Apple released iOS 10 to the public this week just days after unveiling the iPhone 7. While the iPhone 7 has proven to be disappointing with its lack of stellar new features and the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, iOS 10 shows promise of what’s to come.
I was reluctant to upgrade to iOS 10 this week because Apple updates are notorious for their bugs that can leave phones or iPads “bricked,” or in an unusable state for a period of time.
However, I decided to take the plunge and see what Apple had to offer. They had a lot.
Perhaps the best new feature is how the phone wakes when you simply pick it up. No more reaching over for your phone and pressing the home button, which usually unlocked the phone because of touch ID.
Other exciting features include redesigned notifications, new messaging features, and the ability to delete those default apps that you’ve never used. You know, things like Stocks and Watch.
iOS 10 also just seems to run faster, and the interface seems cleaner.
iOS 10 is a breath of fresh air, and everyone should give it a try.
