As with previous years, Apple is widely expected to show off its next-gen iOS 10 mobile operating system at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. Very little is known about the iOS 10 that would power the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. There is still four months to go before we can get the first look at the new OS. But British designer Sam Beckett has put together a concept video with some interesting new features.
It integrates 3D Touch with Control Center toggles
The concept imagines improvements in the Control Center. Apple fans have been expecting a greater degree of customization in Control Center. It shows 3D Touch integration with different Control Center toggles. As a result, you can force touch the WiFi toggle not only to turn on WiFi, but also select the network to join. The concept also allows users to choose which toggles they want to appear in the Control Center, and where.
Last year’s iOS largely focused on under the hood changes to boost performance and enhance user experience. The iOS 10 is expected to be heavy on new features. Latest reports suggest that the upcoming OS will include a feature similar to Google Street View. Another new feature would be the iCloud Voicemail that will use Siri to transcribe voice messages and answer phone calls.
Expect some exciting new features in iOS 10
The iOS 10 is also said to bring a new app called Home, which will take Apple’s work on HomeKit to a new level. The Home app would be designed to let you control all your smart home appliances from one central hub. There is also rumored to be an update to the Find My Friends app. According to a patent filing by Apple, it could detect where your friends are and whether they are available to talk.
Shortly after unveiling the iOS 10, Apple would push out the operating system to developers for testing. A MacRumors report claims that there is only one possible week for WWDC if Apple hosts the event at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, where it has been taking place since 2007. That narrow window available at the venue is June 13-17.
