Apple’s iOS 7 update rolled out Wednesday, though for some users, it might as well have not been released at all. As millions of iDevice users virtually flock to Apple’s servers for the over-the-air download, many were disappointed and still aren’t allowed to install the new operating system due to overcrowding.
Some users claim the update took hours to download, only to fail just before it was finished.
43 minutes remaining to download iOS 7.0 but now 10 minutes later there is an error,and I have to upload it again with another 2 hour wait— Elle Lake (@lizzylake) September 18, 2013
My phone's warranty is going to be up by the time I get this new update. And I still have a year left on that. #iOS7— Olivia (@Oliviasdabomb) September 19, 2013
Although the update is lengthy, users are sticking through the hours it takes to download for a shot at seeing Apple’s newest release. The flat chic offers icons that supposedly mimic Windows’ mobile OS and Android, yet they provide a unique take on Apple’s minimalist design.
Aside from an extreme aesthetic overhaul, more features that improve usability were released including iPhone to iPhone Airdop, improved Safari browser and iTunes Radio.
The new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will hit shelves Friday morning.
