iOS 10 RELEASE DATE: WHEN IS IT COMING OUT?
This is probably the easiest thing to predict. Following on from the usual release schedule of the past few years, we would expect to see iOS 10 ready and available to download towards the end of September. Probably on the same week as the iPhone 7 hits.
iOS 10: what we want to see
iOS 10 should be next for Apple, as it launched iOS 9.3 this week. Look for hints of an iOS 10 beta in the next three months.
Apple's iOS 10 update is the milestone software version for the iPhone and iPad, and its release date is currently three months away, according to the company's routine schedule.
Downloading the iOS 10 beta this summer and the final release a few weeks later won't end up being a big surprise, but where Apple takes the mobile operating system is still a mystery.
We're just now reporting on the first iOS 10 update rumors, including new interface and app features that haven't been pushed out to your iPhone 6S and iPad Pro 12.9 as part of iOS 9.3.
Apple is preparing the redesigned iPhone 7, according to the latest leaks, and that means the interface may take on a few surprises. Here's what we've heard and want.
iOS 10 Might Introduce a New Feature We’ve All Been Waiting For:
CEO Tim Cook last year confirmed Apple engineers were "looking into" the possibility
Multiple users support is specially useful for iPad users. It will let users use a single gadget which is basically very convenient in the household environment. Multiple users can create different accounts, no one can get access to the personal document of the other user. This feature is already present on the latest Android platform, so we are expecting this feature to be integrated in the next generation iOS platform as well. If this feature is incorporated in iOS 10, then iPads will also become the first choice of the professionals in different fields.
Every year Siri is being updated by Apple so we are expecting Apple to follow the same trend even today. Rumor has it that iOS 10’s Siri will have the capacity to transcribe voice message so that users can read the message instead of hearing it. Moreover, there are also rumors that if an user is not picking up the call, then Siri can tell the caller the reason behind that.
More Options for Controlling Volume
If you watch a video on your iPhone or iPad, then you have to first turn on the video and then control its volume. In iOS 9, there are different options for controlling the volume of the video or any other media. This is really bothersome specially if you have started up YouTube in the middle of the night or in a public place. We are expecting iOS 10 to come with different options to control volume for different kinds of media. This will be really helpful for the users.
Touch ID of iOS 9 is definitely much better in comparison to the previous version of the software. However, it has become so quick that it becomes difficult for users to respond so quickly. So Apple developers need to slow down the speed of its Touch ID. We have heard Apple users complaining that the notifications shown on the home screen disappear almost instantly when the screen is activated. So this problem needs to be addressed in the next generation platform so that the users can use their phone with ease.
Modifiable Control Center
The default control center of iOS 9 needs to be modified so that users will have the option of customizing it according the needs of the users. All the icons like watch, phone mode and others are present in the control center and all of that is not needed by us. Therefore, we would be happy to see a customizable control center so that we can choose the apps we want to see their according to our needs.
Innovations In 3D Touch
Though at first users could not understand the importance of the 3D Touch feature but when it was made available to different apps of the phone, then they came to realize the importance of the app. Now we would also like to see the 3D Touch feature extended to the control center of the software. If this feature is being extended to the control center, then by simply pressing the menus in the control center, we would get access to the settings of that particular menu. This would be really helpful for all the users.
Change Position of Apple News
The Apple News app of iOS 9 is really useful and the publications that are available on it are very good. However, one change that should be incorporated within it is its position. Apple News is in the right most menu of the screen and thus most users do not even know that this valuable app is present in their phone. It would better if this app is moved to the left menu, then it would be properly used by the users.
As far as iOS 10’s compatibility is concerned, we think that it will not be available to the five years old phones. But this OS will be available to all other iPhones and iPads that were released thereafter. Rumor has it that the new OS requires more space and RAM support which is not available in iPhone 4s and iPad 2. So it will not be possible to install this software in these gadgets. All the phones released thereafter, i.e. iPhone 5 series and iPhone 6 series can handle iOS 10 with ease. Even iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2,3 and 4 will also get access to the updated software.
iOS 10 beta:
The iOS 10 beta should be back given the initial rousing success of the iOS 9 beta to squash software glitches. That means you can anticipate three ways to download the operating system update once iOS 10 becomes available.
Apple Developer Program members will be the first to install iOS 10, likely in June. That requires enrolling in the official developer program and paying a fee.
Since everyone wants everything for free these days, you can wait a few weeks, typically in July, to test out iOS 10 early via the public beta. It requires jumping through some hoops on Apple's website, but registration takes no more than a few minutes of your time.
The iOS 9 beta program was more unfinished than it was buggy. I counted just a few missing features, not glitches, so it wasn't a hassle to download a year ago. And it was free and an over-the-air update, so it's a friendly middle ground if you want to try iOS 10 before most everyone else.
iOS 10 compatibility
Amazingly, iOS 9 didn't cut anyone out of the mix when the update rolled out to devices in September. The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 still work with the latest operating system update.
That may not happen again given the simple fact that iOS 10 may require more than 512MB of RAM.
We really thought both devices would be axed when the iOS 9 update became available. Because these Apple devices are going to be five years old by the time iOS 10 comes out, we think it's time to put the clinging-to-life 30-pin dock-equipped phone and tablet to rest.
Expect the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and the bigger iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 6 Plus to handle iOS 10 without a hitch. Add the new iPhone SE to the roster, too.
Same goes for the iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and maybe even the original iPad mini. Also, not to be forgotten, the iPod Touch 6th gen should be fine.
