For all you techy and gadgety people out there, yesterday was a big day, as Apple gave developers their first look at what new features will be coming in the company's iOS 10.3 update—which, unfortunately, won't be available to the public for use for a couple weeks or months.
That said, there are some interesting updates that all of those with an iPhone should be aware of, as these iOS updates always focus on improving the quality and functionality of your phone. And, thanks to Cult of Mactv's YouTube, here are a few things to look forward to when the updates are officially available.
While there are some interesting features to expect in iOS 10.3, we find that these are the absolute coolest ones.
Find My AirPods
For those people who have complained about Apple's new wireless earbuds that they released with the iPhone 7—which seems to be everyone—the "Find My AirPods" feature allows you to never be frustrated about where those little bundles of joy may be. That's a big upgrade for both Apple and users, as it, hopefully, eliminates the need to buy a new pair once one or both go missing.
Weather In Maps
Those iPhone users with a 3D Touch device can now see the weather while using the Maps app, which details forecasts in specific areas—making it much easier for those who may be traveling or simply driving around town to avoid unexpected delays due to Mother Nature.
Hidden Keyboard For iPads
An interesting new feature that's actually hidden in the new code is the secret, third keyboard option for iPad, making it easier for users to type with one hand—similarly to how an iPhone keyboard operates.

With the keyboard easily movable around the iPad screen like a picture-in-picture screen, no content will be obstructed while users are on their devices.
