Apple today rolled out an update to iOS 9.3 that fixes a nasty bug that many iOS device users discovered in the past few days.

Essentially, people tried to click links in Safari — like Google search results — only to find that they didn’t work. Long pressing would sometimes make Safari freeze. Clicking links from the Mail app also didn’t work for several people.

This update should solve those problems.

But this isn’t the first big update Apple release to correct something in iOS 9.3, which rolled out to everyone on March 21. There was also the activation bug that could essentially brick iOS devices during the process of updating to the new version of the operating system.
