iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.4 Update: 9 Things to Know After 11 Days
The iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.4 update is currently the the most up-to-date version for Apple’s flagship and today we want to take a look at the most important things iPhone 6s owners need to know about it as we push into the month of August.
In May, just a few weeks after iOS 9.3.1 arrived, Apple replaced it with a new iOS 9.3.2 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. A few weeks later, it pulled an iOS 9.3.3 update out of beta and released it to users around the world.
Just days after the release, Apple replaced iOS 9.3.3 with an iOS 9.3.4 update that brings a single security patch to the iPhone 6s.
If you already upgraded to iOS 9.3.3, iOS 9.3.4 is small and includes a patch for a potential exploit discovered by the Pangu jailbreak team. If you’re coming from iOS 9.3.2 or older, the iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.4 update will be a much larger download
thanks to bug fixes, patches and features.
With the smoke around the release starting to settle, we want to take a look at the important things to know right now about the iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.4 update.
This roundup includes quick impressions of iOS 9.3.4 on iPhone 6s, a look at the current state of iOS 9.3.4 problems, the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, and some tips that will help you get the most out of your update should you choose to install it today.
iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.4 Update: Impressions and Performance1 / 9
Again, if you’re coming from iOS 9.3.3, iOS 9.3.4 is a small update. It took us a grand total of five minutes to download
and install on our device. We didn’t run into any installation problems and we haven’t heard about any widespread installation issues.
We’ve spent just about two weeks with the iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.4 update and here are a few things we’ve discovered about the update.
iOS 9.3.3 battery life appears to be fine. We haven’t encountered any abnormal drain with the new update on board. It seems to be holding up well.
Wi-Fi, LTE and Bluetooth are all working fine at the moment. We’ve tested the update with several different routers, ISPs, and Bluetooth devices (speakers/headsets) and everything seems good. This could change in a heartbeat so we’ll keep an eye on it as we push into September.
The iPhone 6s’ UI is still fast and fluid and all of our core applications are behaving normally. We obviously haven’t been able to test every app on the App Store so read reviews from fellow iOS 9.3.4 users before you install updates on your device.
We haven’t run into an experience-breaking bugs or problems with our version of the iOS 9.3.4 update but it’s still early. We noticed an uptick in random reboots on iOS 9.3.2 but iOS 9.3.4 hasn’t shown the same symptoms. Yet.
So far, iOS 9.3.4 on iPhone 6s is impressive. If you’re already on iOS 9.3.3, and you don’t want to jailbreak, you’ll definitely want to consider installing today. It squashes a potential exploit.
If you’re on something older than that, dig into some additional feedback before you make a decision.
