Apple has released iOS 9.3.3 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. The new version was in beta testing for a long time. It has no new noticeable features, except for bug fixes and stability improvements.
How to upgrade iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 9.3.3
There are two ways to upgrade to iOS 9.3.3:
- Go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iOS device to download the new release over the air. You must be connected to a WiFi network
- Connect your iOS device to your computer running iTunes to download and install iOS 9.3.3
- You can also download the iOS 9.3.3 IPSW files from reputable sources. I personally use felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ to download iOS files
Apple has also released the public betas for iOS 10 and macOS 10.12 Sierra and developer betas for watchOS 3 and tvOS 10. Check out our coverage of all things new in iOS 10 beta 2 and watchOS 3 beta 2. Major updates in iOS 10 include the opening up of Messages, Siri, Maps and Phone apps to developers, 3D touch enhanced/redesigned notification center and improved 3D touch support on home screen icons with widgets. Apple Watch gets some much-needed updates with watchOS 3: instant app launch, a dock with quick app access, background app refresh and new watch faces including Minnie Mouse and Numerals. macOS 10.12 gets Siri, Apple Pay, auto-unlock via Apple Watch and copy paste through continuity with iOS 10 devices. Lastly, Apple TV gets a redesigned Apple Music app, dark mode and single sign-on amongst other updates.
