Can someone explain why it takes months of beta's for a 9.3.x release to fix a handful minor bugs?

Either Apple has put only one developer on this release, or the change log is severly lacking.

I suspect this release took a long because they really wanted to squash a lot of bugs. 9.3.0/9.3.1 added some new things (9.3.1 only existed because of a serious bug I believe), 9.3.2 perfects it.

Message notification does not show up on the lock screen even though show on lock screen was always enabled.

Then list them out. Their release log is pretty laughable to be honest.

The 6S live wallpaper bug isn't fixed after a month of testing. The static wallpaper state is brighter than the moving wallpaper with any stock live wallpaper.

EDIT: It is fixed, but not until you set the wallpaper again.

Possible bug: swipe right on Home screen to view Proactive Siri and only the news is being displayed. If you click "Show More" you can't scroll down.

Edit: everything's back to normal. Weird. 6s by the way.

Bug fixes are always welcome but if you're gonna spend this long in between, throw in some customer features as well. Nothing earth shattering but add in some stock camera features like changing video resolutions, ISO shutter speed etc...just that level of customer service.

Probably the last release for iOS 9 as well. This is speculation of course.

Feels like there are slightly more stutters than the firmware I was previously on, 9.3 (didn't download 9.3.1 at all).

Could be just placebo. Will continue using the phone and see if it's really there.

Animation glitch has been fixed in 9.3.2.
Spotlight Search is looking way smoother now. (I'm on iPhone 5s)

Deleting safari history is still bugged in this version and present since the 9.3


https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/9-3-deleting-safari-history.1962725/#post-22709362


Apple bug report seems to be a waste of time as reported this since IOS 9 several months ago and its still present

It appears the history you are deleting is not Safari history, but Google search history.
Correct me if I am wrong.
