A carrier document from Vietnamese carrier Viettel points to Apple releasing the final iOS 13.3 build to the public on December 10th. The company had mentioned that iOS 13.3 will drop before the end of this year so the time sounds about right.

Alongside iOS 13.3, Apple will also release iPadOS 13.3 to the public for all compatible iPad and iPad Pro models.

Viettel’s carrier document relates to its eSIM service which goes live on December 13th. It recommends customers to update their iPhone to iOS 13.3 and Apple Watch to watchOS 6.1.1 to use the service. Apple tends to release new iOS updates on a Tuesday or Wednesday so in all likelihood, we are going to the public release of iOS 13.3 on December 10-11.

Apple had released the fourth developer beta of iOS 13.3 last week which further hints that the OS is now almost ready for public release.

iOS 13.3 comes with a number of new features and changes including Communications Limits for Screen Time, the ability to disable Memoji Stickers in the keyboard, support for FIDO2 security keys in Safari over Lightning, NFC, or NFC, and more.

Alongside iOS 13.3, Apple will likely also release the final version of watchOS 6.1.1 and tvOS 13.3 for all compatible devices.
