Apple: Software Update Coming to Fix iOS 7 "White Screen of Death"
While Windows users often report about the "blue screen of death", iOS 7 users now have their fair share of the "white/black screen of death" too.
According to Mashable, Apple has officially acknowledged the problem and is coming up with a fix for the software bug. Based on several reported cases, the color of the boot-up screen depends on the color of the iPhone's face. A white face will lead to a white boot-up screen while a black one will produce a black boot-up screen.
"We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash," Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Mashable.
Any iPhone running iOS 7 can be affected by the software bug although there are some reports that the rebooting tends to occur when the battery drops below 30%. The update is expected to be delivered alongside iOS 7.1 which will bring some interface and design changes.
