In March, Apple released its long-awaited iPhone 6s iOS 9.3 update. The update brought a number of new features to iPhone 6s users but it also brought problems.
In response to a glaring iOS 9.3 problem, Apple released an iOS 9.3.1 update for the iPhone 6s and its other iOS 9 powered devices.
In May, just a few weeks after iOS 9.3.1 arrived, Apple replaced it with a new iOS 9.3.2 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models.
Apple’s finally pulled the iOS 9.3.3 update out of the beta and released it to iPhone 6s users around the world.

1 / 9
If you're coming from iOS 9.3.2, iOS 9.3.3 is a small update, 55MB to be exact. It took us a grand total of five minutes to download and install on our device. We didn't run into any installation problems and we haven't heard about any widespread issues.
We've spent just over a week with the iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.3 update and here are a few things we've discovered about the update.
Battery life appears to be fine. We haven't encountered any abnormal drain with the new update on board. It seems to be holding up well.
If do run into iOS 9.3.3 battery issues on your iPhone 6s, take a look at our list of fixes. There's a good chance it's something other than iOS 9.3.3 causing the issue.
Wi-Fi, LTE and Bluetooth are all working fine at the moment. We've tested the update with several different routers, ISPs, and Bluetooth devices (speakers/headsets) and everything seems good. This could change in a heartbeat so we'll keep an eye on it as we push away from the release date.
The iPhone 6s' UI is still fast and fluid and all of our core applications are behaving normally. We obviously haven't been able to test every app on the App Store so read reviews from fellow iOS 9.3.3 users before you install updates.
We haven't run into an experience-breaking bugs or problems with our version of the iOS 9.3.3 update but it's still early. We noticed an uptick in random reboots on iOS 9.3.2 so we're hoping iOS 9.3.3 is a little more stable.
So far, iOS 9.3.3 on iPhone 6s is impressive. If you're already on iOS 9.3.2, you'll definitely want to consider installing today. It squashes bugs and patches up potential exploits.
If you're on something older than that, dig into some additional feedback before you make a decision.
