7 Hidden features of iOS 10 for iPhone and iPad
It has been quite some time when apple has launched its new iOS 10 for their devices, and as per the apple claim and what we also believe iOS 10 is the best OS till date.




When we talk about the iOS 10, it brings with it a number of cool features and you might have experienced them if you have installed it on your device. While some features are not difficult to find as you can see them as soon as iOS 10 loads up on your device, there are some features that are not that easy to find.

Today in this article we have accumulated the seven such tips which will help you get the maximum out your device.

Search for Images Right from within the Messages App

If you were thinking to send someone an image, then you can do so from the Messages app itself. You no longer have to run to the Google Images website to find an image, save it on your device, and then send it to whoever you wanted to send it to.




When you’re writing a new message in the Messages app, simply tap on the image icon as highlighted above and you will immediately be able to search and get an image for your message.


Have your Device Consume Less Data with Low-Quality Images

All this time when you were sending images to your friends using the Messages app, you were sending high-quality images and you may have surely seen the effect of it on your data usage.

If image quality is not an issue for you, then you can enable low-quality images in the Messages app that will help you save on your data usage. To do that, head to Settings >> Messages on your device and turn on the toggle for Low-Quality Image Mode.

Unsubscribing is now much easier in the Mail app

If you have been receiving a lot of unnecessary newsletters on your device recently and you just don’t have time to find the unsubscribe link and tap on it to unsubscribe from the newsletter, the Mail app makes the task easier for you.

Just open a newsletter in the Mail app on your device and you will instantly see an Unsubscribe button on the top. One tap on it and you will be unsubscribed from the newsletter you’re currently viewing on your device.





Send Read Receipts on a Contact-by-Contact Basis

One of the new features in iOS 10 is that you can now be selective and choose when to send read receipts. Up until iOS 10, you had the option but either you could turn it on for all or turn it off for all. There was no in between.

With iOS 10, you can open a conversation in the Messages app and then tap on the little I icon in the upper-right corner. On the following screen, you should be able to enable or disable read receipts for that particular contact.

Get Rid of All the Notifications at Once

If you have got a number of notifications from a particular app on your device and you want to remove them, you have no way but to manually select the notifications and remove them.




With iOS 10 and a 3D touch-enabled device, you can just 3D touch on the X of an app and you will see an option saying Clear All Notifications to remove all the notifications from that app on your device.

Close All the Safari Tabs at Once

If you’re like me who always has a number of tabs open in the Safari, then it might be an issue for you to manually close each of them when you want to.


With the latest version of Safari in iOS 10, you can quickly close all of the Safari tabs in one go. To do that, what you need to do is make sure you have more than one tabs open in Safari on your iPhone, and then long press on the Done button in the lower-right corner of the screen. You will get a prompt as shown in the above screenshot with an option for closing all the X tabs at once.

Look Up Replaces Define

Earlier when you were working with text on your iOS device, you had the option Define that allowed you to see the definition of a word. That has been replaced by Look Up in iOS 10 that searches more things for that particular word than just showing you the word definition.


It searches the web to let you see what all is there for the chosen word.
