iOS 9.3 Build 13E237 For Older iOS Devices Has Been Released, We Suggest Updating Straight Away

Unlike many iOS updates, iOS 9.3 was somewhat botched for older devices, such as the iPhone 5s and earlier, iPad Air and earlier, and the fifth-generation iPod touch. Many users, upon installation, realized that they cannot activate their devices, and were left in limbo. Apple did realize the problem and released an updated version of iOS 9.3 for the iPad 2 cellular model. But today, Apple is taking a much more wider step by releasing an updated version of its latest firmware for the aforementioned iOS devices.

If you haven't updated to iOS 9.3 already, and are sitting on an older firmware version, then simply connect your iOS device to a WiFi network, navigate to Settings > General > Software Update. Download the latest iOS 9.3 update and you're good to go.

Alternatively, you can connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch to your PC or Mac, launch iTunes, and hit the 'Update' button there to get the ball rolling.

Lastly, the revised iOS 9.3 firmware update is available as a direct download from Apple's servers as well, and we have the direct links for it below.

We suggest that you update to iOS 9.3 now if you were holding yourself back for some reason, and perform a clean restore using iTunes to get things up to speed immediately.

It seems as though everything has been resolved from Apple's end and the company has delivered on its promise. But if further issues do arise, we will definitely inform our readers about it, so stay tuned for more coverage in the coming days.

Also be sure to let us know in the comments section if you have updated your device to the latest iOS 9.3 build.
