Apple releases iOS 10.3.1 for security purposes

Apple released iOS 10.3.1 Monday.

iOS 10.3.1 is out. Instead, the patch note simply states that "iOS 10.3.1 includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad".


The update was a 30.2MB download as an over-the-air (OTA) update on iPhone 7.

You can check to see if the update is available on your device by going to Settings General Software Update or by connecting your device to iTunes. The update brings iOS 10.3 support for devices running 32-bit processor such as iPhone 5 and 5c.


iPhone and iPad owners, the time to update has come again. Now click on "Download and Install" to download the update.

The release of 10.3.1 comes just a week after Apple released 10.3. It weighs in at less than 30MB, so a Wi-Fi connection isn't really all that necessary.


Apple earlier made iOS 10.3.2 beta available to developers for testing, with no significant release notes. It also included brand new features such as a Find My AirPods option, a Podcasts widget and more.
