The update has been out for 3 days now, if u haven't got it yet, go to apple support and upgrade immediately. Apple still has a lot of bugs to fix, lots of optimizations to do, fixes are needed for the blue screen of death and battery drain problems to name a few. There are indeed a few problem which arise after this update, but the advantages outweigh the problems, so either wait for the 7.1 update or try the 7.0.3 Update

Although the iPhone carries remnants of the old iPhone 5, the chip set was revamped and now only time will tell how much driver and software optimizations can be done on it.

With this new update, Apple proves that its software support is top notch as ever.
