Why updating to iOS 10 is better for security

Users who have found their phone bricked must connect it to a computer, open iTunes and then put their device in recovery mode by holding down the home and power buttons. A pop up should appear on iTunes asking you to update or restore. Select "update" to do a new install of iOS 10.

Even though there are some bricking problems reported while updating to iOS10 using the Wifi and all, its better to move to new one.

Users who have found their phone bricked must connect it to a computer, open iTunes and then put their device in recovery mode by holding down the home and power buttons. A pop up should appear on iTunes asking you to update or restore. Select “update” to do a new install of iOS 10.

Important security enhancements

This is the least fun, but the most important reason why you should update as soon as possible.

If you haven’t updated your phone in a while, you might not be protected against some big iOS vulnerabilities like Stagefright. Most of these have been patched in versions between 9.0 and 10.0, but if you’ve been holding off on updating for a while, now is the time.

Raise To Wake

Raise to wake is by far the most exciting feature offered by iOS 10 which brings the engrossing functionality of Apple Smart Watch to the iPhone and iPad. This enthralling feature lights up your iPhone whenever you lift it up and takes you directly to the home screen. The feature was first introduced in Apple Smart Watch before being a part of the iOS ecosystem.
However this specific feature is only compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and all the later versions that are yet to come.

Siri Upgrade

You can now activate your Siri for all the non-apple apps as well. The Siri is based on the prevalent voice control functionality. It’s just that now you’ll be able to use it with almost any app installed in your iPhone.
For instance, you can give direct commands to Siri like, “Send a Whatsapp message to Patrick” or “Skype Andrea that I’m on my way.” You can now even ask siri to solve mathematical problems for you. For instance, “What is 7+1?” or “What is the square root of 256?”

Face Sorting (Photos)

Face Sorting is yet another enthralling feature of iOS 10 which scrutinizes the facial expressions of a person from your saved photos and then sorts and imports all the photos of that person to a specific folder. All these folders are called Smart Albums and somewhat around 11 billion calculations are performed for each photo to create a smart album. All this has been possible by the inception of the finest form of artificial intelligence.

QuickType

QuickType is another engrossing feature that brings the intelligence of Siri to the keyboard. QuickType functionality provides intelligent suggestions to the users while they’re typing. QuickType basically uses contact cues to predict what you’re going to write next. It also helps you save a lot of time that you usually take in typing a particular message. For instance, if someone ask you about your location, then it’ll automatically offer you to share your current location and you can share the location in a single tap.
