iOS 7 update is NOW
Well I've updated my phone and mini. Seems to be quite few quirks but no massive fails, generally most pleased with the double tap to app switching and how that works.

I suggest you update all your apps first, as it seems to break app updates. I had like 20 apps that needed updating on my mini and it went to ZERO after I relaunched. Most I will update only as needed, but I had to manually navigate to apps that now have to be updated to work.

Scrolling in a lot off apps seems juiced, then it gets confused. Like in the playlists I flick it and it zooms up then wiggles at the top or bottom. Sadly the whole cloud thing STILL doesn't recognize my playlist sort renaming, ie _name or **name and still sorts those by alpha and ignores my lovely sorting based naming system. I really need to bitch to Apple about that cuz that's lamey lame lame. The music app overall is WAY DIFFERENT and so far so good.

I miss the launcher shelf on my iPad, but not my phone. That flat bar on the iPad looks a little weird. It should be dynamically sized.

Also my phone got hot as all hell but I am hoping that's due to the unpacking and install.

It seems at times my icons wiggle due to the parallax thing. That sorta wigs me out. Overall it's neat but I don't like it when they bounce.

I was pleasantly surprised at how many settings and customizations were maintained but I guess the cloud gets the credit there. It was neat how it felt both new and yet already mine.

Downloaded, prepared, but can't verify because software update is unavailable? What?

Oh cool, just noticed the background shifts around depending on the angle you hold the iPad.

Yeah my mini did that when it was locked as well. I think some final hash check gets killed when its locked. For me the download and unpacking was a solid hour, after three failed downloads. Not too crazy, but they must have compressed the shit out of that tarball or whatever they use.

Even with those failed attempts I was still only about 35 minutes from start to finish.

RE: iOS 7 update is NOW
Holdin' out for a jailbreak. I'm currently stuck with passé versions of apps that are decidedly unflat. Hurry up so I can keep my phone the way I like it- baffling to others.

RE: iOS 7 update is NOW
For some reason the update didn't show up for me until just now, and then it's just kind of sitting there and not giving me an estimated time remaining. Fuck you Tim Cook.

Oh, and the new iTunes won't show up for my mac either.

RE: iOS 7 update is NOW
57 minutes remaining for iOS 7 and iTunes 11.1.0 just showed up too. There better not be a Lemon Party later tonight.

edit: The request timed out.(102)

looooolz

edit #2: Their servers must be very overwhelmed right now. It's stalled at 57 minutes still and iTunes keeps timing out. LAME!

I don't think I've ever seen an OS update this lame. No wonder Apple is tanking.

THE GUARDIAN AGREES!
