Anyone who has used a Microsoft Windows based PC for more than a few days has probably experienced the dreaded “Blue Screen of Death” at one time or another.
When one is greeted with a “BSOD”, the screen turns blue and displays a cryptic error message that even Bill Gates himself just might need an interpreter to understand. Oh, and then your PC sort of locks up on you, requiring a reboot before you can do anything else with it!
Well, there are now reports floating around the web (and in Apple’s own Support forums) that the dreaded BSOD has now jumped into the Apple cart and begun attacking the new iPhone 5S. According to those who have experienced it, the phone’s screen simply turns a deep shade of blue and the phone reboots all on its own. Sounds like fun, right?
Apparently the 5S’s BSOD only rears its ugly pastel head while certain apps are running. As of yet there’s little information to go on as to what’s causing the problem. Should it happen to you, my only suggestion is to make a note of the app(s) that was running at the time and forward that info to Apple Support to aid in their attempt to get to the bottom of the situation.
