Apple iOS 10.3.3 upgrade may be small but it is important. The security fixes are serious and it introduces no major new bugs, at least none which have so far proved to be more than isolated incidents. The flipside is iOS 10.3.3 lets rather too many bugs go, especially if it is (as expected) the final release of iOS 10.
