One of the most common complaints about the iPhone’s software is the tendency of the Safari web browser to crash.
These crashes seem to happen haphazardly and aren’t usually caused by using the iPhone in a particular way or visting any specific kind of website. This makes them all the more frustrating.
If you’re having frequent browser crashes on the iPhone, there are a couple of steps you can take to try to repair the problem.
If your browser is crashing regularly, the first step you should take is to restart the iPhone. Because the iPhone is more like a miniature computer than a regular phone, it needs to be restarted every now and then, just like your computer. When Safari crashes a lot, restart and then try to visit the website again. Chances are, things will be better.
Get the Latest Firmware
If restarts aren’t fixing your problems, you may need to dig a little deeper. In this case, make sure you’ve updated your iPhone to the latest firmware from Apple. Firmware updates not only add new features to the phone, but also fix all kind of bugs that could be causing crashes.
If there is new firmware available, install it.
This is the least appealing option, but if restarts and firmware updates aren’t fixing your problems, then it’s likely that there’s something else going on with your iPhone. In this case, you should call Apple’s tech support help line, take your iPhone to an Apple Store, or wait for future software updates.
