Blue Death Screen Plagues Apple iPhone 5S Users

Oct 16 2013, 11:40pm CDT | by

It was only about three weeks ago that the iPhone 5S hit the market, boasting silver and gold color options as well as A7 chip and fingerprint sensor built in

Already, users are reporting getting the Blue Screen of Death. As Forbes mentioned, the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) has not been a frequent experience since Windows 98, but now iPhone 5S users are getting it. Many of them say that BSOD appears when they use one of the free Apple iWork apps that accompany the latest iOS devices, but others say it happens when they multitask between apps. When the BSOD appears, the device simply reboots. This problem has only been found in the iPhone 5S and not the 5C.

Those who use Apple forum report the issue can be corrected simply by disabling iCloud sync for Apple Numbers, Apple Keynote, and Apple Pages. To do this, users must go to Settings, select iCloud, locate “Document & Data” for each of the apps mentioned and set it to off.

There is a new iOS 7 update from Apple, called iOS 7.0.2. It is supposed to correct a problem that makes the lockscreen easy to get past, but does not address the problem with the BSOD appearing, nor the iMessage issue. Apple has announced plans to release yet another update to repair the problems with iMessage, but this new update might mean that an additional update needs to be in the works.
