Apple squashes bugs with releases of iOS 10.3.3, macOS Sierra 10.12.6, tvOS 10.2.2, watchOS 3.2.3 [u]

Apple on Wednesday issued minor updates for all four of its major platforms, addressing bugs and patching potential security holes in iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS. [Updated with iTunes 12.6.2 release]




iOS 10.3.3, macOS Sierra 10.12.6, watchOS 3.2.3, and tvOS 10.2.2 are all now available to download as public, final releases. The updates are believed to be minor, as Apple focuses its attention on next-generation major releases of the software this fall, most notably iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra.

The iOS 10.3.3 update is available either over-the-air through the Settings app on an iPhone or iPad, or by connecting a device to iTunes on a Mac or Windows PC. Release notes mention only bug and security fixes.

macOS 10.12.6 is similar, likewise appearing to be a maintenance update.

A total of six developer betas of iOS 10.3.3 and macOS 10.12.6 were issued before the software was finalized.

In addition, there are also are full releases of tvOS 10.2.2, for Apple TV, and watchOS 3.2.3, for Apple Watch, now available to install. There are no apparent feature additions in either.

The new releases are identified as build numbers:

  • iOS 10.3.3 (14G60)
  • macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29)
  • watchOS 3.2.3 (14V753)
  • tvOS 10.2.2 (14W756)


Update: Mac and Windows users should now be able to download iTunes 12.6.2. Apple's notes indicate only minor app and performance tweaks.
