Ahead of Apple 7 September 2016 event that’s going to introduce iPhone 7 and iOS 10, here are 10 most noticeable new features to expect on iOS 10:

1. iOS 10 New Unlocking Method

Apple is finally getting rid of its ‘Slide to Unlock’, now in order to unlock the iPhone, all you need to do is just rest your finger in the Touch ID and click on the Touch ID button. For iPhone or iDevices without Touch ID, you’ll still need to key in your passcode.

For Touch ID iPhones, if somehow you still prefer the previous iOS way of unlocking which is just rest your finger to unlock (without the need to click the Touch ID button), you can revert it back. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Home Button > Rest Finger to Open > Turn On.

2. iOS 10 New Icon and App on the Home Screen

Apple News get a new icon, while finally Apple smart home automation has a new app called ‘Home’.
