7 enterprise bug fixes in iOS 9.3

Mar 21, 2016

Apple's latest iOS 9 software update resolves seven enterprise-specific bugs that affect business users and IT administrators.

Today, just hours after Apple CEO Tim Cook detailed a number of notable new features in its iOS 9.3 software for iPhones and iPads, the company promptly released the update to consumers and enterprise users.

I just updated my iPhone 6s Plus to iOS 9.3, and during the upgrade process I noticed a list of enterprise-specific fixes buried at the bottom of the software details page. None of squashed bugs seem like major issues, but they could be troublesome for business users and IT admins who use Apple’s Volume Purchase Plan (VPP) for Business. Here’s a list: 

  • Resolves an issue that could prevent some VPP purchased apps from launching after being updated.
  • Adds iCloud back support for device-assigned VPP apps.
  • Addresses an issue that could prevent certificates from installing correctly when updating configuration profiles.
  • Fixes an issue for some IPSec VPN configurations that could cause the Internet connection to be interrupted after a VPN session was ended.
  • Fixes an issue to prevent iBook from emailing enterprise managed PDFs from unmanaged accounts.
  • Resolves an issue for some Exchange users that caused Calendar to send multiple responses to the same invitation.
  • Improves reliability for devices connecting to OS X Caching Server.
