According to the Japanese site Mac Otakara, Apple is focusing on improving the Photos app in both iOS 10 and OS X 10.12, which are scheduled to be released this fall. The two versions of this application will be at least as awesome as the iPhoto 2.0.1 app for iOS or iPhoto 9.6.1 app for Mac, which have been discontinued in the meantime.
At the moment, we don’t know many details about the features that will be added to Photos, but Mac Otakara reminded of the tools that have been used in iPhoto 2.0.1, for editing EXIF information, as well as the brushes with which was adjusted the brightness etc. The new version of Photos for iOS 10 will bring similar editing tools that can be used on iPhones, but Apple is still mum about the changes. As for the version for OS X, it is believed that the application won’t bring Aperture-level functions.
Apple will surely tell us more about the upcoming OS X 10.12 and iOS 10 operating systems at its WWDC 2016 event, in June, where the company is expect to showcase their new features. What we currently know is that OS X 10.12 will finally receive Siri, the intelligent personal assistant that have been desired by the Mac users for so long. Thanks to it, the users will be able to adjust system settings, open applications, search for information etc.
We remind you that Apple has released the fourth beta of iOS 9.3 which fixed devices affected by the 1970 bug (when the users changed the date to January 1st, 1970 on their 64-bit iPhones or iPads and rebooted them, these devices became bricked). The fix that has been introduced in iOS 9.3 beta 4 will prevent devices from getting bricked if the users accidentally set a date to anything prior to January 1st, 2001. Another change in this beta update is related to the new Night Shift icon, and track names in the Music app will have new star icons next to them.
