iOS 10.0.3 Fixes Cellular Connectivity Issues

by Josh Centers

Apple has released the small iOS 10.0.3 update to address an issue where some iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users could temporarily lose cellular connectivity. You can install the roughly 75 MB update via Settings > General > Software Update or through iTunes. Owners of older iPhone models and other iOS devices won’t see the update.

Business Insider reports [2] that the iOS 10.0.3 update fixes cellular issues for Verizon customers, who saw their iPhone 7 phones get stuck on slow 3G speeds instead of LTE. That issue also reportedly affected GPS accuracy, so Verizon iPhone 7 users in particular should update right away.

The iOS 10.0.3 update contains the same security fixes [3] as the iOS 10.0.2 update — see “iOS 10.0.1 and 10.0.2 Fix Important Bugs [4]” (23 September 2016).
