The Blue Screen of Death is no longer a Windows-specific error, as some iPhone owners have discovered. The iWork apps seem to trigger a reboot associated with a blue screen, indicating that Apple has yet another bug to patch in iOS 7.0.3.

Apple’s iWork applications come free with Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 5S, and the issue appears to happen when switching between apps using the multitasking on iOS 7.

The video below shows the blue screen of death bug happening on an iPhone 5S, when the problem occurs it causes the iPhone to reboot, as you can see in the video.

The Verge reports that one of the workarounds that seems to be working is to disable iCloud syncing (Settings > Numbers/Pages/Keynote, then tap on the “Use iCloud” toggle to disable it).

We’re sure Apple will be working on an update to fix these issues – we’ll keep you posted.

As iGyaan exclusively revealed today, the iPhone 5S and 5C will be available in India from October 23rd.
