9 Things to Know About the iPhone 6s iOS 10.3 Update

The 6s 10.3  is a massive  for the former flagship and today we want to take a look at the most important things 6s users need to know about the current version of 10.

Earlier this year, Apple confirmed an iPhone 6s 10.3 with a release into its beta program for developers and the general public.

In late March, Apple pulled the iOS 10.3 update from beta and released it for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

iOS 10.3 is much bigger than its predecessor (iOS 10.2.1) and it’s an update you should have your eyes on as we cruise through the month.

If you are coming to iOS 10.3 from the iPhone 6s iOS 10.2.1 update, your download
will be substantial, several hundred megabytes.

If you’re coming to it from something older than that, your iOS 10.3 update will be even larger thanks to the previous versions of iOS. They’re baked into iOS 10.3.

Today we want to take a look at the most important things you need to know if you’re already on iOS 10.3 or if you’re thinking about installing the iOS 10.3 update on the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.

This roundup looks at the iPhone 6s iOS 10.3 update’s performance, the current state of iPhone 6s iOS 10.3 problems, and a quick glimpse at what’s next from Apple and iOS 10.

iPhone 6s iOS 10.3 First Impressions

 1 / 9

Before we get into the iPhone 6s iOS 10.3 update’s performance, a quick note about the iOS 10.3 installation process. 

The iOS 10.2.1 download
/installation process took us about 17 minutes to complete. This is abnormally long and there’s a chance your upgrade will take longer. (We came to iOS 10.3 directly from iOS 10.2.1.)

We suggest putting 30 minutes of quiet time aside to monitor the download
and the installation process for problems. We didn’t run into any issues but there’s always potential for trouble.

We’ve been using the iPhone 6s iOS 10.3 update for a week now and the update is currently performing well on our iPhone 6s. 

Battery life is holding up and we haven’t seen any abnormal drain on the iPhone 6s model we’re using to test the iOS 10.3 update. We’re still able to get a full day of use when using a mixture of Wi-Fi and LTE. 

If you recently installed iOS 10.3 and you’re seeing abnormal battery drain issues, give it a couple of days. Sometimes it takes a few days for the battery to settle in. If the problems persist, you’ll want to dig into some fixes.

Connectivity remains stable as we push away from the update’s release date. We’ve tested the phone and the update with several ISPs, routers and Bluetooth devices and we haven’t noticed any major issues with our connections. They remain strong and fast.

The iPhone 6s’ UI is fast and we haven’t experienced any lag, random reboots or freezes during our testing. The iOS 10.3 update feels stable and fluid.

So far, the transition from iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.3 has been extremely smooth. We haven’t run into any significant performance issues at the week milestone.

The iOS 10.3 update is certainly worth a look if you’re running into issues on an older version of iOS 10 or if you’re concerned with your devices security. The iOS 10.2.1 update comes with a mind-boggling number of security patches. It also comes with some brand new features. 

If you’re coming from an older version of iOS, like iOS 9, you might want to snag a second opinion before installing the update on your device.
