Apple has rolled out iOS 10.3 beta 2 and watchOS 3.2 beta 2 to registered developers
Apple has today released iOS 10.3 beta 2 and watchOS 3.2 beta 2 to registered developers, additions to the main iOS 10.3 and watchOS 3.2 betas which launched two weeks ago.
The biggest introduction within iOS 10.3 beta 1 was a new ‘Find My AirPods’ tool for iOS users to help locate missing AirPods similar to the standalone Finder for AirPods application which was pulled from the App Store at the beginning of the month.
Introduced in watchOS 3.1.3, Theater Mode lets users quickly mute the sound on their Apple Watch and avoid waking the screen on wrist raise. Users still receive notifications (including haptics) while in Theater Mode, which they can view by tapping the screen or pressing the Digital Crown.
Here’s what iOS 10.3 packs…
– There’s a new “Find My AirPods” tool to help users locate lost AirPods.
– SiriKit can be used to pay bills, check on the status of payments, and schedule future rides.
– The weather icon in the Maps app includes 3D Touch to show hourly forecasts.
– CarPlay includes new shortcuts for launching recently used apps.
– CarPlay’s Maps now features EV charging station locations.
– HomeKit supports programmable light switches.
– Conversation View in the Mail app features navigation improvements.
– When installing iOS 10.3, it will update the file system to Apple File System (APFS), so it’s important to make a backup before updating.
