    And, keep in mind that a significant percentage of the "vocal minority" include hard core forum trolls (who don't necessarily use iPhones) and paid shills.

     

    The forum hosts will let particular threads about controversial new features (Maps last year) alone with little moderating.  Best to let them rant on and on to each other.  While there are some legitimate issues for the visually impaired, most of it appears scripted.

    Seriously for those who hate IOS 7 so much.......PLEASE just switich to other phones then. I'm sure Apple will not miss you.

     

    I thought these support discussions were to help answer issues and questions from subject-matter experts??

     

    Who said that was the only purpose?

     

    People who have chosen to install (or allowed their device to install) iOS7 and who either dislike it or can't use it are entitled to complain. You may disagree, but you have no right to tell others that their opinions/problems don't matter. If you don't like the tone of this thread, why contribute to it?

     

    Whether you like it or not, the overall reception/perception of iOS7 is not great, and is significantly worse than any other iOS upgrade (if that's the right word in this particular case).

     

    Let's be honest; Apple have dropped the ball big time with this upgrade, and stand to lose a LOT of customers if they don't sort it out. So, if the 28% of customers who are dissatisfied switch to another phone, as you suggest, that's a big black eye for Apple. Not a great move on Apple's part one might argue...

    Really? Can you provide a link showing the overall perception is such? Or is that just your opinion which you so gleefully announce?

     

    I guess you've never had the pleasure of doing an Android upgrade.

    I agree, the new insipid IOS 7 displays are ghastly.  Difficult to say which display is worse, the calendar or clock, I can scarcely read either. And why on earth chose white writing on blue background for texts, may as well go the whole hog and make the text blue too. I presume IOS 7 was sponsored by Specsavers. 

     

    The new Safari "search for text on this page" is a step backwards, Siri keeps telling me he's unavailable, try later and the screen rotation on my iPad 4 keeps locking. I think IOS 7 is appalling so why can't I revert to IOS6?

     

    I bought an iPhone 4 the day they were released so I can't make phone calls unless my phone is inside an ugly case. Apple provided the first one for free but I had to pay for the two subsequent ones myself.

     

    I liked the advice on the forum telling the complainant to buy a new phone, that's what I'm about to do. I've already given the thumbs down to the iPhone 5S so it looks like a Samsung Galaxy.  When's IOS 8 going to be released? Perhaps I'd better start looking for a replacement for my iPad too.

    They do have a right to complain.  That's their First Amendment right.

    However, this forum has specific rules that make it clear that this forum is for TECHNICAL assistance.  The First Amendment doesn't extend to private property.  This forum is private property, and the owners have the right to set certain limits.

     

    The overall perception of iOS 7 is that it needs improvements, and most customers are expressing overall satisfaction, but looking forward to improvements. 

     

    You're seeing only a very, very small percentage of Apple's users on this site.  The actual customer feedback, nationally & globally, is much better.

     

    An unhappy customer is 10-15 times more likely to voice their opinion than a happy customer.  When was the last time that you gave positive feedback to a service provider?  If your internet works perfectly for three months with no interruptions, do you call up the ISP and say, "Thank You"?  If your order is correct at the drive-thru, do you call the store later and thank the manager?

     

    Just because you are seeing 'many' complaints here doesn't mean that represents the overall customer base.  This is just, again, a vocal minority.

     

    Finally, Apple provides a method of feedback for your 'opinions'.

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/

     

    Use that, instead of cluttering up the technical assistance forum with griping & whining.

    Why can't you downgrade?  Because that's Apple's policy.  Period.  End of discussion.

     

    Apple provided you a free case, but you had to buy the second & third ones?  How many free cases do you need?

     

    Please, go buy a new phone.  That will solve all of your problems, I promise.

    Well, actually those who have been moaning and groaning how much they hate IOS 7 are insisting that eveyone else hates it too.

     

    Everyone's opinions matter, but for the past 2-3 days all I have been reading are lovers and haters of IOS 7 going at each other.....with no productivity whatsoever.

    JQ1976 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Thank you. I totally agree. Apple gave a free case or bumper to all iPhone 4 users. No one pulled anyone's leg to go and buy a second, third, or even fourth case.

    And all that complaining does is distract those of us (like yourself, modular) that are here to help other users with legitimate problems.

     

    All these complainers are doing is hurting other users by cluttering up the forum with pointless complain threads.

    The 10 commandments were written in stone and can't be changed. Period, end of discussion.

    Policies, on the other hand, are affected by the market. If enough pressure is exerted, policies change. Discussion continues.

    Had my iPhone 4 been correctly designed, I wouldn't have needed a bloody case in the first place and cases don't last as long as iPhones.

    I'm out of my two year contract, I got a cheap monthly renewal eagerly awaiting the new iPhone only to be disappointed. Aren't I lucky, had the iPhone 6 had been released, I'd now either be stuck with an out of date operating system or the appalling IOS7. I can now vote with my feet against IOS7.

    It was irrefutably proven than you had to bridge the antenna gap with a good deal of effort ("death grip") to cause this problem and even a gibbon could learn to hold the phone without losing signal and needing a case.  I guess you never figured it out.

    I loved my iPhone 3 so purchased the iPhone 4 on the day they were released.

    ********, if I touched  the metallic trim while making a call, the signal was lost. I could hold the phone between thumb and forefinger looking a right Wally (or a cool dude if surrounded by Apple geeks - it's a design feature you know!). How did Apple rectify this bug on the earliest models: a product recall perhaps? No, they gave me a free case.

    Fool me once, shame on you.

     

    I'm the wrong side of 65 and can scarcely make out the new IOS 7 calendar, time or message displays on my iPad4.

    Fool me twice, shame on me.

     

    I love the juvenile feedback in support of Apple against anyone daring to register a complaint. Why not take up fox hunting so you can really defend the indefensible.
