    Oh, yes! Certainly.

    I rather think that FMF will get an update to match by/on the 18th, just that it wouldn't have happened in the GM.

    But might because of … just saying … ;)

    P.S. You folks won't have Dick Applebaum to kick around much longer... I'm changing my name to Miley!

     

    I like that unlock, and my mom would too on her iPad. Can't wait for the release date.

     

    Isn't Miley a girl's name? You're going from Dick to Miley, whats going on here?? ... just kidding, enjoy.

    I seem to have a slight lag on the phone options in iOS 7 since the first beta on my iPhone 5.

     

    If I select 'Recent Calls' and then move to 'Favourites', the next time I open the Phone app, I see 'Recent Calls' and it then dissolves to 'Favourites', which was my last selection.

     

    Is this by intent, or is there an actual lag? Hope it is fixed in the GM.

    iOS 7.......sigh. Guess I'll be the only one to still complain, but I can't help it. I don't even care about the icons anymore, but those colours, aaaargh! Looks so girly, like a mix of Care Bears, Barbie, and My Little Pony. Still gonna update though, with a heavy heart that is......

    You're not the only one.  I find the colors very repulsive.  They are more suitable for an eight year old girl's play room.

    Where's the downvote button…


    As a developer, you should know that.



    It's not part of the OS. Why would it be updated in the GM?

    I'm not a developer, I downloaded it for free from a site, mega something or other.

    So will I have to uninstall it or can it just be updated?

    Yeah, why should we help you, then? You illegally obtained prerelease software and you expect to be treated like someone who paid?

    Have been trying the GM on my iPhone 5 since it was made available....have nobody else noticed that the GM release really drains your battery?
    Beta 1 was terrible like that, but it has gotten a lot better and almost perfect until the GM. Anybody else seeing this? A devloper friend of mine have also experienced the same thing...so I guess it's not only related to me.

    Excellent then I can preview its compatibility with my black bezel verus a white one. My choice having been narrowed to silver versus gray at the moment.

    People will always complain about change...I'm sure people can find all sorts of little design niggles to whine about. But when you compare it to iOS 6, it's a huge improvement hands-down. iOS 6 just looks heavy, obscured (e.g. lock screen that only shows 1/2 the wallpaper), and outdated.

    I think after a month or two people will just get used to it (like Lightning ports and natural scrolling) and it'll be weird to go back.

    Why? Of what benefit is downloading from BT when you can get the update directly on the phone or... and this is a bit far out there... iTunes?

     

    This isn't Android we're talking about here, it's iOS where it's so damn easy to get hold of an update for your phone for FREE.

    Anyone who says they are downloading the beta versions from a BT site ahead of the GM release and is not a developer is either lying or taking their security and throwing it out the window. To run a dev release of iOS7 and also to run the GM candidate, your iOS device has to be registered with a developers account. If it is not the installer will not load on your device. If you downloaded it from a BT site they have to go in and remove that security function and at this point, there is no telling what other parts they fiddled with. Only a foolish person would load that to their phone for use in any serious manner. :err:
