Apps Crash Twice As Often on iPhone 5S Compared to iPhone 5

If it seems like your apps are crashing more frequently since you upgraded to the new iPhone 5S, you’re not alone.

Mobile applications crash twice as often on the iPhone 5S than they do on both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C, according to tests by Crittercism, a mobile application performance management company.

But even with the doubled rate, crash frequency is still relatively low across all versions of the iPhone 5. The 5S has a crash rate of about 2%, compared to the original 5 and 5C’s rates of just around 1%, Kalyan Ramanathan, Crittercism’s chief marketing officer, told Mashable.

In some cases, crashes are just annoying, such as when your app fails while you’re reading headlines on a news site. But for some apps, a crash can actually harm business. For example, a customer trying to purchase something through an app may give up and not buy the product if it crashes, Ramanathan explained.
