Update to iOS 10.3.3 starts rolling out today


Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and Apple iPod touch users today are starting to receive the update to iOS 10.3.3. Mostly made up of bug fixes and security enhancements, this could very well be the last build of iOS 10 to be offered before the launch of iOS 11. The latter could see the light of day in September, possibly at the same time that the 2017 iPhone models are launched. Of course, there have been rumors about a delay in the launch of the Apple iPhone 7s, Apple iPhone 7s Plus and the Apple iPhone 8. If you're anxiously awaiting iOS 11, you might want to check in often for the latest information pertaining to the release of these three phones.

The changes that come with the update include a Find My AirPods feature. If you constantly find your AirPods falling out of your ears, you should feel a little better knowing that with this feature, you should be able to discover where your lost or stolen wireless Bluetooth earphones have gone to. The iOS 10.3.3 update includes new app transition animations, and a new Podcasts widget.

To update to iOS 10.3.3 OTA, simply take your iPhone, iPad or iPod to Settings > General > Software Update. You can also update via iTunes by connecting your iOS device to your PC or Mac. The update weighs in at 84.6MB.

Even more exciting to many are the public beta versions of iOS 11 that are now available for those who have signed up to receive them. As beta versions, keep in mind that they are not final and you are probably going to find some bugs. Just last week, iOS 11 beta 3 was released, allowing iPad users to close open apps with an upward swipe. App Store settings remember if you want to enable auto play for videos.

It's for the iPod Touch. There are currently 3 different models of iPod in production; iPod Touch, Nano, and Shuffle, with only the first being like an iPhone without a SIM card slot.

To update to iOS 10.3.3 OTA, simply take your iPhone, iPad or iPod to Settings > General > Software Update. If only it were that easy for Android.

How difficult is it for you to find a software update option? Seems easy to me.

Well, you do have to worry about the timing of the next software update, or 'IF', you'll even get it. So that's a hassle for many users though. But not the location of the software update option.

If you don't get the reference for the joke then it's your intelligent that should be in question. Everyone and their did dogs know Android doesn't get software updates on time, you can sit there refreshing your software update page for months after a new version of Android comes out and nothing will show up. If you seriously think I was referring to finding the update option in settings then that's just sad.

If you mind paying heed to my comment no.9 you'll see I mentioned just that. And no.5 was a direct reply to what I understood from the surface level of your statement. I didn't try going deep to extract the 'joke' out of it. Because on the surface, nothing gave me the clue that it was such. You see no.6? He also replied with the same exact thing as me. It's all about perception and how deep you wanna go in someone's statement to extract the hidden meaning out of it. I decided to take the easy route my friend. Cheers!!

My ZTE Android phone that I purchased in May of this year has decent specs: - 1080p AMOLED - Snapdragon 660 - 3 GB ram - 32 GB with SD card support - Dual Sim Bought it months ago and it came running Android 5. So I've just navigated to the update menu and it says my software is up to date. Yes exactly the same process as iOS eh? I'm already running 10.3.3 in my iPhone and it came out today.

Well your processor information is wrong as snapdragon 660 was only unveiled by that time the first phones are yet to make it to the market. Regarding Android updates. Security updates are now seeded almost a day or two after Google provides them..
