    Should I update my iPhone via iTunes if I want to jailbreak in the future?

    • Guilherme 

      Definitely. I’d recommend a restore tough.

    • Jaikbreak is dead.

      • Erick Reyes

        What are you talking about? You make no sense. Jailbreak isn’t dead

      • Dead as as a doornail. And with each new jb it seems there’s less and less tweaks. I honestly don’t even open cydia anymore. Nothing exciting or really cool anymore.

      • isoulhack3r3born

        agreed !!

  • Burge

    A Jailbreak release is put back again.

    • Guilherme 

      iThink it’s coming!

    • Now it is the right moment for jalbreak release, 9.7 inch iPad Pro and iPhone SE are in stores, along with stable release of iOS9.3.

  • Dave

    The downloads section hasnt been updated yet.

    I won’t update unless it’s fixed all the lagging that I’ve been having on my iPhone 6 Plus. My iPhone 5S is running faster than my 6 Plus on 9.3. It boots faster, loads apps faster, and the 6 Plus has dropped frames, and stuttering. Anyone else having the same issue?

    • Burge

      My 6 is running great. Have you tried a fresh install of iOS and set up as new ?

      • Jose Rivera

        Yup… But then I updated to 9.3.1 and it ran a little smoother and that made it a little better.

      • Jose Rivera

        I ditched the 6 Plus because it was lagging from what I was experiencing. I moved to the 6S Plus and I’m loving it. Haha Maybe it’s the fact that the device isn’t rendering anything at 1080×1920 like the display is, but at 1242×2208 and then downsampling everything.

  • Waiting for jailbreak desperately. Wonder when it will come..

  • Tommy

    finally! this fixes the crash on safari links. somehow i dont know why i seem to be the only one with this issue. my other friends on the 6s did not had this issue with 9.3. well good that its dead and gone.

  • andy

    LOL i ceebs downloading it freshly through itunes and restoring again. I just gonna OTA it instead, i ceebs wasting another 1.8gb or so just for a small bug fix ios software! 😛

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    Not sure what all the fuss is about but I had iOS 9.3 on both my iPhone 6 and 6S Plus and I did NOT encounter any web links crashing when tapping and holding. Still updated to 9.3.1 though.

  • Is it just me or every time I update my iPhone 5s to 9.3.1 I always get error code 14 ?

    • Tommy

      try updating in settings app
