Last Wednesday was a huge day for iOS users, as it was the first time for most of them to experience iOS 7. It was obvious there were going to be download problems because of servers being overwhelmed, but there were also iOS 7 install issues even after downloading. However, once installed it seems as though iPad owners who upgraded to the new software have been hit hard because there have been a number of issues for them.
iOS 7 update issues hit iPad — Whenever there is a new upgrade a huge percentage of iOS users seem to give it a while and would rather wait it out until the first patch appears because of there always being problems, and looking on the Apple Support Communities shows the iPad has been hit hard.
While this does not surprise us, we have to wonder why Apple never learns from the months of beta versions because some of these issues had been pointed out by devs during the development process.
There are several iPad problems with iOS 7, but not the original model because this is not supported. Owners of the newer iPads have been looking on Apple Support Communities for an answer, such as several people saying their iPad 4 has slowed down since upgrading to iOS 7. Most times a reset will resolve the issue, but if not resting all settings and then installing the new OS and your back-up should be able to fix this.
We also see there are some iPad Wi-Fi issues with iOS 7, although turning your router off for a minute should be able to eradicate this issue. Another is that the camera just shows a blank screen, even after performing a reset. This is a strange one and as yet there is no word from Apple if this is a major issue, although with the lack of users coming forward we believe this to be an isolated issue.
Other iOS 7 update issues on the iPad include missing App Store, slow charging, iMessage and Facetime not working, battery drain and cellular service not working. Again, we need to remind you that in many cases such issues will arise, and so here are a few instruction that should help resolve them. If not then we guess you will have to wait for the release of the first iOS 7 update, although there has already been one, but this was just for the iPhone 5S and 5C.
