    my new iPad Mini Retina is repeatedly crashing under 7.0.4 after iOS update

    especially when browsing settings :mad:

    Mine has crashed a time or two when using Safari, but it's definitely not all the time.

    No issues w/ mine. Perhaps you should do a DFU restore and then a clean install. This often helps.

    Does any one thing cause it to crash in settings? I know if you tap Wallpaper twice, it'll close out of settings. My rMini might have closed out of Safari twice in four days, my 64GB Air 5 times in one month, and the 128GB Air I bought over the weekend closed out of Safari once. Walmart and Facebook are the two culprits in my case. Running 7.0.4......

    it crashes randomly

    just installed the app 500px, i was using it and it suddenly crashed :eek:

    ----------

    does restoring it solve anything as it is brand new ?

    I always do it as a new install. I'm always afraid some bad mojo is going to follow. ;)

    Thank god I chose to google 7.0.4 when I got the new update red icon in settings on my new Retina Mini! I never upgrade before thoroughly searching if people are having problems.

    Hopefully 7.1 will be better but for now, I'm sticking with 7.0.3

    i have this bad habit of always updating my macs and idevices, but next time i'll wait before doing it

    anyway, i have been using it since last night, watched a lot of movies, browsing the web

    no more crash since i restored the ipad

    fingers crossed

    because of a slight yellow tint on the bottom of the screen, i had my RMini exchanged

    screen is perfect, but this new one is also crashing again :mad:

    Your new one came with 7.0.4?? I upgraded to the 32GB version last night, saw that it was on 7.0.3 to my relief.

    My mini was crashing OOTB. Did a DFU restore and all was fine!

    I have a feeling there's a slightly duff restore image being used in one factory.

    I got my new iPad mini2 (16G wifi with 7.0.4 preinstalled) on Jan 14. It constantly crashes and reboots. I've tried reseting the iPad both from iPad itself and from the iTunes application but the problem is still there. Wondering if it's a hardware issue so I may return it back to Apple.

    How many crashes? I have had mine since they became available and I have had 7 crashes. Most happen in the app switcher.
