Do not download the new iOS 7 . . . well, at least not just yet.
Not that there is anything majorly wrong with it.
There is always going to be some small bug or problem that needs to be fixed. And if …
you are an early taker of new software, you will be the person finding out about that bug.
Usually the hard way!
So I always say, let somebody else find and report the bugs and get them fixed first.
Case in point – the new Apple iPhone software already has a bug identified only hours after it’s been launched.
Users booting up their newly released iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c on Friday will be prompted to install a minor operating system update, intended to squash a few minor bugs Apple discovered with its latest handsets.
So do not be too quick to rush in with new software updates.
Wait a few days and then Google for details on the updates. You will surely find reports of how it is going.
You will need some time
The other reason not to get into downloading the new iOS 7 is that you will need a lot of time to:
- download it and
- familiarise yourself with it
Allow several hours for the software download, (depending on your download speed), which means several hours that you are not able to use your iPhone.
So if you casually hit update during a workday, prepare to stop work.
And make sure to do it on your home or office wi-fi because it will chew up a lot of your mobile data allocation.
The second delay . . .
becoming sufficiently familiar with the new software to use it
The look and feel of the new software is totally different to earlier versions, and some functionality has changed.
It’s a bit like driving a right hand drive vehicle for the first time after you’ve spent your life driving a left hand drive.
Certainly not impossible, but it takes a bit of getting used to.
Having said that, there are some great new features in the software update.
Here are the Top 10 features in Apple iOS 7
Whatever you do, I hope that you enjoy using the new software.
Well, that is quite simple really!
