    I was having an issue on my iPhone 6S+ where the device would crash out to the Apple logo screen upon activation of TouchID. I live right down the street from the Apple store so I figured I would stop by and get it looked at.

    Professionally, I'm a Windows user with a pretty good understanding of how the OS works. For my personal life, I have a certain level of blissful ignorance when it comes to devices. It turns out, I was utilizing a ton of RAM and causing iOS to crash out on occasion.

    Back to the point of the thread. The Genius asked me the last time I rebooted my device, and I honestly couldn't say.

    How often do y'all reboot your iPhone?

    I rarely reboot the phone. The last time was a few days ago, when it seemed to be acting flaky getting refreshing emails. But for the most part, it just goes and goes.

    I have an Activator action that reboots my phone every morning at 7:30am.

    I'm jailbroken.

    Yeah, this is the first time I have ever seen anything like this. The phone would act like I just rebooted, but snapped back quicker and any audio I had been enjoying just died.

    Cool. Thanks for the feedback. I'm not interested in jailbreaking personally. I probably do need to remember to reboot my device about once a week.

    Believe me, I'm not trying to push jailbreaking on anyone here. I just brought it up because other than jailbreaking I know of no way to do this on an automated schedule.

    Had I failed to mention that I was jailbroken the next question might have been "How?" And then disappointment when I told you. So, I just decided to mention it up front.

    iOS manages ram very well as fat as I can tell. I almost never close out apps. How do you manage to use so much memory/ram?

    Running poorly written Apps like Radio.com for long periods of time and not resetting my phone. it is kind of crappy for a S series model, the problem appears to have improved.

    I had to reboot my device because it was doing strange things such as NOT ACTIVATING ANY ALARMS, a complete no, no when you need to be somewhere on time! It's led me to become filled with paranoia when such an event will occur again.

    Yeah, so I factory restored and the device continued to crash. Apple replaced it no questions asked. Still wish I knew why it happened, but so far so good.

    I thought this, too. Now I'm not so sure. I think I'll plan to reboot once a week. I'm not sure what happened with that device.
