  • iPhone 6 Plus Owners Reporting Issues with Unexplained Crashes


    Many iPhone 6 Plus users are reportedly have issues with unexplained crashes and their devices entering a reboot loop. At this point, many users end up taking it to Apple to get serviced, which is when Apple tends to swap their device out for a new one. Some of the users who are experiencing such issues are already on their fourth replacement iPhone 6 Plus.

    As of yet, no one has discovered the exact trigger causing the issue though iPhone 6 Plus owners posting to the thread claim to have nailed down a few common factors including: 128 GB iPhone 6 plus, more than 700 installed apps, apps can crash without user interaction.

    Some users are blaming Appleís hardware since the most recent version of iOS didnít seem to fix the issue while others are still claiming itís a software issue at heart. Originally users thought that a quick restore would resolve the issue but after some users made multiple attempts and nothing changed, this theory we debunked. It could potentially be app incompatibility with iOS 8 but with so many apps to review, identifying such a theory would be difficult to accomplish.

    Certain people did find that turning on the Display Zoom function helped to alleviate the number of crashes that occurred but the method is one that is far from proven. The number of people affected by the crashing issue remains unknown but the Apple Support Communities thread suggests that the issue isnít one that is widespread. Itís likely that this is the case because the number of people who fit the criteria of having a 126 GB iPhone 6 Plus with over 700 apps installed is likely a much smaller niche when compared to the number of iPhone 6 users as a whole.

    Have any of you experienced such issues?

      I've had a few apps just close for no reason(Facebook, Gmail, Twitter), but thats about it.

      Nothing like my Note 3 which crashed about 2 times a day.

      Lol!!!

      That may be but users should be able to install as many apps as they want without running into any kind of problem. There shouldn't be any kind of limitation. I also blame Apple for giving us only a measly 1gb worth of ram.

      I had 1 or 2 reboots of my 6+ with iOS 8.0. Was definitely a software issue (iOS or Apps, how know's).
      No reason to replace the hardware ?!

      I have the 16GB version and apps crashes quite often actually.
      Not reporting it because don't care to waste my time to do it.
      Reboot my device quite a few times already because of weird stuff happening.

      Something like this was happening to me. I had a regular iPhone 6 though, 128 gig. What would happen is when my battery got around 40%, if I was still using it, tapping certain things would cause the phone to crash, reboot twice, then give me a dead battery screen. And anything could cause this, as long as I performed a tappable action of any kind. Couldn't hard reset it. Had to plug it in. After about 30 seconds of being plugged in it would boot back up at 40% again. This happened more than half of the days I've had the phone so far, and it's been over 2 weeks. Got it swapped today. We'll see what happens.

      My 6+ did that reboot loop but only the first day. I've used it for 2 months now and it hasn't returned.
