iOS 10.3 has 3 secrete feature which will blow your mind 
Apple has released the new version of iOS, iOS 10.3 and it has some great news and features for all.

While some of the exciting iOS 10.3 rumors failed to pan out, the first version of iOS 10.3 beta delivered some new and interesting changes to developers and those testing the software in the free Beta Software Program.

Apple’s since built on that foundation with a couple of new beta releases including the current version of iOS 10.3, iOS 10.3 beta 5.

Like all milestone updates, the iOS 10.3 update comes with a mixture of bug fixes, tweaks, and new features. Some, like a crucial bug fix for an iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6 Plus issue, are more impressive than others.

In this article, we have brought 4 hidden features which you will get on your iPhone and iPad after updating your device.

Get Excited Because iOS 10.3 Should Arrive Soon

The first thing to get excited about is that you probably won't have to wait too much longer for the official version of iOS 10.3 to arrive for your device.

If you're uninterested in trying out the iOS 10.3 beta, or if you're dealing with a maddening problem on iOS 10.2.1 or an older version of iOS, know that the iOS 10.3 release date should take place in the near future.

We haven't been able to nail down an exact date but a March or April iOS 10.3 release is trending in the right direction. Apple is probably the worst case scenario at this point.

Nothing is confirmed but Apple is rumored to have a launch event planned for March. The company is reportedly planning to debut new iPad models. Rumors are also pointing to 128GB iPhone SE and a brand new red iPhone 7 option.

So how does iOS 10.3 play into this? Well, a Bloomberg says "Apple may roll out the new iPad software features as part of an upgrade to the iOS 10 operating system in the first half of 2017."

It's also worth noting that last year's March event saw the debut of a new iPad Pro, the iPhone SE, and Apple's official version of iOS 9.3. The company released the iOS 9.3 update the same day as the event.

With the iOS 10.3 beta now on its fifth iteration (iOS 10.3 beta 5 is now available), a lack of changes on recent beta releases (it's probably not going to add new features to the beta, it's a refinement process at this point), and a potential March event looming, we're confident that iOS 10.3 will be released sooner rather than later.

Now, let's move onto what in the iOS 10.3 beta's change log has us most excited.

Get Excited If You're a CarPlay User

If you're the proud owner of a car that employs Apple's CarPlay platform and you actually use CarPlay, you'll probably be excited to hear that iOS 10.3 is improving the feature and making it safer.

Developers digging into the iOS 10.3 beta have discovered a treasure trove of CarPlay tweaks. The most exciting change is an improvement to the user interface.

On older versions of iOS, CarPlay requires you to make multiple taps to access another application. If you've used it, you know the process. You're forced to tap Home and then make another tap to open up a new application.

In iOS 10.3, Apple's eliminated the need for a second tap. With the update on board, you'll notice three applications sitting in a dock aligned on the left side of the screen. These are static and they'll stay in view when you're inside other apps.

Most of the time you'll see Maps, an entertainment application like Spotify or Music, and an app for communication purposes (Phone, Messages, Skype, etc).

This is the big change on board the iOS 10.3 update but there are a few smaller CarPlay features that might excite you.

The Music app now features the Up Next function in the Now Playing screen. This allows you to easily skip around tracks in a playlist.

In addition, you can now tap an album title from the Now Playing screen so you can easily jump to the song's root album.

CarPlay Maps in iOS 10.3 also lists the location of nearby EV charging stations. If you own an electric car, that's probably exciting.

If You Use iCloud-connected Devices on Verizon

If you use iCloud-connected devices on Verizon's network, it's time to get excited about the iOS 10.3 release.

While Wi-Fi Calling on other devices is available on major carriers like AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. It's also available on smaller carriers like MetroPCS and Simple Mobile.

For whatever reason, Verizon still hasn't trotted out the feature. Fortunately, that should change whenever iOS 10.3 is released.

Beta testers have discovered an Integrated Calling (Calls on Other Devices) function lurking on the early version of iOS 10.3 update.

With this feature enabled, Verizon iPhone users will be able to make and receive Wi-Fi calls on other iCloud-connected devices, provided they are signed into the same Apple ID that's used on the iPhone.

So, for example, if you own a Verizon iPhone and a recent iPad/Apple Watch/iPod touch, you'll be able to make Wi-Fi calls over those devices. This works if the iPhone is turned off or if it's on another (or no) Wi-Fi network.

Get Excited If You Use AirPods

If you recently picked up a pair of Apple's AirPods, you should definitely be excited about the iOS 10.3 release.

We haven't misplaced them yet but we've definitely lost track of our AirPods for short periods of time. And that's why we're extremely excited about one of the feature's Apple's including in the iOS 10.3 update.

As of right now, the iOS 10.3 update features a brand new "Find My AirPods" function that's located inside the Find My iPhone application. Like the Find My iPhone feature, the Find My AirPods feature allows you to easily track the location of your AirPods.

Specifically, it lists the last known location where your AirPods were connected to an iOS device over Bluetooth. It also allows you to create a sound to help you find your lost headset.

This will come in handy around the house or office and it could be a lifesaver if you misplace them at a restaurant, on public transportation or inside of an Uber.

iOS 10.3 Jailbreak Unlikely

If you're a jailbreak user and you're hoping to jailbreak the iOS 10.3 update on release day, you'll want to temper your expectations as we close in on the update's release date.

Nothing is confirmed but odds are good there won't be an iOS 10.3 jailbreak available for iPhone and iPad right when the update is released.

First, we typically see a proof of concept ahead of a release. Jailbreak developers haven't publicly teased anything related to the iOS 10.3 update.

Second, popular jailbreak developer, Luca Todesco, recently stated that he would "stop all public iOS research" after the release of the iOS 10.2 jailbreak.

It's possible that we'll see another group release a tool for iOS 10.3 (or iOS 10.2.1) but we wouldn't get your hopes up at this point.
