iPhone 5 iOS 9.3 Update: 5 Important Details

The  5 9.3 release date continues to move closer and today we want to take an updated look at the most things to know, right now, about the upgrade that could follow the 9.2.1 .

Like many of you, I’ve been an 5 user since its release all the way back in the fall of 2012. The 5 has been a trusty sidekick of mine for many years and it continues to perform at a pretty high level.

My iPhone 5, and your iPhone 5, will move on from the iOS 9.2.1 at some point. Apple’s planning at least one more big iOS for the iPhone 5.


Earlier this year, Apple confirmed an iOS 9.3 update for the iPhone 5, the device’s third milestone iOS 9 upgrade. (iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 were the others). Apple’s iOS 9.3 update is an exciting upgrade but there’s already one disappointment.

Today I want to tell you about that disappointment and some of the other iPhone 5 users should know ahead of the iOS 9.3 release date. It’s still early but some very have already emerged.

Let’s take a look.

Now that the iOS 9.3 beta 3 is out, we’re starting to see feedback about the update’s performance trickle out to those who aren’t using the early version of the software. 

It’s still early but some beta testers are reporting some improvements to performance. The videos below will give you an early look at the update in action and some feedback about the UI speed, the boot speed of the phone and more.

This video compares the iOS 9.2.1 update to the iOS 9.3 beta 2. 


If you aren’t planning to try the early version of the iPhone 5 iOS 9.3 update, you should keep an eye on this feedback. It’ll help you set your expectations for the final release.

We expect Apple to release a few more betas before testing is complete so check back after every single beta for new
