Apple has come up with the next level of OS named iOS 10 for iPhones and iPads. This enhanced version consists is graced with 3D touch gestures. This could make the handset live simply by picking up your handset. In iOS 10, Apple made an attempt to open its exclusive features like Siri and Apple Map for third party developers. This helps you to get connected with number of applications developed other than by Apple. I would like to give an overall view on the special features of new iOS 10.
