Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Wasn't going to go for the 7 this year because of the rumours circling about a potentially big change to next years models. I've been back and forth between iOS and Android and am currently on Android but was considering a change with next year. If the audio jack is missing from next years model too then they can sod off. Using an adaptor sounds like an awful idea and I hate wireless audio for what it does to the sound quality.

I seriously hope this heavily damages their sales of the 7 so that they reconsider things for next year.

IOS 10 is kind of dogshit. Why in the hell did they think it was a good idea to break the control centre (swipe up) into two pages so now to get to music controls you have to swipe up and then left. Might seem like a small thing but its so damn annoying. If you were on music controls last time a swipe up brings those back up.... which means you have to then swipe right to get to the "quick" camera buttons (not so quick now!) and everything else. It shows very little extra info than on IOS9 and with the advent of stupidly big phones theres even less need for this. Oh wait, they tripled the size of the button that puts it into night colours mode, fuck yeah! Also they changed the colour scheme of the dock to be real tacky (blue and grey). The widgets are a mess but more useful than they were before..

The good things? Music no longer pauses when you open the camera app like it did for all of IOS9, it only pauses when you switch to video mode now as it did pre IOS9. You can also finally delete apple apps (stocks, iBooks etc...). Thats really about it unless smilies, font size in messages and fireworks from yahoo circa 2003 are your bag.

"Biggest IOS release ever" yeah... only because all other IOS releases are contained there in so it has to be even though the additions are kind of shockingly bad. Screwed with stuff that worked fine and added some crap just to say they added some crap.

This review is just plain weird.

"The iconic iPhone home button is no longer a physical button, but instead a sophisticated ballet of pressure sensors and haptic vibration motors that simulate the feel of a button"

A sophisticated ballet? :lol:

Basically you put your finger on it and it vibrates a bit.
