In iOS 10 Apple has added more features to your lock screen- you can swipe right to launch the camera, swipe left to see the widgets and even look at the look screen without touching the phone. As always a top-down swipe opens your notification center which has been completely redesign, it looks more like a notification on your Apple watch.
Now, if you see the home screen you will be surprised and happy at the same time. 3D touch shortcut will bring more information by allowing apps to show live details in 3D touch Pop-Up which will be more convenient and time-saving for you.You will find your Foreground of the screen will be focused and the background will be blurred while using 3D touch.
This time the drastic change in IOS 10 has been found in iMessage. There is a major upgrade in iMessage Apps. Apple really made its users happy by adding whole lots of new features. It has now rich previews. With iMessage App, third-party developer can also add emojis, animation and other media in the combos.

Emojis are three times bigger and Messages will suggest emojis based on what you type. You can also tap on words to replace them with emojis. You can now directly write in the message, add bubble effect– Handwriting bubbles, popping bubbles, tiny bubbles etc. also you can send a full screen effects like a firework. Another interesting feature is Invisible ink where you can send a message or photo that remains hidden and then simply swipe to reveal it.

There has also been positive change in Photos app in IOS 10. This iOS uses deep learning locally on the device to do face recognition. Apple is making it easier to find and group images. The new photos app groups your photos library into editable movie memories using local on device facial recognition and AI detection of what’s in your images. It can combine photos and videos into themed mini-movies complete with transitions and a soundtrack. iOS now also detects objects in your photos, like water, a mountain, tree etc. You can now search for “tree” and find all your trees photos.

There are many other use of Siri like paying back your friends in Venmo or Number26, starting a workout in Runtastic and Runkeeper , calling a ride in Uber or Lyft, calling using Viber or Skype.
Last but not the least, Apple showed brand new version of Apple music which the company said that it was built from the ground-up with simplicity in mind. In in-effort to make things less confusing the first screen that we find just after opening the music app is library which is broken into two sections–music store locally and streaming tracks.
