I see www.icloud.com has had a tickle up too.

Do have to laugh that the vibe from other staff at work was that it looked like Samsung now.
So many people don't even know it's Android, they just think it's Samsung.
Regardless, my work iPhone now looks like it's running Android, the version that's been out for a year or so!

Do love how it feels like a whole new phone!
Find that top down thing when switching webpages a bit weird, not entirely convinced I like or need that perspective.

I've seen it on an iPhone and thought it looked great on the phone but after using it all day on iPad 2 my verdict is... HATE IT! Laggy, crashes, don't like the interface and the colours make me feel seasick. I might have given it more time but I had forgotten to save SHSH Blobs and didn't want to miss the window of opportunity for downgrading.  The crunch for me was simple - my battery was draining out really quickly. 

I've rolled back to 6.1.3 and will wait and see what the next bugfix brings. I'm not convinced that iOS7 is ready for the iPad yet.

I can live with the bland look but Im finding the contrast and brightness difficult. Background too light, hard to see white labels on the homescreen, if I correct the background, the icons are low lit. Other screens too much white background

I have found it working fine on both my iPhone 4 and iPad 2nd gen, although overall feel the iPhone handled it better.

I have noticed a couple of times apps using the old keyboard layout. Why would that happen? I always thought the app accessed the devices keyboard.

Also, I have noticed they took the "next" button (tab equivalent for filling out forms) away from the keyboard which is super annoying. Anyone notice this too?

Dairyxox: For example the desktop version of pricespy when applying product filters, nearly drove me crazy it was so slow/unresponsive before, is much better now.


It may be worth going to iOS7 just for that...

I upgraded my iPhone 5 yesterday.  It works nicely, but has anyone else noticed the battery drains really fast?!!!! I'll be lucky to get a full day out of it now!

You can try turning some things on like Reduced Motion, and off like background app refresh and updates, dynamic backgrounds, etc.

antoniosk: Microsoft has just updated outlook.com to use imap4 and not pop3; my hotmail account was using pop3 and really causing the ipad to lag. Have removed the account and setup the account again, which defaults it to imap4.

Something to be aware of. Not an issue with gmail or iCloud....


I don't think this is quite true.  I believe that MS have recently added IMAP support but they have not (as far as I can make out) removed support for POP. I use the latter on all my devices and it works fine (except for win 8.1 preview, but that's because they have an out of sync certificate).

The only people who I am aware that don't fully support POP (of all the mail services I use) is GMail and they don't correctly implement the POP DEL command for deleting emails (or requesting them not be deleted).

Others have reported quick battery drain, but I have found the opposite on the ipad 2. IOS 6 killed the battery in mine, but ios7 , to seems to last a lot longer. Maybe my ios6 version was faulty in some way.

Like the new features but don't like the look, old look had a more quality feel to it.

I agree. Altering background helped to read labels, and the bold helps too, and font size

I agree.

Call me old fashioned, but Skeumorphism just made it feel...somehow classier.

Not a fan of the flat colourful icons and app interfaces, but I'll get used to it.

Too many features are worth having for me to consider going back to iOS6.

I found in both cases it defaulted to having the bluetooth on. Not sure if it's relevant, but worth a quick check if you find the battery not lasting particularly long afterwards.

Ok so any one else think that Nintendo chose the colour theme for the new icons or is it just me?
