Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of iOS 10.3.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming iOS 10.3.3 update to developers, one week after seeding the fourth beta and over a month after the release of iOS 10.3.2, which was a minor bug fix update.

Registered developers can download the fifth iOS 10.3.3 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.

iOS 10
There were no significant features or notable bug fixes found in the first four iOS 10.3.3 betas, suggesting iOS 10.3.3 is an update that's minor in scale, focusing primarily on security updates and bug fixes.

iOS 10.3.3 will likely be one of the last updates to the iOS 10 operating system as Apple shifts development to iOS 11. The first beta of iOS 11 was released to developers on June 5 following Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, and two betas have been seeded thus far.

Update: A public beta is also available.

Omg enough with this 5 betas wow for a point point release with zero changes how many betas does this really need lol
I really doubt that Apple would go through the effort of releasing a point release of iOS, let alone go through five or more beta releases, if they made zero changes ;)

Remember! The absence of visible changes doesn't mean there are no changes. What's on the surface is only a small part of an operating system, or any software for that matter.

Cos to be fair its such a small update and to go into testing for so long isnt needed they can just release it and if need to be bring another update its been ages in testing and theres zero changes no speed jumpnor features for bug fixes doesnt need 5 betas
You know you can just scroll past a topic that does not seem interesting to you, right?

Apple knows what they are doing and I appreciate them working every last detail to death, before releasing an upgrade. Ask anyone that went through the "Slide To Upgrade" debacle, it wasn't on my phone, but my mother-in-laws and to this day she still claims certain things just are not right.

Well it's hard to gauge the magnitude of the update since we don't have any release notes. Even if it has no new features, there could be some difficult-to-resolve bugs that require a lot of testing. Or maybe they patched some complex vulnerabilities which require many rounds of hacking to make sure the security issues are fully resolved. Let them test and test. I'd rather have a stable/security hardened OS experience for a device that is so critical such as my phone.
