Ewe, ios7, hurl
We should all phone both numbers randomly throughout the day, just for a laugh.
Not sure why some people feel they have battery life issues? My i5 has been going for 38 hours with 2 of those use as a personal hotspot uploading and downloading data, much playing of the new UI, organising photo’s, and hor long stint of Real Racing on the throne and general FB, texts and calls – ie a “heavier” day than usual, and its showing 9% now?Posted 4 years ago
I like it appart from the icons.
Some of the newly deisgned apps look lovely and the thin fonts and borders bring out the best in the retina screen. But some of the icons look like they were designed by a child. Some are great though.
Calendar, voice memos, even photos are all nice.
But the messages, camera and settings icons all make me want to stick little bits of tape over the sceen where they appear. Blurgghhh.
Oh, and Safari, whats with the compass icon. Makes no sense and is fugly.Posted 4 years ago

Hasn’t Safari always been a compass? e.g. in 2010:
Completely agree it makes no sense though!
But then does a burning fox make any sense either? 😀Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
I think it’s great other than the fact it’s ugly and siri has caught a cold (on my ipad mini anyway, others sound fine)
Still not going to spunk £550 on an iphone though, not a chance. Even worse on contract, the one plan on 3 works out to cost £700odd over 2 years. Mental.Posted 4 years ago

No but at least its just a abstract company name and the icon matches. I’d be quite happy with a picture of an elephant or giraffe to represent the word “Safari” or some icon to represent the internet.
But the compass is and always has been ugly and out of place. The place for it on my phone is the folder where apple’s stock apps a hidden from sign, nestled up with maps and stocks.Posted 4 years ago
I’m sure some marketroid somewhere would explain that the brand language of “Safari” creates a mental image of adventure through uncharted territory, exciting and possibly even dangerous, and your browser is the compass that helps you navigate through that adventure safely.
Or some such bollocks.
But yeah – it’s a crap icon. Could be worse though:

The idea of “navigating” the world wide web is something that’s been around since the very early days so it makes perfect sense really. Anyone remember this?
FWIW I like iOS 7. The added features are great, and I like the new clean design – especially the fonts which are now specifically designed for retina screens. My initial reaction was “wow that’s bright” but it definitely makes the design above ^^^^ (with the OTT shadows, highlights, etc) look quite dated already… (although I thought they were a bit naff anyway)Posted 4 years ago
When I first read that the Control Centre could be accessed from a locked phone and used to turn on Airplane Mode – thus rendering Find my iPhone useless – I had a panic and turned this feature off ASAP. I then missed it, so thought what the possible impact was.
My understanding is that the new iOS7 means that the phone cannot be reset without the iCloud credentials. If my phone fell into the wrong hands and they turned on Airplane Mode, the thief would be left with a phone they are unable to reset to use themselves or flog. They can’t get into it either, assuming I have a passcode on it that they don’t crack. OK, so I’ve lost a phone but – in theory – I’ve lost no valuable or sensitive data.
As soon as they turn wireless on or airplane mode off (i discovered today that Airplane mode can be used with wireless and Bluetooth on) I can use Find my iPhone to wipe the data.
In summary, I reckon the risks of having Control Centre accessible from the lock screen are minimal.Posted 4 years ago
I think that is the issue. With Airplane Mode turned on they can take as long as they like to crack the passcode and you can’t do anything to stop them.
There is an option tthat will reset the phone after 10 failed attempts though.
Exactly, so it’s not as bad as some people are making it.Posted 4 years ago
