Gold iPhone 5s front

If you’re a proud iPhone 5s owner, I’m sure you’ll agree that the experience of using iOS 7 on a daily basis is less stellar than what we’ve normally come to expect from our favorite fruity company. If anything, iOS 7.0.x has taught iPhone owners, especially iPhone 5s ones, to get used to random crashes at least a couple times a day.

It’s not just that Safari crashed a lot on me, I crashed while listening to music, reading books and taking pictures – I even crashed on the iOS app switcher. It was almost as if my iPhone 5s would restart if I looked at it the wrong way.

I’m pleased to report that iOS 7 crashes far less on my iPhone 5s versus any prior iOS 7.0.x version, including the recently released iOS 7.0.6. Of course, your mileage may vary and with less than a day’s worth of running newly-released iOS 7.1 not everyone’s had a chance to experience just how stabler and snappier the new version is.

Having said that, I’d like you to vote in this non-scientific poll about iOS 7.1 stability and learn about your experience thus far. Go ahead, cast a vote and join the civil discussion down in the comments….

I understand we may get skewed results as most jailbreakers were wise to stay away from iOS 7.1 because it kills the jailbreak. That’s why this is a non-scientific poll, provided for entertainment purposes only.

Now cast your vote below, should be fun.

Another thing to consider: most of the crashing in iOS 7 stems from memory problems on 64-bit A7 devices like the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display.

When the operating system is executing on a 64-bit A7 device, iOS includes separate 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the system frameworks.

As per Apple:

When all apps running on the device are compiled for the 64-bit runtime, iOS never loads the 32-bit versions of those libraries, which means that the system uses less memory and launches apps more quickly.

The problem is, not all of existing third-party apps have been compiled for 64 bits.

In fact, if only one app on your device is 32-bit and it becomes active, iOS must load 32-bit libraries and allocate more memory for those resources.

In turn, RAM gets strained. Coupled with the fact that Apple left the A7 chip stuck with 1GB of RAM, same as the A6 before it, it’s no surprise that iOS 7 was not the stablest iOS release in Apple’s history.

According to the company, the transition to 64-bit code must be managed carefully or lest the increased memory consumption could be be โ€œdetrimentalโ€ to system performance, which is what we’re seeing.

Small wonder that Apple is promoting this bug fix iOS update on its homepage.

iOs 7.1 (teaser 001)

From the security standpoint, iOS 7.1 fixed 41 vulnerabilities, many of which were discovered and filed by prominent members of the jailbreak community, including the evad3rs team that brought you the evasi0n jailbreak.

So, how satisfied are you thus far with iOS 7.1 in terms of stability?

Has the new firmware kissed those springboard crashes goodbye for you?

Precisely what instances of random crashes have been fixed, do you think?

  • Jason Baroni

    iOS 7.1 is perfect. I have an iPhone 5 and I am with eyes wide open on crashes. Perfect performances are not forever on devices as the time passes.

  • hkgsulphate

    lmao last option

  • Chris Anson

    Battery life! 7.1 FTW!

    • Kenrick Fernandes

      ?really? which phone? and please tell us how much usage time did you get? and the usage was on 3g or 4g?

    • Julian Kieferle

      yeees da fuq ma iphone only lasts half the time it did before! was shocked this afternoon having only 19% left day before updating i had at least 20 to 30 percent more :O iPhone 5c used in Germany at 3G only

  • Kenrick Fernandes

    hey christian, isn’t it a bit too early to take a poll. Wasn’t 7.1 released a less than 24 hours ago?

    • mike

      I totally agree with you man!

    • Hyr3m

      Especially considering you can’t JB it yet…most people are probably still pondering on whether to update & lose JB or stick to 7.0.6 until further notice…

      • Naman Jain

        I am one of them ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Granted, it would have been better to run this poll after a few days but with crashes occurring on a daily basis in the iPhone 5s, the difference should be visible after a few hours worth of use

      • iOops

        I’ve never had any crashing issue with my 5s, and 7.1 does not change that. It seems to run quite well and performs about the same from what I can tell. The battery use does seem lower, so that is a plus.

    • Techno Ventures

      your right!

  • Maximโˆ‘

    Yes or no

  • Marcus

    I’m not going to update to 7.1 so I’m staying on iOS 7.0.6 with a jailbreak. Who regrets updating their iDevice?

    • iihk

      regrets. so much regrets.

    • Ugh

      I do!..

  • Batman

    1 crash as of now

  • Straw hat

    It there a chance for a jailbreak for iOS 7.1?

    • Jonathan

      I answered this question to someone else a few days ago.
      Most likely it will be jailbroken when iOS 7.2/8 is released, which is when Apple pretty much stops updating iOS 7 and focuses on 7.2/8. Then, if possible, the jailbreak community will use the exploits from iOS 7.2/8 (if possible) on 7.1 and jailbreak that.

      • Straw hat

        Hmm i see thanks for the info

      • Vince Reedy

        I don’t remember a .2 release, at least not iOS 5 and up. I would say unless a major bug or feature is added, 7.2 will never exist.

      • Jonathan

        I say that because a previous post on iDB saw a rumor from I think a China dude is who is pretty reliable and gave the iPhone 6 specs, including OS which was 7.2.

  • Ro Replay

    Have to tell you these, I got disappointed when I upgraded my iPad 2 to 7.0. The animation is laggy, the stock apps usually crash especially Safari. However, after upgrading to 7.1, the animation is not laggy at all, and haven’t occur any crashes at all.

  • Naman Jain

    Very less crashes on 7.1 ! Updated iPad Air to 7.1 and 5S still jailbroken on iOS 7.0.6

  • Naman Jain

    Is battery life better on iOS 7.1 for iPhone 5S ? If yes then I would prefer a longer battery to Jailbreak ๐Ÿ™‚
    Please reply ASAP

    • felixtaf

      Longer battery would be a no. Battery performance improvement will be there.
      Worth to give up jailbreak? – Hell NO!

      • Naman Jain

        Actually Yeah ! Jailbreak is amazing ! the only drawback is that your battery dies like shit ! well different people have different opinions … being a 14 year old teenage who loves to game and socialize, I would prefer a longer battery than those tweaks which make your phone look and feel awesome (: !

  • Hyr3m

    I love how Apple persists in calling it the “most advanced” mobile OS.
    It is both technically and conceptually wrong :
    – “most advanced” as in “the one that has advanced the most” as in “the one that has changed the most since it was created” would be Blackberry 10.2.1.XXXX (or arguably windows phone 8 (soon 8.1))
    – “most advanced” as in “the one giving you the best functionality” would be Android kitkat (or arguably BB10.2.1.XXXX)

    • Naman Jain

      Go kiss Samsung ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Hyr3m

        Excuse me, I mentioned Microsoft, Google, Blackberry and Apple so where does Samsung come in ?

    • Rowan09

      Dude it’s subjective. IOS changed significantly since it’s inception. Most functionality is also very subjective because most people with smartphones only use them for Facebook, emails, and web browser. People don’t usually tweak their smartphones only techies tweak their phones. The iPhone is capable of being tweaked with a jailbreak as we all know.

      • Hyr3m

        “IOS changed significantly since it’s inception.” -> not as much as Blackberry OS or Windows CE/mobile/phone/pocket pc.

        I meant “functionality” as “things the device’s hardware allows the operating system to do”. If you’re talking about “advanced operating system”, third party app usage are completely irrelevant. If your device has an FM radio and NFC chip, its operating system can offer more functions.

      • Rowan09

        The old Windows mobile phones looked like XP and the new one looks like Windows 8 which is touchscreen optimized. How are you trying to compare 10+ year old tech with its predecessor when they are in a totally different league? You mention having an NFC chip gives more functionality which is very subjective and not even slightly true. NFC is not a standard like Bluetooth so it’s not needed since Bluetooth tech can provide you with better and a greater range of functionality. Mentioning an FM radio transmitter being built in a phone is just a way to brag about features since this function can be replicated with software. Everything is subjective because it’s dependent on each persons opinion. If I make a product and said it’s the world’s best tissue for example how can I be proven wrong? Obviously some people will agree and some will disagree but it still wouldn’t affect my statement. How are you trying to override the people who disagree as important but those who agree as less important? Unless there’s a standard for “advance” it’s going to be subjective.

      • Hyr3m

        The burden of proof falls upon the person making the statement. I don’t have to prove you wrong about your tissue, you have to prove your statement to be true (or back it up with a * and a mention at the bottom *according to a 2013 study by xyz ).

        Look up “Advanced” in the dictionary if you have doubts as to its meaning(s).

        Apple’s statement falls into their usual marketing strategy which I would call false advertisement or more generally BS marketing.

        (btw I never said anything about an FM transmitter and NFC is as standard as bluetooth: do some research next time instead of making IT-illiterate statements)

        Read my initial comment again, there are two ways of understanding Apple’s statement and it’s wrong whichever way you take it. What you’re arguing is that you initially answered about the wrong way of understanding it. Maybe try to get your act together next time ?

      • Rowan09

        I never said you stated NFC or a FM tuner was a standard you made mention of having them would be a function. You can’t mention hardware and then try to compare it with software by the way. Who in their right mind wouldn’t understand this is a marketing statement? Anytime a company makes a commercial or putting out an ad it’s all for marketing and this isn’t any different.

      • Hyr3m

        You said “NFC is not a standard” to which I said “yes it is”. I simply said this in the same sentence in which I said that I never said anything about a FM transmitter.

        Bluetooth can do some of the things NFC can but not all of them, they are complementary technologies and offer various and varying functions. (hence having both means more functionality, even if some of them overlap and bluetooth may be better at some of the overlapping ones). By the way and even though this is obvious, I always mean functionality as in “the range of operations that can be run on a computer or other electronic system” and not in the sense of “practicality”.

        False statements are false statements. Just because the lie is obvious to some people (or even most people) doesn’t mean a company should be allowed to spread it. Btw, not a lot of people are in their right mind when its about the fruit company. Nor are many people truly educated about IT in general or smartphones operating systems more specifically. Case in point : yourself.

      • Rowan09

        How cute. So you’re saying I need NFC in a phone why now? You don’t need NFC because Bluetooth is the industry standard. Tell me something you can do with NFC that’s not possible with Bluetooth? Point is Apple made a statement and we can’t disprove it because it’s general and subjective. Why are you even mentioning hardware when this discussion is about software? How many lines of code does it take to make IOS as well, Android?

      • Hyr3m

        Maybe you don’t need NFC but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t count as additional functionality. You don’t know anything about NFC ? aaw… poor thing… I just wish there was a search engine out there from which you could find information like this…

        Let’s say I have a NFC electronic wallet phone that allows me to do all the things you can do on your phone but I can also pay for stuff with a simple swipe of my phone on a cash register’s “NFC payment pad”. Who has the phone with the most functionality/functions ?

      • Rowan09

        I know what NFC is Near Field Communications is what it stands for and you can also make a payment with Bluetooth. Nevertheless NFC is hardware not software so pay attention and learn something today. I have multiple phones so I don’t have to worry about and I’m fine with my iPhone 5s. My phone works for me and what works for you is fine, but stop trying to imply your will on everyone.

      • Hyr3m

        I don’t know what you’re smoking but I think I want some…

    • felixtaf

      So, you are saying that iOS isnt changed since release? Except the UI, there are plenty changes…
      If u consider the UI, BB10, WP8, Kitkat looks similar to their previous versions.
      Reg BEST functionality, its purely subjective. I know people who r stil using and loving Symbian devices.
      Android Kitkat dint brought anything new apart from some Ui touches. Jelly bean was similar to ICS with minor UI touches and huge stability improvements!
      BB10 wont grow any further, coz they are too late for the party!

      • Hyr3m

        So you’re comparing the difference between iOS 1 and iOS 7.1 versus that between BB10 and BB9, that between WP8 and WP7, and that between Jelly Bean and Kitkat ? Well that’s just too bad for you because not only is that a pretty unfair comparison but it’s also wrong; BB10 is more different to BB9 than iOS 7.1 is different to iOS 1.

        Functionality as in “functions”.
        What new things did iOS 7 bring that its competitors didn’t already have for years ?

      • Rowan09

        What does functions the competitors have or didn’t have to do with IOS? IOS changing has nothing to do with BB or Android and that’s why your argument is pointless. IOS changing is being compared to itself not to what competitors do.

      • Hyr3m

        When Apple says “the most advanced mobile OS” they’re clearly saying it’s the most advanced mobile OS out of all of them, not just “the most advanced of Apple’s mobile OSs” (which would be pretty pointless as they only have one).

      • Rowan09

        I hope you understand this statement is directly going at Android since it’s the only viable competitor. Why is Android more advance than Tizen?

      • Hyr3m

        Malkovich malkovich malkovich malkovich malkovich ? Malkovich, malkovich malcovich…

        MALKOVICH !

        Sorry but that comment was so much troll I can’t just assume you’re just completely stupid anymore.

      • Rowan09

        I hope you know clown I own more phones with a difference OS than you do. You are actually the troll because everything Apple does is bad to you, so if that’s the case do whatever you want. Your argument is baseless and you can’t prove anything so you keep ranting with absolutely no purpose.

      • Hyr3m

        It’s a reference to “Being John Malkovich” but w/e.

        How do you know what I own or don’t own?

        “I hope you understand this statement is directly going at Android since it’s the only viable competitor.” is a baseless argument just like most of what you’ve said today…

        You keep running in circles, avoiding the core of the conversation and every point I make. This is not the first time I see you doing this and I’m betting you do this in real life too. I truly wish you the best of luck in all of your professional endeavors, you’ll definitely need it. From now on I’m just going to ignore your comments just like I would a 12 years old’s. (although I’m sure plenty of 12 years old kids have more logic, common sense, honesty and reading ability than you have… although that’s not saying much as you have practically none.)

        Good bye.

    • Hyr3m


    • +1
      Been saying that for years

      • Hyr3m

        ikr ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Rowan09

      Please also give me the standard for “advance” since there’s a standard definition in this case?

      • Hyr3m

        Please give me the definition of “standard” since I’m too lazy to look it up myself.

      • Rowan09

        It’s not about being lazy because you’re saying it’s not the most advance mobile OS. Explain what Apple means by it’s the most advance OS? (I don’t and neither do you) When BMW says it’s the Ultimate Driving machine are they wrong? It’s all subjective because Google could say Android is the most Advance mobile OS as well and I wouldn’t lose sleep or disagree with them. It’s factual Apple is the most secure when compared to Android so how do you know that’s not why they are making this statement?

      • Hyr3m

        “Ultimate” as an adjective (which it most likely is in this sentence) means last/final. If it’s a noun, it can also be meant as “final”.
        It’s the last car they release so it’s just plain true. Just because the last thing someone makes is generally the best doesn’t mean that by saying it’s the latest we’re saying it’s the best.
        If I worked for BMW I would’ve changed that to “Our ultimate driving machine” (but let’s not get into marketing psychology…).
        Apple’s iOS is maybe securer than Android but it is certainly not the most secure mobile OS out there.
        “most advanced” is a general statement; If they wanted to make the point of it being more secure than the competition (remember it’s not just Android and iOS out there) they would have said “most secure” which they can’t because it’s not true at all and they can’t play the “yeah but that’s not what we meant” card like they can with “advanced”.

        My point is “advanced” is not vague enough for them to play this card either way. Just like food should be labeled properly, ads and marketing campaigns should not be allowed to bullsh*t people with unbacked vague superlative statements.

      • Rowan09

        You know nothing about marketing. BMW saying it’s the Ulitmate Driving Machine is subjective because someone can say Benz or Audi is because it’s subjective. I’ve driven BMWs, Mercedes, Audi, etc and I don’t even know why they make that statement, but that’s their thing and it’s subjective. You still keep dodging my question. What makes a mobile OS the most advance? You missing the point because Apple doesn’t need to focus on Symbian, Tizen, BB10, CyanogenMod, etc because Android is their direct competitor. You don’t need to reference irrelevant systems.

      • Hyr3m

        Do you even speak english ? Go read what I said in the original comment of this thread (to which you replied btw… in case you forgot). Use your brain this time.

      • Rowan09

        Just answer the question. What makes a mobile OS advance?

      • Hyr3m

        Apparently it’s the number of illiterate trolls that use it. In that sense Apple is completely right to claim they have the most advanced mobile OS.

      • Rowan09

        Just like you huh. You have no answer and a primate like yourself would make such a statement.

      • Hyr3m

        “iOS is the most advanced mobile OS”
        This is both technically and linguistically wrong :

        – Linguistically : “most advanced” as in “the one that has advanced the most” as in “the one that has changed the most since it was created” would be Blackberry OS (or arguably windows phone) so it’s historically wrong.

        – Linguistically (far fetched) : “most advanced” as in “the one that is ahead of the others” is technically wrong. There is no function that iOS offers that other mobile OS don’t offer yet (while the opposite is true). In case you want to suggest they meant “ahead” as in “has bigger market shares” then I suggest you go back to school and learn English.

        – Technically : “most advanced” as in “the one giving you the most/best functionality” as in “the one with the most functions” : that’s just wrong. Claim as much as you want that you don’t need what others offer on top of Apple but that still doesn’t mean iOS has more functions than Android. (how could you even go down that way if you understand what a statement like this would imply and if you have any sense of dignity ?)

        (this is the last time I reply to one of your dumb comments constructively… unless you miraculously grow a brain and baffle me with an answer that actually holds some non-fallacious logic for once. Please surprise me, I still have some faith in humanity so I’m sure you can pull that off)

      • Rowan09

        Please elaborate on how BB changed over the years? Your wrong about Android since most of its changes since 2.3 was UI changes? Your explaination of the technical reason is way too simplistic. Technical would mean coding and anything relating to programming as well and this is the reason why it’s subjective. I asked you earlier about BMW saying it’s the Ultimate Driving Machine and you said it’s an adjective making it true, then went on to say if you worked for them you would say “Our Ultimate Driving Machine”. You don’t understand marketing, saying too much is confusing and saying “Our” Ultimate Driving Machine wouldn’t say anything about the competition. I don’t know what Apple mean when they say the most advance, but they have a right to say it because it’s subjective. In marketing a lot of things are implied. Apple saying they are the most advance doesn’t mean Android, etc is not advance or lest advance, it wants people to assume that’s what they’re saying. It’s a marketing tactic that’s no different from Google saying we’re open source and at its inception speaking of using having Flash on its browser. When Google say it’s open source people without knowledge don’t understand what they mean, but they keep saying reinforcing it. They even said that’s the reason why it’s not secure from an article posted on IDB last month. I care less if Apple say hey are the most advance. If they said they are the most secure that can be proven but they would have to clearly state what they mean when making such a statement.

      • Hyr3m

        Well my whole point revolved around the fact that they should not have the right to say it just because they can argue that it’s vague enough. It’s either (arguably) subjectively right or plain wrong (or baseless). (What I’m saying that it’s specific enough to hold it against them just like if they said something like “secure” and it weren’t true.)

        “Ultimate” has an actual meaning (last/final) yet it conveys the meaning of “greatest evaah” to the minds of the masses and is therefore a perfect word to use in marketing. It is in this sense a superlative that people know holds no true meaning while they are still more or less moved by it (even though they like Mercedes better and would rather have a Lamborghini if they had the money for it). “Advanced” however, is not and here’s why: a random dude sees the BMW ad and goes “riiiight… the ULTIMATE… can they say this? Is this backed up by tests? Surveys? I’ll look it up…” he googles “ultimate”, finds out the true meaning of the word and goes “I see what they did there”. The same guy sees Apple’s ad and goes through the same process only to find out that “most advanced” really means “the most ahead, that has progressed the most, hype (so new it’s not the norm yet)” and so he goes to the shop and buys it. Why ? Because he trusts that such a big and exposed company can not get away with false advertisement.

        That’s what I call unfair business practices and I will argue against it regardless of which company does it. It’s obvious from what I post on this here website that I don’t hold Apple in a special place in my heart but I’ve said worse things about Google and Microsoft over the years. Every big corporation does its share of evil things at one point and not just in the IT industry.

        I’ve studied marketing extensively and I’m actually a marketing consultant for several successful small companies. You could argue that because I would rather be honest I therefore do not understand how marketing works. I’m fine with that. What I’m saying is that we should not let huge corporations nor small businesses use foul tactics to get our money from us. And if they do deserve our money they shouldn’t have to use such foul tactics so these should be off limits in all cases.

        Imagine this were food and public health was at risk. Would you like for such methods to be used to make you eat, drink and take stuff that you would never eat, drink or take if you knew what was in there and what it does to your body? Well it happens every single day almost everywhere on this planet …

        Back on the subject at hand. Your example about using “open source” as a selling argument goes to my point: most people don’t know what it means and if they do some research they will understand what and why. It’s the same as “ultimate”, if you’re not sure what it means (or call BS like everyone above age 7 does in front of car ads) you can look it up and understand. “Most advanced” is just a lie, not just smoke and mirrors like marketing usually is. If you break what is said in TV ads down to the comma you can almost always go “I see what you did there”, when you read Apple’s marketing material you go “they wouldn’t dare lie to us, this must be true”.

      • Rowan09

        We’ll just agree to disagree.

    • jzack

      lol.. i assume u know nothing about stability, usability, responsive and speed in the technology’s side.. its easy to compare actually. but it depends on your software knowledge and the understanding of how things work..

      • Hyr3m

        Please elaborate. I’m curious to hear what you have to say about how iOS is “the most advanced mobile OS” on a technological functionality point of view.

        Note the two different meanings of “functionality”.

        1. the quality of being suited to serve a purpose well; practicality.

        “I like the feel and functionality of this bakeware”

        2. the range of operations that can be run on a computer or other electronic system.

        “new software with additional functionality”

        iOS is by many means not as practical as BB10 for example. But maybe that’s just my point of view… which makes the first meaning of “functionality” irrelevant as you can pretty much do the same things on every smartphone and each device will be better for one person and not as good for someone else while it’s the other way around for another device and user. People get used to interfaces as well so everyone is biased in a way because of that.
        Therefore, please concentrate on the second meaning in your elaboration.

        It depends on device I guess. My iPad Air (7.0.4) crashes only on Safari. Apps used to crash and random reboots are common in iOS7. With iOS 7.0.4, i dont have app crash or random reboots. But safari crashes once in a while….

    • iOops

      I’ve never had crashing issues either – 7.1 works quite well, though I must admit I am not a fan of some of the changes made to the number dial pad, and incoming call screens (the small round buttons vs the older oblong ones that look better)

    • Jack Wong

      As long as you enjoy it.

      I wouldn’t hold my breath anymore for new phone or OS just because of the jb.

    • David Villamizar

      That girl appears in a Direct TV ad in my country ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Alan

      • David Villamizar

        Her name is sara builes, search her name with the word directv and you’ll find a pretty nice ad in youtube.

    Just 1 day, how can I tell?

  • bn326160

    Only had it for a day, I’ll have to report in a week about my iPad (A7), but WOW, my iPhone 4’s performance improved!

    • My 4S from 7.0-7.4 battery was awful. I thought the battery was dying and in need of replacement. 7.06 fixed it and now it runs like normal. Now I can sell it without having to drop the price

  • Smeltn

    my iPhone 5s definitely didn’t crash all the time. Heck I would go a week or more without a crash.

  • Abi Manyu

    never had any crash since 7.0.4 and now staying on 7.0.6.

  • I’m staying with 7.0.6 because I don’t want to lose my jailbreak.

  • โœช aidan harris โœช

    Don’t know, don’t careโ€ฆ

  • al7oot

    Slower on my iPhone 4S than 7.0.4 and the battery life SUCKs.. I didn’t try it on my iPhone 5S because I’m happy with my jailbrwak ^^

  • Joaquim Nascimento

    I’m also using i5s and have never experienced any crash either on IOS 7 or 7.1.
    You guys should just stop watching porn on mobile Safari. Use the computer instead. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    iOS 7.1 made my iPhone an iPhone again. My first experience with iOS 7.0 on my iPhone 4 was horrible I couldn’t stand my phone anymore, so I downgraded back to iOS 5.1.1 5 months ago. Today I installed iOS 7.1 and was very pleased with the speed and performance Improvments

  • jack

    iOS 7.1 is great.. no crashes so far and stuff is much faster. I feel bad for those on Androided phones (stuck on a FW and can’t update)

  • n0ahcruz3

    Just waiting for ip6 and ios 8 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Matt

    I mean this might be just me but I’m on 7.0.4 and don’t have any crashes at all, unless I install a tweak like ISX which made me crash quiet a bit, but then after deleting it I’m perfectly fine

  • Chris Barnett

    It may be a little early for this poll ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Brandon Weidema

    I got a call today, and the new incoming call interface on iOS 7.1 is soooooo much better than before.

    • Lance Baker

      I like it better, too. The animation is great.

  • Eleonora

    ios 7.1 finally fix the random reboot of ipad air?? and what about the safari crashes? thanks!

  • Bido

    Most of my crashes in iOS7 occurred with twitter

  • Sam Khan

    I saw a big improvement in iPad Air’s performance, its fast fluent and more responsive, did not crash or reboot so far. But battery life actually decreased, Kinda disappointing.

  • Joshob1987

    I will wait and see if actually helps with battery life after its jailbreakable, for now im keeping my extra ram. This would not be the first time Apple lied about improvements on battery life.

  • Ninja Banana

    On iPod Touch 5th Generation, this update really cleans it up. The springboard is much smoother with the parallax effect, too.

  • Girish

    springboard was always crashing when using camera on locked screen,,n fingerprint same time on 5s,,7.1 fixed that issue for me (y)

  • @dongiuj

    iPhone crashing a lot…..sounds not much different from another batch of phones running a different OS, does it not?
    It’s like apple is trying to add more features, this because the consumer demands it, but apple can’t seem to make run smoothly like all the applefanonites diss the other companies about. But because it’s an apple product, it’s not a problem? Madness!

  • Ric D

    I must be one of the lucky ones I’m still on 7.0.6 and owned my 5S for two months don’t ever recall a single crash and I’m jallbroken!

  • I’m still on iOS 7.0.6 because I want to keep my jailbreak. I am experiencing a few crashes, but I think that’s just due to some tweak misbehaving. It’s a little annoying, but not a deal-breaker. I only have maybe 1-2 crashes a day.

  • iihk

    My iPhone 5 won’t stop crashing since the update. I had no issues with crashes before the update. The screen completely stops working 10-20 times in ONE DAY. Im going completely insane. >_< 15 reboots today. yay.

    • Anmol Malhotra

      Stop lying! You bloody hater!!

  • Ugh

    never crashed before. now that I downloaded 7.1 it does, had to do a full restore once already, and it is doing it again already. iPhone 5… :/ wish I could go back to 7.0 minus the keyboard typos.

  • First N. Last

    I’m another 5s user who didn’t get any crashes on 7.0, then started getting lots of flaky behavior with 7.1–random black screens, reboots, apps crashing, incoming calls not ringing, lots of random shit weird stuff going on. Reboot doesn’t help, will be doing a full flush and restore next.

  • J. Nev

    I have the iPad mini and the daily random crashes persist. I thought I had a lemon iPad tried 2 other browsers same thing. I wonder how Microsoft & androids tablets compare to trouble free usability??? Should I JB or sell this?
