Upgrading to iOS 10.3


Apple released iOS 10.3 this week, so you should all be seeing a notification on your iOS devices to update to the new OS. WARNING this is a very significant upgrade. With this update Apple has upgraded the underlying file system architecture. What does this mean? To the end user the change is transparent. But because this is such a significant change to every piece of data on your device I highly recommend you have at least one if not two backups of your iOS device before you perform the update. I personally backup my iOS devices to iCloud and then also do an encrypted backup through iTunes to my computer. Also, be aware that the update takes some time. Some reports are that it is taking 20 minutes or more, so make sure you have plenty of time when starting your update.

So far I haven't seen any reports of people having issues with the update, but better safe than sorry...
