App crashes are a common and expected occurrence for Apple iPhone users once they upgrade to iOS 7. Those app crashes happen more often on an iPhone 5S, according to Crittercism, an analytics company that provides crash reports and monitoring tools for app developers.

Crittercism claims that the Apple iPhone 5S has a crash rate that is twice as high as the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5. One would expect problems to be inevitable when using new software on a new device, but why are crashes so much more common on one device than they are on the other two most recent phones to run iOS 7? One possible explanation could be the 64-bit A7 and M7 processors found in the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C have an A6 processor.

I noted in my iPhone 5S review that it is more prone to app crashes than any iOS device that I have ever used in the past. Crittercism's internal data seems to say it's definitely more challenged than the recent crop of iPhones. However, the company notes to AllThingsD that Apple has already released two app updates for iOS 7 and will likely fix these problems soon. CEO Andrew Levy said, "Apple is doing a really good job of addressing these issues as they come up."
