The iOS 10 is the novel operating system for Apple’s marquee mobile devices i.e.: the iPhone and the iPad. While it is still in beta form and available only to members of apple’s paid developer program, it is an indicator that the iOS 10.3 will soon be available for wider release to general members of the public.
The third major update to the iOS 10 will be the first of 2017 and will pack a couple of new features not previously present in the iOS. Some of these features include:

Improving on this feature that was first released in the iOS 10.1 version of Apple’s mobile operating system, in iOS 10.3 users will be able to use the “Find My iPhone” app to identify the last known location of their Airpods so if one Airpod were to go missing, users would at least have a chance of locating them.
A Floating Ipad Keyboard
