8 Things to Know About the iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.5 Update
In March, Apple rolled out its highly anticipated iOS 9.3 update. It went through an extensive beta but the update immediately caused problems for iPhone and iPad users. To address these bugs and other lingering issues, Apple’s pushed out several more iOS 9.3 updates.
iOS 9.3.1 arrived with some important bug fixes and patches but it failed to fix everything wrong with iOS 9. Next, Apple pushed out an iOS 9.3.2 update to the iPhone 4s and its other iOS 9-powered devices. A few days after that, an iOS 9.3.3 update. A few days after that, an iOS 9.3.4 update.
Now the company’s trotted out a tiny iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.5 update. It’s small but it comes with three very important patches for security issues.
If you’re coming from the iOS 9.3.4 update, iOS 9.3.5 features those three patches and nothing else. If you’re coming from something older than iOS 9.3.4, your iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.5 update 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 9.3.5 update’s performance, its various problems, the iOS 9.3.4 downgrade, and what’s next for the iPhone 4s.
