After six betas, Apple has finally released the #iOS 10.3.3 operating system for their iOS devices. The software update focuses mainly on several security fixes as well as visual enhancements. Users with a compatible iOS device can get the free update through over-the-air programming (OTA).

The new software update

The new operating software comes along with some minor yet significant updates for the iPad, iPhone, and the tech company’s ultraportables. The software update may cut down some substantial amount of space for the storage of the device. However, the primary concern of the update is security workarounds, particularly on code execution, such as accessing contacts or playing movie files.

For the iPad 12.9-inch model, several wallpapers were added alongside the security fixes.

One of the probable reasons why the Cupertino based tech giant delayed the release of the iOS 10.3.3 is that this could be the final update for both the iPhone 5 smartphone and the iOS 10. According to Mac Rumors, Apple made it sure that the new software is secured for any vulnerabilities in the future.

Aside from the new iOS software, the watchOS 3.2.3 and the tvOS 10.2.2 will likely be the last firmware updates prior to the release of watchOS 4, tvOS 11 and the much-awaited iOS 11 - which are slated to roll out in September. Nonetheless, as reported by iLounge, the tech giant might roll out one or two more iOS 10 patches for 32-bit devices that won’t be capable of running the upcoming mobile operating system.

Nevertheless, iOS device users can still encounter bugs even after upgrading to the new software. Bugs such as the notification center glitch and the frozen screen are still evident. The so-called shutter bug is still expected to exist, however, these bugs are bearable to most iOS device users.

iOS 11 features

As the iOS 10.3.3 operating system is available, the highly anticipated #iOS 11 is believed to come along with features that focuses on the productivity of the device. The much awaited iOS 11 will allow iPads to tweak Control Center, provide more app icons on its dock and a new App Switcher interface.

iOS 11 will allow users to send and receive money through their Touch ID. With iOS 11, the NFC chip in the iPhone will have more capabilities. The firmware will bring changes to the File System, Control Center, Photos app and Notification System. The update will also boost the intelligent personal assistant, Siri, and will allow iOS device users to drag and drop content from one application to another.
