So I'm wondering if a good percentage of ios5 crashes in that chart has to do with ios5 running on older hardware such as 3gs or maybe even 4g.
And a majority of the iOS 4 crashes probably stems from the iPhone 3G and older iPod Touch (I think the 2nd gen still got iOS 4). The hardware just wasn't up for it.
