Five most existing features that are coming to your iPhone with iOS 10.3
As we all are gearing up for the bigger version of iOS, iOS 11 in the summer of 2017, but the release of iOS 10.3 should hold the Apple faithful over until then.

Apple released the beta of iOS 10.3, in January 2017 and a host of new features and capabilities have since appeared as part of the beta.

Today in this article we are going to talk about the five most existing features that are going to hit your iPhone and iPad with iOS 10.3.

Apple File System

Unveiled at the 2016 WWDC, the Apple File System (APFS) was built to replace Apple's HFS and HFS+ systems, and it has a heavy focus on encryption as a primary feature. With iOS 10.3, Apple users will see their mobile devices migrate from the HFS+ system to APFS, providing stronger encryption for better security, and better optimization for flash storage as well.

iCloud storage

Professionals who use iCloud storage will soon get a much clearer idea of how much storage they are actually using from the Settings app in iOS. In addition to seeing how much storage is being used, they will be able to see what kinds of files are being stored, and which devices are using most of the storage space. This could help an enterprise user get a better idea of how they could shift some files around to free up room.

New iPad keyboards

In a Twitter post, developer Steven Troughton-Smith showed off two iPad keyboard updates that he found in iOS 10.3. The first change he described as a gestural keyboard that allows for swiping motions on keys to add a space or backspace in a line. Troughton-Smith also demonstrated a floating digital keyboard that looks like it can be used with one hand and moved around the screen as needed.

Higher frame rates

Another hidden feature in iOS 10.3 discovered by Troughton-Smith is that Apple could be pushing for iOS device screen refresh rates higher than 60Hz. As reported by Apple Insider, this could set the stage for a more realistic Apple Pencil (great for creative professionals) or for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to eventually come to iOS devices.

iCloud calls for Verizon

While iCloud calls have been supported on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint for a while, iOS 10.3 is bringing them to Verizon as well. From now on, if the device is connected to iCloud, Verizon users can receive calls on their iPads, iPods, Macs, or Apple Watches, regardless of the proximity of their iPhone.
