    I got some interesting experience. I thought it was normal for my iPad to crash (reboot by itself) from time to time. Sold my iPad air, and got a bigger cap. To my surprise, my new 64GB wifi had been running quite smoothly the past week with ZERO crash.

    It is still running 7.0.3 though. I wonder if it is the 7.0.4 that got the crash bug, or if it is somehow bug related.

    Little know fact that the 64GB iPad comes with more RAM. That's why its a better value then most people think.

    :-D

    Should return ASAP, if your new iPad air isn't crashing there is something wrong with it.

    On a serious note did you do anything differently like not restore from a backup or something? The bigger size should not make any difference, maybe there was a particular bug in .04 that you were triggering to cause yours to crash...who knows :). Enjoy it (while it lasts :p)

    I haven't had any issues with the iPad Air. I've setup over 200 and use one personally. All running iOS7.0.4

    I've read complaints in the forums, but haven't received a single ticket request for crashed or stuck iPad Air. They have only been deployed for about a month, maybe it takes a little more time for them to get twitchy.

    I don't think it comes with bigger RAM. Was totally expecting it to crash from time to time due to experience. We'll see as time progress if the crashing experience come back.

    ----------

    I didn't do anything differently. I did restore from back up as usual. The only thing difference is, it is still at 7.0.3. I wonder if 7.0.4 is the culprit of all the crashing.

    I am going to keep it at 7.0.3 for a while. I really don't want to jinx it by going up to 7.0.4.

    My 64GB Air has never crashed. Safari has, but not iOS.

    I somehow doubt this having yet to read about it -- and I've read a lot about the Air including Arstechnica's tome. Certainly it's not "fact," but if you have a link to legit teardown documenting this hidden gem I'd love to read it.

    My wife and I have a 64GB and 128GB Air, and neither has ever crashed to a reboot. Safari has closed out a few times on each, but that's it. We use these extensively, and neither of us closes apps with any degree of regularity. I'm often surprised to see how many are open when I do close them!

    I haven't really had an issue with apps crashing with my 128GB, but it has happened. Maybe 1-2 times a week.

    What I've actually had happen more often, but still not very often, is for the UI to re-spring. This is usually while trying to switch apps and sometimes happens when just hitting the home button. Apple logo pops up on the screen and then a few seconds later I can log back in. This is not a reboot.

    These are pretty infrequent and have never been disruptive, as in happening right in the middle of doing something and losing work. Still love my Air. :)

    My ipad air 64GB crash every day specially with safari . The iOS crash from time to time (two or three times since i have the ipad air)
    My crash log shows crashes from iMovie, Itunesstored, MobileMail, Safari, preferences.
    I'm really waiting for iOS 7.1 to arrive with hopes to get theses issues solved.

    I haven't either. Not a one. I did have Pinball HD crash a few times but they did an update that stopped that. Otherwise, nothing. Looking at the threads here, I feel like I'm special or something. I bought mine about a week after launch at Best Buy. I don't get it.... Why do I have the same software and hardware as everyone else yet have no such issues? Crazy.....:confused:

    I have 16GB iPad air and I have also noticed this. The replacement came with iOS 7.0.3 and I have yet to upgrade to 7.0.4 and I noticed Safari has yet to crash, one low memory. Granted this has only been a couple of days but with the previous iPad Air, even after a clean install, I would get crashes and low memory after a few days. iOS 7 seems to be a rushed out product with lots of errors and glitches.
