The days of beta testing of iOS 10 are finally over, as Apple has finally released the official version of its iOS 10 and watchOS 3. The biggest update to the iOS can now easily be downloaded by accessing the general tab present in the settings of compatible Apple devices. The update brings in a lot of features, most prominent of which is the Siri digital assistant overhaul and a new messaging interface that is bundled in the iMessage application.
In case you are a proud user of the Mac, Apple is also bundling in a universal clipboard in the iOS 10 which would allow you to copy content like text and images in your iPhone while pasting it on your Mac device and vice versa. It should be noted that this feature would not require the installation of any third party application. Apple is also introducing a lift to wake feature in the operating system which would allow you to pick up your device from the table or from the pocket and get a glimpse of your lock screen and notifications.
In terms of UI, the most prominent changes are visible on the lock screen of the device with Apple expanding the usage of widgets and providing the ability to interact with these by deploying the 3D Touch. Notification content would also be much richer with 3D Touch as Apple is allowing direct response to alerts without opening the application entirely.
In other departments, Apple has tried hard to enhance their built-in applications while also providing users with the ability to hide these applications. Messages have been upgraded to allow application support and bigger emojis. The application support would allow developers to integrate their applications into the messaging app. Apple has also upgraded the Maps application to provide nearby suggestions, traffic information and a feature to find the place where you parked your car. Apple Music has also been redesigned from the scratch getting a feature for integration of lyrics. This and much more awaits in the new iOS 10.
WatchOS 3 on the other hand has received major upgrades too, with applications loading much faster and the side button allowing access to favorite applications. Further, hand-drawn replies have also been bundled in the new OS and a Breathe application has also been integrated with the aim to remind you to relax.
