Apple Seeds Sixth Beta of iOS 10.3.3 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

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

Registered developers can download iOS 10.3.3 beta 6 from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed. Public beta testers can also download the beta over-the-air after installing the configuration profile.


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

iOS 10.3.3 is likely to be one of the last updates to the iOS 10 operating system, as Apple has shifted 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 so far.

I wonder why there’s so many betas for what seems to be such a minor release.

I saw the word beta on Twitter had hoped it was for iOS 11!


It's likely the last iOS 10 update, and therefore the last update that 32-bit iDevices will receive. Has to be as close to perfect as possible.

Because its maybe the last iOS for a few devices. e.g. iPhone5 iPhone5c iPads etc.

What do you mean? That went very well.

* iOS 10.3 through 10.3.2 use the problematic version of APFS that is case-sensitive, normalization-preserving, and normalization-sensitive. You can write a lot of app code ('https://mjtsai.com/blog/2017/03/24/apfss-bag-of-bytes-filenames/') to make everything work, but anyone who hasn’t done this already probably won’t.


* iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11 will also be case-sensitive, normalization-preserving, and normalization-sensitive, but they will add runtime normalization. If you try to read a file but don’t have the right normalization in your path, the file system APIs will transparently look for the file using other normalizations. This should give the correct behavior but at a performance cost.


* If you get a new device or erase and restore, iOS 11 will use case-sensitive APFS with native normalization. This is what Apple should have done from the start. It should have basically the same user experience as with HFS+ but with better performance.
