Apple iOS 10.3.1 Is Now Available. What's New?

Apple iOS 10.3.1 Is Now Available. What's New?

 

iOS 10.3.1

 

Apple has released iOS 10.3.1, which is only one week after iOS 10.3 was releasediOS 10.3.1 is considered a minor update as it patches security issues and contains bug fixes. And the iOS 10.3.1 software update release note simply just says: “iOS 10.3.1 includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.”

What Is Included In The iOS 10.3.1 Update?

iOS 10.3.1 essentially fixes some of the problems that were caused by iOS 10.3. Soon after iOS 10.3 was released, Apple had to pull it from the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. Fortunately, iOS 10.3.1 fixes the problem that Apple was seeing with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c as confirmed by AppleInsiderIt is worth mentioning that the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c were Apple’s last iPhone models to have a 32-bit processor (Apple A6 system on a chip). The iPhone 5s did not have any problems because it has a 64-bit processor.

 

Apple was dropping support for 32-bit apps. Going forward, Apple is going to start showing a popup dialog box when a 32-bit app is opened that says: “This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.” It has been reported that Apple has already started phasing out 32-bit support in the iOS 10.3.2 beta that was released last week.

In Apple's security notes, it says that iOS 10.3.1 contains a fix for a Wi-Fi flaw that was reported by Gal Beniamini of Google Project Zero. This flaw could have allowed “an attacker within range may be able to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip.”

IPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus... What's New

 

Apple calls them the best and most advanced iPhones ever. In many ways, they're exactly that. They've got improved cameras, including a new fusion camera on iPhone 7 Plus. They've got better cellular radios iPhone 7 features LTE Advanced, with speeds up to 450 Mbps for data downloads — over 50 percent faster than iPhone 6s and three times faster than iPhone 6. And thanks to even more LTE bands, you’ll have the best worldwide roaming available in a smartphone. And processors, including a new A10 Fusion. Also, for the first time, they're officially water resistant.

 

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus take away the 3.5mm headphone jack and The Home button is completely reengineered, which some will find inconvenient if not infuriating. What they add, though, are better cameras front to back, with significantly improved low-light performance, and a new 2x optical zoom on the Plus model, with simulated bokeh to come. There's also water resistance, and a much more powerful processor that's also efficient enough that, when combined with a slightly larger battery, can provide for an hour or two of extra battery life a day. The speakers are also louder now, top and bottom, and stereo, and the phones can capture and display P3 wide gamut color.
