iOS 7.1 Reportedly Causing Serious Problems For iOS Users

iOS 7 Parody

Until recently, the latest introduction of iOS 7.1 seemed to cause apps to crash less frequently. Users were also commenting about how the update made iOS 7 on the iPhone 4 run much smoother and overall made using it a much better experience.

However, there have also been reports from iOS users who are saying the update is causing severe battery drain, causing phone batteries to drain faster than ever before.

There is not much indication on how many users have been affected, but some are suggesting that performing a clean install of iOS 7.1 by restoring through iTunes could potentially be a solution to the problem.

Now there are growing complaints that iOS 7.1 is causing iPhones to become unresponsive, and that it may be disrupting Touch ID.

According to threads on Apple’s website users are claiming that after installing iOS 7 their iPhones are freezing up and that sometimes the keyboard fails to recognize input.

Restarting the phone seems to be a solution for the freezing and keyboard failure but it is likely not a longterm solution.

For some users Touch ID doesn’t work when placing their finger on the scanner, but few users have been able to work around the bug by rescanning their fingerprints. Not everyone has been able to get that to work.
