    Default Lock Button Malfunctions

    As of the launch of iOS 7 Beta 2 i noticed a SIGNIFICANT decrease in the functionality of my lock button, pushing multiple times to lock/unlock, as well as barely being able to take screenshots anymore.

    Has this been an apparent issue for others? i tried searching the forum and couldnt confirm or deny it

    Wondering if its my actual lock button or just the beta software because now with iOS7 Beta 3 being out there i noticed no improvement at all

    You're the first person I've noticed to have an issue like this. Have you perused the following threads in regard to iOS 7 Beta 2 & 3 information & bug discussion?

    I had, and I know of friends that had issues with their lock screen button. I had to take mine to Apple and they replaced the phone. Try pressing the right side of the button and then left to see if you get a different response. You may find pushing on the right side will not work but pushing on the left will. That has been my experience.

    I was also going to say restore back to iOS 6 and if you still have the issue take it in and get it replaced. I've heard of quite a few people having issues with the lock button iOS 7 or not.
