Take a look at the biggest problems with the new operating system.
Unwanted Logouts. One problem that’s vexed iOS 7 users and developers alike is a glitch that logs users out of some apps, according to The Verge, prompting a sign-in screen each time an app with a unique account is accessed.
Security glitches. One problematic, but now patched, iOS 7 security flaw allowed for the circumvention of a device's lockscreen, as reported CNET.
Diminished battery life. This has been one of the top topics of discussion from those that have updated their iDevices. However, as reported by PC Magazine, the difference in power consumption is often hard to quantify, seeing as each user uses his or her phone differently and with unique configurations.
Motion sickness. Another odd claim about iOS 7 that’s receiving plenty of press: It makes users sick. As a report from NBC News asserts, iOS 7’s new 3D desktop might be giving iPhoners vertigo-like symptoms.
Problems with iMessage. Many iOS 7 adopters have posted complaints to social media about their difficulties sending messages with the newest version of iMessage, Apple's all-encompassing messaging platform for texting and desktop chatting.
Design Flaws. There are visual imperfections as well. iOS 7 is a bit off in design and compatibility with third-party apps.
