We previously discussed how to prepare to download iOS 7.1, and we have suggested some tips and tricks for OS, now is the time to review some of the most common problems and how to fix iOS 7.1. We refer to the problems of the iPhone throughout the article, but most of the problems and solutions to apply for the iPad and iPod Touch too.

Problem: Freezing and delayed iPhone
A few people have encountered a problem that the screen just freezes for a few seconds. Sometimes it happens that when you open or close an application freezes a little, or it may occur when a notification comes while playing. There is a possibility that this is linked to a specific application, you have to keep an eye on what is running.
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep / Wake button until the device restarts and see the Apple logo.
Press the start button and be sure to slide to close everything that is not necessary, and be aware of this twice.

You can also try a factory reset and restore through iTunes or iCloud.
If that fails, contact Apple.
Problem: Touch ID does not work
The iOS 7.1 update is supposed to improve the function of tactile identifier, but for many users seem to have been a disaster. Some people have reported that Touch ID is now working much better for them, but others are struggling to get it to work at all after the update.

Problem: Wi-Fi does not work or is not available on the iPhone

Start by holding the Home button and the Sleep / Wake button until the device restarts.
Go to Settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings and then configure the Bluetooth pairings again.
Check the manual of your Bluetooth device. Is there a pairing button? Can you delete saved links? Is there a firmware update?
Try a factory reset your iOS device.

Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep / Wake button until the screen goes blank and exit the Apple logo to restart the device.
Try to restore your device with iTunes.
Possible solutions:
A solution through an update of Apple seems the best option. Meanwhile you should report the problem to Apple or take the device to an Apple store and show them the problem.
Problem: application downloads seem to be stuck in "Waiting"
Instead of downloading applications and installing the update, the application icon simply shows "Waiting" and never advanced beyond this point.
Performing a hard reset. To do this, press and hold the Home button and the Sleep / Wake button at the same time. It seems to solve the problem.
Open the App Store and sign out of your account Apple. Restart the device. Upon restart, log back in, open the App Store, and retry the download.
The automatic update option is turned off, go to Settings> iTunes and App Store> Automatic Downloads> Updates. Delete the application currently marked as "expects" and re-download the App Store.
