    Since I downloaded 7.02 many of my apps are taking a long time to open .This is happening on Wi-Fi as well as LTE . Any idea why?

    Open? As in start up after you tap their icon? Why would it matter if you're on LTE or Wi-Fi? Did you mean taking a long time to install, perhaps?

    If the latter, I've noticed it happen on occasion. Sometimes the install process will take exceedingly long, but other times it's as snappy as the shadow of the moon passing over the earth during a solar eclipse. It hasn't bothered me enough, but if it's unsettling for you, you may want to try a hard reset: http://m.wikihow.com/Hard-Reset-an-iphone

    When I tap on the app it opens with the icon spinning and keeps spinning for an extended period of time

    Spinning icons. Ok. Can't say I've experienced that. You have stumbled upon something new. Would you be willing to grab a screenshot and share it?

    Try a hard reboot by pressing and holding both the home & sleep buttons at the same time until you see the Apple logo, the release both.

    @brdmsd , are you sure you're not referring to the app installation animation, as shown in this YouTube video?



    Or are you actually getting some kind of icon spinning each and every time you attempt to start up an already-installed app when you tap on its icon on whichever home screen (or folder) it's currently residing? I only ask because in several generations of iOS, there is nothing that should result in an app's icon spinning, be it clockwise or counterclockwise. There is app "jiggling," which happens when you're deleting an app, but this isn't what you're doing now...

    If what you're getting is the animation in the YouTube video above, that is totally normal, except that it should only happen once, when installing a new app from the App Store or when re-downloading a previously-purchased app. This should not be happening every time you start an App.

    I can tell you that yes, for me, those app installations (and re-installations) have been on occasion a little bit lengthy, but it doesn't happen all the time.. Some of them cruise right on through the installation process, while others take a little longer... Hasn't caused major headaches for me just yet. I just set the phone down and go do something else why they come in. I have a fast Wi-Fi, so I don't see why the slowdown... In the beginning it was happening more often, but I think 7.0.2 has improved the situation somewhat.

    When I say spinning icon I don't mean the app icon. I mean the small spinning wheel that appears while the app( or in Safari the web page) is waiting to open

    This sounds more like a computer problem, not an idevice problem.

    Reset your network settings in the settings app. If that doesn't work, reset all settings. If that doesn't help, do a full restore.

    This is not a computer or network problem. It is occurring when I'm not on a computer network. It is occurring on LTE and 4g when I'm not near my router as well as when I'm on my network. The apps are basically pausing or sticking on the screen without opening. This is not happening all the time and I've done hard resets but this hasn't helped

    But you haven't reset your network settings, all settings or restored? Those are the next steps after a hard reset.

    I know what you are talking about. It only happens in certain apps. I wonder if it is just because the apps haven't been updated to work well with iOS 7. I notice it with the my AT&T app. I haven't seen this with any native apps though.

    Why is it getting so hot? Are you using a genuine Apple charger? Maybe you should turn it off when it starts smoking.
