    On my new Mini 4 running iOS 9.0.1. Game Center stopped working. Just gives a blank white screen. If I go to Settings->Game Center, then Settings freezes and crashes. Resetting my Mini 4 doesn't help.

    On my iPad Air 2 running iOS 9.0.1 Game Center is working normally.

    I googled and see this problem has happened before with Game Center. Not sure if there's anything to do, or just wait for Apple to fix it in an iOS update.

    Anyone else having this issue recently? If so, what iPad model and what iOS version?

    UPDATE: this is now a known iOS 9 bug. Read this news story for details:

    It appears to be somewhat random in what devices are affected. In my case, my iPad Air 2 is not. But my Mini 4 is. It can apparently affect any iOS device running any version of iOS 9.

    Apple is aware of it and working on it, according to the news.

    I have the 64gb LTE Mini 4. It is running iOS 9.0.1 and there is no problem on my device in settings or in the app itself.

    This issue is now in the news. Basically, nothing the user can do will fix it.
