Apple releases iOS 17.3 Beta 3 to Developers

At the start of the new year, Apple introduced iOS 17.3 Beta 2, alongside several other updates. Unfortunately, the beta update encountered a significant issue leading to many iPhones going into a bootloop. Apple admitted the issue was widespread and pulled the update soon after the release. While many expected a re-release, it didn’t happen. Today, Apple has released the third beta of iOS 17.3, skipping the re-release of the second beta.

Apple releases iOS 17.3 Beta 3 to developers first, but soon it will be released for public beta testers as well. The update is available with build number 21D5044a. The build number tells us that the release candidate build and public build are almost here. Yes, this could be the last incremental beta of iOS 17.3.

Along with the third beta of iOS 17.3, Apple also releases iPadOS 17.3 Beta 3, watchOS 10.3 Beta 3, tvOS 17.3 Beta 3, macOS Sonoma 14.3 Beta 3, macOS Ventura 13.6.4 RC 3, and macOS Monterey 12.7.3 RC3.

iOS 17.3 Beta 3 Update

The third beta might be the final beta, considering the indications from the build number. So, we aren’t expecting a lot of changes in the third beta. However, there will still be a few changes. I’ll compile the list of changes below once I gather all of them.

As mentioned earlier, the iOS 17.3 Beta 3 is currently available to developers, but soon it will be also be available to public beta testers. From the last beta 2 update, we all learn that we should wait before installing the update. So make sure to check for feedback before installing the update once you get them.

To check for the update, go to Settings > General > Software Update. Here you can download and install the update. But don’t forget to backup your data and charge your iPhone to at least 50% before upgrade.
