Apple’s New iPhone 5S Hardware May Be App Crash Culprit

Source: Apple.comHaving trouble with the apps on your new iPhone 5S? You’re not alone.  According to mobile application performance management company Crittercism, apps are crashing on Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) flagship device approximately twice as often as they are on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C, reports All Things D.

Although this sounds like a dire problem, it should be noted that the percentage of crashes on all of the devices running iOS 7 appears to be quite low. According to Crittercism, around 1 percent of the apps launched on the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5 have crashed, compared to about 2 percent of the apps launched on the iPhone 5S.

While it is not uncommon for users to discover pesky bugs in new software releases such as iOS 7, it appears that the recent app issues may be related to the new hardware utilized in the iPhone 5S. This would explain why there are more app crashes on the iPhone 5S even though it is running the same new mobile operating system that is causing some crashes on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C.
