iOS 10.3 Beta 4
Doesn’t exactly ship with tons of new features or user-facing improvements, as expected. Beta 4 of iOS 10.3 include a new message on screen which informs users of an impending reboot when they hold a button during an update process. Apple has also issued some fixes for sounds made when Find My iPhone locates AirPods, alongside providing some love around the iCloud backups process.
Apart from major changes, we now have a platform that looks to take a step closer to a public release, which will bring a new internal file system, called Apple File System or APFS. This platform also introduces CarPlay improvements, Siri improvements and more. There’s a powerful access to SiriKit to allow developers to produce better and more powerful voice-capable applications for iPhone and iPad.
