If you have an iPhone, iPad or an iPod touch you will occasionally receive a notification that an iOS update is available. Do you ever wonder why these updates are necessary?
The most critical reason operating systems (OS) need to be updated is to patch vulnerabilities that have been discovered. The flaws are patched so they can no longer be exploited by cybercriminals.
Security patches are not always the sole purpose of OS updates, though. Many times they will also contain some nifty new features that users don't know about.
That's why we're going to tell you about the top iOS 10.3 hidden tricks that will make life easier.
How to update your Apple gadgets
