If you’re an Apple user or just a tech news enthusiast in general, then you know that the fall launch of iOS 11 has been announced at the Worldwide Developer Conference more than a month ago, on June 5, 2017 in San Jose, California.
However, in the meantime Apple is still updating iOS 10, and now the operating system reached version 10.3.3. The new iOS 10.3.3 was released this Wednesday and tech sites were quick to dissect what it brought new.
Unfortunately, not much has changed, at least not visibly. Forbes has even gone as far as to say that the only thing that iOS 10.3.3 brought new were the wallpapers for the iPad Pro 12.9-inch.
However, that is only at surface level, and what lies beyond are a lot of performance-related enhancements, as well as bug fixes and security patches. Still, it’s true that iOS 10.3.3 isn’t that surprising or impressive. But seeing that we’ve got just a few months to go until iOS 11 is launched, we didn’t expect it to be.
As far as this update goes, depending on the mobile carrier you have, it will weigh in at between 80 and 100MB in size, so it’s quite small as you can see.
The update to iOS 10.3.3 is available for iPhones 5 and newer, iPads fourth generation and newer and sixth generation iPods. If you own any device that fits into these categories, you can search for the update in your device’s settings and install it manually right now.
In the meantime, developers can already test out iOS 11 and contribute to the stabilization of the future final version of the operating system.
And if you’re not a developer, you can still join the public beta testing program that Apple has, but you will have more restricted access.
