iOS 7 Download Problems Run Rampant

    Comments are off for this post.

Apple released the iOS 7 update on Wednesday, and some users have had a lot of issues when trying to update their devices. Not only are many users having trouble downloading the iOS 7 update, they are having difficulty activating the download as well. While any Apple update is going to have glitches, some users are reportedly spending hours and hours trying to update their devices.

If Apple is trying to get their iPhone users to smash their old devices in a fit of anger so they’ll buy the iPhone 5S that is released today, then well played, Apple, well played. If their goal isn’t the destruction of older devices, however, then the company is off to a rough start with the operating system that is supposed to compete with the Android.

While slow download times is one huge problem being mentioned with the iOS 7 update, many users are reporting getting download errors.


So far there is no word from Apple on all of the iOS 7 download problems, but an update that is (at least mostly) bug-free should be released eventually. Hopefully an update won’t take months, as was the case with the iOS 6 bugs. Just a side note–the writer of this article has an iPhone 5 and updated her phone to the iOS 7 yesterday with no problems. The download and update took all of 15 minutes. From the looks of some humorous Twitter posts, however, such an easy download and installation wasn’t the norm.

Do you plan to update to iOS 7? Discuss your experience below.

After users eventually update their devices to iOS 7, the new operating system does have some pretty cool updates. In addition to flatter, more simplistic icons, the camera settings are improved, a Control Center was added and multitasking is made easier.

    Tech Talk SNL: Ohh update take to long for new Iphone oh very sad very sad. We here in China say it also take to long to get pay check after working 80 hours a week and only getting paid 80 dollars. We so sorry your upload is taking to long, what and hour for upload ? Ohh to long I just hope I can feed my family of 6 with 80 dollars.

    • Liz

      @Rick rodriguez – Very unusual Chinese name that you have. Me think you troll.

      • Al

        Family of 6? You can’t have more than one child in china, corredt? Alo, they pay cash, not paycheck.

  • Sue

    I downloaded iOS 7 to my iphone with no problems yesterday, but it took about 15 minutes. Downloaded to my ipad 4 last night, but was unable to install. Kept getting this error “unable to update because you are no longer on the internet”. I know I’ve tried at least 20 times with no luck. Frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • mohammad

      hi you must go to setting > general > selluler > on selluler
      i love u

  • Jude

    I downloaded IOS on four of my devices last night with no problems. Don’t know what the fuss is about!

    • Erika Watts

      Just updated my iPad as well, no trouble there either!

  • Dale Bartholomew

    I’ve downloaded and installed iOS 7. I had some problems to begin with upgrading iTunes to the latest version, but after that, all went smoothly and I like the new OS.

  • Dee

    I downloaded this and lost all of my apps….. I was on the phone with ATT for 45 minutes trying to fix it. :(

  • yolanda taylor

    It took 15 maybe 20 minutes and I love it!

  • Karen

    We only had a problem with my daughters phone. She lost her contacts and apps.

  • cliff

    who wants an iphone any way?

    Get a Droid. It is way better in every way than an iphone. The iphone is just for people who dont know anything about technology, them and toddlers.

  • Mikee

    i finished updating my iphone 4 after more than 5 hours. not sure if it was the speed of the internet or whatever. -.-

  • Tim Schneider

    I downloaded iOS7 for my iPhone 5, but I did it at home with a good WiFi connection. It only took 10 minutes to download, and then it had to reboot the phone twice. Total time from start to finish was less than 20 minutes. And it worked PERFECT. I made sure I backed up my phone on iTunes and to iCloud before I did it, just in case anything went wrong. It’s running perfectly and I love the new software. A bit similar to my old HTC ONE world phone, but much much faster and no email glitches! I love the iPhone 5, and I definitely love the new iOS7. Worked fine for me!

  • Erin

    I don’t know why everyone is having problems mine took about 10 min of me not being able to use it.

    • http://www.hamiltoons.com Scott

      They why comment if you’re not having problems? LOL

  • Jim Petro

    I bought my wife her 1st computer.. the latest I Pad. She is thrilled! However, she received the notice for updated to v7.0 and we agreed. The download and installation was quick.
    Then she could’t find her favorite sites……then the screen only opened in portriat…. then it flipped to landscape up-side down. The keyboard is now a light gray color, difficult to see and use.
    She is enrolled in a class for I Pad beginners next week and we wonder if it will be cancelled because the instructor is also trying to get v7.0 to work.
    And there are no instructions on turning back to the previous version.

  • Jim Irgens

    I downloaded IOS 7 to my I Phone 4S and iPad no problem. The I pad downloaded faster then I Phone but still did not take that long. No problems so far.

  • Devoni

    Mine updated fine on Wednesday but now I cannot connect to imessage using my phone number. Just my email address. I have other coworkers having the same issue. :(

    • SueLaboo

      I’m having the same issue. I receive imessages on my ipad mini, but they’re not coming through on my iphone. The ipad is wi-fi only, so that’s not very helpful.

  • William Sheppard

    I updated an iPhone 5, an iPhone 4s and an iPad mini with absolutely no problems with the update or the activation. Very simple. I am 77 and not particularly computer literate.

  • Mitch

    The download took over an hour and it seemed to go fine. My issue is that it now says I have hundreds of unread emails and I can’t clear them no matter how I try. Whether one at a time or in bunches !

    • mike

      I have just the opposite problem. The download took an hour for my iPAD and now my emails come in and as soon as you touch one they all disappear. I have to be quick to tag them all and MOVE them to another file. As soon as you read one they are all gone. Plus, you have to go into settings and turn off a lot of functions that are running in the background draining your battery down fast. I don’t like the looks of the icons. I wish I could get the old iSO6 put back on. I’ve warned my wife not to download iSO7 till they get the bugs out. I regret it. It worked just fine with iSO6! I don’t need the new functionality.

  • Indya

    Apparently, when my service gets down to 1 bar, there’s a pop up saying SIM Card Invalid. Because of that, I can’t message anyone on imessage, even on WiFi. It’s supposedly happening with other people who use Sprint, so I’m hoping there’s some issues resolved with that soon.

    Other than that, the download took me about 30 minutes to install, and has been ok. It’s a bit too bright for my taste and I’m not really feeling the homescreen’s bottom bar aesthetic, but I do enjoy it’s new features.

    • Al

      I’m having the same issue: Invalid SIM. Apple helped me to fix it, but it keeps happens again and again. After I turn the phone off and back on, it stays good for about an hour and happens again.
      I’m taking my iPhone 5 to a Sprint store after work today to see if they can fix it.

  • Donna

    Downloaded upgrade to both my IPhone and my IPad – no issues!!

    • Edwin

      iOS 7 messed up my camera (4). The front camera works sometimes but the main camera doesn’t work at all. Help????

      • angela c

        Mine did the exact same thing I can do faceview from the front but the regular camera and flashlight doesn’t work from the back of the phone. I was scared u was the only one that happened to. Gonna go to the apple store ties and see what they say. I’ve only had my phone for 3 weeks. I wish I would’ve never updated my phone now :(

        • fred branham

          Same here, camera dead as hell, sometimes the front phone works, none of the buttons for camera work. what a bunch of …apple

  • Don

    Downloaded iOS7 to three iPhones simultaneously Wed evening . .
    WHAT issues??? one took about 30 minutes to DL, the other 2, less than 15 minutes each . . . . . no problems!!!! :)

  • Mel3024

    The update on my iPad took about 30 mins on the day the update was released. I have had no problems with it.

  • BD

    Hmm. Yeah. My plan all worked out just fine– I’m sorry the rest of you are having troubles with uploading the downgrade.

  • Chrsitna

    I had no issues at all, both of my devices downloaded everything is running fine, perhaps this is a problem with user error.

  • hialtitude

    No problems whatsoever and I downloaded to both 4s and iPad. Love update and all is working great.

  • Michael

    I updated my iPad Mini to iOS 7 yesterday morning, around 11am Pacific time. The process took about 2 hours to complete, between the download itself and the reboot / update time. So far the new operating system has worked just fine, no problems to report.

  • Beth

    No problem downloading but a fully charged phone at 12 MN will be dead at 7 Am after sleeping all night. Really draining battery. I have a 4S that was draining 40% at night before install.

    • Rick

      Beth, Try turning off your apps. They will run in background even when you’re not using them. This is easier in 7, all you have to do is flick them up off the screen.

      • Mary C

        It took overnight to update and then the battery would not charge an I couldn’t receive any messages or e-mail. I did a hard restart (held the power and menu button until and Apple appeared). Solved the connection problem, but can’t hold a charge for long.

  • pete

    You are a D Bag for this BS article. IOS-7 is running fine on all my APPLE devices. Take your Samsung and shove it. This is garbage spewing at is best. Congrats.

    • jaime

      guess you didn’t see the part where the writer endorsed the ios7? reading is fundamental.

  • Stephen

    No problem downloading but I DON’T LIKE THIS UPDATE :(

  • ACar

    It took me about 35 minutes and I had nary an issue. Typical over-blowing of a few problems by Apple haters.

    • Sheila

      No, not at all. I have loved my iPhone until this undate. It has caused hours of stress and frustration. What an inferior operating system!!!!!!!

  • http://webpronews.com M K Richert

    iOS 7 appears to have caused the keyboard function on my iPad to cease working properly. I am now faced with a nasty type-wait-type-wait situation. Not pleased at all.

    • p

      Reset ur ipad. It will fix the problem.

      • Shelley

        I have the same problem with a delay when typing. I did reboot my i-pad but it is still doing the same thing. Any other advise?

        • Dani

          Go into Icloud settings and make sure that Documents and Data are off. This is what fixed all my keyboard issues on my Ipad after the update. My keyboard was lagging really bad and when I tried to do a capital letter, it wouldnt work, but now everything is fine with the keyboard. Now I need a fix for how massive my pictures are when I try to use them as wallpaper. It says I can move and scale but it just goes right back to a huge massive picture. Any help?

  • Scott Weaver

    I started the updating process by downloading the new version of iTunes. That was so on my Macbook Pro I tried to cancel after fifteen minutes but system said I can’t cancel once process has begun, so…

    Over an hour later it finally had installed but I decided it would be much smarter to wait a day or two until demands on Apple’s servers reduces. I’ll try again this weekend.

  • Cesar

    I was uploading the software update when my phone locked up. Showing the itunes and the usb cable on the screen. I couldn’t do anyhing at all. I had to connect my iphone 4s to computer and itunes to restore my phone. I lost thousands of pictures and some contacts. My phone after the restore was like a new phone I had to download all my apps again. Very fustrating situation the att store couldn’t help and the apple store didn’t have any appointments available until three days later. I wish I hadn’t tried to uplaod it.

    • Dwight

      Had my 4s iPhone to lock once. Was told to press home button & power button at the same time for a reboot. Hold the 2 buttons for 3 sec.

      • Momofiphone

        My daughter’s phone would not come on after the update so I tried this and it came back… thank you!!!! I was really frustrated because she is 2 years away from an upgrade and I was regretting letting her get apple. My husband and I gave galaxys (s3/s4) and never have problems.

    • Kimberly

      I am now having the same stupid screen… USB plug with iTunes pic. Just plugged it up to the computer to restore. :(

      • Nachshon

        Same thing happened to my iPhone 4

        • justin

          I updated to ios7.since i did that…i can’t type on mxit or read anything,then mxit crashes.what do i do????

  • Sonia Scott

    Can’t connect to my wifi. Invalid password. It worked fine before the upgrade.

    • Jaque

      I am having the same problem. Every time I try to connect to my wifi it says I have the wrong password. I have to shut off my iphone5 and my wifi router and let them reset, and then it will connect. The problem is that is is a temporary fix. A few hours later it drops off wifi and I have to do it all over again. Anyone know a permanent fix??

      • http://www.hamiltoons.com Scott

        Same here :(

  • Sam

    It’s draining my batter! It’s insane how it’s draining my battery! I was told to reinstall it cause it could have software problems! WTH!

    • Sheila

      Same problem here. Also really dislike the color scheme. Batter noticeable depletes. Any advise? Plus will not let me retrieve voicemail without a password, which I have never set.

    • Deborah Lanigan

      My iPad 2 battery drained complete right after I upgraded both iPad and iPhone 4S . Plugged in the iPad a 8 am… At 10:30 pm it had reached 48%! During the night when I put it down the connection dislodged. Morning, dead. 8 am to 3:30 pm it charged to 17 %. Called Apple . Still , btw, the best customer service in this country. They immediately said they would send me a new one. The iPhone battery was draining faster but not like the iPad. Other issues with that. Not loading pages… Would time out. Hit contacts… Facebook opened… Closed, back to home screen. This scenario could occur with any iconi hit.
      The biggest issue was I simply had not investigated this upgrade. Most of us purchase a phone not based on functionality … We actually make the decision based on it is visually what we want. I explained to Apple that I work very hard for my dollars. I purchases the apple products I have in a large part because I liked the way they looked… The way the software looked. I no longer had the 2 products I purchased.
      They said the would send me 2 new devices to arrive in 5-7 days. I told them NOT to upgrade prior to sending ( yes, folks… Nobody is stuck with IOS 7 like everyone on the net is posting.
      I also asked if they could please call my local Apple Store , tell them what I’m doing, instruct them not to upgrade prior to handing them to me. She did a 3 way call… I was in the Apple Store in 20 min . We swapped out. I set up my new devices there to insure the stores tech support did not upgrade prior to the sales person handing them to me.
      Every Apple Store, Best Buy, Walmart.. Etc only have devices in stock that are running on IOS 6.1.3-4.
      If you go in to purchase… They will take out of the box and upgrade it . I made sure Apple gave them specific instructions. I read a million times online ” once done … You can’t go back. Luckily “can’t” has never been part of my vocabulary… And commons sense told me that back stock in every store across the country are all IOS 6.
      Unfortunaky all 2000 photos in my camera roll are gone. 6 is what remains. I’ve been researching data recovery software . Some are specific for IOS and retrieving photos. I had done backups on icloud and PC but have done a restore with the new devices and no photos are showing up on cloud or iTunes.
      Logic tells me they weren’t deleted so they exist somewhere. Just don’t know where and not sure about these ” recovery ” program sic
      Any thoughts on this issue?

  • TLG

    Downloaded the update today. It took 39 minutes and worked flawlessly. No problems at all.

  • Michael H.

    From start to finish in about 20 minutes. No problems !

  • Shannon Silva

    Just downloaded apple ios7, took me 20 minutes to download while traveling and could not use the Maps feature. The security features better be good in this one, or else it is a waste of an operating system. The graphics suck!!!!

  • http://www.webpronews.com/ios-7-download-problems-run-rampant-2013-09 Peggy

  • Peejay

    I cannot update my ipad mini.. When I Press the software update at it just Shows checking for update. Waited 12 hours still the same. Please help on trouble shooting thank you

    • Pat

      Make sure your IPad is plugged in. It needs at least 50% charge to run the update.

  • Gary

    Downloaded last night in about 10 minutes without a glitch. The software is very easy to use, the colors vibrant and the programs run much faster.

  • http://www.manilaeventsexclusive.com Organizer

    simultaneous download could be the reason

  • Daffy

    Apple sucks.

  • Nicole

    I downloaded the new update on my phone and my daughter did the same to her phone. Now, for some reason when I send her a text it comes right back to me? How do I fix this? And also, I’m getting some of her friends texts. Called Apple and they couldn’t help.

    • Tom

      Call your carrier and they can help

    • Gail

      Were you ever able to solve this problem? We are having the same issue with three phones. We are getting text messages from each others phones and from friends. Sometimes they go to all three of our phones and other times it is just two and on occasion they only go to the correct phone number.

      • Rachel

        Try going to Settings / Messages / Send & Receive – Here it shows you all the numbers that are connected and can be switched off. Hope that helps

  • Sharon

    I updated my iPad 4 to iOS7 and I cannot get any programs to open. Help

  • Kory

  • Harry

  • Ian

    Since I downloaded iOS7 on my I phone 4 – I’m having problems with text messages when I type my message nothing comes on my screen for about 15 seconds and then the message types out – When you type the letters they don’t high light like they did before I uploaded iOS 7 – can anyone advise me how to resolve this problem – many thanks

    • Alice

      Download took about 35 minutes, but now the kepboard is messed up. The first letter comes up as normal than nothing. If you continue typing it takes several seconds for all the other words you typed to come up. You can’t shift to get the numbers etc. I’ve restarted the phone 3 times and it doesn’t help. Also, all personal photos I use for the lock screen or home screen are MASSIVE! It says you can scale and save, but you can’t. Over all not impressed, because without the keyboard the phone is pretty useless!

    • jon

      My issues are the same as the previous 2. Slow texting and some apps are gone from home screen.

    • Danny

      I got this help from apple …May I ask if you’ve tried doing a hard reset on your phone to see if that fixes the issue? won’t lose a thing!!! It’s just a way of forcing the phone to shut down and restart, that’s all. Do it by pressing and holding both the power and home buttons simultaneously for about 12 seconds or so, and that should do it!!!

      • Alan

        Danny thanks a lot for this. The hard reset did it for me; I had these problems even with icloud completely disabled. Alan.

    • Randal

      “Disable ‘documents and data’ in the iCloud settings and that fixes all keyboard problems.”

      • Nitin

        That worked like a charm! Is there anyother method to speed up the lag without disabling the document and data in icloud

      • Elisa

        Thanks. It worked! But what does that mean for my apps?

      • LARRY

        Randle that work great” many thanks

      • Suze

        Thanks so much, that worked finally!

      • Pat Barwick

        Thank you! This worked immediately!!!!

      • Claire

        Randal, if i could, I’d kiss you! Thanks. Now I don’t want to throw my phone across the room, which I suspected was apples master plan.

    • LARRY

      ian I agree with you1 since e download TEXTING SUCKS.

    • GAil Meis

      I have the same problem. I uploaded 7.0 with no problem. However when I type a text or on facebook, there is a 15 to 20 sec delay in seeing what I just typed. How do you fix this?

    • Mackenna

      To stop the delay, go onto iCloud > documents and data and turn it off. Then go onto your messages and type something in to see if there’s no delay. From my research this is only a temporary fix and apple need to find a way to fix this bug. I hope this helps (:

      • Rozimac

        It worked! Many thanks Mackenna.

    • Rozimac

      I am having the same problem, it was driving me crazy having to wait at least 10 seconds between typing a text message. But I have found that I can type several words, then wait and eventually they come up, now driving me mad rather than crazy! Come on Apple, you can do better than this.

  • Collygirl

    I just downloaded iOS 7 to my iPhone 4S. And all my apps are gone… Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. help!

  • Katrina

    Really hating the beige colour scheme, everything looks like big coloured balloons – reminds me of a children’s video game the way it looks and operates, very cheap looking.
    Has anyone worked out how to keep your photos the same size when using them for wallpaper? This is blowing photos up so big you only see a piece of the picture .. I’ve tried everything I can think of :-(

    • Marzi

      The same thing is happening to me! I tried to change my home screen after I got iOS 7 then change it back but now the picture is huge. Not liking that at all.

  • Emma Ramsden

    Since updating my iphone I can’t receieve texts from some of my contacts, even though they are receiving mine. How do I fix this? x

    • http://www.thepatrioticpam.com Pam @ The Patriotic Pam

      Emma….sounds like you guys are sharing an Apple ID. You can share Apple ID within your iTunes store in your settings, but if you also share that same Apple ID for iCloud settings, one of you will receive the others text messages. It’s new to IOS7. Hope this helps. For more IOS7 Tips and Tricks try http://www.thepatrioticpam.com/2013/09/apple-iphone-ios7-tips-and-tricks.html

      Since upgrade to io7, I have a six to eight second delay between all screens especially when sending or receiving e-mail. I’m thinking about dropping Apple and going Android now. This is not and I’m not buying anything extra for my 4S.

  • Jdoho

    My iPhone went into restore mode and I’ve lost all photos, etc. I’ve tried for 2 days to get the phone working again. Apple is telling me that it is a problem with my network. The guy form Apple yesterday ended with “try to have a nice day”.

    • Missy

      I had two problems, My Itunes account had been disabled and could not download or update any apps except the IOS7.After the IOs7 download I had wi-fi connection problems. On surfing the web I found the phone number for Apple customer service, and dialed it from my Iphone. 1-800-694-7466. . I got the help I needed,, they contacted Itunes and they enabled my account and brought it up to date.. Then I was told to reinstall the apps I was having problems with. Now everything works perfect and I got the speed back in my wi-fi.

  • Chris

    My iPhone won’t let me upload videos to YouTube I hit publish and then it just freezes up. It’s been doing this since the ios7 update.

  • Mark

    Well, iOS 7 only took 1 hour for me to install. Check Apple’s iOS 7 compatibility chart. It worked just fine on my iPad mini.

  • Maryann

    Is anyone having trouble with their texts? In the other version I was able to delete portions of my texts without deleting the entire message and also miss the forward button on screen bottom. There are some portions of the text I need to keep without a complete deletion.

    My camera is jacked up after updating my iPhone 4 it’s only 3 weeks old and the main reason I got this phone was for the camera. I can use front ire where you can see yourself but the regular view from the back doesn’t work. Also my front screen is now the flashlight it won’t work from the front screen where it’s supposed to. Very frustrated to say the least. It took over 2.5 hrs for my phone to upload!

    Well bug in deleting emails, as it keeps unchecking itself, and talk about draining the battery, I have hardly any apps or use my phone and am recharging 2-3 times a day….

  • Keith

    Since I’ve downloaded the OS7 to my 5, I’m having trouble with my viewing videos.

  • Randal

    regarding the “lagging keystrokes”
    “Disable ‘documents and data’ in the iCloud settings and that fixes all keyboard problems.”

  • Karen

    Since loading iOS7 I cannot get sound for videos without plugging in my earbuds. What’s with that. I can’t adjust the volume at all.

  • Sam Henning

    I was in the minority as I managed to download ios7 to my iphone 5 without much trouble. I had to delete all my videos to free up enough space though. Now I have come to reload them from the icloud I just keep getting an error message and told to try again later. Driving me mad.

  • rileydj@verizon.net

    I downloaded to an iPad (ipad 3 I think)and it only took 20 mins.
    But now all my web sites require a complete log on every time – so bad I quit using the ipad!
    Tried accepting cookies, told it to aut fill asswords, etc.
    and the flat colors – hate it!
    Hate the hole damn upgrade now – what good did it do?

  • Fouad

  • kate b

    Having a nightmare of a time with this update. Ready to throw phone through the window! Arggh!

    I got that error message after a half hour of downloading. Had to restore my phone three times now, at least 10 minutes each time. ALL my apps are gone. And I hate this new font – it’s hard to read. Grrrrr!

    G-d F-ing d-mn it!

    Anyone have any idea how I can get my apps back? Is going through and download everything again my only option? F!

  • Cathy Mac

    Since downloading iso7 I am getting zero sound from my iPad.
    In order to try and fix this problem I have been told to erase everything and re-download.
    However, I can’t back up several apps for which I have paid. It appears I need to have a computer o. Which to download iTunes to save these. It is all a great deal of trouble and meanwhile I am missing radio programmes that I seriously wanted to hear.
    So, think twice before downloading iso7!
    I wonder what Apple are going to do to help.

  • Jan Barber

    Your article here only mentions phones. What about iPads? I downloaded ios v7 to my ipad no problem, but do not like it. Cannot play many games, have locationa on my photo albums which bear no resemblance to where I live, and can’t find out how to change the map locations. I don’t like the general presentation, and find any benefits are far out weighed by faults. I wish I had never upgraded. I’ve read loads of complaints on various web sites about incompatibility with games, notably Zynga. Are apple trying to force us to buy more of their games?

  • Don

    iOS 7 has consolidated all my different mailboxes into one big mess!

  • DZ

    I have an iPhone 4S and just did the iOS 7.0 update a couple days ago. I’m having one huge problem so far which is bothering me. I have an Apple TV which I’ve been using since last Christmas to mirror what’s on my phone onto my TV.. it’s been working beautifully all this time. After the update was completed, the Apple TV Mirroring option disappeared from my phone. Does anyone know if this is just a temporary bug? Is there anyway to fix it? If this can’t be fixed, I feel like Apple just reached into my pocket and stole a hundred bucks from me (the cost of the Apple TV). I really hope I don’t need to wait a whole year to use my Apple TV again.. that’s how much longer I have until I can upgrade my phone through Verizon. Does anyone else have this problem? Any answers out there? Thanks!

  • Ammar Malik

    I updated my 4GS to IOS 7 few daya go. it worked well for one & half day but then it starts “No Service” issues.
    Now completely No Service on my sim with any network.
    Any one faced/heard such issue?
    Pls Pls any help would be appreciated…

  • Sherleen

    Is anybody having any problems charging their phone after installing the new iOS 7 update? I am noting that it does not show the phone is being charged at the top right of the screen and I am not sure whether it is charging or not. Just started trying to charge it a few minutes ago and saw this. I tried to charge on my computer and it did not appear that it is charging. Plugging it into the wall doesn’t show it is charging so I guess time will tell if it is actually charging. Just wondered if anyone noticed this or if this is just a problem that popped up out of the blue on my phone.

  • atalie hoes

    i kinda dont like this update because i cant text very well, it keeps glitching and is acting very slow, my phone is terrible now and doesnt work. i cant stand my phone now cuz of this update!i have to use my ipod 4 to text now!!!!!!!! :(

    It’s tough getting used to it but it is growing on me. The One major complaint I have is that I’ve noticed my iPhone 4S that was supper fast on iOS 6 and now is very slow with 7. It takes longer to downl

    • http://Duffysautoservice.com Bryan

      I was saying it is slower to download anything now.
      I believe they will fix it but if they don’t I’ll be pissed I upgraded my phone. Can we do a restore from back up and put 6 back on our phone?

    Updated to ios7. Now all contacts are gone! Texts have no names. Backed up to computer and iCloud before updating. Now when I go to restore they aren’t in the cloud and when I restore from computer, they appear then a few moments later they are gone! What gives?? This totally stinks!

  • Andrew Parry

    Have installed iOS 7 I like the simplistic feel although does remind me of a skin cream add its so clinical the key problem for me is that the keyboard doesn’t enable in the contacts .. So now no matter how often I click in the field I get no keyboard whatsoever .. Frustrating to say the least..

  • Ivan Deshmukh

    I have used ipods/itouch for the past 10 years with no problems but I find the new ios7 had caused most of my videos to appear as empty files (0 bytes)…I have lost most of the videos it took hours to find and download. Now when I download videos via Rocket/Youtube iTunes keeps stalling and often deletes all my videos. Please tell me if this mess is going to be resolved. All I keep doing is repeat downloads to restore the videos that iTunes keeps deleting.HELP!

  • patches53

    Can’t update due to:
    Size of phone – 16Gb
    Size of update
    Available space left on my phone.

  • Jay

    If you want your IPhone 4S and 4 to keep performing well, then do not install IOS 7. Anytime there is a new IPhone, Apple comes out with an update then makes all older models crash or lose performance. I have been an iPhone user since the first iPhone and experienced this everytime. I am completely happy with my 4S and until Apple comes out with an Iphone that is an extreme upgrade I’ll just stick to the current IOS I have installed. I would rather upgrade by personal choice rather than be influence by a debilitating software update.

  • Liz

    I am selling my Apple shares. This is so bad. I lost all my contacts. If this is the best they can do there is no future for this company.

  • Karen Caprioni

    I didnt have any problem with the download other then the fact that I cant get my old version back. This supposedly “wonderful” update eats my battery life like no other. I have turned off a lot of unused things to try and conserve my battery but nothing helps. HELP I WANT MY OLD VERSION BACK! I hardly use my phone yet just one thing eats up battery like heck. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

  • Jill

    Love the new update, however everything I text to anyone my husband gets the texts as well and the same with him!!! How do I fix this????

  • Maggie

    I updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 7. But I have a contact who is getting all my texts 3x.

  • Larry Stovall

    I downloaded iOS7 on my iPhone 4S, and it worked flawlessly, looked really nice. Apple released an update iOS7.02, and now my phone cannot connect to WIFI. I have tried several approaches to correct this but my phone now provides about 25% of the value it had yesterday. Apple needs to address this, as there is a lot of traffic on the internet about this same problem–and no one has answers.

    This is a major FUBAR and the competition, no matter how disgusting some of their products, are now looking like a good alternative. Apple historically does not stumble; in this case they fell off the chair.

  • Jill

    Apple has officially ruined the “user friendly” version of the iPhone. When I first got my iPhone 2 weeks after it came out, my kids could use it. Now in 3 days, I have NO idea what to do. Everyone I know who hasn’t downloaded iOS, I’ve warned them. DONT DO IT!!!!!!

  • Janine B

    I am able to send text messages but can’t receive any. I also am unable to connect with iMessage because it says there is a network issue. It is awful. I use the phone for work and this is a huge problem. So upset! Does anyone know how to fix this? I have spent so much time trying to fix it without success.

  • Angery customer

    Absolute horrible update. Since I’ve upgraded to the new ios 7 I’ve had nothing but problems. Every night around 7-8 o clock I no longer receive anybody’s text messages for several hrs until around 11-12 I will receive every text people sent me all at once. Also my imessage will no longer work around this time and all my texts take up to 30 minutes to send and when they do people complain to me they received the text several times. My battery dies twice as fast as before even with all my apps off and using the same previous battery saving settings I had before. Apple has a lot of work ahead of them to fix this garbage upgrade

  • Nathalie

    Since the update trying to put a photo as my wallpaper has become a serious problem it magnifies the photo x 10 so u can’t move it scale the photo or anything it looks obscure n pixeled, n that’s only the minor problems someone please let Apple know “if it’s not broke don’t fix it” the wallpaper feature was fine before now it’s just annoying

    My husband and I both have ipads – since installing ISO7 both of them completely lose their charge; I charged to 100% before going to bed and in the morning both of them were as flat as a tack. Yes, I did close off anything that was open and this has only happened since installing the ISO. Tried different power cords in case one was not working but no good. Any suggestions please? Oh my Ipad has changed to Telstra in top left hand corner.

    One reason I dumped Android and got an ip5 was to avoid androids instability. Low and behold Apple has found it necessary to force a large o/s download that will not only eat up space on my 16 gb phone that I could have used to shoot video I may not be able to use my device because it may lock me out and be a useless brick.

    The old O/S on my phone is working fine. LEAVE IT THE HELL ALONE. Can’t Apple that?

    After my ip5 croaks out I guess I’ll back over to android.

    they really did it this time. yesterday my phone said there is a new release even tough i updated to 7.0 on friday, so i thought that there might of been some secutity problems so they came up with a patch right away so i did it…
    my phone is useless piece of shit (i am at the hospital and was using my phone to stay connected) and does not turn on anymore. it shows power cable and itune icon but the phone does not response to anything. hard reset simply takes you to the same place. however my ipad went through it w no problem even though since 7.0 os typing on it is lagging big time….

    My iPhone 5 was working well until I downloaded iOS7. I have lost internet connectivity. Friends who have done the same and have telstra appear not to have problems. I use amaysim and their carrier Optus is where the problem seems to be. However getting info on this is not easy

  • Mike

    This is perfect example of too big to fail. When is apple going to wake up take some money out of their pocket and spend a little on a tutorial program. All it would take is a instructional walk through for new programs like ios7 that go over all the changes, formatted in a way that you could select mail,camera,safari, whatever you get the idea. How about a pop up after you download new software that gives you the option to go to apple site to view it that you can hide until later never show again if you’ve ever owned a computer you now what I’m talking about. Blockbuster was sitting on top of the mountain ten years ago and didn’t embrace change or in house investment and along came Netflix. Denial is not a business strategy, investment into you’re consumers wants and needs is.

  • Dianagc

    Had no problem installing ios 7 on my 4S, the only problem I’m having is with Words with Friends. When I open the app it immediately locks up the phone with a message that says I have to go to iTunes to “Use Push Notifications.” But I can’t even find that! I have deleted and re-installed the app three times and have turned off the phone using the top button and sliding the “Turn Phone Off” command many, many times! Any help will be appreciated…

  • Anthony

    I just got my first iPhone a few days ago, an iPhone5 and everyone told me to get ios7, I got it yesterday and all was fine, today, all my music is gone off my phone, 2240 songs but it’s still showing the data is being used….what the heck Apple….

  • Michael

    Upgraded (or attempted to) new Ipad to 7. First I needed 3GB, then it warned me that I have no power source connected and my battery was less than 50%. COntinue? YES…..It appeared to have done the upgrade until the very last second before it appeared to be done with the update (20 minutes later), displaying: Cannot install due to power being less than 50% and not connected to power source?

    Why then make it optional at the beginning of the install when it is required as a last check before done with the update. That’s an insane bug. I let you though the door to kick you out at the other end for the same reason I warned you about but let you go through…

    Seems like it was written in “subjective C” :).

  • Doris

    Ios7 is really bad news I hate it. Too many buttons to push to send an email with attachments. Or text Email does not work right. Voice memo don’t work right , calendar is all messed up. I wish I could upgrade I sure would not download this mess again.

    Since downloading ios7 onto my iPad….
    Cannot watch all videos. I can watch short ones. However, if for instance, I watch 48 hours, or dateline, the video stops EVERY single time between 12 and 15 minutes. I get to watch that stupid circle spin and spin and spin.

    ALSO, if I search the web, pages come up but they are all dead, not able to click them.

    I am about ready to drown my iPad in the tub. If you have answers please reply.

    Since the iOS 7 update, when I listen to music w/ the landscape/ full screen feature, I get random album art that has nothing to do with the song or music video I’m listening too or watching. Same happens with my playlists. Any work around with this issue?

    I upgrated my 4s when it first came out, I have just started have the following problems in the past couple of weeks.
    When I am on any and every call, the call is dropped, even if I have full bars. I don’t believe it is an AT&T issue. My pictures are showing on my camera roll, but when I try to view 1 at a time it the picture is completely black! Facebook contuniues to crash on a regular basis. Help!

    My iPad uploaded the new operating system just fine…then the problems started. Time clock was wrong. I can not update any apps at all. It keeps telling me I can’t update New Zealand apps. What the heck. I’m in USA . My i pad worked fine before this stupid update. I wish I never updated to the new operating system. Grrrr… I am NOT going to update my iphone. This 7 update is horrible, and the keyboard is ugly monochrome and not user friendly as the old system. I wish I could go back to 6 .
