Apple Rolls Out the iOS 9.3.1 Update To Fix Safari Crash

iOS releases update to fix bugs

Apple, on Thursday, released the iOS 9.3.1 for all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices. The Cupertino-based company claims that this software update will fix the bug in iOS 9.3, that led to frequent crashing of the device each time a hyperlink in Safari was clicked.

If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, you could wait for the update to reach the device OTA (over-the-air) or if you’re impatient for the bug to get fixed, you could go the manual way by simply visiting the Settings option on your device. Go on to General and then tap on the Software Update option to download and install the iOS 9.3.1 firmware.

The iPhone and iPad owners have been complaining for the past few weeks about their devices freezing after clicking on links via Apple’s Safari and Mail apps. The company also received feedback from some users complaining that the links in certain apps don’t work at all. Apple has, apparently, acknowledged the problem and rolled out iOS 9.3.1to actually fix this issue.

The official changelog for the iOS 9.3.1 says, “Fixes an issue that caused apps to be unresponsive after tapping on links in Safari and other apps.” So, we believe the update 9.3.1 update solely addresses the crashing issue when tapping on links, but you might want to keep an eye out to see if Apple has added any other fixes or improvements.

To recall, along with launching the iPhone SE and iPad Pro, the company also rolled out the iOS 9.3 update last month that brought in new features, one of which was Night Shift.
