So here is what’s really interesting about the update.

  • The upgrade was extremely simple (and OTA)
  • After the install, my iphone5 isn’t sluggish at all.
  • All my apps work
  • Many apps are already update to support the new iOS.

All of this may seem simple to you, but this is quite impressive.  Impressive on Apple’s behalf but as well as the developers.  Normally an upgrade occurs and apps don’t work and things are broken , etc.  Remember the iphone5 brought in a new screen.  One year later developers already have programmed for the iphone5 so it’s not a problem this time around.  Furthermore, many developers put the effort and time to make sure their product would run under iOS7 and in many cases support its new features.

Seriously think about this:  It is very impressive.

Remember upgrading your Windows and many applications or hardware devices wouldn’t work?  Sure it’s not a 1:1 comparison, but the idea is similar.  iOS7 has brought a new mentality towards preparing for a new system update.  Hopefully Android will take suit.
