What's your LEAST favorite feature in iOS 7?
at times since the folders it seems match the background, its hard to read folder names imo.
Parallax is nothing but a waste of CPU performance IMO
You can turn it of easily, so it shouldn't be an issue.
Automatic app updating. I will immediately turn it off.
out of curiosity, why? I have been running the GM release of it and I love not seeing updates being needed to be done but if I open up the app store I get a review of everything that was updated. Pretty slick.
Worried about battery life? Not knocking your choice at all just curious.
More than once an app update has completely broken a critical app I use.
I don't update critical apps right away for this reason. Once I hear that the new version works great, I update.
The app dock on my iPad 3. It just looks primitive IMHO. Looks fine on my iPhone 5, but that and very poor wallpaper handling have pushed me back to IOS 6 on the iPad. (7 is great on the iPhone)
Don't hate, this is just my own opinion. Here's to hoping for improvement in these areas in future updates...
It's not really a feature, but more of a removal.
I hate how they took about the "search the web" option in spotlight. Considering that now to search spotlight you just drag down, i'm using spotlight more and more often, and being able to search the web from spotlight but be even more useful.
that makes total sense. gotcha.
I like the fact I can have multiple pages in a folder, but dislike the fact that each page only holds 9 apps.
Compared with a standard iOS6 device I think 7 is pretty good, although it could be snappier. Compared with a JB decide, Apple is still short of the mark. Multitasking is still poor (I want to be able to close all running apps with a single command) and the control centre needs some customisable options (I like to forward my mobile so a quick switch is useful). Configuring settings by location should also be something Apple include. When I'm connected to my local network I don't want to have to unlock every 5 minutes.
Sorry, just realised that's more than 1
Is the animation speed conisidered a feature? Otherwise the Background App Refresh: it drains my phone battery too much to use it.
Umm, yeah, I knew that, but it's still my least favorite feature.
the calendar feature
It's completely unacceptable that only 9 apps are displayed inside a folder in a 9.7" iPad!!
That's my least favorite feature. I'd rather have a folder that can only have 20 apps that are all displayed at once over a unlimited folder but show you only 9 apps at once.
iOS 7 as a whole seems to be less optimized for iPad than before. Notification Center takes full screen, Siri takes full screen as well. Maps, Calendar, and GameCenter look totally blown up on iPad (something they mocked Android for!), multitasking shows 3 apps at most, which is ridiculous on a big device like the iPad.
iOS 7 on the iPad needs a rethink. iOS on iPhone is completely fine, and I'd recommend all to install it on their phones.
This is why I am nervous about installing iOS 7 on my iPad. I love it on the iPhone but what you are listing above is stuff that would really annoy me.
Here is to hoping now that the iPhone version is good, put focus on iPad and get an update, a real GM, mind you in a few weeks. Wishful thinking I know...
iPad 2, 3 look horrible with iOS 7. No blur effects, and sluggish performance generally. iPad Mini and iPad 4 have all the effects, but I'm still not happy about the lack of optimization. Yes, like you, it's really annoying me too. The leather was bad in the calendar app on iOS 6, but at least it was a good app. Whereas the new calendar app for iPad on iOS 7 is just a bad app generally. Notification Center looks completely blown up with so much wasted space.
I'm afraid this lack of optimization could lead to developers also being careless and give us iPhone apps blown up.
However, the iPhone version of iOS 7 is a completely different story. The new look depends on taste, but all the other features are nicely set up.
I really dislike iOS 7 as a whole on iPad 3 because all the blur effects are gone and it just doesnt feel optimized for the larger screen. Its really nice to look at but they should have done something different on the iPad than the iPhone version. I loved the blur effects on the iPad 3 during the betas. It's one of those things that you don't miss until its gone.
Also, there is a major lag issue on the iPad 3. Setting wallpaper takes way to long, feels like its frozen.
I installed the GM yesterday and removed it today.
I hope to come back to iOS 7 on the iPad when they release an update to stabilise it because I need the stability if I'm doing some work on my iPad.
Parallax and Spotlight re-design.
I really have faith in Apple that they will get the iPad version sorted out quickly and not pull an Android and just blow up iOS apps....hoping anyway.
I think the folders as well. It was hard to find anything in there before and now it's impossible.
I hate the new music app.
Unnecessary addition of artist pictures/album art made it so you can only view 4 items at a time on an iPhone 5
Artist pictures only appear for some of my artists, the rest use album art, which makes it look sloppy in my opinion
You can no longer play a single album from artist view/it shows every album and song listed chronologically
Album view is inconsistent between iPad and iPhone/iPod. On the iPad, it lists albums alphabetically first by artist name, then by album name. On the iPhone/iPod, it lists albums alphabetically by album name only
The new horizontal grid view doesn't automatically show what's now playing
There's more, but those are my biggest gripes
Parallax and the new Notification Center. Seeing notifications should be a mindless, quick swipe down. Now there's three tabs, two of debatable importance.
I am fine with updating the apps myself also. I get to see what is new and whether I want it or not.
The crippled notification centre compared to ios 6
