Sharing is caring!

The recent update from Apple has been referred to as one of the biggest in iOS history. However, those who have started to use the iOS 10 stated that there were issues behind it. According to some, it will no longer support older Apple devices. In fact, they have suffered initial problems at installation.

Only Newer Devices Get iOS 10

This new update has been designed for those with iPhone 5 or later, iPad mini 2 or later, iPad 4th generation or later, 6th generation iPod touch or later, and the iPad Pro range. If you have Apple devices that are older than these models, updating it via iTunes might not be possible anymore.

Better Widgets and Features than Ever

The size of the update will vary depending on the type of device. With the iOS 10 update, which is a major release, the size will range from 600MB to 1.2GB. Apart from that, the new firmware offers tons of new features and developments for your devices. Such will include enhancements for the Messages, Maps, Photos, Siri, Home, and Music.

Difficulty to Have Devices Jailbroken

Nevertheless, there are some drawbacks for some Apple devices after installing iOS 10. Although it provides more advanced features than its last update from iOS 9.3.5, iOS 10 significantly block the recent jailbreak from Pangu. Accordingly, it is highly unlikely that developers working on it will have it fixed any time soon.

Installation and Incompatibility Issues

Moreover, lots of iOS device users experienced some installation problems which requires them to reset through iTunes. Those who have already applied the update also have issues including battery life, sluggish performance, and some incompatibility with some third-party accessories and Bluetooth glitches.

Final Thoughts

As opposed to the iOS 9 upgrade, which only focused on security patches alone, the iOS 10 is more on added features. Such will include new notifications, improved widgets, iMessage overhaul, Raise to Wake, Smarter Siri, and Apple Maps, among others. Perhaps it is not hard to decide on upgrading to the latest IOS 10 version, given the advantages and disadvantages.
