iOS 10.3.3 Download Now Available: Bug Fixes And Security Patches

The iOS 10.3.3 download is now available for compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices after several beta versions of it. Given that Apple is devoting much of its attention to preparing iOS 11 and probably the iPhone 8 7s and 7s Plus for launch, it should come as no surprise that iOS 10.3.3 is mostly bug fixes and security patches. As a result, it’s a good idea to grab the iOS 10.3.3 download as soon as you’re on a stable Wi-Fi network and have the time to update your device (unless, of course, your device is jailbroken).

How to get the iOS 10.3.3 download

It seems likely that iOS 10.3.3 will be the last version of iOS 10 before Apple pushes out iOS 11 to the general public this fall. Apple itself says in the release notes about it that the iOS 10.3.3 download “includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.” There isn’t anything else to the release notes. iOS 10.3 didn’t really bring any big new features to Apple’s mobile operating system, so we should expect even less from a release tagged as the third version of iOS 10.3.

To download iOS 10.3.3 now, all you have to do is go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, just as you would have done with previous iOS releases. Then scroll down and tap “Download and Install.” Or if you prefer, you can also use a USB cable to connect your device to your computer and download the update that way via iTunes.

In conjunction with iOS 10.3.3, Apple also released minor updates for its other three main operating systems, watchOS, tvOS and macOS.

Looking out to iOS 11

Those who are too excited for iOS 11 can also download and try out the public beta of it, although it’s best that you don’t use your main device to do this. Apple recommends installing it on a secondary device, given that it’s not a stable release yet. When the company pushes iOS 11 out to everyone, you’ll know that the company has made it stable and ready for the average user and not a beta tester who’s accustomed to dealing with unstable operating systems.

One of the most-anticipated new features coming with iOS 11 is augmented reality via Apple’s new ARKit software development kit. Other popular features include a new filesystem and updates to Apple Maps.
