Apple released the iOS 7 update Wednesday, and ever since some users have had a lot of issues when trying to download the update to their devices. Not only are many users having trouble downloading the iOS 7 update, they're having trouble activating the download as well, according to WebProNews on Sept. 20.
It's understandable, and even expected, that there will be some glitches with any Apple update, but this time the iOS 7 update is causing users to spend hours trying to update their devices.
One critic commented that if Apple is trying to get their iPhone users to smash their old devices in a fit of anger so they’ll buy the new iPhone 5S, "then well played, Apple, well played".
Otherwise, the company is off to a rough start with the operating system that was designed to compete with the Android.
And it's not just slow download times. Another big problem being talked about with the iOS 7 update is the download errors.
So far Apple had been mum on all of the iOS 7 download problems, but an update for the update will hopefully be on the horizon soon.
It must be said that not all users have encountered problems. However, some of the tweets in cyberland highlight some of the typical troubles.
"iOS 7 is taking longer to download than the Cubs World Series drought", wrote @basebalTweets. And @Ostimusic tweeted, "At this rate, it would be faster to buy a new iPhone on Friday than wait for my current phone to download iOS 7. Is that Apple's evil plan?"
Once users do eventually successfully update their devices to iOS 7 though, the new operating system does have some pretty cool updates.
In addition to flatter and more simplistic icons, the camera settings are improved. AirDrop for iOS, smarter multitasking and a Control Center were added making the iPhone experience easier.
