Today's the day, we've all been waging for, iOS 7

Excited for it, opinions in videos off it, opinion on it when you get it, what do you like, what do you not like

You will be able to download direct from software settings but you should make sure you are on a stable wifi connection. In the past IOS updates appear around mid afternoon. It's a global rollout so they never specify a time of day.

Well we've not all been waiting for it, since some have already been running it for ages. Those who haven't, you're in for a treat though as it does give your phone a new lease of life.

Have you noticed the colours of the fixed apps in iOS7 are exactly the same as the colours of the 5C

I like the new passcode screen, much easier for me with fat fingers to unlock my phone without making a mistake lol

Yeah I did think the scheme was a tad similar

I know this may come as heresy to my fellow iPhone users, but I don't actually use a passcode ..

Probably because I use my phone primarily to listen to music so I don't tend to leave it alone for that long, only when it's indoors. Probably silly I know, but it works for me.

Me and my 4s are indeed looking forward to it.
I may wait a few days though. I reckon it will take hours to download and install when it is released.

So there is somebody else in the world who doesn't use a passcode. My phone is never out of reach from me and I go into it so often I just cannot be bothered to use a passcode.

Really looking forward to merging all my similar type folders and reduce screen clutter. At the moment I have many "Games apps" because they don't fit into a single one. I have sports games, normal games, free games, simulation games and two kids games. Be great to combine these in one folder.

I also have a football folder, a golf folder and a general sports one so I can merge these too.

Also, I'm intrigued by the Photo Roll changes and grouping. I didn't entirely follow how this worked from the presentation back in June. I know it goes by date and then groups those taken at the same time.

Control centre will be great as will Airdrop (but as I don't have a iP5 or an iPad4 I'll need to wait until I can upgrade next year).

Since this was announced in June I have been looking forward to it, and from the pictures I have seen, I really like the design of it too.

No you won't, as a friend shared their photo album with me prior to me updating to iOS7 and everything is as it was prior to updating

Someone mentioned midday release.
Nothing so far.

"Your software is up to date"

I'm going for a 6pm release.

Exciting

Remember to update your apps first & also do a backup BEFORE upgrading.
