iOS 10.0.3 Update for iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Available
Apple has released iOS 10.0.3 for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users. The small update, which arrives as build 14A551, includes a bug fix to resolve potential cellular connectivity issues.
The brief release notes included with the iOS 10.0.3 update states the release “fixes bugs including an issue where some users could temporarily lose cellular connectivity.” This appears aimed at addressing some reported difficulties with particular cellular networks, ranging from dropped calls to an inability to maintain an LTE connection. If you have experienced any such issues with an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, updating to iOS 10.0.3 should help.
Updating to iOS 10.0.3
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners can download the latest iOS 10.0.3 bug fix update now from the Software Update mechanism within Settings app, or through iTunes.
As always, backup your iPhone before updating system software. Backing up to iCloud or iTunes, or both, is strongly recommended.
