iOS 10 uses on-device intelligence to identify the people, objects and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions. And when you do share sensitive data with Apple for services like Siri and Maps, it’s always encrypted and never used to build user profiles.
Express yourself in bold new ways in Messages. Find your route with beautifully redesigned Maps. Relive memories like never before in Photos. And use the power of Siri in more apps than ever. There’s so much to say about iOS 10 — here are just a few of our favorite things.
Write it yourself : Send a message in your own handwriting. Your friends will see it animate, just as ink flows on paper.
Read receipts by conversation in iMessages
How you say it : Change the way your message bubbles look. Say it proud. Say it loud. Or whisper it.
Invisible Ink : Send a message or photo that remains hidden, then simply swipe to reveal it.
Celebration Mode : Say things like “Happy Birthday!” or “Congratulations!” with animations that take over the entire screen.
Taback : Just tap to send one of six quick responses that let people know what you’re thinking.
Personal Touch : Send fireballs, heartbeats, sketches, and more. You can even draw over videos.
Stickers : Slap them on top of bubbles, dress up a photo, or even put one on another sticker. Available in the new App Store for iMessage.
Tap to replace Emoji : Swap out words with emoji — all with a simple touch. That’s something to smile about.
iMessage App : Easily access your favorite apps to create and share content, make payments, and more, without leaving Messages.
Siri for Apps : Siri works with your favorite apps from the App Store, so you can ask it to book a ride through Lyft, or send money to someone with Square.
Maps and Reservations : Book a table through apps like OpenTable, and a ride with Uber — all within Maps.
Smarter Maps : Maps can make proactive suggestions for where you’re likely to go and the fastest way to get there.
Search on the Route : See what’s around the corner and easily find the closest places for gas, food, or coffee. Maps even tells you how much extra time it will take to arrive.
Smart Home App : The new Home app lets you turn on lights, unlock doors, and even raise your window shades — all at once if you like.
Music Redesigned : The simple, intuitive design makes it even easier to enjoy your favorite songs. You can also view the lyrics while you’re listening to them.
Raise to wake : Simply pick up your iPhone to wake it up. Your notifications will be there waiting for you.
Touch and Go : Use 3D Touch in apps like Calendar, Weather, and Stocks for a quick glance at the information you need.
Notification : View photos and videos or respond to a message right in your notifications.
Contextual Predictions : Typing is quicker and easier than ever. When you type something like “I’m available at,” the free time in your calendar pops up as an option.
Multi Lingual Typing : Now you can type in two languages at the same time without having to switch between keyboards.
News App : Easily find the stories that matter to you most, in distinct sections of the beautifully redesigned News app.
Pic Search : Search your photos by the people or things in them, like a beach, a football game, or a puppy. The Photos app can help you rediscover cherished memories — like a weekend hike or your baby’s first birthday — and even create beautiful movies out of them.
Apple pay on Web : Shopping online is now faster, safer, and more private than ever. Just browse, then pay in your browser.
