After the massive reception to the recently held Worldwide Developers Conference 2017, Apple has reportedly been entirely focused in polishing its upcoming iOS 11. Aside from this, the tech titan has made sure that its current public software offering is not left behind. This has been proven when the iOS 10.3.3 developers and public builds are made available for downloads.

Moreover, the developers' build has already received its update days earlier while the 3 public build has just been seeded to Public Beta 3. The update promises to focus more on bug fixes.

This great news will surely hype up beta users and, below, is a quick guide to help them get Apple’s Public Beta 3 OS.


Before we proceed, note that the steps below assume that the previous beta build has already been installed on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac. In any case that the said built has not been updated, copy this link to your browser for the instructions:

How to update

First, ready the connection (e.g. WiFi networks) and make sure a power outlet is on the sidelines for unexpected battery interruptions. Secondly, launch the Settings app and navigate to General setting and choose Software Update.

Wait for the Public Beta 3 to become available. As soon as it's done, tap on Download and, then, Install.

The update is done.

iOS 10.3.3 beta has already proven its stability in terms of safety to devices. Therefore, it is totally fine to take a try. Moreover, the aforementioned software has been in beta for the longest time, so it is recommended to wait for Apple’s final release. However, whether to update or not, depends solely on the decision the iOS-powered device's owner.

Developers’ third beta

Last June 13, Apple has seeded the third beta of the latest update coming to iOS 10.3.3. The developers' build was made just two weeks after seeding the second beta and a month after the release of iOS 10.3.2 which brought in only minor bug fix update. Registered developers can download the said beta via the Apple Developer Center or through the over-the-air updating which requires proper configuration profile installed.

According to MacRumors, there have been no significant features or notable bug fixes found in the first beta updates. This suggests that the first two betas are updates that are essentially minor in scale. Meanwhile, the third installment in the series of updates is expected to introduce security improvements and bug fixes.
