    Thx for the article. I half expected that Auria might be affected. Lucky for me I have no life because I work so much lately and can't record anyway. :( Yea!!! :(
    Amplitube seems fine after the update. I like the modeling in it a lot so back to only 8 tracks for now ......

    Did anyone check available storage, before and after the upgrade? Curious how much gets eaten up (I'm seeing where the download size is about 900 MB, but I doubt if you lose 900 MB forever, after the upgrade completes).

    The upgrade wanted 3.1 Gb of free space - hard to get on my 16 Gb 4S. I did the upgrade through iTunes, and it went fine.

    Nice features, like the call blocking. I have had some telemarketers find my number, so I add them to a Contact and block 'em.

    My wife pointed me to an article to set some obscure privacy settings, so I went ahead and made those changes as well.

    Google and Apple both seem to love to get into your business!

    I'm starting to get used to the new interface, and I'm liking it quite a bit. The one thing that I was not crazy about in iOS before was the extreme skeuomorphic design elements (torn paper edges at the top of the notes app), but it seems like they (Jonny Ive) went a little too far in the other direction in certain places, and flattened and oversimplified things too much.

    If you're curious about the reasons for the extreme interface changes, just Google "Jonathan Ive vs Scott Forstall", it's pretty interesting reading. Jonathan Ive has an incredible amount of power and influence at Apple now.

    I needed to free up 2.9 gigs of space to do the update; I had to dump Amplitube and Garage Band and a bunch of other apps. After the update was done, I had my 2.9 gigs of free space back.

    I didn't like the skeuomorphic design elements of old but spent the day in bright conditions and at times didn't like the thin characters.

    It's hard to read the time on lock screen without glasses compared to the older versions. I'm sticking with it because of a few great apps, it works well, and I like the 5 size more than my big Android phone.

    Anybody know of a way to have the calendar show all the events of the day in one view, instead of having to scroll through all the hours of the day?

    I do too. Of all the morphisms, it's my favorite.

    I never even knew what it was, until people started telling me it wasn't cool.

    I can't get bluetooth to work in my car for the phone. It will lay music but not make calls.

    I agree that the thin text is hard to read, I actually followed some advice earlier in this thread and turned on bold text in the accessibility section in settings and it helps quite a bit.

    I don't have a problem with skeuomorphics at all and they are still all over iOS 7. I just was not a big fan of how far they were pushed in older versions of iOS. Fake torn paper, leatherette textures, and tacky faux wood grain just seem kind of pointless to me.

    I'm guessing there will be updates in next couple of weeks for IAA fixes.

    My son just updated his 4s and it killed it. After he logs in it stays stuck on wifi setup and neither button does anything. He let the battery die, logged back on and it went back to the wifi setup again. We're stuck in an endless cycle with it and it was working before he did the upgrade

    Oh well, guess I'm sticking with iOS6 out of paranoia now. Who knew?

    So far since updating to 7, I have been randomly getting kicked out of Garageband. I also have the Vocalive app but sine updating it opens up for a second, then closes. Not sure what that's all about.

    My ebay ap is not working and it seems to drain my battery much faster. Anyone else?
