At best this is free advertising courtesy of the NYPD. Or, more likely, the cops want an easier way to track you down.

I went ahead and updated my iPhone 5 and iPad 3 over the weekend. I was dreading the worst, but it seems to have gone off without any problems. I updated them through connection to a PC and downloading via iTunes. The battery performance on the iPhone is actually the same as before so luckily I avoided the weird battery issues many other people have reported. On the iPad the battery seems to drain a little faster than before but still acceptable in my mind.

I like the new look but a couple of things are annoying:

1. The folder view has been reduced to a 3x3 grid, resulting in a lot of wasted screen space and the need for extra swipes in folder that have more than 9 apps.
2. The default OS font is harder to read, even with the bold text enabled. For old fogies like me with not so great eyesight, it's a pain in the ass.

The parallax home screen and dynamic backgrounds are an interesting curiosity but disabled after the initial wow factor.

What the performance like on your iPad3?

I've been holding off on updating mine after reading about a pretty big performance hit.

I did upgrade my iPhone4 and although it's slower than my work-provided 5 it's still usable.

This was actually a huge plus for me, as the old folder limit was 16 apps per folder (there is no limit now). My daughter has a ton of kid book apps and I had to create "Kids Books 1" "Kids Books 2" "Kids Books 3" etc. Then if she wanted a particular one I had to go searching through each one to remember where I put it.

Performance feels pretty much the same as before the update. I have not noticed anything out of the ordinary.

I've felt like the performance on the iPad 3 is much worse than iOS6.  iOS7 definitely runs smoother on my iPhone 4S than the iPad 3 in my instance.

Agreed. My iPad isn't unusable by any means, but there are slight pauses where there weren't before. For instance when I open my smart cover, on iOS 6 it was instant, under iOS 7 it takes a second or two before the iPad is unlocked. I never saw my lock screen on iOS 6, I seen it almost every time I open my smart cover now. It also likes to turn the screen upside down when not in use, which takes it a second to recognize, something it did not do under 6.

I haven't seen a huge difference on the iPad 3 either. There may be some slight pauses here and there as pointed out but nothing that has made me think twice about it. I'm a little torn on the multi-task interface though. While it's really cool to be able to scroll through your app screens and flick up to dismiss them, it's a lot more overhead graphics-wise. I've noticed the most hesitation when have multiple apps open trying to scroll through them.

Anyone try it on an iPad 2 yet? My wife has the 2 and she's curious about the upgrade but I'm afraid it'll turn her tablet into a barely functional slideshow.

I just went through a massive reboot cycle at the gym trying to use Chrome with iTunes Radio.  Seriously, more than 10 minutes went by from the time it was functional to the time I could do anything again.

That said, it's the first major problem I've had on the device.  Otherwise it seems to be running fine.

Wow, really odd that some of you are seeing such a performance hit on the iPad 3. I just don't see it, or maybe I'm not looking hard enough. icon_razz

One thing I would recommend is after the update, power the device off and then on to reset it. Let the battery run all the way down until the device shuts down on it's own, then charge it up fully. From what I've been reading, that will help with performance and battery life.

It's a bit bizarre that the experiences of people are so all over the map.

I'm running it on my iPad Mini (same processor as iPad 2) and it runs pefectly fine.  The battery drained rather quickly but that might have been because I left bluetooth on by accident.  It seems like the update turns bluetooth on by default.

I could deal with the look if I could just turn off the ZOOM in and ZOOM out every time I launch or close an app.   tear thumbsdown

I'm happy with iOS7 overall. As far as the visuals go, it hasn't bothered me, and some of the font and color changes (Maps app in particular) I've really liked and found easier to read.

Apparently some folks are complaining about motion sickness from all the zooming and animations:
http://www.fiercemobilecontent.com/story/apple-device-users-blame-ios-7-causing-motion-sickness/2013-09-26

But you guys know me, everything makes me motion sick  puke, including FPS games and even many third person titles. Even some strategy games somehow. iOS7 hasn't given me any motion sickness issues at all.

Still the zooming, or "zooming in from a corner/out to a corner" reminds me of when I'm editing together compilations of computer game gameplay footage. Sometimes a crazy zooming transition between videogames is cool but it isn't necessarily easy on the eyes nor is it really necessary. It wouldn't surprise me if they eventually added an option to disable some/all of the zooming stuff.

My upgrade went without a hitch.  I had more reasons for updating my iPhone than my iPad, but I figure I might as well keep them consistent. 

The only iOS 7 feature I can think makes a difference to my iPad experience is having the spotlight search accessible from anywhere.

The 7.0.2 update just bricked my iPad 3.  Tried loading the new update and during the process I got a screen that indicated I needed to plug the iPad into iTunes, took a bit of looking to find out that this means the iPad is in recovery mode and needs to be plugged into a computer with iTunes installed.  Doing that now but you get a message saying all your data will be erased!  iTunes is now downloading the software for the recovery.

I recently upgraded my iPad to 7.0.2 and I just went to buy something from the AppStore and... I can't. I click on the price, it changes to 'Buy' and when I touch that there's a brief spin of a wait cursor and then it goes back to showing the price. Anyone know what might be going on?  icon_confused

Well, fixed it. Logged out of the App Store and rebooted. Not sure if that was really needed but some posts online suggested it. Went back into the App Store and when I went to buy, it now prompted me to log in and then agree to new terms and conditions. After all that, it let me buy the product.

Wednesday night 11pm Eastern time is when all of the big new apps are released. I tried to download a couple apps and it did the same thing at first, but I tried again five minutes later and it worked for me.

I've never had a problem downloading anything at 11pm Wed before, but I spent a long time trying to get Pandemic (and Tanto Cuore) last night with no success at all.

No problem this morning, though.

You know what I don't like about iOS7?

I can't send iMessages to other iOS users - they get stuck on sending and after a reboot they show as "not sent"

Texts to my android-using girlfriend go through just fine.  Texting works but iMessage doesn't.  

I guess the solution is to encourage everyone I know to switch to Android phones.  retard

Can't you turn iMessage off so that it only sends texts?  That could be your workaround until they fix the issue.

From some articles online it sounds like for some people it's happening all the time.  I've had it happen about 3-4 times since release and every time if I send another message to the same recipient or just tap "try again" it works.

I like the top-down and bottom-up sliders. though my GF's mom has had problems using them on her iPad mini. She is non-techie, but I think the problem is the protective case doesn't allow her to engage the very edge of the screen.

The most recent iOS patch removes the ridiculous ZOOMing if you turn on Reduce Motion in accessibility options.
