Users finding it difficult to upgrade their iPhone and iPad devices to Apple Inc.’s new iOS7 mobile operating systems are inundating online Apple forums with their complaints.

While there are plenty of posts about successful downloads there are also many grievances that cover a wide range of issues from download difficulties to criticisms about the operating system’s user interface.

For example, some users are unaware of the changes Apple made to the UI which now requires you to swipe right to left to delete emails and no longer left to right.

One user concluded that iOS7 is a “collection of arbitrary changes that bring no new real functional advantage” over its previous version and that the latest interface is “just plain ugly.”

Some reported problems with accessing their Gmail accounts, another said that Notifications did not work after their iOS7 upgrade.

Some reported that their iPhone 5 froze and others said their iPhone 4S became inoperable after they installed iOS7.

Battery life was a contentious issue. Some users claimed that battery life of the devices was shortened after the upgrade to iOS7, while others said battery life actually improved.

    Not only are the icons ugly but the white interface againste the new font makes it washed out and hard to read. They reversed certain icons, start/stop from left to right now right to left. Even the keypad to dial the phone, or the calculater, things I rely on are white and terrible. I wish I had not upgraded to this new OS and I’m reconsidering my purchase of the 5s and will be shopping other smartphones looking for something better.

    There will always be those users that complain – no matter what is put in front of them. Download is good, works fine and interface is intuitive to learn in a matter of seconds simple differences.
    Get over it!

    I did not install on my iphone 5 or Ipad Retina but I did look at one from a colleague at work on his ipad …….. can’t say I am impressed at all.
    Am not a complainer just that I was expecting great strides from Apple as far the new iphones just released and IOS 7, in my view that did not happen. I have 2, 15.4 Macbook Pro (2007) and a new 13 Macbook Pro c/w retina and been through almost all ipads…. sold off old one and purchased new ones, skipped Mini version though.
    With all the Technology available, seems Apple is way behind for innovations, all this does improve earning numbers for last EOY quarter though for a while shares were dropping are below $500.
    Steve is dearly missed, hoping someone step in his shoes (not Tim) and move forward!!

    When you have a install base of 600,000,000 devices, a few dozen complaints on a forum are not a statistically significant data point. Nothing to see here…

    I have a battery pack that worked just fine on ioS6. Now when I hook up the battery pack I get a message that this device may not be supported by Apple and may not work on the device. Shame on Apple for sneaking in a applet that would force users to purchase their proprietary batter packs.
