A Quick Recap of WWDC 2016: iOS 10

The biggest thing announced at WWDC 2016 was without a doubt iOS 10. So let's get right into it.

iOS 10

iMessage received a huge update. You can have your text bubbles move in different ways to add more meaning to your texts. You can send drawings and stickers. In addition, when you send a message, add an animation or put your words in invisible ink, where the recipient will slide their finger over the message to reveal the words. Next up, Siri is finally available for developers. Ask Siri to request an Uber or to send money to someone. There's a new Home app that lets you take control of your HomeKit enabled devices. Another new addition is the new lock screen. It should be noted that you no longer slide to unlock. You now press to unlock. Sliding will display widgets and other information. There are a ton of more features in iOS 10, but I felt I covered the most interesting ones. If you wish, you can view the others on Apple's website
