The iOS 10.3.2 update is only a few hours old but you can already try out its successor.

Apple’s confirmed a new iOS 10.3.3 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The iOS 10.3.3 update isn’t as exciting as the rumored iOS 11 update but it’s certainly worth monitoring as we push closer to Apple’s announcements at WWDC 2017.

Today we want to rundown the most important things to know right now about the iOS 10.3.3 update. This guide includes a glimpse at the iOS 10.3.3 beta and a few things we expect from the iOS 10.3.3 release date and time.

Let’s start with the most important things to know, right now, about the iOS 10.3.3 beta for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

iOS 10.3.3 Beta

If you want to try out the iOS 10.3.3 update ahead of its official release you can.

Apple’s released an iOS 10.3.3 beta to paid developers. The beta isn’t available to the general public just yet but we expect the beta to land for those in the Beta Software Program.

The company’s Beta Software Program is available to anyone with a working Apple ID.

If decide to try early version of iOS 10.3.3 ahead of its official release date, proceed with caution. Early iOS software can and probably will, cause problems on your device.

In order to combat these problems, we recommend doing some prep work before installing the iOS 10.3.3 beta on your device.

If you do notice issues on your device, you’ll want to report those issues to Apple. This way, the company can improve the final release.

You Can Downgrade from iOS 10.3.3 Beta

If you decide to try the iOS 10.3.3 beta on your device you’ll want to get familiar with the downgrade process.

If you run into problems with the iOS 10.3.3 beta you might want to downgrade to an official version of iOS 10.

Apple is currently signing off on iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 10.3.1 which means you can drop back down to either one of those if your device struggles with the beta on board.

The company will close up the iOS 10.3.1 downgrade path but you’ll always be able to downgrade to iOS 10.3.2.

Once you make the move to iOS 10.3.3 beta there’s no going back to anything older than iOS 10.3.1.

So if you are running iOS 10.2.1, iOS 9, or (god forbid) iOS 8, you should be extremely careful with iOS 10.3.3 beta. For many of you, it probably isn’t worth it.

iOS 10.3.3 Update

One of the reasons iOS 10.3.3 isn’t worth the trouble is because those testing the iOS 10.3.3 beta haven’t discovered anything of note.

The iOS 10.3.3 beta 1 doesn’t appear to have any new features. And based on the version number, iOS 10.x.x, we can assume iOS 10.3.3 (and future betas) will focus on fixing bugs and improving device security.

If we, or beta testers, find anything we’ll update this post.

iOS 10.3.3 Release Date

Apple hasn’t confirmed an iOS 10.3.3 release date so there’s no telling how long the update will stay in the company’s beta program.

Apple only confirms specific iOS release dates on stage during media events but we don’t expect iOS 10.3.3 to play a role at WWDC 2017. Instead, we expect the company to focus on its upcoming iOS 11 update and beta.

It’s impossible to predict a precise release date for iOS 10.3.3 but you can expect the company to release a few more betas before the software pushes out to the general public.

The company’s last maintenance release, iOS 10.3.2, went through a six-week beta process before Apple released it for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

iOS 10.2.1, another recent bug fix update, went through four betas before it arrived for the public.

iOS 10.3.3 Release Time

The iOS 10.3.3 release date might be difficult to predict but the iOS 10.3.3 release time isn’t.

Apple’s iOS 10.3.3 update will almost certainly arrive around 10AM Pacific on release day. You can expect the same from Apple’s iOS 10.3.3 beta releases.

Here’s what that will look like for other regions in the United States and countries around the world including Australia and Japan:

  • Eastern – 1 PM

  • Central – 12 PM

  • Mountain – 11AM

  • London – 6 PM

  • Moscow – 9 PM

  • New Delhi – 10:30 PM

  • Shanghai – 1 AM

  • Tokyo – 2 AM

  • Melbourne – 3 AM

  • Auckland – 5 AM

Apple never releases iOS updates on the weekend and it typically releases new software on Monday and Thursday.
