    seeing ios 7 (especially in the ipad) work more like a beta than an apple product, you think that this Wednesday's version will be a compilation presenting superior to GM?

    All my iPad 2 issues were fixed with the GM. Only third party apps have been an issue...and even many of those have already been updated and are now working for me. :confused:

    I haven't heard of a ground breaking bugs so I am going to guess it will be the same as the GM.

    I don't really think so (but I hope they will) ...

    Doubt it as then the millions of 5C's and 5S's ready to ship would be temporarily obsolete.

    Touch over the top with the term "obsolete", Apple would simply need to issue a.1 update for devices running 7.0, these devices wouldn't stop working until this was issued. That said, I don't see it happening.

    Correct.
    Better to have simply stated Apple would be causing a bit of a logjam on release for those activating new iPhones along with those updating their iPhones.

    I guess the GM build is what we are getting later this month, but I think there will be a 7.0.1 release in very short time.

    My iPad 2 issues were mostly fixed. No more gestures killing the iPad. But when I close apps there is a dark background for a second before the correct one pops up. It's been a bug for awhile. I wonder if the iPad can handle the graphics...?

    That I could see happening. Millions of people suddenly using software will highlight any more bugs quite quickly.

    Would like to see a bit more optimisation for lower end devices such as my iPhone 4, but I'll be getting a 5s so they can do what they want with the 4. :D

    I don't think you know what "obsolete" means.

    Yes, there are bugs, nothing huge that would interefere with functionality, with the exception of support for playing .3ga audio files (Android voice files).

    Other bugs I have found are related to:
    - Adding a photo to a contact
    - AppStore app launcehd from another app; sometimes, you can't go back to the previous screen.
    - Mail app: when searching there's no longer a way to choose to search by field (From, To, Subject, All)
    - Podcast App: not supporting .m4b files (to show embeeded images)
    - Music App: not showing all embeeded images in Audiobooks. No easy way to browse through chapters, etc. Alternative: Downcast

    there are other bugs that don't really affect me much, reason why I can't remember these now.
