iOS 7.1 has the lowest crash rate in the OS's recent history

According to performance monitoring by Crittercism, a mobile solutions firm, the freshly-released iOS 7.1 has a crash rate of only 1.6%. This is the best stability achievement in iOS's recent history, with versions from 6 to 7 having crashes of above 2%. For example, iOS 7.0.4 had an app crash rate of 2.1%, which means that either testing went over really well, or Apple has done an impressive work of optimizing the latest installment of iOS.


Reportedly, a significant number of iOS 6 users who hesitated to upgrade to iOS 7 have now switched to version 7.1. Also notable is how quickly the update was adopted. Ad network and analysis agency Chitika claims that 12% of the devices that accessed its ads were running iOS 7.1 about 45 hours after its release.


That's all fine and dandy, but Apple customers have been complaining of poor battery life, drops in connectivity, and random reboots since installing the update. Other users, meanwhile, have been enjoying their iDevices as usual. Either way, Apple has not yet commented on the situation.

I updated the iPhone 4 that I'm selling and while it did get snappier, Safari, App Store and the Music app crashed on me yesterday.

Yo Smurf, If you can, sell it in Brazil. People over there will pay top dollar for the iPhone. You can easily get $1500 for an iP4. I got $1500 for my Note (1), and $3000 for my iPhone 5. This was last year.

Please tell me step by step. Thing is, I need the cash fast since I'm replacing that with a brand new iPhone 5 for $300.

Fly to Brazil, sell it, come back. Lol. Normally, I would go with 2-3 iPhones, so the profit would be very good, after the flight cost.

Why wouldn't they just buy one on ebay or something for a lot cheaper?

The price would still be high lol.

Good question. Because the tax system in brazil is realllllly f*cking ridiculous. It is so corrupt. People avoid buying high cost luxuries because of this reason. The price in paying someone cash would be a lot cheaper. They are all that cost down their anyway, with taxes.

So my iPad Mini 2 keeps crashing with Safari and Spotify. Safari randomly force closes every half hour and Spotify would randomly freeze and re-open. I already factory reset twice and it's getting annoying.

Take a trip to Brazil? You could sell both your iP4 and the mini, for more $.

It is probably crashing due to a package, since your device keep crashing. Anything that hasn't been updated recently, or something there that isn't supported for x64 and iOS7? It's hard to give a good answer since I'm lacking knowledge of the problem.

But, I can tell you that you'll do better off troubleshooting with these guys. Very great community.

Time to wait for iOS v 7.1.1. Only problem is you can't downgrade to whatever was stable for you, so you are kind of iScrewed.

I'm still on 7.0.6 because of jailbreak.

In Brazil when you buy something from another country(like on ebay) you pay 60% of taxes if the items is coming from normal mail service or 100% if it is coming by carriers like UPS or fedex

I'm not a fan of soccer. Played it when I was younger, but never was really into it.

In brasil everything is really very expensive, but those prices you are saying are either false or the person who bought it is very stupid, If you go to the brazilian apple store you can see that an iphone 5s costs from $1190(16GB) to $1600(64GB) which is very expensive indeed, but pay $3000 for one...I don´t think you are being very honest.

1200 - WITHOUT corrupt taxes.

I am being honest as it gets lol. I've done it before, and so have others I know (the ones who got me into doing it to make easy money).

Believe me or not, its easy money.

No man, $1200 WITH TAXES, maybe the people you sold your phone are really stupid...http://store.apple.com/br/buy-iphone/iphone5s just convert BRL to USD and see.

So....iOS does crash....

Or, it still crashes.

The reality distortion field only works if you buy into it.
Ask the shills here, they've never heard of such a thing.

It also seems to have problems with Bluetooth connectivity. Personally, no B/T for me would be a deal-killer, as I use the snych capability with my car stereo system to have hands-free calling (CA CHP frowns on talking and driving).

who cares?

and what kind of article is that. some firm says iOS7.1 crashed less then others, but it's only been out for a week now and many users haven't upgraded yet so these numbers don't mean squat.

Yea, that is why you release this fluff now. When people search iOS 7 crash rate, this will show up and mask the truth.

With an 27% adoption rate. That's alot. It will go up.

29. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5794; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)


Ummm. I think you mis-understood the article - 24 hours after the update became available there was a 12% adoption rate, not 27%. The other side of the coin of a 12% adoption rate is that the prior 7.0 editions were lacking....

I have never had any crashes much less now after doing a clean installation and setting the device as new. Do it even the battery life gets better.
