    Recently updated our iPads to IOS 7.0 as I learned with the last update, Apple may appear to offer an update, but even if you don't do the update, one day you just open up your device and it's been done for you.

    IPad 2: My i pad 2 seems to be running fine, but I have encountered a visibility challenge: the icon labels are so light I almost cannot see them. I found putting a different darker choice of wallpaper behind the apps made them readable. Challenge 2, similar problem: my email & other apps fonts are the opposite of normal not bold: the lines forming the letters are too narrow to see without additional light. (Feels like hitting 40 all over again!). Any suggestions? Next challenge: when asked to pick a 4 digit PIN, I did. I didn't know that every few minutes i would have to put in that dang #! I've countered with a 15 minute lead to sleep over the 2 minute one. Seems a waste of power. How do I get rid of the PIN? I thought it would be used in case of theft...???

    iPad 3: HELP!!! It was running a little bit slow before, but on new IOS, I wait up to a minute for a typed letter to appear. I had high hopes when the patch update came through today that it might help, but it did not. What can I do?

    IPhone 4s working fine, but it automatically updated to IOS 7 and now wants me to buy more storage because the 0.2 patcg is bigger than 1.3 gig, so until I pay Apple more my phone is open to attack?

    NOTES's app: I liked the yellow page format! Once again, the print is hard to read. Surely I cannot be the only user who has trouble seeing the writing! Up until now my only wish for this app was that I would like to re-order the 'notes' by alpabetical order i stead of chronologically. Yes, I ran through the new changes. I did not see that as one of them.

    Up until now!!! I would have fought like a tiger about the ease of use for both ipads & my 4s. Right now I feel like they unloaded an unvetted beta!

    Since this is my foray on this forum, I'm sure I've put my questions in the wrong spot or attempted to ask too many, but what i loved 48 hours ago, I'm ready to divorce today. I need counseling!
    :rolleyes:

    Hi there,

    Sorry that you have had such a dismay about your iOS update on your idevices.

    I am going to move this to the iOS 7 thread for better attention.

    I will be the first to respond. First please down load both manuals for ios7 for iPhone and iPad in iBooks I suggest also you read through the iOS 7 threads where we have answered most of the issues you are having. It is important to understand each device will index Picts, music etc etc and this takes time. Changing settings will fix most of your concerns. I am sure others will comment but I just wanted to give you an immediate response. Cheers Colin

    For the thin unreadable writings, turn 'Bold text' on.

    Passcode is asked every time your iPad or iPhone locks.

    Is this true? Can it be prevented?

    If your iPad is connected to WiFi and is plugged into the charger, the update will automatically download but will not install. To actually install the update, you still have to manually tap the install button in order for the installation process to begin.

    Thanks, that's what I thought. I'll just steer clear of the "Install Now" button.

    To note, if your device's storage is under 3 GB, it won't automatically download even under the right conditions of wifi on and plugged in. So for those that want to steer dead clear of the update for any reason, clutter up your device with apps or just fill it up with some pictures until the 3 GB mark, and the download won't go through.

    I did not download the original 7 on my 4s. I noticed there was one "update" and it said it "had not been installed because (& I reversed the amount of storage needed in original post. The size of the patch is 3.1 GB) it requires 3.1 GB of storage." I am left with deleting or purchasing more storage. Also, prior update from IOS 5 to 6 was not my choice. I had not liked the map changes on first iPad, so I did not update either. Apple took charge & automatically updated 2nd ipad & iPhone first to 5, then to 6 and also my iphone this time, as I had uploaded & installed on both iPads & decided I'd rather keep 6 on my phone.
