iOS 9.3 Update: How To Install On iPhone, iPad

Apple released the latest version of its mobile operating system iOS 9.3 last Monday, and it is now available for download for iPhone and iPad owners. The new update brings a number of new features such as Night Shift Mode, Secure Notes, updated Health and News app aside from the security updates for bug fixes to your devices. To know more about the all the features in iOS9.3 check here.

Advertisement Here’s everything you need to know about updating your iPhones and iPads to iOS 9.3:

1.Is your device eligible?

Advertisement

First of all, in order to update your Apple iPhone and iPad, your device needs to be eligible to get this latest update since not all devices support the iOS 9.3. As long as your device isn’t more than around two years old, you’ll be able to upgrade it to get some or all of the new features. The features such as 3D Touch options are exclusive to iPhone 6S and 6S Plus users alone.
iOS 9.3 is available for the iPhone 4s and newer, the iPad 2 and newer, and the 5th- and 6th generation iPod touch. That’s the same set of devices on which iOS 8 runs – none dropped off the upgrade table this year.

The devices that can’t be upgraded to iOS 9 include the Original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, original iPod touch, iPod touch 2nd-gen, iPod touch 3rd-gen, iPod touch 4th-gen and original iPad.

2. Backup your important data

Advertisement

It’s good to make sure that all of your photos, tunes, videos, settings, contacts and more don’t go away along with your old operating system. You can backup via iTunes or iCloud.

So before beginning the upgrade, backup your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iCloud or your computer via iTunes. It’s unlikely that anything would go wrong, but if it does, you end up losing any data that’s changed since your last backup. Better safe than sorry.
Plus, it’s a real hassle to have to start from scratch if there’s a problem. You’ll have to reinstall apps, add email accounts, sync contacts and enter lots of logins and passwords. Make a full backup to iTunes and click the ‘encrypt backup’ box and your passwords and apps will all be backed up (and restored if need be). Your computer needs to be authorized – you’ll be prompted to sign in if it isn’t – to backup all your apps. It’s not necessary to backup apps since they can be downloaded again automatically during a restore.

3. Clear Space

Advertisement

You’ll need to clear space for the update as it requires at least 1.3GB of storage for temporarily storing the download during the update. You can check how much space is available by tapping Settings > General > Usage. The list of apps will tell you which ones are using up your phone or tablet’s storage.

Usually, the photos and videos occupy more storage, so transfer these to your PC or the cloud using Dropbox, Google Photos or another similar service, then delete those you don’t need on your device to free up space.

4. Over the air (OTA) update

Apple will send a pop-up notification on your screen at some point telling you that a software update is available. You can also check your Settings app to see if there’s a small red alert badge, telling you it’s time to update.

If you don’t see the alert, you can manually force your device to update, Tap on Settings > General > Software Update. Your phone or tablet will check if iOS 9.3 is available and you can then follow the instructions on screen.

When prompted, tap Download to download the iOS 9.3 update. Once this is finished, tap Install to upgrade iOS and follow the on-screen instructions.

5. Update via iTunes

You can also update via iTunes. You’ll need to connect your device to a computer running iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version (currently 12.3.3) of iTunes. Connecting your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch should display a message saying a software update is available. If you don’t see this, simply click on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in the Devices list and then click the Check for Update button.

You’ll be prompted to download and install the update – make sure you don’t disconnect your device before the upgrade process is finished.

You can skip the queue to avoid the slow download from Apple’s servers and download the iOS 9.3 unofficially from other websites. However, this method is pretty much risky if you don’t know what you’re doing. In order to learn more about this, head over to PC Advisor website right here.

iPad Air 3 Release Date And Specs: 'Air' Variant Replaced?

Apple will reportedly reveal a new iPad Air model this 2016. Apparently, the tech company is set to premiere a new iPad Air 3 but will possibly be removing the “Air” variant and will supposedly be integrated into the iPad Pro, according to 3G UK.

Advertisement

The move is reportedly due to Apple “trimming down and simplifying its iPad lineup” which will then be a result of the iPad Air 2 being the last of the “Air” model, ChristianToday reported. Instead of being introduced to the iPad Air 3, the tech company will be announcing a new 9.7-inch tablet under the iPad Pro line.

iPad Air 3 Features

According to a 9to5Mac report, the next generation iPad Pro will come in 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch models and will feature an A9X processor and RAM upgrade. It will reportedly support Apple Pencil and have a Smart Connector port that will be able to attach an Apple smart Keyboard.

Check out the rumored specifications obtained on the upcoming iPad Pro from 3G UK:

Advertisement Dimensions (mm): 240 x 169.6 x 6.15 TBCWeight (g): TBCBattery capacity (mAh): TBCColors: Space Grey, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold TBCScreen size (inches): 9.7 TBCResolution: 1536 x 2048 TBCPixel per inch (PPI) 264 TBCProcessor: 2.26GHz dual-core TBCProcessor make: Apple A9X TBCRAM: 4GB TBCInternal storage: 32/128GB TBCExpendable storage up to (GB): N/ACamera: 8-megapixel and 1.2-megapixel TBCOperating System: iOS 9 TBC

According to 9to5Mac, “Sources say that Apple is slowing down production of older iPad mini and original iPad Air models, meaning that the iPad mini 2 and first-generation iPad Air are likely to be discontinued upon the launch of the smaller iPad Pro.” The new iPad Pro is set to launch at the Apple event in March together with the supposed 4-inch iPhone 5se and new Apple Watch band options.

9.7 Inch iPad Pro vs HTC Nexus 9: Which Tablet Is Better?

Apple has just finished announcing the latest iPad during their special media event yesterday and tablet fans are already dying to get their hands on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. While many were expecting the 9.7-inch tablet to be the next generation of the iPad Air, the recent announcement during the media event confirms what The BitBag has previously reported that the latest tablet from Apple would be marketed as a smaller iPad Pro.

Advertisement

The new 9.7-inch iPad is certainly a lot smaller than the gargantuan 12.9-inch iPad Pro which was launched last year but don’t let its size fool you. The Verge reports that the smaller iPad Pro still sports some of the great features of its larger predecessor as it comes with Pencil and Smart Keyboard compatibility, four speaker grills and a boost in terms of RAM as well as processor speed.

Advertisement

While the smaller iPad Pro is certainly a powerful device, the comparison with other great tablets certainly can’t be avoided. One of the biggest challenges to the iPad Pro is the Nexus 9 tablet which is manufactured by HTC.

With an 8.9-inch display, it is very similar in size to the iPad Pro based on the specs found for the two tablets on Phandroid. When it comes to storage capacity though the latter would have the advantage as the new iPad Pro comes in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB options while the Nexus 9 only comes in 16GB and 32GB models.  In terms of RAM, the iPad Pro still has the edge as it sports 4GB of RAM compared to 2GB in the Nexus 9.

The camera would also be in favor of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro as it features as 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel selfie camera while the Nexus 9 sports an 8-megapixel rear shooter and a 1.6-megapixel front camera. The price though would be an advantage of the Nexus 9 as it is only priced starting at $290 while the iPad Pro starts out at $599.

While both tablets are great options for tech lovers, it’s clear that the 9.7-inch iPad Pro has the advantage overall due to the added features and higher specs. You can’t go wrong with the Nexus 9 too though so either tablet would be a great choice in my opinion.

1.Is your device eligible?

First of all, in order to update your Apple iPhone and iPad, your device needs to be eligible to get this latest update since not all devices support the iOS 9.3. As long as your device isn’t more than around two years old, you’ll be able to upgrade it to get some or all of the new features. The features such as 3D Touch options are exclusive to iPhone 6S and 6S Plus users alone.
iOS 9.3 is available for the iPhone 4s and newer, the iPad 2 and newer, and the 5th- and 6th generation iPod touch. That’s the same set of devices on which iOS 8 runs – none dropped off the upgrade table this year.

The devices that can’t be upgraded to iOS 9 include the Original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, original iPod touch, iPod touch 2nd-gen, iPod touch 3rd-gen, iPod touch 4th-gen and original iPad.

2. Backup your important data

It’s good to make sure that all of your photos, tunes, videos, settings, contacts and more don’t go away along with your old operating system. You can backup via iTunes or iCloud.

So before beginning the upgrade, backup your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iCloud or your computer via iTunes. It’s unlikely that anything would go wrong, but if it does, you end up losing any data that’s changed since your last backup. Better safe than sorry.
Plus, it’s a real hassle to have to start from scratch if there’s a problem. You’ll have to reinstall apps, add email accounts, sync contacts and enter lots of logins and passwords. Make a full backup to iTunes and click the ‘encrypt backup’ box and your passwords and apps will all be backed up (and restored if need be). Your computer needs to be authorized – you’ll be prompted to sign in if it isn’t – to backup all your apps. It’s not necessary to backup apps since they can be downloaded again automatically during a restore.

3. Clear Space

You’ll need to clear space for the update as it requires at least 1.3GB of storage for temporarily storing the download during the update. You can check how much space is available by tapping Settings > General > Usage. The list of apps will tell you which ones are using up your phone or tablet’s storage.

Usually, the photos and videos occupy more storage, so transfer these to your PC or the cloud using Dropbox, Google Photos or another similar service, then delete those you don’t need on your device to free up space.

4. Over the air (OTA) update

Apple will send a pop-up notification on your screen at some point telling you that a software update is available. You can also check your Settings app to see if there’s a small red alert badge, telling you it’s time to update.

If you don’t see the alert, you can manually force your device to update, Tap on Settings > General > Software Update. Your phone or tablet will check if iOS 9.3 is available and you can then follow the instructions on screen.

When prompted, tap Download to download the iOS 9.3 update. Once this is finished, tap Install to upgrade iOS and follow the on-screen instructions.

5. Update via iTunes

You can also update via iTunes. You’ll need to connect your device to a computer running iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version (currently 12.3.3) of iTunes. Connecting your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch should display a message saying a software update is available. If you don’t see this, simply click on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in the Devices list and then click the Check for Update button.

You’ll be prompted to download and install the update – make sure you don’t disconnect your device before the upgrade process is finished.

You can skip the queue to avoid the slow download from Apple’s servers and download the iOS 9.3 unofficially from other websites. However, this method is pretty much risky if you don’t know what you’re doing. In order to learn more about this, head over to PC Advisor website right here.
