Here are iOS 10 beta download, features, and release date rumors that we know so far. Apple is expected to unveil iOS 10 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch at WWDC 2016.
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 Release Date
In a similar fashion to the initial beta download predictions above, Apple has historically been very predictable when it comes to making a major version of iOS publicly available. Going by that, we expect final version of iOS 10 going live around the world in the same week as Apple’s next-generation iPhone going on sale, which will be in September this year.
We will be continuously updating this post as we learn more about the upcoming rumored features for iOS 10, so keep checking back and stay tuned!
iOS 10 Features (Rumored)
From a purely visual and aesthetic standpoint, iOS 10 will likely be identical to what we currently have with iOS 9. Those that are secretly hoping for a huge aesthetic overhaul – like what we saw with the transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7 – are going to be left largely disappointed. But those who are more interested in new features than UI overhaul will be pleased to know that iOS 10 is rumored to bring a number of new features to the table.
The first one of those could be new emojis. As has been previously reported, an agreement by the Unicode Consortium could potentially pave the way for 74 additional emoji characters to find their way onto Apple’s iOS 10. Those new emoji characters have already been agreed on by the Consortium, and as such are all set to be featured in Unicode 9.0, schedule to be released mid-2016. Perfect timing for initial developer previews of iOS 10.
Apple Photos app in iOS 10 could bring back some much loved features from the iPhoto experience that was killed off by Apple. The level of integration is currently unknown, but could include tools such as having the ability to edit EXIF data directly, and being able to edit specific areas of a photo within the app. There’s also the possibility of Apple adding face detection in iOS Photos app, something which the Mac version of the app has but the iOS one doesn’t. In short, expect a big overhaul of Photos app in iOS 10.
iOS 10 wishlist: Features we hope will make it to iOS 10
We at Macworld UK put our heads together and thought about some of the features we’d like to see included in iOS 10, from small changes to completely new ideas – and here are our best.
Ability to change video resolution in-app:
One of the selling points of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is that they’re able to record in full 4K resolution at 30fps, as well as the standard 1080p at 60fps or 30fps. The only issue we have is that there is no easy way to change between the resolutions from within the Camera app, and we have to exit the app, head to Settings > Camera to be able to change it.
Certain situations, such as filming in low light, require a lower frame rate (less frames = more light captured) and changing it manually takes around 10-15 seconds, which isn’t ideal. We would love a way to quickly change the resolution and frame rate, possibly by tapping an icon in the Camera app. It’s a simple change to make, and would be largely appreciated by those that like to capture video on their iPhones.
View Favourites in Contacts app:
Another fairly simple change we’d like to see made in iOS 10 is the ability to view and edit the list of favourites, currently only found in the Phone app. It makes sense to be able to access your favourite contacts from within the Contacts app, and we’re not quite sure why Apple hasn’t yet added this functionality. Sometimes we want easy access to our contacts for other reasons, not just for calling!
Customise the Control Center:
The Control Center is one of the most underrated features of iOS, enabling easy access to various toggles and controls without having to open the Settings app. The only issue we have is that we can’t personalise any of the toggles, as we’d like to be able to swap out little-used toggles for shortcuts to apps/settings we frequently use. For example, we very rarely use the Control Center to access the Calculator app – we’d much prefer easy access to Twitter, for example.
While on the topic of the Control Center, we'd like to be able to quickly access the settings of each of the toggles with a force touch on the latest iPhones. For example, we’d like to be able to force press the Wi-Fi toggle to quickly access the Wi-Fi menu to connect to a new network.
