Apple has just released the second beta of iOS 10, which can be installed on iPad 4, iPad Air 1, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and iPod touch (sixth generation). The operating system will be officially launched alongside the upcoming iPhone 7, but some of its new features have already been revealed and more will be showcased until September. However, let’s live in the present and see what we can do in the upcoming iOS 10.
Perform Different Actions By Swiping Left To Right And Vice Versa
If you swipe right to left on the lockscreen, you’ll open Camera app, and if you swipe left to right, you’ll have access to music, weather, and other app supporting this mode. By swiping down, you’ll access Notifications and you’ll add or remove widgets by tapping the Edit button from the bottom of widget windows.
Open Two Safari Windows
Split View is a feature that allows iPad users to open two applications side by side. But, why not opening two Safari browser windows? You will open the plus symbol to open a second tab, then tap, hold and drag it to the right of the X. The browser window will shrink and a grey area will appear, to which will be dragged the second tab.
Raise To Wake
Raise to Wake is a feature that can be found in Settings>Display % Brightness and by enabling it, you will have instant access to Notifications view when raising the device. Don’t use this feature if you have the habit to leave your device in public spaces.
To quick reply to an incoming iMessage, you will double tap on the incoming one and you’ll see some punctuation marks: question and exclamation, or emojis such as thumbs up, a love heart or haha.
You can sort messages to be displayed from oldest to newest and vice versa by going to Settings>Mail. There’s also a new filter button which you can use to apply filters (Show Unread Messages) to a Mailbox and the Move feature is able to predict which folder you intend to move a message to.
