iOS 10 will look much similar to iOS 9 but there are some additional features which might interest you. Here are a few of them:
One of the new features is moisture detection for the Lightning port. If any water is detected then a message will appear prompting the user to disconnect the cable to avoid damage.
iOS 10 is going to have some new emojis and the design of emoji is changed too. They now look somewhat 3D than before.
iMessage in iOS 10 has redesigned totally. Now with automatic emoji insertion, message bubble effects, rich links and more, and it will also be opened to developers so you can use apps within iMessages. With Digital Touch you can, Draw with one finger, Tap with 2 fingers to send a kiss, Tap and hold with 2 fingers to send a heart, etc
Totally New-look and Feel of Control Centre and widgets. Control Centre now split over multiple screens, with music and video control on the second screen. It will make your Control Center more neat.
News has also been redesigned and is now broken into sections to make it easier to browse and has new Subscriptions.
QuickType brings Siri intelligence to the iOS keyboard with improved predictive text and suggestions to add relevant pictures and files. The keyboard has got a new click sound.
Redesigned Maps app, with easy-access controls by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and guess what, it will also remember where you parked your car.
Home for iOS is a new app that will allow you to control your HomeKit-compatible smart devices. You can connect various accessories via Bluetooth.
There’s new face recognition for photos, plus object- and scene-recognition. It will identify the faces in photos and organise them into different folder for each person.
Memories is also a nice feature which will categorise your photos according to the location you visited.
Bedtime reminds you when to go to sleep and wakes you up at the time set by you. It will take care that you are getting plenty of sleep. So much caring iPhone is!
- You can now delete most of the default apps, such as Reminders, iTunes Store, Mail, Maps, Calendar etc. If you want them again you can simply reinstall them from the App Store.
- New ‘Clear all notifications’ command
- No swipe to unlock your phone. To unlock the iPhone you have to press the home button even after your fingerprint is recognised on phones with Touch ID. Personally, i didn’t like this. Previous way of unlocking was better than this one.
