So the a great deal heralded iOS 10 has now arrived and, in all honesty, I’m particularly underwhelmed. We didn’t get the most important overhaul some expected and iOS remains essentially the identical grid of icons it has been for nine years now.
That stated, Apple AAPL -1.17% did unveil a few very beneficial modifications and plenty wanted enhancements in iOS 10. So where are the largest modifications iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users will locate in contrast to iOS 9…
Notifications are in which iOS has lagged at the back of Android for a while, however iOS 10 has made some good sized enhancements right here. So called ‘Rich Notifications’ allow greater interplay with app notifications from the lockscreen (respond, view videos, and so on) and this capability is improved for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus owners with 3-d touch.

Apple has also up to date the look of the notifications so they’re colorful and cartoonish. The reaction to this has been polarised, however it’s a step inside the proper route in my opinion. As is the creation of a much past due ‘Clean All’ alternative in the Notification bar – something Android has had for years.
Along the notifications upgrade, iOS 9 customers will find iOS 10 also treats widgets in another way. Apple has removed them from the notification bar and instead switched them to each the lockscreen (reachable via swipes left or right), Spotlight and a few app icons themselves (see underneath).
