Apple's new iOS 10 operating system was released earlier this week, and even though we've covered our 10 favorite features, five hidden features and a complete guide to the new emojis, there's still a whole heap of new additions and enhancements to be uncovered.

Luckily, Forbes is on hand to deliver us yet more secret features, including "Find My Car," "Bedtime," loads of small tips and tricks – and even how to restore the old unlock method. Check them out below.

Apple Maps

Find My Car: Siri automatically detects when you’re driving and drops a pin at the location you stop, so you can easily find it later.

Avoid Tolls: When setting a route, you can now choose to specifically avoid toll roads. Admittedly Google Maps has had this for a while, but better late than never.

Apple Mail

Fast Unsubscribe: Emails with unsubscribe links will now automatically have them displayed at the top of each message with an easy to hit button. Another example of Apple's tiny change, huge impact improvements.

Unread Only: When viewing your mailbox, look for the filter icon (bottom left corner) and change the default setting to ‘Filtered by: Unread’

Quick Actions: Swipe left on a message in the new threaded view and it will reveal actions such as flag, reply and trash.


Read Receipts: Users can now request notifications for when their messages to other iMessage users have been read.

Image Search: When writing a message, tap the App Store icon, swipe to an images page, and search for anything you want.

Save Data: Settings > Messages > Enable Low Quality Image Mode.


Third Party Apps: Highlight a word in iOS 10 and you will see ‘Define’ has been replaced by ‘Look Up’ and includes the option to search for the term in the App Store, Apple Music, online search or Wikipedia. There’s third party app support for this as well, which could come in very handy indeed.

Old Unlock Style

Restore Touch to Unlock: One of the most frustrating changes was to the way we open the device. iOS 10 requires users to physically press the home button, rather than just make contact for the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. If you don’t like this go to: Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button and enable: ‘Rest Finger to Open’ to get the old method back.

Apple Music

Optimized Storage: Apple Music settings now allow you to automatically free up space by removing tracks you haven’t listened to for a predefined period – harsh but handy.  Settings > Music > Downloads.

Smart Downloads: Settings > Music > Downloads and switch ‘Automatic Downloads’ on and you will find any album can be quickly downloaded by tapping the ‘+Add’ button. Useful for those who do a lot of offline listening, like frequent flyers and underground commuters.


Don’t Stop The Music: Apple has stopped the camera mode automatically pausing any music playing from the device the moment it is opened. Great if your phone is also the source of music for a party, or you're alone listening to music and wish to take a picture.


Bedtime: Open the Clock app and you’ll find new option ‘Bedtime.’ This can be used to define the typical times you go to bed, wake up and the length of sleep you prefer. You then get reminders telling you when you should go to bed.

Control Center

Quick Timer Options: Bring up the Control Center and 3D Touch-enabled iPhone (6S and above) users can use a harder press to bring up 1, 5, 20 and one hour instant timer options.

Calculator Memory: 3D Touch the calculator icon in the Control Center and you can copy in the answer to your last calculation, saving precious time.

Camera shortcuts: 3D Touch options have been extended to bring up specific shooting modes for the camera icon in the Control Center.

Music & Home Hidden: Control Center in iOS no longer shows music controls on its mainscreen - instead you have to swipe left, and if you swipe left once more you get shortcuts for the Home app.

Flashlight Tweaks: 3D Touch enabled iPhone users can use a harder pressure touch on the flashlight icon to get low, medium and high brightness options.

‘Close All’ Shortcuts

Safari: Quickly ditch all of those incriminating browser tabs on your iPad with a long press on the Tab View button, which brings up the close all tabs options. iPhones require an extra step: open Tab View, then long press on ‘Done’ to generate the option.

Notifications: Tired of the annoying little ‘x’ on each notification? Remove them all at once with a harder press on the X at the top of the list and you will get a ‘Clear All’ option.
