Apple today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

I haven't encountered any iOS 7 bugs so far. I'm aware of the lock screen bypass one.

The difference between bugs and features is often subtle; anyway, in iOS 7 Apple somewhat adjusted its device identification API yet again (in particular, apps cannot access MAC address any more). Apple has never recommended that vendors should use MAC addresses for device identification, but for vendors the decision always depends on technicalities.

For now, users of a few popular games complain that their progress is dropped to zero. Non-game apps are also affected.

Depending on your point of view, you can blame either Apple (e.g. for not advertising their changes actively enough as it was in case of UDIDs) or 3d party vendors, but the result is the same - users suffer. We will see soon how big the problem is.
