    This bug exists since iOS 7.1 update and it was not fixed yet.

    I have described the problem in the thread below.

    Just to summarise if your carrier name is too long and does not fit on the status bar, it creates a delay in opening apps.

    I have observed that the problem still exists in iOS 8 beta 3. I have reported the problem in apple like 4-5 times.

    As i am not developer, can any developer here open a thread in apple to report this problem? It makes my iPhone 5s slower than 4s.

    use the bug reporter app, im not a dev & apple even responded to my bug report on beta 3's launch date, which they fixed in beta 3 anyway.

    You can also report at (you just sign up as a free developer which anyone can do any time).

    Whoa lol good thing my carrier name is "o2-de" and nothing longer :D

    Why are you using iOS 8 beta 3 if you're not a developer? Also, file a bug report using the bug reporter app... This thing appears to be more serious than it seems since there are crashes during this half second.

    I have not installed the beta on my iphone. I saw that the bug was not fixed on a friend's iphone which had ios 8 beta 3. I filed a bug report to apple. Still waiting! I will update this thread when i have an answer.

    If the issue is in the current iOS 7.1, it doesn't matter whether you're a developer. You can go to mentioned earlier, whether you're a paid developer or not and report the issue. It seems that you've already done that, and if they fix it, they should notify you or ask if it is in a later version of iOS

    Guys, just a question.

    Normally how long does it take apple to answer a bug report?

    Is there any chance that they will ignore it?

    Same problem here

    I am calling cytanet for 10 days now, they keep ignoring me on this problem...

    The only solution would be a possibility to have a software that would be able to change the carrier name (it existed once under IOS6) or jailbreak... Please solution needed ASAP !
