Day-one iOS 7.0.1 update for iPhone 5s & 5c patches launch bugs

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Users booting up their newly released iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c on Friday will be prompted to install a minor operating system update, intended to squash a few minor bugs Apple discovered with its latest handsets.

Touch ID


iOS 7.0.1 is exclusive to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. It was actually released alongside iOS 7.0 on Wednesday, but did not affect users until Friday, when the new handsets were actually made available to the public.

The update is said to address an issue with the new Touch ID sensor found on the new iPhone 5s. Walt Mossberg of AllThingsD noted in his iPhone 5s review that Apple was planning to quickly release a patch to fix a minor bug related to using the fingerprint scanner for iTunes purchases.

Officially, Apple has said that the minor update simply includes "bug fixes and improvements." It's unknown how iOS 7.0.1 affects the iPhone 5c, which lacks the Touch ID sensor embedded in the home button.

iOS 7.0.1 can be installed as an over-the-air update via the iPhone's Settings application, or through iTunes when connected to a Mac or PC running the newly released iTunes 11.1.

So, CC bug fix in 7.0.2 then?
I’d rather have a better product than a better price.

I'm disappointed, I thought it would be for all iPhones. I have a 4S and an iPad 3, and I do get regular crashes (goes back to white Apple logo and resets) throughout the day. OSXdaily had warned users not to upgrade until fixes were released, but I was way too excited to wait any longer - I can put up with it for a while, as the rest is just pure bliss, but it's annoying.

I find it quite stable, but thats on a 5.  I have never seen a spurious reset ever, and have beta tested it for at least a month.  Thats crazy.

You do realize that it's a personal choice in settings whether you want the Control Center to be accessible when the phone is locked, right?
It's a feature, not a bug 1wink.gif
post #9 of 47

I updated my 4s to iOS 7 minutes after it was available; love it!

I got up at 2am CT and ordered my phone a few minutes after as soon as the refresh brought the store back up.

Got the 32gb Space Gray 5s.

 

Ships 1-3, arrives Sep30 to Oct2.... can't wait!!

 

No issues with iOS 7... not a huge fan of everything, but no issues.  Battery drains like any new OS.. BECAUSE I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN!!!

Lars you beat me to it, I was just about to say that this is a great feature and not a bug

Dude, you don't know about this issue.

The bug is that some one can access without authorization to some applications like Mail and Photos. And Control Center is used as a gateway, even though there is a password set. (Features of Control Center are not an issue - you are right here. But access to other apps which are not part of Control Center - are a security bug).

In settings you can disable the control center access from the lock screen which closes this hole.  Thats what he was trying to say.

 

Of course, who wants to disable it from the lock screen, thats one of the best features of ios 7.

No issues with iOS7 on my iPhone 5. Can't say the same for my otherwise reliable iPad 2, which now runs and lags like some cheap Android phone. C'est la vie.

You need to get out more.

Thank you, early adopters! Keep up the good work.  Maybe by Halloween iOS 7 will be ready for me to install on my iphone5 without too many spooky bugs.  :)

Has iOS7 been released yet?

Blimey - Apple kept that quiet didn't they?
post #17 of 47

My wife and daughter both updated yesterday. Wife on iPhone 5 - no problems at all. My daughter on 4s is having all sorts of problems. Her main complaint thought is she thinks it looks like her old HTC Desire screens which she hated.

How soon until the rest of us get a bug fix update, because some apps are definitely a touch rough around the edges - I logged two Contacts app bugs a couple of hours ago.

 

1. You can no longer enter an address with more than two Street lines because you get a maximum of 2 street line fields instead of getting an extra one every time you start to type in the last one like you did on previous iOS release and still do on the icloud.com contacts "app". If you try and edit an existing contact address with more than two Street lines they show up in view mode but edit mode only shows you the first 2 so edit mode hides parts of the address - while it does seem to retain the hidden lines on save you can't edit them as they aren't visible.

 

2. I also found that using a bluetooth keyboard to tab out of any of the address fields in Edit mode crashes the app and throws you back to the home screen. Tabbing around in the same way works fine in the name / phone / email fields.

 

I also don't understand why you can't scale / move a photo you want to set as wallpaper when the parallax effect is turned on - it still prompts you to do it even though it won't let you and I had my iPad crash so badly it rebooted while trying to get an image to scale last night! I've since found out that if you turn on "Reduce Motion" (turn off the parallax effect) in the Accessibility settings then scaling / moving works perfectly but if you then turn it back off (parallax back on) it keeps your image but throws your scale / move changes away...

No fix for the move and scale bug yet. It's surprising how annoying this is.

Haven't had any stability issues with either my 4S or my mini. The only thing I've noticed is cropping of custom wallpapers but that about it (turning of 3D effect help some but not completely). Otherwise really like iOS 7

Answer: Backup your phone/iPad to icloud and do a RESTORE.
This will resolve your issue.

I don't know, maybe they will leave this for a while to encourage people to switch to the fingerprint thing.  It's certainly an obscure, limited sort of thing and hardly a real threat.  It's not like the world will end or iPhones will lose their secure status if it isn't quashed with the very next update.

The parallax effect relies on re-sizing the image larger than the current screen size, so it makes sense to me that re-sizing would be turned off when you are using parallax view.  If you installed a wallpaper and set it to parallax view for instance, and then as the last step re-sized it to fit the screen, it wouldn't actually have a parallax effect then, so stopping the user from making this mistake would seem essential.

If you are getting white logo resets there is either something wrong with the hardware or you have a partial install or something.  Think about it.  If this was a typical bug in iOS 7, everyone would be getting the same thing because there are millions of folks on the same hardware.  

 
You should be thinking of what it is that makes yours different. Did you jailbreak it?  Are you using stolen apps?  Did you drop it at some point in the past?  Did you do a janky install?  
 
Wipe it and reinstall from the backup and it will probably work fine.

The feature part of it is a feature.  The part where if you choose to use the feature someone malicious can get at your email and all the stuff you don't want them to get at is the bug part.

 
So its a feature- with a bug.  Having to disable the feature to not be exposed to the bug isn't really a good solution, no matter how much you love Apple.
 
That said, this bug like most cell phone bugs will get a lot of press from 'the other side' and will be fixed before it affects .001% of the user base.

Interestingly, I've had several friends and relatives say that they hate iOS 7. "Cartoony" is the most common comment and a couple people complained about having to relearn how to use the phone.

I haven't installed it yet, but I plan to. The appearance doesn't concern me much and the other advantages look attractive.

The cropping of custom wallpapers is on purpose.  That's how the parallax thingie works.  

 
The only problems I've noticed is that it's noticeably slower overall (both on my iPhone 5 and especially on my iPad mini), and that selecting dynamic wallpapers almost always crashes the control panel but it still works even so.  
 
I'm anxious to get some real point upgrades though, not just bug fixes.  There are lots of parts where they have taken away or broken iOS 6 functionality that bother me and need to be fixed.  iOS 7 is definitely a 1.0 product.  I don't think we will see it being smooth, solid  and back to the usability level of iOS 6 until iOS 8 really.  
 
I'm also anxious to see the updates on all the iLife and iWork apps.  You know they have to be coming as the icons stick out like a sore thumb at the moment.

I did a search for this and couldn't find anything. Mind pointing me to where this bug is documented?

post #29 of 47
It's no small update in file size - 1.39 GB downloading in iTunes at the moment to go on my new 5S.

I assume that means quite a few "bug fixes".
post #30 of 47
iOS 7 is horrible on the iPhone 4. I have it on my 5, but I installed it on my wife's 4 and she has tons of bugs. She's due for an upgrade, but I'm going to hold off for a month or so to see if the S is all it's cracked up to be.

It's solid on the iPhone 5. I'd go for it.

My iPad 3 is a little laggy as well. Guess it's time for a space gray iPad mini with retina! ;-)

I actually felt the same (cartoony) until using it. Now I get it.

I understand the reasoning behind it to a point but surely if wallpapers can't be scaled when parallax is enabled then the answer would be not to show the move / scale screen when setting the wallpaper as currently users are going to be sat there fighting with something that will never work to the point of frustration and a possible crash like I got. If I am setting a wallpaper and end up on a screen with a big label that says "move and scale image" then I'm going to try to move and scale it - especially after updating from an earlier iOS version where this worked perfectly.

The other option I can see is to allow the user move / scale the image with a restriction around the very edge so that the scaled image is saved with an extra area around the bit of the image that the user selected so the parallax effect will still work but be centered around the users selected area.

iOS 7 crashed on my iPhone 4 the first night, I was playing around with everything really hard.  That had me worried because I thought it was going to be really unstable.  But since that first crash, I haven't had it crash even once again.

I have just updated to iOS7 and I hate the change, the phone is too bright, too much white and causes strain on my eyes. Is there a way to keep old style design - like a custom skin with the darker back? Inverting the colors in Accessibility helps but it kills the pictures, I would like to keep the dark theme with normal color of the pictures.

Just choose a darker wallpaper.
