Some users are experiencing a problem where tapped links or URLs are not working in Safari or Mail app of i OS.
This is a frustrating issue that has impacted many users without an obvious solution until Apple releases a software update to resolve the problem.
– Do you have any specific experiences troubleshooting i OS 9.3 on your i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch?
Norton Safe Web scans millions of websites to make sure they are safe.
There are a few workarounds however, particularly since the URLs not working tends to occur after some time has passed: Downgrading i OS to the prior release is another option, which we’ll discuss in a moment, as even restoring a device to i OS 9.3 is ineffective at resolving the URL failure.
If you are experiencing persistent problems with i OS 9.3 on a device, you may want to consider downgrading to the prior stable version of i OS 9.2.1.
Here’s the good news; these type of issues are almost certainly temporary, and almost always will fix themselves, as i OS system software runs through various maintenance and indexing under the hood.
This means that many devices will simply have to wait for a newer fixed version if they haven’t updated to i OS 9.3 yet, but obviously that’s not too helpful if you already updated a device to i OS 9.3 and it is now rendered inoperable with an activation error, verification problems, i Cloud issues, Mail and Safari link failures where a link is clicked but does not open, or some of the other annoyances that have popped up with the software update.This is a somewhat technical process that uses firmware files, but we detail the steps to downgrade i OS 9.3 to i OS 9.2.1 here in a thorough walkthrough.Some users have experienced faster than usual battery life after updating to i OS 9.3.Update: Apple has released i OS 9.3.1 update available to download now to address the link crashing bug, and it also contains the activation error fixes.
This is in addition to the patched version of i OS 9.3 that was released previously to address the activation error issue on older i Phone and i Pad device models.
