    *Wi-Fi always connected when your out and about without logging in.

    *Change the voice on Siri from male to female. Possible but only via languages like IOS6.

    *Flat IOS7 design for Ibooks.

    *Putting folders on the bottom bar (not possible from what I found).

    *Automatic app updating again not found a way yet of doing this.

    I will add more to the list later.

    This was never promised nor mentioned at all.

    False. Settings > General > Siri > Voice Gender

    Never promised nor mentioned at all.

    This is completely possible.

    Settings > iTunes & App Store

    Are you even using an iOS device?

    False. Settings > General > Siri > Voice Gender **Does not exist on the UK version of IOS7 it's not on any Ipad or Iphone I've used.

    Ibooks was demo'd at WWDC with a flat look.

    Folders won't go on the bottom if you don't make the folder above first what I mean is they won't drag from the top to the bottom bar.

    Should change title to "I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm going to blame Apple."

    So, wouldn't the solution be to make the folder above first, then move to the dock

    They never said it's for every country.

    That's an app, not an iOS 7 feature. The update will be out soon.

    They never specifically said you can make folders inside the dock.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    ----------

    Naw that's too hard he needs to make folders in the cramped dock trust me it's an important enterprise feature

    You didn't specify that you were in the UK. They are US specific.

    No it wasn't. Only on the Mac was it demoed.

    You have to have a clear spot in the dock and drag the folder there. They didn't announce or mention any other way of doing this.

    Fair enough about the Siri thing but I mean you can still change the voice but just wondered why it was country dependant?

    Actually he did, it's in his name info. Everything else was bollocks, though.

    I have folders on the bottom bar as I speak.

    Ten demerits and a time-out under your bridge.

    Because the regional voices haven't been updated to new high quality voices yet. Not sure why this is so hard to understand.

    Maybe it has to do with accents or word pronunciations which they didn't get sorted out yet.

    Siri: Settings > general > Siri > Voice Gender

    Folders: You've been able to put folders on the dock since iOS 6.

    Automatic updates: settings > iTunes & App Store > automatic updates.


    Tell us honesty, did you even TRY to look for these things?

    The bigger point as far as iBooks is concerned (or even other non-stock Apple apps) is that it's not part of the stock iOS apps--it doesn't come with the OS itself--it's a separate app that is updated separately. So, any redesign of it won't be attached to an OS update, it will have to come seperately like any other app update. Which means that at the very least this part of it all isn't even iOS 7 related at all (just a separate app update that needs to come at some point).

    Apple isn't finished yet... They are going to update more things in the near future, especially at the iPad event. Updates are coming for the official Apple apps.

    No, he's correct in saying that iBooks was demoed.

    However, OP, iBooks is a separate app. It's not a part of iOS 7 and therefore was not updated /with/ iOS 7. It's its own entity and will be updated through the App Store when ever Apple decides to release it. (Who knows when that'll be :p)
