Apple releases iOS 10.3 public beta 3

The upcoming iOS 10.3 version will introduce several new features, including a new Apple File System and - causing the most buzz among users - a "Find My AirPods" tool that provides a map showing the phone's last known location when the ear phones were plugged in.

Apple today has seeded its third beta of watchOS 3.2 beta to developers. The new biggest feature for the consumer is "Find My AirPods", which is created to help AirPods owners locate a lost headset. Haptic feedback-based notifications are still accessible while in Theater Mode, which can be viewed by tapping the Digital Crown, as per Mac Rumors. Apple is switching its storage system over to the Apple File System, a universal file system the company began implementing in 2016. APFS is optimized for flash / SSD storage and includes features such as strong encryption.

iOS 10.3 is a big update in more ways than one. This third beta includes mostly bug fixes, though reviewers have identified a new "App Compatibility" section under Settings. To install the Apple Watch update, the device is recommended to have a 50 percent battery. HomeKit now supports programmable light switches, and Siri will now be able to schedule rides with ride hailing services like Lyft and Uber.

Speaking of the 3D touch system, it can be tweaked in order to change its intensity in the control icon on the devices which operate under iOS 10. As a result, we'll let you know whether there are new features or updates hidden somewhere.

Here's what iOS 10.3 packs... Users that aren't now enrolled in the Public Beta Program can do so on the official Apple Beta Software Program website.
