IOS 10.3 Makes Finding AirPods Easier

IOS 10.3 Makes Finding AirPods Easier

The new biggest feature for the consumer is "Find My AirPods", which is created to help AirPods owners locate a lost headset.

The update to iOS 10.3 beta also brings Apple File System and a new API which limits the amount of times that an app is able to ask the user to submit a rating.

Apple is revamping its user ID controls, giving users access to their most important information in a single menu.

While Apple does have a big announcement for all of us at its World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, those beta builds of the next update keep on coming. APFS is optimized for flash / SSD storage and includes features such as strong encryption. They can be easily installed from the OTA (Over-the-Air) update system for iOS 10.3, as well as directly from the Mac App Store for macOS Sierra 10.12.4.

There's also a new app open/close animation in the works along with a more detailed breakdown of iCloud usage.

About two weeks ago, Apple rolled out the second beta versions of the three operating systems and like expected, the new versions come with a number of improvements that also include bug fixes, changes to the user interface as well as a bunch of new features for the iPhone and iPad as well as Apple TV and Apple Watch.

The new betas, following standard Apple procedure, were yesterday first released to members of the Apple Developer Program ($99 per year). SiriKit has been available on iOS smart devices since the release of iOS 10.

- HomeKit supports programmable light switches. Users that aren't now enrolled in the Public Beta Program can do so on the official Apple Beta Software Program website.
