I have an iPhone 4S that's still on iOS6 - I've heard that the performance of iOS8 on the 4S isn't great, is there anyway for me to update to iOS7 instead?

Thanks in advance.

Can I ask why on earth you'd want to upgrade to iOS 7 if your running 6? The 4S will run iOS 6 very, very well. The 4S ran iOS 7 like crap, except 7.1.2 (which isn't available anymore). And even 7.1.2 could have been miles better.

Keep it on 6. Besides the look of 6 is much better, IMO.

^^^This.

If there was some miracle that allowed me to downgrade from this PlaySkool/Fisher Price inspired color fruit cake iOS 7.1.2 back to iOS 6 I'd take it in a hearbeat.

Thanks everyone.
The only reason I was really considering updating was because there were a couple of apps I'd wanted to download that weren't available on iOS6 - I don't want them badly enough to deal with any problems iOS8 might cause on a 4S though when iOS6 does just fine!

Thanks again for your replies.

Nobody's reverse-engineered signing yet, and I believe that it's extremely difficult. There is unlikely to be a way to install iOS 7 within your phone's useful lifetime.
