iOS 10 has been released back in June 2016 by Apple and a few months later, in September, the new operating system was pushed out to all compatible iDevices. The new version of iOS was a noticeable one, as it came with new features and options.
First of all, users have noticed the new redesigned lock screen where notifications are displayed in full preview, a new smart home application called HomeKit, a redesigned music application and the option to delete Apple’s stock applications.
Apple has recently released iOS 10.1 update, which comes with a new portrait mode for the iPhone 7 Plus handset, and which brought “bokeh”, a feature for the dual cameras that blurs the background, while focusing on the person in the foreground. Along with improvements, some locations from Japan have been updated on the Maps application. The Messages application has also received fixes for some glitches and the operating system functionality has received some improvements and fixes.
iOS 10.1: Should You Upgrade?
If you have a device that runs on an operating system older than iOS 10 and you enjoy using a jailbroken iOS, then you should stick with iOS 9.3.3 or whatever operating system you’re using. There is no jailbreak version for the iOS 10 and iOS 10.1 yet, so this is one of the main reasons why many iDevice owners have decided to stick to iOS 9.3.3. However, if you want to use the new features and options, but run the original version of iOS 10.1, then you should upgrade right away.
We agree that, at first, the iOS 10.1 might seem a small update compared to iOS 10, but it actually comes with a good amount of fixes that were not included in the change log, such as: updated modem drivers and carrier firmware. These two updates will make sure that your iPhone devices will not randomly lose cellular connection. In addition, some improvements have been brought to Bluetooth, Activity syncing and AirPlay Mirroring.
iOS 10.1 can now be installed on iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and other older (beginning form iPhone 5). The same version of iOS can be installed on iPad Pro, iPad 2, iPad Mini 2 and the 6th generation of iPod Touch.
