Apple has updated all of its software platforms and users should receive notifications in the next days. Below we’ll tell about what each update has brought, but you should expect only minor changes, such as bug fixes and an improved user experience.
iOS 10.2.1 was finally released yesterday, after going through four beta versions. The installation file has 72.2MB in size and according to Apple, it comes with “bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.” Unfortunately, there is still no fix for the bug that causes iPhones to crash after receiving a text message with a rainbow flag emoji. So, if your friends want to play pranks on you, nothing will stop them from sending you this malicious combination that will freeze your device for three or five minutes. The OTA update should arrive soon, but you can manually check for it by going to Settings -> Software update.
There are already rumors about the upcoming features of iOS 10.3. The first beta is expected to come with a Theater Mode that will change the settings on iPhones and mute sounds with incoming calls, notification alerts and it will dial down screen’s brightness, so that users will not bother other people when going to a theater. This update was rumored to be released on January 10th, but it seems that Apple is still not ready to bring it to the surface.
When it comes to macOS 10.12.3, the new update improved automatic GPU switching and it solved some problems with Adobe Premiere Pro on the new gen MacBook Pro models. Also, it fixed an issue that prevented users from searching for scanned PDFs in Preview, it took care of a compatibility issue that had to do with PDFs that have been exported with encryption enabled. Also, in the previous update, “some third-party applications” couldn’t import images from digital cameras, so this problem was solved too.
watchOS 3.1.3 comes after Apple has pulled the of 3.1.1 version, which bricked many devices, so it came with important bug fixes, while tvOS 10.1.1 was focused on “general performance and stability improvements.”
