Unpredictable crashes in settings.

iOS and iPadOS

Hi all,
Just a very short post to ask a question. I've experienced random and generally unpredictable crashes whilst in the settings app. These can occur in seemingly any section of settings and, as far as I can determine, they are completely arbitrary. I'd say this has happened about 10 times since upgrading to ios8.3. This may be related to the previous bug in the sound settings that was fixed in 8.3, and quite probably could be some hangover from the resolution of that behavior. Just curious if anyone has observed this recently.
Best wishes.

Yep, i'll be swiping along and all of a sudden, Settings closes and I'm back out to the home screen. Is that what you're seeing?

Also, and this may be related, when I initiate an iCloud backup, I am dumped out of settings after a long pause, perhaps when the backup is complete?

So, where do I report this? I have the accessibility address at Apple, but not one for other bugs.

I notice it crashes when an icloud backup is done. I just ignore it as it has not failed me yet, the restore I mean.

Chris, I intend sending a brief note to accessibility@apple.com alerting them to the behavior over the weekend. We're all experiencing precisely the same thing. Luckily, It's nothing major and can be, for the most part, ignored, not a showstopper, but thank you both for the confirmation.

I don't know if it is voice over related as it has done with with voice over off, but so far no loss of data.

That's interesting. Will ask my sister if she's had any unusual settings crashes lately just to check before I email accessibility.
