So Control Centre is a winner for me Smile

I like it as well. I also like the new Spotlight and Notification Center. I also like multitasking/app switching better, even though it's a total rip off of WebOS and Windows Phone 8.

The icons are horrible and some of the apps look like they were created by a 10 year old. I'm really not a fan of the overall look. It feels like a step backwards in many ways.

BTW... swiping left to right in iMessage gives you timestamps for each message. It would be nice it you could swipe to delete. I also can't find an edit menu to delete individual messages or to clear your history. I also miss the menu/icons at the top where you could call or FaceTime someone.

Control Centre looks to have exposed a security flaw with the iPhone

Anyone else here having problems swiping back and forward pages in Safari? That feature seems to keep locking up on me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

"The screen zooms in and out as folders and apps are open and closed"
I hate this feature the most.


The other thing I dislike is in Safari. The black URL bar on black is ridiculous. You can barely see where to click to do a Google search or type in a URL.

The icons are ugly.

Notes looks horrible.

Plenty more not to like.



What I do like is the added features in Accessibility.
So far I think this is about all I like better. Perhaps as I spend more time with iOS 7 I will learn to enjoy it. We'll see.

I think Apple is going to have so many people complain, that we will get a lot more options to make changes to things with future OS updates.

I'm not a fan of that transition effect either. It's not the worst one though. The worst is when you get that blur transition coming out of Siri. Sometimes there is an actual delay before you can use your phone again. At least that's what I have noticed.

I stumbled on to that myself. I'm glad that feature is still there. Even though I'm still hating on iOS 7. I don't know why, but I just hate this update. I think it's bad on the iPhone and even worse on the iPad and iPad mini.

From the developers and those who have used it for a while, the consensus seems to be... after you get used to the changes, you will never want to go back to iOS 6.

This is version 7.0, we need to give it more of a chance.

Lion sucked big time at first. How could Apple have got rid of "Save As". But, then they brought it back.

Apple's listening to our feedback. I'm sure with each revision, we will gain options and stability. I'm sure Apple was listening during iOS 7's beta release, but you can implement a bunch of changes during beta, or you will never be able to release your product.

I don't mind ios 7 on my ipad, but on the iPhone 4S, it is really a pig. The interface isn't so much an issue and actually like some of it better but I am beginning to strongly consider going back to 6 on the phone.

Phone behaves erratically as far as lockups. Taking pictures is slow, battery life is awful. Took a picture today with battery power at 32% and the phone shut down due to low battery. Even with most settings turned off as suggested on many forums my battery life can decline 2-3 faster than it used to. Can't make it from morning to night without absolutely needing to charge it; with 6 last week it was good for minimum 12 hours of mixed activity.

Don't doubt it will be fixed but this is perhaps the most challenging update for me. SL-L-ML was all relatively painless for me, this one bothers me. Oh well.

I've not really noticed any problems with iOS7 so far other than battery. I often only charged if I was around 60% or lower when going to bed. So normally I would have got 2 days between charges and could often have squeezed out a third if really pushed.

Since iOS7 I've been around 30% every night and yesterday I was at 1% before I'd even left work (late afternoon) which was strange as I hadn't done anything different than any other day, so a full charge had only lasted 12 hours of mainly standby Sad

Phil, you might want to look at the settings for what is being checked or updated in the background (settings->general->app refresh). I turned a lot of these off and have found the battery time on my iPhone 4 to be pretty much the same as it was with IOS 6.

nothing has changed other than the update to iOS7, so unless it automatically changed my settings during the update, I'm comparing like with like, iOS6 vs iOS7

Starting to get a little annoyed with the new sounds as. Most of them seem to have a lot of echo.
