Apple’s 40th birthday week came alongside some troubles for iOS 9.3, as our top stories this week surrounded a number of bugs, fixes and responses from Apple related to iOS 9.3 problems and the fix with the release of iOS 9.3.1.

But those issues were balanced out by our excitement over our first impressions with the new iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, as well as the latest leaks for iPhone 7 and other upcoming next-generation iPhones.

iOS 9.3/9.3.1

This week we start things off with Apple’s iOS 9.3 troubles, which caused crashing for many users when clicking certain links in Safari and other apps. Apple ultimately addressed the problem for iPhone and iPad users with the release of iOS 9.3.1.
