With Apple releasing iOS 7 today, a number of popular apps have posted updates in order to make sure they work properly with the new firmware. Some are just minor compatibility updates, and others are complete redesigns.

Instead of trying to do individual posts about each of these updates, we’ve decided to keep a running list of all of them so that you can get an idea of which applications have been updated and what the new versions look like…

  • :(

    Any news on ios 7 jailbreak? Goddamn I’m stuck on ios 5.1.1.

    • Tony Trenkle Jr.

      Why didnt you jailbreak ios 6?…

      • :(

        I only upgrade if I see that it’s beneficial to me. iOS 6 offered nothing worth upgrading for. At least not until much later when some good tweaks came on Cydia but it was already on 6.1.3 by then but no jailbreak came out for that :(

      • leart za jmi

        I miss ios 5.1.1 and google maps. Ios 6 was a poor upgrade, i am with you

    • http://mikelightman.com/blog mikelite

      REALLY? It’s been out for 11 seconds, don’t be that guy

    • Glorin

      STOP STEALING APPS.. .Upgrade today

      • Veranek

        If you think jailbreaking is about stealing apps you’re very confused.

      • Tope

        ^ A true idiot right here.

      • illuminati

        i can steal app without jailbreaking too dumbo

  • GuiyeC

    You can add .Radio, Chrome and Mailbox.

  • GuiyeC

    I bought Clear the day it was released and now I have to pay 3€ for 3 more features?
    I don’t know if anyone thinks this is a good marketing move, I obviously don’t and I’m not gonna pay for it.
    I was expecting something more if they were gonna charge me again, now I just feel like they are trying to rip me off.

    • Francisco

      If you already bought it then you dont have to do it again. It is saved in your account info.

      • GuiyeC

        It’s a “new” app, it’s not an update, they want everybody to pay again.

    • http://twitter.com/j_doss J. Christopher Doss

      A couple of points you might be overlooking:

      1. You are buying future features the other version won’t get

      2. You are getting support for the app

      3. Apple does not provide upgrade pricing. What other way can a company stay sustainable in regards to support and development without going to subscription pricing?

  • omrishtam

    R.I.P pandora lolz

    • Jonathan

      why? Looks awesome

      • Jedediah Kramer

        I am going to assume he was referring to the introduction of iTunes Radio. I have tried it since I downloaded and it is awesome, also one ad in over an hour of listening….. Stellar. I listened to Pandora for a minute today, after the first song there was a damn ad.

      • Jonathan

        I didn’t think of that. You’re probably right.
        For me, it goes in cycles, sometimes it seems like more ads than music (like every 2 – 3 songs an audio ad) and then sometimes I go weeks without an audio ads, just a little pop up every now and then, and lately, no audio ad.

        Right now I like Pandora better because it has a lot of Film Score music, and that’s what I’ve been listening to lately.

      • Johhny Q

        I give ya +1 for film score music

  • https://twitter.com/aphunex aphunex

    Mailbox!!!! <3

    • Jonathan

      I can’t close the app, I love too much. Help!

    • Minh 

      Mailbox 1.6 not work on iOS 6. It’s requires ios 7.0 or later. Really like Mailbox but still use 1.5 on ios 6.1

  • Preben Faarkrog Hansen

    disapointed of those hue dont change the color to pastel,,,, just the size…..

  • David Horbach

    Whatsapp?

    • GuiyeC

      Your faith is good. I’m sorry to break this to you, it can take months before we see anything like WhatsApp with an iOS 7 design :/

      • David Horbach

        Even a small update like changing the keyboard?

      • GuiyeC

        I would like to think it’s coming, but after seeing the disturbingly long time it took them to make the app iPhone 5 compatible…
        Just don’t check the AppStore daily waiting for it, if it comes it will be in all blogs most likely.

      • GuiyeC

        And also please let me be wrong.

      • David Horbach

        Yeah you are probarly right

  • NEWYORKMINUTE10

    Clear app is not update, it’s new app and they wanna suck in more money. F*ck them

    • Veranek

      I’m staying with the old one.

    • GuiyeC

      Realmac Software voted you down.

  • Andy

    Chrome also got an update today, it looks great on iOS 7.

  • Bout It Inc

    I thought Apple TV was gonna get a update also. Apple server so slow.

  • 919263

    If I have to pay for Apps that I already own all over again… I am moving to Android. This F_cking Sucks Big time.

    • http://aubrey.me Aubrey Johnson

      You’ll have to pay for all of the apps you already own there too. AND buy a new phone. Seems dumb.

      • 919263

        Not so dumb… Open Ecosystem, better specs and rid of this Apple Bull S_it…!!!!

  • Hunter

    Twitter is updated

  • T_Will

    Pocket Informant and Chrome got some nice updates too.

  • Bout It Inc

    Gonna wait for a jailbrake before a ios7 update. I like the apps that I can’t get from the App Store.

    • Jonathan

      doesn’t exist.
      Jailbreak does though. :)

  • NEWYORKMINUTE10

    Do anybody know if there’s any difference between the last beta and the final release?

    • Aaron de Silva

      GM and PR both same. Both builds are the same.

      • NEWYORKMINUTE10

        PR?

      • Aaron de Silva

        Public Release.

      • NEWYORKMINUTE10

        Do you know if beta 6 is the same as PR?

      • mickey

        Of course not….

      • Aaron de Silva

        Beta 6 is not the same. Haha sorry I thought u meant GM. But yea you should update from your beta to public release because beta 6 will expire soon.

      • Saeed Ghattas

        You should update, and it can be done only via itunes 11.1

  • Othman Hachum

    i am on beta 6 can i update to the official release???

    • Aaron de Silva

      Download the official release. Connect your device to iTunes and press Option + Check for Updates and select the update file. (Shift + Click – for windows)

    • ehX

      If you download it off iTunes or the direct download links on here.

  • Aaron de Silva

    • ehX

  • Dharam

    Is iOS 7 GM the same as the public release? if so in the GM version I didn’t have iTunes Radio and in the new iTunes on my Mac I don’t see it either, help

    • Reed Kitchens

      The new version of itunes and the IOS 7 GM both have iradio

      • Dharam

        I definitely have the new iTunes not sure where iRadio is though? and on iOS 7 GM there isn’t iRadio… I’m on the iPhone 4

      • Reed Kitchens

        My iphone 4 is running the GM currently and has iradio…not sure whats going on with yours but it should work

      • Phil S.

        Did you log out of your iTunes account then log back in? I had the same issue and that worked for me. iRadio has been in the last several betas and GM

    • NEWYORKMINUTE10

      It’s because u are probably not in US? If u use US registered account it works too

  • Jonathan

    Why aren’t the keyboards updated?

    • GuiyeC

      For an app to have the iOS 7 keyboard it has to be build for iOS 7.
      So, unless they update the app it will have the old keyboard.

      This may be because some apps have similarly design buttons on a bar on top of the keyboard and changing it would make some apps design inconstant.
      Also the iOS 7 keyboard is translucent and probably apps will start taking advantage of this, something that they couldn’t do before.

      • Jonathan

        But even the apps that are already updated for iOS 7 still have the old style keyboard. Other than that, I completely agree with you.

      • GuiyeC

        I said they had to be built for iOS 7, not only have an iOS 7 design.
        In the next update of those apps it will probably come with the new keyboard.

      • Jonathan

        Oh, sorry didn’t catch that.
        Thanks then. :) I’m just anxious for a 100% iOS 7 experience.

      • GuiyeC

        We all are my friend :)

      • Jonathan

        Indeed! When Mailbox was updated, I fell in love with it 10 times more.

      • http://klikkit.co.uk/ Jake – Klikkit

        which apps? because the google chrome app in this picture is incorrect, it actually uses the new keyboard

      • Jonathan

        I just tested a couple that I’m pretty sure had the old keyboard and now they don’t (Facebook and Mailbox) and I tested them after they updated. Weird, so nevermind. I’m happy. :) Now just to want for everything else to be updated. No sleep tonight. xD

  • Conanda

    Twitter for iOS has been updated too.

  • Luis M. Maldonado

    I’m on ios 6.1.3.. is there any hope about the jailbreak? or should I update to iOS 7?

    • Tyler P

      Stay if you really want a jailbreak. I would recommend updating.

  • kalanajayathilaka

    3DEarth Pro ???

  • Roguebantha

    You can now drop Newstand into your “Unused” Folder!!

    • Jonathan

      You could since beta 1.

  • J M

    The clear update is garbage…it barely looks different from the previous version.

    • The Shoonchy 

      True

  • ehX

    Is right-clicking on an app and clicking “Show in iTunes Store” working for anyone? It gets stuck loading for me. I was able to update around a dozen apps, but Twitter for instance isn’t showing an update. But manually clicking “iTunes Store” and then searching for it reveals an “Update” button.

    I’ll just chalk it up to server issues from all the iOS 7 downloads.

  • Matty.01

    HELP!!!!!!
    i was on ios 7 gm and i connected my itouch to itunes and restored it. Now im back on ios 6.1.3 and when i try to set it up it gives the message saying “Your iPod touch could not be activated because the activation server cannot be reached. Try connecting you iPod touch to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a couple of minutes.” i tried and connected it to itunes but it says the same thing.

    • GuiyeC

      Thats probably because there is too many people updating, it will most likely work in a while.
      Have you downloaded iOS 7 at least?
      And the GM is the same as the final version.

  • Luke Mulholland

    Facebook has been updated. Annoying some of the new updates aren’t being pushed through I have to search the app manually and do it.

    • Johhny Q

      i haven’t updated facebook ever since i read the reviews about the update back in july or aug.

  • Johhny Q

    not sure if i should update pandora, because it might conflict with Pandora downloader app from cydia.

    • Daniel Branch

      It has, as far as downloading. The unlimited skips and ad removal seems to be intact however. Pandy isn’t downloading either.

      • Johhny Q

        ok, thanks. I’ll stay away from updating

  •  Rich 

    How do I remedy this issue?

  • Minh 

    Mailbox requires iOS 7.0 or Later :( Anyone can run Mailbox 1.6 on iOS 6.1?

    Facebook has been updated too. Looks awesome.

    I just don’t get it, why would you pay again for Clear? It is the same app

  • Blue Tran

    Tweetbot > Twitter
    After using Tweetbot, the stock iOS Twitter just seems a bit lackluster. Both are great in their own ways. However, I will prefer to use Tweetbot.

    • Gerardo Castro

      Same here… just waiting to Tweetbot to update!

    Worth noting: Scanner Pro is currently at $2.99
