IOS 10.1, 10.2 & 10.3 UPDATE

Apple's iOS 10 update for your iPhone and iPad really lives up to the software version number, bringing major changes to your phone and tablet.
Recognizing  portions of the interface is difficult; that's how different things are. But don't worry, almost all of the new iOS 10 features are for the best  and  free to download from ‘www.iclarified.com’.

IOS 10 launched alongside watchOS 3 for the Apple Watch last September, and just before macOS for MacBook Pro 2016 in October, after they all made their big debut at WWDC 2016 in June.
We've been playing with the new iPhone and iPad software since the iOS 10 beta stage, and we're still discovering new features with the new iOS 10.3 beta 5.
You'll need some time to wrap your head around the new functionality of this mobile operating system, so we went ahead of broke it down for you. Here's what we've learned about iOS 10 through iOS 10.3 beta

IOS 10 isn't yet done, but Apple is already teasing iOS 11 ahead of the WWDC 2017 keynote. The event kicks off on June 5 in San Jose, California.
That's when you can expect your first glimpse at iOS 11 features and the official iOS 11 beta, as well as a possible watchOS 4, macOS 10.13 and tvOS 2.

We envisage more tablet-focused software tweaks, especially as the iPad Pro 2launch date is widely rumored happen anywhere from April to September with the iPhone 8.
However, before all of that transpires, we're due to get one more big update – iOS 10.3. Let's start there and work our way backward on all iOS 10 features.

IOS 10.3 beta 5 is out for developers, beta 4 for public testers
Adds a Find My AirPods feature to the Find My iPhone app
Allegedly getting 'Theater Mode' from watchOS 3
Your iPhone is about to change yet again, as Apple just launched iOS 10.3 public beta 3. It's an incremental update, but an important one for AirPods owners.

The new  feature helps you track down your new Apple wireless earbuds case. It also plays music through each AirPods in case you lose one.
So far, this is the only major improvement we see in iOS 10.3. However, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners are rumored to get the new Theater Mode.

Theater mode, on watchOS 3 at least, turns off the lift-to-wake feature off on the Apple Watch. This could be marginally beneficial on an iPhone, too.
If Apple does have an early spring event to launch the rumored iPad Pro 2, we could see the final version of iOS 10.3 be unveiled then, too.
Just be warned: iOS 10.3 beta is still unfinished software. We've experience a few screen glitches and random resets with it. None of it's been a deal-breaker for willing testers, but you should know this in advance.

Additional camera and TV app settings.
Celebration and Love message effects and three new wallpapers.
Over 70 new emojis like shrug and fingers crossed.

IOS 10.2 debuted over 70 new emoji with the adoption of Unicode 9 characters. Your iPhone is now the shortest way to express a 'shrug' and 'fingers crossed.'
Hate constantly having to fiddle with camera setting each time they reset upon closing the app? Well, there's a new configuration that lets you preserve them.
The 'Preserve Settings' camera sub menu lets you lock in the camera mode (such as video, square, portrait), the photo filter (like chrome, mono and instant), and Live Photo (in case you want it off by default).

IOS 10.2 also adds features of a new 'Celebration' and 'Love' full-screen message effects. It also adds three new wallpapers of different colored droplets. They're artsy, but not groundbreaking.
There's a new pre-loaded app from Apple and good news: you probably won't want to immediately delete this one. It's the all-new TV app.
Apple's TV app is supposed to replace the neglected Videos app (but for some users, both apps are present). There's no need for two now. The new app added our one and only TV show episode (a free iTunes promo from 2009) that 'Videos' had been carrying around. That tells you something about its past usefulness.
There's actually a lot more to the all-encompassing TV app. Behind in scenes, there's also a new settings menu for 'TV Provider.' It's designed to let the TV app pull from subscription services like Dish and Sling TV.

The new TV app delivers TV content no matter where it's sourced from. It really breaks down the walls between siloed video apps on your iOS device.
There's no Netflix channel in the 'Store' tab, but you can add individual Netflix shows through the 'Search' tab. Just search 'Black Mirror' and you'll see a list of all three seasons that lead to any episode you want in Netflix.

iOS 10.1 introduced Portrait Mode photos on iPhone 7 Plus
Also added message replay functions and fixes bugs
But iOS 10.1.1 users reported severe battery drain
Although Apple launches iOS 10 right on the nose on Tuesday, September 13 at 10am Pacific, it returned with another set of tweaks just 41 days later.
Portrait Mode is the highlight of iOS 10.1, but it can only be enjoyed by iPhone 7 Plus owners since it requires the rear dual-lens camera.
It's a special camera mode within the default app that adds a distinct bokeh effect, which blurs the background and really accentuates on your subject.
Correctly framing shots in iOS 10.1 Portrait Mode can be difficult. This software-driven bokeh is picky about lighting (dimly lit environments just don't work) and subject distance (not too far, but, hey, not too close either).
It can also be difficult to adjust to iOS 10.1 Portrait Mode because the camera angle of view is extremely cropped, tighter than when recording video. Take two steps back from where you normally shoot photos.
You can really tell the difference because Portrait Mode saves both the bokeh and non-bokeh photos to your camera roll for a quick comparison.
Portrait Mode is limited to the iPhone 7 Plus, but the 1.95GB over-the-air update is recommended for everyone else, too. Apple has fixed a handful of iOS 10 problems, as noted in the iOS 10.1.1 release notes.
All iOS 10 devices can now replay message animations in iOS 10.1.1. In case you miss a friend's iMessage with balloons or lasers, it can be replayed. Hooray! [Sent with Fireworks].
iOS 10.1 isn't without its share of problems, including extreme battery draining issues. We've experienced – and users have reported worse battery life than normal. This appears to be limited to iOS 10.1.1, which is all the more reason to take a leap of faith and update to the iOS 10.2 beta.
TechRadar's take: Download iOS 10.1 (or iOS 10.2 now), especially if you have an iPhone 7 Plus. Its new Portrait Mode adds an extra layer to the camera app, giving you photos that literally stand out from the new and also stunningGoogle Pixel and Google Pixel XL camera. Just avoid iOS 10.1.1.

Works with iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad mini 2 and iPod touch 6th gen or higher
All 30-pin dock devices are out. Lightning or nothing!
iOS 10 is available on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, unless of course you have an age-old phone or tablet that still uses the 30-pin dock connector or an older iPad mini or iPod touch.
That's where Apple draws the line in the sand for 2016. Its forthcoming mobile operating system update won't support for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The iPad mini and iPod touch 5th gen are the outliers that won't work either despite having Lightning. Time to upgrade.
It's not a big surprise. In addition many of them not lightning connections, these devices include 512MB of RAM and it's miraculous that they even supported iOS 9 when we thought they'd be axed from that update last year.iOS 9.3 is their software swan song.

Just pick up your iPhone and it'll wake up
Notifications don't vanish when brushing up against Touch ID
Apple redesigned the iPhone and iPad lockscreen, giving us the biggest revision since the first iPhone nine years ago. Slide to unlock is gone and replaced with simple instructions: "Press Home to open."

No need to exit the homescreen for quick reads and replies
Works with third-party apps like Uber and Apple Home devices
You'll see that notifications are broken up into bubbles now and use 3D Touch to show hidden menu actions - just hard press on a calendar invite alert and you'll be able to accept or decline it.
3D Touch-enabled iOS 10 notifications work even better for Messages. You can immediately respond to messages as soon as you pick up your phone, without ever leaving the lockscreen. It's all done inline.
No more digging around the home screen and layers of app menus to check vital information. If you have a doorbell camera notification, you can see who's at the front door, use the intercom or unlock the door.

Vanquish all notifications at once with 3D Touch. That's it.
What may be the best change to iOS 10 notifications is the ability to clear all of your old notifications with 3D Touch. Swiping them away one by one or dismissing them in groups is a time-consuming mess in iOS 9.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are water-resistant, but all other iPhones are not
iOS 10 will warn of possible water damage and provide instructions
Only the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are water-resistant, but Apple hasn't made a fully waterproof iPhone. So it's making it easier to avoid potential water damage with the iOS 10 update.

You don't have to talk like a robot to your robot phone
Two billion requests a week go through Siri, and it's now going to do "so much more," according to Apple. With that, they announced that iOS 10 will open up Siri to third-party developers.
Now you'll be able to ask Siri things like, "Send a WeChat to Nancy saying I'll be five minutes late.'" It can be said variety of ways and still understood by the now-smarter Siri.
In (very literal) other words, Siri also works just fine if you say it like "Tell Nancy I'll be five minutes late with WeChat," and even "Siri, can you shoot a message on WeChat and say I'll be five minutes late?"
Siri for iOS 10, all of a sudden, is going to be a whole lot less "Sorry..." for miscues. This is thanks to what Apple calls an "intense API," which even functions in this new way in its multiple languages.
TechRadar's take: Siri is less frustrating to use in iOS 10. Saying what you want however you want to your personal assistant means you're likely to get results the first time around.

Siri now works with more third-party apps, not just Apple's apps
WhatsApp, Uber and MapMyRun can now use Siri, for example
Besides WeChat, Siri is ready for other chat apps, like WhatsApps and Slack, and ride hailing services like Uber, Lyft and Didi in China (which Apple invested in recently).
Searching photos through apps like Shutterfly and Pinterest can be done with your voice thanks to Siri, and you can start, pause and stop fitness workouts with MapMyRun, Runtastic and RunKeeper.
Siri can also help you send money to friends with Number26, Square and Alipay, or start a VoIP call to tell your friend why you're not paying them on time via Cisco Spark, Vonage and Skype.
This makes Siri much more useful now that Apple's personal assistant has broken free of pre-loaded apps, and makes driving a tiny bit safer thanks to messaging and VoIP integration for Apple CarPlay.
 Developers are just starting to take advantage of Siri, and it's beneficial. It's not game changing just yet, but has the potential to drive more voice-controlled automation by the time iOS 11 launches

Makes next-word suggestions based on whole sentence context
Suggests address, calendar appointments and current locations
Apple's on-screen QuickType keyboard can intelligently tell the difference between what you're saying and what computers usually think you're saying (but not) thanks to more advanced Siri intelligence.
