Apple iOS 10.3 third beta now out for developers; comes with App Compatibility feature

The new addition in Apple's beta 3 of iOS 10.3 is an "App Compatibility" section found in the Settings app.


While Apple does have a big announcement for all of us at its World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, those beta builds of the next update keep on coming. Today, Apple has begun the roll out of iOS 10.3 's third beta that is now out for registered developers.

Developers can download the latest beta of the upcoming version of iOS via an over the air (OTA) update provided they have the right configuration profile installed on their devices.

As pointed out by MacRumours, the new addition in beta 3 of iOS 10.3 is an "App Compatibility" section found in the Settings app. It does what it says and will list apps that will not work with a "future versions of iOS."

iOS 10.3 is a big update in more ways than one. There's the Find my AirPods feature for locating lost AirPods and then there's also the new Apple File System (APFS). The new file system is a big deal as it brings features like strong encryption, faster boot, faster app loading times and the fact that it is also future proof.

Another first in iOS 10.3 would be the revamped App Store that for the first time would allow developers to respond to customer reviews (like on the Play Store). Since we are talking about reviews, Apple also plans to include a limit as to how many times a developer via his/her app can ask a user to write a review (goodbye annoying pop-ups).

There's also a new app open/close animation in the works along with a more detailed breakdown of iCloud usage.
