    Hey guys I am one among the frustrated users of iOS 7.1 . To me it's one of the worst updates to iOS since iOS 7.0. Here are a few things Apple broke with iOS 7.1

    -Photos app freezing sometimes.

    -Animations are fast but still have very little stutter (not as good as iOS 6)

    -Phone lags with SIM CARD inside and 3G ON!


    Solution: Fixed it by switching to a carrier with a short name. Try it.

    -Data icon is almost always spinning when at the homescreen


    -Battery has become worse since iOS 7.0 . iOS 7.1 "Upgrades" this problem.

    -Touch ID is Okay.. Nothing improved. Still get failures often.

    -Swiping messages from lockscreen leads to crash

    I think apple should fix all these ASAP. As the sole reason that made me buy iPhone was that it had almost no critical bugs.. But this is just unacceptable.

    I have absolutely none of these problems. Maybe you should have your phone looked at. My 5S is almost perfect on 7.1

    Your video music is fun.
    SoundHound couldn't locate it.

    What is the title?

    1) Never happened to me. In fact, none of Apple's apps have crashed yet (even Safari).

    2) Hm, no stutter for me. Smooth as butter.

    3) Er...?

    4) Animations don't slow down, the fact is you're now used to the speed. Also, they are now the perfect speed for me.

    5) Look at Location Services and see what you have enabled, for me, no issues.

    6) Battery life is A LOT better for me. It obviously depends on usage etc.

    7) Finally, Touch ID has again improved a lot.

    For me 7.1 was a fantastic update. Do what other are saying, a Full Restore.

    No problems for me and iOS 7.1 actually has improved the speed.

    Actually the 7.1 fixed the system crash problem of my Retine Mini, but it seems the battery uses quicker.:eek:

    iOS 7.1 was the best point update ever! Animations are way faster and TouchID works 99,9% and overall system performance is almost perfect.

    So, I don't know what you have done to your iPhone but it must be an individual problem. If all of your problems are still present after you set it up as a new iPhone go to an Apple Store and get it replaced with a new unit.

    iTunes Match broke on 7.1

    It royally screwed up iTunes Match. I am regularly getting double entries and often a track will come up with a cloud icon when it tries to play.

    On LTE it's not a big deal, but on a plane, this sucks quite a bit.

    I like your iPhone theme in your video.
    What is the name of it?

    I have noticed none of the OPs problems, in fact 7.1 gets a gold star from me.

    OP maybe you should do a DFU restore. Something is not right.

    I saw some posts with the data icon problem.. I don't know if the problems are model specific. My model is A1457.

    And yeah, I did do a DFU install and restored my contents manually instead of using a backup.

    can't say I have found any of those bugs yet on my iPhone 5 and haven't seen any since 7.1 beta (that's since November 2013).

    I never OTA update my phone unless it's a very minor update like 7.1.0 to 7.1.1
    I always download it and install via iTunes and do a full restore.

    7.1 has fewer bugs than I remember on 6.1. I guess I'm lucky, Apple sent me special stable software.

    Data spinner seems to be there for some for some reason but a simple restart of the phone usually gets rid of it.

    Sounds like a hardware issue to me. My 5s is working great.

    No, it's software.
    The first time I did a clean install, I had the constantly spinning data wheel. A hard reset cured it.
    The second time I did a clean install, the spinning wheel issue wasn't there, and nor was it on the third clean install (attempts to cure other issues by the way).

    Only thing I can relate to is the data spinner, and that went away after a while and a reboot.

    I am waiting for iOS 7.1.1 to fix these minor but annoying issues. It's definitely not hardware.

    I don't know if this is legit but it seems iOS 7.1.1 is coming soon

    That account doesn't seem to be connected to Apple or would really know anything about upcoming updates, so while iOS 7.1.1 might very well be coming at some point, it's not likely anyone out there really knows when that will be or what will be part of it (aside from someone from Apple who might know, but wouldn't be spreading that information).

    x.y.z (bug-fix) releases almost never contain new features and almost never have betas associated with them, so that alone would likely make quite a bit of what's posted by that account fairly questionable.
