Steve Speaks: Apple Will Fix App Crashes in September
Gotta love Steve Jobs and his blunt-force emails. This time, it's a lucky AppleInsider reader who sent it on a complaint about crash-prone applications, a problem which has plagued the iPhone 2.0 pretty much since launch. And what did the drive-by-Steve'ing say?
This is a known iPhone bug that is being fixed in the next software update in September
Will that be the still-in-beta 2.1? Another hotfix like 2.0.2? Jobs, of course, didn't elaborate. Smart money, however, would be on a 2.0.3 rev. so that Apple doesn't have rush 2.1 out prematurely, with just more of the same issues.
I know my Apps experience the dreaded Home Screening of Death (HSOD) semi-regularly, especially the new/updated ones. What about you? Smooth sailing or lots of crashes? If the latter, how far away must September seem? (And is it just us, or is the unresolved bug list for 2.x pretty dang scary compared to the relatively stable 1.x?)
