Shortly after the iOS 9.3.3 update delivered bug fixes and performance updates Apple rolled out a iOS 9.3.4 update that includes security fixes. Now Apple is pushing iOS 9.3.5 to the iPhone and iPad.

The iOS 9.3.4 update broke the jailbreak, and fixed security issues. With iOS 9.3.5 there is a fix for a security issue, which Apple fixed just 10 days after the last update. This comes just a month before we expect the iOS 10 update.

The iOS 9.3.5 update is available for all devices able to run iOS 9 as a free download. This new iOS 9.3.5 update focuses security and it is recommended that users install it.

The iOS 9.3.5 release notes include three bug fixes including one that could allow someone to access your personal data using a link sent in a text message. Lookout says that this can happen “invisibly and silently,” so the victim would not know that it is compromised.

Night Shift for iPhone Promises Better Sleep

The free iOS 9.3 update adds Night Shift. With Night Shift the iPhone uses your iPhone's clock and your location to automatically shift the colors to a warmer, less blue, mode so that it is easier on your eyes. In the morning the display automatically returns to normal.

iOS 9.2 does not include any features to adjust the warmth of the display to make it easier to fall asleep after using your iPhone.

One of the biggest reasons to jailbreak the iPhone for the past several years has been for access to f.lux. This tweak adjusts your iPhone or iPad display to deliver a warmer light at night so that it is easier to fall asleep after using your iPhone or iPad.

Here's how to use Night Shift in iOS 9.3 to get a better night of sleep. 

This is important because using bright blue light at night can interrupt your circadian rhythms, making it hard to fall asleep. This is part of why you may lay down exhausted but are unable to sleep after wasting 20 minutes on your iPhone or iPad in bed.
