As a new option in iOS 10.3, Find My AirPods get a particular character because this will be useful more than the “Find My iPhone”. For further information, this new option will help iPhone owners to locate their misplaced AirPods same as the Find My iPhone.

Download iOS 10.3 on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch

The over-the-air update mechanism is the most simple way to download a new software update on your iOS device. But bear in your mind that download Cydia won’t compatible with your device if you have used this method. If you wish to jailbreak and Cydia download on iOS 10.3, I recommend you to follow iTunes update.

  • Make a complete backup using iCloud
  • Open Settings app on your Home screen
  • Then navigate to General > Software Update
  • Tap on “Download and Install” to download new software
  • Enter your passcode, if asked
  • Tap on “Agree” button for Terms and Conditions

iOS 10.3 install using iTunes on your Mac or Windows

  • Plug the targeted device into your  Windows computer or Mac
  • Open the latest version of iTunes
  • Before starting the installing progress, backup your iDevice with iTunes
  • Click the device icon at the top left corner on iTunes
  • Click on “Check for Updates”
  • Once the iTunes checked for new version, click on “Download and Install”
  • Click on “Agree” for Terms and conditions
  • Enter your passcode, if asked

By following these two methods, you can easily upgrade your software version to the iOS 10.3. However, if you are a Cydia download fan, stay on your current firmware version to save the jailbreak possibility.
