So this fall Apple will debut the new software update and I couldn’t be more excited. For the past few months, I’ve been using the beta version. With the beta version, I’ve been able to experience iOS10, but just barely. With all the glitches and bugs, my phone suffers a little bit with the download. Apple released a BETA 3 version July 19, 2016 to developers. “Apple steadily iterates as it forges on through the Beta release cycle, and there are always things constant changing.”
Speaking on changes, I am in love with the new messages features. I am very enthusiastic, especially in my narrative writing. These new features hold a special place in my heart because of my extra use of exclamation points and capitalized characters, used to get my point across.Explanation points are no longer needed. The new message bubbles, have options. Choose from slam, loud, gentle, or invisible ink, to send your message. My personal favorite is slam, if you haven’t already guessed it.
In addition to new bubble options, you can personalize it more and write it out, no stylus needed. Handwritten messages are back at it again, but in the palm of our hands. Write it out and add a screen animation; which is by far the greatest addition. Sending “Happy Birthday” or “Congrats” will never be the same, thanks to iOS10. Considering my phone is my laptop, and planner, I‘m constantly jumping between apps. Siri hip to them all, suggesting the top four in ‘Siri’s Suggestions,’ click show more and that and your top eight apps are there for your convenience.
iOS 10 has it’s cons though, like Facebook and twitter crashing. My phone doesn’t move as fast (could definitely be from lack of storage), but regardless I have to constantly delete photos and messages to keep that notification from popping up. I KNOW I’M LOW ON STORAGE, YOU TOLD ME 3 MINUTES AGO. Needless to say, I make it work. If you want to be impatient like the rest of us who have bits and pieces of iOS 10, check google the link to the BETA versions and go for what you know. But I suggest being patient and just waiting a few more months, for the final cut for iOS10.
Remember to LOVE you and LOVE your journey.
