things I don't like:
Response to pressing home button from sleep
Swipe from Right to left to delete emails (As opposed to left to right)
too many applications in the taskbar that you now pull up rather then double tap for
voice memos are harder to access
slight increased battery drain

Things I like:
pull down on any screen to reveal search function (good for those with many pages of apps)
lock screen appearance
new sounds for ringtones, messages etc
improvements in weather and camera app is quicker

Pretty bold statement.

I played with it a little on my wife's phone. It's definitely different, and I like it, but I wouldn't say it transformed the phone...
Well.. iOS has been the same since the first iPhone. Sure, along the way the hardware was updated and the software had more features but iOS 7 changed the whole thing. I feel like anything that changes something drastically is a transformation

It gives a nice 3D effect, but is useless and seems like a waste of battery life. I heard it can be turned off somewhere.

I see some of you have mentioned battery drain. I recently upgraded my iPhone 4S and two iPad 3's (one original and one with lighting connector) and all of my devices seem to be experiencing much heavier battery drain than before, as in with normal use where previously my iPad might have had 20-30% left at the end of the day, with iOS7 it seems to be under 10% consistently.

Anyone else noticing this as well, where the battery usage is that noticeable in terms of more drain?

Also just as an aside, I get the feeling for once that Apple has copied Microsoft here. Windows 8 came out with the new flat Metro style menu, and the new iOS7 seems similar. Additionally the new way of multitasking between applications - a welcome addition - reminds me somewhat of Windows Aero CTRL+TAB switching on Windows 7/8 PC, but not as cool

Just found that today. Very much like that as well.

Typing is a lot slower for me. Anyone know how I can fix this?

With ios6, I could type freely without restraint. With ios7, if I type too fast, the phone starts lagging and characters don't register. This is incredibly annoying to me.

I suspect when I'm using the internet this has something to do with the auto search feature. And, when I'm typing a text message, it has something to do with the spell check feature. It's like there's a lot of extra crap going on in the background that's mucking things up.

7.02 mentions nothing about improving performance. Is it really smoother with 7.02?

I'm not sure why they haven't fixed the pics as wallpaper issue with 7.02...I still can't crop them.

Also, never knew that I could use FaceTime on cell data until now...I guess this was changed last June and I didn't know about it

Hey guys, I just found a fix for the lag on my iphone 4S -

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Guide...4-385447.shtml

I turned off "documents and data" under "icloud" under "settings," and the keyboard lag was fixed (at least somewhat).

+1. And how about an option to have more than 9 items per folder page. That is annoying as I had everything grouped nicely into groups of 16.

There is also FaceTime Audio only, which may have been talked about, which is nice while I'm overseas and need to check in on things since it's basically just an IP phone then.

Even when you're not overseas, the voice quality on FaceTime Audio blows a regular phone call away.

They'll recommend you upgrade to a new phone.

I don't understand why people with old phones update to the newest OS...

I still remember how bad it was for people with 3G phones upgrading after 2 years..... complaints after complaints.

The older phone's hardware simply isn't able to run the newest software.

It's like trying to run a new windows or mac OS on an older PC/Mac... just won't run smoothly.

I noticed lag with my iPhone 5 using iOS7... I cannot imagine how crappy it must be with a 4S (or a 4!!)
