iOS 10 Features: The long anticipated wait for all iOS users is now over as Apple has officially the much awaited iOS 10. With the announcement of the release of iOS 10, one of the greatest changes iOS users will see is how an app appears after they’re done updating it.
For sure, the Lock screen in iOS 10 has gotten what can be termed as a complete and a very different functionality. Apart from the larger fonts and all that, let us delve into 3 of the areas where we see major changes in terms of 3D Touch.
iOS 10 Features: New 3D Touch in-depth look
1. Lock Screen Widgets
In iOS 10 features, iOS 10 widgets play a major role in giving data by means of application symbols, using 3D Touch shortcuts through the Home screen, Notification Center as well as the Lock screen. Like Today View widgets on the earlier versions of iOS, the widgets on the Lock screen can be removed, added, rearranged, and in some cases modified in size. It also includes a convenient Spotlight search bar, is right above the current date and time.
Clients can use 3D Touch gestures on Spotlight to query for items directly into areas right from the Lock Screen
2. Music Controls
This is one of the iOS 10 Features, Everything on the music controls is somewhat larger in size. The content is larger, and the sliders and scrubbers are more extensive. The little vertical line on the time scrubber has been replaced by a little ball, and the ball used for the volume scrubber is presently marginally bigger.
Delaying a track that is playing has the same impact on the album art as it does in the stock Music application and gets smaller when paused and increases in size when it is played. Unlike the older iOS versions, pressing the Home button no more hides music controls on the Lock screen because the Home button is now solely dedicated to unlocking the device.
3. Slide to Unlock
The renowned “Slide to open“, that has been an iPhone staple since its actual inception is no more. Rather, slide to open has been duly replaced by “Press home to unlock“. Pressing the iPhone’s Home button is the way to opening your gadget in iOS 10.
On the off chance that you have Touch ID enabled on your iOS device, pressing the Home button with a registered fingerprint mark will unlock it. In the event that you don’t have Touch ID empowered, then squeezing the Home button prompts you to input the password.
These are what we think are some of the greatest improvements when it comes to 3D Touch exclusively on iOS 10 features. In case we missed out any important feature, do discuss it in the comments section below and share this article on social media.
