Apple has announced the new iOS for iPhone and iPad in WWDC 2016. It brings major changes to the iOS UI and its elements. Now you would see a new lock screen, notifications appearing in bubbles, 3D touch to the notifications on the lock screen and more. There found 8 new iOS 10 features for my eye and they are as follows.
1. New Siri smarts
Siri has been made so smart. It is after all the best voice assistant application that is available for the average user of smartphones. Siri now can use the third-party applications through voice commands and can make payments on VoIP when initiated. Siri can become your ‘Samantha’ of ‘her’ movie very soon.
2. New QuickType
You can now respond to the messages quickly with the QuickType. When someone asks ‘Where are you?’, the message repply will automatically add a ‘current location’ button as a reply response. Auto-intelligence has been improvised.
The AI program will cluster and divide the photos based on the facial recognition, location and time. The moments app has been improvised too so that you no need to find through the bunch of photos all the time.
4. Apple Maps and Apple Music tweaks
Apple maps are added with the automatic zooming if straight-out routes and interested location on the route. It also added the scroll through the route ahead which was absent previously. The 8 new iOS 10 features would not be complete without mentioning Apple Maps.
The Music app is tweaked too with the better cover art design and logical suggestion. The new Music app with 15 million paid subscribers has got the makeover that is needed in iOS 10.
5. Apple News Makeover
Apple News app has also got the upgrade with the paid subscriptions to the news of national geographic and Wall Street Journal. The breaking-news section has also been improved.
6. HomeKit becomes Home
The developer focused homekit of Apple for is renamed as Home on the home screen on iOS 10. It integrates the Internet of Things (IoT) and alerts on the locked screen itself.
The voicemails are transcripted so that the receiver could know that the message is about before listening to it. It is the most anticipated features of iOS 10. The contact cards cards have also got the tweak with a tweak of how the user use it.
Messages is one big feature of 8 new iOS 10 features that is getting an upgrade. iOS 10 is bringing rich links and live camera for the new Messages app. The integration with the food ordering app is an addition of easifying it.
