    I was giving the ip5s and ios7 a pass to fix their bugs. But its been over three months and its unacceptable! Today the last straw was used.

    I dont have an access to a laptop at the moment and i use my phone to answer school related stuff on their app. After typing about two pages my browser closed down and lost everything!

    "It just works" not really!

    Safari crashes and itunes radio crashes as well sometimes. I use blackboard if anyone is familiar with it for college.

    It's just pissing me off that i have to re type everything again. Not the first time it has happened either.

    Sorry for the rant but its frustraiting

    I personally have had only one or two crashes on my launch day 5S. Part of the problem is using you phone for Blackboard. I know that where I used to work, it was highly discouraged.

    Crashes unacceptable

    The crashes are Apple's fault. Not obsessively saving your work and/or using a more reliable app to type it (and then copy and paste), especially after the previous crashes, is your fault.

    But yeah, they should fix the bugs. This is not Android hour.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Hold on, you typed out over 2 pages worth of homework by using your phone?
    Solve your issue the easy and logical way instead of keep doing the same thing and expecting different results. You need to get access to a computer.
    Even on a computer its always good to keep saving your work every few minutes. Those crash too.

    Notes app

    All of these could have been used to type your stuff and then copy pasted. They auto save everytime you type and nothing would have been lost. Same thing could have happened using blackboard in your browser on your laptop/ipad/tablet/etc...
    The iPhone is not to blame for this specifically.

    Crashes are indeed unacceptable, but you can't go to a library of somesort? I must admit 2 pages is an accomplishment for a phone.

    Post here are hilarious.

    I agree with them though. It's your fault, you bought an iPhone 5S.

    I returned my iPad Aire. I COULD jump through a bunch of hoops to minimize loses caused by crashing but I chose to make my life easier instead. I still have my iPad 3 too.

    I'd suggest you do the same if you are unwilling to wait for Apple to fix it.

    Anyone who is familiar with Blackboard is probably also aware that not only is their iOS app and mobile web interface a complete joke, but their software is just as unreliable on desktop browsers as well. Every time I have to deal with that horrid software, I always type what I need to type into a text editor or notepad app, and then copy/paste when I'm done into Blackboard. It's the only way to keep your sanity, and the only way to avoid spending three times as much time doing anything than it should actually take.

    iOS7 has its issues, I'll grant you. But you should be directing just as much of your anger at Blackboard, and at your university for committing to such amazingly bad software, regardless of the OS or platform you're on.

    I used blackboard during my undergrad. This was... almost six years ago now. I didn't find it that bad, but we also didn't really have apps back then. Needless to say I never used it on an iPhone.

    If you are going to type something up and it has to be on your phone, I recommend using the notes app. It backs up (not sure how frequently, but it seems pretty darn frequent). From there, copy and paste.

    I am not going to judge you like others have done. That seems silly. It also seems silly to say "get to a computer". At the very least it is completely unhelpful. Who are we to judge your situation? I have no idea WHY you couldn't get to a computer and I am not about to specualte.

    Your phone failed you where it wasn't supposed to. Now, it may have been the app. But probably not. I have had plenty of resprings on my phons as well while doing nothing more than listing to music, through Apple's own app. Has also happened to me while flipping through tabs in safari.

    To sum it up, sorry for your loss OP. And the crashing thing is a problem. At least it has been for me. Luckily I haven;t lost anything nearly as important as what you did. :(

    I feel you op. My 5s crashes a lot especially safari. Same with my wifes 5s. So what if he is using his iPhone to write stuff. I do it all the time and don't really use a PC. It should not crash this often.

    At the end of the day, despite what some may tell you on here, the stability of iOS7 is really poor. I hope this isnt a sign of things to come, I love Apple but their software manages to frustrate me more than please me lately.

    iOS7 has only crashed a few times for me, do not like it but I feel it will get better with updates. I am not moving away from iOS for these few times.

    You have few choices.

    Not had an ios7 crash before. If it's one particular app is it not up to the dev of the app to try to fix and ensure it works with iOS 7?

    I agree the crashes can be annoying. I usually average around 3-5 per week. Hopefully 7.1 fixes some of the instability issues.

    My iPad air ios7 crashes every other day. At least it starts back up fast. It seems less of a crash to me and more of a protective mechanism. That may be why its not fixed.

    Depends on the crash. If an shouldn't be able to make iOS crash. That is Apples fault for allowing the app in the AppStore plus a glitch in iOS.

    If it's just the app crashing then it's the developer of the apps fault. Who wrote safari and mail? Apple.


    I think its pretty well known at this point the 64 bit devices have poor stability. 32 bit devices like my 4S and iPad 3 have been fine with iOS 7.

    I honestly don get how people have so many crashes. I've only had a few crashes on my 5s the past 2 months or so. That even running the betas yet I keep coming back to 7.0.4 because it really feels more polished than the betas (it should).

    Apple replaced my 5s on Saturday and no crashes since then. I had assumed it was the software that was to blame, but apparently hardware also seems to play a role, at least in my case.

    While waiting for a fix, I suggest using a more stable browser, I like Atomic ( free ). Then Select-Copy often.

    Wait long enough for them optimize iOS 7 and apps to run well on 64 bit devices and they'll start to have poor stability (or rather, slow) on 32 bit devices :D

    Speaking of which, I get occasional crashes on Safari but only with certain websites that appear to be bloated. Looks and feels like it might be memory leak but don't know for sure what's causing springboard to crash.


    That's not surprising. The same bug can affect different units differently despite the culprit being in the software. A good example is the graphics card freezing issue in the 2007 Aluminum iMac. Same OS and apparently same hardware but different machines exhibited wildly different behavior.

    This is some rock solid logic right here. Isn't it nice how easy it is to prove something when you get to discard evidence.

    I experience multiple crashes a day, which is unacceptable. My phone wouldn't have made it as far as yours (two pages) without crashing.

    If I'm typing anything longer than a paragraph I use the Notes app and then copy & paste it elsewhere.
