    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
    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, I have an iPhone with iOS 7, and an iPad with iOS 6, jailbroken, both used daily. It can be disorienting sometimes, but nothing too bad.
    So there is your answer. Yes, I've held back from iOS 7, due to jailbreak and (somewhat) age of hardware.

    Well, I have not upgraded to iOS7 yet; and the reason is probably because back when I was a systems specialist, my employer at the time drilled into my head that they do not upgrade any devices without first going through in-house testing to verify compatibility and that there are no glaring problems. And given the issues that have been happening with the 7.x release, I'm happy to say that staying on 6.x hasn't affected me negatively in the slightest. When 7.1 releases, I'll most likely upgrade. Until then, iOS7 has no features that make the upgrade imperative.
