Where form meets function

Apple’s much-anticipated iOS 10 update is finally available for iPhone, iPad and iPod. Recognized as the biggest iOS release to date, the drop is a massive delivery for Messages, in addition to bringing new ways to use Siri with your favorite apps, and introducing Memories in Photos, which helps you rediscover favorite and forgotten occasions from your photo library.

Now in Messages you can take advantage of full-screen effects, a Tapback feature, and more animated and personal ways to communicate. New apps will in turn allow you to send stickers, edit photos, initiate payments, and even schedule dinner or a movie, all from within Messages. In addition, you can make use of a new tap to replace feature that lets you “emojify” any message and new emoji that appear three times larger.

Also with iOS 10, your most used apps can communicate with Siri so you can search for photos, make payments, message friends, place calls, book rides and start workouts just by using your voice.

The new Memories in Photos feature uses machine learning to group the people, places and things inside your images into albums with on-device face, object and scene recognition.

Alongside each of these standout updates, iOS 10 also revamps the Home app, Maps, Apple Music and more.
