Apps Are More Likely To Crash On Apple's iPhone 5s Than The iPhone 5c
Bugs continue to be found in Apple’s iOS 7, regardless of the device. Apps, however, are more likely to crash on the iPhone 5s, as opposed to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. This suggests that some apps aren’t playing nice with the device’s new processor, according to AllThingsD. A new study from Crittercism shows that programs crash about 2 percent of the time on the iPhone 5s, as compared to just under 1 percent on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. Andrew Levy, Crittercism CEO notes:
Anytime there is new hardware or software release, we see issues. Inevitably, over time, those issues get resolved.Developers have been able to test apps on iOS 7 since Apple released the first beta in June. However, testing those apps on Apple’s new flagship product wasn’t possible until the device was released to the public on Sept. 20. The iPhone 5s includes a 64-bit A7 processor and M7 coprocessor. By contrast, the internals on the iPhone 5c, which was released at the same time as the iPhone 5s, are nearly identical to the recently discontinued iPhone 5. Levy believes that Apple will resolve these issues sooner, rather than later. “The good news is that Apple is certainly aware of issues,” he said. “They’ve pushed out two iOS updates for iOS 7 … Apple is doing a really good job of addressing these issues as they come up.” A third iOS update, version 7.0.3, was expected to arrive this week. That hasn't happened at the time of this writing.
