The new software updates for iPhone’s and iPad’s appears to have a bug that makes some people unable to click on links.

The problem is leaving people unable to open links if they click on them in Safari, Messages, Mail and a range of other apps. When people try, the app seems to break and just hangs or completely crashes.

Others have reported that they simply can’t do anything with the links, and pressing on them makes nothing happen.

Though the release of iOS 9.3 mostly went smoothly, some issues have been reported in the week since it was pushed out to devices. Owners of older devices reported that the update was leading their phones and tablets to break, and Apple has released new software and advice to help people dealing with those problems.

The company hasn’t yet responded to the newly-reported problems with links.

It is still unclear how widespread the issue is, though a forum thread on Apple’s website has already received tens of thousands of views. The bug appears to mostly affect the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on iOS 9.3, but there have been some reports of similar problems on older phones and older software versions.
