Plus, widgets previously kept in the Notification Center are now accessible via the Lock screen, by swiping to the left.
However some users will be flummoxed when they discover one of the most recognisable and common actions on your Apple device – swipe to unlock – has been dropped. Clearing them individually still requires a swipe and a tap on the clear button, but you can delete emails straight from the expanded notification, so that’s progress.
Here are the seven things we reckon you’ll want to know about ahead of rollout.
iOS 10 is a large update, particularly for those of you that aren’t coming from Apple’s iOS 9.3.5 update.
As we reported a while ago, Apple is finally letting us ditch some of its first party apps, should we struggle to find a place for them on our cluttered home screens. Apple News has added a trending and top stories section, introduced subscriptions for some publications and allows users to pick which notifications you want when there’s breaking news.
There’s a new Home app to control appliances. Through this engineering and go-to-market partnership, we’re offering our joint customers the ability to seamlessly extend that awesome Cisco environment to their favorite iOS devices. Raise to Wake only works on the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The iOS 10 update brings over 100 new emoji characters to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. As with other Messages apps, the sent message shows a rich preview of the map that has been sent.
You’ll also be able to turn on your phone’s screen without hitting the home button, simply by raising it up, using Raise to Wake.
You’ll have to pay for some of these, of course.
Connect your iOS device to your computer using the Lightning cable and open iTunes.
Messages, the most frequently used app in the iOS suite, has been enriched with a selection of animated gifs and stickers to collect and swap for customizing messages. In fact, iOS blocks the installation from starting until your iOS device is at 50 percent charged.
It’s wise to wait until after the first minor update becomes available to avoid any inevitable bugs or kinks in the software. iOS 10 has been available as a public beta, but that doesn’t mean the version out now is problem free. With iOS 10 on board, you can choose a female policewoman or a female swimmer. Multiple iPhone models also appear to be affected. To ensure you aren’t charged for mobile data, download the update via Wi-Fi.
There are many reasons to consider installing the iOS 10 update.
