    Give the app devs some time! iOS 7 isn't even out yet (officially)

    They have had 3 months during the beta period to get apps working on iOS 7 actually. Yes, they've only had the last few days to submit iOS 7 optimised apps, but over the beta period many apps were updated so they at least ran decently on iOS 7. That is one of the points of the beta period.

    Surprised some have left it this late.

    Maybe they had it fixed internally. Who knows?

    As far as the public is concerned, if it's fixed before Wednesday, all is golden.

    So they worked on them in the last few months and they are about to/just submitted them. Apple takes a while to approve (especially with all the troubles itunes connect was having recently)

    The performance and animations are definitely a subjective matter, so it's good to hear people enjoying iOS:7 on their iPhone 4.

    Since doing a Reset All settings and enabling High Contrast mode I have had a really smooth experience.

    I actually prefer how iOS7 looks on the iPhone 4 :rolleyes: On newer devices it looks like Windows Vista;):apple:

    no AirDrop, (this is a hardware limitation)
    no parallax, no dynamic wallpapers
    no live filters with camera
    no panorama
    iOS 7 "layers" is effectively lost on iPhone 4 as there is little or no translucent effect...windows are black instead of translucent gray (notifications and such).
    I would expect iOS 7 on iPhone 4 to be laggy or slow, and may drain battery faster.

    Here are part of the notes from Apple's page on iOS 7 features:

    "Not all features are available on all devices.
    Panorama format is available on iPhone 4s or later and iPod touch (5th generation). Square and video formats and swipe to capture are available on iPhone 4 or later, iPad (3rd generation or later), iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation).
    Filters in Camera are available on iPhone 5 or later and iPod touch (5th generation). Filters in Photos are available on iPhone 4 or later, iPad (3rd generation or later), iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation).
    AirDrop is available on iPhone 5 or later, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation) and requires an iCloud account."

    So ipad 2 users don't get square and video formats and filters in photos? I feel sorry for them.

    I will try ios 7 final version

    I will try ios 7 final version on my iphone 4 and ipad 3. I hope it works well and smooth on my iphone 4. Can you tell me that does ios 7 eat up larger space of the phone's memory than the ios 6.?

    Interesting that above it says camera filters are on iPhone 5 and later.

    The feature is on 4s too and has been since beta 5.

    I'm assuming this refers to the 3 circle icon bottom right on the camera app that gives 9 live preview thumbnails of the filters as well as "none" in the centre?

    Yes they do. This somehow indicates Apple initially planned not to release it for iPad 2 at all because square, video and filters in photos are available.

    "Filters in Camera are available on iPhone 5 or later and iPod touch (5th generation). Filters in Photos are available on iPhone 4 or later, iPad (3rd generation or later), iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation)."

    yes, the "Filters in Camera" is live filters you can select before you take the photo (kind of like photobooth on mac). "Filters in Photos" filters available in edit mode after the photo has been taken.

    How are people finding opening the camera from the lock screen? There are times where it doesn't register my swipe, or only goes so far then bounces back down for me. Might need to change my screen protector though.

    I can confirm that 100% and I do not use a screen protector! I am sure it is a side-effect of the "laggy" springboard. Reading all the comments here and experiencing a rather laggy iPhone 4 with iOS 7 GM I am pretty sure now that the lag comes from my backup i.e. from the way data is stored or something like that. I will set up my Phone once again and try to use it before restoring my backup and if it runs smooth I will have to customize it all over again manually. Keeping an eye on this thread.

    This was one of the issues which made me switch back to 6.1.3. Camera swipe was very slow to respond for me.

    I've been noticing some bugs here and there on iPhone 4 (don't know if it happens with the other devices) but sometimes, the touch it's just too damn sensible. For example, when I want to insert an emoji and I swipe to choose the icons, it's frequent that I end up adding the emoji icons without even want to. I end up deleting 15 to just add 1...
    That is very very annoying. Hope they will fix this.

    What about "Frequent Locations" on the iPhone 4?

    In iOS:6.1.3, I found opening the Emoji panel would freeze the keyboard for a few seconds until the Emoji's would load. In iOS:7 it loads up almost instantly. But I can't comment on the sensitivity part.

    I don't think the iPhone 4 for Frequent Locations.

    Watchthisspace: It might be worth changing the thread title to lose the GM. Equally valid.

    So everyone else seems to be seeing this heavy stutter on entering and exiting apps too? Other than that everything else isn't terrible, but hopefully this is just the "slow springboard".

    I have asked a moderator to rename it :) Cheers for point thing that out.


    Some apps have been as described, others not so bad. Hopefully when apps are updated to support iOS:7, these issues will mitigate.
