I've got it updated and I'm quite impressed, my phone seems to be running a little quicker tbh.

It does however look like an explosion has gone off in a paint factory!! I had to turn the brightness down!

Is it faster now? Used to be pants on the ipad.


The worst bit about Safari, for me, was the two fields for the url and search. Sensibly, Chrome combines these, so if you type something in wrong, it'll help, rather than laugh at you. iOS7 Safari has copied this, so it might be usable now.

I am getting on quite well, playing with it.

CAn anyone find the settings for alarm, to block change the ring tone, or do they have to be done individually?

Another thing I can't find, is on IOS6 you could show the programmes open in the background by double clicking the round button, then deleting them, thus saving battery power.

I have found the programmes, but can't see how to delete them.

You are probably seeing them all as small versions of themselves? All you do is swipe them upwards to close them - I too had to look this up!

Also to get to the search box, instead of scrolling across to the first page you just pull down from the middle of the screen and the search box appears at the top

swipe upwards.

Got three done on wednesday evening, must have been before the yanks woke up.

I like it, although it looks a bit fisher price. The phone features are good, although I hope you get the slow mo feature that the 5s has.

ETA: joanne beat me to it

I've always done those individually didn't know you used to be able to do them on mass!

I don't get the search box, I get my diary alerts. How so?

you are swiping down from the top of the home screen rather than the middle.
do the same thing just a bit lower


Also the search function is now just on the device, it doesn't include the web.
