iOS 10 Download: How To Install & Update iPhone, iPad & iPod

Every year, Apple releases a new operating system for their respective products, typically in unison with the release of their new products. This year is no different, a iOS 10 is expected to be released in September, being released simultaneously with the iPhone 7. The upgrades and new features were just announced, amping up the anticipation.
The iOS 10 public beta is now available to download. You can also download macOS Sierra public beta right now, which is the latest operating system for desktop Apple devices, and has been designed to work with iOS 10. The iOS 10 public beta is now available to download, so you no longer have to be a part of the Apple Developer Program to use it.
This is how to you download the new operating system, Apple iOS 10:

This is the preferred method, as a clean install will remove any artifacts of an older, obsolete operating system.

iOS 10 Features and Updates

New Lock Screen

iOS 10 has a new raise-to-wake feature that wakes up to display the lock screen without having to touch any buttons. The updated lock screen also includes new features that give native apps and third-party apps an interactive interface. You will be able to clear  your notifications with a 3D Touch gesture, and widgets will FINALLY be available on the lock screen with a quick swipe to the right.

Siri being opened to developers

Siri will now be open to developers, meaning, you will be able to use Siri to open and operate apps. For example, you will be able to send messages in WhatsApp, or order an Uber, all with just your voice. Awesome.

Quick Type Enhancements

Apple will be dramatically improving Quick Type suggestions. Siri will also be involved in this update, for example, if someone messages you with “Where are you?” Quick Type will offer your current location as a suggestion.

Updated Photos App

Facial recognition technology will now group all of your friends and family into specific albums automatically. It will do the same with scenes and objects as well (mountains, horses, trees, etc). A second next feature, Memories, will automatically group photos to create movies, slide shows and more. If you go on vacation and take 200 pictures, your iPhone will group them into a single memory.

New Messaging Features

The first new feature is called Rich Links. Rich Links will give you previews of content when you receive a message with a link. For example,  videos on rich links will play right in line automatically, and music can be played right from within the app when someone sends you a link to a song in Apple Music. Emoji are three times bigger on the keyboard, and Quick Type offers emoji suggestions. Handwriting and Digital Touch will now also be available on the Messages app.
One of the most exciting new features of the Messages app is the new bubble effects let users send messages with animated chat bubbles. They can grow larger for shouting, smaller for whispers, and there are some other effects as well. It’s kind of hard to describe with text, so you can check out animations on the official iOS website.

New Phone Features

The Phone app will now automatically transcribe your voicemails. While very cool, I just don’t see it’s use, as voicemail is a dying service. Even those who do still use voicemail usually don’t leave a message long enough that it needs to be transcribed. There’s also an extension that will allow supported spam lists block spam calls without any intervention needed from the user.

Notes Collaboration

Just like Google Docs, you will now be able work live and edit notes with multiple users at once.

Safari Split View

It took them a while, but you will finally be able to view two websites at once in the Safari app.
