Multiple iPhone and iPad users who installed iOS 9.3 have reported bugs that are locking their devices and causing apps to crash.
According to a report in The Guardian, those with an iPhone 5S and earlier, or an iPad Air and earlier, who updated to iOS 9.3 were required to submit their Apple ID password after installation which “locked their devices in an unusable state if they couldn’t remember it”.
Apple then released a second version of iOS 9.3 for older devices, according to the report.
Another bug then surfaced for iOS 9.3 users, caused by Apple’s Universal Links feature.
The bug reportedly causes apps like Mail, Messages, and Safari to crash when a link is tapped.
Apple said it is aware of the problem and is working on a fix.
