    Surely there must be some way to dump this piece of nonsense apple pretends is a professional production. This piece of junk has ruined my well working iphone. Did they deliberately destroy all the 4s models so everyone would have no choice but to buy a 5?

    Yes it seems that ios 7 has destroyed my perfectly good working and looked after iphone too. Now it just looks as if it is charging when plugged in. In reality the juice has slowly left it and now it wont charge or power up. I cant beleive there is nothing I can do about it. Sony or Samsung in future unless I get some joy from Apple!

    Whether is it possible or not is something that cannot be discussed here.

    Apple has never supported downgrading of iOS on any iDevice.

     

    Basic troubleshooting from the User's Guide is reset, restart, restore (first from backup then as new).  Try each of these in order until the issue is resolved.

    Hi,

     

    I would love to be able to restart, reset or restore but my phne is completely dead now. No power, no indication of charging, no connection when plugged in etc. The only option I have is to open the phone and replace the battery with one from another phone or a new one. Of course that would invalidate any  warranty or support that I had hoped a global business like Apple would naturally offer, particularly as the fault occurred immediately following the IOS 7 upgrade. Prior to that, the phone was in perfect condition.

     

    APPLE! I am lost without my phone! The lesson here really is not to rely on or put all your eggs in the apple basket. I will consider other manufacturers unless a resolution is forthcoming - and fast.

    No, that's by no means the only option. 

     

    If the device is not responding, plug it into a wall outlet and allow it to charge for at least 20 minutes.  Then try a reset.

     

    If that does not work, simply take the device to Apple for evaluation and possible replacement.

     

     

    And while you're at it... lay off the drama.  Apple neither reads or responds to postings here and frankly it only serves to make you look childish to your fellow users.

    Am I allowed to call you a muppet on here?

     

    You must be right up your own **** to add the last paragraph. Perhaps you may like to take some of your own advice and stop looking childish.

    Has anyone been able to figure out how to uninstall ios 7? Or is it not an option?

    Give me a break that he "should lay off the drama". They create a piece of crap software that for no legitimte reason they force you to use, which makes a perfectly good phone unusable. Its bs.

    I love apple apologists like you who just mindlessly defend all things Apple.

    Muppet

    Nobody forced you to use iOS 7. My husband has not downloaded it yet - because he is waiting for the kinks to be ironed out. I downloaded it - voluntarily.

     

    I'm still running on iOS 5 on my iPad 1, and it works with with all my applications just fine, so, in theory, all of my devices could still be running iOS 5, and everything would be just peachy.

     

    The absurd need for people to want the latest and greatest, and to be the first in line to get it is the problem here. No one forced anyone to download the new iOS the first week it was out. If your phone and it's asethetics are so critical to your happiness and sense of well-being in your daily life, then it would behoove you to do a little research before committing to something that potentially changes the way it looks and works.

     

    There are far greater tragedies in this world - we are a spoiled and childish society if we are not able to put this in a little better perspective than "iOS 7 has ruined my life". Get a grip people....

    I found this thread on Google and looked at it beacause I need to remove IOS 7 from my iPad - I haven't been able to discover whether I like the changes as the new text and symbols are too faint for me to see even with a strong magnifying glass. If all exchanges are like this one I won't bother again.

    Rosiland,

     

    Have you tried changing the font to Bold Text and to Large font?

     

    Cheers,
