List of iOS 10 Features

Apple has released the dates for WWDC 2016 which will take place on June 13, 2016, to June 17, 2016, in San Francisco. That means we only have to wait a few weeks before Apple reveals iOS 10 features for the iOS app developers.

The iOS 10 beta will be available to iPhone app developers at the same time, while public beta may launch in July, as they did it same for the iOS 9. You will be able to download iOS 10 beta in June 2016 & final release may take place in September.

I have collected several pieces of data that talk about apple iOS 10 features and gathered them together. This will give you an idea about the expected features of iOS 10.

iOS 10 Compatibility

Surprisingly, iPhone 4S & iPad 2 will still work with new OS update. However, iOS 10 features may require RAM more than 512 MB. Other iPhone models like iPhone 6S, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 6S plus will be able to handle iOS 10 without any hassle. Same will happen to the iPad Pro 9.7, 12.9, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad 4, iPad mini 2. If your smartphone has got upgraded to iOS 8, then it is also compatible with iOS 10 features with iPhone. Therefore, without any investment on the flagship smartphone, you can have the chance to use the latest iOS software version.

Siri and Voicemails

Voice mail ios 10

It is fully expected that Apple will improve its voice assistant “Siri” because every year Apple does so. But this time it is expected that Siri will handle your voicemails. One of the big iOS 10 rumors is that Siri will be able to tell the caller why you can’t pick up the phone & even transcribe voicemail messages so you can read it further.

Apple will send the voice data to company servers, where Siri will convert the words into text. iCloud voicemail will function in the same way, sending the voicemails to apple, & Siri will transcribe and make available to your iPhone. It is estimated that it will be a major feature of upcoming iOS 10.

Apple Home Kit

Your home is going to become advanced & fully technical with iOS 10 device. Apple Home’s app will work with your home bulbs, doorbells, thermostats, door locks & all sorts of tech gadgets. You will be able to manage your appliances & gadgets with iOS 10. Apple is going to make the home app main feature for iOS 10 users.

Smarter Messaging App

When you use your phone, messaging is a task that you do the most. Thus, Apple must realize the significance of messaging & come up with an advanced messaging feature in iOS 10.

For example, Cola which is the world’s first messaging OS, designing to make messaging more powerful, easy for users & users will able to chat in a hassle free way without leaving a conversation in the middle.

Cola is available on iOS & now planning to expand the capabilities of text messages. So apple may implement some new features of cola’s work in iOS 10 like sharing live maps that update their location & many other features that make messaging a great experience.
