I have noticed since installing iOS 7.1 that when I restart my iDevices it takes FOREVER for them to restart.

When I restart my iPad Mini Retina, it seems it takes A LOT longer than it used too. I timed it, and from the time I see the Apple Logo, it take my iPad Mini Retina 21.40 seconds to get to the main pin number screen.

When I restart my iPhone 5 (iOS 7.1) it takes from the time I see the Apple Logo to the main screen, 32.71 seconds. I know that this is definitely a bug in iOS 7.1!!! My devices NEVER have taken this long to restart.

I mean, my iPad Mini Retina has the newest chipset Apple has to offer and 21.40 seconds seems absolutely way too long and a bug in iOS 7.1!

Please, if anyone else is experiencing this, report it here and then we can all get together and send Apple a bug notice.

If anyone has experienced this and found a resolution, please let me know.

Thank you so much in advance!

My 5S took 19 seconds. To eb honest, that sounds like a long time when I sit there and count, but it didn't actually feel longer just watching it boot.

I really feel like this is a huge bug possibly.

I mean 21 seconds for my iPad Mini Retina to boot after upgrading to iOS 7.1 is just crazy. It has the A7&M7 and I know it did not take this long before 7.1!

Also, I know my iPhone 5 never took this long either.

I hope other people post in here and post some times for boot up so we can see if something is wrong or what?

Do you have any idea how long it took to boot before?

21 seconds honestly doesn't seem like the end of the world to me. So long as everything else is smooth, what's the problem really?

I can get a boot time on my wife's phone tomorrow if it helps. She still has 7.0.6

The 21 seconds was for my iPad Mini Retina, with the newest chipset obviously, and I still think that is longer than before 7.1 was installed.

The iPhone takes 31 seconds to reboot after 7.1, and I know that is WAY longer than before 7.1

Unfortunately I do not have any time recordings of boots before I installed 7.1.

I think you read my post wrong a little bit and got the numbers confused since I had my iPhone & iPad Mini Retina boot times in there.

31 seconds for the iPhone 5
21 seconds for the iPad Mini Retina

Really? You can't be serious.

I am serious. I know my iPhone did not take 31 seconds to boot on iOS 7.

Hell, in iOS 7.1 it even takes longer for the device to shutoff.

Laugh at me if you want but I presenting you with what I feel might be a bug.

Could I be wrong? Absolutely. Could I be right? Maybe. For you to criticize me for posting something I felt was relevant is rather childish. You are just a troll in my opinion.

Good-day Sir!

I was not belligerent at all, sir. I was actually rather nice. I probably should not have called you a troll, so I take that back and apologize. I am sorry.

However, for you to make fun of something that I guarantee a lot of people will probably care about if indeed it is effecting other iOS 7.1 devices.

My iPhone takes 4 seconds to boot but I am running ios9 on the iPhone 10.

Do your phone and iPad work? Yes
Does it matter how long it takes to boot?
No

Far more serious problems in the world

How often are you rebooting your phone?

The OP need to realize that he is the only one pointing out this huge bug. His/hers reboot times seem well into the normal range to me. Even if 10 seconds longer it would not represent a huge bug.

Try to relax and just enjoy your device.

You don't think that Apple is aware of the boot time??

I reboot once a month if that often. Should I get a refund on my 10 seconds? :confused:

Overall 7.1 has made devices faster opening and closing apps. Maybe the catch is a longer boot up time.

I don't have time right now but I've seen plenty of videos on YouTube comparing one iPhone to another opening apps and booting up/shutting down. Maybe you can find one and time it so we can compare a bit more accurately.

I didn't time the reboot, but by how annoyed I get to reboot I'm not anymore annoyed under 7.1 than 7.0.6. My conclusion, the reboot times on MY 5s are similar.

I promised I would check my wife's phone, which is still on 7.0.6. It took her phone 19 seconds to boot. It should be noted that she has fewer apps installed.

Bottom line is it was three seconds faster than my phone. The trade-off is all of the performance increases I have seen otherwise. I have never updated iOS on the current top tier device and personally noticed any sort of performance increase, and I have used them all.

The iPad will remain jailbroken as we use XBMC streaming on that and are not willing to give that up. But honestly, once there is a jailbreak for 7.1 th eiPad will be next.

I don't think this is a bug. Sometimes there is some give and take. I am happy to give a few seconds of my time once in a blue moon (last time I rebooted was to install 7.0.6) and SAVE seconds to minutes of my time multiples times a day during everyday use.

Look guys, I guess I was wrong in saying this could be a “bug,” however, I was just trying to point something out. I did not know it would make people so mad!

I never suggested that this was a reason to take back devices or anything like that. I just thought I would report what I noticed.

I apologize for the wording, but some of you acted a bit childish.

Look, I am very happy with the performance of iOS 7.1...and if the tradeoff is a bit longer boot times, I will take it gladly!

It's no slower than 7.0.6. In the computer world xp does not boot with exactly the same time as windows 8.1. I don't think anyone would expect anything else. iPhone world exactly the same thing.
