Cupertino-based Apple Inc. is expected to launch iOS 10 in June this year with iPhone 7 to anticipated with the latest iOS preinstalled.
iOS 10 rumors and speculations have picked up steam that can be considered quite reasonable, considering the next iOS version to arrive at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) due just next month. Here is the list of few features and improvements that have a high probability of integrating into iOS 10.
Hiding stock Apple apps
Taking a cue out of Android, Apple might introduce the means to hide standard Apple apps that come pre-installed on iOS devices. The ability to hide such apps will help to tidy things up a bit.
Apple Music app
The app is expected to receive an overhaul with simplification of certain things in mind. For instance, the clear look of the app might see a replacement with a simple UI. Further, Apple Connect will give more prominence to the album art through itself – the social zone for the musicians to interact with their fans that will remain intact.
There also are rumors suggesting lyric support to arrive as default in Apple Music, something that would save users from installing third party apps for the same. There will also be a Browse option that replaces the ‘New’ tab while simplifying the ‘For You’ section as a whole.
The standard Apple mobile digital wallet is expected to come with support for payment on mobile sites. Users will be able to authorize the payments using either Touch ID or the passcode.

The photos app is expected to receive quite a few upgrades with some likely to source from iPhoto. For instance, users might get the ability to edit EXIF info while there will also be touch-based brush controls to adjust brightness, contrast or other settings on the images.
iCloud Voicemail system
According to the reports, Apple is working on a revamped voicemail where Siri would have a greater role to play. For instance, Siri will answer calls and transcribe the messages that user will get to read instead of listening. Similarly, Siri will also be able to inform the caller if the user is unable to answer the call, and if not, specify what is preventing the user from answering the call.
It is going to be Apple’s take on the hot new Internet of Things (IoT) segment that will offer centralized control over other appliances that connect to the Apple ecosystem. The scheme will likely make the need to download individual apps ineffective and look after Siri’s integration so that users get their job done with the help of voice commands.
Overall, it’s going to be a significant update that users can look forward to, which is expected to release during the WWDC event next.
