I've had some recent issues and I am not sure if they are a result of the new OS's. I had an issue with my Macbook Pro on 10.10 but that's another matter that has been resolved.

My iPhone 6 has twice now just shut itself off while chillin' on the coffee table. Once last night and once today. I do something on the phone set it down and the screen times out and turns off. I pick it back up later only to find that it has shut down.

The only thing I recently did was have the phone unlocked by AT&T which I doubt is the cause..

Is anyone else seeing this? If so, how did you solve it?

This happened to me a few times. I figured it was because I had too many Apps open and it soaked up the ram and my iPhone shut off. Remedy, I closed the Apps and I'm more aware of how many I have open soaking up what portion of the ram. Now I don't have that issue any more.

Really, your phone is "chillin'" ?
Yes because my phone is cool like that!

Thanks, I will keep an eye on that!

Just a reminder - don't advertise your company here. Thanks.
I've already looked into that and have Contacted an Administrator for a placement in the Review Section.. Im honestly thinking about getting the 6 but I might just wait for the second gen like everything else thats made in this world. thank you for the heads up tho, much appreciated.

It's cool that you did the right thing. I came close to banning you. :D

No harm, no foul.

thank you for not banning me.. i would like to continue to use this site.

Im not here to spam.
I wasn't taunting you. When a user initially fits a profile, the ban rate is extremely high. I'm glad I held off. Welcome to eiC. :)

BTW, I'm sporting an Apple black leather case and love it. I like a form-fitting case on my Plus. It feels great to hold.

I don't like the jailbreak Idea.. i've learned it just cause more problems. I really need to get a new iPhone because my 4s has the worst web cracked screen. its tempting to get the plus but I know in 6 months a new version will be out. the cases that I produce are form fitting. im trying to find people who have thier own Design Brands that they can exclusively offer.

My problem was narrowed down to Tweetbot crashing.. I must have had a bad download or something. It was using a ton of resources then crashing and shutting the phone down I guess.

I did a factory reset and restored from an iTunes backup and all is good.

My point is that just because you read about problems here does not necessarily mean it's a phone issue. In my case it was an app..
