Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3.3 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the first beta of iOS 9.3.3 and three weeks after the public release of iOS 9.3.2, a minor bug fix update.

The second iOS 9.3.3 beta 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 appears to focus on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of iOS 9.3.2. No outward-facing changes or obvious bug fixes were found in the first beta of iOS 9.3.3.

There was originally no iOS 9.3.3 update released for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro because Apple needed to fix an iOS 9.3.2 bug that bricked some devices, but it was addressed in a new iOS 9.3.2 update last week. iOS 9.3.3 is now available for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

We'll update this post with any changes that are found in the second iOS 9.3.3 beta.

Lots of jailbreaking rumors with this already, but none proven upon further checking.

I don't JB and doubt that this will go on that much longer. Long time already with none for 9.3.2.
(Excuse is 9.33 coming)

After Apple's brush with the FBI , they'll react faster than ever to plug up any holes.

I don't know if my game still lag when brightness is automatically adjusting. Hope not but I can only keep finger crossed.

With incremental (and possibly hazardous) updates coming down the pipe every month or so, and each update claiming to fix problems created by the previous update... how much confidence does that instill?

Should this be always the case of software developing? New release both introduce new bugs and fix old bugs, and cycle without seeing an end unless code is completely obsolete. Maybe, if the code base is bad enough, then the program will simply collapse and eventually cease working.

I think Apple's software teams misunderstand the term "smoke test". Guys, turn off the Burning Spear, put down the bong, and start testing your code!

Each one is claiming to fix things from the previous one?

When this meme will end.

No, normally updates don't introduce problems, and normally they fix more bugs than they introduce.

The only "problem", is that most people don't have any bugs, no reason to complain, until they find a reason to complain, and claim that "it wasn't like that".

I'm a rolling stone.
I really hope that one day they will fix the display brightness bug on my iPhone 4S, I can't set it to full brightness, sometimes when an App crashes the brightness will be set to full but it will be only temporary.

Edit:Not solved
I actually restored my iPhone yesterday, clean (Set up as new) OS - no problem, but when I sync it's back again.

I eagerly await the ability to test 9.3.3 beta 2. Beta 1 totally hosed the battery life of my iPhone 6 Plus. I have to turn it off to avoid an 80% discharge over night the no usage.

Same here on my 6S Plus..

I had that too, my mail (background) was sucking all the juice, but it might be related to installing a VPN (Me), look into battery usage, it might be the same.

The downloaded file for 9.3.3 for iPad Pro 9.7 Wifi is not working for me. Just me? It was just 234 bytes.

Tat has been the main issue the last couple of years: By the time the next upgrade comes out you are still seeing bug fix updates from the previous. We never see a solid version. :(
Feels like a shampoo product.
Seems like there have been quite a few fairly solid versions for most over the last few years.

They might as well start on a 9.3.4 update already
Because?...

I never install a beta 1, and only a 2 when I think it fixes something I need. Beta 3 is usually stable enough.
