iOS 7 is live, and, as we’ve recently learned from our poll, most users can’t wait to experience Apple’s latest and greatest. However, first, you have to own a compatible device. The list includes the iPhone 4 and 4S (partially), as well as the iPhone 5 (full support) — in addition to the 5C and 5S that will have iOS 7 installed out-of-the-box. Tablet compatibility includes iPad 2 and 3 (partially), as well as the iPad 4 (full support), in addition to the iPad mini.
Second, as usual with major Apple software updates, you’ll have to have a lot of patience. Everyone will be slamming the “Check for Updates” button at the same time. In case you manage to get through with your connection attempt, your download might be slow. Apple servers are usually overloaded. You’ll get through eventually, but, despite the fact that iOS 7 is live, you might want to wait until tomorrow to install (but we won’t blame you if you can’t).
