4 big changes are coming to iPhone and iPad with iOS 10.3
We all know that whenever Apple updates their mobile operating system they have some great surprise for iPhone and iPad users.

As we all are aware that Apple has released the iOS 10.3 in beta version, today we are bring you the extract of features which are going to give the new experience to the iPhone and iPad users.

iOS 10.3 Hints That iOS 11 Will End Support for 32-Bit Apps

This is probably the most important thing you’ll want to know about iOS 10.3.

Those running the iOS 10.3 beta have been getting a warning message when trying to run 32-bit applications. As you can see in the tweet above, the message says “This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.”

This means Apple will likely end support for 32-bit apps in iOS 11, the next major version of the mobile OS, which is expected early this fall.

The end of 32-bit app support is good and bad news. On the down side, those who have been on iOS for a long time will “almost certainly” have some old games or apps that they’ll no longer be able to use, according to Apple expert and CEO and Founder of Kiwi for Gmail Eric Shashoua. The good news is that newer apps on newer iPads and iPhones will be more powerful.

Apple has for some time required that new apps and updates to existing ones be 64-bit compatible, but the move to drop support for 32-bit apps may still come as a surprise to some. Meanwhile, Google’s Android platform, and most devices that run on it, still support 32-bit programs, but that will likely change in the future.

A New Feature Called “Find My AirPods” Is On The Way

Apple first announced its AirPods alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in September 2016 and was supposed to release them in October, though they didn’t actually hit store shelves until December. The $159 wireless earbuds are intended to help usher in Apple’s vision for a completely wireless future and are meant to be used with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, both of which lack a headphone jack.

But one of the main criticisms against AirPods is their high price tag, considering how easy they presumably are to misplace (if you lose one you’ll have to pony up $69 for a replacement). Apple is addressing those concerns with a new iOS 10.3 feature called “Find My AirPods” in the Find My iPhone app.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the feature won’t be able to pinpoint the exact location of a missing AirPod at all times, since the little ear buds don’t have a built-in GPS connection, but will tell you the last place they were in Bluetooth range of any device running iOS in your iCloud account (note, that does not include the Apple Watch, which runs watchOS).

This feature will likely be most helpful for those times you misplace your AirPods at home, as it will be able to confirm and give you peace of mind that they’re somewhere in the house. When this happens, you’ll be able to tap a “Play Sound” button in the iOS app and your missing AirPod will sound an alarm so you can find it.

Shashoua says Find my Air Pods likely would have been released earlier but wasn’t ready in a bug-free, stable form until now.

In-App Ratings Are Coming

With iOS 10.3, you’ll be able to rate apps without even going to the App Store. Developers will be able to ask you to rate and review their app while you’re using it.

This new in-app rating feature will presumably encourage more ratings, which is a good thing for the ecosystem overall. Users might not care too much about this, but it’s a “very significant” change for app developers, Shashoua says.

Meanwhile, developers will now be able to publicly respond to reviews. Here’s how the feature will work, according to Apple:

When iOS 10.3 ships to customers, [developers] will be able to respond to customer reviews on the App Store in a way that is available for all customers to see.

Get the iOS 10.3 on your iPhone and iPad

At this point, there’s no word exactly when Apple will release iOS 10.3 to the general public, but it’s expected sometime this spring. Those who can’t wait that long and are willing to try it out in beta form can do so right now.

The iOS 10.3 public beta is available to members of Apple’s Beta Software Program. Anyone with a valid Apple ID can sign up to participate in the program and get access to the beta software. To get started, just click the link above on your iOS device, then log in with your Apple ID or create a new one. Be sure to backup your iPhone or iPad via iTunes before you begin.

Keep in mind that you’ll be using pre-release software, so it may “contain errors or inaccuracies and may not function as well as commercially released software,” Apple warns. Each public beta comes with a Feedback Assistant app, which can be found on the second page of your Home screen on your iOS device. As you play around with the new mobile OS and you encounter an issue, just fire up that app to send your feedback directly to Apple.

  1. The Galaxy S8 launch is shaping up to be one of the biggest announcements of the year, as usual. There is still a little longer to wait, however, as Samsung has pushed its launch back; it will not happen at MWC 2017 as it normally does.
