What’s next for iOS?

Mac Format - - 2016 -

It’s not just the iPhone that’s on a tick-tock up­grade cy­cle: iOS is on one too, and with iOS 9’s em­pha­sis on per­for­mance and sta­bil­ity – a def­i­nite ‘tock’ – iOS 10 should be the ‘tick’ that de­liv­ers some in­ter­est­ing new fea­tures. It’ll be launched at WWDC and re­leased in the au­tumn, and might up­set the jail­break­ers: re­ports sug­gest a new se­cu­rity sys­tem, ‘root­less’, may make jail­break­ing im­pos­si­ble.

One thing we ex­pected to see in iOS 9 was a Home app to ac­com­pany HomeKit. With HomeKit-en­abled de­vices ship­ping, that’s a safe bet for iOS 10.

Fancy get­ting Siri to tran­scribe your voice­mail? Ap­ple’s work­ing on it. Ac­cord­ing to Busi­ness In­sider, peo­ple like to leave voice­mail but hate re­ceiv­ing it, and young peo­ple hate it full stop. So, Siri will take a mes­sage, turn it into a text mes­sage and send it to you us­ing iCloud. Siri will also be able to tell call­ers why you can’t take their calls – pre­sum­ably with­out grass­ing you up to the boss.
