How to install iOS 9.3 on iPhone and iPad
At one of its annual events, Apple finally officially made iOS 9.3 available to iPhone and iPad users. This update was well anticipated, as it not only fixes a number of iOS 9.2.1 issues, but also adds some interesting features and news to the operating system. Of course, with this new version, some questions arise, such as which devices can install iOS 9.3 and how it can be done. So we have prepared a short guide full of tips and clarifications on the Apple system.
How to install iOS 9.3
First, you need to mention which devices can be upgraded with this version of iOS, which are generally the same as iOS 9. Currently, you can install iOS 9.3 on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPad Pro (both versions), iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Mini 2.
If you have one of these devices, you are ready to install iOS 9.3, but we warn you that the older the device, the greater the chances of an update slowing or crashing than before, even if Apple denies that. .
First and foremost, it is always important that you back up your device, which will help you recover your data if something goes wrong during the upgrade. To do so, you can check out our detailed tutorial on the subject by clicking this link.
It's also worth mentioning that if you've jailbroken your device and want to continue with it, it's best not to upgrade now. If you install iOS 9.3, your device will return to normal and you will not be able to use any of the features or apps you have jailbroken. In this case, it is better to wait until the procedure is released for this version of iOS.
To finally install iOS 9.3 on your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways: through Wi-Fi or iTunes. In general, users prefer to do the procedure using Wi-Fi as it is very fast, convenient and does not require any interaction with iTunes. In fact, we only recommend using iTunes if you had jailbroken your device, after all, upgrading over Wi-Fi can give you a lot of trouble in such cases.
If you decide to use Wi-Fi, open your device's "Settings" and click the "General" tab. Among the options, simply click on “Software Update” and the device will search for iOS 9.3.
You will see some information about the update and the "Download and Install" button below. Just click on it to start the process. We only suggest that you leave the device in a place where the internet signal is very stable and strong, so there will be no problems during the download.
Finally, your iPhone or iPad will take care of everything else and will soon be done installing iOS 9.3, which may take a while.
If you want to do the process through iTunes, there aren't too many difficulties either. Open iTunes on your computer and see if there are any system updates before anything.
All right, connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer so that it connects to iTunes. Wait for any synchronization that needs to be done and click "Check for update" to have the server check for a new version of iOS to install.
ITunes will then find the update and ask if you want to install it by simply clicking “Download and Update” to continue.
It's important to remember that you should leave your device untouched while the update is being installed and not disconnect it from your computer until the process is complete. With everything done right, in a few minutes you'll have iOS 9.3 on your device.
Pretty simple, isn't it? The good thing about installing iOS 9.3 through iTunes is that you don't have to download the update on your device, which is paramount for those with limited storage available.
