IOS 8.3 ruins unreal engine 3 games?

i just updated my iphone 6 last night and now face an annoying issue with unreal engine 3 based games. Frame rate, audio, and stability issues plague my games. I have tested Infinity Blade 3, Injustice, Mortal Kombat X, Epoch 2,etc.

Anyone else having these issues? Should i simply downgrade or wait for a patch?

The sound is messed up in X-Com: Enemy Within. No idea if it's Unreal 3 engine though

I was playing mortal kombat and I got stuck between a series of two flashing screens that constantly changed at random. Had to hard reset my device in order to exit it as my device was stuck.

Well at least we now know it's not an isolated incident. I'm disappointed that i can't enjoy Mortal Kombat X as much as i'd like to. Hopefully this is fixed soon enough.

Was there any reason you updated to 8.3 so early ? With any update it's best to wait to hear if there's any issues.

I looked over the fixes and thought that the update would most likely do more good than bad. I usually wait a few weeks before updating my IOS as well. No more impulse updating for me. Lol

I always just throw myself into the updates. I've never been burned too badly.
