    Occasionally Facebook will crash bit safari does it far more often. Only thing I can see is a lot of Low Memory reports in Diagnostics settings.

    What can I do from here? Is it because I have a lot of tabs open?

    I moved this thread to the iOS 7 forum as this is what the Crash issue is related to. That said, there are thousands of people including myself with this exact issue. I don't believe the number of tabs open has anything to do with this as I've only one tab open at a time and still had Safari crash on my new iPad Air and iPhone 5S. There are a number of suggestions out there to fix this like; resetting network settings, clear cookies and data, and restoring the device and setting it up as new. However, I have done all of these with my iPad Air and Safari still crashed. I'm currently using the Chrome browser and haven't had it crash since a week ago. This seems to be a far more stable browser for iOS 7 than Apples own Safari, which is sad.... Good news is that I've been reading that the Crash issue has been resolved for a lot of people running the iOS 7.1 beta 2 update.

    This is when you have the Safari browser open and it closes out to the home screen.

    I've often wondered if these crashes are a result of the 1GB of ram.
    I know when I use the swipe back feature in safari I get maybe 15 swipes before things start to bog down and it seems to reload the page instead of being instantly available.

    For what it's worth though, I have the same crashing issue on the air as I did on my ipad 3. Same frequency and circumstances.

    Funny, safari isn't crashing on my phone. Then again, I haven't been using it a ton. At least it seems to be fixed in 7.1

    I've never had this issue unless I have other apps open in the background.

    My settings:
    I'm not signed in to iCloud and I have search suggestions and preload top hit turned off in settings -> safari -> smart search field

    This is really ticking me off - Safari keeps crashing-imageuploadedbytapatalk1387291511.488923.jpg

    Also I'm not signed in to twitter so shared links don't appear.

    I really don't know what to tell you. Safari works and have worked on my devices running iOS 7 and prior without ever crashing, and I use it daily. Low memory? It's possible, but could be the primary cause of the memory leak? Do you use any extensions or plugins with it? If so, disable them and see if that helps.

    Download Chrome from the App Store.
    Faster, full screen browsing and supports printing.

    I've never had a problem with Safari crashing on any of my Apple devices...so perhaps a restore is in order? Maybe a simple hard reset on your phone?

    Sometimes this occurs due to the spotlight search. Just a suggestion, try disabling spotlight search. It helps speed up the device.

    I'll try that, but I just had an app close on me 4 times in 5 minutes. Never had a problem like this before on my previous iphone.

    Maybe you should call Apple or setup an appointment at your Apple Store.

    I don't use safari much anymore but it works for me on 7.0.4 and 7.1; which is what I'm running now. Have you tried to clear your cookies/data?

    Yeah. Clearing the history and cookies should help.

    Safari is definitely causing my ipad3 to reboot more often, from 1-3 times a day on average. Often, it involves me multitasking out of or into Safari, but can sometimes involve a seemingly innocuous task like scrolling through a website too quickly.

    Not sure what the root cause is though. Insufficient RAM? Inherently buggy IOS?

    I started a thread about this on my own. I've been through about 3 iPads, did tons of resets, genius appointments and each one I've had crashed without restore. Sometimes I never loaded any apps and it still crashed. I envy the people that this doesn't happen to as it's the one thing I hate about my new ipad. So for all of you who it does not happen to can you do me a favour ? (A7 chip only ) go on twitter using safari on someone's page, tap to load a couple of pages and then quickly scroll back up to the top. Safari usually crashes at this point. Safari also crashes On a couple of sites I use for school and my local news and even imore. Quite annoying and I can't wait til it's fixed.

    Just did what you said and safari quit on me cause of low memory, opened the log file and found the culprit:

    My safari has only crashed about 3 times since my purchase of the 5S. I can't expect iOS 7 to be flawless. Cause nothing is perfect in this world.

    I don't expect perfection, but I do expect functionality.

    I too am having the same issues. My G4 started to act up and my contract was up and thought I would upgrade and now have the same issue. These phones are way too expensive to screw us over like this. I'm Pissed.

    Don't you think Apple knows this? They're working on it with ios 7.1. Trust me, it's a lot better than the issues I've been seeing on Android phones lately *cough* Samsung *cough*

    Usually a number will pop up and call it on same phone. It will cost 49.95!!!! but they fix it an give you a 90 day service. My Safari crashed as I was looking for a dark background for my apps. Ridiculous. 50 bucks! I will contact Apple, you should too! Be sure to close all pages you were on!
