    My iPhone 5, a replacement unit from a day 1 purchase, has repeatedly started to enter a black screen state where the only way to turn it on again is to hold both the lock and home button and do a hard reset. Happened about 3 times in the last few weeks.

    Has anyone had any similar experiences to this? Not sure if it is anything to do with the 8.3 update. Maybe a fresh restore might fix it?

    Yeah, I'd recommend a fresh restore. If it keeps on happening could be a hardware issue of some sort.
