Apple today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

Impressive.

Android users cry because they can't update,
iPhone users cry because they don't want to update.

What a strange planet we live on!

I haven't encountered any iOS 7 bugs so far. I'm aware of the lock screen bypass one.

One of my best friends has a rare genetic disorder that causes her vision to be bad. iOS 6 was a joy to use for her, with lots of contrast and clearly defined clickable areas.

iOS 7, not so much. She simply cannot use it.

I'm not sure if genetic defects count as OS bugs.

But I was wondering myself why Apple didn't offer an option to select the visual presentation. They could even sell extra skins or open it up for developers to create their own.

It's not exactly an original idea, but I think a lot of users would welcome it.

Apple must have known in advance that their new UI design was controversial, but they provided no alternatives or any options to at least relieve the annoyance some people may have somewhat.

Your friend can find some, perhaps helpful, options under settings -> general -> accessibility.

The difference between bugs and features is often subtle; anyway, in iOS 7 Apple somewhat adjusted its device identification API yet again (in particular, apps cannot access MAC address any more). Apple has never recommended that vendors should use MAC addresses for device identification, but for vendors the decision always depends on technicalities.

For now, users of a few popular games complain that their progress is dropped to zero. Non-game apps are also affected.

Depending on your point of view, you can blame either Apple (e.g. for not advertising their changes actively enough as it was in case of UDIDs) or 3d party vendors, but the result is the same - users suffer. We will see soon how big the problem is.

How good for you, because iPhone4 is barely running iOS7.
