For a major iOS release that was relatively light on important new features off the bat, iOS 9 received a pretty big point update in the form of 9.3, with Night Shift Mode, more 3D Touch shortcuts for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and a host of noteworthy improvements for News, Health, and CarPlay apps.
But the surprisingly momentous add-ons also hauled a fair share of bugs, including a few very problematic ones that prompted an expeditious sub-point iOS 9.3.1 rollout. Certain system glitches are unfortunately still standing, which is why Apple immediately started work on iOS 9.3.2.
This smaller than small update however is in no rush to be dispatched to the masses, with a third beta build available for developers and testers now. It’s entirely possible Cupertino is taking its time fully stabilizing version 9.3.2 as it’ll be the last to hit iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches in advance of iOS 10’s formal announcement at WWDC in June.
Based on recent history, we wouldn’t rule out a subsequent iOS 9.4 seeing daylight before build 10 actually launches in the fall, though we’re merely speculating when we should focus on what iOS 9.3.2 Beta 3 brings to the table. Namely, 32MB or so of fixes for bugs like Night Shift deactivation in Low Power Mode.
