Is your iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, or iPhone 5C randomly crashing, rebooting and sending you back to the home screen? Don’t fret, a fix is on the way.
“We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash,” Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller confirmed to Mashable.
iPhone owners have been complaining about the crash-and-reboot problem since iOS 7 was first rolled out in September:
Just had one of those iPhone 5s random crashes. Switched to Facebook, blackness with an apple. @carl said if no PIN req, wasn’t full reboot.

Six years of using an iPhone and I’ve seen a full crash/reboot maybe twice. Since iOS7 came out, it’s been 3-4x per week. Both 5 & 5s models

Hm iPhone 5s seems to reboot spontaneously at least once a day… Feels like windows 95.
