    YES!! Apple did the right thing. Way to go!! Too bad most of the phones are not auto-updating to this, and still running 7.0 :mad:

    Please, let it be less sluggish on iPhone 4, please, let it be less sluggish... You can leave that revolting icons for now, but please, let there be some speed optimizations...

    Miles ahead of Android because they rolled out a bug fix to a bug that seems to happen every time they roll out a new IOS version? How about make sure there are no lockscreen passcode bypass bugs next time. That would be impressive.

    How about putting the lightning bolt BACK into the battery icon so we don't have to look so hard to see that it's charging? I can only imagine the debates on moving it....

    that was pretty quick compared to last years first .x release that took till november.

    if we are really getting iOS 7.1 for the ipads next month shouldnt we see a beta soon?

    You will probably be out of luck....word on the street is to NOT add iOS7 to the 4, and perhaps not the 4S. Time to step up to a 5S!

    BTW, the update is not showing up on the east coast....any luck out there?
