Apple working on mass bugs

APPLE has responded to news of widespread problems with crashing iOS and Mac apps and has assured its developers that it is working to resolve the issue, according to various reports.

Apps that received updates on or around July 4 in the US were crashing as soon as people tried using them, leading to user retaliation in a barrage of one-star ratings for the reviews of affected apps.
