    Apple is quite often right.

    Apple WAS quite often right. Jobs was right. But now I see people who was geniuses when they was under Jobs' control now are talentless, they don't understand what they are doing and have very poor aesthetic sense

    "I don't like this" is not the same thing as "The people who made it are talentless." And, I have to side with Ives on this one.

    I agree that it would be good to allow the user to configure the display to look like the iOS6 and earlier.  The visibility and appearance of text in a number of places is frankly hard to read at times.  I have "increased the contrast" and switched on "bold text" to help make it more readible - especially in bright light.  Grayish text on white was a terrible idea.  I liked the look and appearance of the previous calendar and mail presentations.  Even Windows offers users the option of defaulting to the CLASSIC view.

    I'm with Meg St_Clair. I AM enjoying iOS 7. The illusion of 3D is incredible!!!!

    The problem is that the 3D and animated effects - even with the parallax motion turned off - are sufficient to provoke headaches and nausea in a significant fraction of the population.  Migraine and motions sickness are strongly associated, so anyone who is a migraineur is basically risking a headache and/or vertigo +/- nausea by using iOS 7.  From what I've been reading (and directly experiencing, although I myself am not a migraineur), many, many users are reporting headache, eye strain, nausea, and/or vertigo with iOS 7.

     

    Those Tea Party/libertarian types here are correct in that it's Apple's prerogative to release whatever product it wants to, and even to force unwanted changes on its customers.  However, the idea that anyone who isn't a lawyer, or doesn't have OCD, would read all of those release notes and Terms of Service is facile and foolish on the face of it - most of us are just plain old users, who want our device to work when we need it to; and when the little "Update" icon comes on, we click it so it goes away.  End of story.

     

    Likewise for the tech heads here, who can't seem to grasp that many of us are far too busy to be speding our time pouring over c|net, eagerly anticipating every random, irregular, new change to our devices - which we prefer working the way they are right now and have been reliably for quite a while, thank you.  For those of us who don't work in the tech sector, we just want the damned thing to work and to be comfortable, or at least not uncomfortable.  Apple has summarily taken the latter away for many, many users.  To not give the option back to its users to disable FULLY the changes to the UI, or preferably to keep it the way it was, is arrogance, and will only help RIM and Droid's market shares.  Even the fiscal libertarians can't reasonably argue with that conclusion.  As another poster put it, not all of us want to "belong to the church."  We just want a phone (or iPad) that works for us and meets our needs.

     

    Steve Jobs may have subtly forced the public in the direction he wated it to go, but he didn't elevate ADHD to a glorified "lifestyle choice."  He was careful, methodical, and thorough.  iOS 7 is none of these.

    So, now it's politics and religion? Get over yourself.

     

    If you're too "busy" to take the time to research, don't blame Apple. That's on you.

    Can you point me to the part in Apple's terms & conditions where it says my battery usage time will take a 40% hit and that my eyes will be strained by using iOS7?

    Thanks.

    No, it's neurology.  The motion features, icons, and fonts are causing neurological symptoms in a significant fraction of iOS 7 users.  This appears to be a failure of appropriate pre-release research, and now either denial or stubbornness, on Apple's part.

     

    The politics was in response to earlier posts citing caveat emptor.  The "religion" was in response to (much) earlier posts in this thread intimating that not all of us have drunk the Kool-Aid and want to belong to the "Church of Apple," questioning nothing they do.

    Caveat Emptor is a legal principle. It has nothing to do with a political party.

     

    The only quasi-religious references I seem to be seeing are those referring to Steve Jobs, and how he must be turning over in his grave. He wasn't a god.

     

    As to battery life, there are numerous posts on this issue. Many have solved theirs. There have been battery complaints at the release of every iOS uprade.

     

    As to eye strain, there are numerous complaints about this as well. You can turn the animations off. You can set brightness. You can bold fonts. That's why they put them in as options. They will no doubt come up with more options, as the new OS is further evaluated by users, and feedback is received.

    With previous iOS updates, a clean install fixes any non-widespread issues 100%.

    I have done FOUR clean installs, setting up as a new phone every time and I have EVERY high drain setting switched off. So in my eyes there is nothing that can be done at my end to fix the phone. Period.

    "As to eye strain, there are numerous complaints about this as well. You can turn the animations off. You can set brightness. You can bold fonts. That's why they put them in as options."

     

    I found all those controls and increased contrast, bolded the fonts, turned down the brightness.  I cannot turn off the animations but I can reduce them, which improves things some.  I've also given Apple some feedback suggesting they introduce a toned-down color pallate for those of us who don't like the stark white background of their apps (similar to "sepia" in iBooks, maybe)?

     

    Like many others, I appreciate the improvement in functionality in the new iOS but find the neon/pastelle color scheme hard on the eyes, even with the brightness toned down.
