1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    - Better [and more] radio controls for a variety of features

    Not sure what you mean by this.

    - Better LTE <==> 3G switching. Why the fuck does the iphone suck so hard at this? Go from 3G to LTE and all data fucks up until you go into airport mode, let it lose its old signal, and then pick up the LTE one

    I've not experienced a bug like this myself.

    - UI-wise: Different backgrounds for different screens on the phone

    Nope.

    - UI-wise: Font controls.

    You have control over font sizes and other tweaks to aid in readability. As far as I can tell, the user still cannot change the font type. I happen to like the default font they use, but if changing it is a big deal for you then I am afraid you are out of luck.

    - Safari: 8 tab max what the fuck is this, always fucking crashes for no reason, settings only available in the 'Settings' manager, when you close your 2nd to last tab (leaving you with 1) it automatically goes to 'browse' mode and you have to click 'open new tab' again-very UI ugly.

    Tested it last night on my iPhone and managed to open 20 tabs before I stopped. So it can handle at least 20, maybe more.

    A lot of people consider the unified "settings app" to be a positive feature of the iOS UI design. I like having one place to look instead of having to open individual apps to change things.

    I have no doubt that large amounts of media produced FUD about this are incoming, but it looks like 5S owners don't have to worry about anyone cutting off their fingers.

    Something tells me that the cost\benefit ratio of phone theft rules out mayhem.

    ios7 is worth it for control center alone. Finally being able to control airplane/wifi/bluetooth/DND from anywhere is soooooo nice. Can't imagine being without it.

    Yes, i'm glad they finally implemented a feature like this.

    I also love that the whole industry is now running some kind of "card view" for multi-tasking. WebOS was way ahead of its time with that one.

    One negative I have noticed is that it feels like my battery is not lasting as long after the update. Will be curious to see some actual tests of this once the update goes live.

    You should try doing "reset all settings" under general->reset

    Will this improve the battery somehow?

    Does iOS 7 allow you to delete newsstand?

    I think the reset actually fixed my battery issue. :)


    You can't delete any of the main apps, but you can now stick Newsstand away in a folder.

    You guys mind if we take all discussions from here to the apple discussion thread?

    Should be better to have a centralized thread that doesn't have a pre-defined date that renders it obsolete.

    For the first time, I've noticed the purple haze in photos taken by a 5. They were ones I took at DWFII's workshop, posted here.
