Install iOS 7 or iOS 6?
7 of course. Of course it depends on if your device can upgrade to it at all. You didn't mention which you have. iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s & 5c iPod touch 5G iPad 2, 3, 4 can. Anything else, can't.
Is iOS 7 installed iPad 2 stable?
Ok. First: we all know that ios 7 doesn't run all that well on older devices like the iPad 2 or the iPhone 4. But it runs great on the 4S comparatively. Everyone is facing this issue you aren't just the one. Second - you asked if you should upgrade or restore, well honestly it doesn't matter. If you don't want to load all your stuffs into the device from scratch you can just hit upgrade. Third - let me talk about ios 7.1. I am currently using 7.1 beta 2 on my iPhone 4 and it's fast. Yes you read it right, it's FAST!!! Really!! I am super impressed. I compared 7.0.4 and the latest 7.1 beta 2. And I'm super surprised. It's very responsive and really fast. Apps open/close faster. Folders open/close faster. Over all it's really great and they have worked a lot on it I believe. Running an advanced OS on slower devices is something difficult cause we all know how ios 6 was on the 3GS. I thought 7 would be the same on the 4 and it was but when I started using 7.1 i was seriously surprised. So if you want ios 7 to work better on your iDevice, all I can ask you to do is wait for 7.1 Or just start using 7 and get used to it. When apple releases 7.1 (due march 14) you will know how much they must have worked on it just to make it run perfectly on older devices.
If I install iOS7 5 beta, will I lose all of my text messages?
Installing beta software should always be understood to carry the maximum possibility of risk. You should be prepared to lose all your data, have your device rendered completely inoperable, or worse: have apps and services misbehave in unpredictable ways!That said: I've installed all the iOS 7 betas and haven't lost anything (yet). All my texts are still there, as are all my photos. And I've not heard of anyone losing all their data, either.
Downloaded iOS 7 but it won't install?
Same thing is happening to me! I'm getting so frustrated!
I downloaded a beta version of iOS but it doesn't install fully because it doesn't verify me as a developer. How do I downgrade to iOS 7 without being able to get into the iPad?
Hi - you will need to put your device into recovery mode and re-install the ios7.1.1 from scratch.Unless you made a backup of your device before you will need to start from scratch, which is not necessarily a bad thing.There are plenty of links when you type into google and with this comes the inevitable advise......know what you are getting when you install pre release software, especially an operating system.
Is there a way to install iOS 6 back after you upgrade an iPhone to iOS 7?
If you still have the old iOS 6 package file together with your last iOS 6 backup on iTunes, you can try restore your phone by holding the option key and press Restore iPhone button on iTunes. However, even if this works, why would you do that? The looks of iOS 7 is probably annoyingly unfamiliar at first but, let's face it, on one super busy day we will probably find ourselves get used to it. The main thing is that all iTunes Store apps will (be forced to) adopt the iOS 7 cues and update new features based on that from this point on. Why would you want to miss important new features and bug fixes, especially with your favorite purchased apps?
