Quite surprisingly, yet another beta of iOS 10.3.3 has been released by Apple and it shows that even though iOS 11 has been unveiled at the WWDC event, Apple is showing interest in the improvement of iOS 10. Besides, there is still a lot to come as the mobile OS is continuously maturing with every release. Though there aren’t many major features incorporated in the new iOS 10.3.3 Beta 5, but still there are quite a few things to talk about.
What’s Changed With iOS 10.3.3 Beta 5?
Talking about the changes, release notes that came from Apple suggest that there isn’t much that has changed and they’re almost identical to ones that were distributed along with initial release as well as the four earlier beta versions. The iOS 10.3.3 Beta 5, however, comes with some fancy iPad Pro wallpapers that were part of beta 1 too.

The change will not affect any signed root Certification Authority certificates, user-installed SHA-1 certificates and enterprise-distributed SHA-1 certificates.
The installation of iOS 10.3.3 beta 5 will allow access to some security patches and bug fixes. Though the release doesn’t come up with something that can set your pulses racing, it’s important to plug the security holes and fix the bugs.
