Disable 'Read' receipts in Messages

In case you don't want others to know if you've read their message or not, you can easily disable the 'read' receipts that will appear in the message thread. To do so, just head to Settings > Messages, and then flick the "Send Read Receipts" toggle off.

Access the camera from the lock screen by swiping left

Up until iOS 10, users had to swipe up in order to launch the camera straight from the lock screen, but in iOS 10, you can no longer do this. To open up the camera straight from your lock screen you now need to swipe left.

Raise to Wake

Only available on the iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPhone SE, and iPhone 7/7 Plus, this feature enables for an intuitive, no-frills device wake up. Simply raise your iPhone up and the display should light up, showing you the lock screen with any pending notifications you might have.

Access your widgets panel from the lock screen

While they've been around for a couple of years, iOS widgets were not that well implemented in earlier iOS version. This all got changed with iOS 10, which introduced a new widget panel that is accessible by swiping all the way to left on your home or lock screens, where Spotlight search usually resides. Of course, you can enable, disable, and switch the places of all available widgets.

Prevent spam calls

With iOS 10, you can now keep spam callers away by blocking their numbers. In order to do so, you will need to download an app from the App Store, which will identify potential spam calls and save you from these. One of the more popular ones is Hiya; you can view your spam-blocking apps by going to Settings > Phone > Call Blocking and Identification.

iOS 9 ushered in system-wide support for 3D Touch, but this hardware feature was previously unavailable on the lock screen. This changed for the good with iOS 10 - users can now 3D Touch their notifications, which will provide a rich preview and the ability to reply inline.

You can '3D Touch' the Control Center shortcuts, too

Apart from the lock screen, you can now use 3D Touch with the shortcuts in Control Center now, too. By doing so you will access a handful of useful shortcuts: for example, '3D-touching' your flashlight fires up a menu that lets you choose between three different levels of flashlight intensity.

Use Memories to create slideshows from your pictures

Arriving alongside iOS 10 is a neat addition to the Photos app, dubbed Memories, which scans your library and essentially creates thematic movies from the hundreds or thousands of photos you might have. It's a neat feature, though not that major. In order to see said movies, head to the Photos app and hit the Memories icon on the bottom bar. You can edit your memories by adding or removing pictures, trimming any included video clips, changing the music track that plays in the background, and so on.

Automatic dictionary switching

Although Apple opened up the garden with iOS 8 and has allowed third-party keyboards on the iPhone ever since the stock QuickType keyboard remains the best one you could possibly use on your iDevice. It became even better with iOS 10 - you no longer need to switch between your keyboard languages, as the QuickType keyboard now identifies the language you're beginning to type in and automatically switches to it. To enable this feature, head to General > Dictionary, and download dictionaries for 2 or more languages. Ah, the good ol' switcheroo!

Hail an Uber straight from Maps

The Maps app also got a couple of useful improvements, with one of the most important ones being the added support for ridesharing apps, like Uber. To do so, fire up Maps, search for your destination, then Get Directions, then Get a Ride, and you will be allowed to choose between.
