What I think ?
RAM management seems to be a lot better on iOS 10.3 than iOS 10.2.1 and below. On my iPhone 6s, apps would slowly be removed from RAM throughout the day after a cold boot, even to the point where every app would need to be refreshed when launched. Presumably, Apple fixed some OS level memory leak or similar.
