Performance Issues - iOS 7 was designed for the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S models. If you update an iPhone 4 or 4S, you may experience slowness on your iPhone. If your iPhone is running more slowly than usual after the upgrade, try making it operate faster by turning off the iCloud Documents & Data option in Settings> iCloud. You can add additional speed by turning off Spotlight options under Settings> General> Spotlight Search and have it only search the items that are important to you
App Issues - Be aware that not all of your Apps will function correctly in iOS7. You may have to wait for an App to be updated before it will work. There have been issues with streaming services like Amazon Instant Video, Netflix and Vudu.
Battery Life - With iOS 7 you may notice that your battery drains faster. This may be caused by all of the new features in iOS 7 running in the background. Try turning off all the features that you do not need. For example, iOS 7 automatically turns on Bluetooth when it installs. You can go to Settings> Bluetooth and switch it off. Turning off the options as described in the Performance Issues section above will improve your battery life as well.
Leaving Apps open will have a dramatic impact on your battery life. iOS 7 has true “multi-tasking” which means the open Apps will update constantly while in the background. To close open Apps, first double click on the iPhone’s Home Button. It will then show you what is open. Tap and slide the Preview (above the Apps Icon) upwards. It will disappear when the App is closed.
