Apple releases iOS 9.3.1 to fix a bug that’s been driving everyone crazy

iOS 9.3.1 Download

Apple’s new iOS 9.3 update was a pretty big upgrade considering it wasn’t a major release. It packed plenty of bug fixes and at least one major security patch, but it also included some great new features like additional 3D Touch shortcuts and Night Shift. But it also included a horrible bug that has been driving users crazy since iOS 9.3 was first released, and Apple has now pushed out a new update to fix things.

Apple on Thursday released iOS 9.3.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update includes a few fixes but the biggest one is a fix for an issue where all links in Safari would be rendered useless. This new version of iOS remedies the situation, which actually stemmed from improper use of a few APIs but some third-party app developers.

iOS 9.3.1 is available immediately for download as an over the air (OTA) update, or it can be downloaded through iTunes on a Mac or Windows PC.
