January 10th is just over a week away, so we'll quickly find out if iOS developers get access to a new beta. Further details are nowhere, but users speculate that it might have to do with improving the iPad user interface.

Dickson claimed (via 9to5Mac) that his sources have given him good information in the past.

Though our speculations about the theater mode is that it will just bring a new feature to iOS that will feature a dark mode or dark player of some sort that might give you the experience of theater. However, the rumored Theater mode needs to be activated manually, according to Dickson's leak. It's unclear what exactly this Theater mode entails but we'll let know as soon as we hear more! He added that the codename for iOS 10.3 is "Erie". What's more, iOS 10.3 is said to include a new Theatre mode that will be granted its own unique icon in the Control Center. Dickson believes it to be an enhanced dark mode.

AppleInsider's analytics recently showed a surge in devices running version 10.3 of the operative system, with the largest spike in visits happening this week.

The iOS 10.3 beta release date, said to be January 10, comes on the heels of this month's final iOS 10.2 software launch.
