My pal, Charles Arthur has just published to The Guardian that ‘more than 70 apps which have been updated since 3 July are crashing on launch, apparently due to a problem with Apple’s FairPlay DRM system’.
Charles explains ‘Scores of apps, including the free version of Angry Birds, which have been updated in Apple’s App Store for both iOS and Macs over the past few days are suffering corruption that makes them crash on launch, even when they are deleted and reinstalled’.
The Guardian did manage to get a response from Apple but only suffice to say they were looking into it. You can read more about what Charles has written here.
Whichever way you look at it though, this is a very serious problem for Apple and we would suggest, if at all possible that developers try to hold off sending anymore updates through to Apple until this problem is resolved.
