So who has upgraded? What do we think? I will say I was surprised how quickly it downloaded this time when iOS 6 was released it took hours to download and install this time I was done in about 30 min. Not sure what if I'm impressed it's quite a cosmetic update but not sure if I'm finding it any better than the previous updates. So far the only thing I'm impressed with is the Control Center and auto app upgrading.

I really like the ability to swipe up on the screen and pull up your music player. I know it's small, but it's pretty nifty. I also like that if you double tap the home button it brings up all of your open apps, so you can navigate through them easier. Finally, I do like look of the new design. I don't know if I'd call any of these things "major" upgrades, but they're nice to have. Supposedly Air Drop is supposed to be pretty cool, but I haven't used it yet. 

 

One minor thing I really don't like: Before, if you unplugged your headphones it would pause your music player. Now it just keeps playing, but silences it. Not that big of a deal, just kind of annoying

This was there before. I use it all the time.

What is iOS 7?

Is it the HTC I posted a picture of in a different thread? That would go perfectly with a Zune.

What really cheeses me about the update to iOS7 is that all the rest of my apps updated.  Most of them don't bother me, but that stupid-ass Twitter update with the blue line "conversation" feature makes me seethe with fury.

That's the one. I kid about my zune but really it's a hell of a good deal. Better than the i pod and i store. I pay $10 a month for unlimited downloads. Now my girlfriend uses it all the time over her i pod and i store.

That may be a good reason for me not to update to iOS7. I still haven't updated my app for Twitter.

The next model up (8525) was my first 3G phone. The 8125 (picture in the other thread) was my first smartphone. That was the phone that allowed me to throw away my Palm Pilot.

But it's really pretty.

 

It's possible that I f'ed something up ... it was late last night and I was exhausted when I DL'ed the update.  I might have agreed to something that I ended up regretting in the morning.  (Not for the first time.)
