And of course if you read that article it turns out the bug is with a third party app and not iOS so I don't know why you'd think Apple would be responsible for fixing it.
Nonsense. I did read the article. (Obviously, since I linked to it, right?) No, it's not the app's fault. The app had a file that was "too big". Except it wasn't too big until now, and Apple didn't say "don't make that file too big". It is a bug in iOS 9.3.
