    I installed it earlier & I want to downgrade to iOS 6. Simple texting cn't keep up with my texting speed like iOS 6 can, & also navigating through my iPhone & closing out multitask apps in the menu. It lags! The speed cant keep up with iOS 6. I'm slowly moving toward Android. iOS7 looks like Android & I feel like its helping me get use to Android, not stay with Apple. I mean the speed of everyday navigating through my iPhone is horrible on iOS7. Why is Apple failing at so many things lately? I know it's still in Beta but cmon, speed is a fix that they can solve in a day. It's already close to the Golden Master release. They shouldve fixed this by now. This is so frustrating. I already miss iOS6.

    You said you know it's a beta, but the rest of your post contradicts that.

    That's what I have and it works a dream. Sounds like you may want todo a fresh install? I've always OTA'd but this May speed things up.

    You're having a way different experience than me. My iPhone 5 on iOS 7 destroys my gf's iPhone 5 on iOS 6. Try a restore.

    That's YOUR experience...and probably because you didn't do the proper beta loading sequence. Runs PERFECTLY on my iPhone with zero lag.....iPad 2 is a different story. :rolleyes: Still smooth, but apps crash on occasion and lock up the device. No such issues on my phone though. Love it.

    Clean restore with iCloud backup of b6 will kill 99% of the problems. Can't say I've even had a glitch since the latest update.

    I call crap. You posted the same thing after installing iOS6. Since you've decided to move to Samsung is this thread supposed to be your parting gift?

    All of the betas up until now was slow. Which is why I chose to delete it from my iPhone 5.

    So, I will probably download the Grand Master.

    If he were a developer he'd know it's a beta...

    I'm a developer for a firm. I did a fresh install. iOS7 lags. I want it to be fast but it cant keep up with a fast texting speed. Now I'm stuck with this operating system until I can find a downgrade firmware. Damn.

    Ok... Then downgrade and wait until iOS 7 is released to the public in September.

    I didn't post to be made fun of, I posted to make an issue aware that needs fixing. I'm not mad. Just frustrated that they take forever to fix little things. Remember iOS 6 beta & how Apple Maps was horrible but they released it to the public with it being that horrible? I bet they release this one with it being slow.

    If you were a competent developer you'd know how to downgrade. You haven't even stated if you did a clean install or upgrade from an older OS. I don't trust you.

    Have you used iOS 4.0 on an iPhone 3G?

    You need to report the problem to Apple, not to MR. Nobody on here can fix the issue.

    There's nothing to fix. This is not a released product. How hard is this to understand?

    It's almost out of beta. Shouldn't have too many problems. I'm pretty tired of the "beta excuse" when it's only a few weeks out from being deployed. Oh well. Keep saying it. We don't really need to acknowledge anything is wrong. :rolleyes:

    He's right in all respects.

    Don't fool yourselves that iOS 7 actually runs faster than iOS 6. I had to restore back to 6.1.4 temporarily and immediately noticed that my phone responded faster , and this is coming from me using beta 6 WHICH is supposed to be the LAST beta.

    Don't believe me? Go back to 6.1.4/6.1.3 and try it. There is a difference regardless if you want to notice it or not.

    Obviously there is something to be fixed. Maybe he isn't a developer and wants a developer here to report it. You basically contradict yourself though when you say there's nothing to fix, but that it's not a released product yet.....It's not released because there's things to fix.
