Hot on the heels of Apple’s latest big batch of beta builds, the company has seeded two more updates to developers this morning, bringing new a bunch of bug fixes and performance improvements to iOS 10 and tvOS 10.

The fourth beta builds of iOS 10.3.3 and tvOS 10.2.2 can now be downloaded by registered developers. iPhone and iPad owners on the previous beta or with the proper installation profile can download the update over-the-air.

There’s also a way to install Apple TV betas wirelessly instead of by plugging it into your Mac, but it requires a quite a few steps.

Apple’s release notes for the new beta updates only mention a few under the hood fixes. These will likely be the last software updates Apple releases for iOS 10 and tvOS 10 now that beta testing of iOS 11 and tvOS 11 is well underway. A public launch for both iOS 10.3.3 and tvOS 10.2.2 is likely to happen later this summer.

iOS 11 beta 2 was seeded to developers yesterday. The update brought a few tweaks to the Control Center and other UI changes. Do Not Disturb When Driving is turned on in the new beta too and can now be tested.
