BlackBerry 10.3.3 has been rolling out to users all over the world since the end of November, and for the most part, the update has gone fine for those who have received it. That's not to say there haven't been some issues among those who updated, though, as the CrackBerry Forums have been busy with folks looking for some help with correcting some issues that have popped up. For their part, BlackBerry has now acknowledged some of the more prominent concerns that have been raised.
After updating the BlackBerry 10 device to BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.3, the device may experience performance issues.
This may include some of the following:
- Slow/poor performance
- Menu items missing or slow to respond
- Device temperature warmer than usual
- Applications not opening
- Unable to connect to wireless networks
As for the cause of the issues, BlackBerry notes "The above mentioned issues, and other related issues may be a result of the filesystem migration that can occur for up to 24 hours after the OS update." and that while the situation is under investigation, no resolution is currently available. They do however suggest that no user action should be taken for a period of 24 hours after the update, allowing it time to settle in. If after those 24 hours issues remain, a reload of the software is recommended.
Personally, I haven't any issues with the update on any of my BlackBerry 10 devices but to be fair; I'm not using them on a daily basis either to know. I've moved into the DTEK60 long ago, so even if there were issues, I might not notice them. For you folks who do use BlackBerry 10 on a daily basis, though, how did your BlackBerry 10.3.3 update go? Have you had any of the BlackBerry noted issues after updating to 10.3.3? Let us know in the comments.
