Unless you live under a rock or you ma use only Android devices, I’m sure you’ve heard one of the biggest Apple news releases; iOS 10 is the most significant and robust update! I’ve seen the latest Apple’s videos and press releases and for you I removed the ‘boring stuff’ to only deliver you what you should know exactly about this revolutionary update – I promise it will change the way you will use your Apple products forever!
Apple biggest releases include a huge update to Messages, New Home App, All-New Photos, Music and News & Opens Siri, Maps, and Phone.
Personal & Expressive Messages
- Messages includes powerful animations, such as balloons, confetti or fireworks that can take over an entire screen to celebrate a special occasion, invisible ink to send a message only revealed after a friend swipes over it, and for added personalisation, handwritten notes.
- Automatic suggestions make it easy to replace words with emoji, Tapback creates a quick and simple way to respond with just a tap and rich links let you see content in line and play media without ever leaving your conversation.
Beautifully Redesigned Maps
Maps is even smarter with new intelligence that proactively delivers directions to where you most likely want to go next, based on your routine or appointments on your calendar. Once a route is planned, Maps can search along the route for gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops and more and provides an estimate of how the stop impacts the length of your trip.
Rediscover Memories in Photos
Photos in iOS 10 helps you rediscover favourite and forgotten occasions from your photo library by automatically surfacing them in Memories. Memories scans all your photos and videos and finds favourite and forgotten events, trips and people, and presents them in a beautiful collection. A Memory also contains the Memory Movie, an automatically edited movie with theme music, titles and cinematic transitions.
Home App for Simpler Home Automation
The Home app is deeply integrated into iOS, delivering a simple and secure way to set up, manage and control your home in one place. Accessories can be managed individually or grouped into scenes so they work together with a single command and can be controlled by using Siri. They can be managed remotely or set up for home automation with Apple TV, and can respond to automatic triggers set by time of day, location or action.
New Design for Music & News
Apple Music has an all-new design, bringing greater clarity and simplicity to every aspect of the experience.
- It uses a new design language that allows the music to become the hero and a new structure that makes it easy to navigate and discover new music.
- The Library, For You, Browse and Radio tabs have been completely redesigned to provide an even greater sense of place, and we’ve added a Search tab to make finding music even easier.
In iOS 10, accessing the information you need is easier and quicker than ever. Raise to Wake automatically wakes the screen as you raise your iPhone, making it easier to view all your notifications at a glance, right from the Lock screen.
Notifications, Today view and Control Center are accessible with just a swipe or a press, and deeper 3D Touch integration with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus makes interacting with apps even easier.
Additional iOS 10 Features
• Siri intelligence brings new QuickType features, including contextual predictions to surface relevant information based on location, calendar availability or contacts; and predictive typing supports multiple languages without switching keyboards.
• Apple Pay can now be used to make easy, secure and private purchases on participating websites using Safari, in addition to paying in-stores and within apps.
