Apple rolls out iOS 10.3 update




After releasing a number of betas to developers, Apple has finally released iOS 10.3 to the masses.

The update is already rolling out to supported devices, including ours here in the Philippines. Most of the new features in version 10.3 aren’t major but it has a huge under the hood change.

Apple is moving supported devices to its new Apple File System (APFS), a file system that was announced at WWDC last year with the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, and Apple TV in mind. It’s designed to scale across Apple’s new devices and take advantage of flash or SSD storage. Shifting to APFS may also result in free storage space on your device.

Other new features include AirPods options and CarPlay improvements.

Supported iOS-powered devices are the iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later, iPod touch 6th generation and later.

    It appears those with 32-bit chipset will no longer receive the update. I noticed that this update freed almost 2GB of space and it has a faster feel, or maybe it’s just me. Installation took less than 10 mins which is shorter than I thought it would. Iphone 7 plus user here.
