    If I update from version 6 to 7, is there a chance that some of my apps may no longer work on the new version?

    I'd like to update in order to access a new app I downloaded, but not if it means that several other apps will cease functioning.

    No, that will not happen. Most apps have an update for iOS 7 support a few days after the iOS new version release. All your apps will work normally. :)

    Mostly true, but there have been rare cases where someone has an older game or app that's never been updated, and won't work. By rare cases I mean one visitor/member who was extremely distressed a few months ago. The games were very old, and iPhone games to boot; but that does happen.

    @GAMESHARQ

    If you have a game or app you absolutely can not do without, go to the App Store, find that /those apps, and check:

    1) What iOS versions they list as being compatible.
    2) When was the last update.
