Apple issued the update, iOS 9.3, last week and the problems have been reported since then. It had to pull the update for older iPhones and iPads after users found that it was locking them out of their devices. The problem affects Safari, Mail, Messages and more.
Although we’re still waiting for Apple’s software update, which is likely to arrive as iOS 9.3.1, there doesn’t appear to be a workaround yet either. An Apple spokesperson said: “We are aware of this issue, and we will release a fix in a software update soon”. A Twitter user pinpointed that the bookings.com website association file was oversized, thus reportedly triggering this bug originally.
A noticeable feature of iOS 9.3 is that you will be able to make use of the Touch ID fingerprint reader to lock access to your Notes app including using it as the lock screen by keying in a numerical code.
“This would essentially overload the daemon that had to parse these files, causing the crashing”.
There is no official details for the reveal of the iOS 9.3 jailbreak version, but rumors have indicated of an April release date and that it may be possible that TaiG and Pangu is already working on it. Instead of getting positive feedback from users, the latest update was plagued with complaints about crashes and bugs.
According to a new report by app analytics firm Apteligent, Apple’s latest iOS 9.3 build is the most stable new release by the Cupertino-based company in years.
Google is producing a similar setting mode for Android devices. The problem comes back again when iOS 9.3 is downloaded because when each time an update is installed the device reprocesses all of the domains that are supposed to be sent to apps rather than to the web.
