iOS 7.0.3 Update Problems Pour In

Earlier this week, Apple pushed out a brand new update to its iOS 7 operating system in the form of iOS 7.0.3. The update was aimed at tackling a number of issues with iOS 7 including the iMessage problems that clouded the iOS 7 experience for many iPhone owners. Yesterday, we reported on several of the issues that remain in iOS 7.0.3 but it appears that there are plenty of other issues affecting owners using iOS 7.0.3.

In September, Apple rolled out iOS 7, the update that it announced at WWDC, and an update that promised to bring a number of big time changes to iPhone and iPad owners including a new user interface to go along with brand new features including AirDrop and Control Center. The update, Apple promised, would be the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the original iPhone.

While that is up for debate, there is no denying that there are some big changes on board iOS 7.0.3. And while most of the changes are good, we’ve also seen the other side of things in the past few weeks.

iOS 7 rolled out in mid-September and almost immediately, iPhone and iPad owners ran into a serious security flaw that allowed nefarious users to bypass the passcode lock and access sensitive files. Apple got to work on an update for that issue and rolled out iOS 7.0.2 to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners. Then, two more major bugs were discovered including an iMessage issue that prevented many iPhone owners from sending or receiving iMessages. Apple promised a fix for the issues by the end of October and earlier this week, it delivered a new update in iOS 7.0.3.

The iOS 7.0.3 changelog, which can be seen in the photo below, promised a ton of bug fixes for lingering issues inside iOS 7.0.3. And while we’ve been hearing good things about the update, we ourselves had great experiences on the iPhone 5 and iPad 3, we’ve begun to hear a host of complaints about new issues brought with iOS 7.0.3 in addition to the problems that iOS 7.0.3 didn’t fix.

Yesterday, in an effort to raise awareness about those problems and potentially help people find a temporary fix, we reported on various iOS 7.0.3 issues that we had seen iPhone and iPad owners complaining about. The issues, which range from IMAP problems to glitches in the multitasking to screen flickering issues were numerous. In the past 24 hours though, we’ve heard about several more issues that are apparently impacting iDevice owners who have upgraded to iOS 7.0.3.

Almost immediately, we were told by several iPhone and iPad owners that iOS 7.0.3 broke their Wi-Fi connection. We’ve been hearing about these Wi-Fi issues since the arrival of iOS 6 and they seem to be more widespread than many people believe. In addition to that issue, we’re hearing about two other major issues in particular.

iPhone 5s owners have been dealing with a random reboot issue. And while some users are reporting that the issue has dissipated, we can confirm that it still exists on at least one iPhone 5s in the United States. Our T-Mobile iPhone 5s is still seeing reboots with our own Travis Pope claiming to see the issue after the device has been connected to Bluetooth. We have been unable to replicate the issue on other iPhone 5s’ running iOS 7.

We also heard from one iPhone owner who claims that iMessage and FaceTime no longer work. He also claims that the problem has escalated into a much larger one after installing iOS 7.0.3, telling Gotta Be Mobile that:

I have now received a bunch of messages from people I don’t even know as when you try to activate iMessage although it isn’t working somehow you receive the odd random message (in my case from random nations I don’t recognise the calling code for). This is actually a huge privacy issue delivering messages to the wrong destination.

We haven’t heard about this happening to others, but we have heard that iMessage remains broken for some iPhone owners. His pleas to Apple haven’t gone ignored but support has simply told him to try and shut off his phone and retry. That, unfortunately, hasn’t solved the issue. Others are saying that instead of fixing iMessage, iOS 7.0.3 brought the problems along with it.

Gotta Be Mobile is also hearing about touch issues on the iPhone wherein taps are no longer responsive on screen and we’re even hearing that some updates put the device into recovery mode without explanation.

So far, Apple hasn’t confirmed any more iOS 7 bug fix updates beyond iOS 7.0.3 but we imagine that the company is still hard at work looking into the bugs that users are complaining about. Rumors suggested that Apple was hard at work on an iOS 7.1 update and it could be that iOS 7.1 is the update that iPhone and iPad users have been waiting for.

It’s also possible that iOS 7.1 itself could bring more issues to the table, just like iOS 7.0.3 seems to have done.

    If they can’t get it together class action lawsuit!! They care on there profits not the buyer!! I bet they don’t tell you how many returns out of supposed 8 million sold do they?? Just balls up and recall it and call it a bad year no loss all other sales like computer sales they don’t loose, I work at a apple store I know and see it all!! Apple will slip soon I see for every 10 ip 5s sold 3 come back!! No lie

    • IPHONE4EVER says

      OMG OVEREACT MUCH, chill out dude your the reason people jump up and think they can sue people over any little thing that brought them grief, oh no my phone doesn’t work let’s sue somebody!! Wow boo hoo suck it up things happen deal with it!!

      • Larry says

        Your to stupid!! people pay hard earned money for them, maybe we have the right to be upset

      • Deerfield says

        Wow Iphone4ever

        The problems I am having with my iPhone and IPad are serious. After paying so much for the product I expect it to work right all the time. I live in South Korea and my iPhone is my only means of communication when I am away from my house and when I am on the road with my small children and my phone decide to go Waco and cut me off from the rest of my English speaking world it pisses me off because I payed a lot of money for the phone for the simply reason that the product is suppose to be great. So I think you should be a little more sympathetic because you don’t know the stress this new iOS 7 and all it’s updates has caused people. For every I person who complains there are maybe 100 who have the same problem and do not complain in a forum like this.

        • stevecologne says

          I’m totally with you and I wonder if Apple will have the courage to admit their biggest mistake in years, so that we do not have to wait until iOS 7.9.99 to have our functional and most desirable devices again.

    • Joblo says

      I had a lemon iPhone 5. It was a complete joke. The staff tried telling me I didn’t know how to use my iPhone. Funny, I had used one for three years and knew lots more than other users.

    • Apple store worker and truth says

      Ya I been with apple store since 2007 and the 3GS and 4s were the choice best I saw with LESS issues but the 5 and 5s I’ve never seen more angry crowds at the store!! They get upset but I don’t blame them!! Only good thing I may go work for verizon and more money!! Your right Jamie screw apple!! Apple store has had more stress since last year!!

    • Derek says

      I still have 4s and it is actually worse… Device does not like itunes radio, sometimes cant handle three things running, and siri is even more retarted… She does it right the first time then two mins later is like sorry something is wrong… So careful what you wish fo

  2. Unbelievable says

    Hmmmm, sounds like there are a few rejects jumping on the wrong band wagon. Even Android and Windows faced the same experiances with their various O/S systems for smart phones.

    Claiming to be an Aple Store worker on an open forum is a pathetic way of trying to complain about things. Since every user can restore to factory shipped settings, and have to agree to use the FREE upgrade for your device, there is no class action suit to start….You do score a perfect 10 / 10 for foolish ideas. I believe that they even released the newest Mac O/S for free…how much is Windows 8.1 again?

    As for the claim on return rate, most often you find that the exchange rate is not from defects, but from negligent behaviours of the owners. Cracked screen, crap poured on the phone, used in the shower, dropped in a toilet, dropping it on a hard surface, keeping it in your back pocket and sitting on your phone. These are the normal everyday abuses this phone sees, and it is a good thing Apple will exchange your busted phone for cheap. Try that with an LG or Samsung.

    Im not a die hard iOS user…I actually use a PC and a Mac (Work/play and video/photo editing) have a few tablets, only one being a iPad mini, 3 phones (Blackberry for work, iPhone for home, and android for the Friday night “Excursion” phone that can be wiped remotely if it should ever fall into the wrong hands) all have their merits, none are perfect, you just need to know your application and use….oh, and always wait 6months after a product is released before you rush out and buy one. So complain, but don’t do it one sided, show the pros and cons, speak the truth, and wait for iPhone 6.

    • Apple store guy says

      For your info idiot just because I work at a apple store I can’t post here?? Let me tell you I hate it there at apple since last year that’s why I’m taking a job offer from verizon!! You go work there apple demands a lot out of you and angry customers I don’t blame them!! It’s apple they are for there own profits I see this and see how they treat customers that’s why I’m leaving apple I’m for the buyer if they needed a phone swapped out I would do it no questions asked!! I wasn’t by the book like most and treat the buyer like liars! To me the customer is number 1 !!!! So get your facts right!! If I were to see you and iPhone was bad I would swap it for ya!! I got a lot of heat for that but that’s me and I believe in the customer but not all are right just 99% apple has a dark cloud that haunts them!! And I hope it is well missed and loved Steve jobs!! Hinting Tim cook to get his shit to right!!

      • Connor says

        You don’t “see how they treat customers”, you see how YOU and your colleagues treat the customers. After reading your paragraph I highly doubt Verizon would even interview you, let alone offer you a job.

  3. Raifon says

    Strange all these glitches haven’t made the Appleitus users frustrated. BBM is a better tool with no glitches and is secure from NSA snooping. Apple sucks and every update they issue cause new problems elsewhere. The latest is their update for today which terminates the auto rotation images on the iPad. You can only view the screen in one orientation. If your unit went to sleep in portrait then that’ll be all you can use and if it was sleeping in landscape mode that’ll be all you can use. The information for those locked into portrait on the sides of the screen are no longer viewable on appearance, you have to turn them on to view on the narrower screen. Apple get your arses in gear or you’re gonna get hurt big time soon

    • Unbelievable says

      Agreed…Blackberry is tougher and better than many of the other lines of phones, and far more secure. This is why it is my work phone where it gets used and abused every day. Sadly, BB waited far to long to send out the new line of phones which are fantastic….but may suffer the same fate as Nortel, which is very sad indeed.

      • BJH says

        Blackberry is no longer secure, documents that surfaced through the snowden information shows that their firmware has been recently cracked by the NSA, as well as their email system, which Blackberry boasted as the most secure on the market.

    • IPHONE4EVER says

      The only truthful thing you said was TOOL, yes that phone is a TOOL, lol IPHONE4EVER!! Woo hoo!!!

  4. Beth says

    What about the changes with 7.0 that aren’t glitches per se, but just terrible design flaws with no attention paid to visual ergonomics or how form follows… yes, good old function. Spidery thin fonts – and bolding only helps in some places, but not on tabs in Safari or other places. There are a host of similar issues. Are iPad developers 20-somethings, who like Peter Pan, don’t think they will ever grow up to have less than great vision?

    What about issues with the standalone keyboard since the update? It used to be if you wanted to delete a line, a title in email, etc., you could hit command delete. Now that doesn’t work on email subject lines.

    One step forward and two back.

  5. kevin says

    my classmate’s step-sister makes $61/hour on the laptop. She has been out of a job for 10 months but last month her pay was $17739 just working on the laptop for a few hours. this content……….. http://iop.li/GW

  6. Frustrated user says

    7.0.3 got my iPad stuck on an iTune sync screen, and no matter how many times I restarted, I still get on the same screen. I had no choice but to restore my iPad back to factory setting. This means I lost everything from the day I got it to yesterday. I use my iPad for school works, writing, and sometimes entertainment, so this update has hit me hard.

    Please make sure, Apple, that when there’s an update, create a restore point for before the update gets started on the users, and tell users to back up their data before they start an update. A year’s worth of time spent on this iPad just to have I worked on gone in 10 minutes just hurts.

  7. stevecologne says

    CEO’s courage (or cowardice)

    Before WWDC in June I was curious and anticipating the new forthcoming iPad and iPhone and some moderate improvements in the next iOS.

    Now I am glad and relieved that I have our iPhones 5 and 4s and our iPad 3 and Mini still running on iOS6.

    iOS7 completely destroys the magic touch of Apple. It’s much worse than any Android Version. So, now there is not the slightest reason to buy any new iPhone or iPad, although there are some excellent technical improvements with iPhone 5s like the better camera or the faster CPU.
    Tim Cook and Apple need to reach only one brave and absolutely unavoidable decision:
    Dispose and forget iOS7, bring back iOS6 or launch a better designed iOS8 which cannot deny the similarity to iOS6.

    Only this would bring back the magic and the Apple touch and feel which we all love.

    Think about it, Tim.

    • Larry says

      Great post there raif the G!!! Even me we all are arguing over a stupid device apple or android!! I’m done here raif made some great sense

  8. Sylvia Muller says

    When I updated to 7.0.3 on my iPad I lost connectivity to WiFi. I asked Apple for a solution and they told me to reboot my router and then reset the Network settings on the iPad. It worked.

    • Iain says

      Maybe.
      The point is that it does not work for everybody.
      My iPad connects to wifi but refuses to connect to Apple sites at all… And is slow with other sites.
      Issue happens with three different routers on two separate sites using different service providers. This is an Apple problem.
      The issue is not the fault but Apple’s refusal to acknowledge or discuss it.
      I like Apple products for personal use: but why would I spend money on systems which I need for commercial use with a company which is unhelpful?

  9. Team Jimz says

    I myself experienced the ramdom reboots with 7.0.3 i surely love my ios 7.0.2 until i updated my ios to 0.3 version. I hope apple will seek solution for this problem.

    • Jim says

      I have the same problem after installing 7.03. Did a software restore today and still does it. Only does it when unlocking using touch ID.

  10. Christina says

    I never had problems with iMessage or wifi connection until I updated to IOS 7.0.3 I have no clue what went wrong but I hope they fix it’s because this is quite annoying

  11. William lawless says

    Updated to ios7.0.3 on iPhone 4s and now iMessage not delivering messages. It was fine before update

  12. J G says

    I see on all these forums the apple cult just thinks that apple dose no wrong every thing is perfict . I agree that IOS 7 was a few steps back in time . They only tell the ups not the downs . When I was running IOS 6.1.4 I had the best phone out there so much so that I bought a MacBook Pro if I would have had the IOS 7 I would have not got a Mac . I have been having nothing but problems on my I 5 prox sensor , iTunes , slow safari , battery drain . I have started as new phone 3 times to try and fix it with no luck I have just about all the features turned off and still loose battery quick . Plus the Child like design of the UI make my great phone into junk . I will not download mavericks to my Mac I see a lot of problems with it too Apple is losing what Apple was . Like I said the apple only lovers can hate on me all you want when I got over 3G tied up in apple products and they do not work right I have a right to be mad and hate on them I can not afford to go buy new equipment .
    Apple is a cult the way some say there is nothing wrong but the user take off the blinders and see the light apple is going down hill IMO . Have a nice day !

    • stevecologne says

      Hello J G, I’m absolutely with you. For me it’s nearly the same, I bought my MacBook Pro after I got enthusiastic about Apple through iPad and iPhone running on iOS 5 and 6. Luckily, I could downgrade my iPad 3 after testing iOS7 for an hour or two on September 19th. Now our four iOS devices will remain running on iOS6 as long as possible. After testing iOS7 on the iPhone 5s in the Apple-Store, I have no doubts that there is no Apple-magic any longer. It’s really a shame.

  13. HelenE says

    I’ve been burned too many times when updating A
    pple iOS. I wouldn’t recommend any updates. Software team needs to do more testing before releasing updates. Also warn users about features lost if they update. I made the mistake of updating my husband’s phone before he went out of town. Now his iMessage and Siri don’t work properly. Plus all his notifications are messed up. Apple needs fix tess problems, a new release should create more problems.

  14. shazzan01 says

    I updated to v 7.0.3 a few days ago and since then my battery on my iphone 4S has been running out quicker, doesn’t last a day now whereas it would last a couple of days before!

  15. Stephen says

    My iPhone 5s has since experienced a few random reboots. Have it happened twice today, within a span of 3 hours. I noticed the reboot occurs when I’m unlocking the phone with touch ID. Hope Apple resolves this quick!

    • Jim says

      I have the same problem after installing 7.03. Did a software restore today and still does it. Only does it when unlocking using touch ID.

  16. RobinOfGotham says

    this new update also doesn’t charge my phone. as soon as the update finished none of my 3 chargers or computer would charge it. itll turn on if I turn it off and plug it in but it wont charge now. is anyone else getting this?
    its only a few months old and its a new out of the box iphone4 I got in march.

  17. GNiT says

    I am also experience problem with some wireless routers, I haven’t done a systematic tests in all the router at work, but I can say there is a good percentage of brands that iphone with 7.0.3 can’t connect, I won’t surprised if there will be a class lawsuit against Apple Inc in the future for the cost of extra data plan usage during this period.

  18. rhoyz says

    iOS 7.0.3 gives me headache after i downloaded it to my mini ipad and iphone 4s..the system is not working well unlike IOS 7.0.1 better…

  19. Alvin Todd says

    Random touch screen problems here on i5. Seems to not register at times. And it works. It works.mostly noticed when typing in portrait. It’s annoying.

  20. Divya says

    None of my Apps are showing notifications post the update. None. No Gmail, no whatsapp, no instagram… one has to open the app to see if there is any mail or message. SUCKS!

  21. Ravi says

    After updating with IOS 7.0.3 in my iphone 4s i have touch sensitivity issue, apps closing automatically, hang up, battery is getting drained fast and getting automatically rebooted… finally my phone got switched off and it is not restarting…..

  22. ArtVandelay says

    Same issues here since updating to 7.0.3. iMessage & FaceTime aren’t working, “waiting for activation” & just never activates. Tried EVERYTHING. The Apple Tech’s haven’t a clue what to do at this point. I’m stuck until they come up with a fix & roll out yet another update.

  23. zarchasmpgmr says

    The flickering has been on my iPhone 4 since 7.0.2, especially with CPU-intensive applications such as Waze.

    Another issue I’ve had since 7 came out is that when I slide to unlock, sometimes the slide only goes about 3/4 of the way; I have to slide again to get it all of the way across. Also, 90% of the time the phone does not recognize an upwards slide to bring up the quick settings, yet Spotlight seems to come up on any swipe that has a hint of a downward aspect, usually accidental.

    On a more troubling side, the problem that has plagued my iPad 2 since last April where “other” RAM usage (512MB, not the 32GB “disk”) ranges from 65-85% and causes applications to jettison due to memory issues regularly is now on my iPhone. I have Googled the Internet to death and I cannot find any documentation that talks about what this “other” memory is used for. I’d hook it up to XCode Instruments to see what’s there. but I don’t want to cough up the $99 right now to get access.

  24. Amanda G. says

    After updating to 7.0.3 my iPhone 4S suddenly lost all ability to connect to wifi, among other glitches. Thankfully it was still under warranty, and I am absolutely not updating my replacement 4S to 7.0.3! I do like the look and function of iOS 7, but I had to lose a day of work while waiting for my replacement phone to show up via Fed-Ex. What a waste.

    • Steve Cologne says

      During the last years I changed all my devices to Apple because I was tired of endless software problems with Windows drivers and updates. I was happy so far.
      Now there is iOS 7 and Apple has it’s own Vista and I have to look for better equipment than Apple’s iOS 7 devices.

  25. Sonja says

    Ok since i updated to iOS7.0.3 last nite i have that lock screen at the top and do not know how to take that off. Can anyone help me with that becuz it also does not allow me to turn the phone sideways for texting???? Please tell me what to do.

    Thanks very much :)

  26. CORNELIUS CONES says

    iOS7.03 is a step backward in my opinion. I like the iOS7 style (however it does seem to take on the looks of android operating systems, which is one thing that apple previously had over androids). Aside from the point, the latest update causes 9.23GB of space to be taken up by the ‘other’ category. I do not know what ‘other’ consists of but my best guess is it’s the space utilised by the operating system. I previously had music stored up to capacity on my iphone 4s 16GB (approximately 13GB worth of music) and now I can only fit 3.71GB. I looked in the usage tab of system preferences and it does not identify what is using up that excess 9.23GB. All it says is “13.3GB used” and “0MB available”. How do I fix this?

      Apple’s orientation towards the Android-look-and-feel is something which I will never understand. Apple was successful because iOS was special and miles away from Android. Now – with iOS 7 – it’s the same idiotic mess.

  27. Monica Rodriguez says

    Since downloading yet another update my battery is life is worse than before. In about a 45 minute span my battery went from 100% (charged overnight) to 71%. I even took screen shots just to track. When I first got on the phone I opened up FB and within in 5 minutes I was down to 94%. I made sure to completely close out the app. Sent a few text messages, logged into my work email sent a few more messages, completely closed out everything and down to 71%. My phone has been plugged in for the last 2 hours and hasn’t gotten above 75% charged. This is totally crazy!! Is anyone else having these issues?

  28. Speedy says

    Seeing as your writing skills are that of an eight year old, you should be happy you have a job at that Apple store. Your lack of basic skills should have you digging ditches or hiring yourself out as day labor. Instead of being thankful, you go online and slam them? Classy. Grow up and quit biting the hand that feeds you.

    IOS 7 is UGLY, its designed for kids. As jobs liked to say, always form over function and simplify and clean everything and I agree. I much preferred Apples far sleeker glass 3d look of all previous IOS versions. Jobs would be freaking out right now for sure!

    Ivey should stick to the hardware.

    I am having iphone 4s. I have upgraded it IOS 7.0.3 after that I started facing issue with wifi access. My phone always drop connection to the wifi. While trying to connect, always I got error message as “Unable to connect to wifi”. Is there any way I can go back to ios 7.0.2 or any fix to this issue? If I keep on trying, after 20-25 attempts, it will get connected to wifi but again will drop it and same issue reoccurs.

    Help is highly appreciated as I used to work from phone and it’s stopped as it is not getting connected to wifi.

    my built-in speakers also just STOPPED working after i installed the ios 7.0.3 version. Apple just told me to wait for the latest version update. and ill have to pay a fee to back up my files and for software restoration.

    apple releases versions wirh more bugs and charges for repairs?? unacceptable.

  38. Indranil Chakraborty says

    This is unacceptable with the kind of issues surfacing in 7.0.3 . I can now see the screens in ONLY one orientation – Potrait. Yes, battery is sucking out faster too !!! Apple should be releases the patch fixes soon !!!!

    What if I liked the calendar under the previous version? Why can’t Apple give us the option to select either versions of the monthly calendar? Does anyone know how to get the older version – pre 7.2?

  41. Bree P. says

    While the iOS 7.0.3 has fixed the issues on my phone that I was having with 7.0.2, it has created new ones in that it is competely draining my battery, I used to be able to charge it once per day (depending on usage) and not have to plug it in until later that night; now I have to plug it back in every 2 hours because the battery is drained. I’m also having issues with deleting emails, I’ll have to select each one at least 2 or 3 times and click the trash button because it’s unchecking them as fast as I can get them checked for trash.

    Has anyone come up with a solution to the battery draining or do I just need to wait for the next update to roll out, as I was told by the Verizon store?

  42. StephenH says

    The IOS updates have a history of creating problems with iPhones. I am not an Apple hater in fact I have purchased 3 MacBooks, 1 iMac, 1 iPad, 3 iPad 2′s and an iPad 3 in addition to the 10 iPhones. Currently I have (or had) 5 iPhones in service. Of the 5, 2 stopped working when updated and 2 seem to continue to work, the 5th which is my personal iPhone 4S has not been updated with the last few IOS. I am too scared to try to update my iPhone.
    The 2 iPhones that no long will work are out of warranty so I cannot talk to Apple support about them without paying $20. I took them to the Apple Retail store 3 times now for repair/replacement and they have reset them 3 times and told me they are out of warranty so no replacements. It’s too bad I am still under contract for all 5 phones, it’s going to cost me a lot to cancel these 2 phone contracts early or buy replacement phones with no contract. In the past when our iPhones stopped working when updating IOS we got new phones from Apple even after the warranty. Now that they are ignoring the fact that we have their phones being damaged by the IOS updates and being stuck with the cost to cancel service or replace phones I think I am going to try out some of the other phones and electronic products from other sources. It’s too bad for Apple they had me buying everything they made but I think those days are over for me and probably lots of other people getting burned by Apples updates.

    Aside from all the immature comments. Thank you to most of you who have cemented my “no update’ decision! I didn’t like the look of iOS7, and now I refuse to update with all of these issues. 6 was perfect, I never have any issues. I love my 4s and will not upgrade until forced to. The only setback, my iPhone now moves slower… #updatesblow
