    Using a simple swipe down, again from any screen, iOS 7 users can access the new Notification Centre.
    You know, I'm sure I've seen that somewhere before ... now what OS has a notifications page that you can access by swiping down....?

    You must be mistaken, Apple innovate everything (sarc). I can't think of anything I hate more than Apple -_-

    What, not even Hitler? Reality TV?

    I used to be an Apple hater, a dyed in the wool detester. Then, mostly by accident, I went into an Apple Store and had a mess around on an iPad whilst I waited (and waited) for my other half to buy shoes. I got an iPad a few days later, then I built a Hackintosh and that got me into OS X.

    I now have quite a bit of Apple kit (I'm typing this on a mid-2011 MacBook Air) which is lying next to my Nexus 7 (1st gen, running Jelly Bean.) I've been using iOS 7 for a little while now (I'm a registered developer - this MacBook is running Mavericks, too) and I really like it. I prefer it to Android, if I'm honest but that's probably (mainly) because I rely on iMessages a lot..

    Anyway, so far I think iOS 7 is an improvement on iOS 6. I like Apple kit, I would never, ever queue up to buy the stuff, though!

    I must admit, a good thing Apple have going with iOS is the way they can make it available immediately, I know it's due to the closed architecture, but it annoys the hell out of me how with Android if your device is over 2 months old you have to wait 6 months for the handset manufacturer to test a new OS, then 6 months for your network to ram it full of rubbish before you get to install it.

    I think the Apple A7 is more the interesting news:

    Upgraded three iPhones and two iPads without too many issues. I managed to start my iPhone update at 5.55 so the download only took about 5 minutes! Yay...

    Anyways, as to what's new, I haven't really had a chance to play with the thing yet. I really like the flat look of the new interface though as well as the swiping down and and swipe up info tabs. One thing I didn't like is being asked to choose between British English and English. But I'll say no more about that otherwise I'll just rant!
    An Atlantean Triumvirate, Ghosts of the Past, The Centre Cannot Hold
    The Pillars of Britain, Foundations of the Reich, Cracks in the Pillars.

    My books are available here for Amazon Kindle. Feedback always welcome!

    Did my 4 last night, upgrade failed so restored to iOS7 then restored from my recent backup. Looks ok so far, nothing amazing but we all knew that

    Updating my wife's 4 now, at least her phone is only 16GB not 32 as mine took forever to restore
