    On my 6S it's either when I have too many apps open or when I have certain apps open that find my iPhone or find my friends open up with black screens and the camera app crashes. I am not sure if I need to swap out my iPhone for another one or if my problems are software. What do you say?

    Lately I encounter the symptom that apps like Facebook - Messenger - WhatsApp etc. do a cleaning while working with them. This results is a black screen with a spinning wheel as if my iPhone 6 Puls 16GB is shutting down.

    After the 'cleaning' I'm forced to re-enter my lock-screen security numbers to unlock it! Sounds familiar?

    Very strange behaviour indeed.

    Cheers

    It sounds like an app problem from the descriptions that could be causing an issue in iOS; which would be a bug.

    Hard to tell which app. Have rebooted your phone lately. I do about once a week or unless something happens. Some apps just do not behave.

    Clear app data cache
    Uninstall and reinstall
    Do a system reinstall
    Wipe phone and setup as new
    How long have you used it?
    Fb is a resource and memory hog.
    Close app doesnt help?
    How much free space on the phone?

    10.3 went okay? or is that when this began?

    I have almost 12.5 GB's free. I do not think the problem is FB given that I hardly use FB. I think it's one of the dating sites on am on. So I closed the apps and will only access the site on my Mac for my test.

    FB is always on and running in background.

    So might other apps.

    Try uninstallinv FB and go down the list to find the culprit(s).

    FB may be the problem? Why do you suggest that?

    Did you jailbreak your phone? Jailbreaking is a well known cause of instability.

    Not sure when this began. Closing apps does help but which app is causing the issues is the question.

    Apps that more or less constantly monitor the internet,like Facebook,what's app or messenger can cause problems with filled RAM,seen it on my iPhone 6 many times. I never found a really good solution,except to not use similar apps very much on phone.

    Next crash and FB may go. I do not use FB that much and with my limited usage of it, I can use it on my Mac.

    At the Genius Bar they told me that my iPhone and the apps crash very often because I wouldn't restart it often enough:D So their advice was: restart it several times a week! Well that didn't solve the problem I was there for but....
