You Might Want to Wait Before Updating Some Devices to iOS 7
John Pearce's insight:

This is useful advice, (which is repeated in a couple of other places as well), which actually makes quite a lot of sense because even though the X.0 releases have generally been put through a thorough Beta testing regime it is only once this version has been shaken out and the X.0.1 version arrives that things really settle down.
