iOS 8.3 available to download now

iphone-6-19
Apple has just released the latest delta update to its popular iPhone operating system. iOS 8.3 is available for iPhone users to download now and weighs in just under 300MB in size.

If you’re one of T-Mobile’s iPhone-toting customers, you won’t notice any major new features, but there are several bug fixes in tow. iOS 8.3 brings new emoji to the keyboard, Siri in a few new languages as well as equipping the digital assistant with a new feature: The ability to initiate a phone call on speakerphone.

Bug fixes include a wide range of issues, ranging from general stability and performance to third-party keyboard performance, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and almost everything in between.

I just checked my settings and found the update waiting there. If you have a compatible iPhone or iPad, check for updates and you should be able to download and install it immediately.

    How’s that Wi-Fi calling for Sprint working out?

    • JLV90

      This update actually enables it for Sprint as long as they have the latest carrier update from Sprint as well, 19.1

      • Fabian Cortez

        I know.

    • KingCobra

      No texting over Wi-Fi and calls drop when leaving the Wi-Fi area.

  • I also notice a new Carrier update

  • UMA_Fan

    Did they make improvements to wifi calling stability? Not nearly as good as tmobiles android and blackberry implementation in terms of reliability.

    • Nearmsp

      The biggest problem is in Android one can force Wi-Fi only calls, not in iPhone.

  • Android_God

    Will this work on the Note 4?!?!?!

    • No it is for iOS devices like iPhone and iPad

    • EndlessIke

      Yes, in a shocking turn of events, Apple has announced full iOS 8 compatibility with all Android devices….

    • George

      Since we bought a Samsung phone, we may have to wait…….. for ever for any update. Apple releases updates and customers get it. In case of Android Google releases updates, OEM delays for 3 – 6 months. Then our T-mobile (or any others) delays them for further 3 – 6 months. In the case of Samsung they are busy releasing some other phones like Note active, Note not-so-actice, Note not-note-worthy and so on.

    I just noticed the T-Mobile moved the Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop update status from Manufacturer Development to T-Mobile testing…. Shouldn’t be long now…..

    • skittle

      Good :) Whoever has my Note 4 should be happy.

  • Jay Lancour

    Woo Hoo!

  • JLV90

    Not today apple, not till jailbreak at least.

  • Adrayven

    Also, go into About as well and pull down, it should get the Carrier update T-Mobile has pushed to iPhones as well.. (Separate from iOS update)

    Now rocking Carrier T-Mobile 19.1

    I got the carrier T-Mobile update when I re-enabled WiFi Sync threw iTunes..

    • Nearmsp

      thanks!

  • Cam Bunton

    I know you guys have had this for ages, but, iOS 8.3 + EE in the UK = Wi-Fi Calling. Whoop!

    • Adrayven

      Nice!

      One problem I have right now is I like ‘Continuity’ feature of call handoff to my iPad or Macbook and WiFi Calling breaks that. :(

      You can only have one or the other enabled.

      • Cam Bunton

        Ergh. That’s disappointing.

        • That I know of you can’t do both, I do hope they change that in the future

  • Android_God

    Will they FINALLY be bringing HD radio?!?!?!?!

  • Raiterio Patterson

    Android updates their core apps on Wednesday, Apple updates their software on Wednesday. Does anyone know the changelog for the carrier update

    • That is one thing I am wondering about, it got 19.0 with iOS 8.3, then a 19.1 update a bit later

  • anshephe

    Just updated and got carrier update 19.1 anybody know what this update if for?

    • Rose Yvette Mosher

      Also curious for what the carrier update is for

  • SouthPhillyPT

    Carrier 19.1 has also been released. What’s new with this carrier update?

    • Anonymouse

      AFAIK it activated WiFi Calling for EE. Not sure what it does for TMUS.

  • 9to5Slavery

    Thanks cam!

  • Raiterio Patterson

    Battery life has improved, but as I was typing this comment; Fleksy and Safari force closed. Hmmm…

    • 9to5Slavery

      Jailbroken?

      • Raiterio Patterson

        Nope. Just updated to iOS 8.3, I don’t know what’s going on. I’ll use my Nexus 5 as a backup

        • 9to5Slavery

          Does the problem still persist? And can you keep record of battery life. What carrier are you on?

        • Raiterio Patterson

          Haven’t had a chance to check out the battery but it seems the same as it was with 8.2 for some reason I can’t any service….eBay, never again

        • 9to5Slavery

          haha

  • Android_God

    I need my Apple brothers and sisters to head over to the Note 4 thread! this should be from a place of love and understanding! Our Android brothers and sisters are dealing with a deep level of emotional pain! they could use all of our support as a process their feelings of living four months without lollipop! I asked you to come together and help these fellow members!

    • 9to5Slavery

      You sound like a cult lol apple and oranges are completely different. So what if android gets updates half a year later? What does that have to do with apple releasing updates couple days later?

      • Android_God

        They are hurting right now!! They could use words of unconditional love free from judgment!

        • John

          With all the complaints of bugs in Lollipop I’m more than content to stay on KitKat until they’re ironed out and someone else serves as their beta testers.

        • 9to5Slavery

          haha. at least you guys build patients for android side. too much modifications people don’t work on themselves they work on their devices. that’s not what life is about! *end criticism*

    • Bradley Karas

      Love is in the air as I type to you good tidings from my S6 on this low band spectrum T mobile deployed in Tampa. And while my Android brothers and sisters weep and while you sit inside the building with no signal to speak of I offer you this imaginary tissue with the Apple logo on one side and Steve Jobs god like face printed on the other and say “peace and jobs be with you”
