I am curious to try out some of the from above,

Lets AirPods sing for you when you don’t know its location. 🙃

You can find AirPods easily by Find My iPhone app. You can control each one of AirPod sound. Suppose you want only one AirPod to sing because another beloved parter 😍 is already with you, you can do that.

Change App Icon, really wanted feature. This was needed in my past app but then we compromised.

Now, developers can update an icon without submitting app to appstore.

From 2015 apple was warning. So Now, no more 32-bit apps

For 32-bit it show this alert “This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.”

Apple File System (APFS)

Replacing 1998 HFS+, with APFS – which is optimized for Flash and SSD storage, stronger encryption and file cloning.

New App Animation

On opening app round edges. This is only noticeable for apps that takes some time to launch.

Podcasts widget

Swipe to right when iPhone is locked, its similar to Music app widget.

Siri Update

Need to check this. This AI can check status of any bills, car fuel indication, car light switching on/off, car horn control through automaker app.

That’s it. You can Explore a lot more in iOS 10.3. (:

  1. This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
