    Has anyone received yet the OTA update for 9.3.5?
    I did not receive any notification on this updates.
    Is it just me or has anyone been delayed in getting this?

    Is there a setting that I have to do or something to get the notifications which I used to get?
    Have been getting notified of updates up until 9.3.4, but as for 9.3.5 I am still waiting and nothing yet.

    I am on my home WiFi network.

    I think it takes a few days for the notification to show up depending on when it last checked for an update.
    Why not just go into settings->about->software update and get it.

    In front of my computer
    I found out about it this morning when I had my 5s plugged in and updating via iTunes. First time I'd installed anything with the 5s plugged into my MacBook. Installed on 5 and 5s, both phones functioning normally. Then I heard about it via a talk radio station's newscast. The newscast indicated that Apple was urging people to install 9.3.5 as soon as possible so users would not get spied on, announcer's words not mine.

    I usually get the updates through over the air (OTA). And besides, I am not a big fan of iTunes.
    And yes, I know, I can do it manually as well within the phone, but I do wish to know as to why the OTA method is delayed. Just want to know the reasoning behind it as to why.

    I used to get update notifications but should I wait some more?

    Thanks in advance

    The notifications always took some time and came at different times for different devices. Some people would get them in a day or two, others perhaps even as far as a week. Nothing really new there. Simplest thing is to manually check for and download/install the update if you find out about one being available before you are notified automatically.

    Installed 9.3.5 yesterday on my iPad Pro 9.7. It has messed up my WIFI. I have a 150mbps broadband service, which I achieved yesterday before installing 9.3.5. Now the best I can get is 46mbps and that is when it is working, which is intermittent. I did the same installation yesterday on my iPad Mini 2 and that seems fine. I still get 150mbps on the iPad Mini 2.

    Anyone having problems and is there a fix?

    Strange, have you switched to a different channel on your router? Maybe the channel that your on or using in your network is congested.

    Still waiting for the update, but I guess its better to wait to see if there are more negative feedbacks.

    No. All I did was install the update.

    My service provider is Virgin Media on fibre and I very rarely get congestion.

    The best way I've found to update OTA is to close/clear out all apps, then run the update. Afterwards I let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to let it index. I've never had any probs when doing this. Again,just a suggestion.

    And just updating without doing anything specific aside from letting the update run and then using the device right after it is done updating is something that usually works for many people just fine as well.

    iOS 9.3.5 works flawlessly on my ip6+ and ip5. I also think it fixed an intermittent display flicker I was sometimes getting with 9.3.3.

    I didn't wait for a notification. Just went into settings and downloaded it. Went smooth and there have been no hiccups. Nice to see that Apple was really on the ball with this one.

    This is true. I was just suggesting another way for peeps that have had trouble in the past.

    Still no update notifications....I even restarted my phone now. Still nothing.
    Is this normal at all???

    Anyways, I will have to do a manual update then.

    On the other hand, I am seeing a few issues on 9.3.5 in this forum.

    It's not unusual. Many people don't wait for notifications. Notifications simply tell you that the update is available, which you already know.

    Experiencing huge battery drain on my 6a and iPad mini 4 after installing to 9.3.5. Anyone have similar issues and can offer a fix?

    Tried to update iPhone 6S Plus on Monday nite (08/29) via iTunes as usual, after running a manual backup. Process stalled out for one hour at the "Preparing iPhone for Update" stage. Finally I checked the iPhone to see if it was still showing iOS 9.3.4 and that nothing else had changed and then I unplugged the cable and gave up. There's also an iPad 4 and iPad Mini-R to update.

    Plan on attempting again tonite (Friday 09/02).
