This Is The iOS Update We’ve All Been Waiting For

About time, Apple!

  • Apple's annual WWDC Conference took place in San Francisco on Monday, 13 June. As usual, it was packed with significant upgrades to iOS and its other operating systems.

    • During the two-hour event, Apple execs gave a rundown of all the enhancements coming to the iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Mac OS X.

  • OS X has a new name, Apple Watch gets a nifty upgrade and Apple Music is getting an image overhaul

    • OS X has been renamed to macOS, and the upcoming iteration will be called Sierra. The beta version will be launching in July with the final version releasing later in the year. One of the biggest features of Sierra is continuity over all Apple devices. With its Universal Clipboard, users are able to copy and paste images and documents across devices.

    • The new watchOS will help the Apple Watch to load much faster, thanks to its background refreshing feature. Other new features include a keyboard called "Scribble" that wearers can use to respond to a message by drawing.

    • Some of the features include the ability to display song lyrics during playback and improved discovery options in the Browse and For You sections.

  • While all these announcements are cool and much expected from the tech giant, one upgrade stood out from the rest.

    Starting with iOS 10, users will be able to delete the company's built-in apps like Maps, Calculator and Compass!

    • It's about time, eh?

  • Users who've downloaded the developer beta are confirming the change

  • Apple has also released a Help page on how to remove the built-in apps

    • Apple CEO Tim Cook said last September that the company is looking to give users more flexibility to their devices. Well, looks like the man kept to his word.

  • The developer beta version of iOS 10 is available now, with the public beta coming in July

    • It will officially be available for most iPhones and iPads later this year (most likely before the new iPhone releases).

  • Apple recently picked a Malaysian's video to be featured in their ad campaign!

  • Is Apple ditching the 16GB storage for the upcoming iPhone 7?
