Looks like BlackBerry just pulled the trigger on the OS 10.3.3 update, which many fans have been waiting for. The new update is now rolling out to compatible devices, but it is not yet available in all countries.
As some of you may already know, BlackBerry is rolling out new updates of this magnitude in an incremental fashion, which means that only a small number of selected users receive the update initially. In the coming days, the availability of the update will be extended to even more devices.
OS 10.3.3 was known to hit BlackBerry devices for a while, but no one guessed when exactly the Canadian company would put it in the hands of users.
Well, according to the latest reports from CrackBerry forum users, BlackBerry 10.3.3 is now distributed to those who own compatible devices. As mentioned earlier, it is not yet available in all countries, but the update should be available on all smartphones by the end of the month, if not faster.
Keep in mind that this is a large download, so make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network before trying to update your phone to BlackBerry 10.3.3.
A few recently released screenhosts confirm that OS 10.3.3 is a 1.6GB download, which means we should expect some major changes to be included.
Talking about that, Blackberry has not yet made an update regarding the update and no changelog is available at this time.
However, users who managed to capture the update have found some cool new features and improvements that we would also like to mention.
First of all, there is a new anti-phishing setting in the browser settings and new NFC (Near Field Communication) toggles in the system settings. Additionally, the Android RunTime bug that prevented Android apps from fully uninstalling has been fixed.
The native Facebook app has been completely phased out since the developers announced they would stop supporting BlackBerry 10.
Unfortunately, there is also a known issue that has been mentioned by users, and that is the fact that SNAP (third party google play) is broken.
