    I have to fight the urge to go back to iOS 6.

    You can't go back to iOS 6, Apple stopped signing it. Does that make it easier?

    Since Apple is no longer signing iOS6, your urge to go to 6 won't get you iOS6 any more than masturbation will get you sex.

    Your only option is to buy a phone with 6 on it.

    You can always wait for the jailbreak to come out, then you will be able to customise the look more, I think you'll be able to get rid of the animations for example.

    That's why I fought the urge to upgrade and I won. I'll wait for iOS 7 to mature a bit between now and the time the new iPads are released.

    Yeah jail breaking slowly died out. I think those jailbreak teams said they wouldn't work with iOS 7.

    What's worse is that no one knew what iOS 7 looked and functioned like prior to its release so I can totally see how the OP was taken by surprise. /sarcasm

    I fought the urge and lost... but fortunately was able to get 6 back on my devices before Apple stopped signing. Close call to be sure.

    I don't care that much it's just a little inconvenient. Wish there was more perks to having iOS 7.

    What's funny about that to me is... if you go and read over some of the 7 beta threads, folks were concerned with the look and feel of the OS, particularly the icons. Lots of folks pretty much said that "hey, the OS is beta, Apple will polish that up soon enough" - those same folks are now defending the flat, drab, teletubbie-looking OS...

    I'd be interest in your posting enough examples of that happening for it not to be considered an anomaly. Unless you're just making it up.

    Not caring that much is very different from having to fight the urge.

    You might be exaggerating. Some people may also have grown to like the new style.

    :D

    I'll get the iPad 5 or mini retina when they are released and try iOS 7 at that time. I'll have 14 days to try it. If I don't like it i'll send it back. Hopefully Apple can polish and fine tune iOS 7 before the new iPads are released.

    ----------

    I had a real good idea what it looked like which is why I decided to stay on iOS 6 until I have enough reason that the upgrade is an improvement on what I already have.

    There was a small window where you could downgrade to ios6 but I think that is over now. I did so on my iPhone 4. Got the os from here and did a restore:

    http://www.icj.me/ios

    That site tracks which updates are still approved by Apple, but now it seems only ios7 is approved.

    You couldn't be more wrong. If anything jailbreaking has grown. The Evad3rs have even tweeted about working on iOS 7 and have said they have really high hopes that it'll be crackable.

    Believe it or not, but not everyone reads Apple-related news. I spoke to some friends who barely knew anything about the update, yet the device itself notifies the user of an available update. The update had no screenshots or showcase and only presented a feature list. I can imagine that the radical update caught people by surprise regardless.

    It's not like it's been all over Apple's site, YouTube, etc for months and as soon as it dropped the regular news outlet talked about it. But let's keep it about this thread. Do you honestly think someone who posts on MacRumors is a regular ignorant user who had never seen anything about iOS 7 and was completely surprised by it?

    I have my SHSH blobs saved...

    Very tempting to go back to iOS6 to be honest

    What device? Unless you're on a 4 or earlier SHSH blobs are useless.

    Yes. No way to revert now (unless you are jailbroken, last I heard).

    iOS 7 isn't jailbroken, so that doesn't really make any sense.

    There is no way unless you have an iPhone 4 or below, and had saved your blobs from 6.1.3.
