Blue screen of death… on an iPhone 5S

26 sec read

Microsoft has often been mocked for their famous “blue screen of death” that often signified a catastrophic failure in their operating system. Now, new iPhones may be experiencing the same thing… sort of.

A number of iPhone 5s owners are reporting that their new smartphones are displaying the feared “blue screen of death” (BSOD) after using certain apps, and then launching into a reboot.

The glitch appeared to primarily affect those using Apple’s Numbers, Pages, or Keynote apps, but others saw the BSOD while using FaceTime, Safari, the camera, and other apps. In videos posted to YouTube (like the one below), the BSOD lasts only a second or two before the screen goes black, and the Apple logo appears, signifying a reboot.
