Just a heads up – the update servers are currently slammed so the downloads may be VERY slow. Just have done patience or try tomorrow.
And in typical ArlNow forum fashion, I would like to change the topic by noting that the pedestrian crossing sign has returned to northbound Barton Street just before Fairfax Drive.
@courthound…thanks for your assistance. If OS7 doesn’t “fix” my timestamp text message issue, I may go back to ATT. The other pain with Verizon is if you are on the phone, you can’t access the Internet. So, if you are having a conversation and want to look up movie times, no go.
Oh,,,,this may be of help to others. From Wired Magazine: This downloadable wallpaper teaches you iOS 7′s new gestures: bit.ly/1eQT2Hx
And….@courthound wrote, “the pedestrian crossing sign has returned to northbound Barton Street just before Fairfax Drive.” GREAT! So we can update to OS7 while crossing Barton Street!
Swipe left and it shows you the timestamps of all texts not just the start of a conversation. ios7 is pretty nice so far, dig the new look.
@James E: Does it show when the sender sent text, or reader opened up that text? thanks…. With OS6 and Verizon, I do see timestamps for each text, but only when I sent it, or when I recieved (as in opened the text). Not when it was sent. So when a text says, “I will be there in 15 min” I don’t know if it was sent 15 min ago, or an hour and 15 min ago.
I believe it is stamped as soon as you receive it, not opened but when your phone physically gets the text.
700 mb download, did you do it via itunes and a computer?
I upgraded all of my devices via iTunes. That way I could make sure it was backed up first.
Article on saving battery after OS7 (some apply to earlier OS also). The below is taken word for word from The Consumerist web site.
Turn off background refresh: Some apps running on iOS 7 will automatically refresh even if you’re not using them, which is nice because you won’t have to do so manually, but will drain your battery if all of them set on that. Go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh to change settings.
AirDrop is a battery sucker: The new AirDrop feature allows users to transfer files easily, but you should turn it off when you don’t need it, in the new Control Center area. Swipe up on the home screen to get there and then tap to enable or disable it.
Not using mobile data or Wi-Fi? Off with you: If you’re not using the Internet, you can save battery by turning off whichever mode you’d be using to access it. Wi-Fi and mobile network use can both be enabled/disabled in the Control Center.
Dynamic wallpaper and 3D awesomeness are battery life enemies: Any kind of animation or moving screen wallpaper is going to stick a straw in your battery and suck it as hard as it can. Toggle the “Reduce Motion” option in the Accessibility menu and console yourself about not having your screen act like an iMax adventure.
MY NOTE: I assume “background refresh” means updating apps? And not a screen background?
TRANSFER PURCHASES TO ITUNES:
When I tried to upgrade to OS7, a message appeared warning that I had purchased items (on my iPhone) that were not in my iTunes library (on my mac). To transfer them look at iTunes screen, right click “Your iPhone” and select “transfer purchases.” Now onto the update……
