iOS 10 to Launch on September 13 With Siri and iMessage Apps

Apple will release the final version of iOS 10 to the public on September 13. The company made the announcement as part of its September 7 product event.

According to Arstechnica, iOS 10 makes wide-ranging changes to the way the Operating System looks and works; the lock screen, notifications, Control Center to name a few which have all been substantially rejiggered. CallKit gives VoIP app makers the ability to look and work just like Apple’s built-in Phone and FaceTime apps, while SiriKit gives developers some hooks into Apple’s virtual assistant.

The iMessage app has gotten a big overhaul not only is it getting its own mini-App Store, but it has also been remade in the mold of richer and more fun platforms like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

The update drops support for a handful of older iPhone hardware lncluding;

  • iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus.
  • iPad 4, iPad Air, and iPad Air 2.
  • Both iPad Pros.
  • iPad Mini 2 and newer.
  • Sixth-generation iPod Touch.
