On Monday, Apple rolled out the latest version of its mobile operating software iOS 10.3. While the update mostly has security patches, it also introduced some of the most sought-after features that dramatically enhance the iPhone experience.
Here is a list of some of the major upgraded features on iOS 10.3 that will make you want to update to the newer version as soon as possible.
More storage space
The newest version of iOS now replaces the ageing HFS+ with Apple File System (APFS) primarily to support 64 bit architecture. However, what’s more interesting is that it also makes the new OS more efficient in how it formats volume storage at the same time takes lesser overall space then the earlier version.
As a result you will now have more overall storage space available on your iOS device. Users have reported increase in storage space from 2GBs to as much as 8GBs depending on the total storage capacity of the device.
Find my AirPods
This is perhaps the most useful feature for those who use Apple’s latest wireless headphones. The operating software now has a dedicated Find my AirPods tool that allows users to track their AirPods by showing the last location they were paired or send a loud ping signal to track their location.
Weather in Maps
The latest version of Apple’s navigation app on iOS 10.3 now features a dedicated weather icon at the bottom right corner of the screen. The latest addition to Maps allows users to get a quick glimpse of the weather wherever they are going.
Integrated the weather app with Apple Maps then makes the experience seamless especially for those who travel frequently.
Apple ID profile
iOS users will also be able to see a new profile section at the top of the settings menu with all their account information. The profile will now bring together information from iCloud, iTunes, App Store and Family Sharing together all in one place and will also show a list of all the Apple devices linked to these accounts.
