Does anybody else have an issue with the lockscreen? Mine doesn't allow me to skip songs when listening to music or alter the volume etc.. It's driving me insane.

This patch still doesn't fix the battery drain issue.

Where's the update on improving battery life?

Apple, please do not just ignore the iOS7 battery life issue.

Please activate the on/off switch for the processes running in the background that's eating battery life so we have the option of turning them off.

You have to play around with the settings a little bit, but it's just fine after that. It's the apps you're running that are sucking up the battery/cpu, not the OS itself.

Are they fixed lagging on 4S? iOS 7 on 4S is worse than Android... You answer your calls after 3 to 10 seconds, sometimes you can't end calls or phone just lagging for some seconds before it end call. Facebook is constantly loading something, and battery life is much worse than before.
