If you’ve been using iOS 7 for a while, you may have experienced a random software reboot, which has sometimes been referred to as the ‘white screen of death,’ parodying the famous ‘blue screen of death’ found on Windows machines. Fortunately, Apple has been hard at work, has acknowledged the issue, and has claimed that a fix is on the way for iOS 7 users.
Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Mashable, “We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash.” It is unknown exactly what causes the issue, but can reportedly occur on any iPhone running iOS 7, and is most common when the battery of the device is around the 30% mark. The bug fix is expected to be included in the next big iOS update, iOS 7.1, which is currently in beta testing with registered developers.
Have you experienced Apple’s random home screen crashes? I know I have, and it is pretty frustrating to have to wait while the device reboots due to a software bug. If you’ve experienced the bug, let us know by dropping a comment below, or tweeting me at @TiP_Griffin.
