Apple pushing out iOS 9.3.1 today to eliminate issue that crashes, hangs and freezes apps
Just the other day, we told you about a nasty bug connected to the iOS 9.3 update which causes links in apps like Safari, Mail, Notes and Messages to stop working. Instead of being taken to the linked site, the app will freeze, crash or hang. For the most part, this issue is limited to those using the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus, although some with older iPhone models and some iPad users are also complaining about it.
Today, Apple has started to disseminate iOS 9.3.1 (which weighs in at 35.3MB) to everyone who received the earlier iOS 9.3 update. Even the new Apple iPhone SE and 9.7-inch Apple iPad Pro are receiving the update since they both are hitting the market with iOS 9.3 pre-installed. The new iOS build contains a fix that will eliminate the problem with the app links
If you've been having a problem with your iDevice since the release of iOS 9.3, the good news is that the Calvary is here. Keep an eye peeled for iOS 9.3.1, which you could receive as soon as today.
