苹果紧急推送iOS 9.3.1修复链接崩溃的Bug

【苹果紧急推送iOS 9.3.1修复链接崩溃Bug】苹果紧急推送介绍中也简单的仅写到“修复Safari及其他应用中轻点链接会造成应用不响应的问题”。这个Bug是由于iOS 9的一个新功能造成的,即通用链接。这个功能可以通过Safari直接打开某个App。但第三方App开发者滥用这个功能造成了崩溃。http://www.looooker.com/?p=25817

Apple releases iOS 9.3.1 with fix for bug that causes tapping links to crash iPhones

无标题

Well that was quick. A couple of days after a bug affecting iOS started making the news, Apple has released a fix. iOS 9.3.1, now available on the iPhone and iPad, fixes this bug. The changelog is quite short as there’s only one item. “Fixes an issue that caused apps to be unresponsive after tapping on links in Safari and other apps,” it says.

As a reminder, many users reported on Apple’s forums that Safari or any other app would crash if they tapped on a link. It turns out some third-party app developers started abusing an iOS 9 feature, universal links. The bug wasn’t just affecting iOS 9.3, it was also affecting users on older versions of iOS 9.

With iOS 9, Apple introduced Universal Links, a brand new way to handle links with native apps. App developers, such as YouTube, can register domain names to open web links directly into an app, bypassing Safari.

That’s why when you click on a youtube.com/somethingsomething link, iOS opens the YouTube app instead of loading a web page in Safari. This is a nifty feature, except when app developers abuse it.

But some developers, such as Booking.com, associated their apps with all sorts of domains — too many domains to be precise. With 2.4MB worth of domain-name-to-deep-link entries in the Booking.com app, the swcd process that checks universal links was overflown. In other words, Apple didn’t put a limit on universal links and some app developers abused it.

It’s good to see Apple reacting so quickly. But this bug also shows that universal links are still a young technology and Apple still has some work to do to optimize them. If you encountered this bug, head over to the Settings app on your iOS device. Then go to General > Software Update and update your device.
