IOS 10: Revolutionary coup or bug fixes?
The appearance of the new operating system, Apple's expected almost more than the release of the next version of the iPhone. What's new in iOS 10, how much it will change the functionality of the phone and when it will appear in the public domain, read our review.
IOS 10: what's new in features?
The developers of the operating system slightly changed its interface, including the lock screen, to which the widgets on the left can display widgets, and on the right on the right - the camera. Simplified screen unlocking mechanism - in smartphones running on iOS 10, for this, simply press the “Home” button twice.
We will not dwell on the changes that have affected the design, since it has an indirect relation to the functionality, but it is worth noting that the large light-colored panels look concise and easy to read.
In this version of the operating system, programmers decided to allow users to remove system applications from the main screen.Although the word “delete” is not entirely correct here: only the icons disappear, the programs themselves do not disappear anywhere, and you can return their shortcuts to their original place at any time using the App Store.
A nice innovation was the function of removing the phone from sleep mode - Raise to Wake: when you lift the iPhone from a horizontal surface, the screen lights up, on which all relevant notifications appear.
The developers have expanded the features of the 3D Touch. Now this is not just a context menu, but also part of the program. With it, you can directly from the main screen to respond to notifications. In addition, 3D Touch has increased the information content of the icons.
So, a strong click on the mail icon displays information about people from whom new messages were received. Sensibly clicking on the “Settings” icon, you activate cellular data on the screen. This function is also supported in the control center, where you can now choose the intensity of the flashlight light, set the timer, camera mode, etc.
New application features
IOS 10 updatestouched and applications. We will focus on the main ones.
The clock has a new option, which the developers gave the name "Time to go to bed."Here you need to adjust the time when you plan to get up, set the days on which the wake-up signal should be triggered, and specify the duration of sleep. Then the alarm will remind you to go to bed and wake up at the appointed hour.
The creators of iOS 10 said they changed the application "Photos", using the capabilities of artificial intelligence. Now this program can recognize not only faces, but also objects, pick up the subject of the picture and automatically sort the photo into folders. Memories mode, which is based on self-learning algorithms, independently creates image collections and mini-movies with music and captions.
The user can make his own edits to this video by changing the length of the film, the content and the music.
It has undergone certain transformations and the iMessage utility, which in iOS 10 is capable of sending handwritten messages, showing videos and images, and offering options for quick messages. The authors of the software made sure that users could insert photos using a swipe and send letters with hidden text, which becomes available to the recipient only after he guides the message with his finger.
Telling what is new in iOS 10, one cannot but mention the emergence of a new application - Home, which is essentially a smart home control system. With it, you can turn on and off the TV and air conditioning, raise and lower blinds and garage doors, access your home video camera and perform many more actions with devices that support HomeKit.
The program "Maps" programmers also gave new features. From now on, it can independently plan a route, based on your daily schedule and work plan. The service warns of possible stopping places (gas stations, cafes, shops) and calculates the estimated delay time on the way. Moreover, the maps also show traffic jams.

IOS 10: release date
IOS 10 cannot be called a revolutionary development: everything that is presented in this version was expected and predictable.

Although this software has a significant drawback: installing iOS 10 is not possible on iPhone and iPad models up to version 4 inclusive.
