    It happens on occasion... if it becomes frequent, and you can identify and replicate how and when it happens, demonstrating it to an AppleGenius would likely lead to a replacement device.

    just replaced it due to the id sensor. my other 5s did it sometimes as well. is it software or hardware usually?

    I found that doing a restore as new eliminated that problem for me. It would happen every so often, which was too often for me, and I restored as new.

    My first 5s did this frequently but I haven't had much of that happening with the new one I have. However, my phone did not want to turn on the other day after the screen had been locked. That was strange.

    Did you already get a replacement before?

    happening every so often with me as well. never happened on my 5. some people think its because a lot of apps aren't 64-bit yet, so something weird happens to cause it to crash. i can't seem to pinpoint it. though it happens most of the time in 3rd party apps, it has happened in stock apps as well, like messages, etc.
