FIND MY AIRPODS
Apple's latest AirPod headphones recently went on sale in the UK and offer music fans a totally wire-free experience.
Now Apple is lending a hand should you misplace these £159 headphones by adding a find feature.
Should you happen to lose them, iOS 10.3 will allow the "Find My iPhone" app to locate them to within Bluetooth range of any of your iOS devices that are signed in to iCloud.
If your AirPods are within range of any of these devices and available, that device’s location will be used to show you where to start looking.
Find My iPhone can also play a specially designed sound on either or both AirPods to help you pinpoint their location.
If your AirPods are out of range of all of your devices, need to be recharged, or are in the closed AirPod Case, Find My iPhone can still help by showing the time and location where they were last connected to your iOS device.
NEW SIRI FEATURES
Siri also improved massively in iOS 10 with better app support and the ability to use services such as Uber with the power of your voice.
Now Siri is getting even more features including cricket scores.
In the iOS 10.3, Siri now gets cricket scores and stats for Indian Premier League and International Cricket Council
This means you can ask questions such as "What are the 2016 IPL rankings?" or "When is the next Cricket match?" and get a response.
Apple iOS 10.3
Other new features coming in iOS 10.3 include new app animations which now have more rounded edges when they open and close.
And a new iCloud section gives iPhone and iPad users a graphical view of how storage is being used.
Maps also gets a refresh and now includes an option to 3D Touch on the weather icon which will then show local forecasts for your area.
Although 10.3 won't be available for a while Apple has just rolled-out iOS 10.2.1 to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners worldwide.
The updated version of iOS includes a number of critical patches and security updates.
