    It was working fine and I left it locked for a while as I was doing other things. Minutes later as I was going to access the lock screen it was completely unresponsive and the screen was black. I had to perform a hard restart to get the phone to work again.

    Has anyone had this issue with their 5s yet? Do you think it's an iOS or a hardware issue? I'm on 7.0.1 btw and if it's a hardware issue, I guess I will have to take this phone back to Apple.

    I think I've experienced this on my jail broken 5 before, but I'm not too sure.

    I'd say its simply that iOS 7 bugs are still being ironed out. Give it time.

    With my 5s I've had three separate incidents of randomness:
    - safari crash after pressing the back button
    - 5s rebooted after I pressed the home button
    - double clicked home button to change song and home went unresponsive for a few seconds but would then "catch up" of sorts

    Definitely not a hardware issue though IMO.

    Ahhhhh I was thinking it's just the OS too. If problems persist after a major software update then I guess taking it in will be my option! My only qualm is I put my Spigen GLAS.t on it already . They're not reusable!

    Eek! :eek:

    I'm sure it's just a OS issue, give it time for the 7.1.3 or whatever Apple pushes out eventually.

    These sort of bugs happen with every new iOS release (4, 5, 6, etc).

    Ahhhhh you're probably right. That and iOS 7 was essentially redone from the ground up so there will be bugs like this.

    Let's hope for the best lol, thank you for the input :D
