Download iOS 9.3.1 For iPhone And iPad [Direct IPSW Links]

As expected, Apple has released iOS 9.3.1 download links for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners. The roll-out of iOS 9.3.1 has only been on the cards for a relatively short period of time, and piggybacks on the initial public release of iOS 9.3 that was released during Apple’s recent “Let us loop you in” event. Rather than introducing any type of new user-facing functionality, this update aims to fix a recently discovered bug that centres around a universal linking bug.

Registered developers and those enrolled on Apple’s public beta testing program had previously spent a number of months going through the process of throughly testing pre-release version of iOS 9.3 in order to get it ready for a very public release during the recent Spring 2016 product announcement. Almost instantly after going live it was revealed that the firmware contained an issue pertaining to how universal links are handled when certain third-party apps are installed on a host device. This bug would cause the installed iOS device to crash or just hang when links were tapped through Mobile Safari.

After initially acknowledging the issue and informing users that it would released a software update, Apple has now made that update available with an embedded fix for the aforementioned universal linking problem. Giving the immediate problems that some users around the globe experienced with iOS 9.3, Apple has had to act extremely quickly to ensure that a fix for this particular issue was integrated into iOS and issued to the public as soon as was humanely possible. That fix is now migrating through Apple’s servers and making its way to iPhones and iPads around the globe as an over-the-air update.

It’s likely that Apple will have also included some additional elements in the iOS 9.3.1 update. Rather than taking the opportunity to put any new features or functionality in, the release is purely about performance improvements and fixing those bugs and issues that are widely known within the public domain. Those with a comparable iOS device can grab the update right now from the Software Update mechanism on the device, or alternatively, can grab the source file for your specific hardware from our links below.
