I don't know if it's all really devs. A lot of people just pay apple and download it to get iOS 7. A lot of my co workers as well as customers I talk to do this.

His point is that not everyone who has installed iOS 7 beta is developer.

I was watching andriesen's review of iOS 7 on ip4.. quite disaapointing. Lagging, glitches and slow. Well I hope they will fix it in the final version.
What are your views?

iOS 7 is too much to run smooth on an i4. That's a single core 800MHZ CPU with 256MB of RAM, and it's only beta 2. One of my regular passengers is a dev , and he has it running on his i5. I've toyed around with it, and can honestly say its been flawless. He says it lags just a little, as a beta should, but I saw none. I think it's gonna run a lot smoother on the new hardware.

So whats the point of releasing iOS7 for ip4 users if it will lag.
I don't think so apple will release a laggy OS for their phones. It will affect their reputation.

Well it'll be optimized for each phones hardware that's it's gonna be available for. The i4 obviously won't get all the features.

I agree with you. Lets see what will they bring in the final release.
What features do you think are still missing in iOS?
1. Mass storage
22. darkkjedii (Posts: 18421; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Yes, and widgets, app drawer, and that's about it.

It's funny because Apple did not claim iOS 7 to be original... you did.
