Apple has officially confirmed today that it is working on a fix for the bothersome home screen crashes plaguing iOS 7 devices. Mashable received confirmation that Apple is aware of the issue:
"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.According to a number of reports, the crashes have seemed to affect every model of device running iOS 7. After the crash, the screen blanks out and the device then reboots. White devices show a white screen with the black Apple logo while black devices show the inverse. Apple didn’t confirm when a fix would be released, but it’s rumored that iOS 7.1 takes care of the crashing issues. The fourth beta version of the software was released to registered developers on Monday. A public release is expected sometime in March.
