Before you can download or install the new model of iOS, you want to ensure your device compatible with it. Here is a table of the compatible devices you can execute iOS 10 on. Users claimed that in the past the latest versions of iOS make their Apple device perform slower. You should want to recover and archive before upgrading; restoring up, will make it quite easy to back up your device if required.

After you have determined your devices are compatible, and it is backed up, you can then begin the upgrade. Click the settings icon and scroll down to the General. Then click Software Update, you should then view iOS 10 as an available update. Move down then click the Download and install button. If you are using mobile data, this will be grayed out, try to use a wireless connection, then try again. However, a prompt appears to input your passcode. If you don’t view the update at all, restart your mobile device then try again.

Wait until the iOS 10 is installed or downloaded. When successfully complete, restart your mobile to end the installation. You can also use a reminder to install at a later time.

That’s all! The first place I would check while updating is the App Store for any updates. If you have any issues. Then move to Settings > General > Software Updates. Apple does parallel development, with the initial maintenance update coinciding with the master release.

Limited Storage Apple Devices:

iOS 10

After using an Apple device with limited space, especially those devices with 16 GBs, you must try updating via iTunes. Install the new version of iTunes, then connect your device. Also, launch iTunes, choose your device then tap Check for Updates.

Did you like to upgrade?

If you want to get right to the point, I say yes, if your device is compatible with it. Features like Raise to Wake available on the iPhone 6 or later version is a welcome feature. Come let’s check some other features:

Lock Screen Notifications:

The Lock Screen is very productive in iOS 10 as compared to iOS 9. Well, the reason to unlock my iPhone is to check details about notifications I view on the lock screen. They are placed in more detailed and essential. I have been reading some complaints about the lock screen behavior in iOS 10. The slide to unlock action is unavailable. Rather than, to unlock the device, you hit the Touch ID button. If you like to access the camera, just move to the left. If you like to access applications and notifications, move to the right. You can aslo move back to the home screen after hitting the Home button again.

Control Center

Control Center provides more functionality on iOS 10. The best thing is more 3D Touch functions for utilities such as Timer, Flashlight, and the Camera. Also, you can access a secondary widget for music player controls and also interact with applications such as Shazam.

Notification Center is very essential. Also, it offers a selection widget you can instantly glance at for news, weather, and calendar events.

There are some other latest fringe features such as Messages supporting fun, funny stickers you can use to add fun during conversations. It includes a store where you can purchase and download the latest funny and entertaining stickers.

Photo Feature:

The Photos feature provides an intelligent auto movie function known as Memories and creating transitions with background music or subtle effects. To be frank, it’s not perfect. Also, if you have a brilliant photo collection then you will love it. Other improvements provide the ability to search and look for people in your photos. Many apps like News, Music feature the latest designs making them simpler to navigate and explore content.

System-Wide and Improved Third-Party App:

Maps or Siri both provide extension support. However, it makes it simpler or easier for third-party developers to increase with extra functionality and features. After using the Mail app, third-party applications can benefit from suggested contact details or events. Also, I don’t use Apples built-in keyboard as it provides multi-lingual typing, new emoji, and additional contextual support.


So, are you ready to upgrade? Not only will it enables you to stay updated from a security or privacy standpoint, but also you get access to all the latest features coming from Apple.

If we talk about stability or performance, then this update is too good. With earlier updates, older phones can’t keep up with all the latest or upcoming features however with IOS 10 it’s just fabulous!
