    Default Has Anyone Held Back From Updating To At Least iOS 7 Yet And Why?

    I am quite shocked on how many people that have eligible phone to update to the minimum of iOS 7 when it first came out and now Apple signing iOS 7.0.3. Many posts I have read indicate many different reasons why many have not bothered to update including one very well known Blog writer who has an iPhone 5 with 6.0 still on it saying " There is no need for me to update" so I started this thread to see if the is totally out of the ordinary or are there many that have not updated yet to at least iOS 7?

    Go ahead and tell us YES if it is applies and why? We promise not to tell anyone or use your name ok? LOL

    I did for the longest time. I have it on my iPhone only because i got stuck at the restore screen and couldn't fix it. I could downgrade it back to 6.1.3 but I don't use my iPhone anymore so it doesn't matter to me. I can't stand the colourful look that iOS 7 has, I find it is unbelievable ugly and too flat. The blur annoys me and Siri for some reason doesn't work as well as it use to.

    I upgraded immediately. I don't see any reason anyone would justify not upgrading. iOS 7 brings so many new features and improvements over previous versions.

    I upgraded as soon as u could, but I have some friends who didn't upgrade right away or at all. A few have iphone 4, and there is some definite lag, which I think scared them away from it. I'm on a iphone 5 and haven't had any issues what so ever

    The blur and color scheme you refer to can be gotten rid of by turning Increase Contrast to ON. As far as Siri goes I actually find it to be more accurate at least for me.

    I agree with all of the statements so far on who posted and just updated to 7.0.3 yesterday just because I needed to wait until I had time. No issues and no problems with it so far and don't expect any. I am just amazed as I have already stated on how many have not. I was very surprised at the one individual who said they would not until they have to as one of our blog writers and of course they have their reasons so that was one main reason I wrote the thread.

    Not going to update a repurposed iPhone 4 that is now essentially an iPod. It's used for kids stuff. I noticed minor lag after updating a 4S to iOS 7, so don't think the 4 is a good candidate.

    I'm still on iOS 6.0.1 with my 4S and will likely not update until a jailbreak is released for iOS 7

    I've been using the betas on my iPod since June so I've gotten use to look of iOS 7. I installed the GM the day after it was available and I haven't looked back since. I have no regrets updating to iOS 7 and I've had no problems so far.

    I have not upgraded for a simple reason; the UI. The only feature I would actually care about is control center. I will stick to iOS 6 on my 4s until I find another device to like. I wrote a thread about 7 being the future of Apple and those that do not care for itů what will they do knowing that? I am content with 6, but like most people, I like to upgrade as often as possible. With 7 coming with the new iPhones, I will not be purchasing one at all. It's a tough decision, but its my personal opinion.

    I updated the first day out without an issue. And the majority of the people I know have up updated with little to no issues. But there our a few who are holding back claiming they either don't like it, or heard of to many issues and are waiting till their sure all the bugs are gone, but knowing them that should be sometime around iOS 8.

    I updated as soon as I could on day one. While iOS 7 was a bit buggy initially, the 7.0.3 update has fixed many bugs and runs quite smoothly. I highly recommend that anyone holding out upgrade. Even if you don't quite like the aesthetics of iOS 7, the added functionality is worth it.

    Yeah, i turned Increased contrast on but that still leaves me with the ugly icons problem, don't get me wrong some of the stuff in iOS 7 I love like the calendar but I haaaaate the dock. As for Siri i went to take a screen shot of it not working more me and of course it made me look like a liar and worked perfectly every time. :/ there are time where it would take forever for a reply and it would just say I'm sorry blah blah blah can't do it.

    I believe you. It's happened to me numerous times.

    I have not updated. I have all the functionality I need on my jailbroken iPhone 5 running 6.1.2. I love not having to use the home button and sleep button on my phone especially since they are known to fail. Zephyr gives me that functionality. I already have a control center in my notification drop down center. There is nothing that iOS 7 provides that I do not have on my iPhone. I have no need for iOS 7.

    I did install iOS 7 on my iPhone 4 and it slowed it down until the 7.0.3 update came and allowed me to turn off the silly animations. I am agnostic when it comes to iOS 7; I do not like it not do I hate.

    I updated my iPad2 because I'm a developer and had to.
    But my other devices will stay on iOS6 as long as possible.
    The new design doesn't even deserve the name "design" as iOS7 looks pretty much like Windows running in Safe Mode. It's a travesty.
    As a long time Apple fan, developer, shareholder, I'm very, very sad.

    I have updated because I am a tech nerd , however my wife is a perfect case study of a non-techie user. She doesn't want to upgrade because it's different, plain and simple. She likes the way iOS6 works (and looks) on her 4S and her use case is pretty basic (email, calendar, text, internet, and facebook). She doesn't even want to upgrade her phone, even though she's eligible. Crazy to me, but saves me some money!

    Not a fan of iOS 7 on my iphone 5. Liked it at first, now would love to roll back to iOS 6. Not a fan of the new web search, the colors of the icons, email program or web browsing.

    Syncing music has also been terrible since the update, the battery drains faster and random things happen like the music coming on, screen dimming and icons shaking like I'm trying to move them.

    Been using my Lumia more as a result. Hopefully a patch will be released soon to clean this up.

    I have not updated because if I do I will lose my jailbreak. I was so tempted when iOS7 dropped and it was all the buzz in the forums. I think I will update as soon as a new jailbreak is available.
