iOS 9.3 Stability: Excellent Despite Bugs
While there have been severe bugs in the iOS 9.3 release that affected numerous users, it is also one of the most stable releases out there. In fact, iOS 9.3 is one of the most stable releases of the past few years and produces lower crash rates than iOS 8 or iOS 9.
App analytics company apteligent (via AppleInsider) looked into the numbers and found that Apple has effectively decreased the crash rate to 2.2 percent, which makes iOS 9.3 the most stable version of the operating system that we have seen in the years since iOS 8 and later. March has been a turbulent month due to the Booking.com app bug and other issues that popped up during the end of the month. Overall, iOS 9.3 did great. Google Android’s latest iteration – which is only installed on a small proportion of devices – has a crash rate of 2.6 percent, by the way.
Despite the great results, we urge users to update to iOS 9.3.1 to fix the severe Safari bug which can occur in certain instances and cause crashes and freezes when tapping links. We had posted a workaround in our tutorial section, but there is now the option of simply updating to the latest version of the operating system and fix the bug directly, hopefully once and for all.
