Users of Apple’s iPhone on T-Mobile’s 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.
Shares of Apple fell 61 cents, or 0.4%, to $127.50 Thursday. That decline comes just a day after financier Carl Icahn said the stock is the best bet he’s seen since Netflix. Icahn’s words mean something since he made a fortune on Netflix, a trade he exited this week. Shares of T-Mobile US rose 29 cents, or 0.7%, to $39.32.
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.
