Has anyone seen the performance? I don't know when it's coming to Canada.

The Apple site says "Coming this Fall"... the wait continues.

Been running the developer preview on my iPhone 4. It's pretty sweet, love the new UI, but it lags the phone. Hopefully it's better on the 4s and 5.

How about battery usage? How does it compare on the iPhone 4 running 6.1.3?

May be just an early beta that will get better over time.
I thought perhaps the more graphically minimalistic UI may make things snappier!

still playing catch up with android and mimics UI of WP8 now, kinda funny..but yes, very pretty. I moved from the iPhone after the 4S....felt so bored. Much happier with my android (HTC One) and Windows Phone (Lumia 920)

Here's an article that sort of debunks my theory.

The Control Center seems like it will make changing basic settings a bit easier. But I wonder if the 4 buttons at the bottom will be customizable, it looks like they're pre set to flashlight, timer, calculator and camera.

I'm considering installing the iOS7 beta on my iPhone 4. Do I want the GSM or the CDMA file? I know nothing about that kind of stuff...

Good question, it may depend on who is your mobile provider, did you type your question in Google?

I'm with Telus Mobility. I asked Telus about it and they said I have an HSPA phone, but, again, I don't know a lot about phone types.

Go with the GSM one then if you're with TELUS

Yup you want the GSM one. The CDMA ones are for some Americans. 

 

Anyways I have it installed on a 4S and it feels, well it feels different that's for ure. The miltitasking is a direct copy of Windows Phone. The control pannel feels like something out of Android but other than that it feels a lot fresher. It is slow on the 4S right now because it is a beta and should be faster for release. But in all I think it is great and shows the amount of work you can pull off in like 6 months.

Battery usage isn't too bad. Not much changes.
