An important renovation to iOS operating system had been rolled out by Apple around three years back which was designed by John Ive, Apple’s design chief and the iOS 7 had brought in a completely new experience for the users of iOS. This was in the form of flattened app icons, modern look as well as touch, to new experience which had been seen in Google pursuing in its latest updates on Android.

Apple had gone ahead with the new design in spite of iOS 7 being criticised for being ridiculously colourful as well as slow. The latest couple of updates, iOS 8 and iOS 9, were built on iOS 7 with minor tweaks, enhancements together with new features though at the same time kept the general look as well as the touch somewhat the same.

Apple had rolled out the iOS 10 update for its well-matched iOS devices and like the iOS 7, the iOS 10 of Apple tends to bring in main alterations in the iOS or according to the Tim Cooks’ words that it is `the mother of all releases’.The iOS 10 had been announced and revealed at WWDC 2016 in June, had been released to app developers as a beta testing form.

Ecosystem to Third Party Developers

Shortly thereafter it had been released to non-developer beta testers as portion of the public beta. From then onwards, Apple had made attempt to progressively release efficient beta forms of iOS 10.Apple has taken a massive step ahead with its iOS 10 by opening its ecosystem to third party developers. Moreover, WhatsApp and Truecaller have also joined it with more likely to join in, in the near future.

The iOS 10 for Apple could be the biggest update so far. The iOS 10 seems to be more of a developed approach from Apple, right from opening the OS to third party developers to small thing such as interactive notifications care together with much more customizable widgets that could probably realize the importance of opening up its ecosystem.

 Apple has mentioned that it has redesigned the experience of the lock screen. To unlock the smartphone one needs to `Press home to unlock’ which means that you depend on the fingerprint scanner or passcode. You can modify it by going to Settings> Accessibility> Home button and toggle on the Rest finger to Open feature.

Apple – Focused on New Redesign/Tweaks

This will permit you in unlocking the phone by clicking the side lock/unlock button as well as resting finger on the home button instead of pressing it. However, this would only function on devices having Touch ID. Apple has focused on new redesigned or tweaked areas on the features of iOS 10.

The biggest change to Siri appears to be that Apple has opened it to third party developers which mean that one would be capable of activating non-Apple apps and operate through voice control. QuickType is a convenient and genuine time saver presently though simple. It will tend to be more proactive in bringing in data from the other apps, providing it as part of one’s reactions.

Maps in iOS 10 have a new design and like some of the other apps which have been refurbishedfor the update; it tends to look simpler and cleaner. According to Apple the controls seems to be easier for accessing.

Apple has Removed its Most Annoying Feature from iOS 10


Apple Confirms – Default Apps Can be Deleted

When faced with shortage of storage space, it tends to be quite frustrating. You are unable to take a photo or download a new song. You tend to be incapable of streaming anything since your phone seems to get too slow. Useless apps which are never used such as Wallet, Find Friends, Tips, and Stocks are not removable and are just there. Till now, Apple had announced a host of new features at the WWDC Conference, ranging from smarter Siri to bigger emojis. But what was not mentioned was the fact that you would soon be capable of deleting default apps in order to save space. The supporters of Apple had observed these default apps are now made available for download on the App store which means that beginning with iOS 10, Apple would be permitting iPhone and iPad users to delete any built-in apps which users may not need and download them again later if the need arises. Those who have downloaded the developer beta have tweeted the change, observing that a bunch of default apps like Weather, Music, Calendar, Mail and Stocks can now be deleted though there seems to be some exceptions, such as Messages, Photos, Camera, Health, Settings, Safari together with clock,that are still stuck probably since they seem to be too integral to the system.

Guidelines for Saving Space 

A full help page, had been released by Apple confirming the apps that could be removed from your home screen with the iOS 10 update. All these apps tend to use less than 150 MB and it is always good to avoid unwanted clutter on the home screen. The following are the guidelines to make space on your iPhone –

Know your stats

Under Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage, one can see precisely how much space is available and a list in descending order on which apps have taken the maximum space.

Stop Storing Texts

Texting could take up much space than one may realise, particularly if you tend to send a lot of photos and videos. Besides deleing threads, one could go to Settings > Messages > Keep Messages and select 30 days. Your iPhone tends to set it to Forever by default.

Getting Rid of Temporary Files 

It is essential to purge cookies, browsing data and your dingy browser history in Safari which can be done by going to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Date. This would instantly free up the much required space.

Beware of Internal Downloads

Those using Spotify or Podcast would observe that they seem to be the biggest offenders.Plenty of files downloads on the phone offline could utilise plenty of gigabytes of space. You could delete you may not needs or go to the app’s settings, de-selecting any option to download files for use whenever your phone seems to be in offline mode. You could also check through ebooks, notes and voice memos.

Scrap Photo Stream 

Photo Stream tends to automatically sync up your last 1000 photos across your devices which means that 1000 of the photos seems to be taking up double space. In order to turn this feature off, you could go to Settings> Photos & Camera and toggle off My Photo Stream.

Maintain a Regular `App Cleanse’

Maintain a monthly cleansing by going through and deleting any app you may not use or have forgotten that it is there and has been occupying valuable space.

Turn Off `Save Original Photos’ 

If you are utilising photo-based apps such as Instagram, there is no option to save whatever photos that are published to Camera Roll. In the case of Instagram, it is switched on automatically which is meaningless if the image is already uploaded. In order to turn this off, you could open the app and go to its Settings, turning off `Save Original Photos’.
