iOS 9.3 is Apple’s ‘most stable new release in years’

“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,” Roger Fingas reports for AppleInsider.

“During the past eight days 9.3 has had a crash rate of just 2.2 percent, easily making it the most stable iOS release in circulation, Apteligent claimed,” Fingas reports. “A Web link 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. Nevertheless, Apple promised to correct the problem in a future software update.”

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

    1. No issues here with the release. I dunno what to say to the haters but it’s still better than Android alternatives. I think there would be people that had an issue if Apple gave out a 1oz. piece of gold with each device – why only 1 oz.? Really – in more important updates it took Apple to stand up for privacy and no big surprise there was an alternative – not the dog wagging it’s tail but the system wagging the dog – why aren’t people upset with this? Tax dollars paid for the unessessary fight… But maybe those them there cafeteria trays are a new and improved model…
