    I might be imagining this but I seem to have much better signal. I'm picking up LTE where I wasn't prior to os7.

    A software update doesn't change the physics of RF propagation...

    It's possible the software update could have changed thresholds at which the phone will connect to LTE vs 3G - and be noticeable as more LTE coverage.

    That's what I figured. I'm used to messing with modems too from Android so I thought that MAYBE it had an updated modem firmware that worked better with Bell.

    I'm all too familiar with this topic - that has definitely been done in the past with software updates. (changing the signal threshold where the phone will choose LTE vs 3G)

    I have been using iOS7 since launch day of Beta 1 ... I have been very pleased and could never go back to 6. On my iPhone 5 the OS feels much snappier than 6 and the battery life has been amazing. I am now eagerly awaiting apps to launch with features from the new API.

    I get better signal as well, was funny during the early betas when I got 5 dots darn near everywhere I was, never dropped a call ... Now with the GM release it is much more accurate and solid I must say. I get 4 dots in the house where I would get 2 bars before the update.

    I agree with a lot of your points. For example, I think Apple is trying too much to be like Android or Windows Phone and losing their focus. I really believe that the earlier iOS versions were "premium" compared to the competition. However, now I see iOS 7 wanting to be more like the competition - unfortunately. If you like it or not, they are all valid opinions as you cannot please everyone with everything a company does. It just seems in this case that I hear more negative comments than I have with any previous update. I'm sure a lot of these negative comments are also from people that hate change of any kind.

    Hello there everyone !

    I upgraded to iOS 7 GM although I am not a developer. I am really disappointed with iOS 7 .
    Let me start with it's design , I seriously think iOS 7 font looks extremely cheap and it feels like not well done. The colors are way too much bright and colorful :/
    the one thing I hated about Samsung phones ( Android OS ) is the extremely over colored look and everything feels fake. iOS 7 is exactly like that

    Other than looks and design. I think iOS 7 is actually SLOWER than iOS 6 .. first of all the Multi-Tasking is extremely annoying
    the way it goes back and then the apps feels like floating in the middle of nowhere is really ugly , it feels very un-stable , and it actually takes more time to go to the app that you want to close and then slide back to the menu.

    And he worst thing that really really annoyed me is the Music app !! its extremely crowded and you feel like the text will just lay on top of each other !
    and there is this bug that I do not understand , when I am playing music and my iPhone is locked .. and then when you pause the song or just stop it .. usually what happens is that the background shows again ( instead of the album art ) .. now with iOS 7 , it just stands there although music is not playing anymore !!!! and then I have to go the music app and close it and then go back to the lockscreen to get my background showing agian :/ Anyone facing this too ?

    In the attachment below , you can see how close the text to each other , and how easy it is to tap on something else .. this is extremely annoying and it feels like the screen does not fit the software .. if iPhone 5s had a bigger screen , I would understand .. but its the same screen size .. :/
    I am just completely disappointed with how the text feels unorganized

    Eventually , when I first used the iOS 7 , I thought it was ****ty and very complicated " it was the exact opposite of simple " ... but I thought maybe this was just because its the beta version ... now , seeing the GM version still like that with many clutter and bugs...

    I am not saying iOS 7 is a complete failure , I am just saying its far from becoming ready to go public :/

    what do you think ?


    PS : I am using now iOS 7 , and surely downgrading back to iOS 6
    Works good for me. Too bad it's not for you.

    Some of the changes are easier to adjust to. Some are simply awful. The colors on the reminders app and the pink theme in the music app are huge problems for me. Huge! :/

    @kch50248 Unfortunately starting your post with Meh...says it all. I have a teenager thats grown out of saying that.

    Are you REALLY a moderator? They must let just about anyone do that these days. Perhaps you should leave the comments to grown ups who can discuss without attacks on others who dont agree with them.

    Thank you at least your response is elequent. I do understand that lots do like it...but wish Apple would understand lots of us don't. Perhaps they should have made iOS7 with a choice of skins.

    Wow. That's not condescending at all.

    I agree with him. The whiners are the ones heard most.

    After 5 days I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I'm actually stunned at how smooth it's running on the 4S. I play a lot of music on the phone and having quicker access to the music controls is making me happy.

    I did not dislike the skeuomorphic thing at all and I was confused that there was, what felt like, sudden negative feelings about it. A few things I've read have cleared that up for me.

    I've got complaints, but I'll be damned if it doesn't at least halfway feel like a new phone, which is a treat.

    I'd say the phone has enjoyed greater benefits than the iPad in terms of becoming a more powerful tool.

    It's not perfect, but "Apple's biggest mistake"? I strongly doubt it.

    But you're not "just getting things done"... you're feeling the need to belittle people who dont agree with you... you just proved MY point. Let grown ups who can discuss differences without insults carry on while you "get things done" all on your own

    Was not "fact checking" but actually was chatting with friends who also dont like it and they showed me a list of such pages. It simply illustrated that lots of people are not liking iOS7.

    As I said earlier I understand lots do but enough dont that maybe a choice of skins would have been a better idea for Apple
