      You need to retake English class. The title is grammatically correct.

        Any one who went to school would know that Iwhve is correct. Devices ARE not devices IS. IOS 7 comes after the verb so the verb has to be plural to go with devices and not singular.

    As long as they don’t cripple the older devices. Annoying when there is a new major release, and the older gear is no longer supported, or updated… Then they seeming just stop working altogether. I understand no new stuff, but when you can’t even continue to run apps, it becomes an issue. The hardware still functions, but the app developers then develop beyond and out of functionality. Bad form.

    Reason why I hate apple: They want you to change devices at leas every 1.5 years the create new upgrades and totally neglect the old devices this just sucks. I changed to android 1 year ago and its been awesome. I have a note1 which android still bring out updates for I am currently running the latest android os on my note 1 apple sucks as far as I am concerned even bbm is not coming out for ios5 apple sucks

      I know that really, REALLY, sucks. i have an iPad 3 so this will be the last iOS compatiable with it, so if I want iOS 8 next year I should probably go buy an iPad Mini 2 or an iPhone 5, which sucks because I can’t. But I guess Apple doesn’t make it compatiable with older devices because it makes the old device slower using new software. I know this because when I downloaded iOS 5 for my iPad a year ago, it became much slower.

    You guys need to update your devices. Tons of features and quickness you guys are missing out on. And android phones sux. Too lagy and always fighting a virus.
