Top 5 hidden iOS 10 features
Apple announced a lot of features are coming to iOS 10.
Like a really wacky messages app.
But, Apple kept some of the most interesting features quiet.
Here are the top five hidden features in iOS 10.
At number five, iPad as a homekit hub.
Apple has made a big deal that the Apple TV can be used as your smart home hub.
However, it did not mention that iOS 10 will allow the iPad to become a hub, as well.
A hub will let you control your smartphone gear when you're not at home.
And looks like Apple understands that your iPad, may be less mobile than your iPhone.
At number four, control center with 3D touch.
Apple's control center brings some nifty new features in IOS 10.
We saw it'll feature more than one page, including a dedicated music panel.
And a panel for Apple's new smart home app.
Control center will also include new 3D touch functions.
When you 3D touch the flashlight, you'll get brightness options.
When you 3D touch the camera app, you'll get options for recording a video or taking a selfie.
Unfortunately, a 3D touch on the upper settings like wi-fi, does nothing.
Fix that Apple.
At number three, Maps knows where you parked.
In iOS 10, Apples Maps app can mark where you parked your car on a map.
If your trip does not end at your home location, the Maps app will do this automatically.
The Maps app will even give you directions back to your car Number two, optimize storage in music.
During WWDC Apple explained a new optimized storage feature in Mac OSCR.
Mac OS would automatically move files to the cloud to free up space on your Mac.
But did you know there's an optimized storage feature for music in IOS 10.
If your iPhone is low on space, it can remove music that you have not played in a while.
You can chose to allocate from four gigabytes The 32 gigabytes per music.
At one number being able to delete Apple's apps there has been a lot of excitement about being able to get rid of Apple's apps from IOS 10.
So here is the real deal on this feature Apple Senior VP Craig Federighi said those apps are not really being deleted.
Instead, you're removing user data and hosts.
We're all hoping that this is just a first step and that maybe by the time ios10 rolls around this year we'll have the ability to use non-apple apps as our default apps.
It'd be amazing.
But I don't know if it's gonna happen.
