Earlier this year, we started hearing whispers about a new update for iOS users. Those whispers were focused on another milestone upgrade, an iOS 9.3 update that would follow in the footsteps of iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2.

With rumors pointing to a release in early 2016, we had a feeling that we’d see an iOS 9.3 beta soon after the release of iOS 9.2.


In January, Apple confirmed an iOS 9.3 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. iOS 9.3 the latest in a series of iOS 9 upgrades for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and it instantly becomes the most exciting iOS 9 update in Apple’s pipeline.

Now that the iOS 9.3 update is confirmed, we want to take a look at the most important details to know, right now, about the iOS 9.3 release.

This roundup will give you a solid look at the early state of the iOS 9.3 update, the iOS 9.3 release date, the iOS 9.3 jailbreak, and some other details that should be on your radar as we inch toward the update’s release.

iOS 9.3 vs. iOS 9.2.1

The iOS 9.3 update is a big one and it's going to be much larger than Apple's current iOS 9.2.1 update. We expect iOS 9.3 to feature bug fixes and security patches but its change log should come with a lot more than that. 

Thanks to the iOS 9.3 beta, we have a solid read on many of the features coming in Apple's next milestone upgrade for iOS 9.

Among them, a new Night Shift feature that promises more sleep, Education features for iPad, some improvements to 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, improved Apple Watch support, and more. 

We've put together a detailed walkthrough that compares iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.2 to the iOS 9.3 update. If you aren't planning to try early version of iOS 9.3, you'll want to give that a glance so that you're prepared for the changes coming with the upgrade. We've also put together a video that you can watch below.

We could see Apple add and remove features during the iOS 9.3 beta process so you'll want to monitor the testing process as it pushes forward.
