Owners of Apple's latest and greatest iPhone received a software update on Monday, with version 10.0.3 exclusive to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, addressing cellular connectivity problems specific to those models.

iOS 10.0.3 is now available to install either via Software Update in the iPhone's Settings app, or when connected to iTunes on a Mac or PC. It is identified as build 14A551.

After the iPhone 7 series debuted last month, some users on the Verizon network in the U.S. began to experience problems with connectivity. Subscribers found that LTE connections would randomly drop out, reverting to slower 3G or even 2G data.

Some AT&T customers also said they were experiencing similar difficulties with the iPhone 7 lineup, though reports were not as prevalent as with Verizon customers.

Monday's iOS 10.0.3 promises to address those problems.

Apple is still at work on a forthcoming iOS 10.1 update that will enable portrait mode photos for users of the dual-camera iPhone 7 Plus. It's expected that iOS 10.1 will arrive later this month.
