  • Messages: Have you ever replied to a text with just “haha”, “ok”, “yes”, and/or “no”? This new software enables you to click on the other persons’ message and add an image that relates to those simple words, whether you agree, disagree, find it funny, exciting or questioning. Now, you can also send messages with features like Invisible Ink, where you have to touch the screen to discover what’s underneath it! You can wish happy birthday with a balloon effect, send a handwritten note or even wish a Happy 4th of July with a fireworks effect.
  • Bedtime: This is probably one of the best iOS 10 software features Apple has to offer. If you have problems remembering to go to bed early or at the right time, here’s bedtime feature. Basically, you have to set up your wake time,according to how many hours you need to get a good rest, and it will remind you 15-30-45 minutes earlier, so you can get ready and get that a good night’s sleep.

No more worries! Find my Car is one of the new iOS 10 software features that makes Siri smarter than ever. Now, Siri detects when you’re driving and drops a pin at the location you stop at so you can easily find it later.
