After more than a month of beta testing, Apple is now rolling out iOS 9.3.2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update brings a bunch of big bug fixes, and the ability to use Night Shift while Low Power Mode is activated.

Apple has seeded four iOS 9.3.2 betas since the first one was made available for testing in early April, so if you’re a registered developer or public tester, you’re probably already familiar with all the changes. But if you’re not, there’s a lot to look forward to.

With this update, Apple finally fixes a dreaded Game Center bug that has been plaguing some users for well over a year. It wasn’t just making the Game Center app unusable; it was completely freezing iOS devices, forcing them to be restarted.

Apple has also made it possible to use Night Shift mode while Low Power Mode is active, so your iPhone is a little kinder to your eyes late at night.

Here are the rest of the changes:

  • Fixes an issue where some Bluetooth accessories could experience audio-quality issues when paired to iPhone SE
  • Fixes an issue where looking up dictionary definitions could fail
  • Addresses an issue that prevented typing email addresses when using Japanese Kana keyboard in Mail and Messages
  • Fixes an issue for VoiceOver users using the Alex voice, where the device switches to a different voice to announce punctuation or spaces
  • Fixes an issue that prevented MDM servers from installing custom B2B apps

To get your hands on this update, simply open up the Settings app, tap “General,” than tap “Software Update.”
