Did you miss the Apple Launch event last night? A lot has changed in Apple Camp in the last 24 hours

At this years launch event in San Francisco, Apple unveiled not only a new iPhone 7 family (7 & 7+), a new Apple Watch, and some wireless Air Pods – it also confirmed the public release of iOS 10 on September 13th 2016.

We’ve had our hands on the development beta platform for some time now, but if you’ve not yet tried it, here’s a roundup of all the new functionality that we’re excited about:

HomeKit

The new release features a new section called ‘Home’, a place to view and manage all your HomeKit or IoT devices. You can also adjust multiple devices grouped into ‘Scenes’, all at once. Genius.

Siri Upgrades

Siri has also learnt some new tricks; the voice-activated PA has been programmed to understand commands for other external apps and services. You’ll even be able to do things like request a Uber with just a voice command.

Raise handset for Notifications

On iOS 10 you can now preview your notifications by simply raising your phone, enable 3D touch to interact with notifications and adjust more audio settings from the Control Center.

iMessage

In addition, iMessage has been re-imagined to support link previews for images and video, large emoji and hand written responses. Users can also react to individual messages and insert emoji quickly using the baked-in advanced keyboard.

Apple Photos & Memories

If you’re a fan of taking lots of snaps, Apple Photos will now automatically create slideshows, and ‘Memories’ for looking back at older shots.

The new iOS 10 also supports RAW camera images alongside Wide Color capture for more vivid colours.

Plus much more…
