“New lease on life or death sentence? iOS 7 on the iPhone 4”

I’m afraid of my dad upgrading his iPhone 4 to iOS7 and then complaining that it’s too slow, and then having to explain that there’s no going back. This is just how it is now.

Ars attributes some of that slowness to animations that are too long, but slow is slow no matter if it’s because of hardware or software.
