any milestones next week before they get to product announcements.

I don't like the new ui either but had to do it for the radio. Like 6 much better.

The same can be said for Pre iOS 7. Who wanted faux felt, brush aluminum, etc? No one likes change. And this is like OS X 10.0. I'm sure they'll tone it down in later releases. I don't mind it.

I bet the uptake slows even more as people talk.  If Apple doesn't listen and react to this, there will be a price to pay moving forward.

You asked '100 people' ? :-D

Even if you weren't lying, that's not a very large sample, considering the number of people who are running it.

And how did you frame the question of your imaginary poll ?

Did you ask, 'What do you think of IOS7?'

Or was it more along the lines of. 'IOS7 is really bad, don'tcha think?'

I've seen my share of change, as my first experience on a Mac was System 7.  I know there's change, and you're absolutely right, I didn't care for them as well - but they weren't nearly as bright as what they were replaced with.  I'm not sure that they will dial down the brightness of the colors and the flood of white.  I've written Tim Cook about this issue as I think it's something many people don't like about the OS.  I've given it time, and while I enjoy the functionality, I do not enjoy the colors and white everywhere.  In this modern age, certainly something like color palette ought to be negotiable based upon the user's preferences.  This can not be seen as an extreme position on the matter.

For there to be 200 million iOS 7 activations, every single iPhone sold in the last year and a half would have to be updated. EVERY SINGLE ONE. If you include iPads, you would still have to go back to every single device sold in the last year.

 

Hate to break it to you, but that ain't happening.

 

The iPhone 4 was released over three years ago, that is the start point, not eighteen months.

With respect to IOS7:

Do you think that Tim Cook should ask Ive to issue an apology letter for a bad design or should Ive issue an apology letter for IOS7 not really being done.Maybe the latter.   Hopefully they can fix things - like bringing more contrast to the screens.

Secondly, you have mistakenly compared a single magazine to a collection of albums. For your analogy to make sense, I would have to pick up two hundred magazines in one go and then try to flip through them. A cumbersome activity that wouldn't find me the magazine I wanted as quickly as going to the rack and picking it out – and that is why Coverflow doesn't work.

It's MUCH faster to keep your eyes pinned to a spot, and move a scroller to have the various images fly by, than having to scan rows and columns of pictures, and then scroll when you reached the end of what can be shown on one screen, and then try to reorient your vision and then rinse, repeat...

With cover flow in one swift move I can scroll through hundreds if not thousands of CDs; cover flow works for individual play lists, etc. It's quick, easy, consistent.

It's much faster to search by artist or track, hit random, or search by genre…
Apple is notorious for removing stuff that folk don't use. So I suspect Coverflow went because it's a visual gimmick that people got bored of after they've seen it a few times (I used it exactly once). When Apple does this, we get a quick uproar from a handful of people posting everywhere, then everyone forgets about it.
Quote:
The tile view is a stupid thing borrowed from a resource constrained iOS, in a vain effort to make OS X look like iOS regardless of the fact that they have different operating modes and hardware constraints.

No, CoverFlow was stupid because I could only see a few album covers clearly. The album cover list gives me a page in which I can see the covers clearly, or going by your failed real-world analogy, I don't pick up my entire CD rack and try to flip through a thousand CDs. I will go to the CD I want. If I'm not in the mood for anything in particular, I'll have a random stab.
Yes, I can see why Apple Maps failed now: it doesn't open out a full-sized map of the country's entire road network and flap it around in your face while you're trying to drive.

Apple was sued about CoverFlow, and they won, but the whole thing looks like corporate told them to do away with CoverFlow in case they lose that law suit, and once they won, nobody told the developers to ditch the alternative view project.

Are you being serious? Yes, you probably are. :-(

Coverflow went because not enough people used it to make it worth keeping.

Aesthetics aside iOS 7 is an amateur piece of HI design. I'm a big fan of Jonathan Ive as an industrial designer and held out a lot of hope, based on my respect for his sensibilities, for his take on the iOS UI. Sadly, he has taught me that there is not much overlap between software HI and industrial design. Apple has lost an important, if poorly understood advantage with iOS 7. It is not unsalvageable, but Jonathan has to acknowledge his limits and bring in someone who understands HI and give them the authority to make changes. Keep the artsy design wonks at bay for a while until the HI people can clean up the mess.

I'm happy because as far as I'm concerned, it was love at first sight with iOS7, which seems rare even between Apple fans. Really, I have probably only one critic on the design and it's about the Safari icon. Function-wise search in maps still needs work and Siri needs to be faster, more reliable and have the same functions in all languages (it's too bad I can't search for movie showtimes in France for example).
post #177 of 270

Has anyone looked at the data they used for this analysis!?

They only have a sample from 45 000 sites and apps that is clearly biased in its demographics, since they only see a spike after work hours in the US. What about the rest of the world where 65% of iPhones reside? What about the problems that everyone had on first day, due to congestion, or the spike in network activity recorded? And what about the data that Apple itself presented after the first week - 200 million updated devices, which is far more than 16%, unless of course there are more than 1 billion iOS devices, ridiculously not!

And OS X was not an automatic update not installed on machines by default until 10.1.

My guess is he went to apples quartly reports and added up the iPhone, iPad and iTouch sales. ( Only in the later would you have to guess a bit). Given last Q was 32 M iPhones and 14 M iPads it sounds right. Maybe optimistic.

As for the general bias here - the confirmation bias where people refuse to believe the criticism from the trolls ( or as I call 'em iPhone users) - a good sample of opinion would be to search for "iOS 7" on twitter. It's not all roses.

I said on the first page that while I don't agree with the criticisms on that page, as I like iOS 7, it was nice to see people acting normally , finding fault with a less than perfect release as consumers, rather than tribal loyalty.

I was mistaken once again. That was on European time. When America woke up we got into Fox News mode again. All criticisms were trolls, all critics unentitled to opinions, all evidence discounted. Nobody can legitimately dislike iTunes 11. Or iOS 7. Or find fault with a clearly buggy os ( cf iMessage).

Control Center, the new notifications, swiping from left to right to go back a screen, the new Safari, the app switcher (multi-tasker), etc.

 

I would NEVER go back to iOS 6 and using iOS 5 on my iPad is awful now. :(  Well not awful, but makes it feel so dated.

 

 

 

There are plenty of people who updated and didn't like it and then tried returning to iOS6.  There was even a thread or two on Apple's discussion boards about how to revert.

 

Simple search of Apple's site for go back OS6" reveals the following:

 

https://discussions.apple.com/community/iphone/search.jspa?peopleEnabled=true&userID=&containerType=&container=&spotlight=false&q=go%20back%20OS6

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Sales data. Google it. Apple sells ~33 million iPhones per quarter. ~14-17 million iPads. iPod Touches are an insignificant amount. Now... Lets apply some simple math...

 

That's why I said if you just went with iPhones, you're a year and a half. If you include iPads, you're a full year.

Hmm...I use it every day on my iPhone 5 without any issues. Also while Ive no doubt provided the vision for iOS 7 it wasn't designed in a vacuum. He's not the only one involved and I'm sure wasn't the only one who had final sign off. People forget that Craig Federighi has responsibility for iOS and the human interface designers at Apple report to him, not Ive. From everything we know this was a collaborative effort, not just Ive dictating.

And if iOS 7 is so horrible and such a poor piece of software design where are all the stories of Apple software engineers/designers who complained about it or left the company over it? Believe me there are plenty of websites (including this one) that would publish rumors like that in a heartbeat if they existed.

Is iOS 7 a completely polished piece of software. No. But that would be near impossible to achieve in 7 months. Should Apple have waited until 2014 to release it? Maybe, but I think they'd be in a worse place now had they kept the iOS 6 style interface another year. Also there's nothing preventing Apple from iterating on iOS 7 and making some changes before iOS 8. I think Apple needs to be updating software more than once a year anyway.

Apple has already sold around 185 million iOS devices since October 2012, and that is without the last 3 months which probably added another 45 million devices, all of them updatable to iOS7.

Add another 190-200 million devices sold between October 2011 and October 2012, most of them updatable and you easily get 400 million devices. And there would still be several million devices sold before that date that could be updated to iOS7.

So, 200 million devices getting iOS7, easy!!!

I updated my iPad, but find none of the new features worthwhile. It is just a different way of doing things, some a little better and some worse. I decided that it hasn't been worth my effort to update my iPhone and wife's iOS devices. At some point I might if compatibility becomes an issue, but I have not been limited yet and don't feel like I am missing anything.

I'm not updating to iOS7 because the color scheme of it is just frigging ugly. It looks like it was designed by pre-teen girls for pre-teen girls. And now I see that it has automatic updates to the iOS?

Never. I'm sticking with iOS6.

And I hope that Apple doesn't make their OSX more like iOS. It's bad enough that I'd rather use 10.6 over 10.8. I wonder what the heck 10.9 is going to bring?

IOS7

I have had a few issues since upgrading (primarily with messaging) but overall I love IOS7.  I absolutely love the new easy access notifications and control panels.  My eyesight in low light is awful, so I love the new flashlight access via the control center where I don't even have to unlock the screen.  I am still trying to figure a few things out but overall I love the new IOS7.

Are you saying it like there are specific users with 3GS’ who can’t update or that the 3GS can’t have it at all?

Because you’ve already had four versions of iPhone OS/iOS. That’s more than any other iPhone (save the 4, which won’t get iOS 8) and more than any previous iPhone. iOS 7 would run like absolute trash on the 3GS, or iOS 7 wouldn’t be able to have ANY new features, ruining its purpose for everyone else. Gotta buy a new device.

As Ppietra notes, your numbers don't add up. The fact that you extrapolated 6 quarters worth of data from just one quarter is a huge red flag.

I don't know enough about Jobs or his work at Apple to presume to speculate about what he would or would not do, but speaking specifically to the example you raised and how it relates to the subject at hand:

 

OS X eventually became a truly wonderful thing, but it took four generations to get there. 10.0 replaced a mature and well-understood UI with an inconsistent combination of ingenious and poorly-thought-out functions and controls. So, while it was ultimately a step in the right direction, the complaints from users were perfectly reasonable in the days before Tiger.

 

I expect the same will be true of the evolution of iOS. iOS6 to 7 may be to portable devices what OS9 to OS X 10.0 was to Mac -- a foundation for what will ultimately be a great thing, but so far is just a mashup of some genius, some shit.

And I also have no doubt Apple will take customer feedback in to consideration. Probably more so than they ever would have under Steve Jobs.

Ha ha, right.  They don't use terma like "flat"  They us statements like, "I hate this",  "I can't see it very well now",  "I keep changing my picture (they mean wall paper) to make the icons easier to see",  "I wish I could go back" ,  I'm not making this up, and don't care if you don't believe me.

Why yes it does, and I now use the darkest wall paper, outer space theme, black at the bottom so the favorites bar is the least obtrusive it can be (gray), and the stars can enjoy the parallax effect.  Meanwhile the screen full of folders get to be muddy gray, can't say I'm a fan at all.

There's no "black at the bottom" of the iOS 7 space theme it is starry dark at the top, with a lighter nebula at the bottom. Similar in orientation to the aurora borealis with it's light green tints at the bottom with the dark sky top. The same with the space view of earth: bright clouded earth at the bottom, space at the top left...

 

The solid fields look blue to me though that's on a 5s.... so the tint might vary but the bottom not being dark won't be dependent on the model...

Wow, so you're refusing to upgrade to a superior version of iOS because of the colours and the fact you gain automatic updates to ensure you always have the latest version, which I might add brings with it security enhancements and hardening?

 

And you're saying you prefer OS X 10.6 to 10.8? Talk about an old dog who can't learn new tricks. Fine, stay with iOS 6, hope it crashes and burns on you and you're forced to go with iOS 7. Security is only as strong as it's weakest link, and people like you are the weakest link in the chain.

Have a bad weekend?  

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."
