Anyone w/ a 4S notice that w/ iOS 7 the touch accuracy on the screen seems worse?
It just seems that when I want to press a button or link or anything, I have to specifically aim for dead-center of the object or my touch will not register.
Not having this issue on the iPad but I assume that's b/c of the larger screen.
Given that there are all these new settings and whatnot in iOS 7, is there any chance I'm overlooking some other screen setting that may be causing this odd behavior?

I've experienced this on my iPhone 5. I've had more non-hits in the few days with 7 than I did in a year on iOS 6. Seems like the border around touch targets is smaller in iOS 7. Is there a setting for this somewhere?

Changes in the appearance of touch targets may no longer exactly match the target zones, which could easily explain a higher count of "misses" when touching. This could especially be the case inside apps that were written for iOS 6. If so, Apple's tweaking of the OS and updating of apps will slowly get rud of it.
