Apple iOS 9.3.1 Update to fix a blasted Safari bugs

A couple of days ago, technology giant Apple released the 2nd version of bug fixer update iOS 9.3 to make Apple users get rid of an unexpected glitch which was preventing older iPhones and iPads users from activating their devices. Almost 10 days ago, Apple released iOS 9.3 with some major improvements—the Night Shift mode and Touch ID support for the Notes app; but the software update resulted in activation problems for a large number of older iOS devices. Thus, a bug caused web browsing on Safari that many users find unusable. Finally, the technology giant came out with another updated iOS 9.3 version which was meant for the users that were affected by the “activation bug” which was clearly responsible for preventing older iPhones and iPads from getting upgraded to iOS 9.3.


With an updated build number called 13E5237, the new version addresses the bugging issue on the iPhone 5S and previous iPhones and the iPad Air and prior iPads. the iPad2. Before releasing the newest version of iOS 9.3, the company published a support page and authenticated the activation bug in a statement:

“Updating some iOS devices (iPhone 5s and earlier and iPad Air and earlier) to iOS 9.3 can require entering the Apple ID and password used to set up the device in order to complete the software update. In some cases, if customers do not recall their password, their device will remain in an inactivated state until they can recover or reset their password. For these older devices, we have temporarily pulled back the update and will release an updated version of iOS 9.3 in the next few days that does not require this step.”

Previous update known for bugs caused serious problems to iOS devices. Locking up of Safari browser was a big problem detected when hyperlinks were tapped and long pressed. When users with affected devices interacted with hyperlinks, it resulted in the activation of bugs. These hyperlinks were interacted in the Notes app, the Mail app, the Messages app, and social media apps. As the same problem affected maximum Apple users, the Apple Support Twitter account got flooded with many complaints. The same thing happened with the Apple Support Communities forums and other channels that are directly or indirected related to Apple. Contact Apple technical Services to customer support number

The problem was associated with the universal links introduced by Apple with iOS 9. “We are aware of this issue, and we will release a fix in a software update soon,” added an Apple spokeswoman.
