    iOS 10 is more powerful than iOS 9. I am using the iOS 10 beta on my daily usage device from the day first, and so far it is good to carry.

    Is that supposed to say “Developers *can now* connect Siri to third-party apps”?

    Way to demonstrate how Siri always acts like we talk with marbles in our mouths 😂

    iOS 10 has improved a lot comparing with iOS 9. I’ve upgraded and the system runs smooth. I like the new features of iPhone photos, especially use Siri to retrieve the photos. Now I can easily search from hundreds of photos with no hands and I don’t have to stare at the screen at all time. But people have to make full preparation before the update. This article tells some tips about iOS 10 and iOS 10 update. http://bit.ly/2cWRRsi

    In IBooks, they removed the “define” feature and replaced it with “look up”. Sometimes it doesn’t even provide a definition and when it does, the dictionary SUCKS, It wasn’t broken so why change it?!?

    I am having all kinds of problems with IOS 10.0.2. Words with Friends, for example, seems to be really affected. I used to be able to slide my letters up to any square on the board, now half the time they slide to the wrong space. Also, I don’t want my phone to always map itself — it seems like enabling the location tells every application where I am.

    Sure, most of us have difficulty adjusting – leaving the comfort zone. I am not happy with it because the phone seems to ‘think’ it knows what I want – how I want to think, how I want to work. I am not a machine and prefer to not sub that out to a machine. I would go on but on one would read it! As the saying goes, “if it’s not broken, fix it until it is.” Truly this is their motto – but it keeps them employed!

    It seems like there are two groups of users–ones that think all these emojis, instant messaging and all these widgets are the greatest thing since sliced bread–and the other group of users that just find all this crap annoying, obnoxious and interferes with getting work done–not to mention the battery drain of all this garbage changes…It sounds to me like the people who use their phone for playtime are in the first group–and those who use it for work are in the second group Apple is apparently unaware there is the second group.

    Did Apple fix the d— Ringer – Alert(s) – Alarm(s) – Notification(s) Volume Control with this new iOS10.1 update?

    Or, does one still have to unlock the iPhone (6), make sure the iTunes Music app is closed (and, not in control of the volume buttons) to be able to adjust the Ringer – Alert(s) – Alarm(s) – Notification(s) Volume Control?

    (Please do not confuse the Music player “Volume” Control with the Ringer – Alert(s) – Alarm(s) – Notification(s) Volume Control).
