    I just upgraded my Retina IPAD 3 to IOS7 and for my uses have turned it into a brick!

    The video on ALL sources has gone from HD quality....to a blurred mess. Looking on the net it seems that Apple will NOT allow me to go back to IOS 6.

    Anybody knows the reason for this??

    Possibly ;

    To push as many users into the latest iOS availabke for their device.

    Security updates inserted to safe guard.

    Keep jail breaking teams on their toes (maybe)

    I have no direct knowledge. I think this is done to slow down our devices so we purchase new.

    The logical answer would be to get us to upgrade of course. $$$$
