iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are finally here. This year’s iPhone models come with some daring changes. One of such change is the removal of the standard 3.5 mm headphone. But if you have upgraded to iOS 10, the first thing you will notice is that the iconic “slide to unlock”, which we have grown accustomed to since the day one, is no more. In reality, iOS 10 has removed some familiar things and replaced some more.
In this article, we have compiled a list of six features that are no longer available in iOS 10 in order to help you make the most of Apple’s latest firmware.
Photostream is a nice feature that allows users to access the recent photos they take with their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. However, with the unveiling of iCloud Photo Library, Photostream has been ignored. Apple has never mentioned photostream in iOS 10 – in the photos app or Settings. In iOS 10, if you want to share your photos between devices or save them to iCloud, the best shot for making this possible is to use iCloud Photo Library.
- Remove all emails
With iOS 10, the Mail app has seen some exciting changes, but you will not be able to delete all emails from your inbox at the same time anymore. From now on, you need to select a message you no longer use to delete it, which is more time-consuming.
- Proactive screen and News
With iOS 10, Apple has removed Proactive screen, something that we have been familiar with since iOS 9. Proactive has been replaced with Today view or the widgets screen. In reality, Proactive screen was a mess with dozens of things that we could not customize and disable. In iOS 10, the new Today view, with the widgets is much better and simpler, allowing users to have access to their favorite apps right from the lock screen.
- Star Tracks
In iOS 10, Apple has officially removed the ability to star track in the Music app. But, you can still do it in iTunes. To do this, you need to head to “hearing” or “loving” tracks that you like. However, you won’t find granular control like you always did in the staring system.
- Add To Up Next
Add To Up Next was a nice feature that allowed users to add their songs and albums to the current queue. However, in iOS 10, Apple has officially removed it and replaced with something much simpler. From now on, you will get “Play Next” and “Play Later” options with a simple long-press on a song or album.
- Slide to Unlock
In iOS 10, Apple has removed its classic “Slide to unlock” feature that was previously found on thousands of iPhone models. From now on, to unlock your device, all you have to do is to press the home button. However, if you find it annoying, you can easily disable it by turning on the “Rest to Unlock” toggle from the Settings app.
iOS 10 is the biggest iOS release ever, making your daily tasks much easier and better. Are you enjoying it so far? Share with us in the comments section menu.
