    iPad 3 here and I'm still running iOS 6. I was always afraid to upgrade since apple forces you to stay updated once you do it.

    Anyone else sticking with iOS 6?

    Me!
    Sticking with iOS 6, not for fear.

    The aesthetics of iOS 7 and beyond are just disgusting. :mad:
    So not :apple:!
    And Yosemite suffers the same fate. :(

    I disagree. iOS 7, 8 and Yosemite are very Apple.

    but you know what, you can keep your opinion and your old software and enjoy. Enjoy the lack of bug fixes, of new features etc.

    I held out for a long time. Waited for a lot of the initial bugs and complaints to die down and then switched over. I would've stayed with ios6 forever on this phone but there were some apps that I use frequently that no longer supported ios6 so I was somewhat forced to make the switch. Must say, I was very used to and comfortable with 6, but I really like 7.

    There were just too many features and improvements in iOS 7 to not upgrade. Even though 7.1 greatly improved the snappiness of iOS 7, I will say iOS 6 and lower still feel faster in terms of how the animations move.

    The, "Original iPad on iOS6 or previous" is an interesting option.

    A fair choice given what iOS 7 did to the iPhone 4. I think a later update made it at least tolerable.. but by that time I'd given up and bought a 5S, which I can't say I'm too bothered about :cool:

    What does "since Apple forces you to stay updated once you do it" mean exactly? What is it that Apple does once you update to iOS 7?

    If you upgrade to iOS 7 there is no way to revert. Unless I'm wrong or things have changed.

    Ah, yes, in that sense, that's correct.

    7.1.2 runs smooth as silk on the iPad 3. No issues as far as I know.

    If Apple offers an upgrade to the latest version of it's OS, I'll take it - no matter what changes it brings. I like to stay current.

    Went to iOS 7 the day it was released and I loved it. I'll also be going to iOS 8 the day it is released. I like to have the most up to date software when released. Apple has never disappointed me with the x.0 updates, always stable enough for daily use, with near perfection within 2 months.

    In the case of iOS 7 it was closer to half a year after when iOS 7.1 was finally released.

    I don't feel that it took until 7.1 to become stable, for me 7.0.4 was quite stable. 7.1 helped further the stability, but 7.0.4 really helped bring it to near perfection for me.

    When ios 7 came out, people on the ipad 3 said it was very choppy. I have since avoided it at all costs. ios 6 runs great on it and I really hate that apple forces you to stay upgraded once you decide to do it.

    My grandma was very afraid, then my aunt upgraded her phone to iOS 7 without asking or telling her. WTF? So now she's confused. She asked me for the first time what to do when the Phone app freezes. :confused:

    There's a good reason my iPhone 5 is jailbroken. It runs iOS 7, so I have no choice but to use an iOS 6 Winterboard theme. OK, there are other reasons too.

    I don't think it's really fear but they just don't like it.

    But my question to those people is what happens when your device kicks the bucket, can no longer run like you want, or your apps require iOS 7 or newer? This is the new design choice Apple has made and they are sticking to it, so it's probably adopt or move to a different platform.
