#iOS10 #EmojiOSCall It EmojiOS: iOS 10 Update Will Be Released This Fall, Apple Announces Tentpole Features : iOS 10 will be released this Fall, according to the announcement Apple made earlier today at their annual developer’s conference. Promising it was going to be a big one, Apple described 10 new features that it hopes will set this iOS generation apart from its predecessors.

These 10 new features have a whole host of smaller functionality wrapped up within each, but the tentpoles Apple described include updates to:

  1. User Experience
  2. Siri
  3. Quicktype
  4. Photos/Memories
  5. Maps Update
  6. Apple Music
  7. Apple News
  8. Homekit
  9. Phone services
  10. Messages

User Experience-wise, the iPhone lockscreen has been redesigned. Notifications will no longer darken the wallpaper, and the lock screen will activate when the iPhone is picked up.

Third-party apps will be able to interact with 3D Touch from this screen far more than currently possible with iOS 9. This widgets — which allow you to 3D Touch an Uber notification, for example, and see where the car is in real time — are part of an overall revamped control center, one designed with 3D Touch in mind.

Siri ’s API has been opened up to third-party developers, which will have huge ramifications on your daily life come this fall. While Apple used sending a message via WeChat as their example, this functionality means that Siri will now be able to do things like play a song from Spotify, or even Hype Machine.
