It’s a day of muchos updates for OS X and iOS users.

On Wednesday, Apple released version 8.3 of its iOS operating system.

The new version, a 487 megabyte download, contains a massive helping of fixes and changes. Among them are more than 300 new emoji symbols, a scrolling keyboard, additional languages for Siri and improvements to unknown number filters in iMessage.

As usual, the upgraded OS is available as an over-the-air update by going to Settings > General > Software Update on your iOS device. Users can also connect their iOS device to a Mac or Windows PC and download and install the update from there.

The update contains a fairly massive changelog, which also cites Wi-Fi improvements, so take a gander if you’re interested in the specific improvements.

iOS 8.3 requires an iPhone 4s or later, iPad 2 or later, iPad mini or later or iPod touch 5th generation or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried the iOS 8.3 update and have any feedback to offer, please let us know about your experience in the comments.
