    Since updating my iPhone 5S to 7.1, there is lag in launching apps. For example when i press an app, the icon darkens for a second and then launches.

    This problem did not exist before 7.1. I hoped for a fix with 7.1.1 but it has not been fixed.

    What i have noticed is that this lag happens when my iPhone is connected to cellular data. If i switch my phone to airplane mode, this lag disappears completely. I haven't found a fix yet. My iPad air on 7.1 is very fast and it's on wifi only.

    Did anyone else notice this problem? I hope someone can help.

    It's because of a long carrier name. What's you carrier name?

    Is there a fix?

    Definitely causing the problem. I don't know why it causes it to act like it does, I just know it does.

    Read pages 2 and 3 of this thread. Many people have the same issue.

    update

    This bug remains in ios 8 beta 2

    And yes it is caused by long carrier name logo

    half sec lag before opening every single app since ios 7.1 :apple:

    This is very disappointing.

    We heard rumors before 2-3 weeks about 7.1.2 and i hoped for a fix. Still not 7.1.2 and the problem still exists in iOS 8.

    If any of you are developers, please report it to Apple as this is a very serious bug.

    iPhone 3G users also have app launch lag, it does happen on some devices. I noticed my 4s has this on iOS 8 beta but on iOS 7 apps open instantly.

    I wouldn't class it as a 'serious' bug, but I can see how annoying it may be.

    amm, no,
    this is actually a VERY serious bug


    If you stackwatch the phone you will see that constantly many system processes crash on the background as well**(thus causing the lag)

    this among other implications has a very bad effect on you battery cycles.

    Furthermore unlike other bugs/crashes that occur every now or never. this occurs 24 /7

    hard to get any worse.

    It was probably Zeppelin (Available from Cydia).
