This afternoon, Apple's iOS 7 update became available to millions of people across the globe. This meager description is what they saw:
You see, iOS 7 is pretty different from iOS 6.
This took some people by surprise.
And naturally, some were a little perplexed...
So you can imagine their surprise when these folks were blindsided by a whole new iPhone...
It happened everywhere. Without warning.
They never saw it coming...
First there was classic denial.
...followed by anger.
A little bargaining...
Then depression set in.
And at long last, the bitter pill of acceptance.
