    Should I leave installing iOS 7 onto my iPhone 4 as I think it will really slow it down, or am I wrong ??

    Hard to tell since it hasn't been released yet. In general thought, yes, it might tax your device more than other devices but it is supported which signals that it's useable.

    Like Van said it's not out yet but the latest version of 6 is quite smooth on my old 3GS.

    You might consider waiting a few weeks to upgrade - at least until there are a few online tutorials on how to "downgrade" back to iOS6. Never hurts to be able to revert if needed. I have a iP4 (not an iP4S) and will likely wait a bit to be safe.

    I'm using iOS7 GM on my iPhone 4. For an old phone it surprisingly does work well with the hardware it has. I have no need for a new iphone at this stage, and will continue use this one as does well for what I use it for.

    The eye candy is pretty much disabled for the iphone 4 (because of the hardware), but it does run well. Have tested it out for day to day use browsing emailing, tweeting, face booking and writing basic meeting agenda documents for my business, and it does surprisingly well.

    The animations are a bit slow and there is an occassion lag especially when I type fast, but really it's nothing for me to complain about. So overall I am really enjoying the iOS7 experience on my iPhone.

    Of course though it's so much better on the iPad 4 though.

    Also XJ-Linux, if Apple says that you can't revert back to iOS6 having installed the GM or the public version later on, what makes you think that people can do jail breaking to do that? I might be living a sheltered life here, so I may be a bit you know..what's the word "naive".

    If Apple says it can not be done , it generally can not be done. Yeah?

    Installed iOS7 on my 4S yesterday and it runs very smoothly so far. I really like the "simplistic" look of it. Looks way cleaner than all previous iOS versions.

    Who knows. I can only speculate based on past observations. Generally, within a few weeks of just about every iOS version to date, there is some brave soul who has found a way to revert back using an old iOS ipsw image and a few scripts packaged in a .dmg. These folks apparently never get the news from Apple that it is "now, this time, really super impossible to revert". Anyhow, I usually wait until then to take the plunge. Maybe this time will be different. I doubt it.

    three8one: in the real world, that means its not out yet. What you mean to say is that you pirated the GM.

    I think I will listen for a bit before I install it on my iphone 4. It won't take long after the release for complaints to start if it is not going well. I'm such a believer in Apple anymore if they say it will work I'm sure it will. But I don't want to slow the phone down as I like the current speed. As I just got two new iphone 4's for .99 each. So I'm going to wait and see what turns up. Have to say I love this phone so much more than I did my Android.

    I have a friend who has GM running and he let me see it running on his iPhone 5, - in short it's very Android looking.

    The first thing i thought of was Samsung, it was however lightning quick and we'll just get used to it, in my opinion of course.

    I don't think the new layout reminds me of anything out there maybe its the toned down icons on a semi 3D
    look but to my eyes they made it look different.
