9 Things to Know About the iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 Update
Apple recently pushed out an iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 update. With that in mind, we want to take a look at the most important things to know about the iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 update as we push deeper into the month of May.
In January, Apple confirmed an iOS 9.3 update for the iPhone 5s with a beta release for developers. In March, Apple took iOS 9.3 out of beta and released it to iPhone, iPad and iPad owners around the world.
The iOS 9.3 update delivered new features and enhancements but it also brought some problems, problems that forced Apple to roll out iOS 9.3.1. iOS 9.3.1 wasn’t perfect either.
Earlier this month, Apple rolled out yet another iOS 9 update in an attempt to quell the problems with its mobile operating system. That update is iOS 9.3.2 and it serves as the most up-to-date version of iOS 9 for the iPhone 5s and others.
iOS 9.3.2 is finally out of beta and it brings a short list of bug fixes and patches to iPhone 5s users on iOS 9.3 or iOS 9.3.1. Those who are coming from something older than iOS 9.3 will download
a much larger update.
This roundup is going to help you get familiar with the iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 update. It will provide you with updated feedback about the iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 update’s performance, details about the iOS 9.3 jailbreak, tips to help you get it installed, a look at current iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 problems, and more.
iPhone 5s iOS 9.3.2 Impressions & Performance1 / 9
We’ve spent some time with an AT&T iPhone 5s running the iOS 9.3.2 update and here are a few observations after a few days.
We’ve spent a little less than a week with the iPhone 5s and the device, with its new update on board, is still performing at a high level in key areas like battery life, connectiity, and speed.
We haven’t noticed any abnormal battery drain during regular use and we don’t expect that to change. If you are dealing with poor battery life, be sure to check out our list of fixes.
We haven’t experienced any issues with Wi-Fi, AT&T’s 4G/LTE networks or Bluetooth. We’ve successfully paired the device and its update with several different routers, ISPs, and Bluetooth devices. No problems to report, at least not yet.
The iPhone 5s in our possession is also pretty fast with the iOS 9.3.2 update on board. There’s still a little bit of sluggishness when using Control Center (this was also an issue for us on iOS 9.3.1) but that’s the only noticeable UI lag we’ve seen.
As we head into June, iOS 9.3.2’s performance is still looking very good. If you’re coming from iOS 9.3 you’ll definitely want to consider upgrading. It comes with some noteworthy bug fixes and changes.
If you’re coming from something older, it’s a total judgement call. Dig into feedback and its features and decide if the upgrade is worth it for you and your device.
