Recently, Apple has launched iOS 10.3.2 designed for iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone. The 10.3.2 update comes over a month since iOS 10.3.1 was released last April 3. Apple wanted to release five betas to the public and developers before introducing the final version.

According to Apple Insider, the iOS 10.3.2 is considered as a minor point release which contains security improvements and bug fixes for iOS 10.3 that may add features such as Find My AirPods, a Podcasts app widget, an Apple ID Settings menu, Wi-Fi Calling on iCloud devices with Verizon, and new app animations. It also includes an iCloud storage meter and a complete under-the-hood revamp of the file system.

Apple will be hosting the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) starting from June 5-9, 2017. This is where iOS 11 is expected to be announced. However, as reports gathered from Apple's previous software updates, iOS 11 will not be available until this year's September. Consumers must expect that iOS 11 offers many new enhancements and features which include the new Apple Music user interface with an emphasis on the exclusive video programming.

According to Mac Rumors, the release notes Apple provided doesn't contain any further information. Although the betas of iOS 10.3.2 state that third-party VPN apps should now work as expected and some of the Sirikit car commands should be fixed. Meanwhile, the download size of the iOS 10.3.2 update is dependent on the device you have. On the iPhone SE, it appears to be between 160-170MB, while for the iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7 Plus, it appears to be between 190-200MB.

Enable to install the iOS 10.3.2, users must connect their device to iTunes or download it by visiting the Settings app > General > Software Update. The iOS 10.3.2 update is now available for iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later, iPod Touch 6th generation and later, and iPad Mini 2. However, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C are not included in this update because this update software is only compatible with 64-bit devices.
