So Apple reeled out the features that will come with the new iOS 10 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in California. In what, Apple CEO, Tim Cook calls the biggest iteration to the popular brand’s iPhone operating software.
In a few months, the update will be coming to all devices via iTunes and the settings app at the same time. So what makes the iOS 10 different from the current iteration iOS 9.3.2? Well, we have made a roundup of the differences between the iOS 9.3.2, and the newly doled out features of the coming iOS 10.
Difference between iOS 9 and iOS 10
Perhaps one of the biggest announcements of the night was that Siri was now opened to third party apps and developers. This means the things you can do with Siri has grown exponentially.
In iOS 9, Siri predicted contacts and apps per time based on location and offered intelligible responses to queries. But with iOS 10 that has been extended. You can connect with other applications by requesting Siri do things on the apps. You can tell Siri to send a particular message to someone on Whatsapp, WeChat and Twitter after a particular time.
On iOS 9, when you are not logged into an app, any calls are received as notification only. In iOS 10 however, users can interact with apps from the home screen.
In essence, Apple has opened the core calling API to other applications and at such; you receive a Whatsapp or Skype call like a normal mobile phone call. This will make the user experience more fluid and intuitive. iOS 10 also comes with voicemail transcription – a text format of a received message.
iOS 10 is bringing with it bigger emojis, emoji prediction, handwriting – Scribbles – efficient access to the camera and other interface enhancing features that goes beyond the current minimalist and simple looking bubble chat of iOS 9.

With Google Maps dominance in the map solutions offering, iOS 10 has some features to try and close the gap. iOS 9 didn’t come with any major feature upgrade but the reverse is the case for iOS 10. The Map application in iOS 10 has a fresh look and sleeker features. It uses time and location to suggest places and routes it feels you need to know. Map also has live traffic, a zooming view, and easy-to-follow directions. Maps in iOS 10 will also be able to scan your Calendar app for the places you’re meant to go.
There’ll definitely be huge differences in the two iOSes when the Photos app is concerned. First off, in iOS 10, there’ll be facial recognition and object recognition, which means your photos, can recognize faces, animals and objects too. Tim Cook speaking says the artificial intelligence processing to make this happen is done locally – on the phone, and that there’s no need of transferring data to the clouds and risk a breach of your privacy.
Additionally, the photos app can search the photo library using different words like “fire”, “water” etc. There’s also a new “Memories” tab which will collate pictures taken in the same place, and with the same people, giving a new dimension to going down memory lane.
Apple music now sports a new user interface that replaces the old interface that had users complaining of difficulty while using. Seems Apple has listened. Also, you can now sing along to your favorite tunes as the new update brings with it a lyrics window, where you can see the wordings of a song and sign along.
Old features such as “Recently Added” and “Recently Played sections” have made a comeback from the dead. What were they thinking before to have removed it? This makes the iOS 10 better for music enthusiasts than the iOS 9.
The biggest update here is a new feature that should have always been there – a subscription service. With this, users can read all news media within the App itself. You can also get notifications on your lock screen for breaking news, current updates of past events, and other events. It is an overhaul to what is presently available in iOS 9.
Home now has its own app
Another new feature to the iOS 10 that different from the iOS 9 iteration is the addition of the stand-alone “Home” app. It will aid user automation – control things with one click of a button, rather than opening different apps to achieve the same purpose. Although it comes with more apps, some of these apps can be deleted, which is not obtainable with the iOS 9 software.
iOS 9 came to devices from 4S and above for iPhones, iPad 2 up for iPads, all iPad minis and the 5th generation iPod touch. But the iOS 10 only supports from iPhone 5 up, iPad 4 and up and 6th generation of iPod touch.
All the above is according to Apple’s statement, but guess we will have to wait if iOS 10 truly lives up to expectation.
