    I've noticed severe drop in frame rates on a number of games with 2 of my iPhone 5s. The games most commonly affected are temple run 2 (especially nearing fire obstacle) and punch quest. The games would always start out smooth but halfway through would start stuttering and lagging very badly. And to make matters worst, once you exit the games and go to messages , the animation for imessages starts to lag and gets extremely jittery. Restarting the phone does not make the lag go away. Only a reset of system settings would. Anyone of you experienced similar problems?

    Shhhh you'll make the iSheep feel bad lol jk

    That doesn't sound too good, it's either the developer not coding for 5S or it's Apple

    Are the apps optimized for ios7 and iPhone 5S? If not, then wait for an update.

    The thing is after I close the affected apps, the messages app starts crapping out. The iMessage animation starts getting very jittery. I've noticed this on quite a number of games.

    Could still be the game not being coded very well for iOS 7. For a number of seconds they will continue to run in the background making it affect other apps.

    There are also times when the games would run perfectly fine. It's pretty odd.

    IOS7 needs major work, a snow-leopard type overhaul to make it clean and jitter-free.

    its the developer. Ive noticed a few graphics bugs with the 5S as well on certain games (temple run and iron man). Must be the unfamiliarity with the A7.

    Do you experience stuttering and overall frame rate drops with those games? For me without fail if any games trigger off the lag response, the iMessage animations will suffer. And only a system settings reset can solve it. This issue happens randomly , not all the time with the affected games. Most times the games play perfectly smooth. My only worry is that the gpu is defective.

    Is anyone experiencing the lag in facebook when going into it or when unlocking your phone? Those are the two places I notice it most.
