    I restored as new and then set up all my apps again. I didn't restore from backup afterword as some on the support forums did. All claimed it didn't help doing it that way. FYI.
    To each his or her own, but I'm a fan of restoring as new. I truly believe that doing so has saved me from experiencing many of the issues other members post about.

    Anyone else notice a lag on iOS 7 on the iPhone 5? It wasn't so bad yesterday, but it was horrible this morning. A restore as new solved the issue and the phone feels great now.
    Just curious, what specifically was lagging?

    I haven't seen any lag. Battery life doesn't seem to be as good. But other than that, the phone flies. Safari is so fast now.

    I haven't encountered any unpleasant surprises. Battery life is on par with ios6 and it seems the speed and smoothness is improved. Very satisfied with everything.

    I have to add that I'm really enjoying iOS 7. It really makes the iPhone 5 complete.

    I did it OTA and have no lag at all on my 5 or my two kids 5. I guess it's hit or miss.

    No lag whatsoever on my iPhone 5. Very snappy in fact.

    I did originally, but I had push notification issues so I backed up to iCloud, reset the phone and restored to my backup. No problems since!

    I did the same. I don't notice any overall lag, but there are some elements that are just slightly slower than others. This suggests to me that there may be some minor niggles that will likely be smoothed out in future updates.

    Could you quote some specifics because I'm not seeing any lag but maybe I'm not using some apps that you are.

    It may be unfair to categorize it as lag per se. There are some transitions that aren't quite as smooth.

    Example, when I hit the button to reply to an email, the pop up menu come up just a bit choppy. Same thing when I hit the share button in Photos. The menu transition is just a slight bit choppy. It could just be me.

    I haven't noticed a lag in replying to emails, but I haven't shared any photos either so I can't comment on that.

    what do u mean by restored as new without backup? i also face the same problem with u, my iphone lag with ios 7.
    did u mean that i have to restored as new phone with my ios 6 backup? then upgrade it back to ios 7? or back up this ios 7, and restore it as new?

    Updated mine and wife's iP5 OTA. I haven't noticed anything lagging or rather, I haven't been looking for anything that lags. Happy so far.

    If you're on iOS 7 connect to itunes and restore as new. Do not use any of your backups to set the phone up. This will cause you to have to enter all your settings and lose your saved game levels, but it will make ios 7 on your iphone 5 work like its fresh out of the box.

    If youre on ios 6, update to ios 7 and restore as new when it prompts you.

    I don't really have any lag per se but I do feel like the icon transition when you unlock the phone could be a touch faster. Not really a complaint though...

    I tried this and I didn't get any lag. So that's good for me. Maybe try restarting your phone. Maybe that will fix the issue.

    I did the OTA update, backed up through iCloud then wiped my phone and restored. I don't know why I didn't just restore through iTunes like I know is best to do. I had to wipe my phone three times on launch day to get everything working right. If I didn't hate restoring apps, layouts, and media with a passion I would've just started as new. I did reset all settings after restoring though.

    Everything is ok after three days now, not happy with the slight increase in time with the transitions and occasional lag but my fingers are crossed that gets fixed. Battery life is the same as with iOS 6 after turning off parallax, background app refresh, and most of location services. It seemed like it was draining more then usual with wifi on in standby but that seems to have settled down now too.

    I had the GM installed and from time to time I did notice some lag. I restored to the public official and the lag disappeared. Had the same issues withe the GM and my mini.
