Apple has recently launched its new version of iOS, iOS 10.3 which is a major upgrade before the launch of all new iOS 11, which is expected in the June 2017.

So we hope that you must have updated your iPhone and using your iPhone with iOS 10.3, today in this article we are bringing you the 9 hidden features your iPhone has got with iOS 10.3.

Get convenient access to new Profile Section  

iOS 10.3 added a new profile section at the top of Settings that rounds up all your account information. It provides convenient access to your iCloud, iTunes, App Store and Family Sharing information along with a list of all the Apple devices you've linked to these accounts.

iCloud breakdown

If you tap on the iCloud line in the new profile section at the top of Settings, you'll see a helpful graph of how you are filling up your iCloud storage. Yeah, it'll probably be mostly photos but it still offers a handy check-in on where you stand with your iCloud account. You can tap on the graph to get an app-specific breakdown and manage your iCloud storage.

Get rid of outdated apps

With iOS 10.3, you can see if there are any outdated apps hiding out on your phone. Head to Settings > General > About > Applications and if you see a ">" next to the number of apps you have installed on the Applications line, then you know you've got at least one app that's outdated and could potentially slow down your phone. Tap on each app to check for updates.

Customize your iPhone app icon

Apple is famously controlling with iOS, restricting customization in an effort to keep the trains running on time. With iOS 10.3, however, it allows for some freedom of expression by letting you change the app icon of a few apps. Well, currently, only two: the MLB At Bat and NHL apps. Put your favorite team's logo on your home screen (even if they are destined to finish well off the pace in the NL Central).

Rise and shine

You no longer need to slide to open or press the home button to glance at your iPhone's screen. With Raise to Wake, you need only pick up your iPhone to see your lock screen and any notifications that may await. If you would rather the lock screen not flash on each time you lift your iPhone, go to Settings > Display & Brightness and turn off the toggle switch for Raise to Wake.

Control your lock screen

Your iPhone can show a lot of information on the lock screen, which is convenient for quickly glancing at reminders, messages and more. Should you want to restrict what information can be accessed from your iPhone without your passcode, go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and disable whichever items you don't want showing up on your lock screen.

Control your click

If you back up a level from the previous tip, you can adjust the strength of the buzzing haptic feedback you receive when you press the home button. Go to Settings > General > Home Button and you can choose your click, from a slight (1) too heavy (3).

Get access to Control Center panel

You know how you can swipe up from the bottom edge of your iPhone to call up the Control Center? It lets you adjust Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings, turn on the flashlight and a bunch of other settings and features. But did you know that you can swipe to the left when viewing the Control Center? That lets you access its second panel of playback controls for music or podcasts.

Send messages in style

The Messages app received a substantial overhaul with iOS 10. You can now add stickers and GIFs as well as message effects. There are four bubble effects -- Slam, Loud, Gentle and Invisible Ink -- and five screen effects -- Balloons, Confetti, Lasers, Fireworks and Shooting Star -- and they are somewhat hidden. To access them, type your message into the text field as you normally would but instead of tapping the blue up arrow button to send your message, tap-and-hold the up arrow button to send your entered text with one of the nine effects.
