iOS 10 Features We can expect
- Siri Will be Smarter and powerful
While Apple has made minor improvements to Siri over the years, it still feels limited compared to Google Now. Now, Apple is working on an SDK for Siri that should make it smarter and powerful. It is also expected to have better HomeKit integration.
- Standalone HomeKit Application
It is rumored that Apple will be launching a standalone HomeKit app with iOS 10. While this has been the focus for quite some time, Apple never got around to making a standalone application. Now, things might change. It will offer a better and easier way to control all your HomeKit enabled devices from one place.
- Revamped Apple Music
The revamped Apple Music is expected to have a redesigned user interface to make for a better display. It will make extensive use of 3D touch. The ‘For You’ section will have a simplified UI as well as provide lyrics integration.
- Photo App Revamp
With the current photo app being a little too clunky to use and navigate, it is expected to get a revamp with iOS 10. Major updates expected are annotation features like ability to add captions, draw shapes etc. The markup feature which is currently only available in the mail application could be integrated with the Photo app. A couple of pro-editing options are also expected.
- Improved iMessages
Apple is expected to make improvements to iMessages to keep up with other popular messaging services such as Whatsapp, Facebook messenger.
- Control Center Improvement
The control center has not seen much upgrades since its introduction in 2013. Major updates would include the ability to customize shortcuts as well as add additional shortcuts.
So, that is a few of the updates that are expected in iOS 10. We will bring you more updates and tweaks that you can expect from iOS 10 tomorrow!
