New features in Apple iOS 10

1. Voicemail Transcriptions

If you are unable to take a call, or you need to catch up on some old voicemail's, it's not always ideal to have to sit and listen to your granddad talk for 3 minutes about where he thinks he lost his glasses. Thankfully, Apple has introduced this nifty new feature (which is currently still in beta) to help transcribe your messages for you.

2. Search for people, places and things in pictures

Recently, I was searching for a photo on my phone and I couldn't track it down. Then I read about a great new feature introduced by Apple that lets you search for photos by typing in a name that relates to the photo, so you can now easily search for objects, people and places. For example, type in the search bar 'pool' or 'beach' and you get to see all the pictures that contain a pool or beach! How they do that I do not know, but it is certainly very useful!

3. Magnifier

Another useful feature in iOS 10 is the magnifying glass, which lets you use your camera as a magnifying glass, to help you see small objects. You can turn this on by going to Settings> General> Accessibility> Magnifier. If you have switched it on, then press three times on the home button while using the camera to zoom in!

4. Bubble and screen effects

iMessage has now added new effects to the service. You can now send messages in a more fun manner when pressing the send button. There are a wide variety to choose from, including bubbles, lasers and fireworks. It definitely brings a fun new aspect to sending messages.

5. New emoticons!
