New bug discovered in iOS 9.3

iOS 9.3 update breaks links in Safari, Messages and Mail apps
iOS 9.3 update faces new problems
The bug does not allow iOS 9.3 users to open links in various apps, including Safari and Mail, as well as in more third-party programs.

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.
