Although the recently discovered iOS bugs might seem severe to most of those affected, mobile app analytics firm Apteligent thinks iOS 9.3 is "most stable new release in years." Compared to earlier iOS releases, the new iteration of Apple's mobile operating system has a lower crash rate, reveals the same source.

According to the same source mentioned above, Apple iOS 9.3 has a crash rate of 2.2 percent, which is far below the values reported for iOS 8, iOS 9, iOS 9.1, iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.3. Even after last week's spike, all iOS variants maintained the crash rate below 3.3 percent. The spike was probably caused by the introduction of new apps for iOS 9.3, but these pieces of code made all iOS versions crash.

When comparing iOS 9.3 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the numbers should say more than enough - while iOS 9.3 has now a crash rate of 2.2 percent, as mentioned earlier, Android M has a crash rate of 2.6 percent. Although both figures are pretty small, we might say that iOS 9.3 is over 20 percent more reliable than Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

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.
