  • iOS 7.1
  • At least my crappy old 4 has become usable again. 🙂

    My daughter is going to be pleased. She was so excited to inherit a 4, then realised that it was slower than her 3GS

    I found the 4s excruciating with ios7 so god knows how slow the 4 was.

    Weird, not my experience at all – same as it always was speed wise, but maybe I don’t ask that much of mine.

    Battery life not great now though – could be an old battery or the newer os – a day out in that London using it as a map, a bit of internet searching, email the odd call and a few tunes and it won’t last the day any more.

    I have a 4s with 7 and now 7.1, seems fine.

    Have to say the turn by turn sat nav feature is excellent – no idea when that came in though, maybe with 7?

    I’ve noticed a bit of an improvement on my iPad2 (which uses the same processor as the iPhone 4S) thankfully – it was becoming a bit painful!

    My mrs thinks I’m a very sad man for how excited I get when I get a call as I love to see the round answer button roll along as you slide it to answer the call. She may have a point.

    I find it even more impressive when walking through cities. Headphones on, music going, and a polite voice interrupting every so often telling you which way to walk.. all without having to get your phone out of your pocket.

    My 4 is painfully slow with iOS 7 so good news if this is an improvement.

    Yeah not my experience either. Missus has a 4 with iOS7 and when I use it it seems pretty much the same as my 4s.

    But plenty of people have reported slowness on 4 so maybe it depends on some other factors? (background apps? free space? network speed?) Hopefully this update improves things for them.

    Nearly as good as Google Maps! (or NavFree) 😀

    The missus’ 4S runs iOS7 perfectly well. No lag or crashes etc.

    I updated my 5s last night and only a couple of things have changed, bit of graphics really..

    4S fine with 7, 4 a bit laggy, like a cheap Android tablet 🙂

    Will give the 7.1 a go on it see if it is worth selling now!

    ive just updated to 7.1 and i must admit it feels like a new phone again, its fast scrolling STW, texting seems upto speed instead of lagging, just generally seems a bit smoother, and also the graphics seem to be a bit more precise too

    certainly made mine better

    Oooh best I get this on my Jobs pad.

    Ok spotted the new phone answer and end buttons.

    What else is new?

    What else is new?

    A few visual refinements e.g. keyboards. Different way of answering the phone (better IMO). Calendar improvements (Gee2DaEss should be pleased 🙂 ) and for 4 and 4S users, much faster and more responsive (certainly the case for my 4). Some Siri refinements for those with that.

    Still no Flash though.

    The keyboard seems nicer. I think the ‘@’ has appeared again on it.

    No one has phoned me yet 🙄

    I’d like a friend.

    Post your number on here and I’m sure someone will ring you

    I like the new feature that shows the word being typed out and the keys being hit in real time as I type instead of the word appearing a few seconds later. I had begun to miss it. 😆

    Calendar improvements (Gee2DaEss should be pleased )

    Yep, better. Still not fantastic but at least it is now on a par with iOS6.

    I’ve long since given up with the built-in Calendar and moved to Fantastical 2 instead. (which isn’t perfect either but considerably more functional).

    Fantastical is a really good calendar, I moved when IOS 7 gave up being a useful calendar.
