iOS 7.1.1 update pleas for problems

The iOS 7.1 update certainly delivered some new tweaks to Apple’s iPhone and iPad operating system, along with some much needed bug fixes that were detailed in the release notes, although there’s still a number of problems users are crying out to be fixed and some issues are being reported by a growing number of people.

We touched on the previous version, iOS 7.0.6, shutting down and randomly turning off with hope that the iOS 7.1 update would fix these problems. What’s strange is the fact that an iPhone 5 in the Product Reviews office has no problems with iOS 7.1, and certainly doesn’t restart randomly. The same cannot be said for an iPhone 4S running iOS 7.1 and would randomly turn off in both 7.0.6 and 7.1 when the battery drops below 30 percent.

It is worth noting that our readers also report the iPod Touch 5 would “shut off randomly on iOS 7.0.4”, and others claim “it reboots randomly, even when the battery has 25% of life left”.

What would you like fixed with the iOS 7.1.1 update once it arrives on iPad and iPhone? Will crashing or random shutting down be on your wish list?

The latest complaints being reported to both Product Reviews and Apple discussions forum include iOS 7.1 lag for a few seconds while typing or when opening a folder, Touch ID broken since updating to iOS 7.1, and apps crashing. It is fair to say that apps freezing or crashing could be due to developers not updating their application to fully support iOS 7.1.

Personally, we’d like to see the iOS 7.1.1 update bring faster animations, improvements to Touch ID, a new feature to quick reply with notifications, and of course fix the random restarts with low battery life we’ve experienced on certain iPhone/iPad models.

It would also be good to hear from our readers in regard to battery life on your iPad or iPhone with iOS 7.1 installed, do you find the battery draining as it should be? We’ve heard some claims of poor battery, although this hasn’t been an issue with any of our office hardware.

So far I’ve notice the following problems with my iphone 5S after the 7.1.1 update: (1) I am missing songs, (2) phone stream album is now missing, (3) I have been having trouble sending photos via iMessage (they have to be sent as regular text), (4) I can no longer take a screen shot of my phone’s screen pushing the power button and home button simultaneously. and (5) I cannot turn iCloud back up on. I have not touched any settings that would cause these things to change. I have done several hard resets of my phone. I work with… Read more »

Updated my 4S to 7.1.1 last night. All apps work great except Facebook. It crashes before it even fully loads. I cleared all apps and restarted phone several times. Still, Facebook is the only app having problems

Last night I updated my iphone 5 to 7.1.1. My phone was turned to recovery mode during the installation. No one tough the phone or intervene during this process. Now I see the ITunes icon and the cable. When connected to iTune I got the message to restore my phone. In this case I will lose my stuff and phone contents. Any solution?

I would love to see speedier animations, battery life improved, and phone not freezing. Other than that I’m happy with the software.

my iphone 5 keeps crashing, the battery life seems to rapidly drain, and the touchpad it doing weird things (stalling, being frozen in an angle, always turning on face to face, or pocket dialing).

I haven’t noticed much battery difference on my iPad 4 from iOS 7.0.4 to 7.1.

Random reboots was a problem that so far resolved itself for me when I updated to 7.1. Insanely more stable than before. On an iPad Air.

I own an iPad 3, and the battery life is ridiculous after i installed iOS 7.1. Hard resets seems to help for about half a day, after that the battey drains within hours. Apple, please fix this. How can it be this wasn’t noticed in Beta testing.

No noticeable battery problems with my iPhone 5S. Just disappointed that the buttons look crappy when enabled. I liked having buttons, but the buttons just look too displeasing to the eye I just turned it off.

Battery life is awful on the iPod touch ever since upgrading to iOS 7.0. 7.1 made it even worse. Performance is still fast, as it was on 7.0. I’m not having any trouble with rebooting either.

The battery draining is killing me. I used to be so happy after switching from a Samsung to iPhone because the battery life made a tremendous difference in my user experience. Now, after this latest update, the battery life on my iPhone 5 is worse than my old Samsung. Why would Apple ever develop such an update? What’s the use of all the tweaks if you can’t even enjoy them for a decent length of time? I have to now make sure I always have a charger in my purse and now have to purchase one of those stupid portable… Read more »

My iPhone 5s suffers from over heating and battery drain issues. I have reset my device to factory and installed iOS 7.1 again, but still the same. Usually after my work day I would have 35% left over, now it is at 40% by lunch time, and usage is minimal.

I have an iPhone 4 and when I first updated to ios 7.0 my front camera stopped working. It didn’t bother me to much but I would like it to work. Now I update to ios 7.1 and my home button does work and my phone freezes constantly. I’ve tried all possible solution to fix the problems but nothing works.
