Well the only solution I found is to use my non genuine charger cable to charge the phone, I bought another off eBay to see if it would work, another non genuine that is and this time not only does it work but I do not get the error message saying it's not verified so may not work properly with the handset! My battery I would say runs down slightly quicker than before but that seems to be the most common issue since the upgrade, a few of my friends have experienced the same problem to different extremes. Try buying a cheap one off eBay and see if it works :) I don't think there's anything to be done about battery life, I'm hoping they issue another fixed version that doesn't drain the battery quite so much!
Thank you all for sharing though, it's nice to know there are some decent people in the world who are not completely arrogant and up their own *** :)
I upgraded yesterday and have discovered today that my spare cable (Not OEM) will no longer charge my phone. CLEARLY an upgrade issue.
Just the opposite of what the OP SunShark is claming that the OEM cables no longer work and ONLY 3rd party cables work!!! This proves it's clerly NOT related to the update.

You mean the kind who insist that longstanding normal iPhone functions are actually new bugs in iOS 7?
Even the "decent people" do not concur with your claims. > 100 million have updated to iOS 7. If there were a real issue about charging cables no longer working, there would be many 1000's of posts about it by now.
iPhone model? Lightning or 30 pin connector?
Be sure the cable in fully inserted. iOS 7 is more sensitive to poor contacts and potentially dangerous off market cables and charge adaptors (hence the warnings).
Also, blow out any debris from the cable port on the phone with canned compressed gas (never by mouth)/
iPhone 5 model A1429 64Gb Black, lightning connector
Of course, I do make sure cable is fully inserted, no debris in connector area, no other electrical problems.
The only change -- iOS6 to iOS7 update.
iOS6.1.4 -- fast charge
iOS7.0.2 -- slower charge, I feel it as about 1.5-2 times as slow (I didn't made measuments and now cannot measure as I cannot return to iOS6)
I have successfully charged multiple phones since the 1990's using a variety of OEM and non-OEM chargers. I use wall chargers, USB chargers, and car chargers. I have been using these specific accessories for 3 months and the problem occurred with this iPhone the first time I attempted to use the charger following the software update. That's all I know and that's why I, and others, sought help.
Meaningless. Same thing reported after other updates.
I know at least 20 people running iOS 7 on iPhones 4, 4S, 5, and 5s and iPads 2. 3. and 4 without any charging problems. There are now >100 million who have updated to 7. There would be hundreds-thousands reporting problems if this were a real issue/

I would be glad if slow charge cause is something like "battery calibration" or staff like that, and that it'll go away with time. Maybe iOS major version change somehow resets "battery calibration" (whatever it means) data so it needs to build up from ground up and that takes several or multiple charge cycles...
Slow charge is not a "problem" or "real issue", but rather an "annoyance". Most people will not notice a change because they charge overnight so just don't have a clue how long does it normally take.
As to false cause, that's not the case. Definitely, iOS 6 to 7 update IS the cause of slow charge in my personal case (just because nothing else has changed), the question is for how long that effect would last -- just for some time, until some bugfix or forever.
By the way, I don't see any battery life decrease.

Wrong. You don't know all the possible changes. Just updating, regardless of the particular iOS, is stressful on the firmware, and can cause damage. A known example is grayed out WiFi which has happened after every iOS update since 1.0.1, far, far more frequently than reported slow charging after prior updates.
Again, the problem is in your phone, not iOS 7. I suggest restoring the phone, first also restoring a backup and if needed as a new phone.'
If restoring as new doesn't help, your gonna have to live with it or replace the phone. If you're holding your breath for a "bugfix", make sure there is someone certified in CPR nearby.
Is this how you speak to people face to face? Is this an attempt at humor that I can't interpret through this cold interaction? Or do you like being mean to people? We are human souls here, behind your electronic screen.
BTW, WRONG. We know that these problems were caused due to the update.
Please be informed that you can do a google search and you will notice that there the new IOS7 MIGHT not work with third party cable.
As of why the OEM cables does not work, it might be due to wear and tear or whatsoever, the possiblilities are endless.
There are workaround for third party cable to be working. Just google and you will be able to find it.
The slow charging part maybe true too, I am not sure but my IPHONE did seems to take longer than usual to charge now.
It is an IOS 7 issue that many have faced and reported it.
For the rest, if you guys don't like the way someone response, just ignore them totally, be intelligent and not waste time on reading posts that arent helpful.
