10 awesome hidden or little known iOS 10 features Apple didn't talk about
With iOS 10, Apple introduced those in-your-face interface changes its predecessor couldn't, as iOS 9 was mainly focused on under-the-hood optimizations, like speed and security. We have a brand new Lock screen with rich notifications, widgets and quick camera access, a more interactive Peek preview that utilizes 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, as well as a brand new Apple Music.

Not only that, but Apple decoupled the stock apps from the operating system for faster updates, and significantly enhanced iMessage, making it possibly the most full-featured secure chat app out there. That's not all, however, as when we installed the iOS 10 Developer Beta 1 we noticed a veritable smorgasbord of even smaller, but svelte features that Apple didn't have time to mention in the keynote, or list them on its website.

We aren't even talking about the new folder expansion or app launch animations, too - these are cool, but nonessential. We don't know if and in what form this new stuff will make it into the final commercial iOS 10 release, but here are some of them to give you a taste of what's in store once the big update hits your handset.
