Apple Brings You iOS 10 – Their Biggest Release Ever

Major changes are coming your way, Apple users! The multinational tech company just revealed their latest upgrade for the iOS 10, and they described it as their “biggest release ever.”

The when, how, and what of iOS 10

When will we get our hands on it?

Developers have had access to the latest version last June 13, 2016, during Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. Beta testers will get to try its features on July. The stable version of iOS 10 will be made available to the public by September, along with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Make sure to clear up some apps if your storage is almost full. Don’t fret, Apple also added an option for iOS 10 users to uninstall the default Apple applications and we also won’t be seeing Game Center anymore. Apple has been working on making their OS updates smaller. iOS 8 was 4.5 GB while iOS 9 was around 1.3 GB, we’ll be expecting the latest update to be more or less similar to the storage needed with iOS 9.

The upgrade will surely be free for Apple users but sadly, only the latest devices will have the chance to experience the change. iOS 10 will be readily made available for the iPhone 5 and later, iPad mini 2 and later, iPad 4 and later, and the 6th generation iPod touch.

What can we expect from the new release?

A lot! Apple has been working on this upgrade for quite a long time and they surely don’t want to disappoint their loyal users. Here are some of the new features Apple will let you use in a couple of months.
