This isn't where you turn off the passcode.  All this does is turn access to the Control Center on or off from the passcode screen.

To turn off the passcode, in Settings go to General, then Passcode Lock.  You'll be prompted to enter the passcode.  After that, you can click on Turn Passcode Off.

I have an iPad Mini and iPhone 5 and when I double click the Home button by scrolling left and right I see ALL the open apps including previews of what they have open. So I don't know why you are claiming that there is only a display of three apps. Perhaps that is all you had open?

Looks like Snapseed has an iOS7 bug that won't save certain edits. As one of my go to apps that makes iOS 7 a real looser for me.

I have not tried Snapseed yet till I read your post. What is curious is that when you bring a "filtered" shot into Snapseed, it only "sees" the unfiltered version. (Is this what you were referring to?) What I found funny is that the Google+ app has the same problem. Perhaps Apple's way of steering people away from Google (tongue somewhat firmly in cheek) as they are both Google products? Because Flickr and Instagram's apps see the filtered versions.

That is what I've read. I realize all bugs will eventually be fixed but I'm on the line about rushing into the new os. Besides, I think its plain and unexciting looking. Photos on white? wrong!

Re: Lets Hear your iOS7 Horror Stories
In reply to Hulamike, Sep 27, 2013

Definitely no "horror" stories. Updated two iPhone 5's and an iPad Mini and all went great. I happen like the new colors/format, though I can see why people who are complaining about all the basic apps now being so bright/white.

Only "issues" I have had is something I hope will change in the future update:

(1) When you take a filtered picture with the Camera app (and I do really like the new camera and Photo apps) and it is uploaded to Photostream (my method of choice for transferring photos to Aperture on my iMac), the other iOS devices see the filtered version but neither Aperture nor iPhoto on my iMac (latest version of operating system and apps) see the filtered version. Only way to get the filtered version onto the computer is to either email them or setup a "shared photostream".

(2) Also, some apps - like the ones by Google (Google+ and Snapseed) don't see the filtered versions, only the original one. Strange because both Flickr and Instagram see the filtered version and they are all accessing the Camera Roll.

(3) Major quibble with iTunes Radio. First off - I love it and already stopped paying for Spotify. But the only way to get rid of the commercials is to pay for iTunes Match. OK - no big deal - even though a bit of a pain since my library is way above their 25,000 imposed limit. But while on my iMac, iTunes will allow me to play my own music library OR iTunes Radio, the iOS devices are not that smart. Once you sign into iTunes Match (tried on both iPad Mini and iPhone 5), you can no longer access songs that you synced from your computer. So you are forced to use cellular data either for the iTunes Radio (understandable) or to stream your own files using iTunes Match. Do wish Apple will eventually let us just pay the same $25 fee without having to resort to iTunes Match.

Have heard a lot of complaints about this, but I have not really noticed it yet. And if so, for me I would put it down to accessing the phone more through the Notification Center and using iTunes Radio more.

With the native camera apps is harder to switch between Still and Video.

Someone else answered this.

Shutter now works in burst mode all the time. No longer works in "release to shoot".

Wow - did not even notice that yet. But I never used the "release to shoot" method anyway. Cool.

Photos app background is white when looking at pictures instead of black, hate that.

If you tap on a photo to enlarge it and then tap again, it changes the background from White to Black. But would be nice if there was an option to set the default background, but it is there.

Like I replied before, if you tap on a photo to enlarge it (from the basic view) and then tap again, it changes the background from white to black if you prefer that. They should have a setting to change the default backgrounds - or at least tone them down a bit.

I have read a lot of complaints about the stark white backgrounds in the basic apps, and I would assume that eventually there will be an option to change or darken it. Only really bothers me in the Photos app.

I had not even noticed that until you posted. Much easier than digging into a menu to set. Once changed to black it stays black until you change it to white. Once white it stays white until you can it to black.

It depends on the Processor A4, A5, A6, etc

Ask iPhone 4 owners and they will tell you.

Is a well know fact that iOS7 is more resource hungry than iOS6 and before.

I have an iPod5 (A5 dual core processor) and i can tell is slower.

Battery runs shorter.

It should be, iOS7 is more resource intensive, hence shorter battery life.

I hope they optimize it as iOS7 matures, but for now iOS6 is more power efficient and iOS5 was even better in that regard.

With the native camera apps is harder to switch between Still and Video.

A minor complain, not a deal breaker.

Yes, i noticed that later, is really weird.

In general iOS7 UI use white background extensively, that might be great for paper, but not ergonomic in back-lit screens. Too harsh on eyes during bed time.

Even though I'm a big fan of minimalist style I hate the new interface, is cold, sterile, devoid of visual cues, bad ergonomic design.

I loaded it on my iPhone 4S.  I ended up turning off the parallax effect to make it operate a little more smoothly.  Ultimately, I was a little disappointed in the slight drop in apparent UI performance and it led me to order an iPhone 5S.  Now everything is right with the world.  My phone is fast and the UI is attractive AND the camera is finally what I consider responsive.

Well done, Apple!

Use two or three fingers at a time to toss app cards off the top of the screen, 2 or 3 apps at a time.  This makes it faster than the old method.

Enjoy!

I have the 5 and was very tempted but reason came through (and the general rule of thumb that I have read was not to buy the next model iPhone because generally the upgrade is not significant enough). I guess if I had an older model I might notice more of the speed hits others have felt.

I have 4GS and 3rd gen iPad. If it is slower, you would need some really good timing equipment to prove it. The difference between a blink of an eye and a blink and a quarter is pretty small.

Which OS originally before updating?
In reply to Cyril Catt, Sep 28, 2013

I hope you can restore back to the previous OS. It might help to keep your apps current before attempting an OS update. You did backup beforehand right?
