Apple iOS 7 download problems have been reported by many users since the update was released on Wednesday. Not only have some users experienced problems downloading the iOS 7 platform, others are having trouble activating the download if it actually completes.
Glitches are pretty common with new mobile device reviews but that didn’t stop angry messages from Apple customers and the occasional Apple iOS 7 directed joke.
Slow download times have also been reported by some users who ultimately managed to activate the new mobile OS.
Apple has not yet responded to the iOS 7 download problems but users have had no problem chiming in:
At this rate, it would be faster to buy a new iPhone on Friday than wait for my current phone to download iOS 7. Is that Apple’s evil plan?
