Apple has released iOS 10.3 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but before you rush out to download it, here's some things you can do to get your hardware ready for the upgrade.

This is what you have to do to ensure things go easily for you. 

WILL YOU GET IOS 10.3?

First things first: Will you get iOS 10.3?
Here is a complete list of the devices that are supported by this release (basically, if you have iOS 10, you can get this upgrade):
  • iPad 4th gen
  • iPad Air
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Pro (12.9- and 9.7-inch)

To know what device you have, use this page to decipher the model number, which you can find on the back of the device or under Settings > General > About > Model.
Is your device not in the list? Then you're out of luck.

BACK UP YOUR DATA

Before you do anything major, such as upgrading your device, you need to make sure that you have a backup just in case things don't go smoothly. This is doubly so for iOS 10.,3 because for the first time, Apple is changing the iOS file system from the 30+ year old HFS+ for Apple File System.
Apple File System is an immense change over HFS+, carrying with it components, for example, advancement for strong state stockpiling, solid encryption, better document time stamping (down to the nanosecond), and numerous capacity sparing enhancements. 
Apple arrangements to move macOS, iOS, tvOS, and even watchOS to Apple File System. 
However, the two document frameworks are not perfect with each other, and once you move up to Apple File System, there's no real way to change over back to HFS+ without overwhelming every one of your information and reformatting the capacity. 
This means when iOS 10.3 is introduced, each document put away on the gadget will be changed over from the old arrangement to the new organization. And keeping in mind that we can expect that Apple will put a ton of exertion into making this change procedure as smooth and effortless as could be allowed, redesigning a document framework dependably opens up the likelihood that something can turn out badly. 
What's more, if something goes wrong, information misfortune is a genuine probability if the overhaul procedure has begun changing over records. 
Which is the reason you require a reinforcement. 
You can either move down your information to iCloud (go to Settings > iCloud > Backup, then turn on iCloud Backup), or on the off chance that you don't have enough space, you can take the old-school street and interface your iPhone or iPad to a PC to do the reinforcement through iTunes. 
SPRING CLEAN YOUR DEVICE 
Odds are great that your iPhone or iPad has collected a considerable measure of debris throughout the months and years, so what better time to dispose of it than now. 
While iOS 10.3 doesn't require as much free space to introduce as prior discharges, disposing of applications that you no longer utilize - or maybe have never utilized - bodes well. 
This is likewise a decent time to discover trades for those maturing applications that you've been utilizing for quite a long time yet that haven't seen a refresh in a very long time (ordinarily in light of the fact that they've been surrendered by the designer). 
On the off chance that you've been seeing some applications produce a message saying that it might back off the gadget until the designer refreshes it to enhance its similarity, then in iOS 10.3 that notice will be moved up to recommend that the application "won't work with future variants of iOS," which implies the end is near. 
DO I NEED TO DELETE APPS TO MAKE SPACE FOR THE UPGRADE? 
Not onthe off chance that you are on iOS 9 or above, on the grounds that the working framework will clear space for you (regardless of the possibility that that implies erasing and re-downloading applications). 
In the event that you are on a prior variant, and you're confined on space, then you may need to clear space by erasing applications (be cautious - in light of the fact that you will lose any related information), erasing sound or video content (music, downloaded recordings, book recordings, and so on), or moving information, for example, photographs to the cloud (continue perusing for more data). 
Refresh YOUR APPS 
In the event that you've not refreshed your applications in a while, then this is a decent time to do as such, on the grounds that a considerable measure of the applications will have been refreshed to make them good with iOS 10 (in spite of the fact that applications intended for iOS 9 appear to run all around in light of my testing). 
While it's possible that your gadget consequently refreshes applications out of sight, it's not a terrible thought to check just to ensure. Discover the App Store application, then tap on it, and snap Update (base right of the screen). Once in there, you can commence the refresh procedure. 
PUT YOUR PHOTOS IN THE CLOUD 
Something else you can do is to transfer your photographs to the cloud. 
KNOW YOUR PASSWORDS 
Taking after the update, you'll have to enter your iCloud secret word so as to have the capacity to reconnect to every one of your information and photographs. On the off chance that you don't have this near hand - had, it on the gadget you're updating isn't too helpful - then this may be a decent time. 
Likewise, if your iTunes reinforcement is encoded, then recall that you'll require that secret key if something turns out badly! 
IS IT BETTER TO UPGRADE OR WIPE A DEVICE AND START FROM SCRATCH? 
It's significantly less bother to simply update a gadget since you get the opportunity to keep all your applications and settings. 
In any case, gadgets that I have wiped and reloaded another iOS onto, and afterward introduced and re-setup all my applications and such, feel quicker and appear to experience the ill effects of less issues, (for example, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi issues). Be that as it may, wiping and reloading the applications and information is entirely huge bother, and it's presumably more work than most need to attempt. 
Would it be advisable for me to WAIT A WHILE BEFORE DOING THE UPGRADE? 
There will probably be a refresh or two to iOS 10.3 descending the channels over the coming weeks, so you might need to sit tight for the clean to settle and for any very late bugs to be squashed before making the jump, particularly on the off chance that you depend on your gadget. 
Likewise, in the event that you utilize your gadget in a BYOD setting, ensure you get the OK from the IT division before overhauling, on the off chance that you can't get to the system or information you require.
