Other Features of the iOS 10
Security iOS 10 uses on-device intelligence to identify the people, objects and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions. And ensures that when you do share sensitive data with Apple for services like Siri and Maps, it’s always encrypted and never used to build user profile thereby keeping your information safe and secure.
Improved SiriSiri is now accessible by apps from the App Store,e.g. you can ask it to send money to someone with Square.
