Apple is giving iPhone and iPad owners a new beta build of iOS 10.3 to check out. The company is rolling out the second public beta for iOS 10.3. The new version of the mobile OS includes quite a few changes and additions.
If you have already checked out the first public beta of iOS 10.3 that was first rolled out a couple of weeks ago, you won’t find a lot that’s new and different, although there are reports that it does enable Wi-Fi calling on the UK’s Three wireless carrier. Aside from that, the new features from the first beta are still in the second one. That includes the “Find My AirPods” addition to help users locate a lost AirPod wireless earpiece. It also has the Apple File System (APFS) that was created to optimize Flash and SSD storage in devices.
iOS 10.3 also includes some changes in app animation, a new Apple ID profile in the Settings app, more details on how your iCloud storage amount is being used and much more. Apple will likely release a few more developer and public beta builds of iOS 10.3 before making it available to all iPhones and iPads that support it later this spring.
If you are not on the iOS beta testing program, you can sign up for it at Apple’s website. If you are already a beta member, you can download the latest build by going to your iPhone or iPad’s Settings and then click on the Software Update option.
