    Yes you can, having tried iso 7 for a few days. I found iso 7 visually a backwards step having the same feminine feel of Samsung android and definitely DON'T like it at all. The icons are all plane and boring the themes are plane and boring the stupid signs are  plane and boring. It's like going back in time,,, i defiantly didn't pay large amounts of money for for plain and boring. And was soon to carry out the process to downgrade back to iso 6.1.3.

     

    Sorry Apple, but backwards step vote from me Apple :(

    There is no Apple supported method of downgrading your iOS.

    Hi all and Axeman1020

     

    I am using an iphone 4. i like the look and feel of ios7 but my phone has become extremely slow

     

    can anyone pls tell me if there is still a way to downgrade back to the ios6.1.3 or 6..1.4?

     

    I have read iphone has closed this window of downgrade but is it still open for iphone 4 users/

     

    Pls help me understand if it is still possible. I shall be glad to go back to the classic version which really is quick and fast.

    thanks

    Yes.

    I want the Find My iPhone/iPad/iPod option returned to non-primary icloud account.

    I was not aware this changed until I "upgraded" my iphone.

    I no longer can see the rest of the families devices without keeping track of all there accounts and passwords.

     

    Now that I search, I find many others with the same complaint.

    I just didn't know to look for this issue.

     

    So it sounds like I am now SOL and stuck with this step backward in family security.

    You can accomplish this by using the same iCloud account on all the devices.

    I don't recommend it as it can get messy with the other iCloud features.

    It is always best for everyone to have their own but it is still an option.

    Settings > iCloud > delete account then sign back in with the common Apple ID.

    Once all the devices are signed in to the same Apple ID in the iCloud settings.and Find My iPhone feature is turned on, you will be able to see them all on one account.

    I really very disappointed with this step by Apple... Its like they are ruling there customers if somebody want or not.

     

    We understand that changes are always welcome but not in this manner.. Rather giving an entire iOS update they could implement it in partition... Like change the theme, but application should remain looks same!! Then after they could change one by one application with new update!!

     

    Anyway whatever happening its good!! But not in good way!! Need a lot of work in development area!! I hope apple could understand the point of view of there customer!!

    You CAN'T downgrade to iOS 6 now, it is just not possible.

     

    Is that a clear enough answer for you?  It can't be done.

    You can't go back, it is not possible.  You will just have to live with and make the best of iOS 7 or go out and buy a new phone, but you cannot downgrade.

    As required before updating to iso7,,, do an update and synchronise of all apps. I carried out the Return to iso6 by RESTORING you iPhone to factory restore option. Putting the iPhone back to iso6. Then RESTORE your BACKUP. All done - Google is your friend.

    Axeman1020,

    I have been searching all the discussions to find a viable work around, but nothing will replace the functionality as it was in ios6.

    Your suggestion does not work since my kids have there own Primary iCloud account for photostream, game center.

    I just want to have a secondary account for Find My iPhone so I can quickly access them without fumbling through lastpass to cut and paste account and password information for each individual iphone.

     

    I am not jumping ship because of a few changes that I don't like, but this is one of the worst affects of ios7 for me.

     

    Calendars is probably the 2nd worst change.

    Find My Phone was designed primarily for emergency type situations.

    Have you checked out the Find Friends app?
