Apple usually likes to make a big splash when it releases a new product, but overnight it quietly updated the iPad and iOS without a lot of fanfare. The latest version of the iPad doesn’t have a number, but it’s the replacement for the iPad Air 2. It features a faster processor, a brighter screen and a significantly lower price than its predecessor. The company did not update the larger iPad Pro.
The most noticeable changes in iOS 10.3 are faster performance and improvements to the Apple File System (APFS) that may free up some space on devices. It also eliminates support for 32-bit apps.
