Now that we’re on the sixth iOS 10.3.3 beta, an iOS 10.3.3 release for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch should be right around the corner.
Apple’s iOS 10.3.3 update isn’t a milestone upgrade like iOS 10.3 but it should still be an important release for those dealing with bugs. It should also be a key update for those of you concerned with your device’s security. Maintenance updates typically deliver security patches.
The next iOS 10 release isn’t as exciting as some of its predecessors but we continue to get questions about its features and its release date. Many iPhone and iPad users, particularly users struggling with iOS 10 problems, want to know when iOS 10.3.3 will roll out.
Apple still hasn’t confirmed a specific iOS 10.3.3 release date nor has it confirmed the exact contents of its next iOS 10 update. That said, we can make some educated guesses about the iOS 10.3.3 update, its release date, its release time, its jailbreak, and more.
While some parts of the iOS 10.3.3 update’s release are difficult to predict, we’re able to fill in some gaps using Apple’s iOS release protocol and the iOS 10.3.3 beta.
Today we want to take you through our iOS 10.3.3 expectations. These will will help average users, people new to iOS, and those that haven’t followed the iOS 10.3.3 update’s progress set realistic expectations for what will almost certainly be one of Apple’s last iOS 10 updates.
iOS 10.3.3 Release Date
Apple rarely announces iOS release dates ahead of time so its silence regarding the iOS 10.3.3 release date isn't surprising. It's expected.
It's difficult to predict an exact iOS 10.3.3 release date but we don't expect Apple to sit on this update for too much longer.
We're currently on the sixth iOS 10.3.3 beta which means the update is making progress in testing behind the scenes.
The sixth beta appears to be the iOS 10.3.3 GM which means Apple's final release could arrive any day now. Unless Apple finds a critical bug, we expect the update to emerge sometime before the end of July so keep an eye out for it this week and next.
We also expect iOS 10.3.3 to be one of (if not the last) iOS 10 updates. If you own an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c or iPad 4, support for your device will end soon.
