Here Are New Features In iOS 10.3

The wait is over. Today Apple has given the first beta release of iOS 10.3 to developers all around the world. we now have an idea of what the software may actually be like when it will be available for consumer use after the conclusion of the beta process.

This update has numerous changes. For the very first time you will be able to use the latest Apple File system. Many changes were made in the first beta so it would not be surprising to see many additional changes in the beta process. However another possibility is that many of these changes won’t be there before the final release. Nevertheless below are some features you will be able to find when you download the software on your iPhone or iPad.

• Find my AirPods

You will now be able to relate why the popular app which was able to locate AirPods was removed from the App Store. This facility is absolutely amazing and you won’t have to worry about losing your earphones again.

Cricket fans are in for a treat. You can be updated on major tournaments and the Indian Premier League through your favourite assistant Siri.

• APFS

The iPhone and iPad for the very first time will be able to make use of the Apple File system with this new iOS update. This system has been working on Mac for quite some time in its beta version but the 10.3 release will introduce it to the iPhone and iPad.

This has been added in the Settings app as a color-coded usage meter for iCloud Storage.
