But before the transition from iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.3 happens, it’s time for the iOS app owner and correspondingly the iOS app development company to invest some time to catch the innovation train, do some coffee musing to keep the mobility solutions relevant with the time.
Yes, some newly introduced features demand innovating iPhone and iPad apps. This will help the target audiences or consumers to seize the technology, a big sorry to linguists, once it will be available to them.
Top features and enhancements of iOS 10.3
Transparent Review and Rating
Apple streamlines not just the app rating and review mechanism but also the way developers respond to them. With iOS 10.3 release, annoying pop-ups compelling users to App Store to review or rate their app would be a matter of past. If the plan goes as planned, users would be able to rate and review without leaving the app. Also developers or concerned app owners can respond to them directly from App Store and that would be openly visible to all on App Store akin to customer review and rating. Hence, potential customers can have a better understanding about how caring an app owner is.
Siri is Now a Cricket Freak
Now with Siri, cricket enthusiasts can learn about the scores of matches played under Indian Premier League and International Cricket Council. If you have apps to provide cricket updates, make sure they are compatible with Siri to keep users engaged in a hands-free manner.
Safari now supports Reduced Motion preference in web apps
Although, motion sensitivity is a good aspect of iOS that makes the device and the apps therein responsive to user’s needs, sometimes, the oversensitivity can cause problems leading to distraction and irritation. Recall a moment, being on wheel you required to find a location’s details on Safari, but the jerk in the motion was playing foul, or your kid wanted to find something but failed just because his tender hands were not firmly holding the device. Now such irritating moments can be avoided in iOS 10.3 sa there is way to reduce the motion sensitivity in the browser.
iOS 10.3 uses new Apple File System (APFS)
This will contribute towards safeguarding the user’s data using the right encryption techniques based on his or her preference. It will also help with creating clones of the files and software to help consumers cope with any unexpected data loss or crash situations.
iOS and CarPlay are better friends now. Without going on to the Home Screen, users can access the last three apps. They can also play their favorite songs in Music.
Find My AirPods
This is a new feature in Find My iPhone app to help consumers locate their missing AirPods, provided they are lying within the Bluetooth range. So, next time don’t lose your temper, if you don’t find your earpods around you.
Hope the iOS 10.3 update information was helpful and it will help you to better put your demand and preferences in front of the iOS app development company you are hiring or working with.
