iOS 7 has some real nice stuff and lots if lovely minor enhancements too. But there are a few niggles.

So far...

Why are there still the 'old' tabs in Safari on the iPad?

STILL basic core apps missing on the iPad!

Real shame they've not put in shortcuts for turning on/off mobile data in the Control Centre. Much more useful for me than some of the stuff in there. Indeed post to Facebook and Twitter should be there too as they used to be in the Notification Centre.

Real shame the Weather app icon isn't dynamic like Calendar and Clock. Also a shame that weather in 'Today' in the Notification Centre is just plain text with no visual representation.

Intuitively I want to pinch to zoom out in photos to Collections and Years - so would like to see that introduced.

I also wish they'd also let you set as many calendar reminders as you want. The limit of two is annoying.

I thought all of the Apple made apps would have been redesigned - such as Find my Friends, which are still showing skeuomorphism.

Wish list for iOS 8 I guess :)

Anyone else got any?

I think App updates are much slower - I get some dated for the previous day but the time they show up - despite manually checking.

I'm also getting a lot of 'No service' and then jumping to good signal strength in the same location.

Not 100% yet but Facebook push notifications also seem tardy requiring a manual check.

I had an issue on my iPad 3 last night.  While watching a download in the App Store, the status bar was flashing on and off randomly.

I get badges on my App Store saying I need to update, I go to the store and there is no updates.

App updates are REALLY unreliable for me. But I put that down to the servers being bashed.

Definitely something wrong with app updates. My wife's 3GS with iOS 6 has Shazam v7 - but nothing on my iPhone 5 with iOS 7 :(

That is a known bug.  Was reported multiple times during beta.  Apparently not deemed important enough to be fixed for GM.

I've yet to notice trouble with app updates but Siri on the iPhone is super slow. And sometimes returns a message that my request cannot be completed to try again later. Never had that happen in ios6.

There is some kind of bug that was draining my wife's battery like no one's business. It was using about 10-15% of battery per hour. I went in and helped her cut some stuff off and it was much better. I thought it might be the new indexing feature, although I don't know that for sure.

Battery use is a bit faster on my iPhone 5 and after a night on charge I awoke to the battery stuck on 95% luckily unplugging the wire and putting it back in has seen it charge to 100%.

Another one I've spotted (unless I'm missing something) is if you expand the text on an app update - there's no way to hide it again? The little arrow disappears.

I've noticed my clock app icon animation struggling today - the second hand is jittery and going back a couple of seconds and starting again... over and over. [iPhone 5] :(

I have a lot of crashes with Chrome and opening texts.  Phone hangs for a while and then drop to the Apple logo.
