Some users of iOS 9.3 have been reporting that when clicking on links in apps such as Safari, apps and sometimes their device would freeze up and even require a reboot in order to get it working again. Apple recently stated that they were working on a fix for this bug, and today they released it to the world in the form of iOS 9.3.1.
The only thing found different in this update is the fix for Safari links, which is to be expected as this is a dot-dot update. For reference, normal software updates are labeled as major.minor.bug fixes. We will, however, update this post if anything new is discovered by anyone.
iOS 9.3 really hasn’t been that flawless, as there’s this occurring issue plus a recent activation problem users were reporting that even bricked some older devices including the iPad 2. Since then, Apple has had to re-release iOS 9.3 for those devices and temporarily pause the roll out of the update until a fix was made. And with all of these problems being discovered and the fear of even more surfacing soon, it makes me wonder if Apple should’ve had one final beta of iOS 9.3 a couple of days before the software update went mainstream.
