For iOS 9.3 cannot activate error Apple has revised it with another release of the IPSW firmware link, but not actually it worked its best, and today we come in front of another issue. A new iOS 9.3 bug has appeared into the wild affecting many users running the said firmware on latest devices such as iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Thinking that Apple hasn’t aknowledged this problem as yet, where Apple Support forums are filled with many users complaining about this damn issue where web links in Safari, mail, Messages and some other apps either simply refuces to open, cause a freeze, or crashes the device completely. Long-pressing the links in Apple’s mobile browser also seem to trigger a crash. Now what? How to fix that?

Next strange thing about this bug would be that not everyone appears to be having thisproblem. When tried to replicate the problem over a range of new and old iPhone and iPad models running iOS 9.3 but it couldn’t reproduce it at the end.
