It's about to get a lot harder to lose your AirPods

It's about to get a lot harder to lose your AirPods

However, Forbes rightly points out that even if iOS 10.3 does fix these battery issues, the final public build likely won't be released for another four to six weeks.

The feature has been included in the Find My iPhone app. Apple says if a user misplaces one or both of their AirPods, they can now rely on Find My iPhone app to locate them to within Bluetooth range of any of their iOS devices, which are signed in to iCloud.

When synced with a phone that has location based services on, Find My Airpods will be able to locate them by the last location they were at.

Furthermore, at the top of the Settings app, a new profile page conveniently collects user-related information and management options such as password and payment settings, devices connected to an Apple ID, iCloud and iTunes shortcuts, and Family Sharing.

However, I am still unsure about how Apple is going to help finding lost Airpods that have run out of juice or are lost and slowly lagged behind the Bluetooth connection. Also, to make the search easier the app will blast sound from your lost earbud (s).

As far as other confirmed changes go, there's also a series of incremental improvements to other features.

The update gives Siri the ability to show live scores from International Cricket Council (ICC) and Indian Premiere League (IPL) cricket matches, besides answering other queries. Something you could now ask Siri includes "Who ended up with the most wickets in 2016?" The update seems to be more of a minor performance improvement.

And the news has come in that alongside the iOS 10.2.1 updates; Apple has rolled out the iOS 10.3 Beta 1 as well. Now, you will be able to check the status of and pay your bills through Siri. The Maps app now allow for 3D Touch on the weather icon.

Homekit - Support for light switches that can be programmed. Developers can in turn publicly reply to those reviews as well - a very good addition indeed for the app making community.

Apple has expanded the capabilities of Siri in iOS 10.3. Theater Mode is nowhere to be found on the newest iOS beta update.

The iOS 10.3 introduces the next-gen Apple File System (APFS) with native encryption.

But some people expressed concerns about losing the tiny earphones, which cost $159 (£159) to buy.

Apple today also released macOS Sierra 10.12.3, as well as Safari 10.0.3, tvOS 10.1.1, and watchOS 3.1.3.

Another welcome feature: iOS 10.3 now shows your complete iCloud Storage breakdown. This is pretty huge when compared to Android, since only about 1 percent of all Android users are running the newest version of Android, which is Android 7 Nougat.

The update is available for any device already running iOS 10.

Along with the cricket match updates, the Apple iOS 10.3 Beta update will also bring in a support for the AirPods in the FindMy iPhone app.
