What’s new in iOS 9.3.3 Download
Everyone is probably looking into iOS 10 now since the unveiling of its awesomeness which was scheduled to be released in coming fall. However, iOS 9.3.3 is really something you need to pay attention to as it’s believed to be the final version for iOS 9 which consists of all the final bug fixes and existing features improvements.
iOS 9.3.3 is considered to be a minor update but it has every possible answer to all existing bugs in the history of iOS 9 and is meant to finalize iOS 9. iOS 9.3.3 will be the last and the most stable version of iOS 9.
Update: It’s also worth noting that iOS 9.3.3 is currently jailbroken. It is now the latest jailbreak-able iOS version since iOS 9.1. It’s definitely a good news for all those who have been stuck and waiting for a jailbreak release that can be applied as soon as you upgrade.
How to download and install iOS 9.3.3 for iPhone or iPad
Users can go straight to the OTA (over-the-air) update to upgrade your device to iOS 9.3.3 immediately. By default, Apple will prompt you a pop up update notice if your device is supported and eligible for the update.
If there is no pop up, update notice or whatsoever shows up on your iPhone, you can go straight to the OTA setting by tapping into the Setting > General > Software Update. You should see an update button for iOS 9.3.3 with its info listed below it. Hit update to begin updating your device.
Be noted that this will cause your device to download iOS 9.3.3 immediately using whatever internet access you have on your device. iOS firmwares are usually huge in size. It’s always recommended to do this only when you are using a WiFi to avoid unnecessary data charges.
Optionally, you can do it the manual way (clean installation) by downloading the iOS 9.3.3 IPSW file from the direct download links provided below in this post and restore it to your device via iTunes. Please remember to do a full backup by both creating a backup in iTunes and syncing all your important data, photos, videos and apps before restoring.
