It’s been about a week since we all got iOS 7.1 and along with the lack of white screens of death it seems the OS also has some newly found stability for apps too.
According to performance monitoring firm Crittercism, the crash rate of apps running on iOS 7.1 has dipped to just 1.6-percent. It’s a small but noticeable improvement from the 2.1-percent rate of crashing apps on iOS 7.
The research also shined a light how iOS 6.1 and iOS 6 were actually more prone to app crashes despite not having iOS 7’s known white or black screens of death.
Along with the improved performance numbers, the new data Chitika, an online advertising network, shows that Apple users are rapidly adopting iOS 7.1. The network puts the number of hotly updated iOS devices accessing its ad network at 12-percent just 48 hours after Apple released the new operating system.
Crittercism corroborated the numbers stating the number of iOS 7.1 adopters is being boosted by late iOS 6 holdouts who skipped the early jump to iOS 7.
Originally iOS 7 hit the floor running to a rough start thanks to bumpy issues like the buggy lock screens and fingerprint scanner hacks. But from the early looks of it, iOS 7.1 has fixed many of those wrongs.
Additionally the point one update has brought on some new tweaks including better Siri and TouchID intergration, which does not forget fingerprints. iOS 7.1 on the iPhone 5S also automatically enables HDR photography from the get go and the built-in Calendar now has the ability to show events by month.
- iOS 8 is still a ways away but we’ve already got a wish list lined up for it
