Everyone and their cat have heard by now that Apple will release iOS 11 in the fall. The newest version of their beloved operating system promises to bring a myriad of new features, especially for tablets. In fact, iOS 11 aims to turn tablets into full-fledged mini laptops, which means that their functionality will be increased dramatically. And not only newer tablets such as the freshly unveiled iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9-inch are getting the star treatment with the new iOS, but older models from other lines as well.
Meanwhile, we’ve still got iOS 10 on our hands, and iOS 10.3.3 will come out sometime soon. The new version of the OS is at its sixth beta developer previews. The sixth preview has just been released, so let’s have a look at it and see what’s up with it.
About iOS 10.3.3
If you’re a registered developer in Apple’s developer beta testing program you can get the sixth beta of iOS 10.3.3 right now. If you’ve gotten your hands on the previous five, then you know that they don’t make much of a difference, just some minor bug fixes and performance tweaks here and there.
The sixth beta isn’t much different. However, seeing as iOS 11 is in the making and it plans to be radically different than anything that has been done before, it’s easy to understand that why Apple is no longer doing anything new with newer variants of iOS 10. If you want dramatic changes, you will need to wait until this fall for iOS 11 to launch. In the meantime, iOS 10.3.3 is just an upkeep version, much like iOS 10.3.2 before it.
