4 Annoying Little Quirks of iOS 7

Many are impressed with the new design of iOS 7 and drool over its new features, although it is taking time for others to get used to the major change. The fact that not all is good with the new OS can make adjusting even more difficult.

Adoption rates for iOS 7 remain impressively high. The download rates are causing internet services to be overwhelmed. There have been mixed feelings about this newly designed OS. Some love it, some hate it, and some remain undecided. Nevertheless, there are a few quirks about the system that all users might not enjoy.

Accidental App Opening

With the new design, users have the freedom to swipe-unlock their phones on any part of the touchscreen. Not having the unlock be restricted to a small area near the screen’s bottom might be an enjoyable feature, but accidentally jumping into an app when swiping to unlock is not.

In-Game Control Center Opening

Many games require users to make an upward swiping gesture that originates from the bottom of their phone. Unfortunately, the bottom of the screen is also where the brand new Control Center lies. The Control Center happens to be one of the new features many enjoy, because it makes accessing music, turning Wi-Fi on and off, going into Airplane mode, and opening the camera app easy, but having it pop open mid-game is not so fun.

Increased Frequency of Pocket-Dialing

There are more features on Apple’s new lock screen, which can be a benefit as well as cause issues. The greater number of onscreen controls simply makes pocket-dialing easier and more likely. It can be frustrating, even embarrassing to accidentally call up someone.

Difficulty Locating Search

With iOS 6, all users had to do to get to search was click home, but now that there’s a completely new interface this has changed. Finding search now means swiping down on any screen, unless this is a communicative gesture in an app currently being used.
