I'm with you Matt. I updated my 4s to iOS 7 yesterday afternoon when it went live. Everything works well and I haven't had an app which did not work (so far). I love the overall feel and things aren't too different than they were in iOS 6. If you could navigate around that OS, you can navigate around this one with relative ease. My biggest complaints are the flat design and color palate. I don't like pastel colors and the flat design looks like it belongs in an episode of South Park. Another complaint is folder design. iOS 6 allowed more than 9 apps in a folder at once. iOS 7 creates a 2nd page within the folder if you have more than 9 apps in that folder, which defeats the purpose of not scrolling from page to page to see where your apps are if you forget where you put one. Most of my folders had 10-12 apps in them. Now, most of them are multi-page folders so I am figuring out a different sort scheme for apps to keep them to 9 or less per folder. Gigantic oversight, IMO.

 

What is your favorite new feature/change? Mine has to be the flashlight function in the Control Center. It's a simple inclusion but one which they should have made before now.

Since it works fine on iPhone 4s, I guess it won't slow down (or eat battery) on iPad3.  That's probably my main concern about finally upgrading from iOS5.1 at this point -- yeah, I never got around to trying iOS6 in large part because of the Maps situation.  Actually, I should probably make sure a few paid (and fairly expensive) apps still work 100% as well though I don't see why not...

Likes: Like the Live Preview of apps when you want to switch, Sam, it reminds me so much of my Windows Phone, makes me all at home ;) , I also like the block options or at least the wife does on her phone, really like the control center

 

Dislikes:  Dislike the icons.  Dislike that folders now don't bloom to full screen and you only get part of your icon and they have pages inside of a mini-page.. it just doesn't feel right. Dislike the down swipe for a spotlight, because it conflates it with the today notification center until you get used to the idea you have to downswipe away from the top 10% of the page.

Is it publicly released now?Regardless I don't think I'll upgrade on my 4. Sounds like it will be too slow.

Dave, I see the update in my iPad3, and they've announced it w/ a video presentation on the site. Unfortunately, as usual, the update requires plenty of free space on the device to install -- over 4GB (or ~3x the OS's actual size) in this case -- so can't do it just yet til I get around to freeing up some space... _Man_Sent via HTF mobile app

She may want to change her system wide font setting: 

Dynamic Font Sizes: A system-wide font size can be selected for apps that support it. To change the font, access Settings > General > Text Size.

Me on Twitter yesterday: "iOS 7’s functional redesign and enhancements are great. The new UI’s cosmetic appearance I don’t like one bit."

 

The one functional change that bothers me is bringing up control center is more difficult than the sideways slide of the dock to get to the similar iOS 6 controls was.  Maybe my iPad case makes it worse.  Otherwise, clearly iOS 7 will be a bone for App developers: the new NY Times iPad app (iOS 7 only) is a colossal improvement.


Hold on tightly, let go lightly.

I forgot this is for the iPad too. Has apple even publicly shown ios7 for iPad? It seems swept under the rug. Need to see reviews on whether to,upgrade our ipad2 and ipad3,

I've been running iOS 7 on the iPad since Beta 2 or 3 (forget which, it was not released for Beta 1).

 

No issues, in fact, it seems to run a little better on the iPad 4 than it does the iPhone 4S.  It should also run on iPad 2 and 3.

I'd think it better run well on iPad4 given its hardware and age... _Man_

I had to check, and be reminded that the iPad 2 is essentially an iPhone 4S. It should run ios7 adequately. Ars has something on it. http://arstechnica.c...-on-the-ipad-2/I'm not in a hurry to update, yet. We're a month out on new phones, at least due to availability. I'm not sure i want a mish-mash of updated devices at home.
