Apple acknowledges iOS 7 random reboots, fix incoming

Apple acknowledges iOS 7 random reboots, fix incomingI’ve been rocking iOS 7 on my iPhone 5 for a good few months now, but I can’t say I’ve had many – or indeed any – problems.

But for some, iOS 7 has brought with it an intermittent problem with app crashes and random reboots. The good news: Apple has finally acknowledged the issue, and promises a fix is coming soon.

Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller has provided a statement to Mashable, and it goes a little something like this: "We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash.”

What’s not clear, however, is if the fix will arrive alongside the imminent iOS 7.1 update, or in a separate update before then i.e. iOS 7.0.5 (the latest public version being iOS 7.0.4).

Developers were recently treated to the fourth beta version of iOS 7.1, suggesting its public release isn’t far off.

iOS 7.1 features are largely cosmetic, with changes to the end call button, and a whole bunch of other stuff that your average user – myself included – probably wouldn’t notice.

One of the most notable iOS 7.1 features is an option for a bolder, darker keyboard, which actually looks kinda horrible. Eh, roll on iOS 7.1!

Not happened to me, yet. But the 5c I used would exit the music app after editing playlists for more than a minute...

An optional different keyboard?! My word.
