iPhone 6 users suffer from Blue Screen of Death

The famous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) is no longer a Windows exclusive, a similar phenomenon currently affects iPhones. The culprit appears to be an issue of a telecom operator. Many users report they’re seeing a classical blue screen on their iPhone.


The iPhone BSOD means the phone has to be rebooted, several times, every minute and sometimes even longer. Not only the iPhone 6 is affected, also older iPhones.

It quickly became clear that a telecom provider is the culprit. T-Mobile in the United States has likely issued a wrong update that caused the Wifi Calling feature to fail. Once that feature is disabled the BSODs no longer appear, including the reboot.


It’s not the first time iPhone users suffer from BSODs, it also happened in 2013 with the iPhone 5S.
