    Default ios 7 beta is great but not ready

    well ever since ios 7 beta tested was out i went ahead and upgraded my iphone 5 and test out ios 7 and see what its all about... i have used it for a few weeks or so and i love all the changes they have made to the new ios and the look of it is simple but does have alot to offer.. i know its not the official os and yeah there was glitches and bugs here and there like some apps dont work, my phone keeps resetting automatically and stuff like that.. i thought i was able to get pass it but i couldnt some stuff wasnt working properly so for me i decided to go back to ios 6 until ios 7 is officially released.. it was fun to play around with but until its released i am just gonna be back to ios 6.. what do everyone think of ios 7 as a beta tester and are you currently still using it on your phone or are you back to ios 6?

    Using it as a daily driver on phone, tablet.

    It's great, but it's very beta at times. Nature of the beast.

    Wise to downgrade to iOS 6 and wait for the gold master/official release version if it's too buggy for what you need it for, daily...

    < rant> What is it about beta do people fail to comprehend? Of course it's "not ready" - it's {expletives deleted} beta... < /rant>...

    I run it on my daily and though I think I have submitted maybe 20 or more bugs it hasn't affected my daily use of my devices at all. Granted perhaps I don't use my devices as heavy as some others might and my devices are also personal devices at that too. I will be using all the betas on my daily I did the same with iOS 6. I love discovering and submitting bugs and since it's probably the longest time tha I ever run the stock iOS it's probably the most fun I have with it too.

    It was fun to play around with and see what it's all about and I downgraded now and. Can't wait for the official release to see what changes they made and how it is going to turn out

    Those of us who are supposed to be doing this have no option but to keep iOS 7 installed and continue updating to make sure our apps work with it and that things don't pop up...as they did on one of our apps with beta 2. We don't have the choice of going back to iOS 6 because the fun is gone. This is not something you should be doing for fun - it's work. It's a job.

    Default re: ios 7 beta is great but not ready

    I use it on my work phone to test it and its definitely not ready, but still enjoy it. In fact, everything about it makes me want to put it on my main iPhone.

    I also put it on the mini and its horrible. Even with all that, I expect it and haven't looked back.

    It's a beta, of course there will be bugs or issues. I'm sure it will be fine when released.

    For me I only have one phone and I did like it but to have it on my main phone I can't plus drains to much battery and I know its just a beta tested and I did get to test it and like it.. Now I'm just gonna wait for it to be officially release but in the men time sticking to my ios6 on my iPhone 5

    Why do these threads keep popping up? I have seen countless numbers since beta 1. You guys are all saying the same thing. "I know it's a beta so I know it's going to be glitchy, but there are still glitches. How can I stop this?" Are you serious? Knock it off with these threads.

    I think you can blame it on the Facebook/Twitter era. People post things just to be heard.....no matter how blatantly annoying it is.

    I'm sorry but this post sounded like the kid was bored and decided to take his boredom on the net because he had nothing else to talk about. Lol "what do you think about ios 7?" Lol good post made me laugh though.

    Your thread title dictates you're not intelligent enough to make worthwhile use of a beta. Please don't install any other beta software in the future.

    I personally think the beat version of the ios7 is great. O.K, it has a few bugs and floors, but who doesn't - this includes myself!! I think the next update is on or around the 8th July. Come on, lets remain positive!

    I don't understand why some of you have a problem with this thread.

    It's beta software. He understood that.
    He tried it, he liked it, but its not yet sufficient to be used as his daily driver.

    At the end, he asks what others think of iOS 7.
    He's initiating a discussion on a discussion forum.

    It's not as if he's one of those clueless people who post:
    "Duuuuuuhhhh, iOS 7 don't work. Apple is stoopid".
    Wut?

    Buggy or not. I feel compelled to download and try it for myself.

    Instagram video works for me, Vine is still a bit buggy. Sometimes the video with freeze and audio will play, other times I get video and audio and occasionally I get nothing
