How to Download & Update to iOS 10.3.3
The easiest way to update to iOS 10.3.3 is through the Software Update mechanism of iOS. Always backup an iPhone or iPad before installing any software update, even if is a minor point release update.
- Go to the “Settings” app and choose “General” and then go to “Software Update”
- Tap “Download and Install” when iOS 10.3.3 shows as available
The iPhone or iPad will automatically download and install the update, which is fairly small, and then reboot when the update has been completed.
Users can also choose to install iOS 10.3.3 through iTunes and a computer, or by using IPSW firmware files to manually update.
