Anyone having a freezing issue?

    I'm running iOS7 on my iPhone 5 and ever since I did the update my phone has random moments where it becomes totally frozen while asleep. Both the sleep/wake and home buttons do nothing and all I see is black. My only option is to do a hard reset. This happens about 5-6 times a day.

    I use my iPhone as my alarm clock so I'm worried it's going to do this in the middle of the night and I'll end up oversleeping. Has anyone encountered this issue at all?

    Yep, same here. My wife's iPhone 5 and iPad mini had exactly the same symptoms. I ended up restoring both devices and set them up as new and they have been fine ever since. Not sure why it happened though....

    Gotcha. I was trying to avoid a restore from new but I guess that's what is looking to be the fix.

    My 4S did this on iOS 6.1.3, but iOS 7 does have the same issue. It does however randomly reboot 5 times a day where it's out for 5-7 min.

    I have a separate post on this... Stalls and freezes pretty often after update to iOS 7, did not do this with iOS 6.

    The battery life has improved quite a lot too :)

    I've had no such issues on my iPad 3. My iPhone 5 is still on iOS 6 so I can't comment on that as I'm waiting for my 5S.

    Using iOS 7 from the beginning on my iPhone 5, never had this issue. Installed iOS7 as new

    had that issue on my iphone 4 during beta 1 to 3 or so. but AFAIK it didn't affect other iPhones then.
