    Hi all,
    Downloaded the new IOS 7 yesterday and have had nothing but problems since. Firstly I noticed that there was no background colour, just glaring white, very tiring on the eyes. My home screen & lock screen changed. When I try to set a photo for my lock screen it will not scale. Certain features are missing, Airdrop for example. The worst problem is the camera. It will not change from square, the only feature on there that I can use is the HDR, whatever that means. I can toggle that on or off but cannot toggle video or camera. I will send some screen shots later but for the moment I only want my old system back. This IOS 7 has not downloaded correctly and now I am stuck. Some help will be very much appreciated.
    Mike

    I find it very bright too but to counteract this I have lowered the brightness and I'm finding it fine now.

    I didn't have any issues with my home or lock screens so maybe someone else can help here.

    As for the camera, see if this helps.....

    Thanks, Gabriel, the touching and sliding works. It is still difficult but at least I can now move between video and camera. I too reduced the brightness but white is a poor choice for a background screen. I was almost blinded when I first saw it, ha, ha.

    As for Airdrop, have you opened the Control Centre (swipe up from bottom of the scree) to see if it's listed.....

    I now find I cannot change my App Store location. I am in the US at present and have an account there but when I try to change store, it will not accept my id. I even tried to reset this and although I am told an email has been sent, it has never arrived. I have checked and double checked my id details. I truly wish I had not upgraded to IOS. I find that Airdrop is not available anyway on iPad 3. One of my apps would not accept my password after the upgrade which has caused a problem. No point in upgrading if a lot of features are unavailable. This is the first time I have felt let down by Apple and just want my old OS back. Is there any way is can do this without jail breaking?

    Hi Mike......I haven't upgraded as yet, but I can see many are not very happy with that glaring white background.

    Have a look at this thread, Twerppoet has an interesting post here (no. 94 in the thread). A wallpaper may help you. If you go down to his next post (no, 97) he has included a link also.

    Also doing a reset of your iPad may just help also if you are experiencing problems....it's a good idea after any update

    Hope it helps! :).

    I just did the delta update through the Settings App, quick and painless.......a bottle of Jacob's Creek Shiraz makes it even less painless and even more fun!

    Lol....sounds good.....may just do the mini! I'm holding out for a JB on my 2 for when the 5 arrives!

    And Jacobs Creek, that's a very popular wine here! Well I guess it should be!!

    I even have a couple of bottles myself! ;)

    Great to see you here again!
    Airdrop is not available for iPads 1 - 3, only 4 and mini, as far as I know.

    Thanks, Leelai, done the reset and everything. Still having issues. Is there a way to go back to my former IOS 6? I really can't be bothered to keep fighting what appears to be a losing battle. Sorry, but so frustrated at the moment, especially with losing my old settings and not being able to access certain apps.

    Thanks, J. A. Missed you guys but having a lot of serious issues with the new IOS. If I had known it would be this much trouble, I wouldn't have bothered upgrading especially when certain features are not available.

    I'm afraid not Mike, once upgraded, it's a done deal.

    Have a look to see if there are updates available for those apps.....all apps are updated to run on the new system. Try deleting them and reinstalling if you need to.

    So sorry you are experiencing all this. Must be so frustrating!!

    I tried to use it yesterday on my iPad 3, until my son found out that it's for iPad 4 and mini only.

    Here's a suggestion ( I saw it solved another member's issues):
    Do you have a recent backup? If so, try to reset everything (Settings - General - Reset - Erase all Content and Settings) and set it up as new/restore it from your backup.
