  • Apple acknowledges iOS 9 crashing link bug. Fix coming soon with new update.
    Today, Apple has posted online that they are aware of the new hyperlink bug which isn't only affecting iOS 9.3 but multiple iOS versions. Apple has stated that they are aware and a new update will be available soon (presumably iOS 9.3.1)



    “We are aware of this issue, and we will release a fix in a software update soon.”
    Many users have reported links from 'Bookings.com' as the cause of the bug however other apps have reported to be freezing. Reason behind this is because the system being used by these apps which were introduced in iOS 9 were released in megabytes which is oversized causing trouble for users of iOS.

    'Bookings.com' has corrected the megabytes into kilobytes and the fix has been made.

    Apple didn't say when it expects to release the software update, other than ‘soon’. As it is an issue affecting so many people (and disrupting a rather major activity people do on iPhones and iPads, tap links) however, it would not be a surprise to expect a bug fix within a few days.

      Very true, I spent 10 hours on the phone yesterday restoring iPhones, iPads with friends to 9.2.1 because of problems with 9.3 [emoji37]

      Rule of thumb in software:

      Wait at least a week or two before installing a new release, to allow time for bugs to surface.

      I can't for the life of me understand why many "experts" advise updating asap. What's the rush?

      Depends on the reason for the update. For example, there might be a critical security flaw.

      Yes, and there might be a new critical security flaw or some other serious flaw in the latest update. Such things happen all the time. I've done it myself. Apple has shown they are just as vulnerable as everybody else.

      We're all human. I know it's a cliché, but it's true—too true. As a coder, I wanted to be done and to move on. As a user, I wanted to be up-to-date with the latest fixes. All my coworkers and techie friends felt the same way. In fact, we still do. The newest, bestest thing is always so appealing to people like us. I've learned it's important to resist, but I still struggle with it.

      Back to the subject you raised about a critical security flaw. According to security experts, most people would be better served by focusing more on security in their day-to-day lives. Most identity thefts occur because people aren't careful enough. We all worry about techie hacks into obscure software vulnerabilities, but that's too much trouble for most hackers, and it requires a lot of skill. Unless you're a high-profile individual, don't sweat it. If you are a high-profile individual, hire yourself an expert.
