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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
