hi guys,
I've got a new iPad Pro 9.7 but since it arrived last week, I've had at least 4 random springboard crashes when it will go back to black screen with the apple logo and "reboot" by itself.

Anyone else having this issue?

Happened to me once today. If it where a full reboot or shutdown I'd be worried about hardware but a simple respring is just software. Hopefully it will be fixed in an update.

Took mine back to apple after using online chat and they replaced it will see if that helps. So far no crashes but just got it last night.

Got a replacement from apple after about 5 hours usage it had a crash. I think it is probably software hopefully an update will fix it.

Set up mine as new when I got it on launch day and I've had 3 or 4 Springboard crashes, but none in the last week or so.

I just had one right now...

Was in splitscreen with Safari and Notability (recording audio), and suddenly BOOM.

* Apple Logo *

* Enter passcode *

I am pretty sure that this is the first time, that I can remember.

We do have to remember that sometimes little hiccups do happen. Let's face it, some other operating systems with problems like this would fall completely, iOS just had a micro sleep and is back okay.

It's back okay... but probably you lost the work you was doing. That's unacceptable for me in a device that is sold as a productive machine; I can't rely on a system where I lose my work once in a while.

And that doesn't happen to me in much cheaper devices. I pay (a huge) extra for superb quality.

On this occasion I didn't loose anything...

This is the first example I've really had of this on iOS and it didn't do much other than inconvenience me for 20 seconds.
Yesterday however, my MacBook had El Cap completely pooped itself.

Had a runaway distnoted process, that eventually fixed itself, then all of the sidebar items in finder disappeared, and nothing would save. I'd written a five page report and pages just refused to do anything with it... Ended up having to copy and paste it to email it to my iPad Pro (ironically).

Eventually the MacBook just ground into a huge gridlock, I closed the lid and it just never woke up from sleep. Had to hard reset it, and that's when I did loose work.

It's all relative, and I find that iOS and iDevices tend to be much more rock solid than Mac and OS X.

Edit: spelling.

Happened to me twice in 7 days.

I'd say it's a bug which will be fixed and nothing to do with the RAM (though I would have indeed liked 4GB).

When the iPad Air was released it kept crashing in the same way and people were blaming the RAM (me included), but after a few iOS iterations it stopped.
