Apple's iPhone 5S running 64-bit iOS 7 has twice crash rate of applications than other iPhone models. 32-bit iPhone 5C and previous iPhone 5 have 1% apps crash rate while iPhone 5S has 2%.
Apple's latest iPhone 5S have few issues that needs to be resolved. And Apple is well aware of this. It's normal to see few bugs in a new release. Whenever something new hardware or software is introduced, it always has some bugs. The new iPhone 5S is the most advanced iPhone model of Apple yet. Featuring faster A7 processor and all new 64-bit iOS 7 OS, iPhone 5S also have some bugs to be fixed. And Apple is working on it.
But a new study conducted by Crittercism, reveals that that apps crash rate is higher on iPhone 5S than iPhone 5C and iPhone 5. The apps crash test shows that applications running on 64-bit iPhone 5S get crashed at a rate of about 2 percent. On the other hand, previous iPhone 5 and current low-end 32-bit iPhone 5C have a crash rate 1%. It means the crash rate for apps is twice on iPhone 5S than iPhone 5C and iPhone 5.
Crittercism CEO Andrew Levy told AllThingsD, "Anytime there is new hardware or software release, we see issues. Inevitably, over time, those issues get resolved.” But he also said, “The good news is that Apple is certainly aware of issues,” Levy said. “They’ve pushed out two iOS updates for iOS 7 … Apple is doing a really good job of addressing these issues as they come up.”
