Just hoping the battery discharge rate is back to normal. This ip6 battery drains such that I almost need it on a charger 24/7 when I'm not using it, or it will be under 20% when I really need it !!

File System Conversion

When you update to iOS 10.3, your iOS device will update its file system to Apple File System (APFS). This conversion preserves existing data on your device. However, as with any software update, it is recommended that you create a backup of your device before updating.

It the in app ratings new?
This seems like a good enhancement. I imagine that developers will have access to (new) APIs that can trigger an app review within the app. Perhaps this is Apple’s solution for getting rid of these annoying ‘rate me’ popups within apps.
