Apple sends out revised iOS 9.3 update for those with older iPhones and iPads

Still, that means that there was a possibility that one's iPhone or iPad could end up as an expensive ornament on a desk. So Apple has developed a new version of the iOS 9.3 update that includes the necessary fix that will prevent affected devices from getting caught in an activation loop. The new version of the update does not require the iOS device owner to type in their password to download and install it. Affected devices include the Apple iPhone 5s and the Apple iPad Air 2 and older.
If you already have installed iOS 9.3 in an older iPhone or iPad, you need to sync the device with your PC, go to iTunes and install version 13E236 of the update. On the other hand, if you have one of the older devices and have yet to install the OTA version of the update, you can now do so without fear of bricking your phone or tablet.

Nice to see a revised iOS 9.3 But Apple has finally fixed that lag?

What lag? Adreno, you got to be more specific... I had a little lag when pulling the spotlight down - it's gone now. Is that what your talking about? My iPad 3 is faster than it was with iOS 9.2, and my 5s been smooth already - it's about the same.

I have an iPad 3 as well. It so slooooow. Thank the maker for that hack to turn off animations. Come on Alik... You gotta admit, our iPad3's are incredibly slow compared to even a Galaxy S4. iOS 7 ruined them. My iPad3 was so much fun and snappier when I got it ....with iOS6. 7,8,9 have been horrible for it. Though I must say, 9 is a bit faster than 7 or 8 was. Still so slow though.

For my iPad Mini 2, iOS 9-9.1 was horrible, constantly dropping frames, sometimes even below 30 fps 9.2 fixed most the performance issues, except recent apps was still terrible and constantly dropped frames 9.3 has finally fixed performance in the recent apps, although it still feels slower/less consistent than my Nexus 5, but it's very comparable now
