During Apple’s iPhone 7 event on Wednesday, the company also announced the official release of iOS 10, the newest version of the company’s mobile operating system that we were given a preview of at WWDC months ago.
Starting on September 13, all users will be able to get their hands on iOS 10 and all the goodies packed within it.
For those who may have forgotten just how good the update is, a quick reminder may be in order.
In iOS 10 you can use 3D Touch for shortcuts, and Messages includes new features like Invisible Ink, Handwriting, Digital Touch (something we saw early on in the Apple Watch), smart emoji predictions while typing and even image search to help you find just the right image to send.
Also refreshed in iOS 10 are Maps, Apple Music (which gets a very much needed simplified interface design), Spotlight search in any app and, wait for it, the ability to delete stock Apple apps (hallelujah!).
If you’re a beta user, you already know just how powerful the update is, but for everyone else, this refresh gives iOS devices a brand new look and feel that delivers on Apple’s longstanding commitment to ease of use interfaces mixed with next-gen software.
