According to mobile application performance management company Crittercism, Apple's latest iOS 8 release is seeing crash rates which are 78% higher than iOS 7.
The average crash rate across all devices is 3.56%, but on breaking down the numbers further Crittercism discovered that older devices are crashing much more than the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices, with the average for the iPhone 4, 4s, 5 and 5s being 3.57 percent, compared to 2.63% for the iPhone 6 and 2.11% for the iPhone 6 Plus.
The average iOS 7 crash rate as seen by Crittercism is 2.0%.
Crashes will be a result from both unresolved stability problems in iOS 8 and buggy 3rd-party apps higher crash rates are common in the early stage of a new OS version.
Additionally, some of older handsets are running old apps that either haven't been updated, either because the user hasn't applied the update or because the app has been abandoned by the developer and won't see any further updates.
