Swap out words with emoji — all with a simple touch. That’s something to Smile about.

iMessage apps.

Easily access your favourite apps to create and share content, make payments and more, without leaving Messages.

Siri. Now open to apps.

Siri works with your favourite apps from the App Store, so you can ask it to book a ride through Olacabs.

Street smarter.

Maps can make proactive suggestions for where you’re likely to go, helping you get to your destinations faster.

Home smart home.

The new Home app lets you turn on lights, unlock doors and even raise your window blinds — all at once if you like.

Rich notifications.

View photos and videos or respond to a message directly in your notifications.

Contextual predictions.

Typing is quicker and easier than ever. When you type something like “I’m available at”, the free time in your calendar pops up as an option.

Been there. Found that.

Search your photos by the people or things in them, like a beach, a football game or a puppy.

Your past, beautifully presented.

The Photos app can help you rediscover cherished memories — like a weekend hike or your baby’s first birthday — and even create beautiful movies out of them.

Multilingual typing.

Now you can type in two languages at the same time without having to switch between keyboards.

Your info. Safe and secure.

Your privacy always comes first. That’s why iOS 10 uses on‑device intelligence to identify the people, objects and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions. And when you do share sensitive data with Apple for services like Siri and Maps, it’s always encrypted and never used to build user profiles.
