iOS 10.3.1 now available for iPhone and iPad

iphone6srearrosegold

iPhone and iPad owners, the time to update has come again.

Apple just released iOS 10.3.1, one week after the iOS 10.3 update. This update to iOS 10.3.1 is a small one, and Apple says that it “includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.”

After iOS 10.3 brought with it new features like Find My AirPods, the update to iOS 10.3.1 is more focused on under-the-hood improvements. That may not sound very exciting, but hey, we rely on these smartphones to stay connected, take photos, communicate with others, and more, so it’s important that they work well.

You can get the iOS 10.3.1 update manually by going into Settings > General > Software Update on your iOS device.

    Very much needed. I have a ticket open with tmobile about slow connection speeds. I get 120mbps down but it takes 7-10 seconds to connect to the website. Now if i use 4G or turn volte everything works great. I will be dowloading this update tonight and will follow up with you guys later. I had a feeling carrier update 28.3 had something to do with it because i noticed it right after i updated to 10.3

      let us know! I work at tmobile and this would be great info to have.

        Will do. A tmobile engineer is calling me tomorrow afternoon. If i would have known about this update i wouldnt have opened a trouble ticket

          It’s a good idea to open a ticket so all possibilities are eliminated. Do give us an update soon if you don’t mine. I am going back to home town in Fresno to see if this new Tower Modernizing/IPhone update will work together to get a better signal. I just moved from Android to iOS because android is really unstable and unreliable in important time of need. I love the experience so far I made the switch to iOS never felt better about it. I am very excited to see what comes next as I am a big fan of the SE size and look I can’t see myself with a different look or bigger size. I told Tmobile that they should have the next generation of SE. I get like 7 hours 30 minutes of battery life with heavy use! Android won’t even last me 2 hours. My home town had in total 16 towers in a time frame being worked on, roughly thier is over one million people in Fresno county and growing way to fast by the 2020 I see Fresno will grow to nearly 1.5 million people it’s currently rate of population is at 250,000 + per year as of 2016 and on going due to Big corporations moving in for a 30 million incentives from Fresno county attracting new companies in i never seen a city grow at this scale within the last few years especially in a town this size. I lliterally feel I’m competing against this many people for my signal.

        Solved, Read above. Its a VPN issue causing slow connection times

      I had this problem a few months ago. I don’t think it has anything to do with the update. They were doing new modernization in my area for a few weeks and I had the same problem. Nothing would ever load and it would take forever to. Same issues. Same fixes.

      Id bank on that

        My iphone 6s plus was working great until the update. Ive been a customer since march 1. Used 50gb last month

  • Corey Jalette

    Not sure if it was this update or a tower upgrade near me, but my iPad used to get 13-15mbps for download speed. Today it’s running at 30mbps. I’ll take it. Lol

  • I have an iPhone 7+ and when I’m at home I get one bar of service… but on my Nexus 6P four bars. Weird right? I realize the bars are kind of arbitrary and I should probably dig into the service menus to figure out the actual signal strength but I’m pretty sure there’s something about iPhone radios they haven’t worked out yet.

    • Sharti24

      The 6p must be connect to band 12 and the iphone to band 4

      • Maybe but why? iPhone 7+ does Band 12 too.

        • Sharti24

          iPhones tend to try and hold the stronger connection as much as possible

        • I think it is a bigger issue. If I go into airplane mode and reconnect it will still go back to the weaker signal. Hope they fix it, but I have a S8 in the mail anyway.

  • E647

    I seem to have a week signal on iPhone 7+ and super slow speeds after 10.3.1 driving around town,multiple dropped calls what gives ? I called some one on a Saturday and they got my message on Sunday almost 12 hours later!

    ****solved***

    Seems like its a VPN issue if you’re using iOS 10.3. I turned off the VPN and it works like a charm.

    Attached is another person who has the same exact issue as me but with verizon
