The iOS 7 release date is here, and it has caused some headaches for Apple device owners looking to update their devices with the new operating system with iOS 7 download error and software update failed errors reported. Even so, The Epoch Times Sept. 18 report says that the new iOS 7 has plenty of rich new features for those who are actually able to download it today. Plus, the update is free for owners of the iPhone 4 or later and other Apple mobile device owners.
The iOS 7 release date will download to iPhone 4 and 5, iPad 2, iPad Mini, and the latest generation iPod Touch. Of course, many users are reporting a iOS 7 download error, or a iOS 7 software update failed, which is frustrating for users to say the least even if the update is available for free.
The entire iOS 7 software update is a 130MB package that can be downloaded via iTunes using a computer, or you can simply check your device, and download it via your Wi-Fi. Simply tap on the Settings menu under General, and select Software Update to attempt the download.
The biggest change reported from iOS 7 updates is swipes instead of taps to access key functions of your mobile Apple devices. There is also a Siri improvement, and her voice sounds more human, and she can even become a he if that is your preference.
All in all, despite the aggravation with iOS 7 download error possibilities, this free update is worth trying. It will refresh your device, and you will not have to shell out hundreds for a brand new one just yet. If you are not successful at downloading it today -- the actual iOS 7 release date --, try again later this week when fewer people will be downloading.
