    The lack of RAM (and I have to assume it is - since I've not had this issue at all on iPad Air 2) is causing this error far, far too often on my iPhone 6 Plus. At least several times a day (not to mention the incessant tab reloads) on more content-rich web sites.

    Just seems a real shame that a month after the iPhone 6 line is released with 1GB, the Air 2 is released with 2GB. Now, I fully understand that Apple is a business, and - after all - they need to sell us something next year. But this Safari "crashing" is significantly worse on the 6 Plus than any previous model.

    And before anyone says 8.1.1 will fix it - it doesn't. :(

    I feel the same way. My iphone has already crashed twice on safari. I've only had this phone since sat.

    Seems more like a software glitch then hardware

    I see this frequently on my iPad2 (Not Air). Very frustrating.

    Does 8.1.1 fix the lag and stutter on the Plus?

    No. I don't think you'll ever see an update that does. The next iPhone will fix that issue, of course.

    Happens to me ALL the time on my 6+. I also suspect lack of RAM is the problem, but then again this didn't happen on my 4S. I realize iOS 8 now makes each tab an individual process and that's different from previous versions, but it's not like my safari was constantly crashing on the 4S either... I find this very frustrating for one of the most expensive phones on the market.

    Only happens on very few specific websites for me, doesnt happen often, but for one website it happens every time

    ----------

    I have no lag or stutter at all on my 6 Plus,

    Im on 8.1.1 with Reduce Transparency on, and I have no lag at all, no spotlight lag/stutter, no rotation lag, no ui lag ever, just as smooth and buttery as the 6 I upgraded from

    Right. You turned off one of the features of the phone which is on by default. I don't like the grey bar at the bottom of the Home screen with transparency off. But yes, disabling transparency does address some issues. Not really a solution, though..

    Its not a feature; it is just a look; and I happen to prefer the black notification bar too so..

    It's a feature. But I won't argue semantics. :)

    I've seen this same thing quite a few times in safari. Never happens in any of the other browsers I use, but most apps that need to open a web page for something default to safari and there is no way to change thst.

    Same issue here on my iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.1.1. I've reported it to Apple through the bug reporter: http://radar.apple.com, however I can't repro it every time. If someone can get it to happen with specific steps, please report it at http://radar.apple.com (login with your Apple ID)

    It's funny that people seem to forget (or maybe I'm just that old) that 10 years ago we were using desktop computers with less than 1GB and using desktop browsers with multiple tabs open and never had pages reloading because of lack of RAM. It's gotta be something else, such as lack of optimization. Also Safari on the 6+ is extremely buggy especially in landscape. I just sometimes wanna smash this damn phone and curse Apple to the lowest level in Hell because of it.

    I experience this problem quite frequently too... Space Gray 64 gb plus on Verizon

    Also get crashes in apps (including Chrome, Gmail, and Safari) quite frequently when I pinch to zoom.

    I lock my 6 Plus to portrait because landscape is so buggy. Drove me nuts when I can't rotate my phone back from landscape, far too often.

    Also, it might be a lack of polish in iOS, but I've never had this error in my iPad Air 2....which has 2GB RAM. I'd love to know if original Air owners have this issue.

    On my iPhone 6 plus, this page brings up the error without fail in Safari when trying to watch each video in sequence (usually happens around the middle of the list), and it also crashed Chrome just from scrolling through it.

    iPad Air 2 same problem

    I am suddenly having same error message on iPad Air 2 on certain sites, especially AppAdvice.com. Also having problem with top half of webpages being blank until I touch screen when starting Safari with any new page. Starting a second tab or going to a second site will be fine. I am running ios 8.1.1. Pages seem to load OK in other browsers (e.g. Mercury) but other browsers occasionally crash.

    I have just upgraded from an iPad 2 running ios 7. I wish I had stayed with it. It was running much smoother and having no problems. I also don't notice that much speed difference with new Air 2.

    One final note, I am on my second iPad Air 2 because first one had similar problems including random crashes on various apps (which still occurs).

    I now think issue is with ios 8, not hardware. Apple has become very sloppy with their releases over the last year or so. I think they need to slow releases and spend more time fixing what they have.

    It's january 13 and I still have this problem from brand new iPad air 2 and iPhone 6+. I constantly get 'a problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded.' In addition to that issue scrolling gets out of control and doesn't stop especially if I try to copy things. I'm spending so much wasted time on these devices. Does Apple or anyone have a solution that actually fixes these issues yet?

    I wish there was a fix for this too. Happens every single time I go from landscape back to portrait in Safari.

    I get this error occasionally as well. I wouldn't say its a big deal. The pages tend to reload rather quickly. Considering all I do on my phone and how small the percentage of occurrence, I tend to not even notice.

    I get this all the time, on pretty much all of my iOS devices... so I'm not entirely sure it's a RAM issue, unless iOS 8 is underpowered on everything.

    It's pretty frustrating.

    It occurs on my iPad Air 2 with LTE occasionally too, with 2GB of RAM.

    I had this error and routine safari crashes until I started making sure to limit the number of open tabs. Nothing specific, just not dozens like I used to end with. Not a crash in weeks (knock one wood)
