Apple Warns Some Users iOS 10.3 May Have Re-Enabled Some Services


iOS 10 Release Notes

Apple has sent out emails to some iOS users, informing them that the recent update to iOS 10.3 may have enabled some on-device services after they were initially disabled by the user.

As first reported by MacRumors, Apple has sent out emails to some iOS users, signaling that a bug in iOS 10.3 may lead to some iCloud services being re-enabled after they were initially disabled by the user. The email suggests users should go into Settings and check to see if any of those services they turned off have been turned back on.

Unfortunately the email doesn’t explicitly say any one specific service that might be reactivated, but the report does say that one user had iCloud Mail deactivated, and iOS 10.3 reactivated it:

“We discovered a bug in the recent iOS 10.3 software update that impacted a small number of iCloud users. This may have inadvertently reenabled some iCloud services that you had previously disabled on your device.

We suggest you go to iCloud settings on your iOS device to make sure that only the services you’d like to use are enabled.

The iCloud team”

iOS 10.3 was launched on March 27, and Apple released iOS 10.3.1 earlier this week.
