Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of iOS 9.3.3 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3.3 update to developers and public beta testers, one week after seeding the fourth beta of iOS 9.3.3 and more than a month after the release of iOS 9.3.2, a minor bug fix update. iOS 9.3.3 has been in testing since May 23.

The fifth iOS 9.3.3 beta update can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.

As a minor 9.x.x update, iOS 9.3.3 features under-the-hood bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of iOS 9.3.2. No outward-facing changes or obvious bug fixes were discovered in the first four betas of iOS 9.3.3.

iOS 9.3.3 beta 5 comes following the developer launch of iOS 10, a new version of iOS that will be released to the public this fall, with the second developer beta of iOS 10 having launched just yesterday. iOS 10 includes features like a redesigned Lock screen experience, a revamped Messages app with its own App Store, a Siri SDK for developers, a new Home app for controlling HomeKit devices, a redesigned Apple Music app, and more.

actually apple does a great job of making the last release of any of its operating systems as best as they can - they always have. its important for people who can't upgrade to the next OS - for reasons of hardware or apps not upgradable.

Why so many betas on 9.3.3 release...

Because the iPhone 4s, iPad 2, 3 and iPod Touch 5 will stay on it forever and Apple wants to provide the best experience for those devices.

Why do they even release this, when IOS 10 is right around the corner?

iOS 10 is not til fall and will most likely have its own set of issues due to the redesign that may well take another year to get right. Also some devices will not be supported by iOS 10 so they need the last 9.x.x version to be working as well as it can.

To fix as many bugs as they can for a better user experience when its actually released

I wish we knew what was being fixed during these betas instead of having to wait until they're officially released.

Yeah that would be nice to know.

How does one get the proper profile to do an ota update to this beta?

Did you sign up for public beta on the website? After you do so, it will prompt you to install a certificate and after that you should be able to get OTA updates with no issues.

The inclusion of the Feedback App in Dev Beta 2 certainly makes this more likely than it was. I still think it will be released in the same week as Dev Beta 3.
