Nobody can deny that Apple is doing its best to keep iOS 10 clean and running at optimal performance. Ever since it was released in September 2016, the Cupertino company has thrown update after update our way, barely giving us time to get used to one before the next one arrives. The latest release is iOS 10.3.1, a minor update but with some features that are worthy of a mention and that make it worthwhile updating to. For more information on updating to iOS 10.3.1, see the linked article below.
iOS 10.3.1 Features :
Alongside the usual bunch of performance and speed improvements and minor bug fixes, there are a few features that most iOS users will find beneficial:
- APFS – This is the promised new Apple File System, released to replace the HFS+ system for file storage that is been in place for many, many years. If you update to iOS 10.3.1, your device will automatically be using the new system and you cannot go back to the old one
- Find my Airpods – this feature has now been added into the Find my iPhone/iPad feature on iOS devices, allowing users to track their Bluetooth ear pods in the same way that we track iPhones and iPads.
- Siri – Siri gets the ability to help us track and pay bills, enhance Car Play facilities and check cricket scores
- HomeKit – minor improvements to the way HomeKit works
- 32-bit Devices – problems with iOS 10 forced Apple to withdraw it from the iPhone 5 and 5C but that issue is now fixed in iOS 10.3.1
- 32-bit App Support – from now on, when 32-bit apps are opened, a popup will appear warning these apps won’t be supported with future versions of the iOS and must be updated by the developer
- Call-Blocking – Apple has now re-enabled call-blocking extensions
- Security fix – an important fix for a bug that affected the Wi-Fi chip, potentially allowing third party attackers within range to attack the device
iOS 10.3.1 Jailbreak Update :
If you are considering the update but are looking for a jailbreak as well, it might be worth holding on. At the moment, there is no indication that there will be an iOS 10.3.1 Jailbreak, especially now that Luca Todesco, responsible for Yalu Jailbreak, has stepped back from public jailbreaks and iOS security research work. If you don’t need to update, don’t. If you do, then make sure you save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella and be patient.
