So I finally upgraded to iOS 7 on my iPhone this past weekend.
“Really?” my husband asked, with ^that^ same quizzical look on his face.
I’m not the type to immediately jump on the new and shiny things. I wait a while to check it out. My reasoning is this: I don’t care how big a company’s testing group is, once your product finally gets released to the masses, there are bound to be some bugs or flub-ups. I wait until all the commotion dies down and the bugs have been fixed, after the initial updates have been sent out, so when I finally DO upgrade I can enjoy one smooth, seamless transition.
And I thought everything went well…The update installed quickly, all my contacts and calendar info was transferred successfully, and I immediately noticed how “pretty” the new update looked. Another thing I noticed was that my phone was quiet. For a day and a half. That doesn’t normally happen. I am the type that’s always getting a text message or mail alert or game alert, with maybe an actual phone call sprinkled in somewhere. 🙂 But for a day and a half, my phone was absolutely silent. I was baffled.
I was a bit reluctant to say something to my husband, because since he upgraded to iOS 7 MONTHS ago, he’s experienced problems with his music files on his iPhone. I didn’t want my phone to be acting janky also, because that meant both of us would have had to take a trip to the Apple Store. And we all know what kind of trap that is…I dare you to walk into an Apple store and come out empty-handed. You just can’t. It hurts your phyche.
It wasn’t until my husband called me that I realized what was going on. My phone vibrated like normal, but there was no sound. Then it hit me – my phone had somehow gotten turned to silent mode and had been that way for the last day and a half!
Yes, that was me, my friends. Face. In. Palm. I mean, how could I have missed THAT?
