iOS 10’s Best New Features: Here’s How To Use Them

Make the most of Apple's biggest free update ever for your iPhone and iPad

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can now update it for free to iOS 10, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. You’ll need 1.1 GB of free space available to complete the download. First, make sure you’re on WiFi and have a good amount of battery juice left. Then, tap on your “Settings” app, tap “General,” tap “Software Update” and scroll down and tap “Download and Install.”

Don’t be afraid! Although some people had problems with iOS 10 when it first came out earlier last week, Apple has smoothed everything out now. And there are some pretty useful and fun new features available now for your iPhone and iPad in iOS 10. Here are some of our favorites, and how to use them.
