Apple iOS 10.3 New Features

Apple is rolling out iOS 10.3 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The latest software update includes Find My AirPods support, CarPlay improvements, Apple’s new filesystem, and more.

iOS 10.3 is the first version to include Find My AirPods in the Find My iPhone app, Wi-Fi Calling for iCloud-connected devices for Verizon customers, and a new 32-bit alert that suggests iOS 11 could be 64-bit only.

Apple is also introducing a way for developers to reply to app reviews with iOS 10.3, and a new system-wide app review request feature is being added. iOS 10.3 includes iCloud Analytics for the first time as well.

Here's the overview of all the new features:

Find My iPhone: - View the current or last known location of your AirPods - Play a sound on one or both AirPods to help you find them

Siri: -Support for paying and checking status of bills with payment apps - Support for scheduling with ride booking apps - Support for checking car fuel level, lock status, turning on lights and activating horn with automaker apps - Cricket sports scores and statistics for Indian Premier League and International Cricket Council

CarPlay: - Shortcuts in the status bar for easy access to last used apps - Apple Music Now Playing screen gives access to Up Next and the currently playing song’s album - Daily curated playlists and new music categories in Apple Music

Other improvements and fixes: - Rent once and watch your iTunes movies across your devices - New Settings unified view for your Apple ID account information, settings and devices - Hourly weather in Maps using 3D Touch on the displayed current temperature - Support for searching “parked car” in Maps - Calendar adds the ability to delete an unwanted invite and report it as junk - Home app support to trigger scenes using accessories with switches and buttons - Home app support for accessory battery level status - Podcasts support for 3D Touch and Today widget to access recently updated shows - Podcast shows or episodes are shareable to Messages with full playback support - Fixes an issue that could prevent Maps from displaying your current location after resetting Location & Privacy - VoiceOver stability improvements for Phone, Safari and Mail.

What I think ?

I'm on a 6S, updated from 10.2.1 and I'm noticing a lot of improvement. Animations feel smoother, constant FPS, no droppings (sometimes the FPS would drop when I try to 3D touch homescreen icons, not anymore). However, I feel like Touch ID is a bit slower. Just a little bit. It's not blazing fast anymore.

RAM management seems to be a lot better on iOS 10.3 than iOS 10.2.1 and below. On my iPhone 6s, apps would slowly be removed from RAM throughout the day after a cold boot, even to the point where every app would need to be refreshed when launched. Presumably, Apple fixed some OS level memory leak or similar. 

This is a great release.
