Apple today released the first beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3.3 update for public beta testers, one day after seeding the first iOS 9.3.3 beta to developers. iOS 9.3.3 comes one week after the release of iOS 9.3.2, an update focusing primarily on bug fixes.

Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 9.3.3 update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on their iOS device.

Those who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and OS X betas.


As another minor 9.x.x update, iOS 9.3.3 appears to include mainly under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements to address issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 9.3.2. iOS 9.3.3 is not yet available for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro due to an iOS 9.3.2 issue that has caused some 9.7-inch iPad Pro devices to be bricked.

No outward-facing changes or immediately apparent bug fixes were discovered in the first developer beta of iOS 9.3.3.

Uh oh...
But 9.3.4 will fix the problems introduced by 9.3.3 and 9.3.5 will fix the problems introduced by 9.3.4 etc etc etc.....
There's probably something there (or at least will be there) for the iPad Pro fix (unless they re-issue an updated iOS 9.3.2) build, but it doesn't mean that for the most part it's there to fix things that were introduced in the last update as much as just more fixes for things that were around even before that.

Did anyone else get the OTA update w/o having the certificate installed? I deleted my certificate (and yes I rebooted) after 9.3.2 was officially dropped and late last night, settings showed an available update. For grins, I went ahead and installed [9.3.3 Beta 1] thinking it may crap out during the verification stage but it installed just fine. My phone's UDID is listed as a test device so perhaps Apple is now pushing the updates to all UDID-registered devices..?
