Apple released today iOS 10.3 to the public, and it’s available for free as an over-the-air or iTunes update for all iOS 10 users.
The update brings the new “Find My AirPods” feature which has been added to Find My iPhone. iOS 10.3 also introduces a new Apple File System ( APFS ) which is installed when the device is updated and it’s optimized for flash/SSD storage, including improved support for encryption.
As you might know, Apple unveiled today a new iPhone 7/7 Plus color option: Red. The iPhone features a red aluminum finish and it’s launching as part of Apple’s partnership with (RED). it will be available on Friday March 24th in 128GB and 256GB models starting at $749.

Alongside the (RED) iPhone 7, Apple has also unveiled a new first-party video creation app called “Clips”.
With the app users will be able to “create expressive videos” on both the iPhone and iPad. The app lets users combine videos, images and music into one seamless video that can be shared on iMessages, Facebook or Instagram.
Users can create animated captions and apply effects like comic book filters, speech bubbles, shapes and full-screen animated posters.
You can record video directly within the app or add video and photos from your device.
Clips will be available on the App Store for free beginning in April, and is compatible with iPhone 5s and later, the new 9.7-inch iPad, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad mini 2 and later, and iPod touch 6th generation. Devices must be running iOS 10.3.

Apple has also doubled the storage capacity for the iPhone SE so now the phone is available in 32GB and 128GB starting at $399.
There’s also a new cheaper iPad that’s going on sale Friday for $329. It replaces the iPad Air 2 and it’s simply called “iPad”. As you expect, the cheaper iPad features an A9 chip and it does not come with support for Apple Pencil or include a Smart Connector.
We’ll see what iOS 11 is all about in a couple of months at WWDC 2017, but for now it’s time for concept videos.
This iOS 11 concept video was put together by Jacek Zieba, and shows what group FaceTime video chats might look like or how we could easily clear app data and caches. It also shows multi-user support but I don’t think that’s something we can look forward too. At least not with iOS 11.
