Apps on iPhone 5S more crash-prone than other models

12 Oct

The apps on Apple’s latest iPhone5S are more crash-prone as compared to those on the older models of the tech giant’s flagship product.

A mobile app analytics company, Crittercism has revealed that apps running on the iPhone 5S crash twice as often as those available on the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5C, and this data came from analyzing hundreds of millions of apps.

The mixture of new software and hardware improvements is enough to make apps running on the iPhone 5S more crash-prone than those on other iPhone models.

Apps running on the iPhone 5S crash twice as often as those available on the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5C, data from mobile app analytics company Crittercism shows. The information, which was presented to All Things Digital and published on Friday, comes from analyzing “hundreds of millions of apps,” according to the tech site.

According to Cnet, hardware problem could be the reason for the increased crash chances; however, since the iOS 7 developers were fixing flaws in the operating system before the launch, the app crashes on the iPhone5S could be limited now.

The reason for the increased crash instances might actually be a hardware problem. Although app developers were able to fix iOS 7 bugs for months while the software was in testing, thus limiting crashes on the iPhone 5 and nearly identical iPhone 5C, they weren’t made aware of the iPhone 5S’ 64-bit architecture or its M7 coprocessor until the device was unveiled. Those app developers are now trying to catch up.
