iOS 10 is dropping at some point today, and we think it's important you know exactly what you're letting yourself in for if you download it. From handwritten notes on iMessage to a Map that knows exactly where you want to go, here are 8 things you ought to know about the latest Apple update.
1. More Emoji Fun
Not only will predictive emoji's be an actual thing, but if you send more than three emojis in a message they become 3X supersized. For EMPHASIS.
As for the predictive thing, it'll only work if you have your predictive Apple keyboard switched on. Say you type the word 'car', Apple will then suggest you might want to use the emoji instead of the word.
2. Handwritten Notes
Take things back to the 20th century by sending your pals handwritten notes over iMessage, because when was the last time you even saw your handwriting?
3. Invisible ink
Alright, now this is seriously magical. Because we basically live at Hogwarts, messages will remain hidden to the viewer until someone swipes over them. It's a good way to ward off prying eyes until you can view your message in private.
4. iMessage App Store
Apple have seriously stepped up their iMessage game with a bunch of cute animations and stickers. To get some of the best ones, head over to the iMessage App Store and download your favourites.
5. Raise To Wake
An interesting feature. This basically means you only have to lift your phone for it to wake up - meaning you don't have to press the home screen button to get to your lock screen. Handy.
6. Better Maps
Apple have faced a bit of stick for not being as good as Google Maps in the past. But, with their recent update - which'll predict where users are trying to get to and route the way out for them, Apple have seriously stepped up their game.
7. Memories Slideshow Feature
This feature will gather up a load of your photos - say from a recent holiday you've been on - and create a movie slideshow within seconds. Oh, and you'll also be reminded of pictures from the past every now and again. Not sure if that's a good thing or not.
8. Delete Crappy Apps
That's right, you can finally delete Stocks, Wallet, Compass and more from your iPhone. Praise Jesus, hallelujah.
