Anybody have any views on the new version? Have been using android for ages but after using an ipad almost daily for work im being more and more tempted to complete the set with the iphone when contract renewal date comes around

I like how iOS 7 looks, but after using a Nexus 4, the iPhone's screen just seems far too narrow for some reason.

I can hear the noise of a few million dribbling imbeciles. I'm not sure what the onomatopoeia is for that, but it's in the air.

Hope IOS7 has improved from it's bloody awful beta look. Will slap it on an iPad when I get a chance.
The whole thing so far has gotten a very "Meh" response; nothing really new, they're pushing the 64bit thing a little too far (it's not new, it's not the first etc, contrary to what many fanbois believe) if it's even necessary, but I can't really judge that. It's more of the same, it'll sell like hotcakes despite it's "WHUT?" price. And people will happily spend beyond their means to have the "latest and greatest."
And yeah, it's a lovely word isn't it? Not used nearly often enough! It rolls off the tongue in speech

Are there any other 64-bit SoC's that are already in smartphones?

No idea. ARM were touting theirs in 2011 and had workable devices mid 2012. Dunno (and don't care) if any made it into devices. Wouldn't surprise me if various knockoff jobs from China have been for years.
There has been 64bit arch processors I remember from circa 2007/8 but buggered if I can find any info on them. Nokia were sniffing around them around the time of the n95 I think.

IOS 7 looks like it will have some useful improvements but I'm still struggling to find a reason to upgrade my iphone 4S (unless Apple nerf the performance of it with the new OS upgrade!)
I think Apple is aiming way too high price-wise with the 5c. Especially when Google are poised to bring out their new Nexus 5 for nearly half the price! IMO they really need something closer to the £300 mark to tempt people away from the mid-range Android smartphones. £470 is silly money for last years iPhone in a garish plastic case!
It would be crazy not to just stump up another £80 and buy the 5S instead

@Arthur - airdrop shows as not working with the 3rd gen ipad but the 3rd gen only had a slightly slower cpu and a lightening connector so why not with the 3rd gen ipad ?

Perhaps it's due to the WiFi hardware not supporting both ad-hoc and managed networks simultaneously (like it was with the OS X version of AirDrop). Either that, or Apple want you to buy another iPad.
