    Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3.3 update to developers and public beta testers, one week after seeding the fourth beta of iOS 9.3.3 and more than a month after the release of iOS 9.3.2, a minor bug fix update. iOS 9.3.3 has been in testing since May 23.

    The fifth iOS 9.3.3 beta update can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.

    As a minor 9.x.x update, iOS 9.3.3 features under-the-hood bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of iOS 9.3.2. No outward-facing changes or obvious bug fixes were discovered in the first four betas of iOS 9.3.3.

    iOS 9.3.3 beta 5 comes following the developer launch of iOS 10, a new version of iOS that will be released to the public this fall, with the second developer beta of iOS 10 having launched just yesterday. iOS 10 includes features like a redesigned Lock screen experience, a revamped Messages app with its own App Store, a Siri SDK for developers, a new Home app for controlling HomeKit devices, a redesigned Apple Music app, and more.

    I hope that the iOS 10 Public Beta is released soon.

    Awwww, no way. Was hoping iOS 10 public beta would be released today. iOS 9 is tired.

    The inclusion of the Feedback App in Dev Beta 2 certainly makes this more likely than it was. I still think it will be released in the same week as Dev Beta 3.

    Why do they even release this, when IOS 10 is right around the corner?

    I wish we knew what was being fixed during these betas instead of having to wait until they're officially released.

    I saw that the Feedback app was included yesterday, and think that means the public beta will be released this week.

    When was the Feedback app introduced in the iOS 9 beta for developers last year?

    iOS 10 is not til fall and will most likely have its own set of issues due to the redesign that may well take another year to get right. Also some devices will not be supported by iOS 10 so they need the last 9.x.x version to be working as well as it can.

    To fix as many bugs as they can for a better user experience when its actually released

    Yeah that would be nice to know.

    actually apple does a great job of making the last release of any of its operating systems as best as they can - they always have. its important for people who can't upgrade to the next OS - for reasons of hardware or apps not upgradable.

    See post 9 above. Apple stated in July so sometime in the next few weeks. I predict the 20th or 21st.

    I deleted the beta profile because it had expired and now can't reinstall because it won't download from the beta profile website (presumably because this is still out of date).

    Any ideas how I can download and install? Beta download doesn't show..

    Did you sign up for public beta on the website? After you do so, it will prompt you to install a certificate and after that you should be able to get OTA updates with no issues.

    go to https://beta.apple.com and enroll your device then download the profile. The new profile expires May 2019.

    Interesting the expired profile let this beta install as well.

    Because the iPhone 4s, iPad 2, 3 and iPod Touch 5 will stay on it forever and Apple wants to provide the best experience for those devices.

    Last beta yielded the best battery consumption to date for iOS9. I hope it continues in this one.
