Apple Says it Will Fix iOS 7's 'White Screen of Death'

With the release of iOS 7, Apple has completely revamped its entire mobile operating system and it has been getting some mixed reviews. One bug in particular is the "white/black screen of death" which suddenly will perform a soft reboot (or Springboard refresh) on iDevices running on iOS 7.

An Apple spokesperson, Trudy Muller, told Mashable that the issue will be addressed in a future update to iOS 7.

"We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash."

First reports of the bug were reported on Apple's discussion forums, as early as September. Based on multiple reports, the colour of the boot screen will depend on the colour of your iPhone. An iPhone with a white face will show a white boot screen with a black Apple logo, while a black-faced iPhone will show a black boot screen with a white Apple logo.

The bug seems to be prevalent on iPhone users using iOS 7, with various users reporting that the iPhone will turn off when its battery hits 30%.

Apple released the fourth beta of iOS 7.1 this past week, which is said to have fixed but not fully patched some of these issues.
