Apple finally vows to fix ‘white screen of death’ that plagues iOS 7

Apple iOS 7 Bug Fix

It’s taken Apple a few months but the company is finally vowing to put an end to the so-called “white screen of death” that has plagued some iOS 7 users. Apple on Wednesday sent out a message to several media outlets saying that it has “a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash,” although it gave no timeline for when this fix might finally show up. 9to5Mac speculates that iOS 7 users could finally get some relief from random crashes once Apple releases iOS 7.1, which beta testers have said “feels much more stable and less prone to crashes than the public release of iOS 7.”
