3 Reasons to Install iOS 9.3.3 Beta & 4 Reasons You Shouldn’t

Apple’s latest iOS 9.3 beta is here and it’s a tempting upgrade for many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. While there are certainly some reasons to give it a go, there are also some reasons to avoid the iOS 9.3.3 beta for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

In May, Apple released an iOS 9.3.2 update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It’s an important update but it won’t be Apple’s last iOS 9 update.

We know this because Apple’s already confirmed its next iOS 9 update ahead of its WWDC 2016 developer conference in mid-June.
iOS-9.3-Release-Date

The iOS 9.3.3 update is confirmed thanks to a beta release for developers and the general public. It’s currently available for paid developers and anyone with an Apple ID through Apple’s Beta Software Program.

The iOS 9.3.3 update is a small bug fix upgrade that’s focused on under-the-hood improvements to Apple’s mobile operating system. And while most people will want to wait for the public release, others might be tempted to install the early version of the update right now

Installing the iOS 9.3.3 beta has its benefits but there are also some downsides to early software and we want to address those here.

If you’re on the fence about whether or not to install the iOS 9.3.3 beta on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, take a look at this list of reasons. It should help nudge you to one side of the fence or the other.

Install It If You Want to Improve the iOS 9.3.3 Release

Install It If You Want to Improve the iOS 9.3.3 Release

If you want to help Apple improve the final release of iOS 9.3.3, you might want to think about installing the iOS 9.3.3 beta ahead of the public release date.

The iOS 9.3.3 beta allows developers and public beta testers to send feedback to Apple about potential bugs and issues.

We're already seeing those testing the iOS 9.3.3 beta publish feedback about the update and that feedback, if passed along to Apple, will help the company improve the final version of iOS 9.3.3. 

If you're tired of dealing with bugs and problems every time you download a new iOS update, you should think about helping Apple out.

You might seem like a small fish but who knows, your bug reporting could help Apple squash a huge bug or two ahead of the public release date.

    MY APPLE IPHONE 5, COMES ALIVE THE INSTANT I PLUG A CHARGER INTO IT. EVEN IF IT IS LINKED TO A CHARGER AND ALSO THROUGH AN EXTENSION CABLE OF MY HOME, A SUDDEN SURGE OF ELECTRICITY ZOOMS THE IPHONE INTO LIFE, DESPITE ‘IT’ BEING OFF! STRANGE.

    i have popped up to apple shop, kingston surrey uk to have a look around and a lil learning, as the iphone5 is mine as a second user purchase, and no user manual. THE OS I’m running, I’m not too sure about. i will have to look. learn how to have a look. cheers for a wonderful life enhancing product.

    Hey Barbara that thing your best friends half sister is doing sounds really cool! However I’m unsure of how true it could be, considering she’s sat there making 16 grand a month and you’re running around telling everyone about it. Why don’t you just do it for yourself and let her brag about it? Oh I’ve just clicked the link to the fake site you’re advertising and I get it now! Silly me

    I need help. I updated to the IOS 9.3 on my IPhone 4S which my son originally got for me when he got his 4S, but now I can’t get into my phone. It says to put in Apple ID & passcode but when I do, they want the original ID & passcode when my son first got the 4S phones. He even forgot them. I’ve since changed it to my own ID & passcode, but still cannot get in. HELP

    Same problem here. Very very frustrating because Apple can’t seem to fix this – so basically my phone is worthless since I can’t get into it at all.

    I upgraded to IOS 9.3 and immediately my text message history disappeared. Now it works during the day but when I switch the phone off completely it erases the day’s history too. It is VERY irritating – anyone have a bug fix for this? Apple seem unconcerned as usual…
    I have a new iPhone SE which I bought hoping it would solve the problem but it is the same..

      I don’t see how your phone is able to run on iOS 9.3 the iphone SE only has access to iOS 9.3.2 and above

      you should go in the battery settings and check. whatever is on the top is what’s using most of it. what phone is it? if you have a Battery case, it could be draining it faster.

      This is not talking about ios 9.3, this article is unrelated to iOS 9.3. This is talking about test software that is not available to the general public yet. iOS 9.3 is highly stable and I would highly recommend upgrading as you will be vulnerable to viruses due to not having the latest security patches.

        it is available to everyone through the Public Beta of iOS 9.3.3, I wouldn’t advise going ahead with it though as my battery is awful, I’m charging my phone 4 times a day and now have to go through the process of downgrading it back to 9.3.2 again.

    I’ve been having the same issue for several days. iPhone 6S+ and my iphone 6 are both giving the same error that safari can’t install the profile. Neither device has been part of beta before.
