iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.1 Update: 10 Things to Know After a Month
A month ago, Apple released the iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.1 update. Now that we’ve hit this milestone we want to take a look at the most important things iPhone 4s users need to know about the upgrade as we push into the month of May.
iOS 9.3 arrived with an extensive change log but it also arrived with some problems including one that forced Apple to roll out a bug fix update. If you check for an update right now on your iPhone 4s you’ll get prompted to install iOS 9.3.1.
If you’re coming from the iPhone 4s iOS 9.3 update, iOS 9.3.1 is small with a single fix for a web link crashing bug. If you’re coming from something older than that, iOS 9.3.1 is going to be a much larger update.
With that in mind we want to take a look at the most important things we think iPhone 4s users need to know about the iOS 9.3.1 update’s performance, its various problems, the iOS 9.3 upgrade, and the iOS 9.3.2 update that will, at some point, take over for it.
