First beta version of iOS 9.3.2 said to repair Game Center's "White Screen of Death"

First beta version of iOS 9.3.2 said to repair Game Center's
The Game Center's "White Screen of Death" has been around iDevices since iOS 8. And now, it finally appears that Apple has a fix for this issue with the first beta to iOS 9.3.2. When the bug manifests itself, the Game Center application will launch with a white screen, or a game that is open will crash, leaving a white screen. Another symptom of this bug is the freezing of the settings app while going through Game Center.

Game Center is used by iPhone and iPad users to play multi-player games against other iOS users, and to check leaderboards. The first beta for iOS 9.3.2 was released last Wednesday to developers and was issued to those in the public beta testers program the very next day.

While many of these public beta testers now say that the bugs creating the White Screen of Death have been fixed by the new iOS build, mum's the word from Apple which has yet to officially confirm it. Another fix handled by the first beta version of iOS 9.3.2 allows the contextual Quick Actions memo to launch smoothly and quickly while in landscape mode. Previously, iOS users experienced a lag when attempting to open the menu in the landscape position.

You sure its not WiFi Assist causing this issue? Make sure it off. Of you could see a huge phone bill.

Gamecenter is an app I never bothered to use much like hangouts or another useless stock app.

Wow! You actually find something on iOS useless?

14. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Yep, because you didn't have this issue it must not exist, per every Apple fanboy logic. You guys seem to think that sharing the same phone, installing the same updates, that you all should equally have this problem. Why? And you can't seem to understand that because you don't have a problem, that no one else could possibly be having it too; so surely they must be lying. Maybe this photo is photoshopped. I mean because I can surely do this on any phone

But it's ok for Android fans to say "I've never had that issue, so it's not a big deal." I don't you have much room to talk about fanboy logic since Android fans do the same exact thing. You can't say one thing for one OS and switch around and say something else for the other OS. That's contradictory.

Many of them do say it. Many issues on Android people complain about I dont experience, but I dont downplay the issue simply because I may not be experiencing it. That si what people like YOU do. Example - Me and the wife both have a Note 5. One thing I constantly have an issue with is typing. On every Samsung, iPhone, HTC I have every owned with on-screen keyboards, they all lag out. On my Note 5, even using 3rd party keyboards, the keyboard will lag, or just completely freeze. Even if I factory reset my phone, and dont install any software and I type a text message, I type so fast the keyboard just stops and then I cant type anymore until it catches up because pressing the letters wont do anything. Yet my wife also types fairly fast and this doesnt happen to her. So she laughs and just say stop hammering on the keyboard and type slower. It usually happens when I am blogging, but in pretty much any app where I have to type. ITS ANNOYING But other may not be having this issue that appears to be caused by how I type. This is why I have so many typos. Because when typing the keyboard will stall, then when the letters appear they are backwards or not even the words I typed. But I dont downplay another user who says, they are having a problem. I try to help them think what they first may have done to cause it. If that doesn't work then all you can do is hope the OEM fixes it. But i dont go like you guys and talk about, well it isnt a problem because only 0.00001% of the users even reported the issue, so that must mean it isnt a widespread problem. That is what you do and I have seen YOU specifically do on countless occasions. Actually, NO! Its not ok for any fan to say ""I've never had that issue, so it's not a big deal." But see, only fans do this. Everyone else liek me will say, what did you do that cause this issue to appear, see if we can replicate the error, or just say, hopefully the OEM fixes it as after all you are at their mercy. Most problems with a device is caused by user error. In cases where I cause an issue, removing an app I just installed, reinstalling the app, or maybe resetting the phone; fixes the issue. The only phone I ever owned that had an issue, that a firmware could not fix was the antenna issue of the iPhone 4 and at the time I was using an ATT model where this was a huge issue and so I switch back my line to VZW which didnt experience the issue even with the same identical phone. My issues typically on a device deal with 2 things, responsiveness and if I am experimenting; which I do. But I never downplay an issue someone else has, I never bring up how many reported it, I've never blamed the user for the issue, and I don't disqualify it as being an issue just because I am not experiencing. All this has been done by fanboys exactly like YOU!!!

So they've released iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, 9.3, 9.3.1 and now 9.3.2 beta The one thing these all have in common is they all are bug fixes...Basically your next apple iOS version is assured to come with more Bugs than Features.

Better than waiting for another version of Android to fix existing issues and that's assuming you even make it to the next version. A lot of phones won't see anything past Lollipop and that's unfortunate because Lollipop broke a lot of phones. My Note 4 is basically unuasble now after the being nearly flawless on KitKat.

Even though I don't believe you, if you wanted to go back to KiKat it easy. All you have to do is download that firmware and Odin and install KitKat. The reason you seem to "think" its unusable, is because you dont know how to f'king using it. Its just that simple. Even though I dont have my old Note 3, I felt Android 5 was terrible on my Note 4, which is why as soon as the S6 Edge came out I sold my Note 4 for it while the wife said she wanted to keep her Note 4. She kept it until I got us both the Note 5. I liked the Note 4, but the lag and unresponsiveness of doing tasks for whatever reason was simply to much for me to deal with. It is by far the most laggy Samsung device I ever owned and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. But before I did, I did find some issues that caused it, and some of it was my fault, though not on purpose. Like for example, I save every text message in the messaging app. I had over 7000 messages. So I saved them to a file, and cleared them out the app. Then I removed all my videos and photos to the tune of 121GB of data, which was all stored on the sdcard and I also had some apps on it too. Once I did that and moved all the apps back to the internal storage, the lag didnt totally disappear, but it was far better. But at this point I already had enough. The Note 5 has been better, but again, once i got to over 5000 messages, it again gets laggy until I removed most of them and again it better. I also dont store tones of video and music. I tried adding just 35GB of music and again responsiveness went down. Hopefully the Note 6 will be better because I surely have complained to Samsung and in my note to them I told them if the Note 6 doesn't address this issues, I wont be buying it. I dont care what anyone else does. I will just keep my Note 5 and my S6 Edge+ Right now they work great, but not begin able to carry my media on one device, having to use another device to store my media and use it in the car sucks for me. I want to own 2 devices out of choice, not because one or the other forces me to won another. That si why I left Apple. Maybe I will just go get a Windows Phone or Blackberry.

Techie you just did exactly what you said you don't do in post #18.

Yet another update, to fix a problem that was cause by another update. This now makes #10 of updates to iOS9. This is ridiculous. How the heck did any one of the last updates cause this issue? If they actually tested whatever updated caused this issue in-house, how did it not cause this issue in-house?

17. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You know meanest tried to say the same thing and it was wrong then and it's still wrong now. Until you point fingers at Google for letting issues escape testing, you have no right to point fingers at Apple and blast them for stuff not coming up. At least Apple is quick to fix issues over waiting for months for an issue on Android to be fixed. You have to be a Nexus to be able to get any quick update and/or bug fix.

The problem with you is simple. You assume that if a device runnign Android has an issue, that issue must be related to Android. What we have seem is especially with Samsung, is the phone issues are because of speific issues with features on their phones and have nothign to do with Android. How often does Google release a new Android firmware? NOT OFTEN. Roughly once a year just like Apple. But example, Lollipop has a RAM Management issue that IS SPECIFIC TO ANDROID 5.0. It was addressed with 5.01 and 5.1. 5.i is a full firmware fix vs 5.01 which is an incremental fix. iOS9 has 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3 which are all full firmware fixes vs the ones in between. But yet none of the Android versions have had all these issues. the Memory leak issue doesn't make my device stop working. It just means it will have poor performance issues linked to RAM specifically. The latest iOS updates for many have rendered the device totally unusable.I dont recall any Android device that just stopped working after an update. Yet you claim we blow them out of proportion. Dont you think it is a big deal that many people updated their phones and Apple seems to have purposely targeted people who had their phones repaired by 3rd parties that many fo them bricked and stop working? No other iOS update has ever did this, why did Apple target these users? Out of spite? Because they didnt want to pay Apple obsessive repulsive overpriced repair costs? Also 10 updates in 7 months? Do the math. That means each update had roughly less than 3 weeks to be tested. A problem like this likely wont show up in-house in such a short time. How can you thoroughly test an update in 3 weeks? What, setup 5 device of each model that will get this update and then after installing the update, what happens next? How do they then test? Do they open all the stock apps? Explain how the iPhone with ist antenna issue wasnt seen. OH WAIT. It was seen, Steve Jobs just didnt give a sh!t. As he stated with his own mouth, yes out engineers did see a problem, but we didnt think it was a big deal. Really? How could they not have seen how easy it was for the iPhone 6 Plus to bend? In fact how is it, that when making a phone this thin, why you would use plating to prevent such as this should be done during design phases. You can give Apple whatever excuse you want. Yes Samsung has had the S4 bend, but ti took way more effort than the 6 Plus did. See its funny, a 3rd party noted how to fix it and Apple used it in the 6S Plus, but I bet they didnt pat that guy one single dime. testing ownt find every bug or every problem. We know this already. But this is 10 SERIOUS problems which shows that either Apple's testing is severely hampered or they simply dont give a sh!t. I personally will go with Apple doesnt give a sh!t. Because Apple's quality was far better for the iPad and the iphoen when Jobs was here. That frikkin first iPad is so solid it feels near indestructible...
