As multiple PHP version is available in WHM now a days, therefore no need to worries while setting default PHP version to PHP 7 , initially for few days support staff work load will increase but after few days everything will be stable

We have moved to PHP 7 and noticed the differences immediatly. We tested HHVM before, but it wasn't stable enough at the time. We have had some small issues with PHP7, but nothing that couldn't be fixed in a few minutes. The issues that existed were basically from either bad coding, or deprecated code. For the codes that were fixed, the information was forwarded to the developer to include in the next updates.

I personally find PHP7 to be a form of comedy for the fact it's calling out bad and lazy coding. Themes and plugins coded properly work on any version of PHP. Other themes and plugins...look at the code the wrong way and things start breaking. A real "let's just throw codes together" and hope it works. Too many stories.

You are wrong. it is the same situation like when Smarty code changed and it meant WHMCS had to almost re write their software in version 6 to work with the new code.

Nothing to do with bad or lazy coding, just the coding changed, so plugins etc. had to be altered to work with PHP7, if plugins etc. were not altered they it through up errors as the coding was changed

It's just like the code changes from a mysql connect statement and a mysqli connection statement.

There's nothing inherently wrong with the code developed for a specific version, and it *MAY* work on later versions, but in the case of PHP 7, there was a LOT of rewriting. Code developed for older versions using calls for depreciated or removed sections of PHP are going to break.

Programs written for Windows 95 may not work on Windows 10 (I'd go so far as to say MANY programs don't).

We've been doing a TON of updates for new clients to get them on board with PHP 7.

As Terry said, nothing to do with laziness of a programmer.

SIDE NOTE
Yoast, one of the more popular plugins for WordPress, has started a campaign called WHIP. You can install their package on your server as an encouragement to users to upgrade - https://github.com/Yoast/whip

Yoast will also be updating their software with a big warning to users encouraging them to contact their host to upgrade, or move web hosting companies. They will then push a list of recommended hosts to move to.

if you haven't prepared for this, now is the time!

I have already rolled out PHP 7.1 on all of my websites. No issues at all using popular scripts like Wordpress, XenForo, Plesk and more!
Decent performance increase, too.
