Four apps redesigned from scratch
On no other occasion have we seen so many apps redesigned from scratch. Three of them you will be able to use in your daily life. The first one is Apple Music . It was released last year and many users complained that it was complex to use. With iOS 10 it has been completely redesigned to offer a more fluid experience with less touches.
Maps is the second app in which you will notice improvements . Here Apple has made an effort to simplify and make the most used options bigger, while improving turn-by-turn navigation. From now on, third party apps can be used with Maps without having to go to another app. For example, Uber or restaurant booking apps.
Messages is one of the great new features of iOS 10 . Apps (or bots) come into your conversations, where you can do things as simple as sending classic Mac icon stickers or more complex ones like sharing the music you’re listening to. Plus, there’s a new option to send each message in a different style: with invisible ink, in a whisper, by shouting, or as a punch on the table.
Finally, Apple News also adopts a design similar to that of Apple Music. Although it is not yet activated in a native way outside the USA.
New albums and features in Photos
As some of you may know, Photos is one of my favorite iOS 10 apps. The abundance of photos on our devices had become a problem, because of the difficulty to visualize them and to find the best memories . Apple fixes it with two new features: Memories and People.
In Memories, our iPhone or iPad with iOS 10 will offer us a collection of photos and videos with a specific theme. A date, a place or a person. In these memories, a movie will appear similar to the iMovie trailers but generated automatically. You can adjust the duration, music, photos and videos that appear in it . This is a great feature.
Apple has used some of its new machine learning technology ( machine learning for those interested) to identify people in your photos. So in the People album, the photos that Apple thinks are the same person will be grouped together. It will be our job to name these groups of photos, but over time it will do so automatically.

By accessing each group of photos, you can zoom in to see where the person in question is located. In the time I’ve been using this function I’ve been surprised by its ability to recognize faces, something that is done on the iPhone itself connected to the stream and without uploading the photos to the cloud.
New control center
The iOS 10 Control Center on the iPhone undergoes a major change. It is now divided into two tabs , as shown in the image above. Apple has grouped numerous buttons into one tab, to leave the audio and video playback controls on the right. From this tab we will also access the devices that can be connected via AirPlay to our iPhone.
iOS 10 Keyboard Enhancements
A feature that will please those who have more than one dictionary installed on their device. Now, you can type in English without the Spanish keyboard constantly correcting your text. Keyboard suggestions are also more accurate, offering everything from sharing contacts to suggesting emojis based on what you type.
Siri integrates with third-party apps
Siri is also open to other developers, although not to all app categories. For example, order an Uber, send a message through WhatsApp or any messaging app other than iMessage, pay a friend, search for photos in third-party apps and initiate VoIP calls. Although these features are highly dependent on each developer to integrate them into their app.
Remove standard apps in iOS
Finally, many users wanted to get rid of standard apps like Bolsa or Consejos, which only took up space on their screens. However, this does not eliminate them completely but only hides them. It is also not possible to remove some of the most important ones. To get them back on your device you will have to access the App Store, search for them and download them.
