Check your iPhone, a new update is available. The iOS 10.3 brings a handful of updates to your mobile device, here’s what you need to know:
The most useful feature here is the ability to find any lost Airpods via through the “Find My iPhone” app. If you have your Airpods paired to your phone, you can look for them via the map or you can make it sound release a sound so you can find it easily. Considering that it’s very easy to lose them, this is a very good move from Apple.
One of the biggest feature for this update is the Apple file system. With this, we recommend everyone to backup your devices first because you can’t be too careful as this messes your files up. The new file system is incompatible with the old, so if you don’t save, some things could be permanently lost.
Apple also improved SiriKit. This means that developers can make apps that will allow Siri to do awesome things like book Uber rides and pay bills. You also can now check cricket scores, if you’re into that kind of sport.
iOS’s Carplay feature is also getting an enhancement. you can now get daily curated playlists and new categories in Apple Music.
