    Happened to me as well. The apps didn't really install and have the new features promised in the notes. Same versions came up today and redownloaded and now have the new features

    After updating all my apps, I no longer experience the slight lag when tapping on the app icon.

    And it seems it wasn't only the launch images that were an issue with the app variants, they were also causing problems with iOS 9 backups. Here's the info directly from Apple. Apple's disabled app slicing for now and will reenable it in a future update:


    And a support document about how this has been impacting iOS 9 backups:


    "We reprocessed the impacted apps and made updated versions of them that are available for customers."

    I'm actually still having some problems with this on a more limited basis. I called Apple Care and well if ignorance is bliss these people are probably the happiest people in the world. I'm tired of this happening on my iPhone 6+ and on my 2 iPads.

    Noticed what seems to be the same issue happening over the last couple of days on the U.K. iOS App Store.

    Only noticed because the release notes for an ‘updated’ app mentioned support for the new iPhone screen sizes, yet it didn’t fill iPhone X display. Looking closer, the app updated was dated 2 years ago.

    "iOS apps are getting updates because of LLVM’s Bitcode

    Example: a 2 year old build gets recompiled on Apple’s server because of some new compiler optimization and becomes available in the App Store without any action from the developer"
    That's what a developer said on Twitter about this issue. I'm not a developer, have no knowledge about this, so all I can do is quote.
