    Most certainly not. I never suggested that at all.

    If you read the thread, that post was made in reference to someone complaining about the "look" of iOS 7 being like android. That can certainly be discerned from photos.


    If you are having a problem, start a new discussion. Maybe we can help.

    The only way to make the change is to grab Apple's attention via feedback page and select Design/Ease of Use and write a polite reasonable email.


    This was the advise from Apple Support Staff as they have already a lot of unsatisfied customers calling in.



    Here's my email to them:


    Hello, I am disappointed with iOS 7. It has a lot of great new features, but it also has the same (I'm not exaggerating) amount of annoyances/bad UI approach. I would be willing describe and point out all annoyances and bad UI decisions compared to iOS 6.



    Please, listen to a reason and let us, owners of the devices, to downgrade to iOS 6. When you made Apple Maps, we had a possibility to use Google Maps. But to screw up on whole OS, that's the whole new level of failure...



    Just reply to me and I'll write long and informative email about what makes me dislike iOS 7.



    I tried to downgrade, but you guys, do such a wonderful job at keeping people "caged" "in your way"...



    For the first time since I owned iPhone 3GS, I regret having iPhone (iPhone 5 at the moment), well, regret because of being forced to be stuck with iOS 7.



    I even plan or at least think the next phone I'll buy – won't be an Apple product. Honestly. It will be sad to leave all my spent money on all those apps and start all over again with a new platform, but at least I expect to be happy with what I'll choose.

    Photos and videos were not adequate to what was the real life usage. All those thing were nice and cool, but in real world they started to be annoying and intervening with other apps. So, you just talk theoretical stuff, I talk from practice.

  • Axeman1020 Level 6 Level 6 (14,185 points)

    I am not quite sure you read the thread.Everyone seems to be taking the post out of context.

    As I stated before, to say that you hate iOS 7 because it looks like andriod is just ridiculous. I never suggested that you could accurately judge any OS from photos or videos.I was simply saying it wasn't going to look any differently install.


    I am not sure what things you think are nice and cool but now annoying? Parallax? Animations?


    I also talk practice as I am currently using iOS 7 and have helped several users overcome their struggles with iOS 7.


    So, if you have a question, create a new discussion and we will help anyway we can.

    However, if you would rather complain about iOS 7, this is not the place. This is a technical help forum.

    Dear Technical Help Forum,


    When will Apple be releasing a method to revert an iPhone 4s from iOS 7 to iOS 6?

  • Axeman1020 Level 6 Level 6 (14,185 points)

    That is not a technical question.

    Only Apple can answer that. We are not employees of nor spokes people for Apple.


    But judging from past history, never.

    So you may end up having to get used to it as this seems to be the direction Apple is choosing to move in or purchase a different brand.

  • cabavyras Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Ok, I might interpreted your post in my own way, as you are correct – I didn't fully read all thread here.


    Regarding annoyance, I'll give you one example – Control center, See my video...



    This is one of many, believe me...

  • Axeman1020 Level 6 Level 6 (14,185 points)

    Try this:

    Settings > Control Center > toggle Access Within Apps on

  • cheonweb Level 4 Level 4 (3,445 points)

    Don't tap too low when you want to use the lower line of keyboard and swipe ALL THE WAY UP if you want the Control Center. Turn Access within app off if Control Center bothers you.

    its so sad that apple have shutdown the server for downgrade even if you have the file to restore your phone

  • cabavyras Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Thanks, that might be some sort of solution.    

  • cabavyras Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    You want me now to change the way I used to use my iPhone since 2009? **** now! I know how and where to tap, but sometimes you do like that and Then there are other apps that you would slide your fingers along the edges...

  • Axeman1020 Level 6 Level 6 (14,185 points)

    You're welcome. You can also disable access from the lock screen there too.


    If you have any more issues, start a new discussion. This one has gotten way off topic and is a complete utter mess to follow.

    You can look at all the pictures you want but until you use it yourself you can't really know, can you?  

    Which is why there were demo units available at all Apple Stores and most partner stores.

    Control Center is a change in iOS so you have to change the way you use your iPhone. If you don't like it, turn off within App access.
