Along with seeding a batch of new beta builds for developers, Apple has a slew of new updates for the public this morning, bringing bug fixes and other software improvements to every single one of its platforms.

The public release of OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, iOS 9.3.3, watchOS 2.2.2 and tvOS 9.3.3 are now available to Apple users, after five beta builds were seeded to developers.

iOS 9.3.3 can be downloaded to iPhones and iPads via an over-the-air update by going to Settings >> General >> Software Update. OS X 10.11.6 is available directly on the Mac App Store.

To install watchOS 2.2.2, Apple Watch owners will need 50 percent battery to connect the device to its charger. The new updates focus on under the hood improvements and performance issues, with no major outward facing changes or feature additions.

Apple engineers are hard at work on iOS 10, so this is likely one of the last batch of fixes before Apple moves on to iOS 10, macOS Sierra, tvOS 10 and watchOS 3.0 which are set for public release later this fall, bringing a host of new features to each platform.
