    Apple has made iOS 7, the latest version of its mobile operating system, available for download a few moments ago. The iOS 7 can now be installed on the following compatible iOS devices: iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini or the 5th generation iPod Touch. You need to go to your device's settings menu, choose “general" and after that just select the software update option.​​

    You can choose to install iOS 7 as an over-the-air update or through iTunes, which has been recently updated to version 11.1 both on Windows and Mac OS X. And if you want to sync music, videos, and other content to your iOS device, then you’ll have to download it anyway.

    If you don’t know how iOS 7 looks and behaves, you might have a surprise as Apple's latest mobile OS version has had its user interface redesigned under the direct supervision of Jony Ive. You can let us know in the comments section what you think of it after you install it. Besides the big visual makeover, iOS 7 also comes with some new features like iTunes Radio, AirDrop sharing, ControlCenter, and improved card-style multitasking.

    It will be interesting to see how fast users decide to switch to the new iOS version, because some of them might be reluctant, at least initially, to try out such a steep change. Apple’s CEO himself, mister Tim Cook, has described iOS 7 as “the biggest change to iOS since the iPhone.”

    However, I’m confident that Jony Ive did a wonderful job, as always. Let us know your impressions regarding Apple’s new iOS 7.

    I am in the process of downloading on devices right now. 7 seems faster and I am using my iPad 2 at the moment.

    The IOS 7 update process is worse than Microsoft's updates. The update fails repeatedly in both the down load and verification processes. I have been working on updating for the last 3 hours and I am still not installed.

    Good luck folks!

    Microsoft has the fortune/misfortune of having rather blasé customers when it comes to updates. People update Windows whenever they get around to it. Hold in mind this isn't a typical update. It's a major iOS version update, like Windows XP to Windows 7 (notice how I skipped Vista?). The minor updates tend to be smoother.

    While not all Apple fans are 1st day updaters, there are a lot of us. It's not uncommon for over 50% iOS users to update within the first month.

    If you're frustrated wait a day, or even two. It will go much more smoothly.

    Whoa! I tend to get to it when I get to it. In fact, I plan to skip this one altogether - I'll update when I upgrade to the next gen of iPad.

    iCloud keychain was in the iOS 7 beta releases, but was removed from the Gold Master.

    Maybe they're waiting for OS X Mavericks, as Ludatyk said?

    iOS 7 blocks deactivation of your iPad or iPhone if it becomes lost or stolen. You may wish to reconsider doing the update. When "Find my iPad [or iPhone]" is on the deactivation process requires entry of your Apple ID and password. I wish I had had that when my iPad was stolen about six months ago.

    Never Trust a new iOS update - wait for a month before risking it

    I have never forgiven Apple for bricking my iPhone 3 by getting me to upgrade iOS and making my phone unusable (like many other people). No support from Apple and more inportantly NO way back except by Jailbreaking and cracking. I learned a very important lesson - Apple are only interested in selling new kit, if you are upgrading the software on an old device you are on your own.
    I'm going to wait for at least a month, then check this forum again before risking my iPhone 4s and iPad 2.

    The best way yo install the update is via iTunes. Backup your iPad and then download and install update. Simple and straight forward

    Updated both my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. Took a little while, but not all that long. Trying to figure out some things - like closing apps. I'm sure there is a lot to learn. I'm debating whether or not I want to upgrade my iPad 2. And I'm going to recommend that my husband not upgrade his iPhone 4 or iPad Mini!

    Closing apps is one of the more straightforward things...once someone tells you!

    Double click home button for multitasking, select app and swipe it up. Gone.
