Today’s the day. Apple is releasing iOS 10. Here are a handful of new features you can look forward to!
Apple Maps has also received a makeover. Maps can be panned and zoomed to allow users to explore the area around them. Directions consider traffic conditions and suggest alternate routes. Apple Maps can suggest nearby places as well as routes to places it knows you will be going to such as work or a calendar appointment. The API is also open to 3rd parties so users can access relevant features of their favorite mobile apps without ever needing to leave the Maps application. Apple Maps also includes a new feature that will automatically remember where you park. That’s one less thing to worry about for your next trip to the theme park!
While many people were unimpressed by the lack of unique innovations in the new iPhones announced earlier this month, hopefully the improvements to the software will make up for it.
