This feature allows users to locate their wireless earbuds when they happen to misplace them. There's also a new change to the Apple File System (APFS) that is said to be a big enough change prompting iOS users to backup their device before updating.

Apple's iOS 10.3 official changelog includes the following:

Find My iPhone

The new update allows users to view current or last known location of AirPods. It also allows a sound to be played on one or both AirPods to help find them.

Siri has been updated to include support for payment apps, ride booking apps, and automaker apps. It also displays Cricket sports scores and statistics for Indian Premier League and International Cricket Council.

The update brings shortcuts in status bar for easy access to the last used apps on CarPlay. There are also new updates to Apple Music.

watchOS 3.2

As for those with an Apple Watch, the new watchOS 3.2 update brings some new changes and features to the device. Among the biggest features that can be expected is Theater Mode, a new feature that disables Raise to Wake and switches the device to silent mode. With this feature, other individuals do not get disturbed inside a movie theater.

Apple's watchOS 3.2 official changelog includes the following:

  • Siri. The update now allows Siri to work with apps from the App Store to start workouts, make payments, send messages, book rides, and many other features.  
  • Theater Mode. This new feature keeps your screen dark and switches to silent mode until you tap it. Even if you raise your wrist, the feature will not change.  
  • Scribble. Now available in French, Italian, and Spanish 
  • Music. The Music playlist sync progress is now displayed on the Apple Watch app on an iPhone.

T-Mobile users have shared their experience of the new iOS update through a Reddit forum. The carrier update is said to be arriving today.

  1. I don't mean any offense but wouldn't iPhone users already know this?

    1. They nay, but android user may bot, so if this article can keep the android users in the loop better then they may choose ios over android, if ios will NOW meet their needs better.

    2. How does a bot nay, pray tell?

  2. I am an occasional iPhone user, and didn't know this.

    Thanks, Christine, and Pre Paid Phone News!

  3. My iPhone doesn't alert me on new updates immediately but rather a few days to week later on updates.

  4. thanks. various other articles say that it is so much more important this time around to be sure to back up your iphone before updating to iOS 10.3 because of new file system being put in place -- the new APFS replacing the old HFS+

  5. Using a fadPhone on prepaid is like putting pearls on a pig.

    1. So just because we choose prepaid service we should also revert to using burner-class phones? Do you also recommend luxury car owners go fill up at the most expensive gas station in town?

    2. My pig only eats $7.00 a month, how much does yours eat ?

    3. "Do you also recommend luxury car owners go fill up at the most expensive gas station in town?"

      Even better analogy: that luxury car owners only drive on very expensive toll roads?

      TBH, he is a very vague troll. My first instinct was that a FadPhone was some sort of Android....

      And is a Phadlet a fad phone with a screen larger than 5 inches?

  6. "My pig only eats $7.00 a month, how much does yours eat ?"

    The policeman's beard is half constructed, but I still don't know what color my parachute is.
