Apple has launched the last updated version of iOS 10, iOS 10.3 before the mega launch of iOS 11, expected in June 2017.  

As we know Apple latest iOS has some great hidden features which are normally not highlighted by apple but are very handy for the users. Today in this article we are going to talk about the 5 hidden tips of iOS 10.3, which will be very handy for the users.

Optimize iPhone storage

While you could always manage your iPhone storage by keeping smaller, space-saving photos and videos on your device while all of your original, full-resolution versions are stored in iCloud. You can now also Optimize Storage in Apple Music to automatically remove older tracks you haven’t listened to in a while to make room for new content.

Siri will be your friend in need

You can use your iPhone to call your emergency contact without actually touching any physical button on your iPhone or iPad. Although without this feature enabled, you can still use Siri to contact emergency services, but you need to activate Siri by holding down the home button. Siri will respond with “Calling Emergency Services in five seconds…” followed by a countdown in case the user wants to cancel the request before the call is made.

SOS on Apple Watch

Similar to the SOS feature on the iPhone and iPad, the watchOS 3 also has an SOS feature, which lets you alert your SOS contacts in case of emergency.

When you make a call with SOS, your Apple Watch automatically calls the local emergency number. In some countries and regions, you might need to choose the service that you need. You can also add emergency contacts within Medical ID, who will be alerted via text once you’ve completed your SOS emergency call.

The Mail app now lets you ‘Unsubscribe’

To begin with, the iOS 10.3 has a hidden improvement for the Mail app, which brings the new ‘Unsubscribe’ feature to the app. Most of us already use this feature on the Gmail app and it has been on the desktop version for a while now. But Apple’s default Mail app never had the feature.

As the name suggests, it makes it easy for a user to remove themselves from an unwanted mailing list by simply opening the email and tapping on “Unsubscribe” at the top of the email.
