Apple iOS 10.3 is here

iOS 10.3. Once the update has been applied, you’ll be able to locate your AirPods via Find My iPhone. Just like with an iPhone or iPad, Find My iPhone will show you either the current or last known location of your AirPods.

Assuming they’re still powered on, you can also make one or both sound a tone to help you find them. Considering many folks we were worried about how easy it would be to lose these wireless earbuds when they first launched, this will probably prove to be a handy feature indeed.

Siri is getting quite the boost in this update as well. Apple has added a lot of different functionality, making Siri play nice with payment apps so you can pay bills and check the status of those bills by summoning her. There’s also new support for scheduling rides through apps like Uber and Lyft, along with support for checking all sorts of statistics about your car through apps from car manufacturers.

There are a number of miscellaneous new features being added in this release as well, and one of the coolest is some new functionality for iTunes. Starting today, you can rent a movie in iTunes once and then watch it across all of your devices, which is a huge addition if you find yourself renting from iTunes frequently.

You should be seeing the notification for iOS 10.3 either now or shortly, so if you want to take advantage of these new features, make sure you apply it once it appears
