iOS7

Just upgraded the iphone to iOS7. Hanging off with the iPad until I check everything works.

AvPlan seems to be fine
DIAL-A-WIS opens but won't dial the number
NAIPS seems to be OK, but I haven't submitted a plan yet.
myE6B seems OK

Anyone else have any feedback?

iOS 7 seems fine to me. Apple have a good track record of quality new releases, much better than average.

OzRunways, NAIPS, AvPlan, AirNav Pro and V-Cockpit all run fine for me.

i Pad 2, i Pad with retina display and i Pad mini.
i Pod 5th Gen.

All available to update from 0300 EST this morning.

I too was "told" by my ipad (2) that it hadn't, and still hasn't been released (under the general, update tab)...

But once you plug it into it tunes, bam, problem solved!


Edit: Very sad to see that my two devices are the last on the list.. Next bout of updates will see my iPhone 4 and ipad 2 kicked to the curb (by apple).. Both work as new too!

Incorrect nitpicker330. Apple have not yet released iOS7 for the iPad. When they do, the devices you list will be supported, but for the meantime at least, it's a waiting game.

Whoops! Thanks fpvdude muy bad. That's what I get for loaning my Mac to my partner... In Germany!

There are now a heap of app updates, which I guess are in response to the ios7 upgrade.

A big change is the ring tone, which takes a while to get used to.

iOS7 for all compatible devices became available at 03:00 Eastern Standard Australian time this morning. You didn't need to plug it in. Just update via Wi Fi.

I did 2 i Phones and one i Pad 12 hours ago.

Also I've been getting App updates for days now in prep for the iOS update.

I installed it and I don't like it, looks like a kids phone.

Must be lots out there doing it as it took three hours to download.

Seems OzRunways has a problem on ios7. If you tap on any waypoint then tap 'Set XXX as origin of plan' the app immediately crashes.

Hopefully can get this one sorted out ASAP

I am very upset because, since updating my iPad to iOS 7 today, my flight sim game no longer enables me to compare my "piloting skills" with other players on a daily basis, but only more crudely over time, thus removing the fun. It is a bit like the BBC News Website, magazine section, changing their weekly Caption Competition, so that all the posts submitted no longer appear, which gave one a sense of public opinion expressed obliquely, but only a half dozen that the moderators, at the end, deem worthy of kudos. The cookie crumbles.

@VH-XXX - that's the idea. Software ergonomics is tricky, making something difficult look simple. Your comment about "kids phone" would be regarded as good feedback.

It's a slick interface in iOS7. The biggest pain is the change in color contract for fonts, which I think makes it harder to read.

The good thing about OzRunways is that it's moving ahead in development like a steam train. The downside is that stability can suffer with all of the changes.

Comparisons

As I have a company and a private iPhone, I installed on one and then went to different pages and apps to compare.

It was a bit strange to have things looking different at first, but it only took a few hours and I came to think the older version looked a bit darker and "cramped." The Photo app is improved, the clock and timer, which I use all the time, new ringtones available, but all the classics retained, Safari much neater, the control panel really a vast improvement. So much changed in a low key, subtle way, but everything improved as far as I have got and everything working.
