How to stop iPhone from randomly rebooting?


Since I’ve installed iOS7, I occasionally get random reboots, where the screen is just black with a white apple symbol in the middle. Has anyone else experienced this, and is there any solution to it? It doesn't happen that often, but it sure is annoying when it does.

iOS 7.1 is supposed to be out soon, and that might fix the problem for you. If you can I'd recommend sitting tight and then snagging iOS 7.1 when it comes out. Hopefully it will fix the problem for you.

This is a known issue, but I’m not sure how widespread it is. If you do a search for “white screen of death” you will find other people are experiencing it. Oddly, the color of the “SOD” varies between devices. I can tell your iPhone is a black one, because white iPhones have a white screen of death with a black Apple logo. Apple has issued a statement that they have a fix on the way, so hopefully you won’t be experiencing the problem for much longer.
