    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.

    Don't notice any lag on my iPhone 5 after updating OTA yesterday. Glad you were able to resolve the issue on yours.

    I'm still running after just doing the OTA. Don't really see any lag. Glad you were able to resolve. I think my plan is to run like this for a few days and see how the battery performs. If something starts bugging me I will restore as new.

    If anyone is seeing lag you could also try turning off the parallax animations in Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Motion -> On. (Thanks again Fausty for this info!) Just a thought, seems processor hungry.

    I'm seeing some significant lag. I'm thinking about restoring it from iTunes myself.

    That is what I recommend. Both of my devices are working smoothly and without problems thus far.

    You should also keep in mind that there will likely be updates soon. This could smooth out performance.

    My lag disappeared and my battery improved to what I was getting with iOS 6. It also cleared a bunch of junk files.

    Personally I think updating over the air is the worst way.

    Something could get jumbled.

    I updated OTA and did experience some slight lag. I haven't had a chance to connect to iTunes, so I just did a power off and it helped. I am going to back it up and restore as new later on tonight just in case.

    Zero lag for me.

    The only glitchy performance at all really was with my wife's iPhone 5...she was hitting the home button twice to bring up the multitasking bar and it would do this...



    ...hard reset fixed it though, no issues since.

    I saw a lot of lag on a 4S (I know, different phone) doing multi-select in email to delete multiple emails). It was an hour or so after updating via iTunes and a reboot, so don't know what else might have been happening at the same time).

    Yes, restore as new from iTunes. I didn't restore from backup after either. I started everything fresh. The phone works perfectly fine now.

    Following an iTunes restore and some manual updates iOS 7 is running like a champ now. I'm actually starting to get impressed a little.

    Absolutely no problems since installed for me. Running smoothly. Both on my iPhone 5 and iPad mini I did ota updates without backing up prior; everything came back as it were before. Loving it 😋

    I ran into the same issue last year updating OTA from 5.1 to 6.0 and also had to restore from iTunes to get relief. This year I updated to 7 directly through iTunes and no lag. At least for me all major updates from now on will be done on my PC.

    My iOS 7 on my phone is no lag but I can tell it's not 100% but I know apple will improve it eventually but for now I am just enjoying it feels like a whole new phone

    Does parallax lag for any of you? Sometimes it feels like it forgets to turn on when I go to my home screen. It also doesn't feel too smooth

    Fantastic! Thank you. I've only ever restored/updated on the phone, never iTunes. Doing that now

    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.
