An app analysis firm named Apteligent has done a study of the crash rate seen on iOS 9.3 compared to some earlier builds, and has determined that it is one of the most stable new releases by Apple in years. This comes despite some of the issues that have affected the release, including one that forced Apple to halt the rollout of iOS 9.3 halfway through its completion. There is also a serious bug that has forced apps to freeze and crash on the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus after the installation of iOS 9.3. 

Despite these problems, the study found that over the last eight days, iOS 9.3 had a crash rate of 2.2% making it the most stable of all active iOS builds. It also proved to be more stable than Android 6.0, which crashed at a rate of 2.6%.

According to the report, iOS 9.3 was much less crash prone than iOS 8, iOS 9 and iOS 9.2. All three had crash rates of 3.2% or higher last week. While iOS 9.3's crash rate rose at the same time, it managed to have a lower crash rate than other builds of iOS that have been considered stable, such as iOS 9.1.
