Apple seeds beta 4 of iOS 9.3.3, tvOS 9.2.2, and OS X 10.11.6

apple public beta

Apple on Wednesday seeded the fourth beta for iOS 9.3.3 to both developers and public testers. The beta can be installed via the over-the-air update mechanism in iOS, or it can be downloaded from either Apple’s dev center or the Beta Software Program website.

The update comes just one week after the third iOS 9.3.3 beta was released, suggesting that it may soon be ready for public launch. Don’t get too excited though. It’s mostly bug fixes, as Apple tries to tie up a few loose ends and turn its full attention to iOS 10.

In addition to iOS, Apple also seeded new betas for tvOS and OS X on Tuesday. The betas are available to registered developers and testers, and can be installed via OTA in tvOS, for those with the latest beta profile, and the Update tab in the Mac App Store.

OS X 10.11.6 and tvOS 9.2.2 are also minor updates, featuring mostly bug fixes and improvements. Again it seems like Apple is just looking to tighten things up as it moves on to the next versions. macOS Sierra and tvOS 10 are expected to land later this year.

    Do you guys just copy and paste from preview articles? The first sentence is about the previous beta release, not this one.

  • No new iOS10 beta?

    • Still waiting, don’t know whats going on. Looks like for me that apple may be waiting for the public beta instead.

      Honestly, I’d just like some third party apps updated to be compatible with iOS 10. The beta has been pretty good (some minor bugs) but some apps (Bank of America) won’t even open.

    Well they need to hurry up because I’ve been experiencing keyboard errors and forced reloads for a long while now

      I hated this shit that’s why I went back 9.3.2

      • Sailor_V90

        I tried to downgrade but they stop singing iOS 9.3.1, that or I am doing it wrong.

      • :D

        Try it with 9.3.2

      • Sailor_V90

        Is there more than one version?

    • James G

      This is why you don’t use a beta with your daily phone.

      • Sailor_V90

        As I have stated above, I am on iOS 9.3.2 (13F69), which is not a Beta.

    since iOS 10 beta 1 is out, it’s not possible to install ota beta for iOS 9.3.3.

    • leart


      • so you are doing sama Downgrade from iOS 10 Beta 1 Dev, into iOS 9.3.3 Beta 4 Public?


      • leart

        no, just installed 9.3.3 beta 4, downloaded the full ipsw from apple dev center..

      • leart

        I have access to a developer account..

    It is hilarious and quite silly when people install beta software and start complaining of bugs… especially those that have installed ios 10 beta or any other beta.
    It is called BETA for a reason which means you must be ready to live with the bugs without seeming stupid or ignorant…..

    • Vista

      even devs are complaining… it’s getting quite stupid that apple has released 4 betas of a 9.x.x update instead of updating their buggy ios 10 beta which hasnt even seen an update yet.

      • DT

        So you’re complaining that Apple is more focused on a current operating system rather than one that is being released 3 months from now?

    And the stalling continues, Apple’s afraid that the jailbreak for ios 9.3.2 or 9.3.3, will be released. They can stall all they want but if we don’t update to ios 10, we can still wait for the ios 9 jailbreak. I already had all those tweaks that they are just now implementing, all on Cydia.

  • Eli Montoya

    Someone explain why there is a beta for 9.3.3 and iOS 10.

    • Chris

      iOS 10 is only in developer preview, it doesn’t hit public beta until July.

    I can’t stand when people complain about beta software. “My keyboard is messed up.” Or, “My battery is draining so fast.” It’s a beta software that’s not even supposed to be used by people who aren’t developers. I know there are public betas, but if you are just going to complain about a none GM/official software, then you have no business being on beta software.
