iOS 10 Features and All You Need to Know


The much anticipated iOS 10 and it’s features have been released. Apple’s new iOS 10 mobile operating system for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is an enormous step and iDevices are about to get a bigger, bolder, and more brilliant makeover — in more ways than one. In this post, I am going to show you the 10 latest features that have changed in this firmware.


First, iOS 10 is getting a remodeled Lock Screen. It facilitates new wealthy notices that assist further communications and more details without opening the iPhone or iPad, and there’s a remodeled Control Center that facilitates 3D Touch in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

This is by no means the final release. For the adventurous, iOS 10 beta one download links are now available for iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, SE, 5s, 5c, 5, iPad 4 and over and iPod touch 6th-gen. It’s at the moment available to those registered on Apple Developer Program. The beta program allows Apple to get users to test the new OS, get feedback and solution to possible bugs before been made available to the public.


User Experience

Knowing that this is actually a beta release, the user experience has been greatly enhanced. It now facilitates pick up to wake and has an easier way to gain access to the camera by just swiping to the left. If you swipe right, you’ll find your widget page. The notification area has been remodeled with new bubble-like notifications and widgets. Apple has given the 3D Touch a lot more power. You can now view more information from notification or even apps on the home screen by using the 3D Touch.

Smarter Siri

According to Apple, two billion requests a week go via Siri, and it’s now going to do so much more. With this, iOS 10 will open up Siri to third-party developers. Now it can send messages via non-Apple message customers; it can book Uber cars, among others. Siri has become much smarter. Apple has opened up the API for Siri. That means you guys will be able to go ahead and ask things like Siri to pick you up with UBER or to use WhatsApp through Siri. I mean even quick replies are all connected with Siri.

Smart Quick Typing

Apple’s forthcoming iOS 10 update will feature enhanced QuickType keyboard recommendations, which will now go beyond suggesting the next best word to write, and will intelligently recommend dates, locations, contacts and more. Thanks to what Apple calls “Siri intelligence,” iOS 10 can analyze Messages content and glean if there’s a specific kind of information a person is looking for. For some people, one of the most important additions may be the ability to use multiple languages in the same conversation. Also, iOS 10 makes it possible to use languages like English and Spanish in the same sentence.

Raise to Wake

Although “Raise to Wake” is not a new feature for other mobile operating systems, but it is new for iOS users. Just lift your phone and it wakes up. Now you don’t need to press the on/off key to getting your phone sleep.

Photos App with Advanced Computer Vision

The photos application has received a huge overall. There’s a lot to talk about here; primarily face detection and the scene detection. Photos will comb through all of your photos, and it will find certain scenes or certain people. So, you can group all the photos into that certain group. For an example, you were swimming. You can ask Siri to find all the photos of you swimming and the photos application be able to see all of those. A new memories tab has been added to photos app. So, all of your photos from a certain time period or event will appear in these little memory groups, or even you can create one.

Improved Apple Maps

Apple Maps has received an overhaul as well. Now Apple says it’s a lot more user-friendly when driving. iOS 10 has been fixed the biggest complaint about Apple Maps – its failure to scroll ahead on a route. You can get suggestions of closest restaurants, close gas stations and it will actually tell you how long it will take and how much longer it will add to the trip.

New Music Application

The Apple Music with iOS 10 is being remodeled for its 15 thousand paid members, and it allows the music to be the idol according to The Apple company. It allows the protect art stand out. It looks to be a much better design, featuring protect art properly and indicating music that you’ll like in a more sensible fashion. You have all these categories right on the screen so that you don’t have to shift the manually to get into different ones. It’s certainly easier to use. The buttons are big and clear.

Reimagined Control Center

There is now 3D touch on the control center. There would be some toggles over here. Finally, it has a third tab with toggles for your most used smart accessories. There is a third Tab if you are using the new Home app shortcuts for your home components. You can slide to the next page and here is your music player. Night shift has been removed from the control center and I think most of the people don’t need it on that panel.

Remove System Apps

Now you can remove system apps – literally a lot of the big stuff. I’m surprised that Apple even made these removable like weather, maps, stocks, etc. You can really delete them now. There is a question, how to get the deleted apps. Don’t worry app store has all these apps. Visit here and download your required stock app.


A message is something that all of us use probably the most important device. So, Apple wanted to make it a lot more friendly. It seems like almost the Snapchat app. There’s a lot of notable features here. There are now animations for the message is 3D touch on the send button, and you can say loud right here. If someone shares a link, it’ll pull in all the appropriate details like artwork from the website, titles and more. the best part is Emoji are now 3x bigger.

These are the 10 latest iOS 10 features coming to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. I hope, there are more to come in the final release. Share your opinion regarding the new iOS 10 features.
