Developers got an exciting new batch of iOS 10 and macOS betas yesterday, but Apple is still working on new updates for iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan.

Apple seeded the fifth betas of iOS 9.3.3 and OS X 10.11.6 to developers and public testers this morning, along with a new build of tvOS 9.2.2 just for devs.

The fifth beta builds of OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan, iOS 9.3.3 and tvOS 9.2.2 can be downloaded directly from Apple’s Developer Center, or from the Public Beta Tester portal.

The new OS X beta can be installed via the Mac App Store; iOS 9.3.3 beta 3 can be downloaded to your iPad or iPhone via an over-the-air update as long as you have the previous beta installed already

Getting tvOS 9.2.2 is a bit more complicated than installing tvOS 10 and requires developers to use Apple’s configuration tool and plug the device into a Mac over USB.

Apple’s release notes for all three updates only mention minor bug fixes that have been added. Seems how this is the fifth beta, it’s highly unlikely that Apple has made any major UI changes or tweaks, though we’ll find out for sure once we get the updates installed.
