MacDailyNews Take: If you’ve been eschewing the iOS 10 public betas and waited for the official release instead, you’ve likely to be very happy with the upgrade from iOS 9!

Note: iOS 10 supports the following devices:
• iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus
• 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2
• iPod Touch 6th generation


  1. Not updating my iphone 6, tried the beta a few weeks ago but did not like it very much. There are some aspects that are very 3d touch centered, like notifications… For iphone 6s/7 users it will probably be great tough.

        1. While that may be true, if you don’t currently have a 3D Touch capable device, you aren’t going to miss it. With my iMac I use a mouse, but it doesn’t keep me from upgrading just because Apple adds extra touch features for trackpad owners. Same thing here. If you have the hardware, you get the extra feature.

        2. Also… it doesn’t take “more” steps to get stuff done… it takes the same amount of steps as it did before in other versions of iOS. If you happen to have a device with 3D Touch, you’ll have access to shortcuts.

  2. Not upgrading to iOS 10.
    Too much social media/imessaging emphasis and not enough emphasis on other productivity functionality.
    No real substance in this initial release.
    I will wait for future updates.
    If nothing substantive throughout iOS 10 development, I may skip iOS 10, altogther.
    I totally skipped iOS 8, I can do it again for iOS 10 if it offers notning of use to me.
    I have the large iPad Pro and I would like Apple to do more to make that device more “Pro” than it is now.
    Adding iMessaging improvements, like digital stickers,animated stickers and other messaging animations does not add anything “pro” to my iPads.
    I may update update my 6th Gen iPod Touch, not sure, but not my iPad Pro.
    Both my 64 GB iPad 2 and 3 models are done with iOS.
    So, I don’t have to worry anymore about these any longer.
    So far, the initial release of iOS 10 appears to be a waste of precious data space on my iDevices
