Update to iOS 10.3 beta 3 for developers includes "Find my AirPods"

Update to iOS 10.3 beta 3 for developers includes
Apple started sending out today to developers, the third beta versions of iOS 10.3, watchOS 3.2 and tvOS 10.2. The new version of iOS includes Find My Air Pods for those who are missing at least one of their expensive wireless ear buds. The feature will not only allow you to see their location on a map, it will also prompt the AirPods to make a telltale noise just in case they are lost somewhere like in a pants pocket. For the AirPods to show up on the map, they need to be paired with one of your iOS devices and be nearby that specific iPhone or iPad.

The iOS 10.3 beta 3 update includes APFS (Apple File System) and a new API for reviews which limits the number of times that an app can ask users to submit a ratings number. And for iPad users, the update includes a floating QWERTY keyboard that can be used with one hand.

With the update to watchOS 3.2 beta 3, Theater Mode is included. This puts the watch in silent mode and and keeps the screen dark until the digital crown or a side button is pressed. The idea is to prevent the timepiece from creating a distraction to other patrons at the theater.

Those with an iOS or watchOS device registered for developer updates, can go to settings and click on software updates to receive the third beta of iOS 10.3 and watchOS 3.2.

Heres a concept for Apple. Why not make your Airpods have adjustable ear buds. You know like all the other earbuds on the market. This way users would never have to worry about them falling out of your ears. Nor would they ever have to use software to find their Airpods when they fall out of your head. Why would they fall out in the first place. Wait for it, because they just sit in your ear. Actually its really smart on Apples part, especially since the herd is very loyal, and will buy any crap from Apple. Its well documented and well proven. Just look at the ugly Apple watch. Apple even try's to use the words like "different styles". However its just the one square style. Just like Apples Airpods have the one color, and style. One size fits all. This is really smart, because Apple doesn't have to waste a lot of money to accomadate multiple fittings. You know Apple is all about maximum profits, at the expense of users. They have learned as time goes on, that its okay to be burnt in the butt by Apple. The herd are use this by now.

@ Z...... Ignore darkkjedii bro He says ridiculously stupid things at times, including calling people racist when they are not. Then, he will have the audacity to make fun of someone's statement while not elaborating on why he/she is wrong. He will then talk badly about a person with a friend who he's made on this website and no longer address him directly. The dude adds NOTHING to this website. Dark - Do everybody a favor a get over yourself. You're lame as hell bro lol

Sgodsell. I'd expect this kind of garble from Techie only, so it's quite shocking to see it coming from someone else. It amazes me that people are still so salty over a person's personal choices in tech. Does it honestly affect your life that negatively that some people just prefer Apple and their ecosystem, and don't really give a damn if they're being *burnt in the butt by Apple* as you put it? Please, enlighten us as to why someone who buys Apple products has any sort of negative impact on you at all.

You completely ignore what I was saying. But you want me to acknowledge you and your choice of purchasing these Airpods. Sure okay, I agree with you and any other person that wants to purchase these. It's their right. Now it's also my right to say what I want about these Airpods. Plus I am pointing out a few obvious things. Apples Airpods are using the mentality of one size fits all. It's dumb from a users perspective. It's great from Apple's perspective, because they just have to make one size for the entire world. Therefore maximizing Apples profit. Whereas other earbuds have spent the time to include multiple fittings to properly make their earbuds stay in your ears. So no need for software to help you find your lost, and in this case white earings. The looks of these earings (Airpods) turns me off. Maybe if I was gay, I might wear them, but since I am not gay. Personally I wouldn't be caught dead wearing these white dangling earings. But hey, that is me, right. If you want to wear Apple's Airpod earings from your head. Then that is your choice and prerogative.

Relax...he has the right to avoid me, and he was doing really well until he responded to me lol. I was only curious about his 'gold masters' reference...looked like he was eager to spend money on free upgrades or something lol.

Darkkjedii is the biggest loser on Phonearena. The dude is uneducated, posts pictures of his lame corvette, himself taking a gym selfie, and constantly trolls techiexp. What makes this 10x more funny is the dude is like 45 years old lol.

I used to when I was younger, but the new generation coming in is so overly sensitive and easily triggered that it doesn't take long before they're tripping over their own tongues and creating their own drama.

That the new generation comment has me ultra triggered! Joking aside....it's the Internet, most things are completely open to saying as long as it isn't super racist. I mean, you've gotten this far without succumbing to Internet emos, why not give them a taste of their own medicine? Things don't get better until people communicate their differences.
