App analytic firm rates iOS 9.3 as "most stable new release in years" for Apple

For a company which prides itself on making both the hardware and operating system work together in harmony, the recent spate of issues arising from the iOS 9.3 update has placed Apple in a bad light. However, an app analytics firm claims otherwise. 

According to app analytics firm Apteligent, iOS 9.3 is the most stable iOS release in circulation based on data collected over the past 8 days. Despite bricking some older models and causing Safari to be unresponsive, Apteligent calculated the crash rate of iOS 9.3 to be just 2.2%.

In comparison, iOS 8, 9 and 9.2 had crash rates over 3.2% in the same period. What's even more surprising is the fact that iOS 9.3 is more stable than Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is said to have a crash rate of 2.6%.

As Apple's product lineup gets more complicated, software bugs and issues are bound to increase. Apple should pull up its socks and enforce stricter quality checks on its software updates before releasing it to the masses. In case you're wondering whether this is a prank for April's Fools, it is not.
