Apple is in the process of preparing iOS 10.3 for a public launch, which means beta seeds will find their way to developers on a semi-regular basis.
Apple has officially seeded the seventh developer beta of iOS 10.3, which sees the addition of a variety of new features. The most notable of the bunch is the inclusion of a new Find My AirPods feature, which allows owners to find a missing wireless earphone if they happen to misplace it. It also includes SiriKit features expanding to support paying bills and more.
To update, developers that installed the previous developer beta can download and install the seventh developer beta for iOS 10.3 as an over-the-air (OTA) update through Settings.
Update: The seventh public beta has also been seeded for public beta testers.
