Although iOS 9.3 has spent a lot of time in the Beta stage, it looks like a few bugs managed to slip through and now, shortly after Apple solved the activation bug, a new one surfaces. This time, it is something that seems to be more frequent and more serious.

The latest iOS 9.3 bug seems to be targeting both iPad and iPhone users who just got the update. Because of it, users can no longer open links in multiple apps, including iOS-native ones like Safari, Messages, and Mail, but also third-party pieces of code such as Google Chrome. "After update to iOS 9.3 on my iPhone 6 Plus I can no longer click on search links from Google anymore. Tried both in Safari and Chrome," wrote user Agathorn on Apple's support forum.

Since Apple seems to be flooded by users complaining of such issues on Twitter as well, the problem seems serious. How serious, remains to be seen. Let us just hope they will be quick to fix it, especially since some reports claim that iOS 9.2.1 devices are also affected.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
