  • iOS 10 : What do you want to see?
    .

    Apple's iOS 10 update is an iPhone and iPad milestone in the making and will be a bigger release than iOS 9.

    Downloading the iOS 10 beta and the final release a few weeks later won't end up being a big surprise, but where Apple takes the mobile operating system is still a mystery. Apple is preparing the redesigned iPhone 7, according to the latest leaks, and that means the interface may take on a few surprises. Here's what we've heard and want.

    Apple is reportedly testing iOS 10 right now, meaning it's on track for another June release date at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference event.

    The official iOS 10 announcement is expected to happen at the WWDC 2016 keynote, with an introduction by Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering.

    iOS 10 release date




    Apple Developer Program members will be the first to install iOS 10, likely in June.

    Since everyone wants everything for free, you can wait a week or two, typically in July, to test out iOS 10 early via the public beta. It requires jumping through some hoops on Apple's website, but registration takes no more than a few minutes of your time.

    iOS 10 Device Compatibility

    iOS 9 didn't cut anyone out of the mix when the update rolled out to devices in September. The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 still work with the latest operating system update.

    That may not happen again given the simple fact that iOS 10 may require more than 512MB of RAM. iOS 9 was very slow and lots of users did however complain about the OS being laggy on the iPhone 4S.



    We really thought both devices would be axed when the iOS 9 update became available. Because these Apple devices are going to be five years old by the time iOS 10 comes out, we think it's time to put the clinging-to-life 30-pin dock-equipped phone and tablet to rest. Expect Apple to allow the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and the iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 6 Plus to handle iOS 10.

    Same goes for the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and maybe even the original iPad mini. Also, not to be forgotten, the iPod Touch 6th generation should also be in that list.

    Siri and voicemails

    When it comes to iOS 10 features, we fully expect Apple to improve Siri simply because this happens every year. This time, Siri may become your true personal assistant by handling your voicemails.



    The first big iOS 10 rumor is that Siri can tell a caller why you can't pick up the phone and even transcribe voicemail messages so you can read them on the go or in loud venues.

    The Siri voicemail service is part of something called iCloud Voicemail, according to a recent report from Business Insider, and is an enhancement of the standard digital audio recorder.

    Apple isn't launching a mobile network of its own, at least not yet. However, this feature, if it's a part of iOS 10, makes it one step closer to doing just that.

    Make 3D touch relevant

    3D Touch made its debut with the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, and at first it was a little underwhelming. More apps now use it, but it could still stand to have a better reason to exist.

    Control Center is exactly where this Force Touch-like technology should head next. Pressing the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on-screen button should pop up the respective settings menus. Apple has done such a good job over the years by sliding opaque menus into view without requiring you to exit apps. These Control Center buttons should follow the very same principle.



    There are also rumors that Apple may get rid of the home button with an on-screen button (sort of like on some Androids) that uses 3D Touch.

    Customizable Control Center

    While 3D Touch would go nicely with Control Center, it'd also be clever to have the entire menu overlay become customizable. Right now, everything's set in stone by Apple. Instead of forcing everyone to have the Clock icon be a shortcut to the time, why can't I make that go to the stopwatch? Why can't the calculator icon be swapped out for a gallery shortcut?



    These are some of the requests we've been hearing from Apple users since Control Center made its debut in iOS 7 back in 2013. It's about time Apple put them into action.

    iOS 10 Touch ID

    Touch ID works really well. It's faster than ever on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, and it's really accurate. But is it too quick for its own good? That's what I've been hearing from users of Apple's new smartphones. They habitually light up their phones with the home button, only to have their notifications vanish.

    iOS 9 made notifications easier to view in the pulldown menu by sorting them in chronological order (not by group), but an easier way to wake the phone may be in order.

    LG and HTC use a double tap the screen to wake method that makes the entire display a big button. That would solve this problem for Apple, and we're looking for hints of that in iOS 10 in advance of the iPhone 7 launch. Jailbreaking developers have also actioned this so Apple may follow this step.

    iOS 10 features, on the other hand, remain a mystery with the exception of the solid-sounding Siri voicemail lead. There's definitely more to come about of WWDC 2016 in June.

    Apple's still has a few months to go before it's expected to unveil the software and three months after that to finalize everything.

    We want to know what you expect out of iOS 10?

      Themes and a theme store would be nice. Doubt it will ever happen though.

      Apple would make a killing with a theme store! I don't know why they just don't do it?

      iOS will be released and there's still no jailbreak for iOS 9.2.

      Great, my iPad2 already runs like crap and keeps randomly resetting. Now apparently it's iOS 10 compatible, running the risk of me accidentally updating and the thing running even slower. There has to be a way to downgrade to iOS8 or 7! :-(

      I just want to see the code refined. It's all great to have new features but I'd rather have a bug free phone. iOS9 (and OS X for that matter) has lost its reliability. I wonder whether it's possible for apples quality control to go back to what it once was, or are they eventually going to go the way of Microsoft and their Vista.

      oh there is a jailbreak already out there just not released, they don't want to have to recode one, they want to reuse the exploit on iOS10, make the jailbreak that much faster upon release date, say a month instead of 3-4 months

      I guess it's the littlest things that mainly use the jailbreak for which is whether or not I want to see the status bar and or a minimal one. Hide or see certain elements.

      Mostly I'd like to see deeper integration of 3D Touch into more features throughout iOS, Touch ID being used for unlocking your Mac over a Bluetooth connection similarly to how MacID does would be cool too, and improved use of the haptic vibration mechanism would also be cool.

      Cook said the company is working on a way to remove stock apps users don't want, so hopefully that makes its way to iOS soon as well.

      And here goes my question:Why do we need to remove stock apps?all looks like crap so what would be the point on that for that feature?

      Remove all animations that were added with iOS 7. So iOS is faster and snappy similar to iOS 6.
