Well, we now know many of the new iOS 10 features, with 10 already bering revealed during WWDC 2016. iOS 10 beta 1 is now available to developers as of June 13, along with the public beta version coming this July.
iPhone 10 features
Like we said there are now 10 iOS 10 features that have been updated. There are so much more, but Apple did not have time to discuss them during the Worldwide Developers Conference. However, we can look at the ones we do know about.
Update: People are starting to wonder just when we are likely to see the public beta release of iOS 10, and so we have taken a look at what happened last year to try to predict a possibly date.
There is now a redesigned lock screen, and 3D Touch also works on lock screen notifications. 3D Touch will also work with third-party apps as well now, which certainly opens iOS 10 up.Siri has also been opened to developers ow, so even more features to come before iOS 10 is released i the fall.
Apple Maps is also opening app to Devs, and Apple Music is getting a comply new design, which is pretty good news seeing as though this service was announced just a year ago.
We could also see a new Apple HomeKit app, and while there are already a number of third-party Smart Home apps to help control devices, iOS 10 users would much rather use a standalone HomeKit app from Apple.
iOS 10 release date
It was on September 16, 2015 that Apple finally released iOS 9 to the public, and iOS 8 on September 17, 2014. Taking those dates into account, we suspect that iOS 10 will be released on September 14, as this also falls on a Wednesday of the same week compared to the last two dates. We could be wrong, so keep checking back.
iOS 10 rumors
While we have been treated to details of 10 features for iOS 10, more is to come, and so we will cover those over the coming weeks and months.
Needed fixes – We have just remembered another feature, well a fix really that iPad owners hope to see rectified with iOS 10, and that is with the volume indicator. Whenever you turn the volume up or down on the iPad, the indicator that appears takes up most of the screen. This is very annoying when watching videos, especially when it takes a little while to disappear. Surely it would be very easy for Apple to move this indicator over to one of the bottom corners?
What are your thought son these new features?
