Apple has seeded developers with the first build of iOS 9.3.3 for testing purposes. The build number of the new software is 13G12 compared to 13F69 on iOS 9.3.2 and weighs around 1.4GB.
It’s unclear whether this update will fix the recent issues 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners have been experiencing. Error 56 is the culprit here, which causes user’s iPads to require a connection to iTunes while upgrading to the latest version of iOS, however when performed doesn’t do anything. As Neowin reports, a downloadable package of iOS 9.3.3 for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro isn’t even available from Apple’s developer website. This could be hinting that either a) this update isn’t the fix for this tablet or b) the first beta of 9.3.3 isn’t ready yet to be loaded onto a 9.7-inch Pro. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see what Apple’s next move is.
As of now, here’s the release notes for iOS 9.3.3:
This beta version of iOS 9.3.3 contains bug fixes and improvements.
As you can see, there’s really nothing notably different about this new build, so don’t look around for new features as this is probably the last update for iOS 9 before iOS 10 is announced at WWDC next month.
We’ll let you know when the public beta of iOS 9.3.3 is available.
