Other than the complaints, some must not miss are the epic trolling of the iOS 10. Now good or bad, with the power that social media holds right now, everything happening in the world now invariably has to go through a dose of sarcasm and trolling, and so did the new OS upgrade by Apple.

Along with the new features on iOS 10, Apple has also made improvements to emoticons, which look more 3D now and are more orange somehow. The notifications looks absolutely different with a more placard-like design and every notification is listed in different cards now. The control panel looks similar, but some design changes have been made to it as well. The panel has now been changed to two sections — the first section has all the controls and settings, and when you swipe left there are multimedia app s control shortcuts.
The lock screen now looks really different. Instead of the slide up for camera, iOS 10 s lock screen looks a lot like Android with a swipe left for camera and swipe right for notification setup. Additionally, there are some big changes to the iMessage app with new feature added to it, like stickers, animations and GIF. Sharing multimedia is a lot more simple on iMessage now. There are also some minor design changes to the way the phone s dial pad looks, the way the phonebook looks. The clock app now has a black interface, and has a cool new bedtime feature which assists you to adopt healthy sleeping habits.
Also, in case you are planning to go for the upgrade, it is important to know which all devices have been listen by Apple as iOS 10 compatible. However, also note that even though the new OS is compatible with some older devices, all iOS features may work on them. For iPhones, iOS 10 is compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus and obviously the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
