During Apple’s WWDC 2016 keynotes, the Cupertino based company highlighted some of the new features for the highly anticipated iOS 10.
The new operating system will now give users the ability to delete Apple’s built-in apps such as Maps, Music, Notes, Videos, etc. and still have the ability to download them again if they desire.
On Apple’s support page, the company published a help page about removing built-in apps. When built-in apps are removed from the Home screen, related user data and configuration files will also be removed. This means that if a user removes Music, he or she will lose it inside CarPlay.
Apple Music will now sport a clean and user-friendly interface. A new tab has been added for downloading music, and a For You section provides users with a new playlist of music daily.
Notifications got a new cleaner look, not to mention users will be able to respond to a message, view photos and videos from notifications by using the Touch ID.
The Photos apps has been updated and now features face recognition, object recognition, and can group/sort photos by person, date, and place.
As for Siri, the digital helper will work with different apps in the App Store, so users can book a ride, and send money. In addition, Siri will be able to give someone your exact location if someone asks where you are.
A couple of other features include the ability to change the message bubbles, sending messages in your own handwriting, adding stickers on top of bubbles or photos, larger emojis, the ability to make reservations within Maps, the Phone app will get a voicemail transcription and the News app will sort news into different sections and includes support for subscriptions.
We can expect iOS 10 to be released this upcoming fall. We’ll keep you posted on some of the new tricks and updates Apple has in store for us as the WWDC continues.
