iOS 10.3.3 will fix one of the biggest issues of iPhone
While we are still waiting for September for the release of iPhone 8 and iOS 11, Apple has launched a new version of iOS 10, iOS 10.3.3 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on Wednesday. Official release Note of iOS 10.3.3 says “iOS 10.3.3 includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad”.

If you recollect, iOS 10.3. wasn’t a major upgrade for the mobile operating system. In fact, the most substantial upgrade was invisible, as Apple replaced the HFS+ file system with the new Apple File System (APFS). Other additions include the Find My AirPods feature, a new Podcasts widget and updated app transition animations that you may or may not have even noticed.

But we would suggest you should grab Apple’s most recent update, iOS 10.3.3, as soon as possible: It patches a serious vulnerability over Wi-Fi that would allow an attacker to take complete control of your phone.

Known as Broadpwn, the vulnerability was discovered by Nitay Artenstein. It affects both iOS and Android devices that use Broadcom’s Wi-Fi chipsets. (Android was recently patched to fix the flaw as well.) Artenstein discovered that anyone within Wi-Fi range can execute memory-corruption exploits on Broadcom’s BCM43xx chips used in every iPhone since iPhone 5 and gain control of your phone entirely.
Now that the security hole has been patched, Artenstein will release fulls details about the hack at the Black Hat conference next week. In the meantime, just take five minutes and update. While the 10.3.3 update doesn’t have many new features and is mainly a series of security patches, it’ll also likely be the last update to iOS 10 before the release of iOS 11.

To update your device to iOS 10.3.3 now, you can do so by heading to Settings > General > Software Update on your device and tapping “Download and Install” at the bottom of the page. You can also apply the update through iTunes by connecting your iOS device to a computer.
