    INTERESTINGLY... every new iOS update tends to ruin battery life or something else significant on the current generation iphone making users want to swtich to the one about to be launched. ios 5 did this to the iphone 4, ios 6 to the 4s and now ios 7 has done this to the iphone 5!!! i even remember ios 4 messing things up with the iphone 3g big time.

    New development - while my iphone 5 used to just freeze, it now shuts down every so often.  I haven't yet figured out what causes it.   Starting to get annoying...

    I deactivated icloud pictures on my iphones and ipads (4S,5,ipad2) and it now do not enter in reboot cycles anymore  ....

    But the ipads reboot daily at midnight (I must have IOS 7 Halloween version ....) !

    I can't wait for Apple to fix these bugs. I am surprised that the numerous developper have not found those before .... Apple should get a real strategy for testing its software ... I will wait december before I upgrade my MACs .... I am not sure that I will upgrade the beautifully functioning mountain lion !

    i am facing the same phone screen freezes after the miss call.....i have tried all ....restoring recovery mode all but still the same

    Same issue... no doubt Apple is FULLY aware of this.  And clearly they have no clue what is going on... since they have the Apple Stores still swapping out phones for this.  APPLE - get cracking - it is enough to make poeple start to consider a Samsung!!  And you are losing big bucks with "Geniuses" swapping phones to "fix" a software bug.  Or did all of these iPhones actually just suddenly simultaneously start breaking coincidentally on the date of the new release?  Really?  C'mon Tim.

    My iPhone 5 was freezing up about once a day since the upgrade to iOS7. I've been on the phone twice with AppleCare, plus one online chat with AppleCare, and have now restored twice. Next time it freezes up, I'm off to the Apple Store to get this phone replaced. I too think it's a software problem, but hey if they want to give me a new phone, who knows, maybe there was a problem with early iPhone 5 models that's been fixed.

    My Iphone 4 was exactly the same. Try going to settings - then Cellular - and turn off Cellular Data and turn off Enable 3G and then turn both back on. Fixed my phone and seems to be back to normal at last. Good luck.

    I have had the 5s for three days now and it is freezing.

    After shutting off background app refresh for just Apple Weather, I have not had a freeze-up in over 10 days. I also reset my network settings to fix the iMessage bug.

    My iPhone 5 has also been freezing often ever since installing iOS 7. It just happened again as I was attempting to unlock the phone right after I entered 2 of the 4 unlock code values. The phone was in its charging dock. It wouldn't accept any more unlock code values but did respond to pressing the power off button by blacking out the screen. It then wouldn't turn the screen back on, so my only recourse was to hold both buttons until the count of 13 when it finally shut down. After a minute I turned it back on and it restarted and is acting normally again for awhile. The phone has locked up with a black screen at least once a day since installing iOS 7. It eventually reboots itself if I don't go through the hassle of doing the above steps right away. Sure hope Apple can fix this soon! Also glad that I did a web search for "iOS 7 freeze" and found this discussion so I know that it's not just my iPhone 5 that is now acting this way!

    Exactly the same thing happens to me about 4-5 times a day. It is the very same behavior you describe, up to and including the two digits of the passcode that I am able to enter before the lock screen freezes, the sleep button only turning the screen black. At times, when the phone is playing audio while locked, it still can be heard after the screen has frozen. Additionally, my phone sometimes freezes when accepting a call, while i "slide to accept".

    There has to be some way to track down what causes this and fix it, if it is a software issue. If it is a hardware glitch, however, I wonder why everything worked on IOS 6. With iOS 6, I never experienced anything like this.

    I am so tired of IOS7 issues.  Its been long enough and my phone freezes all day long. I chose apple to begin with because the phone was always fast and problem free.  Now weeks almost months later the same problems with iOS7 are still occuring.  Fix it fast or I am jumping ship.  Like this post if you are just as frusterated as I am.  Maybe apple will see the numbers and get on the ball.  I have a feeling Galaxy sales are about to sky rocket..

    Since Apple care swap my phone, I am using the official ios7 what was preinstalled! Since 9 day my i5s did not failed! Ios7.0. works perfect!!! DO NOT UPDATE IOS7.0! Ios7.0.2. Is the reason for the crashings!

  • Pgoodman0 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I am sorry but this is not true. iOS 7 and iOS 7.0.2 both crash on some iphones.

    This seems to be an issue with *some* iPhones and iOS7. Just bring it to Apple Store. They will run diagnostics and replace it.

    I have found a temp solution for this problem.... all you have to do is use siri for making a dummy call to a fake no. and then the phone unfreezes itself
