    I've had two re-springs while using Feedly and one using the Apple podcasts app. None from Safari as others have reported.

    A respring only restarts the SpringBoard without turning the Device off. A reboot turns the Device off completly.

    No reboots or re-springs. Only a few crashes of Safari and a couple with the settings app.

    Agreed. Not happy about mine especially since I have had none on my 5s.

    Understandable. One thing to keep in mind that's been pretty well documented that iOS7 didn't appear to be as fully-baked on the iPad as it is on the iPhone. I know that's no consolation and it's not acceptable in a production device, but at least it's an indication that it will likely be fixed in an update soon.

    Oh I agree and I hope so. Just odd that some of us it has happened to many times but others not.

    Feedly, kayak pro and flipboard cause at least 1 respring per day for me. YouTube (both app and playing in the browser) often results in a full reboot (with apple logo). I set it up as a new iPad too, with nothing restored from backup. Spent half a day configuring everything.

    Interestingly my 5s which was restored from backup with tons of legacy data stretching back to the original iPhone is fine. Very stable. Odd since they're both theoretically running the same architecture target.

    I haven't had my iPad Air reboot yet, however, Safari does crash every now and then for no reason. Some people think that the rebooting issue has to do with iOS 7 with the 64 bit processor. I have had the reboot issue on my iPhone 5S before which also has a 64 bit processor, so. I do think that could be the cause even though not every iPad Air and 5S is experiencing this issue.

    No, I had this happen many, many times on my 32bit iPad 4 before. It's a 7.0.3 issue.

    Also, I have had many app crashes on my 1-day old iPad Air today.

    I guess I've been lucky. My iPad air hasn't rebooted yet since I got it opening day. I've had a few random reboots on my iPhone 5S though.

    I hope Safari gets updated to be more reliable in the next iOS 7 revision.

    Considering my wife's Air had zero resprings and I am getting 2 a day, I swapped my Air at Apple. Hopefully this one does better.

    I've been getting the occasional Safari crash and 1 or 2 reboots. It is happening more than my previous iPad mini and other iDevices.
    I'm hoping this is software related and not a hardware issue. I have read at other forums that iOS7 is not really fully baked for iPads. My iPhone 5 has had almost zero issues with iOS7 to date.

    My iPhone 5 also has no issues with iOS 7.

    My 2 week old ipad Air, has had app crashes and also a few reboots. I called Apple and they advised me to get it replaced, I personally don't think that it is hardware and thus exchanging it for another one may not solve the issue.

    What do you guys think?

    Well, you could end up in an exchange/replacement loop. The replacement could have other more serious issues. My iPad mini would exhibit the same issues after upgrading to iOS7, so me thinks it is iOS7 not playing nice with the iPad or the iPad version still has issues. Seeing as how we're al getting the same issues on iPad, it seems like it could be software related.

    Personally I would hold off for now. For me, the crashes and reboots are not very often. I can live with it for now. If a software comes out that deals solves the issue, you keep your iPad Air, which you know is good.

    For everyone that is experiencing iPad Air reboots...are you checking the diagnostics menu and seeing any "panic plist" entries?
