Apple releases iOS 7.1 with CarPlay support, Siri and Touch ID improvements - Page 3

post #81 of 136
Has anyone else noticed that the speak selection voice has not changed to match the new Siri voices?
post #82 of 136

One minor, weird thing that is a bit jarring: the bottom tray (with the gray background) on the home screen now has black lettering on my 5S (all else it white).

 

However, on a 4 that I simultaneously updated, the text stays white (btw, it's quite amazing how much faster the 5S is compared to the 4).

 

Anyone else have this issue?

 

Add: Other than that, I am loving the update. I have switched to the lady with the English accent. She seems to pronounce my name better than the American one.

iOS 7 is such a huge step back for iOS. Apple should have never let go of Scott Forstall. Steve Jobs would never allow this garbage.

For one, the memory system is so screwy, switching between apps, they constantly reload and I lose my information many times, even if background app refresh is turned on. This is maddening when I use my running app, as the GPS can't keep up when the app is not at the front. Also, switching back to Safari, pages constantly reload, which is a pain if you are copying something from another app into a Safari text field. Woops, there goes all that text you entered. Hope it wasn't important!

 

The buttons are so small and there's no response to what you are pressing. Previous iOS had more depth and would "flash" when you touched a button on the screen so that you know you are touching what you want. 

 

Then there's the constant crashing and resetting with the Apple logo. Happens on my iPad and my iPhone. Reminds me of kernel panics in OS X 10.0. 

 

The keyboard has been moved around, so constantly I am touching return, or period, instead of the space bar. What genius thought of changing the size of the keys on something people have been using for 7 years??

 

The icons are ugly and look like something designed for PlaySkool. 

 

The animations and transitions are slow.

Disappointed to see there is still no fix for the "Messages (Saved)" bug that takes up 3.6GB on my phone.  Deleting iMessage threads don't remove these "saved" messages for some reason.  Maybe iOS 7.2...

Yes why there is no swipable erase messages right in the usage section I will never understand. Especially for other apps. Why can't I just deleted the saved data of an app without having to delete and reinstall completely.

 

Anyone know how to report iOS bugs? Found one with pulling on notification banners ang going into the notification center.

This is due to the "increase contrast" setting in General > Accessibility, which seems to be the default setting after the update. Just switch off.

Has "BUTTON SHAPES" always been available in the accessibility settings?

I turned it on and I love it.

I hate the floating words buttons, now they are back to the way they were.

It's new. Thanks for mentioning.

So a lot of fixes are to negate the original premise of iOS 7 ( and remember the iOS 7 beta was even more radical in its lack of shadows and contrast).

My update was ~ 271 MB.

Text size on the notification center looks considerably larger and I have my text size setting at the smallest level.



They also finally made the clear button for notifications bigger and easier to read

 

Nice. I'm still reading the EULA....

Seriously, even though it was probably a simple quick fix, this is sooo trivial and much more a personal organizational problem than a technical one. I guess some business users could possibly carry 10,000 emails for business or legal issues, but unread ?

I currently have 13,395 unread emails in my Outlook mailbox at work.  But we're not allowed to connect our devices to the Exchange server any more so it's moot.

Are there any cars available today I can do an CarPlay test with?

You can restore it to the original via settings, general, accessibility, increase contrast and switch of 'reduced transparency'

It's not happening on any devices that I have. I actually enabled for my mom and she isn't seeing it either.

I don't have this issue.

Hmm

I just turned on the "button shapes" in accessibility… That coupled with the dark colors option and I really like bringing back the buttons to life.

But I tried out maps and I'm not facing the issue that you are.

Were you running the beta? Devices running the beta get a full image download while those on 7.0.6 or earlier get a delta update.

post #101 of 136
YES! They fixed the incoming call buttons was confusing to answer before. Now it's nice clear circle buttons that let you know which options to choose.

And they are left and right.

This change may be one of the UI changes to make the iPhone work in the CarPlay mode more seamlessly.

That was one slow download today at noon PST. The first thing that hit me was the BOLDEST system wide font I'd ever seen. I had forgotten when I upgraded from iOS 6 to 7 I went into Settings/General/Accessibility and turned on Bold Text because the font was so hard to read with these old eyes. Apparently this must have been commonly done. When I turned it OFF in 7.1 it looks pretty much like it did turned on in 7.0 4.

Much faster on iphone 4 ... Still stuck on ios 6 on the 3GS !!! 1frown.gif

I'm curious, do you intend to read all of them ? If so, are you catching up and brought it down from 20,000 ?

Did you just get back from a vacation ? Did you merge accounts ?

I just can't fathom how you got there.

Hopefully one day they will do the same for unread email badges as well. I find it somewhat annoying to read email on my iMac yet have badges on the laptop as well as all my other iDevices.

Have you installed 7.1?

Anyone who thinks that an OS is a finished product, has something to learn. Compare OS X 2000, to OS X 2014, and you'll see differences, major and minor. It's a matter of refinement, not negation of anything.

What Microsoft did with Win 8 was a negation of what they did before. The difference is radical. Some love it, and some hate it. Now Microsoft is adjusting it. Android is different with each release. That's the way it works.

Mine doesn't. I assume an older device includes the 5.

Ha, I just went to test out Siri's new voices and asked Siri to "tell me a story". She gives a great answer, try it.

Took three tries for her to give it up (“What, again?” and “I’m sure I’ve told you already.”), but that’s great.

However, since Apple has let us down once again by not meeting our outlandish prognostications, we are urging our clients to SELL.

Samsung, with its lack of filters for the plethora of features it blindly slaps onto and into its phones, proves much more compelling for consumers who are easily delighted by senseless options, which they forget about by the time they arrive home from their local Android bazaar.


I'm glad you're not my dumb ass  big bank broker.

They totally missed the big Apple stock price rise, they still are MS Windows hooked and think Apple is just a shot in the dark.  So they repeatedly recommended I dump my Apple shares at a much lower price than the recent price.

 

My big bank broker wouldn't even understand what that android Rat is.

My android friends don't even hear this Rat news, they hardly are on the net. In fact one friend android user doesn't even know how to use the net, even though she pays dearly for data service. She's never been a computer user, but was attracted by the big Samsung screen at a lower price than the smaller screen iPhone.  I hope she at least  texts!

I've got good news and bad news...

 

Good: I was able to improve the performance of my iP4 with iOS7 substantially.

Bad: It was a hassle.

 

I just wiped the phone clean. Reinstalled iOS7 like it was a brand new device. It meant I had to reinstall all my apps and recopy all my media and reset all my preferences and recreate my mail accounts and/etc. but the phone is now more responsive. Still not as good as it was with iOS6, but significantly better.
