IOS 9.3 13E237 Launched To Repair CaN’t Trigger Mistake On iPads And All iPhones

As promised, Apple has just released updated iOS 9.3 build 13E237 for all older iPhone and iPad models affected by ‘Cannot Activate’ error problem.

The said activation issue was discovered late last week when many users with older iPhones and iPads, specially iPhone 5s and earlier and iPad Air 1 and earlier, got activation issues when updating their devices to iOS 9.3


After acknowledging the problem, Apple released updated iOS 9.3 13E236 build for iPad 2 (Wi-Fi+GSM) model over the weekend with fix for this issue in place. Now it seems Apple has rolled out the fix for all the affected iPhones and iPads with the just released iOS 9.3 build 13E237. For iPad 2 (Wi-Fi+GSM) model though, build 13E236 remains the latest version.

Of course if you are already on iOS 9.3 with no activation issues whatsoever, you don’t need to do anything at this point. This update is only for those older iPhone and iPad models which are affected by the activation issue bug.
