Five new features of iOS 9.3.3 which you might not have noticed
When we all IPhone and iPad users are waiting for the release of iOS 10, Apple has just released iOS 9.3.3 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Comparing any feature of iOS 9.3.3 with iOS 10 (beta version available) will not fare as iOS 10 has much more advance and carry lots new features, but iOS 9.3.3 has also come with some handy changes and mainly with security and performance front.
Users can update to the new OS via Settings. Open the Settings app; tap General, then Software Update to look for new builds.




Assuming you are on iOS 9.3.2 or earlier, the iPhone or iPad will then prompt the new update as available. A Wi-Fi connection and sufficient battery life is required to begin updating.

Today in this article we are going to talk about the five such feature or improvement, to be more specific that has been included in the new iOS 9.3.3.


Improved Security

iOS 9.3.3 update brings several patches for potential security risks and these are going to be important if you store sensitive data on your device.

Apple's website lists 26 patches for potential security issues. This is more than the 22 patches that came with the iOS 9.3.2 update.

If you value your security and privacy, you'll want to think about installing the iOS 9.3.3 update on your device(s) today.

Bug Fixed

iOS 9.3.3 primarily contains bug fixes, security enhancements and under-the-hood improvements rather than new features. Apple did not specify the bug fixes in the software update change-log. However, Apple did publish a security content document in regards to iOS 9.3.3.

Some of the bugs that have been fixed were reported on the Apple Support forums. A bug that appears to be fixed in iOS 9.3.3 is the removal of a blank space where the Beats 1 logo should be displayed in the Music app for users that noticed it was missing in the previous version of iOS. There also appears to be a fix that caused firmware images to become corrupted while using Apple Configurator. Unfortunately, some users reported that they are having problems with Apple Music, Bluetooth and battery life following the software update.

Night Shift has changed in iOS 9.3.3

One of iOS 9.3's most impressive features is called Night Shift. If you've used f.lux, you're familiar with this feature. If you aren't, here's what Night Shift is all about.

Night Shift changes the color temperature of your screen. Colors become warmer after sunset and they adjust back to cooler more natural colors in the morning. So what does this mean for average iOS users?





The bright blue light that comes from your screen at night can interrupt your circadian rhythms making it harder to fall asleep. With Night Shift enabled, your iPhone's or iPad's display will automatically adjust using your location and time of day.

There's a convenient way to disable Night Shift via the Control Center menu that you access swiping up from the bottom of the display. The video below is a demonstration of the feature.

Create Circular Folders with iOS 9.3.3

iOS 9.3.3

iOS 9 users recently discovered a feature/bug that allows you to use circular folders (instead of the usual rectangular shape) without a jailbreak. All you need is a 3 x 3 pixel background to make it happen. We've tested it on iOS 9.3.3 and it still works.

Here's how to take advantage of this bug. First, pick a background from that list and save it to your Camera Roll.

Next, head to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper. From there, select Camera Roll/My Photo Stream and select the wallpaper you just saved. Apply the new wallpaper to your Home Screen. (Note: Make sure you have Reduced Translucency in your Accessibility settings turned off. Otherwise, this won't work.)

iOS 9.3.3 is good for Google App users

If you're an avid user of the Google app for iOS, think about installing the iOS 9.3.3 update today.

In its latest update, Google notes that if you're "having trouble completing searches due to internet connectivity errors" you should try updating to a newer version of iOS 9.




Again, Apple's iOS 9.3.3 update brings everything the iOS 9.3.2 brought with it so it could help solve these issues for you.

It's worth a shot if your Google app/internet connection combo has been struggling on the iOS 9.3.1 update or whatever it is that you're on.


These are some of the changes that have been made on the iOS 9.3.3, if you have downloaded the updates on your device do share your experience with the new updates in the comment section below.
