white iPhone 5s front

We now know nearly one out of each three iOS users has upgraded to iOS 7 in the first sixteen hours of its availability. Have you? We’re only asking you to tell us whether or not you upgraded by now, in order to get a better understanding of the iOS 7 adoption rates thus far.

This being a non-scientific YES/NO poll means readers who haven’t upgraded yet but are planning to should of course vote with a ‘no’…

Cast your vote now.

If you’re still sitting on the fence, tell us why down in the comments.

We also ran two other polls following the September 10 double iPhone keynote, one asking whether you’ll be buying a new iPhone – with half of the respondents voting ‘yes’ – and the other dealing with the iPhone 5C colors.

The latter revealed an interesting preference among those iDB readers who participated in the poll: blue seems to be the favorite pick for more than one-third of respondents and pink expectedly turned out to be the least popular color with our (mostly male) readership.

    I updated to ios 7 and then downgraded back. I did not like the color scheme or how flat the icons looked. Too much white everywhere.

  • appl3h4ck3r

    I lost my GPP unlock when I did -.- anyone know the availability of an R-SIM compatible with iOS 7?

  • Luke Renner

    iOS 7 on iPhone 4 is fatally slow. I wouldn’t recommend upgrading if on that phone if you can avoid it.

    • Sandeep Roy

      OTA ? or Restored as new ?

  • Antzboogie

    ios 7 looking like a Winterboard tweak LMAO Like all the features they robbed from Cydia. At least give credit where its due Apple

  • David Villamizar

    If you own an iPhone 4, stay away from the update, my iPhone is so laggy after this update, even the homescreen is laggy.

    • Sandeep Roy

      Did you restore, set up as new or updated OTA ?

      • David Villamizar

        I did a clean restore to reinstall iOS 6.1.3 after trying the last beta of iOS 7 due to the same issues, so I thought that was enough.

    Upgraded my sons iPad 4. Did not upgrade me iPad 2 yet. No rush, I’m deciding. Will not upgrade my JB 4s until there’s a jailbreak.

  • MV

    Waiting for iOS 7 Jailbreak, wont be updating even though tempted until we have a Untethered JB

  • 5ingularity

    iOS 7 is a complete overhaul, so i’ll just stay with ios 6 for now,
    because even if a jailbreak gets released, its going to take jailbreak
    devs a while to make tweaks and themes compatible with iOS7. I do like the features of ios 7 but i cannot withstand the ugly(imo) stock app icons(for example, safari and itunes), and that is why i’m not upgrading. I’m just going to wait out a bit to see what happens with the 6.1.4 jailbreak, if there is one, great,if there isn’t, no problem, i’ll update when iOS 7.1 comes out.(It’ll be optimized much better).

  • quiotgrrl

    Have not upgraded because I’m hoping for a jailbreak. I actually like what I’ve seen of iOS 7 (yes, even the icons 😛 ), although it’s a little too much white for my taste. But they “borrowed” some of the best jailbreak developers’ ideas as usual, so I’m tempted.

  • Jo

    Everybody would like to know who is male and who is female on this blog. A poll would be great!

  • Orlando Rafael Diaz

    Ios 7 is the worst thing to happen to the iphone .. It seriously reminds me of a windows phone .. Hate it

  • disqus_QAY9UrV3ck

    I upgraded to ios 7 during the beta and realize it was in no way a rn to loose a jailbroken ios 6 so I may update when the next untethered jailbreak comes out

  • Justin Stein

    I upgraded, but downgrades are still possible to 6.1.3! What is Apple doing!?


    I havent upgraded to Ios7 yet for two reasons first my itunes is out of use cuz my laptop is broken and cant access it until i fix it and to do that i need £300 at least the bare minimum. second reason is that Apple are well known to have issues with Updates and new phones etc lots of Bugs and lots of problems only today i have been chatting to a employee from the carphonewarehouse about the IOS7 and he said to wait few weeks before updating as this one has crashing problems so imma wait a while before i update my iphone5…

  • Ben Perkins

    I updated on my iPad, but I need my iPhone jailbroken. I wish I’d waited though, it feels rushed and sloppy…


    Luckily i havent updated mine yet phewww made the right decision to investigate further before committing to the update… gonna wait a while before updating…

  • Greg S

    My JBn iPhone5 had a broken sleep(on/off) button, so I waited till the day before the 1year warranty expired (Australia, yes I know u can push for the 2 year but didnt want the hassle).
    So now I’m waiting for for the iOS7 JB while my new iP5 remains on iOS6.1.4 just in case.

  • Ernie Marin

    I did with the intention of running a quick test drive and then switching back to 6.1.4 or .3, but when i saw my Wi-Fi had improved (which was a constant issue with ios 6) I decided to stay at 7 and just wait if a jailbreak if ever released, if not the os still looks and feels great so no regrets here.

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    I can’t picture going back to iOS 6. While there are some things I dislike about iOS 7, there are way more things I do look. They feel, the design, the typography is all elegant. Maybe tone down the color just a bit, and take away some of the white. But that’s what jailbreaking is for! 😀

  • Fro_Man_

    I did not because i tried the Beta, and Did Not Like it. So. Plus, I am waiting for the new Jailbreak!

  • Liam Mulcahy

    Jailbreak over iOS 7

  • mkOS

    No, I won’t update until there’s a iOS 7 Jailbreak.

  • Nirvana

    I much prefer iOS 7 reversed gradient teases from Surenix. I shall wait for the jailbreak

  • mav3rick

    Think before.

    • mav3rick

      You really want this?
      And “the best” new ones are left out. Check the new Game Center, Safari, Photos, Settings, Photo Booth, Newsstand icons… Ugly as hell!!! Plus blinding white screens allover!!!

  • Roniel Galang

    I’ve updated my iphone 5 too but i did not updted my ipad coz it is jailbroken ive used to play some paid apps there lol

  • Aditya Varman

    no !because im still in love with ios 6.1.3 .why ?! because im waiting to install tweak which available in cydia hehe

  • Victor J. Lockwood

    Hell no! At least not until a jailbreak comes out.

  • @mfpearl

    I updated to ios7 gm and downgraded within the same day. went back and forth through all of the betas already.

  • O Al Marar

    yes but i want to return

    how can i downgrade to iOS6?
    i didn’t like iOS7, it seem like the colors are not real and it is colors with out life, you feel that no life in iOS7 colors (white and black or white and blue or white and green) very simple and bored color

  • Sas

    Can i still Upgrade My iOS 5.1.1 to 6.1.3 on My 4s with a custom ipsw? Is Apple only Signing the iOS 7 already?

  • Abdullah

    Being a designer, I utterly hate how ridiculous iOS7 look. I’d rather wait for a jailbreak and theme this shit. Once the jailbreak is out, I’m going to treat myself with an iPhone 5S.

    My current screen looks way better than the rainbow farting pony!

  • DogGuy

    I upgraded yesterday, Sept 20. Pretty fast, I’d say about 1/2 hour start to finish. Nothing was lost in the upgrade except that I don’t see weather in the notification center anymore. I use Weatherbug anyway, but it was nice to have it there. Overall I like it much better than iOS6. The look and feel is very nice. The only things I don’t think look good are the calendar and the timer. If you’re wondering how to get the list view on calendar, touch the search (magnifying glass). It took me a while to find that.
    I’m very happy with the upgrade to iOS 7.

  • Julie McAlister

    I’m really enjoying it, but am unable to close off apps in the old multitasking managing bar by double clicking on the home button then pressing firmly on the open app until it wiggles, bring up a little red box with an x inside. Pressing that
    red x would close the running application not in use, saving me heaps of battery life……
    *Sigh* can anyone HELP ME!!
