I updated minecraft on my iPad Pro to V1.9.0, and two days later, the game became unplayable due to a freezing bug. The game starts up okay, but once it’s finished loading, any button I then click (Play, achievements, skins, Xbox Live profile, etc.) freezes the game.
I have spent several hours trying to stop this bug, but it still persists after many restarts of the game, multiple hard and soft reboots of my iPad, and I also discovered I had another version of iOS ready to install, so I did that, and even then, nothing changed.
The most recent update, 1.9, has MANY other bugs as well, but this is by far the worst of any I’ve encountered so far, as I can no longer play minecraft at all (until this is fixed in a later update at least).
The screenshot I have included is the way it freezes when I click ‘Play’ (I have screen animations turned on).
