Apple has just rolled out iOS 10.3.2 to the public, following around a month and a half of beta testing that began shortly after iOS 10.3 was released. It's now available as an over-the-air update or through iTunes for any devices running iOS 10.

Just like the intervening iOS 10.3.1 update, the roll out notes for 10.3.2 only say that it "includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad," which claims that the release is more focused on security updates. Also included are updates for Find My AirPods feature, weather forecasts in the Maps app and a Podcasts widget. iOS 10.3 also brought the Apple File System to iOS devices to help streamline performance behind the scenes.

Here's how you can install iOS 10.3.2 by connecting your Apple device to iTunes or downloading it by going to the Settings app, then go to General, next is Software Update. The iOS 10.3.2 update is available for the following devices: iPhone 5, iPad mini 2, iPod touch 6th generation and iPad's 4th generation. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c are not eligible for this update since the update software is compatible with 64-bit devices. As with any update that fixes a large number of bugs, you should patch as soon as you can to prevent exploits of the now-public vulnerabilities.

Between June 5th and June 9th, Apple will be hosting the biggest event which is the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) where iOS 11 is expected to be revealed. iOS 11 will not be available for download until this coming September 2017 when the new iPhone should be announced. iOS 11 is believed to have many new features and upgrades including a new Apple Music user interface with an emphasis on exclusive video programming.
