Public iOS 10.3.1 Download Links For Compatible iDevices

Here are public iOS 10.3.1 download links below for those who want to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This minor software update comes only seven days after Apple has made iOS 10.3 available for public consumption. iOS 10.3.1 update supports older 32-bit devices whereas final version of iOS 10.3 did not. 


iOS 10.3 has brought few new features along with bug fixes, performance improvements and security enhancements. Some of the more notable changes are:
  • Apple File System
  • iCloud Analytics opt-in feature
  • Ability to find misplaced earbud with the Find My iPhone app
  • CarPlay and Siri improvements
  • Reduce Motion for websites
  • Settings toggle to disable in-app ratings and reviews
  • Revamped iCloud section, now at the top of the Settings app
  • Hourly forecast in Maps
  • Navigation improvements for Mail’s Conversation View
  • Easier typing on Chinese and Japanese keyboards

Considering iOS 10.3.1 release comes after just one beta release of the OS, we can say that this release brings some under the hood improvements to stability and security fixes. The small size of the OTA update for the iPhone also indicates that we are looking at a minor update here mainly aimed at fixing some bugs and patching security vulnerabilities.

iOS 10.3.1 brings the support for older 32-bit devices that were not previously able to update to iOS 10.3. Also this update comes with the plugging of a security flaw that could potentially allow attackers to execute code on the device’s Wi-Fi chip.

So if you have a 32-bit device, then this update is going to make a big difference for you. For those who don’t care about jailbreaking, it is recommended to update now to ensure the maximum security for your devices.
