Apple delivered iOS 10 to the iPhone and iPad as a free update in September 2016 and iOS 10.2.1 in early 2017. Whether you’ve used iOS 10 for months or you just installed it, there is a lot to learn.





Most iPhones are on iOS 10 or on the newer iOS 10.2.1 update that includes new features that we will show you how to use.

So let’s start the list…

Open the iPhone Camera from the Lock Screen

To open the iPhone camera from the lock screen you need to swipe in from the right edge of the screen. On iOS 9 you had to swipe up from the bottom right corner, but that will now only open the Control Center. If you do open the Control Center, you can 3D Touch the camera icon to jump into the camera mode you want.

Delete Stock Apple Apps

iOS 10 lets you delete stock Apple apps. this frees up a very small amount of room and it also allows you to remove them from your Home Screen without stashing them in a folder.
