How about putting the lightning bolt BACK into the battery icon so we don't have to look so hard to see that it's charging? I can only imagine the debates on moving it....


Green = charging
Black = in use (not plugged)
Red = low

Am I missing something?

You will probably be out of luck....word on the street is to NOT add iOS7 to the 4, and perhaps not the 4S. Time to step up to a 5S!

BTW, the update is not showing up on the east coast....any luck out there?


The 4S is running iOS7 almost as good as iPhone5.

Lame... Where's the love for previous iPhones lagging when screen rotates?


I think this fix takes priority for obvious reasons...
