Apple released the long-awaited iOS 7 update for the iPhone (4 and later), iPad (2 and later), iPad Mini and iPod Touch (fifth generation) today. The problem is that some users have been getting errors trying to download it. Obviously this isn’t sitting too well with the impatient.
One user shared a screenshot with us:
It doesn’t appear to be a carrier-specific issue. As you can see, that was via AT&T. AppsGoneFree shares a similar image via a Sprint device.
There are quite a few complaints making their way to Twitter as well.
I've deleted all my apps and pictures for…"An error occurred downloading iOS 7.0" please tell me this is a joke????
