My iPhone doesn’t even feel like MINE anymore!!!
i0S 10 arrived yesterday and, so like an iPhone user, I updated my phone last night. It’s seriously like having an all new phone, but I can’t tell if that’s a good thing or not yet.
Here’s what I’ve noticed so far that’s different, from my own, limited experience:
1. iMessage is SO DIFFERENT. They’ve added so many new features to it, I can barely keep up. You can draw messages inside your iMessage now (pictured below):
You also have an entire LIBRARY of iMessage stickers to choose from to send to friends and family to appropriately express your emotions (pictured below):
The only thing I DON’T really like about the iMessage now, or, I guess the update in general, is the new sounds they have for typing on the keyboard!! It makes like, a popping noise, instead of a keyboard-y noise. Do your update, you’ll see what I mean!
2. Unlocking Your Phone is SO HARD.
If you’re having a hard time opening up your phone with the new iOS 10, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It’s because they’ve gotten rid of the “slide to unlock” and now you have to PRESS the home button to open your phone (as pictured below):
I just can’t get used to it. RIP “slide to unlock”…you’ll be missed.
3. STILL NO NEW EMOJIS.
I have been waiting ALL YEAR for all these new emojis that we were promised, and update after update, THEY STILL AREN’T HERE. The only thing that’s really changed, is that they’ve gone with the squirt gun over the actual gun (pictured below):
I JUST WANT MY EMOJIS. HOW ELSE WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCURATELY EXPRESS MY LOVE FOR BACON AND AVOCADO?! Ok, that was dramatic. But still.
So far, those are really the only things I’ve noticed that have made an impact, but believe me, there are PLENTY more. You can get a full update on everything new in iOS 10 right here!
Good luck, and godspeed.
