iOS 10: Discover all the new features in 20 slides
It took Apple top honchos some 2 hours to get it done, but now that the keynote is over, it's fair to say that Apple's 27th WWDC has officially kicked off. Among other major announcements, such as improvements and new functionality for its watchOS, macOS, and tvOS platforms, dozens upon dozens of changes coming to iOS 10 were also detailed.

If you watched the event live, followed our liveblog, or even went through our detailed piece on all that is new in iOS 10, this particular selection may feel familiar. But if you're just tuning in, or are someone who appreciates his/her news bite-sized, then you're in the right place, at the right time.

Jump right into the slideshow below and join us as we explore every bit of upcoming functionality in iOS 10.

I'm excited for both the attackers and the defenders.

I wonder that these normal features were missing in past 9 iOS versions... And iFans were bragging about feature rich iOS for all these years...

As an android fan, a lot of these didn't really bother me. As WWDC in the summer is more focused on software, I'm saddened they didn't mention any new macbooks. What I found cool tho was the floating windows from notifications (interactive notifications) and uninstall. iOS apps. Open sourcing siri to devs was pretty neat too. Perhaps we can get iMessage for android b4 the week ends? :9

I can't wait to put this on my 6S Plus. IOS 10 is fire. I know some of these features have been around for a bit, but the way they've deeply integrated them so seamlessly is dope. Good job Apple, I'm may just stop criticizing you guys just yet. The 7 Plus had better be awfully good though.

iOS 10 is already better than iOS 9 and it's not even released yet, lol.

I can't wait to get my hands on the 7 Plus. First time in a long time I am excited to get an iPhone. Apple really did bring its A game this time.

No Dark Mode is a big let down.

Android had most of these stuff, like widgets. #comeatme

#comingatyou I had some of these features on my iPhone years before Android did. #L2research

@zeeBomb, stop trolling @Unordinary, jailbreak?

Probably. I wish they'd loosen up on the Jailbreak community like Android has with Rooting. I've got widgets and 3D touch on my 6 with tweaks.

Hopefully, but knowing Apple that is highly unlikely :( But wow, when fandroids brag about root/custom rom features they say "not everyone roots/uses custom roms", now they are bragging about jailbreak features (look at Unordinary's reply to that troll zeeBomb). Double standards much?

Duh. Can't have an iPhone without jailbreaking it.

Tell that to the majority of iPhone users that don't jailbreak their devices.

How exciting man! The updates are truly innovative - Updates to Stock Apps, Lock Screen Widgets and Gesture based Wake, Wow! Truly way to go. Never seen such innovation. Wow again!

its a joke compared to android N new features, lol

9. FluffyBled unregistered

Was thinking the same, not just N new features, but also the assistant and instant apps.

You have real potential to become a clown.

I don't get it, a lot of the "new features of iOS 10" were found within apps and not the OS itself. Apple Pay in Safari, redesigned Photos app, News app, Music app, Maps app... hell, 7 of those new features were in the Messenger app alone.

Integration buddy. Most of this stuff is nothing new but the way implements the features is really what get people excited.

@ibend And your post is a joke too... I wasn't expecting anything mind-blowing... But from the look of things, I must say that now iOS is on par with Android... And lets not forget "consistency" which is the hallmark of iOS... I just wish iPhones were a tad cheaper so even old retired bums (our perhaps; old farts?) like me could afford it... Perhaps I might get a good deal on an iPhone 6 soon, right after the launch of iPhone 7? I'm dying to try an iPhone...! Okay, it might be two generations old, but at least it'll likely run iOS10 and maybe even iOS 11 and 12 too, eh? P.S I get bored easily, hence I've had dozens of smartphones in the past from Nokia to Blackberry to Sony Ericsson!

Poor iOS users. They will be lost in such advance Android interface.

Advanced doesn't necessarily mean better... Android can only DREAM about iOS like functionality, simplicity, consistency, optimization and fluidness... Android is a poor man's OS in all honesty! It definitely works, but it fails miserably when it comes to end user experience and premium "fit and finish"... It looks cheap, dull and agricultural while at the same time cluttered and a tad too busy! I'd have loved Android in my teens when I was bitten by the curiosity bug... But now, I want a simple phone that doesn't need a user manual to operate and just works right or of the box... Hence, I've ditched the idea of buying a Nexus 5X as my future phone.... I've had enough with Android... Now its time to try something different... I've iPhone 6 on my radar now... Lets see...
