WASHINGTON, June 16, 2016 – There are a legion of dedicated nerds out there that always need to have the newest, latest gadget and the most up-to-the-minute software upgrades. But sometimes that rush to be first causes more harm than excitement.
According to a piece in Forbes, iOS 10 Has Three Nasty Surprises, Apple’s latest software beta release for it ubiquitous iPhone (and less ubiquitous iPad) is as quirky and buggy as those early iOS 9 iterations. Things that need to be fixed to make the final edition of iOS 10 a happier experience include (but are not limited to) the following:
Missing Dark Mode – A dark mode has been high on the list of iOS requests. Yet once again, Apple didn’t deliver it.
Half Hearted Widgets Apple has left them missing from the homescreen.
Basic Keyboard Omissions keep Apple users frustrated, as others have long had the ability for a one handed functionability and swipe typing.
iMessage Exclusivity – Apple was widely expected to bring iMessage to Android, which would greatly expand the scope for its popular service. It did.
Missing file manager – iPhone users may not require this. But with the iPad Pro line desperately trying to pull users away from their laptops, they’ll need to implement this to succeed.
No notifications overhaul – Yes, notifications have been upgraded in the lockscreen. But when compared to Android’s superior implementation, the biggest iOS weakness in this regard is its notification system. It looks like we’ll have to wait another year.
So as iPhone, iPad and iGadget developers and (not necessarily authorized) fans rushed to download a beta version of iOS 10, it looks like non-developers, at least, are best advised to delay or reverse that action. The following IBTimes article helps us out with doing just that.
