Hot flashes you say?Since last update I have noticed my iPhone 5 getting uncomfortably hot sometimes, when it even has moderate usage like browsing in safari. This probably doesn't have good effect on battery life as well. Someone experiencing this?
This is why I never update until Apple releases a 7.1.X update. There's typically always issues on the initial release of a big update.experiencing the same right now. I use safari for 10 mins, 5 mins call, and 2 mins to send a message; the phone gets hot and sucks 10-12% battery. 7.1 makes me charge my phone at least twice in a day!
Android has its own flaws, as do IOS and Windows Phone.I was hoping for a balanced, neutral viewpoint
I only know iOS and briefly, Windows Mobile. Before that I was a Nokia Symbian man.
this is why I'm keeping 7.0.6. jailbreaked, 7.1 is nothing but problems
go ahead, enjoy your malware-filled-OS & lack of a secured appsDo Android phones experience all these crappy bugs? I'm seriously tempted to jump ship because iOS7 (along with my iPhone5) has been a massive disappointment.
Which device do you have?I have noticed mine getting hotter than usual since upgrading to 7.1.
When I charge the phone and use it at the same time or do anything for more than a few minutes it gets much warmer than any iphone I have ever owned. It almost feels like it has been sitting in the sun a few hours.
The more people who report this, the better the odds that Apple will look into it:Just chiming in with the observation that 7.1 is similar on my iPhone5.
Noticeably warmer in use, and shorter battery life overall than all prior versions (inc. 7.0.x), when all else is the same.
My iPhone5 is a little warm whilst using WiFi and making phonecalls. If I web browse over 3G however, it gets uncomfortably hot. I've done two clean DFU installs over iTunes but cannot cure this and have tried with no apps at all on the phone, the problem persists and is totally an iOS7.1 issue on my iPhone5.
For me on iPhone 5 it's about the same as it was with iOS 7.0 and even before iOS 7.Everything's cool over here with my 5s.
Also, I'm a really heavy user.
To be fair iOS 6 had a least 3 versions (if not pretty much 6 versions) to get to where it was. That certainly doesn't mean that iOS 7 should be having issues, especially larger issues, but it does mean that it can and would almost be expected to have at least more issues than iOS 6 would have.Yes but iOS6 had WAY less bugs and you can't dispute that.
iOS7 has also highlighted just how little RAM Apple's iPhones and iPads have. Unless the i6 has significantly more, then I will be passing on it for sure.
That's understandable but in my mind still not acceptable. I didn't pay £600 to be a beta tester. Apple really should have worked on iOS7 behind the scenes and got it as good as it can be before releasing it. So what if that was 12 months later. This is just my opinion and I know that many people think iOS7 is fantastic, but it's been a total pig on my iPhone5 and ruined my enjoyment of the phone. Always niggling problems and things which annoy me.For me on iPhone 5 it's about the same as it was with iOS 7.0 and even before iOS 7.

Will do, sir/madam!
I was getting fed up of Safari and a few other apps (including native apps) crashing all the time. Moreover, a week before the update I also experienced the blue screen of death.. thrice!
