    This contradicts every report I have seen since the iOS7 launch.  And, why does it stop at Day 7?  

     

    I don't need AppleInsider to jump on the speculative bandwagon without doing better analysis of all the facts and use of some judgement.  Please do not go down that fuc**** road

    Secondary thought all the "white" sucking the juice of our batteries? Yes I could reverse the screen but that is too dark.

    Using more white does not affect battery life on standard LCD displays. It technically takes more energy to make black since the LCD must block out the backlight which is always on. AMOLED does use less energy with black screens.

    Are you seriously full of bullshit, or just pretending to be full of bullshit whilst actually just full of regular shit???

     

    If you're that closed-minded and incapable of seeing 2 feet in front of you, then keep your trolling trap shut and leave, sick of people like you commenting when you haven't the SLIGHTEST clue WTF you're talking about!


     

    You mad?

We should adjust the numbers by the percent that aren%u2019t even in play.

     

    Good point.

    Just google around.


    Hey, just because YOU think it's horrid, doesn't make it so for everyone else... Case in point, I believe iTunes 11 is a MASSIVE improvement in almost every usability respect, and am THANKFUL to the all-mighty cyber-gods that it finally got an overhaul!

     

    You seem to comment in such a way as to seemingly try forcing your opinion on everyone else, and demean all those who don't agree with you.

     

    Why don't you scurry on along back to BGR where people like you belong!

    "I won't update to the new OS because it is ugly, it is slow, it is <<insert non-sense reason here>>. "

    Pretty much the same things were said about Mac OS X by Mac OS 9 users.

    iOS 7 is v1.0 of the new user experience. It's bound to make some uncomfortable just simply because it is different. In two years everyone will be on this new iOS and we'll all look back and laugh about how ugly iOS 6 was. Just like we laugh about how ugly Mac OS 9 was.

    By what measure is the 5c a disaster??? and how are you privy to what Tim Cook's calculations regarding demand were pre-release? Are you on the Apple board? By all accounts the 5s is selling better than the 5 and the 5c is selling better than the 4s last year. I think that is exactly what Apple had in mind. I would be more concerned if the 5c was selling at a higher percentage because it could indicate poor demand for the flagship 5s. I think people that think the 5c is a disappointment don't undersatnd Apple's business model. I find it humerous that no matter how many times Jobs used to say it and now Cook says that Apple is not concerned with market share, people still freak out when Apple doesn't mindlessly attack the low end market to gain market share.

    However, pace aside, people will eventually update.

     

    You're right... give it 2 years.  8-)

    Yes, there are still some things I don't particularly like about iOS 7, but on the other hand I actually am liking it a lot more than I initially thought I would. There were things I didn't like about iOS 6 also! iOS 7 is like a reboot for all Apple devices and I think they were right to do things differently since Steve's death.

    OS 9 to OS X was a huge jump, much greater than iOS 6 to iOS 7.

     

    The benefits just aren't as obvious.

     

    By the way... OS X v1 was a dog with fleas that garnered lots of negative press... right alongside all the talk of how Apple was moving in the right direction.

    That's the kind of people who comment on these forums - they see a different opinion, take everything literally and lose control like rabid dogs. Even though I am sure some heroin addicts would love to tell you how good its "high" is.

    I stand corrected in my first post :D

    This is horse manure.  I have a huge library, and iTunes 11 is much more responsive for me.  It's very easy to configure it to work almost exactly like iTunes 10, but I don't, because 11 uses space more efficiently.  I don't need a big sidebar of playlists when I'm not working with playlists.

     

    It sounds to me like you've taken a bunch of reactionary peoples' opinions to heart without really giving it an honest go yourself.  Losing the sidebar was very alarming to a lot of people, and they lacked the initiative to find the option in the view menu.  How about you?

    IOS7 is unquestionably the best iOS yet. And I am not saying this to mock Tim Cook. Sure there are bugs, but bugs are born to be zapped. 

     

    Those call it ugly are missing the point. Furthermore, they should ask themselves if anyone has hired them for their designer skills lately.

     

    There are so many wonders about this iOS version. I will name three that are reshaping users' lives and habits, perhaps without you even knowing about it.

     

    1. It is the first and only mobile OS that really takes advantage of Retina caliber Display.

    2. Look at how all relevant apps are being updated to conform. I'd argue that some apps look better than iOS itself but developers have less to contend with than Apple.

    3. iBeacons

     

    If you don't appreciate iOS7, you don't understand software. Apple has a lot of work to fix the bugs and clean up the look. But iOS7 is something special. As for releasing it too early? This is nothing like Maps. Imagine if Apple broke away from the one iOS update per year cycle?

    There's also probably a few heroines that you don't like and aren't good for you.

    I have it running on both an iPhone 4 and an iPad 4 and I don't have any problems with either. Neither device has "blue screened", and neither device is having any of the other problems other than my iPhone 4 does need to get charged a little more often, it's almost 2 years old and that battery doesn't last forever. Other than that, it's NOT horrible to use, just a little different. Some of the new features I like. If there are bugs on it, I'm sure they'll be fixed with the next bug release, but I'm sure most or all of these bugs will be fixed before Thanksgiving. At least we don't have to wait a year for a bug fix like Windows or cross our fingers that the device actually even gets updated like Android.

    This kind of fallacious argument doesn't really help here - I don't need to try heroine in order to know that it is bad.
    That analogy is a bit harsh.,, I didn't like iOS 7 at first but after a few weeks I certainly would not go back to iOS6
