    Apple forcing i0S7 download ??

    I've read today various reports that Apple have started forcing (pushed) download of iOS7 (now 7.02) on devices. Thought at first it just affected iPhones, until I read this:

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/23187712#23187712

    Any iPAD 3/4 users experiencing the same? I haven't yet with my iPad 4. Bit of a cheek if it does. What about users who prefer to download to and install through iTunes?

    The downloaded software still won't install unless you tell it to and you can upgrade through iTunes if you want to, the download doesn't affect this.

    *shakes head*

    What really makes me laugh is....

    iOS 5 had this feature.

    iOS 6 had this feature.

    Yet people are making some freaking big deal over something that has been around for TWO YEARS.....

    Why are they just starting to complain now?

    It could be FUD from companies that don't know how to make a better product (Surface tablet anyone?). Typical sign of a small mind.. attack others instead of improving self.

    Because I only got my iPAD4 a month ago and have never owned an apple device before, so all of this is new to me

    Just after I posted the above, I received a notification that iOS 7.02 had been downloaded on my iPAD4; I guess that answers my question. Nice to give people the choice.

    I'm sure you'll get over it.

    Interesting that it downloaded while the iPAD was connected to my PC via USB (non-charging), so so much for the reports that it only happens when connected to AC supply.

    And I wonder, if I just leave it sitting there, what happens when a further update comes out? Will it replace the 7.02 download or add to it?

    From experience it will only download one update at a time, if you don't install it then you shouldn't get anymore downloads......but don't quote me on that!

    Yeah, I will.

    iOS devices don't differentiate between input power sources. So to it, it was hooked to AC. The only thing they really check for is too low of an amperage and if detected warn the users that the device will communicate but not charge.

    And it will replace it based on the last two years of using it but if memory serves it waits about 2 weeks.
