iOS 7 - Before you upgrade...
So it's upon us: iOS 7!
Major upgrade. And here some very basic tips.
This isn't about the pros and cons, mind you. Just a handful of reminders for those
new to the upgrade thing.
a) Your device is jailbreaked. If you decide to upgrade to iOS 7, you will lose jailbreak in the process. There is no guarantee iOS 7 will get a jailbreak solution any time soon. (DO NOT believe any ads that say differently!!!!)
If you decide jailbreak beats latest OS, make sure you get all the latest app updates asap!!! Chances are that many apps are quickly updated to the new iOS 7 look! And they may require iOS 7!
B) If your iDevice is not jailbreaked, back it up via iTunes BEFORE you update to the new OS! After the update restore your device from the latest backup. For both processes connect your iThing to iTunes. On the left of the iTunes window you will see your device - right click and you'll see the various backup-related options.
Even if you backed up a jailbreaked device, you can restore it after upgrading to iOS 7. Everything will be correctly restored except, of course, anything jailbreak-related, Cydia apps etc...
There, just the very basics.
I thought I should throw this out because iOS is a fairly big change and some people who haven't upgraded before will take the plunge.
