But while i OS 10 adds a slew of new features, you may not actually want to update. i OS 10 is compatible with i Phones as far back as the i Phone 5, which is four years old.As you can see in Everything Apple Pro's annual speed test comparison, older i Phones running i OS 10 take longer to boot up and launch apps.better than the original version that launched last year, but not by much.As I said in my review, the fonts are huge and the app still insists on weaseling in Apple Music features even when you turn the settings off. Like why are the repeat and loop buttons a swipe up from the music controls?For instance, to access the music player controls, you now how to swipe one from the right. Requiring more taps and swipes is the opposite of progress.
If you like your Music player without Apple Music shoehorned in, don't update to i OS 10. If you're on an older version of i OS, you'll still be able to send the gun emoji, but the recipient will see a squirt gun.
Apple replaced the gun emoji with a water gun in i OS 10. And when someone on i OS 10 sends you a squirt gun, you'll see a gun.
Message's overhaul, with all of its GIFs and stickers and fancy animations and full screen effects is arguably the best thing about i OS 10.
Same goes for the "Memories" that the revamped Photos app generates using videos and pictures.
i OS 10, like every new release of Apple's mobile operating system, is a compelling update that's full of new features, including a beefed up Messages app, redesigned Apple Music and Maps apps, richer notifications and better widget support.
