Last week in WWDC 2016 Apple has released the latest version of iOS software and the developer’s version is already available to those who are interested to use it. But it is obvious that the first version of this OS would not be that stable and it will be difficult to use in the iPhone or any other Apple gadget. If you have already downloaded the 1st beta version of iOS 10 and want to revert back to iOS 9.3.2, then here are some steps to do it:

How-to-Downgrade-iOS-10-Beta-to-iOS-9.3.2-on-iPhone-and-iPad

How to Downgrade from iOS 10 Beta to iOS 9.3.2 on iPhone, iPad and iPod

Firstly, you need to take a back up of all the data present in your device in cloud or in your computer.

Thereafter, you have to download the iOS 9.3.2 ISPW which is compatible with your Apple gadget in your computer. To downgrade from the latest to the older version of the software, this is absolutely necessary.

Here is the Download link of iOS 9.3.2 ISPW

A tab is going to appear labeled iOS, click on it some options are going to appear on the screen. Among the different options only iOS 9.3.2 is going to be green color. This mean that you can revert back to only this version of the software. The iOS 9.3.2 version needs 2GB space, therefore your gadget must have that much of free space.

Without iTunes it is not possible to degrade to an older version of iOS, so make sure that you have downloaded iTunes before starting the process. Now, plugin your iPhone or iPad to the PC and click on iTunes. Check the rectangular box in iTunes and find out these options: Check for update or Restore iPhone or iPad or iPod.

Next, if you are using Mac then press on the Alt key and simultaneously click on Check for updates. If you are using Windows OS, press on Shift key and simultaneously click on Check for updates. A pop up box is going to appear with many options. Generally the last of all the options is iOS 9.3.x IPSW, once you have found this option click on it.

After that you will get to see another pop up box on the screen with the following message: ‘iTunes will update your iPod/iPhone/iPad to iOS 9.3.2 and will verify the update with Apple.’ Just below it you will find the update button, click on it.

Instantaneously, the screen on your device will become black and your gadget will be updated. After sometimes the white logo of Apple will appear. Once the process start do not press home button or the screen of the phone as the process might get disrupted. Moreover make sure that the USB connection is strong or else you have to start the process from the beginning.

Different gadgets are going to take different time to update, so wait till your gadget gets updated and then restart the device. If your device is password protected, you have to enter it and then wait for it set up.

Once done, go to Settings and check for the version of software showing there. If it shows iOS 9.3.2, then the downgrade process has been successful.

If you are not ready to take risk with the working of your gadget, then downgrading from iOS 10 is the best option available for you. The best and most stable version of the software is going to be released along with iPhone 7. Then you can easily update it and enjoy all the new updates and tweaks that has been introduced in iOS 10.

With the new Apple mobile operating system, Apple is beginning to allow users to have more control of the software installed in its iOS device. For the first time in the iPhone history, you’ll be able to delete the built-in apps like Music, Calculator, Maps, if it’s not required by the user. All default iOS apps can be found in the Apple App Store, so can just head there and decide which one’s you don’t want.

Although this particular feature went unmentioned by Tim Cook and software boss Craig Federighiat the WWDC. During the keynote, they entirely skipped mention about this. Not because it’s not true, but because of some strange unknown reason we are yet to find out. There are already users who have downloaded the developer’s beta version and they have confirmed about the change. Although some of them also noted that stock apps like Messages, Photos, and Camera could not be deleted probably because the apps were too deeply tied to system to be uninstalled.

Moreover, Apple has set up a Help Page dedicated to ‘how to remove built-in apps’. The company clearly warns users that deleting default apps can create a bit of problem for users, because a lot of data gets removed along the way. For instance, if you remove Music then you’ll lose access to CarPlay. Here’s a list of built-in apps that you can remove from Home Screen:

  • Calculator
  • Calendar
  • Compass
  • Contacts1
  • FaceTime
  • Find My Friends
  • Home
  • iBooks
  • iCloud Drive
  • iTunes Store
  • Mail
  • Maps
  • Music2
  • News3
  • Notes
  • Podcasts
  • Reminders
  • Stocks
  • Tips
  • Videos
  • Voice Memos
  • Watch app4
  • Weather

 The feature to be able to remove default apps was hinted by Tim Cook in an interview he gave last September. He said, that Apple was looking to give users more flexibility in cutting down on the amount of software that comes with iOS. “This is a more complex issue than it first appears,” he said. “There are some apps that are linked to something else on the iPhone. If they were to be removed they might cause issues elsewhere on the phone. There are other apps that aren’t like that. So over time, I think with the ones that aren’t like that, we’ll figure out a way.”

Android and iOS are the two widely used mobile platforms that dominate the entire world. These two companies have totally different business strategies and thus they seldom come into conflict with one another. Both these mobile platforms are extremely efficient and user friendly. I had the privilege of using both these platforms, and though both are my favorites but I found some features of Android Marshmallow that was missing in iOS. When I was using both these platforms simultaneously for many days, I was constantly comparing the features of these two platforms in my mind and that gave me the inspiration to pen down all the features of Android Marshmallow that we expect iOS 10 to have next year.

Virtual Home Button

We know that the home button in iPhones is kind of its signature style, but I feel that if Apple removes it, then it could increase the screen size without compromising with any of the functions of the gadget. Though iOS comes with a virtual back button in some apps in the left corner of the screen, but it is not as user friendly as Android platform’s one.

Location Responsive Device Functionality

Android users already have the privilege of setting the functionality of the device according to its location i.e. the functionality of the device will change automatically according to location like office, home, car or any other place. For example if the gadget detects that you are travelling in your car, the gadget would automatically connect car’s Bluetooth with the phone’s one. Or if it detects that you have reached home, then it disables all the lock screen features. We have hearing rumors that iOS platform is also going to support such feature from a long time, but we are yet to see it.

Multiple Users Support

multi_user

Android platform supports multiple user support which enables many users to see a single gadget without interfering with the others documents. This is specially useful in a family where more than one can use a tablet and at the same time the parents can keep an eye on the activities of the children when they are connected to the net. Till now we didn’t find this feature in iOS platform and we really hope to see it soon.

Improve Proactive

google_now

Proactive and Google Now are the two virtual assistants that even introduced by Google and Apple respectively. After using both it is absolutely evident that Google Now is much better in comparison to Proactive. Google Now keeps you updated about your regular appointments, flight schedule, events and apps and I personally find it really convenient. Though Google Now is also available in iOS platform but it is not as efficient as in Android platform because of Google’s privacy features.

Modify Default Apps  

default-app

Though Apple gadgets are preferred by most users because, its range of products is extremely personalized, but while using it you may have the feeling that you are using a stranger’s phone. This is because Apple never allows the users to uninstall the default apps. Most Apple users would be happy to hear that Apple is also allowing third party apps in its gadgets in place of the default apps. Lets hope that this year iPhone users will have the option of uninstalling preinstalled apps and using third party apps.

Wider Range of Wallpapers

Android users can easily change wallpapers and a wide range of 2D as well as 3D theme based wallpapers are available to the users. Android users can easily download it and change it. But iOS users have access to a limited collection of live wallpapers and honestly it is not as remarkable as Android’s wallpapers. This is one of the most serious drawbacks of iOS platform on which it needs to work on.

Free Google Backup

Android users have the privilege of creating a back up of all your data and photos in Google Drive or Photos at free of cost. Any smartphone run on Android platform of any price range will have this privilege only of they have access to internet. However, iPhone users have to pay excess monthly fee for getting access to iCloud. It is time that iOS users at least allow its users to store at least a limited amount of data in iCloud at free of cost.

Better Top of Screen Status Bar

The Top of Screen Status bar of iPhone or iPad mainly consist of unnecessary things like the carriers name, long battery and other things which are not that important. However, the status bar of Android platform mainly displays all the necessary things such as alarm clock if you have already set an alarm, download status, Wi-fi and Bluetooth symbol if they are turned on and other important things that are present in the notification center. This is really helpful for the users and if we iOS adapts this feature, then we would be more than happy.

Change Emergency Alert Settings

Both Android and iOS has emergency alert features. However, in iOS platform there is no option to change the settings of the emergency alert like disable vibration or give reminder only once in two minutes or fifteen minutes. Moreover, there is an option to categorize between ‘extreme threat to life and property’, ‘severe threat to life and property’ and AMBER alerts. In iOS platform users have only two options ‘emergency alert’ or ‘AMBER Alerts’ and with the option of either turning them on or off.

Touch ID Should Not Wipe Away Notifications

One of the main problems with iOS is that whenever the user touches the Touch ID, all the notifications wipe away and are stored in the form of group notification. This is not so in case of Android platform. I have to swipe through them one by one to clear it. I found Android approach to handle this problem which more scientific and user friendly and thus would expect in next generation iOS platform i.e. iOS 10.

iOS 10 + OS X

iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Captain the mobile and desktop operating system from the house of Apple were released in the year 2015 and it was well accepted by the people in general. Apple users were happy with the new features of both these platforms.

iOS 10 + OS X

However, rumor has it that lately Apple has shifted its focus on the next generation iOS and OS X platform that will be released next year i.e. iOS 10 and OS X 10.12. Most of Apple’s software engineers are dedicating their time and energy in developing iOS 10 and OS X 10.12.

ios 10 and OS X 10.12

Apple has focused its attention for developing the next generation operating system from the month of September, but at the initial stage the pace of development was slow. But lately Apple is dedicating most of its time and energy in developing this platform. Only a small team is being chalked out for fixing the bugs of iOS 9.2 and OS X 10.11.2.

Our sources have revealed that the code name for OS X 10.12 is ‘Fuji’. We will keep updating you with more news and rumors about the next generation platform when we come to know about it.

iOS 9 is going to be launched any time soon and we have also got idea about the updated features iOS 9. Apple aficionados have already started contemplating about the features of iOS 10, which is expected to arrive in 2016.

apple-iphone-6-with-ios-10

Rumor has it that Apple is presently working on an innovative voicemail service that it wishes to introduce in the next generation iOS platform. While the old users find voicemail convenient when it cannot reach out to the person on the other end, new users are more keen on sending text messages when they cannot contact the person on the other end. Apple wishes to provide all the users with an easy way to deal with the problem and that’s why it had taken up the initiative to update Siri which will resolve this problem.

The updated Siri that will come with iOS 10 would have the capability to answer phone calls on the users’ behalf when they cannot pick up the call. Thereafter, Siri would convert the convert the voicemail into a text message automatically and store it in iCloud. In this way users can get rid from a common problem i.e. there would be no chance of missing out vital details while listening to voicemails. Introduction of this feature is also going to make iPhones all the more safe as users need not share information like their location or why they can’t pick up the call with the person who is calling.

However, we must mention here that Android users have been using this feature from a long time with Google Voice. But we must also admit that Google Voice has a lot of flaws on which the developers needs to work on. We are pretty sure that Apple is already aware of the flaws of Google Voice and it is going to work on this upgrade in a way so that iCloud Voicemail works perfectly.

Introduction of features like iCloud voicemail and unique sim card in Apple’s future generation phone could also indicate that Apple may introduce mobile virtual network operator service in the future.

Siri had been made a lot smarter in iOS 9 itself. This time it has been programmed to understand terminologies like ‘it and this’ when the users use these words perfectly. Moreover, iOS 9 will be compatible with a range of Apple products like iPhones, iPods, iPads etc. Apple has tried to tighten the security features of iOS 9 by increasing the length of the passcode from four to six.
