Only owners of the iPhone 6S and 7 can fully appreciate all the charm of the new notification system because many things in iOS 10 connected to the 3D Touch. iPhone learned to wake up automatically when you take it in your hand (this is rightly only for the SE, 6S and 7).
Notifications look like cards in iOS 10. We can interact with them on the lock-screen. How does it work: when you take the phone – the screen lights up, we see a notification that an SMS came. Strongly press on the card, the message opens in full size. In the same window, you enter text and send your answer. Using notification on the lock-screen is possible without 3D-Touch – but in this case, the functionality is not quite complete, and do it not so convenient.
The famous signature Slide to Unlock will disappear in iOS 10: you press down on the home button to unlock your iPhone. Swiping from right to left will bring up the camera app. By the way, the music is not put on pause when you make a photo – hurray.
The notification center seriously changed. Widgets acquired new functionality: they are seen on the lock screen. In general, the benefits of which will be more for iPhone owners with 3D Touch. Strongly press the widget – get more information.
Standard messenger iOS got tons of new features, some of them you won’t in WhatsApp, Viber or Telegram.
Preview mode will be available for links – you do not need to use Safari, to look at a picture, or to open the YouTube for watching a video – all displayed in the window posts.
When you type the text you can replace it with a smiley, just a single click, using the special button, which “highlights” available words. The smiles became three times as much. Also, in iOS 10, new types of animated messages will be available: you can write the word by hand or draw something, and the recipient will see not only the result but also the process, line by line.
The same system is in the Apple Watch. Some messages will be able to occupy a full screen, others – will remain invisible until then, until you do not touch them. A separate store will launch for iMessage, where you can, for example, to download stickers.
In addition, the “Messages” learned to analyze the text of messages and provide appropriate answers. Ask, “How are you?” – The program will offer quickly answer, “good”, “normal”, and so on.
“Photo” can analyze images and determine what shown there. you can search for the desired images using keywords. For example typing the word “child” the program will show all pictures, where he is depicted.
In addition, the application detects faces and automatically groups pictures in the appropriate album. For photos of wife – one album, for selfie – second album and so on. The memorable photos and videos displayed in the new section “Memories”. You can make movies from them: the application automatically selects the content and mounts it to the music (it mood, you can choose yourself).
Music application got a global redesign. Fonts became fatter, the interface – simpler and easier. You can search new releases in a special tab “Overview”.
Personal playlists have not gone away. Music is chosen according to your tastes and preferences. Also, you can look at the texts of the songs playing in the application window.
About everything else

The Sound of keyboard clicks and locking of the smartphone were changed. Also, you can hide standard applications (such as “shares”) – press “delete”. Control Center was changed. 3D Touch works in it (it can be used, for example, with adjusting the intensity of the flashlight).
