Much has been built up about Apple's new operating system, the iOS 7, however, many Apple fans were ultimately left frustrated and disappointed on Wednesday when they ran into an error message telling them that their installation had failed.

Some have touted that the iOS 7 error message is simply a problem with too many people attempting to download the new version of Apple's operating system at the same time.

Apple users have been eagerly awaiting the release for their iPhones and iPads, and so many have attempted to download the software at the same time that it caused problems with Apple's servers, according to some sources.

The general advice has been that Apple users encountering the problem should simply wait it out and try again later when less users are attempting to download the software.

Here are some of the messages left on social media sites from frustrated users who have encountered the iOS 7 error message:
