    I had my iPhone 6 plus replaced today due to constant crashes (randomly) and not being able to answer the phone at times. Also it would crash in safari sometimes and freezes up randomly. So I guess I'll see if this new replacement will behave any better. Of course Apple said that it was most likely a software issue, but after talking to three senior advisors at Apple after my third restore, they opted to have the phone swapped out. So I went to my local Apple Store and had it replaced. I'm flat that ordeal of restoring and testing is over!

    it is a memory issue.


    your safari crashing is exactly that. the phone needs 2gb of ram.


    this is not software, because everyone wiht a 6+ i know has the same issues. I just clear out active apps and my chrome/safari stops crashing until im running too many apps again

    load up a lot of your apps and then start browsing chrome or safari.

    crash.

    I don't have more than 4 apps open at once... Usually camera apps and messages app. That is not enough to cause a crash.

    I never close apps and I never restart my phone. I have about 50 running in the background right now. No problems.

    Is it a 128gb 6+? Apple used a different chip or something only on that 1 6+ 128gb that does not run as smoothly and has springboard crashes. Supposedly from what I read they'll be able to fix with a update at some point. I read that this morning on bgr so who knows if any of its true...

    Too bad it happened with you. There will always be some phones that have issues. Even a six sigma process has some defects.

    Glad that it worked out for you in the end.

    No, it doesnt crash, sometimes the page reloads when I have a bunch of appa in the background when I leave the page but thats about it, it reloads pretty fam fast, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have the fastest browsing speed with the fastest cache , websites reload extremely fast, but If i am in safari and stay in safari that never happens

    I share your experience. I literally have hundreds of apps open and some very resource intensive websites (theverge) and Safari never crashes.

    I wonder if some people are using jailbroken devices?

    Why would anyone have hundreds of apps open in the background?

    Just asking.

    At any given time, I probably have 60 or more apps "open" in the background. No issues here.

    I do not even have 60 apps on my iPhone, maybe 20 and even most of them are used seldom. I do depend on my cellular Air 2 in the field.

    You must be a power user! :apple:
