Key features of iOS 10

You may be wondering why Apple is calling iOS its biggest iOS update ever. As said earlier, the latest iOS update brings loads of changes how you interact with the software. One of the best things that Apple has done is giving ability to remove pre-installed apps from the home screen. If you don t use Stocks or any other such native app, you can simply disable it to have the apps on your display that you extensively use. But perhaps the biggest change is the removal of iconic Swipe to unlock feature. This means you can unlock your phone via the home button using fingerprint scanner or enter the passcode on the screen.

The iMessage has seen a major overhaul. The app seems to be evolving as a standalone Messenger-like platform. From crafty GIFs to new stickers, the new features on the iMessage make it more fun to use. The iMessage now has its very own app store which means that you will be able to do things like order food, book flights and send money without having to leave the conversation. Another interesting feature is that you can send a message in your own handwriting. A new ‘invisible ink’ feature allows you to send a photo or video that remains hidden until you swipe over it.ALSO READ: Should you buy the Apple iPhone 7?

Another key feature of iOS 10 is the customizable widgets, which give extra information from an app on the lock screen. Users can peak at the information such as calendar, calculator, appointments and weather information without needing to unlocking the phone.

Apple has made some changes to its digital voice assistant Siri. The upgraded voice assistant is now open to third party developers, which means you can now ask Siri to book an Uber or order you some food. Not just that, Siri can also transcribe voicemail messages for you.

Apps like Apple Music, Maps, Photos and Health Kit have also received makeover. Apple Music has had a complete rework from the bottom-up and Photos has a new section called Memories that can automatically stitch together a video of a time and place, such as holidays. The tweaked app will let you search for things like petrol pumps and restaurants and will also notify users as to how much longer it will take to arrive at the destination.
