iOS 9.3 Adds Mid-cycle Features to iOS 9

Apple has added several features to its mid-cycle iOS update in iOS 9.3. The update adds Wi-Fi calling for Verizon Wireless customers, a new Night Shift mode to prevent your screen from keeping you up at night, Touch ID and password protection for notes, PDF syncing in iBooks, and more. you can read all about it in the TidBITS article iOS 9.3 Works the Night Shift, Protects Notes, and More.

Most users will want to install iOS 9.3 right away, because it also addresses a critical iMessage vulnerability that could let bad actors steal images sent over iMessage. Note, however, that a few users of older iOS devices, such as the iPad 2, have reported problems with installing the update, so if your device is long in the tooth, you may want to wait a week or so until Apple has a chance to investigate and resolve the issue.
