    Curious; those with the iPhone 5, does 7.0.1 seem to work flawlessly?

    I was wondering about buying a iPhone 5, 32GB and loading iOS 7.0.1 on it. I'm guessing the speed of the OS on the device would be the same as an iPhone 5c, no?

    Share your thoughts.

    Lol why corrupt an iPhone 5 with iOS 7?

    iOS 6 is faster than iOS 7 after all.

    My iPhone 5 worked well with iOS 7.0.1 installed and it is still working well running iOS 7.0.2. As for the speed comparison, I would say that it should be about the same...

    I guess what I'm really asking is, if me getting an iPhone 5, versus my current iPhone 5c would be better. The wait times for an iPhone 5s is ridiculous currently...

    If you currently have a 5C there's no reason to get a 5 unless you really prefer the metal/glass aesthetic to the colorful one of the 5C. 5C has better front camera, slightly higher battery and supports more LTE bands.

    I have my 4S with iOS 6 and apps open quicker than on my 5S. Not all apps though.

    iOS 7 is different, it has a flow then opens the app where iOS 6 just opens the app.

    More transitions in iOS 7 as oppose to iOS 6.

    The iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5 have the exact same specs. Only difference is the battery and colour mate. It should run the same on both devices

    Seeing as there should be no difference in performance between the 5 & 5C, and you already have one of them.
    Hold onto it, enjoy it while you wait, and get a 5S.

    That's what I'd do.

    Let me try and tempt the geek in you.
    Latest and greatest.
    Top of the line.
    Superior performance.
    Better camera.
    64 bit.
    Technologically refined.
    Are ya feeling it yet?

    One question though.

    The phone and messages app color don't bother you at all?

    Honestly, not really. Could they be a little less vibrant? Sure. But I don't mind the look of the icons. I think they should have made the FaceTime icon some other color. that's too much green.

    I'm sure any guy that updated is looking at the neon green icons and saying what the hell?

    Like I said, I don't really mind them. They fit with the icons. Are they pretty vibrant, yes. But I don't mind them.

    Once again, and I feel like I'm just repeating myself over and over again, but to each it's own.

    I've been having two problems with my iphone 5 ever since I updated to the iOS 7, and wanted to see if anyone knew a fix or was having the same problem. First...my phone has been dying at 10%, but when I plug it in to charge, the battery still says 9%??
    Next...sometimes when I send a text message it sends as an iMessage that doesnt go through but takes several hours to let me know. It also offers me the option after the "iMessage" is sent to send it as a Text Message.
    I have never seen this before so if anyone has any help, I would geatly appreciate it.

    The iMessage thing is a known issue and will likely be addressed with a software update that is rumored to be in testing and rumored to be released as soon as next week... the battery issue has also been mentioned here in the forums... rebooting the device may do it... or you may have to resort to a back-up, re-install the iOS and then restore the back-up... and it might be a bug that gets addressed in the update that's pending.

    I think there's still some work to be done on apps for iOS 7 and still some work to be done on iOS 7. Prior to iOS 7.0.2 Safari was crashing on my 4S and iPad 2 all the time. No Safari crashes since 7.0.2. I'm sure there will be a stability update in the near future for apps and iOS 7. 🎃
