iOS 9 was released this year and its innovative features have been appreciated by all the iPhone users. However, Apple has already started developing its next generation mobile platform. Just like any other year Apple is extremely secretive about the features of its next generation platform, but that does not stop us from speculating about the features of iOS 10.
Analysts have already speculated that the next generation iPhone 7 will be water proof and come with better RAM. Moreover, along with iPhone 7, iPhone 7c will be also released. The 7c will be released in the second half of 2016 and about Apple is probably planning to produce 260 million units of iPhones which means that there will be 12.5% annual increase in Apple’s production. On the contrary, there are also reports that there will be an annual drop of 4% in Samsung’s production level next year as the Chinese competitors has emerged as one of the greatest competitors of Samsung. Analysts are also of the opinion that this year Samsung will focus on developing the hardware of its next generation flagship smartphone.
Coming back to our main focus of discussion, here are some of the features that we expect to see in iOS 10. Some of the features mentioned in this write up may appear to be too futuristic to appear in iOS 10 and some features mentioned in this write are already a feature of Android or Windows platform and now we are expecting it in iOS 10. We may or may not get to see to it, but at this juncture of its developmental stage we can be definitely hopeful.
Remove Unwanted App
There are some pre-installed apps in iOS platform which we do not use and do not want to use in the future course of time. However, whenever we activate the screen of the phone we can see those useless apps. Therefore, we would like Apple developer to make iOS 10 more personalized so that they can get the freedom of deleting or hiding all the unwanted pre-installed apps from the phone.
Personalized Control Center
The present control center of iOS platform is really user-friendly as user can get control to variety of features by just swiping the finger from the bottom of the phone to the upward direction. This helps us to get access to a large variety of features like changing the mode of the phone, get access to apps like music, camera, time, calculator and many more. However, it would be great if we get the option of customizing the control center and only putting those apps in the control center that we need most.
Color Options In Menu Bar
Previously in all the operating systems developed by Apple white background was used in the menu bar and dock. We noticed a change for the first time in OS X Yosemite where a dark option was made available along with the light one. Apple PC users where happy with this change as they were of the opinion: it helps them to concentrate on their work. We would like to see this change in iOS 10 as well. Though iPhones and iPads are not used by professionals for doing their work but this will provide the users with greater variety.
Allow 3rd Party Apps
Since the very beginning iPhone users have been demanding Apple to add on this feature in the next generation platform, but their request has still remained unheard. So lets be hopeful and expect Apple to allow users use third party apps in iOS 10. Letting users use their favorite third party app instead of the default apps will help in making iPhones and iPads more popular among the users.
Access To Siri API
This is another feature that developers have been asking to be integrated since this platform was been introduced and the possibility of it being included is the least. Just in case we get to see this in the next generation iOS 10, then iPhones and iPads will become all the more the user-friendly and we will be to take commands from you.
Integrate iPad With Weather App
Weather app is one of the most useful and awesome (look wise) feature of iOS 10. However, iPad users get really disappointed as the weather app is not supported in the iPads. So this year we would like Apple developers to work on this aspect and make necessary amendments.
Translate Voice Message
We have been hearing that Apple has submitted several patents which show that the virtual assistant will become all the powerful and will be able to transcribe voice messages. Thereafter, users will have the option of reading voice messages instead of the hearing it. This will be welcomed by many users as they can read the voice message quickly while they are in a meeting and cannot take calls or listen to voice messages.
We know that Apple gadgets have awesome security features that make these gadgets absolutely personalized. However, we would like to iOS 10 to come with multiple users support so that more than one person can use a particular gadget by creating different profiles. This will be specially convenient for the iPad users as then it can be shared by more than one member of the family by creating accounts in the same the gadget. Users can log in by feeding the password or fingerprint or pin and thereafter get access to their customized settings. Multiple users’ facilities in the home as well as in the home environment will help to share data easily and at the same time keep all your documents totally private. However, this particular feature is not really useful for the iPhones as it is a personalized gadget.
Users Need One ID
Apple ID was introduced long back when it was used for getting access to iTools and for Mac services. Again in the year 2003 Apple introduced another set of Apple ID for those using iTunes. So many users have more than one Apple ID so it will be best, if these are merged together creating only one Apple ID from where they can access iTunes, App store or any other apps for making payments.
Improved Mail App
The mail app of iOS platform is great and every year some improvements are integrated to make this app all the more effective. However, we would like to see one more improvement in the mail app of iOS 10 i.e. the ability to conceal or show nested folders so that users do not have to browse a lot for finding out there particular folder.
These are more or less all the changes that we would like to see in the iOS 10 platform, though we know that some of the changes put forward are too far flung. We would also like to know from the readers what kind of improvisation and inclusion they will like to see in the iOS 10 platform. So do post and share your ideas in the comment’s section so that developers can get an idea about the wish and expectations of the users.
