According to a report by Crittercism Inc., the latest software update of Apple Inc. for its iPhone and iPad units is causing some popular applications to crash more frequently than usual, among other glitches.

Mr. Levy also revealed that new coding language may be found as one of the issues that causes troubles for programmers as they “get up to speed”.

As the analytics firm Crittercism revealed in its report, some applications were caused to crash about 3.3% of the time after the update of Apples iOS 8 operating system. This is about 67% more than the previous versions crashes.
