    Default Anyone already decided not upgrading to ios 7?

    I know it's really early in beta still but we have a pretty good idea of what ios 7 will look and feel like. I'm 80% sure I'm not going to upgrade my ipad mini to ios 7 when it's released to the public. Anyone like me pretty sure they aren't going to upgrade at all or maybe just not right away?

    You know I like the features as well, I'm just not feeling the new look. I just really like pre- ios 7 because of how closely it reminds me of Mac OS. And if Mac OS eventually starts looking like ios 7, I don't know what I will do. P.s I really dislike the new safari...

    Once it's out of beta I'll be more convinced, as it's a beta still the sluggishness of it drives me mad.

    I agree. I had Beta 3 on my iPad 3, and I eventually downgraded back to 6.1.3. I really liked it, but I know its a beta and I have no use for having it, other than just checking it out. iOS 6 is like butter compared to the beta. I hope that gets fixed in the public release.

    I will likely have no choice since I plan on getting the 5S (or alternative name) and IOS 7 will be pre-installed. That said, I have a love hate relationship with IOS 7. At least to this point in the beta, I feel that the animations add a degree of lag that was never present before in IOS. I am hoping that gets eliminated, but what if it is not? I also prefer some of the look of IOS 6 and prior. The new icons do not bother me a bit. But the look of everything within the settings icon, the keyboard, bubble colors and background of sms, lines in the notepad app, etc I do honestly prefer in IOS 6. I also do not like the new 3-page notification center at all. Especially with them eliminating the 7 day forecast weather widget. Guess I will get used to it all though. Not really any other choice if I get the next phone released.

    I am 100% positive that I will upgrade when it is released as a finished product. Heck, I'm doing all I can to keep from updating now...

    I don't see why or how anyone could justify not upgrading.

    iOS 6 is stuck in the late 90's. When I worked with graphical design back in the days, I created the kind of shiny stuff with gradients and stuff. That was like 15 years ago. A re-design is long overdue. In my opinion it looked old even when iOS was new. I do not agree with Steve Jobs design decisions but I agree with Ive's for the most part.

    iOS 7 was the sole reason I recently bought a iPhone. I could never stand the design of prior versions.

    I look forward to the new iOS 7. It's refreshing, it's a change of pace when it comes to Apple. Is it innovative? Not really, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. Running the beta now, it is a bit sluggish here and there, but nothing that doesn't happen in most betas.

    Do they, or will they have a switch in Settings to turn off animations ?

    My girlfriend says she won't. I told her too bad because she has to sleep sometime and I can update it when she's passed out.

    Why would you not? Most of your apps will update to take advantage of features only offered in iOS 7, and one day you'll find an app that you can't live without no longer works at all with iOS 6.

    As with anything involving change there will ofcourse be push back somewhere. Why you wouldn't upgrade though is beyond me. I can see someone not upgrading until the later versions when they've ironed out all the bugs. However it's not like Apple is going to say oops and go back to iOS 6. So if someone isn't planning on upgrading are they planning on staying with iOS 6 for the life of their device? I run the betas and I love it so for me there is no question. The question in my mind is when will it be Jailbroken?

    I think the look may be subject to change (I hope), and maybe you'll get used to it.

    To this point I do not believe it is possible. I just cannot see Apple making this an option since they are so proud of these changes.

    I dont like the keyboard in iOS7. I just dont like how it looks. But since my iphone is no longer my daily driver, and my ipad is far from my main messaging device, I will upgrade to ensure my apps run smoothly and take advantage of its other features!

    I usually upgraded automatically in past because I got new iphones each year. This year could be different as I'm happy with the iphone 5.

    If I don't get the 5S, it gets a bit harder. I'm currently jailbroken on iOS 6 and don't really see much in iOS 7 to warrant losing my jb right away. I'd say i'm more reluctant at this point vs decided. If certain apps need iOS 7, my decision will be made for me.

    I have had iOS 7 beta on my phone and loved it but switched back to iOS 6 cause of the lags and glitches.. But when iOS 7 is officially released then I will upgrade my phone again
