    So twice I've noticed now on my 5C that the slide to unlock wouldn't go all the way during a slide, thus not unlocking the phone. The only fix I was able to find was power down and reboot. Anyone else notice this?
    I used to experience that with my 4s, and it would be pretty frustrating! I would try to answer a call, but it wouldn't slide all the way. I would end up having to wait for the call to stop, unlock the phone, and call them back.

    Thankfully I haven't experienced this with my 5.

    One thing I have experienced since updating to 7 is with my messages. If I go and swipe to delete a message thread, my messages app will freeze up for a few seconds. Annoying, but i get over it fast!

    I noticed that after the ios 7.1 update on my iPad mini Google + and high graphics games such as Real Racing 3 seem to be lagging or crashing constantly when they worked fine on 7.0

    I just had a couple of Touch ID failures requiring me to enter my password. After I updated there were issues where it would take a few tries to swipe between home screens but that seems to have cleared up on its own.

    I noticed that my wallpaper on the lock screen has a dark shading on about the top 1/3 of the screen. I really notice it because I use a black and white wallpaper, with other pictures it is not as easy to tell (especially color ones). It really bugs me cuz it makes the picture look odd and dim and of course there's no way to fix it. Anyone else notice this? I'm also not a fan of the trust this computer prompt when plugging into itunes, i feel like this could cause problems in the future.
    Yes I'm experiencing this also.

    Same wallpaper problem here. On "some" wallpapers the top 1/3 to 1/2 of the screen is noticeably darker for some reason? I've yet to figure out why it only happens on some of my wallpapers and not on all of them? and NO it has nothing to do with the "reduce transparency" option.

    Yes and I hate it. Makes some of my wallpapers unusable. I only see it on some wallies but I'm not a fan at all. 😑

    I had a strange issue after updating to iOS 7.1. On my iPhone, Location services is turned on. But only for relevant apps such as google maps, foursquare ets, never for any camera app.

    But after updating to 7.1, every time I take a photo using the stock camera app, it turned on gps for couple seconds and turned off.

    When I turned off location services fully, this problem never occurred. So what I did, I turned on location services main switch, and turned off all the other switches which were already on such as maps and foursquare. And turned then back on as it was before. After that my problem disappeared.

    Location services is on by default for the camera so it can geo-tag the photos with the location. The update probably switched this on if you had it off before.

    No. It wasn't. I double checked everything. Restarted the phone but nothing worked except above. I know it's weird.

    Here's on odd one...

    If I google something in Safari, the Safari menu at the bottom will not display on the google results page. I have to swipe back in order to access the menu.

    Anyone else experiencing that? Thanks.

    At settings/sound/sent mail- listening any ringtone while vibration is turned on, only works ringtone, no vibration reaction
    And randomly Safari crashes, yes I'm still getting safari crashes on my 5S. Atleast not so often with 7.1
    Furthermore, swyping to the left and to the right at lockscreen gives some FPS drops, not smooth expierence on iPhone 5S

    I talked with AppleCare and was told it was apart of the 7.1 update. Some wallpapers were darkened to make them look sharper. There's nothing wrong with the phone or software. I'm content with that.

    I'm having the same issue with my 5s constantly getting the (!) next to my text messages. Everytime I go from my home wifi network to 3g I can't send sms (not iMessage). I then have to reset my Mobile data network settings, and the sms will send immediatly. This didn't happen before iOS 7.1 and it's very annoying. I have done a complete restore of the phone. Didn't help :-(

    Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook, iMessage, all of them don't seem to respond at least twice a day. The 3G connection gets lost all the time. Also, iPhone keeps restarting maybe two times a day. I tried every fix possible, but obviously in vain.
    Very, very disappointed with this update.

    I recommend you put your iPhone in DFU Mode, connect it to iTunes and restore it. Afterwards, set it up as a new device and not from a backup. Of course, make a backup up your device FIRST!, and off load any important picture, videos and music that were not purchased through iTunes.

    I recommend that you do the following:

    1. Connect your device to your computer, and back it up using the computer's iTunes app.
    2. Offload any photos, music, video and documents - preferably to a folder on your computer's desktop.
    3. Put your device in DFU mode.
    4. When iTunes recognizes your device in "recovery", select to "restore and Update" it. Be sure your computer is connected to the internet.
    5. After the process is complete, and you have selected the language, set up the device as new.

    I will give this a try this evening. I try a reinstall of iOS 7.1 but that didn't help.

    I will give this method a shot this evening and hope it works.

    Thanks for the info.

    It is possible that the .ipsw file for 7.1 is corrupted. Locate the file and move it to your trashbin prior to following the above instructions. Doing so will guarantee that iTunes download and install a fresh copy of iOS 7.1.
