Re: Has Anyone Held Back From Updating To At Least iOS 7 Yet And Why?
When September 18th rolled around, I was using an iPhone 3GS and an iPad 2, both on iOS 6.1.2, both jail broken. Now, the 3GS wasn't even eligible for iOS 7, it's actually 2009 hardware, but it ran with me like a champ. Upgraded (finally!) to the 5s. Currently on iOS 7.0.3, BUT my iPad 2 is still on 6.1.2. I've heard that, due to 2011 hardware, iOS 7 is not very good on the iPad 2. It is eligible for the iOS update, but I'm not willing to give up my jailbreak.

So there is your answer. Yes, I've held back from iOS 7, due to jailbreak and (somewhat) age of hardware.
