Five great Features coming to iPhone and iPad with iOS 10.3
Apple has released the first public beta of its latest iOS update, giving us a glimpse of the new features coming to its iPhones, iPads, and iPods and believe us this software update has many things to offer to its users.  

We have collected five great features which you are going to get with iOS 10.3 on your iPhone, iPad, and iPods.

Apple ID Profile

There's a new profile section at the top of the settings menu with all your account information.

Click on your profile to access your iCloud, iTunes, App Store and Family Sharing information in one place and scroll down to see a list of all the Apple devices linked to these accounts.

You'll still need to log into the Find my iPhone app on your phone or web browser to access them all, but it will save you from having to dig through the settings to access each account.

Software Features For AirPods

While Apple introduced the AirPods back in September, the wireless earphones were just recently made available to customers. The company spurned attempts by third-party developers to develop apps for the AirPods. Instead, it seems that it wants customers to depend on official updates for AirPods.

One such feature, the need for which was evident since the launch of the device, was the need to securely track the AirPods. Since the AirPods are not connected to the phone with any wire, are tiny in size and hang peculiarly from the users’ ears, the likelihood of them getting lost is pretty high.

For this reason, Apple has introduced a new feature called Find My AirPods in its Find My iPhone, which lets users track their devices on a map using iCloud. The app will play a sound from the AirPods to help you locate them, which will get louder as you move closer to the device.

But since AirPods are connected to your iOS device only via Bluetooth, this feature will work only if they are within a range of 5 to 10 meters of your device.

iCloud storage breakdown

If you pay for extra storage on Apple's iCloud, this next one will be especially useful. You can now see exactly how you're using your iCloud storage by clicking on the iCloud option in this new profile section. Tap the graph at the top of this section to figure out exactly what the storage hogs are. This gives you a device and program-specific breakdown detailing how many gigs of storage are being used by each.

If you haven't activated the two-factor authentication on your account (which you should), you'll notice a new "suggestion" section right below your profile in the main settings page. Apple may use this space to give you other suggestions to improve your device's performance, but for now, this is the only suggestion that appeared on my phone.

Weather in Maps

If you're a fan of Apple's proprietary Maps app, you will now have a glimpse of the weather wherever you go. The latest update adds a tiny weather bug to the bottom right-hand corner of the screen showing the current weather conditions in that area. For a seven-day breakdown of the weather, just 3D Touch the weather bug or continue holding to open the weather app in a new screen.

Apple File System

In the iOS 10.3 update, the iPhone’s file system will be upgraded to Apple File System (APFS), which allows multiple file systems to share the same space on the device memory instead of fixed amount of space for each file system.

APFS can grow and shrink without the need for repartitioning your device memory. In simple terms, your device will be managing the onboard memory better with APFS.

APFS will also allow native encryption and let you assign multi-key encryption that will make user data more secure.

In case you lose your device, it will not be easy to break into your data.
