iOS 10.3.2 update is out for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch – bugfixes galore!

Apple is rolling out the iOS 10.3.2 update to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. It should be compatible with all Apple devices capable of running iOS 10, including the iPhone 5 and 5c. However, we have no means of confirming this by now. The best way to see if your device is compatible with the update and install it is to head to the Settings > General > Software Update menu, then tap "Download and Install" if iOS 10.3.2 is available. Another way to go about this is by connecting your iOS device to a computer and using iTunes.
A final (or close to final) touch-up of iOS 10 before iOS 11 takes reigniOS 10.3.2 is an update meant to fix bugs while improving performance and security features. You won't see any new functionality added, but given that each of the five (or so) beta versions Apple released prior to the official launch contained thorough lists with fixed bugs and issues. There's a lot this update does behind the scenes, so don't dismiss it as inessential.
As a reminder, iOS 11 is just around the corner, ready for an announcement at Apple's WWDC conference which starts June 5. Some rumors of little credibility but big hope suggest iCloud integration and more contextual learning capabilities for Siri, as well as group FaceTime calls and design tweaks as possible new additions. Apple doesn't seem to be running out of ideas anytime soon!

@Bucky - iOS devices have far and away more issues than all of Samsung devices combined, according to info already seen on PA. But when you drop all the phones Samsung makes and just pick the S and Note alone, they sure have far less issues than any "one" single iPhone model you can name. Samsung's worse single phone was the S6 family which was 3 devices and its highest rate of failure was 7%. Apple's iPhone 6 alone accounted for 29% of Apple failed devices. In fact, the top 5 failed phones models of in the past coupe of years? Well 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were all secure by the Apple iPhone, while Samsung didn't even make the top 5. So yea, enjoy the updates from Apple. God knows "WE" need them. I have an iPhone as well. Android as a whole, can't afford to have as many issues as IOS; because they aren't gonna get fixed in a reasonable amount of time. Facts show Android has far less issues overall, even on the crappiest of Android models. Again be fair. According to the facts PA showed, Samsung had a 44% failure rate, when you combine all selling models, which had a sells total of over 300M+. While Apple, in 2016 alone, sold 220M phones an in 2 quarters, had a 58% failure rate, which encompassed mostly the iPhone 6 and 6S models; but also included the iPhone 7, where in the first week after release, one exploded in transit and another after a customer bought it. 58% of 2 models died while Samsung who makes 50+ models only had a 44% rate after 12 months, but Apple had 58% in just 6 months. Imagine what Apple will have in 12 month? Based on this alone, Apple has a higher failure rate, a higher return rate. Which is why I stated many times, when you go to an Apple store there are 2 crowds, visitors and people waiting to get their crap fixed. The lines for buying, are all very short at every location I've been 2 and there are 2 locations with 30 mins of my house. Stop flexin' your invisible muscles "joe", you aren't foolin' anyone here, other than yourself.

To be fair, there's failure rate and there's convenience of solving the issue. I live 6 minutes on the train and a 10 minute walk from my closest Apple Store, if I have a problem I can probably have it fixed in less than a day. If my Samsung phone fails, which it did (my S6 had overheating problems) I had to go to the carrier who took it for an hour to diagnose the problem, they wanted to send it off to Samsung so I just caved and switched to a 6S, I'd been wanting to for a few weeks at that point. I think last time I heard Apple had a higher customer satisfaction than Samsung. Anyway... this was a post about a new iOS release, not failure rates and as far as I can tell this build feels solid, as has every other iOS build been for me post 10.1.
