Apple has just released iOS 9.3.1 to the public, marking the first update to iOS 9 since iOS 9.3 launched on March 21. iOS 9.3.1 comes just over a week after the launch of iOS 9.3 and likely brings a fix for a significant web link crashing issue that has been affecting many iOS users.
Shortly after iOS 9.3 was released to the masses, many found a bug that saw web links crashing unexpectedly after tapping them. Apple said they would address the issue, and, sure enough, the company has officially released a new, updated version of the mobile operating system that primarily addresses this bug.
Today’s iOS 9.3.1 release is available as an over-the-air update for all iOS 9 users and it can also be downloaded through iTunes. iOS 9.3.1 is the seventh update to iOS 9, following iOS 9.0.1, iOS 9.0.2, iOS 9.1, iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, and iOS 9.3.
The release notes for the new software only reflect this specific change, but if anything else is discovered in the new software, we’ll update this post accordingly.
