Apple is aware of this situation is is preparing to release a new update soon, aiming to fix the issue that causes iOS 7 iPhones to reboot all of a sudden. The update is expected to roll out in the coming weeks.

"We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash," Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Mashable.

Earlier this week, Apple has released its iOS 7.1 Beta 4 software to developers, which is the fourth developer beta and is the most likely candidate for the upcoming update. The build indicates that the upcoming release will come with several bug fixes and tweaks to improve iOS 7.

Apple's latest iOS 7.1 Beta 4 build brings a number of changes to the table, including some neat tweaks to the lock screen slide bar and the slide-to-power-off at the top of the display. Recent reports have also indicated that Siri will get a new voice for the iPad in the UK. The update is further expected to include tweaks and improvements for message scrolling and other features.

Furthermore, the iOS 7.1 Beta 4 build will also bring a small change when adding a new contact straight from the dialer within the phone application. Instead of the previous "add to contacts" feature, which was displayed under the phone number, the new release will display a "+" sign right next to the number.

While the latest iOS 7.1 Beta 4 would make the most likely candidate for Apple's upcoming software update, it remains to be seen whether the fix will come in this exact form. Apple has made no mention so far regarding when it will roll out its new iOS 7 update to fix the random reboot issue, but it shouldn't be long now. We'll make sure to let you know as soon as the update becomes available.
