iPhones hit with ‘blue screens of death’

Users of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone on T-Mobile’s (TMUS) network are reportedly suffering from random “blue screens of death.” Complaints reveal an outbreak of cases where the Apple device’s screen flashes blue right before rebooting without warning, according to posts piling up on Twitter and other social media, and first spotted by MacRumors.1411279189000-Apple-iPhone-Blai-1-

Shares of Apple appear unaffected, rising 54 cents to $128.70 the day after financier Carl Icahn said the stock is the best bet he’s seen since Netflix (NFLX). Icahn’s words mean something since he made a fortune on Netflix, a trade he exited this week. Shares of T-Mobile US are also up by 61 cents, or 1.6%, to $39.64.

Blue screen of death problems appear to affect a wide spectrum of Apple devices ranging from the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s, says MacRumors, and the restarts occur at 10 minute to 30 minute intervals. The problem affects several versions of iOS 8 including iOS 8.3.

Some users are saying they problem is solved by turning off Wi-Fi calling. Yet others are resorting to a complete hard reset. Quality issues aren’t what a stock trying to retake its high needs. Earlier this week, the company said it would replace malfunctioning hard disk drives in iMac PCs.
