    Ok, so we know some people didn't like iOS 7 for various reasons. iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 will be released this fall and I was thinking about people who chose not to update to iOS 7 and to stay on iOS 6. If you're one of those people what will you do now?

    Well. I'm not one of them, but I plan to upgrade to every version of iOS for as long as I am an iPhone user.......I like iOS 7, but having installed iOS Beta 1 and 2, I like iOS 8 even better and I can't wait for the finished version to be released.

    This is a good question, as I was never really a big fan of iOS 7 when it came out, largely because I thought many of its graphical improvements were unnecessary beyond just for aesthetic value and I thought much of the processing power was wasted that way.

    But I begun to just appreciate iOS 7 for what it is, and shortly came to accept it.

    I'm sure the improvements of iOS 8, namely the actionable notifications are only going to sway my opinions of iOS 7 to more favorable levels.

    I'm okay with iOS 7, wish Notes had the notepad look with the lines and iBooks had the bookshelf look. But I feel iOS 8 is a smoothing out and improving upon iOS 7 like it was the Beta and iOS 8 is the general release.

    At first i didn't like the redesign but over time I actually liked iOS 7 once I used the betas. So yes I'll be updating to iOS 8.

    I think most that didn't like iOS 7, didn't like it because of its looks. So they prolly won't like iOS 8's look either. But, they will have more of an incentive to update because of the added features/functionality.

    Ya iOS 8 it is.. But I still can't grasp on why Apple has not addressed certain iOS issues from a while back

    I like iOS 7. I think iOS 8 is just an incremental update but it really does add some functionality. I'm going to like third party keyboards!

    I know a lot of people were unhappy with the redesign of iOS7, but I'm sure if they look at iOS 6 now it will look super old and outdated to them. It sure does so for me!

    That's so true! It's so funny, I don't even remember iOS6! Isn't that amazing? I just loved iOS7 from the first screenshots I saw.

    I still hate the way iOS7 looks, but 8 really can't be any worse, so may as well update.

    Amen! My iPhone 5 came with iOS 6(certified pre owned, so it must have been sitting for over a year) and boy it literally killed me!

    I really liked iOS 7 from the very start, so I'm totally looking forward to iOS 8. The thing that I'm really excited for in iOS 8 is the new keyboards that will allow Swype....I hate to say it but on the few occasions I've used my sons S4 to text and then going back to my phone to text I would be trying to Swype LOL, and then realize...wait !! I don't have that so it seems I will adapt to swyping rather quickly when it becomes avail to us

    I will wait and see how people like it first. Then if everything seems alright, I'll update to IOS8. But last time, I updated to IOS7 the day it was released and that was a huge mistake, never again.

    Now that the jailbreak is out for 7.1.1/7.1.2 I am have NO desire to upgrade to 8 unless the following 2 things happen:

    1) IOS8 includes full screen caller ID (rumored to be part of 8's beta, but no guarantees until it happens)
    2) Jailbreak for 8.

    I will never again *EVER* run an apple product that I cannot jailbreak. I literally grew to hate my phone over the last several months of ios 7.1.

    For anyone who detests the fugly design that Ive and Cook forced on us, check out the jailbeak and the tweaks Winterboard. ayeconios7, ClassicDock, ClassicLockScreen, HiddenSettings7(dock bounce)). I still need to find a good way to remove that horrible transparent blur from the control center, and a good 4x4 folder, but I no longer cringe when I look at my phone.

    Thank you Pangu . It will be another mistake to upgrade without reading if a jailbreak is available. The last time I mistakenly upgraded to iOS 7.1 would not happen again

    I never liked the "look" of iOS 7. Give me back the textures and shadows of iOS 6. The new features in 7 have been great and the new ones in iOS 8 will be even better. The features make it worthwhile. But I sure miss this look:
    If you didn't like iOS 7 will you try iOS 8?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1404824593.367553.jpg
