Any iOS 7 update issues? Report them here!

Any iOS 7 update issues? Report them here!
iOS 7 is finally here (and so is our iOS 7 review), and countless users around the world are downloading the new software at this very moment. For some users, though, iOS 7 will probably not arrive so smoothly. For example, we have already experienced a bit of a glitch, with the download giving us an unknown error, for a seemingly unknown reason (unknown to us, at least).

If you, too, are getting error messages, don't freak out (just yet), as there is no doubt that Apple's servers will be tremendously busy during the next few hours, which can explain the occurrence of such random issues.

Hopefully, things should be back to normal soon, but in the meanwhile, be sure to let us know if you're experiencing a problem with the download and installation of iOS 7 (or if you've found the solution to one)!

Good luck with your OS updates on Android (if you EVER get one OTA).

It won't matter even if he doesn't get an Android update coz android is already two generations ahead of its competition ;)

Yes. This is the normal reply for an Android user. It's perfectly fine for us not to get updates on non GE phone. We'll just have to deal with the bugs or break the phone's warranty by rooting and installing a more up-to-date ROM. Such is the life of an android user.

At least we didn't not wait for 4 years of incremental updates.

So far my Samsung tablet get from honeycomb to ics to jelly bean. My htc get from gingerbread to ics. Only my LG promised ics but struck at gingerbread, not a problem cross LG out and get Samsung, HTC and maybe Sony. Ninetysix, we are not saying that you should move to Android. In fact, you should only get Apple if that what makes you happy. I cross from Apple to Android because that what make me happy, i would buy Apple again when they have product that interest me again.

You know, IMO i don't think it is fair to compare iPhone verse all Androids. To make it more even it should be a comparison from iPhone to the Nexus line. Phones are released per year. Having all the other OEMs for Android is the trade off for having different looks and stuff. Its common sense. Nexus gets the same updates like iOS. At least with Android you have the options... What if you don't like the colors/design/os/features/etc of an iPhone? For example when I shop for a phone, I say I want LED Notification, some phones won't have it... others will...

Apple gives os updates from 2 years ago. Enough with the update crap. How about apple update it's market share and then we can then we can talk. The average user doesn't care about updates. They see it on the device and are like "meh". And if an average user does care about an update what are the odds they know what they are getting into? Us nerds only care about this stuff. If the device works out the box the average person could care less.

Boasting about marketshare is like McDonalds saying they sell the most burgers. You seem to think that the majority of the Android market share is coming from high-end devices.

And you seem to think that the majority of iPhones sold are the newest and best. I can assure you that isn't the case.

I assure you that the majority of iPhones sold are getting iOS7. Every single one of them can get the update as a matter of fact. You mad?'re mad.

I'm glad that I have anonymous people on the Internet who are willing to tell me how I'm feeling. Saves me a fortune on mood rings.

It's only possible for a person to show their stupidity if they open their mouth and speak... But you're so beyond that, because you write/type it and display it, to be seen forever... the iphone, iphone 3, or iphone 3GS will not receive this update.

Just wait till kit kat comes out. Smooth running low end devices will futher put nails in apples coffin. Low end to mid range is what's killing apple. That 5C is such a weak attempt.

How long till KitKat gets up to 5% marketshare? a few weeks, months, years?..LOL.

Samsung has a good reputation for updates. Most of their high end phones are running Android 4.1 or higher. You can't compare iPhones with brands like Sony, LG, HTC etc., you have to compare them with Nexus devices in terms of updates - and those phones get updates within a few days of a new Android version being released. If all else fails, root and install custom rom. My three year old Live with Walkman is running android 4.3. Tell me when the iPhone 3GS gets IOS7. Oh, whoops, I think not.

You do realize the 3Gs came out more than 4 years ago, right?

And how long till apple makes another ipad or iPhone? Further cutting features from older models forcing people to update? Just give up. Your argument about android is moot. I've seen your post on here before i registered. All you spew is bs. Jelly bean and up takes a hot steamy dump all over ios and you know it because like i said you play in bs.

"Apple gives os updates from 2 years ago". Yep, the iPhone 4, released in 2010 with ios4, just got its last update-the ios 7. That's 3 updates for the flagship. Move to android-take the GS2 for example. Released in the same year with GB 2.3, it got ICS 4.0, JB 4.1, and JB 4.2. That's again 3 major updates. Fair comparison. It's just that google's update cycle is faster, as android is evolving better. Now if some1 buys a $100 off-contract android and says he'd be better with an iPhone as it got so many updates, you see what's being done.

The big misconception of android firmware updates lacking is mostly due to Verizon. Other US Carriers have issues too, but verizon is the worst. I personally have had three updates to my GSIII and I have only had it 5 months. I could have more with root, but don't feel that big of feature changes are worth it. Also since Google Play Services has come out, features are that would have been firmware updates before are now just casually pushed out. Make the switch and don't look back. Apple are known to be poison in lots of folklore, reality is not much different. Feel the kiss of the Android prince and wake up.

As long as you get one of the major releases, you should be fine. All high end/mid range smartphone of this year will be updated to 4.4 and 5.0, probably 5.1 as well, unless you buy from an unknown manufacturer that just releases devices for giggles. High end or mid range HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG, and Sony devices from this year should all get 5.0 at least.
