Is it Apple’s 64-Bit A7 processor or iOS7 the real cause behind the higher app crash rates? Find out!
The entire buzz related to the release of iOS 7 has substantially given a thrust to the question whether is it the newly launched system itself that is causing the pre-existing apps to crash? While millions of people excitedly welcomed the much awaited iOS 7 to their devices, a large number of feedbacks started coming in from users experiencing trouble in operating their devices precisely after installing the new system.
According to the users it is not just the third-party apps that are failing to perform but the standard Apple apps are having performance issues as well after installing iOS 7. On the contrary, a research states that apps installed on the iPhone 5S have a two percent crash rate, while iPhone 5C and iPhone 5 apps are less than one percent. The Openxcell Technolabs- one of the leading iPhone App Development Company which tests web and mobile apps for reputed companies has reportedly agreed on the ongoing issue by divulging that 90 per cent of existing apps are having performance issues with the newly launched OS.
“Certainly it takes three or four shots for the developers to fix the things that iOS7 is currently facing. This suggests that apps are having recital issues in double as many areas as they normally do.” Says Jayneel Patel, the Managing Director of Openxcell Technolabs. Elaborating the situation, the iPhone App Developers of Openxcell said,” To our surprise, after the transition from iOS 7 to iOS 4, 5 and 6 we couldn’t find any sort of spike in performance issues as well as UI rendering issues.”
Yet, the question still lingers whether is it really iOS 7 the main cause for the apps to suffer or is it just a matter of concern with iPhone 5S? Speculating the latter validates the reason behind it to be its 64-bit A7 processor which isn’t featured in the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5C, and consequently unavailable for testing by developers before launch. Though, iPhone hasn’t settled on the point that apps designed for the 32-bit phones will face issues on the 64-bit iPhone 5S. Nevertheless, if the A7 processor isn’t showing any flaws then the iOS 7 is to be blamed for the unwanted occurrences in iPhone Apps experienced by its users.
Focusing on the greener side, there were several developers who were already prepared to welcome iOS 7 by working on the beta release and steadily adjusting their apps for the new operating system. Over and above that, one cannot deny the truth that these issues are already being fixed with the release of iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2 followed by 7.0.3 update that aimed at truly squashing some of the major issues that device owners have been experiencing lately. And to no surprise, the next apple’s iOS release is still a secret with ardent users probing for iOS 7.0.4 or iOS 7.1 that are expected to deliver fixes with new features.
