Apple iOS 9.3.2 resolves “White Screen of Death” Game Center bug

There is a

Apple
Game Center bug that has consistently caused game apps to crash. The good news is that Apple will likely fix this issue when iOS 9.3.2 is released, according to MacRumors.

What’s wrong with this bug? Many iOS gamers complain that the Apple Game Center app freezes as a blank white screen – known as the “white screen of death”. And since many iOS game apps interact with Game Center, the “white screen of death” effect extends beyond the Game Center app alone. In the video below, tech journalist Craig Grannell demonstrated the issues caused by the bug:

Apple Game Center is used to invite friends to game sessions, track points, and view leaderboards. Because Apple Game Center is essential for multiplayer games and score tracking on iOS devices, it has become infuriating due to its inability to work on many devices. And this problem became constant for users when iOS 8 was released. There is a forum post on iPhone game review website TouchArcade established in December 2015 which has over 740 user comments on the “white screen of death” bug.

The fix was reported by some members of the TouchArcade community who installed the iOS 9.3.2 beta and learned that the Game Center app was working again. “I installed iOS 9.3.2 beta on 3 devices…iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 1 and iPhone 6 Plus,” TourchArcade user Cccee said in a recent post. forum post. “It’s been a few days now and Game Center works on all devices. I haven’t deleted any apps, old or new. I have all the same apps I’ve always had. So far, so good!!! Fingers crossed. » It’s a good sign that Game Center has started working again, but it’s a major bug, so you should be cautiously optimistic that the problem will go away for good once iOS 9.3.2 goes public.

Another bug that has been fixed in iOS 9.3.2 is related to Quick Actions. In iOS 9.3.2, Quick Action context menus will open smoothly in landscape mode rather than having a lag as shown in the previous version of iOS on some devices.

Apple released the first beta of iOS 9.3.2 on Wednesday, April 6 for developers, then made it available for public testers the next day. To test the iOS 9.3.2 beta, you will need to sign up for Apple Beta Software Program. The first beta of iOS 9.3.2 was rolled out within a week of the launch of iOS 9.3.1, which meant that Apple released patches and bug fixes at a rapid pace.

The release of Apple iOS 9.3.1 appeared to be sped up to fix a major Safari bug that caused the browser to freeze after hyperlinks were typed and long-pressed. Safari also crashed when tapped and long-pressed hyperlinks in the Mail app, Messages app, Notes app, and various social media apps.

Even though this bug was fixed in iOS 9.3.1, another bug was discovered in the update that allowed users to bypass PIN and Touch ID lock screen security. Fortunately, this security flaw was “server-side”, so Apple was able to fix it quickly without forcing users to update iOS again.

iOS 9.3.2 should not have main features added as we saw in iOS 9.3. The next time Apple adds major features to iOS is likely to be when announcing iOS 10 at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which takes place annually in June. One of the rumors that have surfaced recently about iOS 10 is the ability to hide pre-installed apps.
