For information on the security content of Apple software updates:


  1. Are you sure that there is anything new here? It looks just like iOS 10.1.

    I have not been able to get Location Updates to work in background mode in any version of IOS 10 using Apple’s own built-in GPS for example. So, in three versions 10.0, 10.1, and 10.1.1 this ordinary utility is bricked. Very sad. Very bad for Apple.

    SteelSeries Stratus wireless game controller has also been bricked in iOS 10. Quality control seems lacking…bigly.

    1. You have some other issue, I’ve got 4 phones in my family on 10x, and they all do locations fine, if your merely a troll that has nothing better to do then blame Apple for a problem that is more than likely yours, not Apple’s, you’d do a lot better to actually find out what’s wrong than assuming Apple is causing location services to fail for millions, when its clearly not.

      1. I’m not a Troll. I am an app developer and what I said is absolutely true. Perhaps there are some changes in iOS 10 that did not affect apps in iOS 9.3. I can accept that, but not to be informed of the changes that must be made to legacy apps in order for them to run in iOS 10 is not good practice, IMHO.

  2. There are two types of comments:
    1. Small update is an indicator that iOS is falling apart. oh no, tim cook should be fired, etc.
    2. Look! Apple quickly addresses an issue with an update. Hooray for snappy and fast Apple software team!

  3. Great information You Shared. My issue is, as the redundancy for the Gmail app is quite common among all users now, I have two Gmail inboxes including one redundant in them, If I receive all emails in both, then how I can be able to delete the redundant inbox?
