Apple has moved to fix an issue with iOS 7 that had caused iPhone 5S devices to crash and reboot after displaying an infamous ‘blue screen of death’.
This update was included after numerous iPhone 5S users had been complaining that when using iWork applications and trying to switch between them and other services the iPhone 5S would flash up a blue screen before rebooting.
Apple forums have been awash with complaints from users reporting the issue. “I just got the new iPhone 5. When using my phone going in and out of apps, my phone's screen will suddenly turn solid blue for about two seconds then the Apple logo will appear and it restarts my phone,” wrote one.
“My iphone 5S (iOS 7, 32GB) screen turns blue and reboots when I exit the Numbers app made by Apple. Other people seem to be having this problem as well,” wrote another on Apple's forums.
One user has also posted a video on YouTube that shows the issue in action.
The inclusion of the fix with iOS 7.0.3 is just one of the many issues Apple has moved to fix with the sweeping update.
Other updates include improving iMessage sending, reduce motion controls and adding capabilities back to its in-built search bar for web and Wikipedia searches.
