    Does anyone know if the upcoming 7.0.4 of IOS will fix this very annoying issue.
    I just got my iPad air and Safari crashes at least 10 times a day.
    I think this is the first IOS upgrade that actually broke the most basic function of the iPad web surfing. Never had an issue with IOS 6 and my now sold iPad 4

    Is it on particular sites? Or with having a lot of tabs open? Are you using it in private mode usually or often (when this happens)?

    Have you tried simply restarting the phone? Or even resetting your settings (if not even just reinstalling)?

    I have an iPhone 5s and it too has been crashing on me a lot lately. I have maybe, 8-10 tabs open and it's various sites I visit. This is whether private mode is activated or not. I've done a restart on the phone for now, hoping that solves the issue.

    There's a good chance that you are using sites that provoke JavaScript memory leaks.

    Safari in iOS7 does appear to be less forgiving in this respect. If you can determine whether affected sites (see article) are being naughty memory leakers in other browsers, that would be useful to know.

    My Air hasn't crashed in over a week. No Safari crashes, no Mail crashes, no Reminder crashes. Can't explain why. I use it the same. And I'm getting 16-18 hours per charge. (I keep my screen brightness fairly low.)

    Call Apple Support. :) They will do some tests and fix it for you maybe.

    Is there anything that can be done to help stop these crashes in safari?

    I am having regular crashes on my iPhone 5s, several times a day and various web sites i regularly visit.

    It happens frequently on my iPad air too. Both were initially set up as new devices. I haven't updated either to 7.0.4 yet.

    Not sure if this was just a coincidence or not, and not sure if already suggested in this thread...

    I cleared all History and Cookies/Data last night and there is a significant improvement in Safari performance. And I haven't had a Safari crash since.
