iOS 7 drives a young child to tears

iOS 7 drives a young child to tears
“No! I don’t want iiiiitttt,” sobs little Jack, 4 years old, and terribly troubled at the appearance of iOS 7 and its lack of skeumorphism in the user interface.

Apparently pastel colors are only so-effective at enticing children, and little Jack is evidently immune to such soft and bright colors or the accompanying parallax view as the icons seem to float above the wallpaper.

Imagine the horror this child faced after seeing the iPad his father just updated. While iOS 7 brings a host of new features to the table, there is just no satisfying some people, and young Jack could very well be the personification of those disaffected users.

We catch the exchange mid-meltdown where little Jack seems to be denying it is the same iPad he has used before. “What’s different?” he asks. “Everything!” weeps the child.

“You’re just gonna have to get used to it,” states his dad. “No! I don’t want it!” The full meltdown then ensues and you can imagine that little Jack was not allowed to play with the iPad (at a minimum). Thankfully, the video is only 16 seconds long, however, fair warning, that may exceed the tolerance levels for some of our readership’s ability to endure the sights and sounds of a wailing child.

I would stuff a piece of a kitkat bar down that boy's throat. Ones with an android logo. The other piece will be for me.

Naw, he doesn't care. It's the internet; everybody's a bad boy. The best you can do is hope they don't reproduce, otherwise keep the flammenwerfer nearby to spray all over its nest.

Nope, you can clearly see this kid is crying because of the iOS 7.

The story of the video : Kid is crying because of the iOS 7.

iOS 7, iOS 7, iOS 7... Mr. Grammar Nazi, there's nothing wrong with my comment. It's just a problem with your job, you're too focused on your job. Relax, take a day off, you will feel better.

Then it should be something like this. It's just a freaking OS / It's just freaking iOS. Not sure though :)

Yes there is.

You tried correcting me but clearly failed. I proved you wrong once again like always. :)

Wow..fabulous how today's children have grown with these gadgets and now they take them for granted. I've grown with Windows 95 but i really don't feel like i should cry over an update or a device. I guess that the kid is just as old as the first iPhone.

You don't feel like crying over an update because your butt is around 22+ years old. This kid will probably cry for anything 'til his mid teens.

Sort of is in a way. When I was growing up, my parents always taught me to be tough against the changes life might throw at you. As little as changes in iOS could make him cry... the kid is a bit soft... Sorry I might be a little harsh here, but if that was me as little kid my mom would just start count to three to stop me from crying anymore.

The kid is four. Soft, maybe, but I think there's a practical limit on how emotionally developed he could be. He probable shrugs off scorpions but wasn't ready for 7.

I have no words. But maybe apple could pick this kids brain and a few other s to see what they like and make a kids corner. "Oh what an idea" I do agree that he need not cry over an upgrade c'mon kid walk it off.

children don't like it, girls don't even like it. Who the hell likes iOS7. People who are either a bit too devoted to apple, or people who have never had Android. Oh well there is no saving some people. Poor kid.. no one should be subjected to iOS7

I'm honestly not surprised, my younger sister updated and she is rather annoyed with it, and my mother has held out on updating her IP5 because she is apprehensive about the change. It says an unfortunate thing about people's perception of changing technology...

if it was my kid, it would be "if you dont like it, then dont use it". Of course, i'd never own an ipad, so if this problem did ever occur, i could easily change the launcher to something better.

Children of these are so spoiled, thats not a good thing. When i was little we did not have mobile phones we played outside. If the kids are spoiled to much they will become brats!
