"We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash," Apple confirmed to CNET on Wednesday. News of the fix was first reported by Mashable.
The bug triggers the "black or white screen of death" that a user sees when starting up the phone. Some users have said that the bug kicks in when the phone's battery gets to below 30 percent power. Apple has already released iOS 7.1 to registered developers, and the fix may come with that update.
