Are you saying in IOS 7 you can block calls? This is my #1 reason to jailbreak. You wouldn't believe how many calls per day I get on my cell phone while at work asking me to switch electricity suppliers. It's ridiculous. With iBlacklist I got my phone back.

If I have this functionality in IOS7 then I can't wait to try it!

 

Yep,  it works. What it's really doing however is just sending the calls directly to voicemail. If someone leaves a message, you do NOT get the visual voicemail but it still sits in your voicemail box if you care to retrieve using the phone number. I tried it today and it works great. It also blocks text messages.

That works for me. In iBlacklist I have my blacklisted number receive a "fast busy" signal. However 99% of those telemarketers don't leave a message anyway. I know I could change my number, but there's cost involved as well as giving out a new number to everyone.

Really I think that's the only reason I jailbreak. iOS 7 will be a nice change to try stock for awhile. Looking forward to it. Thanks for the confirmation on that feature.

I've been "blacklisting" since iOS5 without jailbreaking.  Get a silent ringtone, setup a contact called "blacklist" and set it for your silent ringtone and no vibration.  Whenever someone calls that you don't want to talk to just add them to the "blacklist" contact.   Sure, the screen still lights up but you don't hear or feel the phone ring.

The only issue is that it doesn't work with text messaging right?

If you don't get calls from folks not in your address book, you can also put the phone in "Do Not Disturb" mode, but allow exceptions for everyone you will take calls from.

iBlacklist is by far the best "call block" tool. I love the fact that you can set it to get busy signal for those unwanted telemarketers. it does not leave a trace of block calls. no voicemail, no entry on the missed call log, no nothing, is like they never called

Can someone tell me if iOS 7 allows you to copy and paste Calendar appointments? That's my biggest complaint with the Calendar.

Not that I can see, Merg.

 

Also, still no easy way to schedule a custom repeat appointment (every 3 weeks, e.g.). You either have to schedule it on a sync'd Google calendar, or with Siri.

Yeah, I don't use repeat appointments. Because my schedule changes so much, I just put in everything manually. I guess I'll continue to use Calendar+. They have a neat way of copying and pasting appointments.

Are you able to pick default apps for certain things, such as a web browser, mail, calendar? I thought that the release info hinted at that. Also, does the Control Center have a quick option for turning Personal Hotspot on and off?

Thanks.

Unfortunately no on both counts, at least as far as I can tell.

 

Control Center has shortcuts for Airplane Mode, WiFi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb and Lock on the top row.

 

Flashlight, Alarms, Calculator and Camera on the bottom row.

 

In between, top to bottom, is a brightness slider, music player progress bar, music player trickplay and music player volume control.

 

As far as default apps, there was no obvious section for this in Settings. I also checked the Safari settings, and there was no "make this the default browser" setting. :shrug:

 

I'll try installing Chrome now to see if it has a "make default" setting.

I believe you can now tell Google apps to default to other Google apps under iOS. Maybe that's what you saw? If so, that works now with iOS 6, IIRC.

 

EDITED TO ADD: Just re-installed Gmail and saw this:

That's not too surprising, since iOS 7 is in beta...  I expect a lot of things are crashing under that.

The funny thing is, it was fine until the Tapatalk fix was put in place with the speed issues. I'll take the crashing :)

 

Going to see if a reboot does it though.

That actually makes a kind of sense...  probably something in the newer stuff that isn't yet compatible with iOS7...  I don't know how far away iOS7 is from being a real-world thing... maybe a few months?  Usually there are a bunch of app updates around the time a new iOS goes live... ours will probably be one of those once iOS7 gets nailed down more.

Right, no one is going to update their app publicly until probably Fall.

If you haven't already, check your iOS 7 devices for a software update. Beta 3 is out. :up:
