Sadly my worst decision since I got my ipad--update to ios 7. Lost all of my contacts, will no longer sync with my work e-mail and the calendar dropped half of my entries. Spent the last day and a half reloading contacts and trying to get the calendar reloaded with all of the data. If this is progress it sure is lost on me. So very disappointed and the final insult there is no way to return to ios 6
Thanks for the quick response--I just expected the upgrade to make things better not delete half of the things I use often. I wish the information on ios 7 would have warned they would be deleting e-mail accounts, contacts and calendar entries I would never have agreed to upgrade. At this point I do not see any improvement to my ios 6 features just a whole lot of work to get back to where I was before I pushed the upgrade button. Oh so frustrated!!!!!
I just noticed that some photo albums are incomplete. The original photos are still in the camera roll, but their links to the respective albums got broken. Not all, but some. FWIW, I started with a restore from a backup made immediately before updating.

I like the update. The only complaint I have is it appears that I have emails in a couple folders but I don't. I don't know how to fix that.
I upgraded last night and at first thought it had been a huge mistake but the more I play around with it, the more I like it. There are some things I don't like. I miss the legal pad-type notes but I'm sure I will adjust to the white pages eventually. I don't like the new look for folders but I like having more than 20 apps in there. I love the new multi-task bar. I noticed some system lag at first but a reset seems to have fixed that problem. My main complaint was the hard to read system font but I enabled bold font and used a darker background, so that is no longer a problem. All my apps seem to be working fine other than a Goodreader crash this morning. A quick reboot got it working again and so far all is good. One thing I have noticed seems to be a font color change in iBooks. I can't figure out how to get my black font back but it's just a minor annoyance. I am having some battery issues. I've turned off everything I deem unnecessary but the battery is still draining faster than normal. I'm going to blame that on the fact that I've been playing with this thing nonstop since I upgraded. Overall I'm very happy with the upgrade. I almost feel like I have a new ipad again!

I've discovered that I often visit the state of confusion, and I know my way around pretty well.
I'm not impressed. Maybe I'm missing something but all I see is a change in the icons on the opening page. And I would prefer a transparent background. The way they are now, interferes with my chosen picture.
I AM noticing quite a battery drain. I'm going to pay particular attention to this but it appears to be a significant drain. I've never noticed my power below 50% and right now it's at 48%. Interesting that when charging...the charging icon is green. That may be why I'm noticing it more.
Ok, so is there a way to back out of iOS7 if we don't like it?
