If you are using the 6s or the 7 then the ID sensor is really quick which can be a bit of pain.
Am I the only one that doesn't really see a difference in the way the phone unlocks? You press the home button to wake the screen the sensor reads your print & opens. I can not remember the last time I slide my screen across to unlock.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2016she used iphone 3gsNice try.... iOS 10 is only supported for iPhone 5 and up
even iOS 20 won't have half the features that android N has.
so nobody cares about having the latest OS.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2016Android user hurt? HAHA! Android still have more than 80% all whole world user.IOS? LOL... that still using jelly bean
sa11oum, 11 Oct 2016Seriously what hole of your body did you pull this out from? Very untrueshe used iphone 3gs
This is probably one of the best things and what I really wish to have as an Android user.
Even iPhone 5 can get the update, but in the android world, a 2-3 year old "flagship" cant even handle a new OS version? what a joke.
Not knowing why the high adoption rate? Im on 5c and every few minutes i get a badgering notification for updating iOS.... worse than windows 10 update few months back.... how can they be even allowed to do this....fliping disgusting...
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2016iOS 10 is very buggy and laggy with many already returning to 9.3.5 while it's still signed.Seriously what hole of your body did you pull this out from? Very untrue

For me it's no big deal.
AnonD-166545, 11 Oct 2016Has iOS caught up to ICS yet?Its getting somehwere
anyone here rocking an iPhone SE running IOS 10? how's the performance & battery life?
A large part of the staggered 'rapid' deployment was probably friends and family realising just how much more the 'Messages' app can do.
Once a family member gets iOS 10, you will want every device to be running iOS 10.
Having run developers builds since announcement,.. nearly put them on the GFs iPAD.
There was just too much broken with development builds (each alternating release would be heaven and hell).
The latest official update restored the 'quicklinks' for opening a new webpage (a strange absence only after official iOS10 came out!).
It is now the solid and great OS that it should be!
I understand why some iOS upgrades take awhile to 'get up to speed'; some were too heavy for older hardware (fixed in later revisions), and some offered true improvements. (I would never have survived without 'cut and paste' and multiwindow. And 'YES' multitasks like a champion now.... (haters gotta hate!))
The best thing about iOS 10 is having a cutoff for ancient hardware.
Running on devices with five times as much power and two-four times the RAM as below the cutoff (eg iPAD2) will allow iOS to start incorporating lots of useful features and stay focused and optimised.
the A series chipsets that Apple builds with custom functions to accelerate OS specifics makes these low power computing parts fly like an eagle.
IOS 10 is very nice, but to be fair my iOS time has been with 9 onwards. 9 really would have been my minimum for iOS without feeling like I had a fisher price toy in my hand.
My productivity under iOS9-10 has made my iPAD my GOTO computer (and I am a 20+year computing industry professional).
Three rigs in my house (all i7s with bucket loads of RAM and the gaming beast being a watercooled rig that will run any game at Ultra settings well north of sixty frames per second..)- never get used.
I sometimes fire up the main desktop for burning a bluray etc or updating the music on my phone or tablet,.. otherwise... I use my iPAD. (With pencil and logitech keyboard)
My daughter is put on the desktop publishing workstation for wacom access when she does animation stuff for school projects etc... and that is either due to x86 specific software or software requiring FLASH or some other archaic web technology that iOS webbrowser doesn't natively support...
Whilst I take a laptop with me for tech support callouts; the three times this year I have needed it (either flashing firmware or network diagnosis); it has proven useless (it would start installing Windows 10 updates with no option to defer...)
I will run a windows 10 gaming PC, and older Win7 desktop publishing station, and a dual boot laptop (linux and windows) for infield use...
Whilst I can afford to have such technology sitting around and being redundant... for pensioners in my township who just want to read an email, post to facebook and we chat etc... and iPAD is a trouble free piece of tech. For school students I recommend Apple laptops.. and I never see these customers again (except to thank me every time they see me on the street!). I still service most families Windows laptops, typically every 6-8 months, and everyone starts to see that Apple Total Cost of Ownership is actually leagues cheaper.
I can explain this to sheep who hate a product they don't understand if anyone asks me...
Don't get me wrong; certain productivity software needs a Windows frontend.. but this is less and less...
With a lot of software being accessed through web technologies.. the chance for remote computing/processing and just needing an interface; iPads and 'tablets' might are logical to become the tech we use.
What would I use my 4.5Ghz I7 for? Gaming. For the time video conversion takes etc I could happily do it on an ancient laptop I7 and leave my gaming PC available for 'fun'.
To be fair, I play the Witcher 3 on the PS4 in the loungeroom (yes I have hooked my PC to loungeroom TVs since the mid nineties, and love the surround sound/big screen experience (expensive TV with 1080 lines of MOTION RESOLUTION) with a wireless Xbox controller etc...
The Witcher 3 on my PC runs vastly higher resolution, vastly higher framerate, and runs with full hairworkx (geralt and monsters).
But the loungeroom PS4 gets it as it is a slow paced game not needing 100frames per second.
For competitive gaming nothing beats out a gaming monitor and solid accessories, so I keep my PC in a different zone (which works well for leaving the G27 wheel and Sony HMD-T3W hooked up at all times on a custom racing chair/ surround setup).
Might sound like I have cash to burn, but that is mostly because I am an economical purchaser, who, buys Apple! (Because the price to performance ratio and reliability and productivity make it exceptional value for money)
For those who blindly hate and try to educate others their lack of education with ragards to Apple hardware and software- your lack of understanding and 'spec sheet comparisons' are what holds you back from understanding Apple has a clear userbase and is an exceptional computing platform for many.
Apple hardware is typically premium. Even if tech users don't get it. (Not all about 'the numbers')
Lol to your buggy comment the apps part I can understand but I am not limited in anyway also I am using a Lumia 1520 running developers preview 1607 aniversary update on the fast ring so I would think your device should work better or you don't understand the OS. Maybe you need a reset and a fresh restore as I have seen reviews of the said 950xl before and after the updates and the bugs that you might be referring to was when the device was released so stop whining and send the 950xl to me lol I can live with the tiny bugs.
Also IOS 9 had bugs and people are downgrading to the latest signed ios 9 so good luck
