So this old lady that volunteers with me at the local NDP party asked me to fill up her new iPod with a bunch of music (I think its an iPod Touch 5th gen, the MD717C/A). So I did, but now it's downloading an IOS 7 update (without my permission, or any way to cancel it. Thanks for interrupting my Netflix streaming on another computer, Apple!). I know absolutely nothing about Apple products, because I avoid them with a passion. It took me about an hour just to figure out how to copy music to it (what's wrong with the drag-and-drop mass storage device method that every other mp3 player uses?!). She's a 70 year old woman, and she didn't know how to download music, or even that a thing called "itunes" existed - not trying to be mean, just trying to give you an idea of her technical expertise.
So should I go through with the update? Will the general OS and buttons and app layout look the same, specifically the music app? Would it be difficult and confusing for her to learn? For example, I wouldn't recommend that an old lady who knew how to use Windows 7 to upgrade to Windows 8; it requires quite a bit of re-learning and time and investment. Is it just as much of a jump to go from IOS 6 to IOS 7? Or should I just stick with IOS 6, and disable wifi completely, since that seems to be the only way to stop it from upgrading itself?
