Apple Says Upcoming Software Update Will Fix iOS 7 Crashes

Apple says an upcoming software update will address the random home screen and app crashes that many users have been experiencing since iOS 7's release.

"We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash," Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Mashable.

The crash, which has frustrated many iOS 7 users (including us!) occurs randomly at the home screen (Spring Board) and forces a soft reboot of the device. The screen simply shows the Apple logo and a white/black background depending on the color of your iPhone.

This bug has been in iOS 7 since its original release, and while Apple has released a couple updates to address issues the OS had, they have kept quiet on this major issue. Apple did not clarify if the upcoming software update would be 7.1, or another release such as 7.0.5.

We have been running the latest 7.1 beta on some of our devices here, and see a dramatic improvement in performance and a reduction in crashes. 7.1 is expected to be released sometime in March and features minor UI tweaks to the phone app, improved calendar and more.

Jailbroken and have not experienced crashes. Apple's just trying to get people to upgrade so that we lose our jailbreak.

Here's an idea, how about updating iOS 7 with K's idea along with a malware protection against trolls to ban them from crossing over to anything dealing with apple, even the sites.

If you understand what k is trying to say please translate for him if you speak his language.

I can speak troll language to but I pointed out what he really means it's just hard to explain, it's an idea for iOS 7 in order to get users so people stop complaining about downgrading just for looks.

K. Get back to your Samfag site cus no trolls allowed here. A commentator you never will be because you can't even have the command of the English language. No one understands you K so piss off.

Weird... Mine has never crashed on iOS 7
zetaprime - January 23, 2014 at 1:42am
Consider yourself one of the lucky few.

Long overdue for a fix, and Apple should have been more forthcoming about it.
K - January 23, 2014 at 12:34am
They will with this but it always takes time to fix what's broken, they will kick the os to the max if we can make a rumor to move every iOS 6 and 7.0.x look (apps, built in app design, control center, Siri, etc. to 7.1, this all is my plan but I have asked people if they'd join me in this idea but no one replied to me even on how to rumor or make a vid of it since then. If we do this, Apple can get more users to iOS 7 and users customize it to a whole new level, switch between old and new and now newest looks in millions of combinations. Are you in?
