Apple to finally fix random rebooting in iOS 7 and other news from Jan. 22, 2014

Apple has acknowledged one of the biggest frustrations for iOS 7 users -- the soft rebooting of the phone that happens at random times. Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller told Mashable that the soft reboot issue should be resolved in an iOS 7 update. She did not indicate if it was part of the current beta, but if you want to put stock in rumors, the update will coincide with iOS 7.1's release.

While some people said the glitch might be tied into battery usage, I've found that it could happen with anything ranging from checking email to quick-switching between apps. Our readers were noticing reboots happening when they listened to music or doing other simple tasks. Where have you found it?
