Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 10.3.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 10.3.3 update to developers, one day after releasing iOS 10.3.2, a minor bug fix update that introduced minor bug fixes and a long list of security updates.

Registered developers can download the first iOS 10.3.3 beta from Apple’s Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile is installed.

We don’t yet know what’s included in iOS 10.3.3, but with a 10.x.x version number, it’s likely to be another minor update that focuses on bug fixes and security improvements rather than outward-facing changes. If anything notable is found in the beta, we’ll update this post.

iOS 10.3.3 may be one of the last updates we see to iOS 10, as Apple is starting to shift focus to iOS 11. iOS 11 will be introduced at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, which kicks off on June 5. The update will be in testing for several months before seeing a fall public release.

jeez apple get in right already how many more updates until ios11
Security updates and bug fixes are no good now? I'd MUCH rather have this route then the old "here's iOS X, then 3 months later X.1 and that's it". I love that they are putting out routine updates and betas for those updates.

Leaving the iPhone 5 as polished as it can be before its dead.
In all fairness, the iPhone 5 turns 5 this year. Very excellent lifespan in terms of updates for a mobile device. There are phones running "other" operating systems that get 18-24 months MAX.

I've done this before, but I always do a DFU restore when installing major iOS updates (be it GM -> Beta, Beta -> GM, Beta -> Beta or GM -> GM)
I always read DFU as "don't eff up". Maybe it's appropriate to the way you use it!

Probably just doing their best to leave EOL devices with a solid OS. A good thing if you ask me.

So we are here: iOS 10.3.3. Likely last wave before iOS 11 going out first beta.
