    It seems likely, although quite possibly not.

    I think there may be one more but no beta for it

    Maybe 9.3.3 to fix that error after upgrading on ipads

    Nah, I doubt it. Last year 8.4 was released after the announcement of iOS 9 because of Apple Music, which was an exception.

    9.3.2 will be the last unless a critical bug fix is needed. So we might see a 9.3.3 for iPad Pro issues. or a re-release of 9.3.2 like they did with 9.2.1.

    Fact is this? Good guess.

    I hope Apple could release iOS 9.4 or so to fix auto brightness bug. Very annoying when playing games.

    I think that 9.3.3 will be needed for 2 reasons (both affecting iPad 9.7 Pro users):

    1) fix the error 56 resulting in a bricked iPad during update to 9.3.2

    2) fix the springboard/multitasking crash (bug 298) which is not related to 9.3.2 but has affected 9.7 Pro users from the outset.

    I don't know why but I think there could be iOS X next year and they keep going on with iOS 9 and if not there will be for sure at least a 9.4 if not even more until the official release of iOS 10 or whatever it will be called.

    Maybe there won't even be an iPhone 7 this year and they will release it sometime between March and June 2017 because of the SE released on March 31 and the release of the first iPhone on June 29 ten years before.

    Edit: And because they have not enough new Hardware features ready for a major iPhone release this year.

    My guess is iOS 9 will receive another point update. The next iOS will not be out until fall. We will see developer beta of the next version soon but the public release will be timed with the next phone much later in the year. I'm sure there will be some security discovery need to cover. I don't think we will see additional new features but another update will release. My guess.

    I would be utterly astonished if Apple didn't release the iPhone 7 and a new version of iOS in the fall. Their shareholders might be none too happy also. Given the veritable avalanche of information, precedent and user/investor expectations that points to this, have you seen anything concrete that would make us think otherwise?

    Also, the release of the SE does nothing whatsoever to mitigate the case for bringing out a major iPhone upgrade at the usual time of year. The fact that the original iPhone was released in June even less so. Honestly, why should shareholders, who care deeply about how upgrade cycles drive sales, be willing to put back the new iPhone release another year for such reasons?

    I hope Apple fixes the auto-brightness bug and gets games to run like they did in 9.2.

    Yes, the SE is not a real factor. It could be only a one-time release or they keep it as third size and the next one will be released among the other two sizes in fall or only every two years in spring. Who knows...

    It's just a feeling that something might change compared to the years before because there are much more rumors for the 2017 iPhone with real hardware and design changes and that 2017 is the tenth anniversary year of the iPhone.

    They could also delay it just a few month (maybe just until January) or have very much kept very secret and the big changes are already finished for the standard fall release.

    The only rumors I heard about a new iPhone this fall were: the headphone jack will be removed, later that it won't be removed. And something about a double camera lens only in the Plus or maybe an additional Pro version and later a larger+thinner(non-protruding) camera lens for the other sizes or just all of them.

    Then there is of course like every year a slightly better battery, faster flash storage (maybe up to 256 GB) and a faster next generation CPU/GPU (A10) and the screen resolution might be higher.

    More RAM seems very unlikely.

    Thinner than it already is doesn't make any sense because the 4.7-inch is already too thin to hold it without a case.

    The other changes are not very much. Who needs just a faster 6S and a better camera beside the people that don't already have one of last years phones? A higher resolution on a max. 5.5-inch display does also not make much sense. The RAM is finally enough since last year too.

    BUT who knows... If iOS 10 has so many new and/or better features that it needs just more speed to work good, people of course will buy such a phone even without any major changes and the same design.

    The betas of iOS 10 will be released at WWDC next month.

    Delaying till January for the iPhone 7 would make no sense - they'd be giving up the entire xmas shopping season and Q4 is by far the largest in terms of sales for Apple and most other tech vendors.

    Really, because my games still stutter, plus, now I have stutter in an older game that was perfect in 9.3.1, so please tell me how this was fixed.

    There's a small possibility that we might see iOS 9.4 beta or iOS 9.3.3 beta, maybe.

    That's unusual. I experienced this problem with auto-brightness lagging in one of the 9.3.2 betas, then it was fixed in a later beta. I haven't seen it since.

    Can you name a game with the issue so I can try it? I'm curious.

    The game that has never stuttered for me (even on 9.3.1) is flappy bird (yes the original, not a knock off) and the game that used to run 100% flawlessly on 9.2, but was messed up in 9.3 and on is Zig Zag. Yes, I like endless running/flapping games... Don't judge.

    However, there are games I got after 9.3 came out, so I'm not sure how they performed under 9.2.

    Its a highly educated guess based on past years. The only reason why we saw an 8.4.0/.1 was because of Apple Music and there were rumors of it leading up to WWDC. We have no rumors of any new features in development before WWDC and the introduction of iOS 10. Most years don't even get to a X.3 release, let alone a X.3.x release. I am willing to bet besides a potential 9.3.3, thats it for iOS 9.

    "small possibility," "might," "maybe."

    About as realistic as it gets.
