Apple seeds second beta of iOS 10.3, watchOS 3.2 & tvOS 10.2

Apple has officially seeded the second developer beta of iOS 10.3, which sees the addition of a variety of new features. The most notable of the bunch is the inclusion of a new Find My AirPods feature, which allows owners to find a missing wireless earphone if they happen to misplace it. It also includes SiriKit features expanding to support paying bills and more.

Here’s what’s new in the first beta, and we’ll update the list if anything new is discovered in the second beta:
  • The Find My iPhone app now includes Find My AirPods
  • Reduced Motion is now supported in Safari for web apps
  • SiriKit now includes the ability to support paying bills, schedule future ride-hailing rides, and check the status of payments.
  • CarPlay now has a dedicated shortcut to launch recently used apps
  • CarPlay will now show EV charging locations
  • Navigation improvements have arrived for conversations in the Mail app
  • HomeKit now supports expanded switch accessories
  • New 3D Touch Weather actions
  • Spotlight Search now has a border
  • The Podcasts app now officially has a widget similar to the Music app
  • There’s a new user security section in Settings

Theater Mode in watchOS

watchOS 3.2 brings a new Theater Mode to your Apple Watch.
Invoked via a new toggle in Control Center, Theater Mode puts your Apple Watch into silent mode while keeping the screen dark until you hit one of the buttons, or the screen.

Aside from Theater Mode, watchOS 3.2 will let you control your favorite watch apps with Siri so you can accomplish things like send a message, make a payment, book a ride, start a workout, call a contact or search photos just by using your voice.

To update, developers that installed the first developer beta can download and install the second developer beta for iOS 10.3 as an over-the-air (OTA) update through Settings.
