Apple's iOS 9 keeps making things crash

18 September 2015

sad-apple-logo We told you what Apple have in store for the new iOS 9 update, but it isn't all good. A lot of people have been noting that the update is making their devices crash. Apple have been having a lot of glitches lately, haven't they? 'Just works' indeed.

On social media, some have said that they've been unable to use their phones at all, while others have just lost patience and done a factory reset, losing all their non-backed up data in the process. Ideally, Apple would fix it and issue an update, stat.

People with older iPhones have noticed that their phones are seizing up on a "swipe to upgrade" page, even though Apple deemed this upgrade as 'friendly' to older devices.

Another problem here is that iOS 8 was a glitchfest too, and some of the bugs in that weren't ever properly fixed. Apple are risking annoying a lot of people who have paid a lot of money for a 'premium' product. If they keep this up, their customer base could drop.

So what should you do if you haven't upgraded yet, but are thinking of doing so? Well, it'd be a good idea to wait a few days, and let Apple sort their mess out and iron out the bugs that are in their system at the moment. You're in no rush.
