Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 10.3.2 to Public Beta Testers

by

Apple today provided its public beta testing group with iOS 10.3.2, an upcoming update that was first released to developers on March 28. iOS 10.3.2 comes shortly after the release of iOS 10.3, a major update that brought features like a new Find My AirPods feature and Apple File System.

Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 10.3.2 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on their iOS device.


Those who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and macOS Sierra betas. Betas are not stable and include many bugs, so they should be installed on a secondary device.

Apple has said that the update fixes SiriKit car commands, which should now be working as expected. Beyond that, we don't yet know what features or improvements are coming in iOS 10.3.2, as Apple doesn't offer detailed release notes and nothing notable has been discovered in the betas we've received so far.

As a minor 10.x.x update, iOS 10.3.2 likely focuses on bug fixes, performance improvements, and security enhancements rather than outward-facing features.

Do not update on your production device if you need VPN.

Not sure that is correct as I still have older apps (32 bit) that are working fine. Just have the message that they may not work in a future iOS version. So 32 support is still there currently.

Not sure that is correct. The keynote stated "all apple devices" and everything I read says if you can get iOS 10.3 then you get APFS. So any iOS 10.3 supported devices are converted to APFS now.

Yeah, Ars Technica confirmed that 32-bit devices do not get APFS. Various tests pointed to the same conclusion.

Well something happened on this beta update. Maybe they dropped the 32bit support for older devices in this beta? Just speculation.

Guys? Just read on a German forum. Are we sure, that an iPhone5/5C has got APFS? Someone said, that he read somewhere that a developer said: No.

They didnt no. Only 64-bit devices got it.

Was the iOS 10.3 OTA update ever really available for those devices?

Yes, it was ... at least, for my old iPhone 5. However, 10.3.2 beta does not appear.
