iOS 9.3 Release Date: 5 Reasons to Get Excited

Apple’s iOS 9.2.1 update is ancient and many users are now focused on the iOS 9.3 update that continue to sit in beta. The iOS 9.3 release date for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch isn’t confirmed just yet but we’re close and it’s time to get excited.

We had heard some rumblings about an iOS 9.3 release for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. In January, those rumors became a reality.

Apple’s confirmed an upcoming iOS 9.3 release for all devices capable of running the iOS 9 operating system.

The iOS 9.3 update is currently in Apple’s beta program and it will be on its way to iOS 9 users around the world sometime in the weeks ahead.

We say sometime because while a partial change log has been confirmed, Apple hasn’t confirmed an iOS 9.3 release date.

The iOS 9.3 update is the next milestone upgrade and it will likely follow Apple’s iOS 9.2.1 update. iOS 9.2.1 is a small but exciting update that helps correct some lingering iOS 9 problems. It’s the version of iOS 9 you’ll get if you install iOS 9 right now.

Keep these things in mind as we push towards the iOS 9.3 release date for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and more.

iOS 9.3 Release Date Might Be Monday

Apple hasn't announced anything yet but thanks to rumors and credible reports we have a pretty solid read on the iOS 9.3 release date. If everything pans out, iOS 9.3 should be out for all iOS 9 powered devices in a few short days.

Apple recently confirmed its long-rumored March media event for March 21st. It didn't tell us what it will be announcing there but rumors have already outlined all of that for us.

Rumor has it, Apple will be announcing a new iPhone and a new iPad during the March launch event. The iPhone SE is expected to be a 4-inch successor to the iPhone 5c. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is expected to be a smaller version of the 12-inch iPad Pro.

The new products will reportedly run iOS 9.3 which means that an iOS 9.3 release date announcement could, and should, take place on March 21st.

Apple typically doesn't put too much of a gap between an iOS release date announcement and the actual release date so it's safe to assume that an iOS 9.3 release date will arrive in and around the March 21st media event. 

We don't have an exact date yet but we know that the release is getting very close. Apple just released an iOS 9.3 beta 7 which is almost certainly going to be one of the last beta releases. Apple typically doesn't release seven betas for x.1/2/3 updates so it shows you how big/important iOS 9.3 is. 

The company also recently released iOS 9.3 support for its TestFlight app, a sign that the iOS 9.3 release is getting close. 

All of the evidence points to an imminent iOS 9.3 release date for older devices and now would be a good time to get familiar with it.
