    If you've made a backup, go ahead and put the device in recovery mode and then update via iTunes.

    Did it and it worked super fine though it took about an hour and a half. Once again, thanks. I should know all these tricks after having iPhones 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 6, and 6S.

    Beta 7 for 6s plus was 13E5234a. Official version is 13E234. Appears to be the exact same version just updated with an official type of build #. Nothing new to see here if you were on beta 7.

    I noticed it is much faster, faster boot time, faster while connecting to Chromecast, and more responsive than beta 7

    I haven't noticed a single difference. It's the same build just renamed. The version number would have increased if it was an updated build.

    I think what you're seeing is a result of the fact that the OS installed pretty much as a brand new install, instead of a minor incremental update. Otherwise, placebo effect.

    You might be right, the update was about 1.5 Gb in size. We all need more time to get to a conclusion but first impressions were good.

    I did made a install over wifi and erase the device. Using as brand new install, no restore nothing. Just setup as new in iTunes as well. Everything works great and smooth. I feel so good with this update.

    Night Shift and Wifi calling on Verizon were the best two things about this update

    That's what I thought too until post 19 in this thread showed just over 300mb. An earlier post mentioned maybe it included a watchOS update but not sure if that's the case either since I updated my watch this morning and I still have the same space left.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure about that. The update size was quite small.

    I think it's great, but I'm one of the people who had been using the iOS 9.3 betas.

    No issues with the update. I'm always a little nervous but this was smooth.

    Updated yesterday but have some lag with animations. Especially after a device reboot and it is being unlocked for the first time. Anyone else? Thinking to do a fresh install maybe?

    I updated yesterday but waiting until today to respond. The battery life on it seems to be much better, I wanted to see what the decrease was during the night without any use and I only dropped 1%. It seems to be slightly faster also than the previous version and the Night shift was really nice last night.

    Exactly as I thought. No need to downgrade.

    I checked yesterday on my 6s after reading the news that it was officially released. I think I'll hold off for a bit before installing, though. I typically do that anyway. I felt that I installed 9.2.1 a little too fast and noticed faster battery drain than what I had on 9.2.

    I updated my 6S+ yesterday and it went swimmingly. I updated my old 5S also and was concerned since that phone wanted my SIM that now powers the 6S+ before I could complete the 5S's update. This morning, I swapped in the chip from my iPad mini and the 5S update completed as it should have. Now, all 3 devices are humming along nicely. Night shift was interesting. BTW, all 3 updates were over wifi.

    YMMV

    Now that it's official, I'll take the time either later this evening or sometime tomorrow to install a full clean copy of iOS 9.3, via iTunes, and then set up my iPhone as new.
    I'm doing the same right now. It's such a pain but I like the feeling of a freshly restored phone after a major OS update.

    I updated my iPhone 6 (Rogers) from 9.2.1 to 9.3 yesterday and while it seemed to go fine (no errors/problems), I'm now having significant degradation in signal and data quality. Is this affecting anyone else here?
