According to a new study, apps appear to be crashing at a much higher rate on the new iPhone 5s as on either the iPhone 5c or the iPhone 5.

The study, carried out by mobile app management platform Crittercism, looked at hundreds of millions of app launches and says that programs crash around 2% on the iPhone 5s in comparison to less than 1% on the iPhone 5 and 5c.

According to AllThingsD, an inteview with Crittercism CEO Andrew Levy revealed, “Anytime there is new hardware or software release, we see issues. Inevitably, over time, those issues get resolved.”

According to Levy, the reason the iPhone 5s is seeing more crashes than the equally new iPhone 5c could be while developers were able to check their apps for compatibility with iOS 7 during several months of beta testing, the new hardware wasn’t available ahead of time.

The iPhone 5s packs a new 64-bit A7 chip and an M7 coprocessor, while the 5c is nearly identical, internally, to the iPhone 5.

Levy further added it’s not uncommon to see higher crash ratios when new devices or operating systems come out, but since its Apple is aware of the problem, a solution should be imminent.

While Apple has declined to comment on the issue, it has already released two updates for iOS 7.
