Turn your iPhone camera into a virtual magnifying glass

Thanks to a new accessibility feature called Magnifier, iOS 10 users can use their iPhone camera to really zoom in on text or an object at a distance. To enable this feature, head on over to Settings > General > Accessibility > Magnifier. Once enabled, you can activate the Magnifier by triple clicking on the home button. If you’re wondering why you can’t just use the built-in Camera app to zoom in, note that the zoom feature is a lot more powerful with Magnifier.

Quickly access your camera from the lock screen

If you’re looking to take a photo and time is of the essence, iOS 10 makes it easier and quicker than ever to call up the Camera app into action without having to first unlock your device. From the lock screen, simply swipe to the right and iOS will open up the Camera app.

Animate your live wallpaper and live photos

Live wallpapers are special wallpapers that can animate for a brief amount of time when interacted with. Live photos have the same functionality, and can be set as live wallpapers, thereby adding a new level of personality to your device. After setting your live wallpaper, simply press down on it while on the lock screen to activate the feature. If you set a live photo, you’ll be able to briefly relive the moment you captured it.

Unlock phone without pressing the Home button

Apple changed the way you unlock your iPhone via the lock screen with the release of iOS 10. You can no longer swipe to unlock it, which will surely take long-time iPhone users a while to get used to. There is another way to unlock the screen, however, and it involves Touch ID. Provided you’ve already set the feature up — which you can do by going to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and toggling iPhone Unlock to on — go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button and toggle Rest Finger to Open to on. Now, you can unlock you iPhone by placing your finger on the Home button.

Quickly access related photos

In addition to Apple Music and Maps, Apple’s Photos app in iOS 10 was also graced with an extensive overhaul. One of the more intriguing new features enables users to swipe up on a photo whereupon a list of related photos and videos will appear underneath.

Find your misplaced Apple Watch with ease

Assuming that you have an Apple Watch running watchOS 3 (and there’s really no reason why you wouldn’t want to upgrade to watchOS 3), iOS 10 allows users to find their Apple Watch via the tried and true Find My iPhone app. From within the app, iOS 10 users can erase the contents of their Apple Watch, place it in Lost Mode, or simply have the device play a sequence of sounds (assuming the watch is connected to the Internet) for easy tracking.

Quickly browse through only your unread emails

From within the mail app, if you tap on the icon located in the lower left hand corner of the screen, Mail will only show you a list of unread messages. Hitting the icon again will bring you back to the ‘everything’ view.

Intelligent photo searching

With iOS 10, searching for photos is much more advanced as users can now search for photos by specific people (thanks to facial recognition) and even by environment or things in the photo. For example, users can do a search for any and all photos that have a dog pictured or any photos that feature a beach. As the photo from Apple below demonstrates, granular searches are even possible, allowing users to search for photos from different beaches.
