Apple users have found a new (and somewhat familiar) flaw in the iPhone 5S: the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).
According to The Verge, some customers with Apple’s brand-new iPhone 5S have experienced a BSOD with a random reboot immediately after. It seems to only happen with the iPhone 5S (not the 5C so far).
A BSOD may be familiar to those of you who remember seeing them in old Windows PCs.
Reports say the BSOD shows up when using and multitasking between Apple’s iWork apps. A random reboot usually follows the BSOD.
Some users have already found a way around the problem, though. Simply disable iCloud syncing for Apple’s Pages, Keynote, and Numbers apps, and that should do the trick (until Apple, hopefully, releases an update to fix the problem).
IPhone 5S users have already started posting videos of their BSOD experiences. Check this one out:
Just last month, users found another bug in Apple’s latest iPhone that allows anyone to bypass another iPhone user’s lockscreen just by pulling up the “Control Center” and opening the alarm clock to set it in sleep mode. When the option to power the phone off pops up, just hit “cancel” and double click the home button for the multitasking screen.
However, Apple just released iOS 7.0.2 to fix lock-screen security flaw. Hopefully we’ll see another one soon for the BSOD and reboot issue.
