iOS 10 raise to wake

  • Just pick up your iPhone and it’ll wake up
  • Notifications don’t vanish when brushing up against Touch ID

Apple redesigned the iPhone and iPad lock screen, giving us the biggest revision since the first iPhone nine years ago. Slide to unlock is gone and replaced with simple instructions: “Press Home to open.”

Ios 10

So what’s added in ios 10 the ability to raise your iPhone to wake it, fixing the all-too-common issue of blowing past lock screen notifications when you hit the fast TouchID home button.

Is it not a great solution that we have seen on a select number of Android phones, like the Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, and it almost reminds me of flicking my wrist to light up the Apple Watch?

This is the fine hit solution of iOS 10 that is going to change your daily iPhone routine.

Rich lock screen notifications

  • No need to exit the home screen for quick reads and replies
  • Works with third-party apps like Uber and Apple Home devices

You’ll see that notifications are broken up into bubbles now and use 3D Touch to show hidden menu actions – just hard press on a calendar invite alert and you’ll be able to accept or decline it.

Ios 10

In ios, 10 3D Touch-enabled iOS 10 notifications work far better for Messages. You can immediately respond to messages as soon as you pick up your phone, it’s all done in inline without ever leaving the lock screen.

No more digging around the home screen and layers of app menus to check vital information. If you have a doorbell camera notification, you can see who’s at the front door, use the intercom or unlock the door.

In this ios 10 you can “peeking at apps” capability via the lock screen it is not limited to Apple’s first-party apps. Uber is just one third-party app maker that allows you to hard press on notifications. You’ll get live updates on where your driver is on a map – usually headed in the other direction.

Clear all notifications button

  • Vanquish all notifications at once with 3D Touch. That’s it.

So what may be the best change to iOS 10 notifications is the ability to clear all of your old notifications with 3D Touch. Swiping them away one by one or dismissing them in groups is a time-consuming mess in iOS 9. In ios 10 just hard press that little “x” icon within the redesigned (and now dedicated) notifications pulldown menu and tap the “clear all” box that pops up. Tap it once to just dismiss the group of notifications.

Ios 10

It’s super easy to clear away expired alerts with iOS 10 and it will please everyone inflicted with phone notification-clearing OCD.

Water detection

  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are water-resistant, but all other iPhones are not
  • iOS 10 will warn of possible water damage and provide instructions

Only the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are water-resistant, but Apple hasn’t made a fully waterproof iPhone. So it’s making it easier to avoid potential water damage with the iOS 10 update.

Ios 10

As of iOS beta 2, the ios 10 software reportedly includes a warning message to unplug the lighting cable at the bottom of a device if the phone and new software detect water.

True or not the iPhone 7 is waterproof, as some have speculated. This iOS 10 message is a handy tool because water and a turned-on iPhone don’t mix very well. Let it sit first (in rice, if you believe that myth)

Control Center is decluttered

  • Swipe-up-from-the-bottom menus is now split into several panels
  • Broken into: quick settings, media playback, and Apple Home
  • Touch detection issues for brightness slider vs sliding between panels

The swipe-up-from-the-bottom Control Center overlay menu has a brand new look that helps declutters the layout in iOS 10, and it’s something Apple users have been asking for. It once again features four app shortcuts along the bottom (flashlight, stopwatch, calculator and camera app) and moves the fifth Beatle, Night Shift, to a new, bigger spot above the square looks.

Ios 10

The five app shortcuts in that bottom row, people said that will fix an issue where a short-lived idea that came about when Night Shift debuted in iOS 9.3, made the buttons a tad too small.

On ios, 10 Bigger AirPlay and AirDrop buttons appear above Night Shift, too, while toggles for Airplane mode, WiFi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb and Orientation lock are unchanged (except for their new blue hue when on).

For music control Slide right on the Control Center, and there’s a dedicated pane for the volume, playback, and device output controls, and even music album cover art.

Lockscreen camera and ‘widgets’

  • Slide left to reveal the new spot for the Today widgets
  • It’s not as customizable as Android widgets, but closer
  • Too much empty space when widgets have no content
  • Slide right to reveal the new camera shortcut

It’s much easier than ever to flip on the camera with iOS 10 sliding the lock screen right (when Control Center isn’t open) automatically transitions to the camera app.

This camera app shortcut seems on some Android phones and it beats reaching for the bottom right corner, where the camera shortcut remains in iOS 9.

Ios 10

It’s a cool option for those who uses camera app every day, ios 10 make it easier to access for them.

Well, what happens when you swipe to the left on the lock screen? That’s a question it reveals a new spot for Apple’s Today menu “widgets.” It’s not as customizable as Android widgets, but it seems big improvement for apple users.

Graphical 3D Touch shortcuts

  • 3D Touch (pop) your way to more detailed information (peek)
  • Activity and sports score apps like ESPN provide colorful stats

Within the home screen, 3D touching app tiles like Activity gives you a more graphical account of your fitness achievement’s goals.

You’ll know faster than ever that you have to close those daily activity rings.

Ios 10

ESPN had even richer shortcut information within its 3D Touch menu. It runs scores and there’s a button to easily add a widget. Even more graphical, throwing up a drawn out play-by-play interface and video of in-progress games you’re following.

All of this peeking at apps can be done without leaving the home screen, and it means that 3D Touch is becoming a little more sufficient in iOS 10.

Talk to Siri normally

  • You don’t have to talk like a robot to your robot phone

According to Apple Two billion requests a week goes through Siri, and it’s now going to do “so much more,” With that, they announced that iOS 10 will open up Siri to third-party developers.

Now you’ll be able to ask Siri things like, “send a WeChat to Nancy saying I’ll be five minutes late.'” It can be said variety of ways and still understood by the now-smarter Siri.

Ios 10

In (very literal) other words, Siri also works just fine if you say it like “Tell Nancy I’ll be five minutes late with WeChat,” and even “Siri, can you shoot a message on WeChat and say I’ll be five minutes late?”

Siri for iOS 10, all of a sudden, is going to be a whole lot less “Sorry…” for miscues. This is thanks to what Apple calls an “intense API,” which even functions in this new way in its multiple languages.

Siri third-party apps

  • Siri now works with more third-party apps, not just Apple’s apps
  • WhatsApp, Uber, and MapMyRun can now use Siri, for example

Besides WeChat, Siri is ready for other chat apps, like WhatsApps and Slack, and ride-hailing services like Uber, Lyft and Didi in China (which Apple invested in recently).

Searching photos through apps like Shutterfly and Pinterest can be done with your voice thanks to Siri, and you can start, pause and stop fitness workouts with MapMyRun, Runtastic, and RunKeeper.

Siri can also help you send money to friends with Number26, Square, and Alipay, or start a VoIP call to tell your friend why you’re not paying them on time via Cisco Spark, Vonage, and Skype.

This makes Siri much more useful now that Apple’s personal assistant has broken free of pre-loaded apps, and makes driving a tiny bit safer thanks to messaging and VoIP integration for Apple CarPlay.

Siri-influenced QuickType keyboard

  • Makes next-word suggestions based on whole sentence context
  • Suggests address, calendar appointments, and current locations

Apple’s on-screen QuickType keyboard can intelligently tell the difference between what you’re saying and what computers usually think you’re saying (but not) thanks to more advanced Siri intelligence.

Using deep learning kept locally, or what Apple calls “differential privacy,” iOS 10 understands the wider context of what you’re typing, influencing the words in the suggestion bar above the keyboard.

Ios 10

It has better context by taking into account the whole sentence, not just spitting out the next guess based on the previous word.

This will be completely opt-in, masked and stored on the device, according to Apple. That’s different from Google’s data-harvesting using its online servers.

QuickType is also adding a handy button for your current location whenever someone asks “Where are you?” or requests someone else’s contact information. That Contacts app will go further unused.

Locally, Siri uses deep learning to analyze a conversation and is able to pick up on you and a friend talking about food, a proposed time and restaurant address, and then pre-fill in Calendar event when you go to add it to the Calendar app. “Look at that, it’s already halfway filled in,” you’ll say.

Rounding out the QuickType iOS 10 features is the ability to paste a recent address you looked up without having to copy it to the clipboard, do the same for movies and restaurants you’ve searched and adjust to your multilingual typing.

It’s Apple new “easy button” for iOS 10 and it’s all about shortcuts to everyday activities.

Photos with advanced computer vision

  • iOS 10 automatically pieces together photo albums for you
  • Creates mini-movies filled with video and photos, complete with titles

iOS 10 is going to make use of deep learning so that it’ll be easier to organize photos with what it calls “advanced computer vision.” This is how Apple plans to rival Google Photos.

Again, stressing that it’s done locally, Apple touts the Photos app’s ability to create albums based on face recognition and can do the same for object and scene recognition thanks to 11 billion computations.

Ios 10

It also serves up a way to see photos overlaid on a map based on where they were taken.

Apple plans to take Photos to the next level with Memories, which are supposed to remind you of events in life by clustering together photos into trips, people, and topics. It seems to have a nice magazine-style interface I can get behind.

iOS 10 will also let you assemble your captured photos and videos of a particular memory with a special movie that’s cut automatically. It’s customizable, with a number of mode choices and three length options, just in case you don’t want to fine tune it yourself.

Despite the AI-infused deep search and facial recognition capabilities, Apple promises privacy protection.

Apple Maps is way better

  • Look ahead to the next turn without springing back into place
  • Free to pan, zoom and explore nearby points of interest
  • Still, can’t compete with the juggernaut that is Google Maps

iOS 10 fixes my biggest complaint about Apple Maps – its inability to scroll ahead on a route. Right now, Maps annoyingly springs you back to your current location whenever you try to look anywhere else.

You’ll be free to pan and zoom around the map with the new Apple Maps update and the navigation software is also dynamically zooming in and out of long stretches and complex interchanges.

Ios 10

Maps for iOS 10 is adding traffic on route to better compete with Google Maps and expanding its nearby functionality with more points of interest that you can find along your route.

Vehicles that supports Apple CarPlay not only get suggested alternate routes based on traffic conditions, Maps’ turn-by-turn directions can pop up on the instrument (if they have a screen next to the odometer).

Apple is weaving on iOS 10 information from other apps into maps like if it knows you go to work at a certain time, it’ll make a suggestion for the route, or make one based on a calendar event address.

That’s just the start. It’s also opening up Maps to third-party developers, so Uber riders can call, follow and pay for their ride without ever leaving Apple’s app. It’s getting there.

Apple Music

  • Cleaner interface for APple’s paid music streaming service
  • Lyrics for songs and New tab replaces Browse

Apple Music with iOS 10 is being redesigned for its 15 million paid subscribers, and it “allows the music to be the hero,” according to Apple. It lets the cover art stand out.

It looks to be a much cleaner design, highlighting cover art properly and suggesting music that you’ll like in a more logical fashion. But it’s not going to excite you for iOS 10 if you’re not a paid subscriber.

Ios 10

The Apple Music refresh does add some more depth by way of lyrics (though it doesn’t seem to follow along with the words like other apps do, like SoundHound does).

The For You tab is does a better job at curating your personal playlists and it absorbs the Connect tab that we previously heard was getting a diminished role. Likewise, the ‘New’ tab has become ‘Browse.’

Apple News

  • Magazine and newspaper subscriptions incorporated
  • New ‘For You’ tab filled with personalized topics
  • Breaking news notifications

 

Apple News is reaching 60 million people every month with 2,000 publications and it’s in for a redesign, too. The For You tab now breaks news into personalized topics and hand-picked stories by editors.

News for iOS 10 will also introduce subscriptions so that you can see every issue of National Geographic or read the Wall Street Journal, periodicals usually behind a paywall.

Breaking news notifications have been added to this pre-loaded app so that big stories appear right on the iOS 10 lock screen.

Home app

  • New app that ties together all of the household devices
  • Control lights, door locks, alarms and even blinds
  • Siri and Control Center menu allow for quick access

Apple’s developer-focused HomeKit is coming to end-users with iOS 10 (and also Apple Watch), and the new app appears right on the home screen unsurprisingly called “Home.”

It’ll tie all of your home-based IoT gadgets together into a simple interface and include Scenes to change the mood of rooms in a pinch, no matter which makes your home’s previously fragmented smart tech.

Ios 10

Siri acts as a shortcut to interact with your home accessories, and Control Center does too. Two swipes to the right in the Control Center menu bring up a grid of home accessory toggles.

Also from the lock screen, you can peek at home notifications, say, if you get a doorbell alert. Peek into the notification by hard pressing on the bubble and a video doorbell like Ring will give you a live camera view.

Phone

  • Transcriptions now available in Visual Voicemail tab
  • Could warn that incoming calls are ‘Possible Spam’
  • Contact information shortcut could point to VoIP and WhatsApp
  • It’s based on how you most frequently contact that user

Hate listening to voicemails? Never actually check them? I also. That’s why I’m excited that the rumored voicemail transcription idea made it into iOS 10.

It’ll let you know what a voicemail message says via more convenient text right within the visual voicemail. Apple is also partnering with Tencent in China to alert iPhone owners there that an incoming call might be spam.

VoIP is no longer going to take a backseat, as a WhatsApp call, for example, can be answered right from the lock screen, just like a normal incoming call. They’ll also be part of your recent and favorites lists.

Messages

  • Emojis are three times bigger and it’s easy to replace words with emojis
  • Adds invisible ink, tap backs, bubble effects, digital Ink, and stickers

Messages are introducing rich links within a conversation and a live camera view as soon as you press the camera button. Like emoji? You’re going to love iOS 10.

Ios 10

Apple is making bigger emojis that are now three times as large as before, and the keyboard can now identify words you can easily replace with emojis via a single tap on each word.

Apple will include the 72 new emojis developed by the Unicode Consortium. They’re already in the company’s emoji style and Android Nougat uses them. Hop (kangaroo) to it, Apple (apple fruit) and Android (robot) fans.

Expressions don’t stop there. There’ll be bubble effects so you can “say it loud” with a bursting bunch of text, or say something “gently” with slow-to-exist texts.

You can also use “Invisible Ink” that requires the message receiver to slide their finger over a text or photo. It’ll either be a nice surprise, or horrific shock to your friends.

Apple showed off an Invisible Ink demo in which a blurry photo turned out to be a bride-to-be’s hand with a wedding ring on it. I’m pretty sure there are going to be a lot of appendages sent using Invisible Ink.

You can react to individual messages with expression-driven Tap backs (reminds me of Facebook reactions) and write out meaningful messages with handwritten “digital ink.”

With club disco lights, big emoji and full-screen fireworks for iOS 10, Messages is one crazy app. But it’ll get even more insane in the future because Apple is opening up Messages to developers with an SDK.

So far, Apple has shown off integration for licensed Disney stickers, food ordering services and bitmoji-like expressions provided by JibJab.

More to come from iOS 10

Rounding up iOS 10, Apple quickly mentioned Notes with multiple users editing a document, the ability to edit Live Photos without annoyingly relegating them to stills and a new conversation view for Mail.

On the iPad, Split View support for two Safari windows has been added, finally letting you open up dual Safari windows at once on your tablet, and you can multitask.

Apple said that despite the deep learning capabilities of iOS 10, it’ll keep that to the silicon on your device and not invade your private data thanks to “differential privacy.”

We’ll have more iOS 10 news since the full iOS 10 update is out. We’ll certainly discover additional features to talk about.

Conclusion

The new ios 10 have so many features from year by year’s development made by apple developer.

Apple ios 10 developed for your daily task like massaging, using camera apps, daily activity tracker maps get much-improved etc.it  seems that apple ios 10 made for using daily utility’s super easily and got much graphical improvement for playing videos, games etc.
