    I have had the opportunity to compare 2 iphone 5s that both suffered horrendous download speeds when downloading large files on Dropbox. One was upgraded by its developer-owner to a "future" release, and its Dropbox download now flies. Verified a number of times. If I'm not allowed to post information like this, I apologise - not sure what the rules are...

    What does that mean? What is a 'future' release?

    Sorry - trying to be deliberately obtuse! I mean the next version of software for the phone, which developers are testing. I have a feeling we're not supposed to talk about these things, but not sure.

    don't be so scared. in any case what are they going to do? delete the post thats all.


    for insilence's benefit: future release means the next version of Ios, like Ios 7 for now

    Anything new guys on this topic?

    I don't know if it's just me, but now that I'm with iOS 7 this problem seems to be solved.


    I even put my wifi auth back to AES and it still works.

    Can someone else confirm that, please?

    Yes, as I reported during the ios 7 beta phase, Dropbox downloads now seem to be running well.
