    I agree, it should be a nice little update. Busy today, so I probably won't update till this evening or tomorrow.

    It's a very big 1.6gb on my iPhone 6plus because I was running the iOS 9.3 beta so this update is the full install instead of a delta update. It'll be a similar update size on my iPad Air 2 which is also running iOS 9.3 beta.

    Heh. That's the price you beta people pay. A huge update size, and little new to show for it (because you had most of it already). :)

    I just checked my iPad Air 2, the update size is 1.4gb.

    BTW, with my slow internet connection it'll take 2 hours for my iPhone update to download.:(

    That's because I was running iOS 9.3 beta on my iPad Air 2. This means updating to the public release version of iOS 9.3 is the full install instead of the delta update available to users currently on iOS 9.2.1.

    First, please tell us which iPad model you own? As w/ previous upgrades/updates, the IPSW firmware packages will vary in size depending on which device (and also its features) you have - e.g. checking HERE shows that the the size difference between updating an iPad 2 vs. an iPad Air 2 is about 0.5 GB, which likely relates to more features available for the newer device - the image just emphasizes that each device is unique in its update/upgrade needs (same link).

    Second, as to your 204 MBs, something is wrong w/ your download - please provide the information asked and also 'how' you are doing the update - Dave :)

    SciFan.. & TP - thanks for your comments - I just updated our 3 iDevices to iOS 9.2.1, and tomorrow we are about to leave for a 5-day trip to Florida (St. Pete's Beach), a delayed celebration of Susan's birthday in January - SO, I'll wait until our return - maybe a 9.3.1 release will appear by then? ;) Dave

    These would be the update files you would use if you updated through iTunes on your computer. Updating OTA without using iTunes would have a much smaller download size as the OTA update file only contains the changes from the previous version.
