Everything you love is now even better with iOS 10, our biggest release yet. Express yourself in bold new ways in Messages. Find your route with beautifully redesigned Maps. Relive memories like never before in Photos. And use the power of Siri in more apps than ever. There’s so much to say about iOS 10 — here are just a few of our favorite things.
Tap. Swipe. Scroll.
From the moment you pick up your iOS device, you’re up and running. Tap your favorite app and get right to work — or play. Swipe from the right side of the Lock screen to quickly pull up your camera. Scroll through thousands of photos in seconds. Everything about iOS is designed to look beautiful and work beautifully.
Nobody understands you quite like Siri.
Siri learns how you talk, not the other way around. Thanks to Apple-developed machine-learning technology, you can simply speak naturally. So whether you say “Get a Lyft to SFO” or “I’d like a ride to SFO using Lyft,” Siri will read you loud and clear.
Siri even works with your favorite apps.
You can ask Siri to send someone a payment using Square Cash, book a reservation through OpenTable, and much more. And the number of apps incorporating Siri is growing every day.
With sophisticated features like proactive suggestions, predictive typing, and everybody’s favorite personal assistant, Siri, iOS 10 makes everything you do easier, quicker, and more fun.
With an advanced fingerprint sensor that
instantly recognizes you, and software
designed to keep your payment
information private, shopping has never
been easier. Or safer.
The latest iPhone Retina displays can
distinguish between different levels of
pressure, revealing more options
depending on how deeply you press. So
you can do more with just a touch.
iOS knows what you want before you do.
Have your current location, recent addresses, contact information,
and more brought up
automatically. So when a friend
asks “Where are you?” you can
share your location with just a tap.
Maps can learn your daily routine, providing helpful suggestions for places you might like to visit
and the fastest way to get there.
For example, upcoming meetings on
your calendar are automatically
presented with suggested routes.
When you search your photo collection, Photos performs billions
of calculations to identify images
with the specific people, places,
and things you’re looking for.
Making it faster than ever to find your favorite memories.
iOS intelligently picks up on
scheduling details in your
conversations. So if you type
something like “I’m free today at,” you’re presented with available
times on your calendar.
iOS 10 can suggest apps you might like to use based on your location
and the time of day. When you
arrive at the gym, for example, iOS
may suggest your favorite
personal-training app to help you
get the most out of your workout.
Type in two languages at the same time without having to switch
keyboards. iOS recognizes any pair
of the following languages:
English, French, German, Italian,
Portuguese, and Spanish. It also
supports using English and
Your info. Safe and secure.
Your privacy always comes first. That’s why iOS 10 uses on-device intelligence to identify the people, objects, and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions. And when you do share sensitive data with Apple for services like Siri and Maps, it’s always encrypted and never used to build user profiles.
Privacy and security are at the core of everything we believe. And everything we make.
At Apple, protecting your information is something we build into our processes from the beginning. When we have an idea for a product, we find a way to make it that ensures your security and privacy. It’s a value we’re deeply committed to because your trust means everything to us.
iOS 10 for Business
iPhone and iPad have become the devices of choice at work simply because they’re the devices of choice in daily life. And it all gets better in iOS 10 with new security, productivity, and device management features.
Even stronger security.
The enterprise-grade security technologies built into iOS are even more powerful in iOS 10. We’ve expanded data protection to more apps and enabled finer control over mail encryption.
Expanded data protection.
In addition to Mail and third-party apps, the Calendar, Contacts, Reminders, Notes, and Messages apps as well as user credentials are protected with a passcode until after the device is unlocked following a reboot.
S/MIME controls per message.
S/MIME users can choose to sign and encrypt individual messages for greater control over the security of mail messages.
New productivity features.
New time-saving features and more in Mail.
To help manage busy inboxes, you can mark messages as read or unread or flag them for follow-up with a quick swipe left or right. You can designate individual mail threads as VIP so you can easily track updates to the conversation. There’s also a custom mailbox you can show in mailbox view that groups VIP threads together.
See meeting availability and more in Calendar.
In Calendar, you can see your colleagues’ availability when scheduling a meeting so you can quickly find a time that works for everyone. You can mark events as private. It’s easier to create events that repeat at custom intervals and lengths of time, such as on the first Monday of every month. And you can email meeting attendees from Calendar to let them know you’re running late.
Get easier access to corporate documents.
Third-party document apps can make documents available to other apps more easily than ever — without making unnecessary copies. So if you have an app that can access your corporate file servers, you can get to the document you need right from the app you want to edit it in. In addition, AirDrop support between iOS and OS X enables users to transfer files to and from a Mac even without an Internet connection.
Better data and device management tools.
New tools to manage books and PDFs.
iBooks, ePub, and PDF documents can now be automatically pushed to user devices using mobile device management (MDM) tools, so users always have what they need. When the materials are no longer necessary, they can be removed remotely.
Data management and content filtering.
IT departments can control which apps can open documents downloaded from enterprise domains using Safari. They can also set up rules for controlling which apps can open documents from iCloud Drive. A new networking framework in iOS 10 makes it possible for third-party networking developers to create powerful content-filtering tools.
More powerful device management capabilities.
New MDM tools help IT administrators see and do more with the iOS devices they manage. They can set the device name remotely and prevent users from adding their own restrictions or erasing their devices. New queries let administrators see the last time a device was backed up to iCloud so they know whether it’s safe to perform certain tasks. A new remote management UI makes enrolling and understanding the impact of MDM easier and more transparent for users. MDM also enables IT staff to help users authenticate to enterprise apps using certificate-based single sign-on.
