iOS 10 Release & Download: What’s New

By on
iOS 10

If you own an Apple iPhone, the question is, is it ready for the new iOS 10? If you do not have one, the new software may persuade you to get one.

Tech Radar reports that Apple’s iOS 10 update for iPhone and iPad lives up to its milestone software version number with the first official details announced at WWDC 2016. It is filled with major changes for your daily phone and tablet routine. All of the new iOS 10 features are for the best and it will be a free to download.

Apple has redesigned the iPhone and iPad lockscreen, giving us the biggest lockscreen revision since the first iPhone nine years ago. Another change mentioned by the same Tech Radar report is the swipe-up-from-the-bottom Control Center overlay menu has a brand new look that helps declutters the layout in iOS 10, and it is something Apple users have been asking for.

MacWorld UK writes further that the Apple on-screen notifications have become more interactive. There are now lots of 3D Touch shortcuts to respond to them in clever ways without leaving the lock screen, and plenty of dynamic features that can happen in the notification itself. You can accept invitations, respond to messages, and stay in a messages thread, live, all on the lock screen. You can see live animated progress of your Uber driver after 3D Touching and Uber notification. Exactly like on the Apple Watch, you can do 3D Touch press and then clear all notifications.

Apple is also “bringing Siri intelligence to the keyboard”. This mainly manifests itself in the use of artificial intelligence and context cues to offer more suitable and relevant suggestions when typing. QuickType is pretty handy and a genuine time-saver at the moment, but remains unsophisticated.

This state-of-the-art technology will be available to Apple fans this July. From the specs we have told you, it may be worth the wait.
