Did you file this as a bug with Apple?

I've got an identical pile of crash logs here on my 5s running freshly-released 7.1.2.

comment iCloud Backup: “The last backup could not be completed”
This is also the case for non-beta OS installs. I had the same issue after replacing my phone and am just using the latest non-developer OS version as installed by iTunes. Thank you for figuring it out!

comment What is iTunes Radio's skip limit?
Same here, which is extremely frustrating. I had thought being an iTunes Match subscriber removed the skip limit.

comment How are apps like Mail+ connecting to Exchange, while Apple's Mail.app is blocked by my IT dept?
That's good to know! Is there a specific law(s) I should compare their IT policies with?

comment How are apps like Mail+ connecting to Exchange, while Apple's Mail.app is blocked by my IT dept?
The granting of limitations to my functionality is what I'm worried about, not the privacy of my information. I was also told they'll have access to my current location at any time, which makes me uncomfortable as well.

comment Can't turn on FileVault after restore from Time Machine
Reinstalling the OS right over top of your current OS installation will auto-create a recovery partition (although it will be an internet recovery one).

comment How to hide notification center button in Mountain Lion?
To update this, Bartender has reached v1.x status and is no longer beta. It's $15 and works with all the system icons as advertised. I just now — well, 5 minutes ago — installed it and used it to hide my Notification Center, Bluetooth, and WiFi system icons. (Notification Center hidden completely, and BT/WiFi moved into the "Bartender Bar".)

This doesn't work in Safari 5.2. Unfortunate that they seem to have removed the RSS feature almost entirely.

comment How do I Convert FLAC files to ALAC for iTunes?
You may run into issues with Max crashing if you don't have Growl installed. Last time I had to install this, I had to get the source and compile it myself, but it may be fixed in the "dev" version (or even the "stable") by now. Just a heads up if you're getting any crashes.

comment Why do movies sometime lag on my 15" MacBook Pro (2011)?
I would assume that software is the issue first because it's easier to troubleshoot. If many different software combinations all yield the same results, try it on another similarly spec'd computer and if the results are consistent then it would more likely be hardware. (Or an issue at the system level that will need to be addressed by an OS update.)

comment Does Gmail push on iPhone 4S?
This is what I do. The only problem with doing this is that the iPhone has no concept of Gmail's Archive function when the account is added as Exchange. You will have a trashcan icon that will "delete", but Gmail's servers will treat that as an archive. Manually moving messages from the Inbox folder to the Trash folder on the iPhone interface also doesn't work. The only way to delete a message is to log into the web interface and delete it there. All other actions will simply archive it.

comment Does Gmail push on iPhone 4S?
Incorrect. Exchange accounts also get push, and have for a long long time, and Google enabled adding gmail accounts as Exchange for iPhones.

comment What iOS apps will take pictures and not send them to Photo Stream by default?
HUGE fan of Camera+ here. This is the answer. Plus it's only 99¢. In my experience, Camera+ is also faster to store into its own "Lightbox" than it is to save to the Photo Stream, allowing you to take many pictures in MUCH more rapid succession.

comment Zip Utility with encryption option
What encryption does zip -e use? AES? The man page only says that it encrypts with the password entered.
