Apple iOS 7 brings an all-new design and all-new features.

Simplicity

Simplicity is often equated with minimalism. Yet true simplicity is so much more than just the absence of clutter or the removal of decoration. It’s about offering up the right things, in the right place, right when you need them. It’s about bringing order to complexity. And it’s about making something that always seems to "just work."

On an iPhone 5 the option to switch off 3G disappears. Annoying.

Yes, of course I can read it supports "iPhone 5c/iPhone 5s", not iPhone 5, but then why does Apple push this update down the hungry throat of my iPhone 5?

The over the air update went smoothly on my iPhone 5. Not a single hiccup.

Apple made some UI tweaks that look nice, and over all the update feels a little faster, which tends to be the case.

Have you tried to switch off 3G? In my iPhone 5 the option is gone after the update to 7.1

@Pirx, you mean to only use Wifi? The option is still there. It's marked Cellular Data.

If you mean something else, then I don't know because I never had a need to turn off 3G.

Sorr, I was not precise. In the iPhone 5 with IOS 7.06 under Settings/Cellular there was the option of enabling/disabling 3G. In IOS 7.1 this option is gone. In iPhone 5S in the same place there is the option to enable/disable 4G in IOS 7.1. My rational to switch off 3G is, that the state-owned provider does not support 3G on iPhone 5, that I can live with 2G very well, and that disabling 3G saves a lot of battery power.

I performed an "over the air" update shortly after iOS 7.1 was released (iPhone 4S, 64GB). I left the phone on the desk near the router and came back 20 minutes later to find the phone unresponsive. Pressing the buttons repeatedly did little to start the OS. The phone finally came to life after pressing and holding the Hold and Home buttons together. However the phone then went into an endless loop of start and shutdown. I put the phone into restore mode and connected it to iTunes for a restore. The server returned errors repeatedly until I finally gave up and went searching the net for a manual download of the update file (http://www.iphonehacks.com/2014/03/download-ios-7-1.html)... I found it, dropped into ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates/ and began the restore process again. After a full restore of 7.1 and all previously synced settings and apps the phone came on. Unfortunately it was short lived and the screen went black again for no reason... I was able to get the phone back into restore mode and connect to iTunes again. I removed the manually downloaded firmware file and tried to restore the process again hoping the server would work this time. It did work, it downloaded the exact same file that I had manually downloaded earlier. I allowed iTunes to restore the phone to 7.1 however I did not allow the previous settings and 997 apps to be restored from a previous backup. SUCCESS... I'm happy to report that the phone is now perfect and better than before. I'm loving the snap and new look of iOS 7.1. I summised the problem to have something to do with the "restore from previous backup" process... perhaps there were too many apps to deal with. I spend a couple of hours re-downloading my most used apps and reconfiguring the settings... but other than than, it's all good now.... phew! Moral of my story: Nuke and Pave, Purge and Streamline!

You still haven't updated the system requirements.

Anywho... this is a very stable and much welcomed update to iOS 7. The system feels faster overall.

They still have NOT fixed the wifi proxy authentication issue. We have an authenticated proxy a work and you put your log/pass in and BOOM it forgets it.

So to stop myself from being bugged hundreds of times day as the background apps want access I am back to turning wifi off at work and relying on the 4G network.

I had hoped 7.1 would fix this... probably have to wait now until October for IOS 8

I've seen regular posts on this iOS page as well as the pages for products like DiskAid, iExplorer and TouchCopy, regarding using these products to manage the "Other" data that accumulates on iOS devices and keeps growing and reduces free space.

I know the folks recommending to use these products to 'manage' the issue (read: "delete data to reduce the space taken up by Other") mean well, but a little caution is in order. These recommendations are rarely accompanied by specific information on what exactly one is supposed to delete. And unless a user is absolutely sure what they are doing when viewing the internal file structure of their device, they should not be mucking around.

The fact is, there is no clear "Other" folder or clear indication once you view the files on your device, exactly what is considered Other by iOS. Haphazardly going in and guessing and deleting files will potentially corrupt the built in indexes and DB of the device and totally destroy your sync indexing and actually make the problem worse by creating orphaned files that iOS has no clue is even there anymore.

In my experience, the stuff that makes up 'Other' is not the obviously named data that is clearly a movie file or music file, etc. it is the files with cryptic names in deep layers of cryptic folder names.

I am not trying to discourage use of these programs (I use TouchCopy myself), I'm just saying that novices need to be careful when considering remarks that using these programs will solve the problem of the ever expanding Other. IMO its like deleting files in the System/Library folder to free up disk space on your hard drive. will it free up more space? Yeah, it will....

The only safe solution I have found to reduce the space occupied by 'Other' is periodically doing a backup and then restore. Your settings and everything will get restored, then you just need to resync your apps, music, etc. This seems to put the device back to a pristine state. Over time, 'Other' will grow again. The more you sync (whether adding OR deleting) "Other" grows at a faster rate. Other can grow or stay the same even AFTER REMOVING content, which sounds counterintuitive, but supports the suggestion that Other is internal data related to caching, indexing, temp copies, app data, etc.

The web is full of pointers on how to do backup and restore to reduce the Other clutter, just search for it.

That's good advice. My iPhone shows 2.17GB of "Other" files. 6.59GB for music and 6.10GB for Apps. 1.77GB videos and 3.712GB for photos. I still have 7.21GB free. I'm not going to worry about it. :)

Mysticalos had trouble on 10 Mar 2014
download has failed twice already. Does anyone have any none craptunes download links? Itunes doesn't even support resumable downloads or pausing without starting entire thing over again. Considering apple doesn't even know how to release DELTA updates and makes you always download whole OS as is, it being not resumable is far worse. at least with an HTTP download it might be resumable as long as you do NOT use an apple browser (cause safari rarely supports resuming either when chrome does).

Macinman had trouble on 08 Mar 2012
I could use some help here. This is the first iOs update I haven't been able to install. from the iPhone itself when i do a software check, it gives the message Unable to check for update. An error occurred while checking for a software update. I have verizon wireless as my cell carrier, and the iPhone 4. I also have verizon for my internet access well, via 4G LTE. I have a mobile hotspot that i use for wifi, everything else works including apple software update from my macbook. I was able to get the iTunes 10.6 update without problems. When I tried the update process via iTunes, it just says contacting iPhone software update server, and then just sits there until I click stop.

Thinking it might be an iso issue i took the phone to the library here on the apartment complex where they have public wifi from a del connection, from a different iso with the same error. What's going on? i've never had this much trouble with apple updates before. Can someone help? thanks

I have an iPod touch 4th generation, 8 gigabytes. It's been "downloading" iOS 4.3.1. for almost 2 hours now. I'm about to yank it out of the computer because based on what I've read, it's useless either way. I'm running Windows XP.

Someone help me, I don't want to go back to my shuffle.

Let's hope it doesn't happen to others, but all the app folders I had set up were gone after the update, and the apps distributed across several screens. Took a long time to redo all the folders I had. Also the voicemail thing happened to me. Not the cleanest update, for sure

Apple iOS 7 brings an all-new design and all-new features.

Simplicity

Simplicity is often equated with minimalism. Yet true simplicity is so much more than just the absence of clutter or the removal of decoration. It’s about offering up the right things, in the right place, right when you need them. It’s about bringing order to complexity. And it’s about making something that always seems to "just work." When you pick something up for the first time and already know how to do the things you want to do, that’s simplicity.

Control Center

Control Center gives you quick access to the controls and apps you always seem to need right this second. Just swipe up from any screen -- including the Lock screen -- to do things like switch to Airplane mode, turn Wi-Fi on or off, or adjust the brightness of your display. You can even shine a light on things with a new flashlight. Never has one swipe given you so much control.

Notification Center

Notification Center lets you know about new mail, missed calls, to-dos that need doing, and more. And a new feature called Today gives you a convenient summary of, well, today. One glance at your iPhone and you’ll know if it’s a certain someone’s birthday, if you’ll need an umbrella, or if traffic will slow down your commute. You’ll even get a heads-up on tomorrow. You can access Notification Center from any screen, including the Lock screen. Just swipe down. And get up to speed.

Multitasking

Multitasking has always been a smart way to switch between apps. Now it’s even smarter. Because iOS 7 learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you launch them. So if you tend to check your favorite social app at 9:00 a.m. every day, your feed will be ready and waiting for you. That’s multitasking in iOS 7. It knows what you want to do before you do.

Camera

Camera in iOS 7 puts all your shooting formats -- still, video, panorama, and now square -- front and center. With a swipe, you can capture what you want the way you want. Fast. And new filters let you do even more with each image. Give it a retro feel. Dial up the contrast. Or go black and white. Artistic license is all yours.

Photos

Now there are faster, easier, and more delightful ways to scroll down memory lane. Introducing Years, Collections, and Moments -- smart groupings of your photos and videos based on time and place. Tap Years and all your shots fill the screen. Each year holds Collections, like your trip to San Francisco. And in that Collection are distinct Moments -- photos from Union Square, videos from AT&T Park. So you can find a shot from whenever, wherever, in no time.

AirDrop

Sending a photo or a document to someone via text or email is fine. But if that someone is right next to you, a text or an email suddenly feels like too many steps. Enter AirDrop for iOS. It lets you quickly and easily share photos, videos, contacts -- and anything else from any app with a Share button. Just tap Share, then select the person you want to share with. AirDrop does the rest using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. No setup required. And transfers are encrypted, so what you share is highly secure.

Safari

Browsing is bigger, better, and more beautiful with Safari in iOS 7. Buttons and bars -- like the unified smart search field -- stay hidden until you scroll to reveal them. So you see more content than ever on your screen. And with a swipe, you can go back or forward a page. It’s all designed so nothing gets in your way or slows you down.

iTunes Radio

iTunes Radio features streaming radio stations you’ll love from day one -- from the best selection of music. The more you listen, the more personalized it becomes. And it’s available on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, and Apple TV for free. It’s radio re-imagined.

Siri

Siri in iOS 7 gets a new look, a new sound, and new capabilities. It features a redesigned interface that fades into view -- on top of whatever’s on your screen. A clearer, more natural-sounding female or male voice makes Siri even easier to understand. It’s faster at answering questions and it checks more sources, such as Bing, Wikipedia, and Twitter. And Siri takes on extra tasks, like returning calls, playing voicemail, controlling iTunes Radio, and more.4

App Store

Apps Near Me -- a new feature of the App Store in iOS 7 -- shows you a collection of popular apps relevant to your current location. And the new Kids category lets you browse and buy the best apps for children based on age. iOS 7 also keeps your apps up to date automatically, so you don’t have to bother. Another bonus of automatic updates: no more little red badge begging for your attention.

Find My iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Losing your iOS device feels lousy. Thankfully, Find My iPhone can help you get it back. But if it looks like that’s not going to happen, new security features in iOS 7 make it harder for anyone who’s not you to use or sell your device. Now turning off Find My iPhone or erasing your device requires your Apple ID and password. Find My iPhone can also continue to display a custom message, even after your device is erased. And your Apple ID and password are required before anyone can reactivate it. Which means your device is still your device. No matter where it is.
