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.
