For a lot of people, 2016 was considered to be a rather ho-hum year for Apple. While we did get a smaller version of the iPad Pro, new iPhones, an updated MacBook Pro line, and AirPods, the changes that were made to Apple's existing products were all extremely incremental. That's not to say that the changes were bad, but aside from the Touch Bar and truly wireless earbuds that turned out to be a lot better than we were initially anticipating, Apple didn't do a whole lot to excite us last year.
We're still in the very beginning of 2017, and while we there might still be a little more than 11 months to go before the year is out, Apple is already hard at work at updating iOS. Today saw the official release of the first beta for iOS 10.3, and although we were initially expecting the beta to be released back on January 10, the amount of new features that are present in the new update make those extra few days of waiting well worth it. There's a whole lot to whole lot to talk about with this latest update, so without any further ado, here's what's new in the first beta for iOS 10.3.
