Update time: iOS 9.3, tvOS 9.2, and WatchOS 2.2 are Here

CUPERTINO, Calif.—As part of its big product event today, Apple is dropping a handful of significant updates to its platforms.


The final versions of iOS 9.3, tvOS 9.2, and WatchOS 2.2 are all available to download for all supported devices. Apple began beta testing the updates back in January.

iOS 9.3 is the biggest update. It brings a new multi-user mode for iPads being used in schools, a more secure Notes app that lets you secure the app with its own password, an easy-on-the-eyes Night Shift screen mode, a few device-specific enhancements for the iPhone 6S and the iPad Pro, and other bug fixes and enhancements.

The tvOS update fixes a lot of the platform’s most glaring omissions, including voice dictation for usernames and passwords and folder support for the home screen. Bluetooth keyboard support is also back. WatchOS 2.2 mainly adds a new version of the Maps app with support for searching for nearby locations. It also supports pairing multiple Apple Watches to a single iPhone if that happens to be something you feel the need to do (it might be popular among developers, at least).

We’ll have more in-depth looks at iOS 9.3 and tvOS soon. All the updates are likely to be the last major patches the operating systems will see before we’re shown all-new versions at WWDC this summer.
