Apple iOS 7 update now out and ready for download




Apple finally released their latest major OS update , the iOS 7. The release represents the most significant cosmetic revamp iOS ever has since the iPhone was introduced in 2007.

We rummaged thru our storage to get a hand on an iPhone 5 and run the update very early this morning. The update is supposed to be 752MB (which is already huge) but you will need an extra space of at least 3.1GB in order to install it.

`

There were reports that a lot of people are getting error results while downloading the update which prompted them to repeat the process for dozens of time (were were lucky we only did it after 2 tries). If you get lucky, the download will take about 15-20 minutes and another 15 minutes to install it.

To update, in your iOS devices, just go to Settings -> General and select Software Update.

Check out our initial comments about iOS 7 here.

    It took me two hours. Finally! Nakakapanibago. Facebook na optimized for iOS 7 is really fast. twitter looks awful though.

  2. 3Ly says:

    Coool, so tempted to do the update but I rather do it later at non-peak hours to ensure the smooth internet connection

  3. ayowez says:

    This is what I like about iOS, simultaneous ang update unlike other OSs.

  4. Lemon says:

    ummmmm….. another lemon…. yawn…. purely cosmetic,… nothing very new, next OS please; huhumm I want “true” multitasking, like Android , Blackberry, Windows, Firefox, Ubuntu, that is, if apple engineers have the brains to figure it out, and their hardware could support it…. pass. Oh wait, let’s ask Samsung to do it for them…. yawn …. yawn…..zzzzzznnnngggooooorrrrkkkkk

    Parang android lang. Hehehe. It took me 3hrs to download and install on my ipad mini. Mga 7 tries bago naging successful. Kaya nga 7 kc iOS”7″. May naencounter aq na bug sa notification center settings nagforce close. Pero overall bagong bago ang UI xmpre gusto natin bago.

    na-download ko an sa ipad3 ko. nice, at least almost same sa mga adroid devices ko. now, d na masyadong smooth if i open more than 4 apps. I think thats the reason y apple didn’t make this sooner coz di kaya ang hardware niya. at least my A7 na siya now to support this. This didn’t change my mind to sell my ipad3 then buy a note 10.1 2014 edition this december.

  13. Glenkz Cabz says:

    I’ve turned on airdrop on my device and i believe airdrop is by default turned on in a macbook pro. Does anyone of you were able to use this feature Successfully? Also, I don’t have yet itunes radio in my music player.

  14. Jay says:

    just updated to iOS 7 on an iPhone 4S and my first impression is that it doesn’t behave as buttery as it did with previous iOS versions. It feels like a laggy Android phone. this iOS probably needs a faster processor and at least 1GB RAM

  15. Azhar says:

    Device become slow. :(

  16. Abed says:

    Still updating…

    10 Hours to go, I doubt this baka 10 years pa to matapos. OK lang kaya the next day ko na lang continue na p-pause naman ang DL eh.

    Connect ako sa more reliable internet sa day-off. :)

  17. booboo says:

    ang galing galing talaga ng Wikipedia. may complete, easy-to-read list on what’s new in iOS7.

  18. Kami says:

    As a long time iOS user, iOS7 is simply a breath of fresh air. Ano pa man sabihin ng iba dyan, this update made my iphone5 snappier. Iba yung experience.

  19. Tzar says:

    Around 4am this morning my download stops with an error and it shows that my iOS is the latest (iOS 6.1.4) after trying again, I tried again after 30 mins, then it goes thru for around 30 minutes and the 15 minutes additional time for installing

  20. Danna salayo says:

    Sino po ang iPad3 dito na nakapag update na ng iOS7?? Compatible ba sya sa iPad3? :)) thanks sa magrereply. :)

    • jcnjcjcnjc says:

    • sir jacko says:

      Yes. Don’t update if you hate lag. Stutters everywhere. And im on ipad 4 with faster hardware than your ipad 3. Im actually looking for ways to downgrade and go back to ios6.

    • Boyboy says:

      Baka di ka marunong mag compare ng mga size ng mga updates. Ang ios 7 is a version update at hindi version patch

    • Boybakat says:

      Kakaupgrade ko lang kanina ng ip5 ko nag start ako around 8pm at alam ko busy hour to. Wala pang 1 hour ios7 na. Try mo din po mag upgrade muna ng internet o kaya lipat po kayo sa syudad kung saan my masmagandang internet bago po bumili ng pamalit na phone.

  28. FanBoy says:

    lol. highblood much? eto pa para ma highblood ka. isipin mo kaya, gaano kadami ang nag update to ios 7? hindi kaya yan ang dahilan? madaming dahilan kung bakit mabagal/makupad ang pag download ng ios 7 :) pag may ios 7 na yung iphone 5 mo, este, hindi nga pala sa iyo kungdi sa gf mo, post mo kung ano masabi mo :)

    • apple crap says:

      FanBoy, apple experience nga apple sucks, try again pa rin ang download until 4am. Ng madownload ko two hours sa bagal. Sa bb10 at android 4.2.2 wla pa 5 minutes, dowload to reboot-full re start, new os na. FYI gumagamit ako apple, but sorry, if one is accustomed using sports car, you find a sarao jeepney just plain christmas tree with nothing to brag about. Apple iphone is sarao jeepney for me. Sorry.

      Boybakat, I live in valle verde. Lte ang broadband ko.

      Just sharing my angst. Dont get offended apple fans, you god is your god. I would not mind it.

      To me, a cellphone is just a cellphone regardless of brand. If I want to play games, I could always use my playstation or my qosmio hooked in 3d toshiba flat panel and pioneer elite dolby home theater.

      I also use ipad and mac air for plain browsing the net. But I prefer my vaio pro for more demanding internet odd jobs, and my tablet z for ebook reading. Ok.

    • Mr. Curious says:

      Nakakatawa naman talaga tong mga android users. Tinatawanan niyo na nag ooverload ung apple server sa mga nag uupdate sa ios7? Eh malamang hindi niyo naranasan un. hindi naman kasi nagkaka OTA,
      kung meron man isang beses niyo lang mararamdaman un. swerti pa kayo sa lagay na iyon.

    • FanBoy says:

      “To me, a cellphone is just a cellphone regardless of brand.” – I agree with you on this :)

      “Eh malamang hindi niyo naranasan un. hindi naman kasi nagkaka OTA, kung meron man isang beses niyo lang mararamdaman un. swerti pa kayo sa lagay na iyon.” – Ay, okay. Sabi mo eh. lol. Obviously wala ka alam sa Android, wala kwenta, pointless kung makipag talo/discusyon/makipag ano ano pa sa iyo :p

  29. amasono says:

    bakit basta may major update ang apple o kahit anumang article na related sa apple, kitang kita mo ang bitternes ng mga fandroids sa mga comments nila.

    pero pag related sa android ang article, di naman yata bitter ang mga apple fans. tahimik lang sila.

    ehem!

    sa mga fans pa lang, kitang kita mo na ang malaking pagkakaiba. Makikita mo talaga kung anong klaseng nilalang sila, at least kung ibabase sa mga posts nila.

    ibig bang sabihin nun, broad-minded and/or well educated lang talaga ang mga apple fans?

    nagtatanong lang… :D

    • anokamo says:

      Bitter din yang mga iTards. Kaya lang tahimik kasi tanga at hindi makapagsalita ng maayos.

    • FanBoy says:

      Let’s put it this way, android fans will be android fans, Apple fans will be Apple fans. There there are hardcore Android users, the same goes for Apple. We’re entitled to our opinions and comments, those who prefer to keep silent doesn’t mean they’re more educated. These facts will remain, regardless.

      In my personal opinion, Android users are more opinionated because Android is an open OS.

      And food for thought, iOS and Android trace their roots to Unix. While Android is allowed installation on non-Android, Apple/iOS is not.

      Baka nosebleed ka, copy paste mo sa google translate :p

    • amasona says:

      @Fanboy’

      Weehh!!??

      Ayaw ko sa google translate eh, gusto ko sa bing translate.

      ehem!

      sige lang, i-justify mo pa! :D

      sabi nga..

      “ang tubig kapag matining, arukin mo at malalim. pero kapag ito ay maingay, arukin mo at mababaw”

      sang-ayon? o agree?

    • amasono says:

      tanga daw oh, di masyado halata na tanga ka sa style ng pagpost mo, weeeeh?!

      sabagay, galit daw ang tanga sa kapwa nya tanga. haha!

      sige lang, todo depensa lang.. karapatan mo yan!

      “ang tubig kapag matining, arukin mo at malamim. pero kapag ito ay maingay, arukin mo at mababaw”

      Sapol ba?
      Ilag ilang din kahit walang time. :D

    • FanBoy says:

      Ay, hindi na gets. lol :p

  30. Napadaan lang... says:

    May IOS 7 na, next na aabangan ng mga fanboy or inde man fanboy na may apple product ay ung Jailbreak for IOS 7, hehehehehe

    Abuzalzal, share mo naman ung thoughts mo sa IOS 7.

  31. ggg says:

    anyways.. uhm napansin nio po ba na sa iphones/ipod-touch, ipad 4 at mini lang meron yung “BLUR + TRANSPARENCY” effects..

    did a research at ang sabi sa Beta 4 meron daw nun sa lahat ng pwedeng mag-upgrade to iOS 7.. ouch naman na tinanggal nila un sa ipad 2 & 3.. parang windows 8 tuloy ung feel dahil “less transparency” lang yung meron…

    asan na ung design aesthetic na sinabi nila. :( sana i-consider nila at i-fix sa next updates.

  32. IOS7 says:

    Filters for camera and square shots are now available for the iPad 2! BOOM!
    First impressions:
    Performance: 8/10
    Design emphasis: 9/10
    Panalo ka talaga Jony Ive!!!

  33. bebz says:

    ahhmm ask lang anu po ba features ng ios7? nagkamali yTA ako na dinownload ko.. base sa nabasa ko..kadisappoint nman.. kakastart ko palang ng mgdownload..

  34. Milhouse says:

    Lag problems reported in iPads. Hmm.

    Will not update for now,

  35. li says:

    bat walang radio?

  36. fandroid says:

    ang advice sa mga mabilis ma lowbat:
    1. off background app refres
    2. off location based oafs, popular near me, traffic, setting time zone
    3. off location services
    4 Off airdrop
    5. reduce background 3 d motion

  37. Kulasa says:

    ios7 looks good. I like the design and everything but what I noticed it made my battery drain so easily and faster than before upgrading to ios7. Plus, the slow motion when you tap button or keypad, this cant help you when you’re typing in a hurry mode or let say during emergencies. Hope Apple can fix this.

  38. Jhess says:

    Bat skin press ko ung install ng ios7 namatay tapos lumabas ung logo ng itunes kya d ko na maopen ung ipad mini ko bk pde nyo naman ako matulungan maayos.thnx!
