    Has anyone had any problems upgrading iPhone 4S to IOS 9.3.6 ? My 4S is currently 9.3.5 and working OK.

    1. Download first then upgrade ?

    2. Download with WiFi only then upgrade ?

    Any advice on upgrading gratefully welcomed

    I've got a 4S on 9.3.5 (not 9.3.6) that works fine (though slow) and there's nooooo way I'm going to install 9.3.6 on it because there's no way to go back to 9.3.5 if it gets wonky. Apple has a long history of introducing new bugs with updates and I don't trust them anymore for a non essential upgrade that might make things worse.

    But perhaps I'm the exception. I've become extremely gun shy of iOS updates after having been burned too many times.

    The only thing this update does is fix a GPS time glitch, it's basically the same version. I tried to install it from the Settings app on 9.3.5 but it never updated so I had to use iTunes.

    This page explains the update: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210239 so it appears 9.3.5 will become "wonky" as of November 3rd.
