Last week we covered 75 new iOS 10 features, and this week we are showcasing an additional 30 new features to be found on the iOS 10 beta.
It’s no secret that Apple’s latest iPhone and iPad software update brings some massive changes along with many not-so-obvious changes to the table. In this video walkthrough, we explore even more of those changes.
Below, you’ll find the full list of features covered in this walkthrough. Of course, there will be other features that we uncover over the course of time, so we’ll be sure to follow up with information pertaining to any new items found in individual breakdowns and compilation posts like this one.

When combined with our previous walkthrough, that’s over 100+ new features in iOS 10 alone. We’re sure there’s additional hidden stuff to be uncovered as well. Needless to say, iOS 10 is a massive upgrade over iOS 9.
Such an update is even more impressive when you consider that iOS 9.3 was a fairly large update in and of itself. iOS 9.3 added new features like Night Shift mode, password-protected Notes, updates to the Activity app and Health app, new 3D Touch shortcuts, and much more.
When you consider that major updates were also revealed for watchOS 3, tvOS 10, and macOS Sierra, then it’s obvious that Apple has been on a frantic tear over the last year.
