• iOS 9.3 Apple's 'most stable new release in years,' app analytics firm finds

    In spite of some publicized glitches, including an activation bug that affected older devices, iOS 9.3 is Apple's "most stable new release in years," an app analytics firm said on Wednesday.


    iOS 9.3 has had a crash rate of just 2.2 percent within the last 8 days, making it the most stable iOS release, Apteligent stated. Comparing to Android's OS saw its crashes hover around 2.6 percent.

    Many other major iOS releases have been much more problematic this month by comparison, iOS 8, iOS 9, and iOS 9.2. All three are more crash prone, and last week saw their crash rates briefly shoot over 3.2 percent. iOS 9.3 witnessed a spike around the same time, but remained well below other versions, even the comparatively stable iOS 9.1.

    The hyprelink bug actually affects iOS versions as far back as 9.0.2, and turns out to be connected to Booking.com and its affiliated apps, rather than the iOS 9.3 update. Even though Apple promised to "correct the problem in a future software update."

    The initial distributions of iOS 9.3 caused users of some older devices to be stuck on the Activation Lock screen. Apple ultimately seeded new builds, but some people may have had to restore their devices via iTunes.

      Whilst not saying this is untrue, I do wonder how they come to this conclusion.

      I wonder what happened on March 23 to make crash rates spike.

      It's riding the news train and guessing. And than the [emoji90] hits the fan. Look at the "new" 5SE. Everyone with half a brain knew it's a sorry attempt to upgrade the old 5S. Big deal first and now a disappointment.
