Apple has finally released the over-the-air version of iOS 9.3.3 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users less than two weeks after it released the final beta version of the same. The update is largely a bug fix and performance improvement one with no new features to get excited about.
The iOS 9.3.3 update has been in testing since May 23, with a total of five betas being released to developers and public beta testers ahead of the latest public release of the software. The latest update is an OTA one and should pop through a notification. Those who do not get the auto update can download it through iTunes.
The latest update does not have any new features added expect for some under the hood performance improvements and bug fixes. The company has, however, detailed a list of security related issues it has patched in the update that can be seen in detail here.
The decision to not introduce any new features in the latest update stems from the fact that Apple just recently announced the iOS 10 developer version for which its third beta has just been released. Given the final OTA version for the iOS 10 will be unveiled in September, Apple does not want to introduce any new features at this point under the iOS 9 OS.
The iOS 9 OS was unveiled by Apple in 2105 and since then a ton of updates have rolled out under its hood. The iOS 9.3.3 is in fact the ninth update to the iOS 9 OS eco-system following iOS 9.0.1, iOS 9.0.2, iOS 9.1, iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3, iOS 9.3.1, and iOS 9.3.2.
