iOS 9.3.3 Release & Time: 5 Things to Expect & 4 Not To

An iOS 9.3.3 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is imminent and today we want to take you through a few things you can expect from the iOS 9.3.3 release date, release time, and more as we push closer to release.

Apple’s been pretty busy in the weeks since the iOS 9.3 release in March.

First, it released an iOS 9.3.1 update, a small bug fixer aimed fixing a major problem users discovered almost immediately after installing iOS 9.3. More recently, the company rolled out an iOS 9.3.2 update to iOS 9 users.

iOS 9.3.2 is the current version of iOS 9 and it brings bug fixes and patches to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It’s also brought problems to many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.

Update: The iOS 9.3.3 update is out but it’s not showing up as an OTA update on our devices. We were, however, able to download and install it via iTunes. Try iTunes if it doesn’t show up in Settings.

In late May, Apple issued an iOS 9.3.3 beta to developers and the general public confirming the next update for iOS 9 users.

The iOS 9.3.3 update may be confirmed but Apple’s neglected to outline some of the key release details including the release date, the official change log and more.

While we wait for the iOS 9.3.3 update to arrive, we want to help fill in some of the blanks for you. These are our iOS 9.3.3 release expectations.

This roundup takes a look at the iOS 9.3.3 update itself, the iOS 9.3.3 release date, the release time, and more.

Our goal here is to help you set realistic expectations about the iOS 9.3.3 update and its release ahead of its arrival.

Expect This From the iOS 9.3.3 Release Date

Expect This From the iOS 9.3.3 Release Date

If you're dealing with problems on iOS 9.3.2 (or below) you're probably wondering when Apple's next bug fix update will hit. Unfortunately, Apple's not saying and there's a good chance the company will keep you in the dark about the precise iOS 9.3.3 release date.

Apple typically announces iOS release dates on stage during its media events. It doesn't put up blog posts with details and it doesn't put out a blast on Twitter. And with no media events scheduled for July, there's a good chance we'll found out about the iOS 9.3.3 release date on the release date itself. 

The iOS 9.3.3 release date could land today, it could land tomorrow. One thing it won't do though is land on Saturday or Sunday. Apple never releases its updates on the weekend.

Now that the iOS 9.3.3 betas for developers and the public have aligned (Apple recently released the iOS 9.3.3 beta 5 for developers and the public at the same time), we'd expect a release to come soon. Maybe even next week.

We'd be surprised if the release fell outside of the month of July. After five betas, we should be close to a public iOS 9.3.3 release date.
