My iPhone 4's external speaker is giving me problems these days. The volume is too low and soft. I am certain that its a hardware issue.

Any idea, where can I get it repaired in Gurgaon/Delhi? Which is a preferred and reliable repair center?

I would suggest to restore device as new, and then do not restore your backup. Use the device as factory fresh for a day or two, and see if the issue persists. If no, then restore backup. If yes, hardware issue, speak to Apple.

I upgraded my iPhone 5 to iOS 7 just after its release. After the upgrade, I am facing a problem. While the screen is locked, sometimes the screen becomes unresponsive. Only the slide touches to open the Control center and Notification center work. Even I cannot close the Control center. The solution has been restart. The problem was coming up occasionally but yesterday I faced it thrice in a day which had me perturbed. Has anyone else faced it?


I did Google around and there have been reports of such problems when the phones were charged using particular 3-pin chargers. But we in India have 2-pin chargers and also I have faced this problem even when the phone was not connected to a charger.

The same issue was faced by my wife a few days ago on her 32 GB white Iphone5 on ios 7.0.2.
This happened when the phone was off the charger and not charging. Restarting solved the problem, however I haven't heard her complain again or maybe she has restarted herself again, which I will check and revert.

In general, I have noticed that swipe to answer incoming calls when phone is locked is a bit less responsive than on ios6. I hope apple sorts these bugs out early. I'm on a 16 GB Ip5 on ios 7.0.2 and my screen has never frozen.

The phone becomes hot when there is high internet usage or when you play games. This problem was there before the upgrade too. May be the heat is more prominently felt because of the metal body.

As suggested above, do check out for resource consuming apps which may be running in the background and close them if unnecessary.

I also have the white 32GB one. I upgraded to iOS 7.0.2 now. Lets see if it solves the problem. Do update if your problem persists.

Guys just wanted to tell one more thing. This issue was not present when I updated the phone. Infact after update the battery life seemed to have improved. The issue has started maybe since last 2 days.

i'm seriously contemplating reverting to 6.1.3. 7 and the subsequent 7.02 is killing my iPhone 4. although 90% of the installed apps work fine (although laggy), apps like RR3, which used to work on 6.1.3, now have problems on iOS 7. in between screen changes, i can go for a tea break!

oh btw, the phone is sorta laggy on the whole

Can I owe this to the ios 7 upgrade? ->
Skype wifi calls' volume is too low! I had to press it to the ear like "anything" to hear "something".
Added- I connected the apple earphones..and voila! nothing can be heard..

+
agree to the above. My i4 lags big time during some non-critical activities..like opening up new browser sessions, opening time for some particular apps etc. (including fb) Else i feel ios7 quite snapper otherwise though.
Swipe to answer a call doesnt feel respnsive half the times!
Volume has come down a 'little' bit during normal calls too
General memory requirements has gone up (as observed thru Battery doctor)

There is no way you can revert to a previous iOS version, so you can pretty much rule out that option once you have upgraded - atleast not through direct means.

Also, over a period of time you have newer apps developed from iOS7 upwards, which wont be compatible with your phone. In addition, at some point if you need to restore your phone for some software issue, it comes back to the latest software version which currently is 7.0.2.

I have heard of iPhone 4 being affected with lags post the upgrade, and the solution for the same is to backup and then restore phone using iTunes as new, and then restoring backup.

Last week purchased the iphone 5 32gb and upgraded to IOS 7.0.2.

Now I have to restart the phone every day to be able to use it, if I dont restart in the morning my phone is unreacable to anyone who is trying to dial me and I cant make any outgoing call either.

Wife's phone is not having any such issues though it runs on the same upgraded version of IOS.

Out network parner is the same aswell, not sure whats wrong here is it the phone or something else. Have logged a call with the operator and they say from their end there isnt any issue in the network but still they will check and will get back in 24 hrs.

Apple store has suggested to bring the phone to their service center to have look at it.

Anyone else facing this issue with iphone 5 IOS 7.0.2 upgrade.

This isnt a pleasant experience after buying such an expensive piece of equipment.

This issue surfaced only after upgrading to 7.0.2?
Otherwise, probably an unfortunate case of receiving a defective piece. Itís quite harrowing when something like this happen to a brand new purchase.

Well to be honest, I got the phone on Saturday and the first thing I did was upgrade it to IOS 7.0.2 as it was the latest software update available from Apple. My wife's phone was already running on IOS 7.0.2 with no issues whatsoever for over a week.

I am not sure whether its the software as my other friends who are using iphone 5 and running IOS 7.0.2 arent facing this issue as I am.

Can be the phone, but I find it hard to believe that a new phone from a premium brand can be having such issues, if its like this then not sure what to say here.

It could be an issue with the piece you got. My iPad mini is on 7.0.2 and no issues whatsoever. Take the phone immediately to Apple Service Centre, and they should be replacing your phone with a new one.

I agree that its quite irritating, but unfortunately does happen with occasionally with all these brands (not just Apple). I had an HTC Windows Phone replaced in the first week due to a malfunctioning camera flash, and a couple of years back, my iPhone 4 was replaced under warranty due to an inconsistent Home button. Recently my wifeís Samsung Note 2 had WiFi trouble in the first week, and Samsung had to do a motherboard replacement and some other updates (their strange policy does not allow to do a 1-1 replacement, even in the first week of purchase). In comparison I find Apple products and support quite reliable.
