Public iOS 10.0.3 download links are now live and you can find them below. Apple on Monday launched a new update for iOS labeled version number 10.0.3 which is the third update to iOS 10 release. iOS 10 launched on September 13th followed by 10.0.1 just a few days later and iOS 10.0.2 on September 23rd. This latest minor update appears to be exclusive for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
According to release notes, 10.0.3 release brings about various bug fixes, including one for an issue where users could temporarily lose cellular connectivity. Apple also pushed out an update to its Classroom app that should fix issues with the education app not being able to find other student devices.
iOS 10.0.3 update should resolve some of cell network connectivity issues many iPhone 7 owners have been experiencing. There were many reports on poor phone quality with Verizon where users were experiencing incoming calls where the audio seemed distant. T-Mobile customers had issues with cell network connections during the original iOS 10 launch where they even recommended customers to hold off on upgrading.
iOS 10.0.3 is actually only available for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus because those are the only devices that benefit from the update. Older iPhones and iPads will not see the update. Here are public iOS 10.0.3 download links you can use to directly install on your phone:
iOS 10.0.3 (iPhone 7): iPhone9,1_10.0.3_14A551_Restore.ipsw
iOS 10.0.3 (iPhone 7 Plus): iPhone9,2_10.0.3_14A551_Restore.ipsw
Today’s update arrives amid ongoing beta testing of iOS 10.1, which is expected to be released within the next few weeks. It includes a new feature exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus, called Portrait mode. The Portrait camera mode creates a portrait with a depth effect that keeps the subject of the photo sharp while creating a blurred background effect — which is known as a “bokeh effect.” And the fourth beta of iOS 10.1 is available for developers now.

If you are subscribed to Apple Music then you probably download a bunch of songs to your iOS device and the tutorial below will help you to optimize music storage on iOS 10. Of course you can listen to your favorite tunes on the go, without an Internet connection, but offline music cache takes up your device’s precious storage.
You can, of course, manually remove any offline tracks stored on the device or have iOS limit music storage on your iPhone. This tutorial will teach you how to manage music storage on your iOS 10 device, change settings to your liking and more.
How To Optimize Music Storage On iOS 10 iPhone
1) In order to optimize music storage on iOS 10 head to Settings > Music > Optimize Storage.
2) Now pick a minimum amount of storage on your iPhone that you want to dedicate to storing downloaded music files for offline listening.
Dedicating a minimum of four gigabytes of storage allows you to keep about 800 high-quality offline tracks on the iPhone. By comparison, 32 gigabytes of dedicated music storage allows you to keep about 6,400 downloaded songs on the device.
Keep in mind that the lower minimum storage you select, the more usable storage space you will have for apps, media and other things. If you’d rather iOS use whatever amount of storage space is available for keeping offline music, pick None instead.
It is possible to prevent iOS from automatically managing your music storage and clearing downloaded tracks as needed, slide the Optimize Storage switch to the OFF position.
With this feature disabled, you’ll need to manually clear any downloaded music when your iPhone is low on space.
To erase a downloaded song, album, playlist or music video from the device, click on it in the Music app and hit Remove button, then select Remove Downloads.
On 3D Touch devices, simply press a song or album, then pick the Remove option. Remember that any removed offline songs remain in your iCloud Music Library, so you can find it there if you need.

If you are wondering why iOS 10 doesn't allow to launch Settings shortcuts from widgets then read this post. Launcher is the original app launching widget and we will start our review from it. With iOS 8 software release and the presentation of Notification Center widgets, Apple basically used the app to set an example of what happens when a developer tries to do things that Apple never envisioned or thought through. Luckily, the developer fought, the Apple community rallied behind him and we got the app back.
With iOS 10, Apple has changes a lot in iOS platform and this time has done something similar to Launcher. Instead of banning the app for interacting with system level functions, Apple has outright disabled the ability to launch certain stock apps. That's is why iOS 10 iPhone doesn't allow to open Settings shortcuts from widgets.
If you’ve upgraded your device to iOS 10 and previously had shortcuts set up for such apps as Settings, Contacts, Clock, iCloud Drive, Weather, Voice Memos, and the Phone app, they will no longer work.
While you can’t launch the Phone app, it is still possible to set up shortcuts for calling people.
The situation with Settings is completely different. For example, if you want to use a shortcut for Cellular Data from the Launcher widget, that’s no longer available as you can now 3D Touch the Settings icon to get Cellular Data option.
It’s already been a month since iOS 10 was launched, but the developer is hopeful that maybe Apple company will reverse this decision.
With iOS 10 release Apple brought mane new implementations and features including handwriting feature or press to unlock option, lots of improvements for Music app, Maps app, Mail app and etc. Although as we can say not all of these Apple's new implementations are welcomed not only by users but by developers as well. Are you happy with all iOS 10 changes and improvements?

Although the app is now more aesthetically pleasing compared to how it looked in iOS 9, many users are really confused when trying to find essential features such as the Shuffle and Repeat buttons.
Another example is the Sort Songs & Albums functionality that is nowhere to be found in the iOS 10 Music app. don't worry this feature is still available, but it is not located in the Music app. So to find out how to sort songs in the Music app in iOS 10 follow the easy steps below:

Swipe to the left to pull up the camera, swipe up from the bottom for the Control Center, and if you swipe left on Control Center, you’ll get to your audio controls.
