What’s new in iOS 10?
When it unveiled the new iOS at its June developer conference, Apple said it was one of the biggest updates to its mobile operating system in its history.
With it, the company is betting big on artificial intelligence: photos, maps, and the keyboard are being made more intelligent with baked-in deep learning.
iOS 10 will also come with, for the first time, the ability to delete Apple’s default applications – meaning Stocks, iBooks, iCloud and more don’t have to clog-up precious homepage space. The update also sees a redesigned Apple News and Apple Music apps, bigger emoji, and a bedtime alarm.
