Top Story: 9 new features coming to your iPhone and iPad, #6 you'll love

The time has come! Apple has given us a glimpse at what's coming to your iPhones and iPads with iOS 10. Spoiler alert! You're really going to like them. Here's a rundown of what we think you're going to appreciate the most:

1. Message app gets a major overhaul.
So many cool changes are coming to the way we send messages, it's hard to find a place to start. There's now an emoji translator, which will suggest emojis to use instead of words. So for example, if you type "do you want pizza for dinner?" it will replace the word "pizza" with a pizza emoji. 

You'll also be able to send messages with invisible ink, add stickers to photos, full screen animations, .GIFs and handwritten hellos. 

iMessage app will also now have Square Cash built right into it, so you'll be able to order food or shop online and can make the monetary transaction right from your messages app. 

2. Notifications.
No longer will you need to hit the home button to access your messages. The new user experience will display your notifications differently - they will be bigger, brighter and you can access the full notification with 3D Touch rather than unlocking the phone and opening the app. 

3. Transcribe voicemail.
You'll never have to listen to a voicemail again. There's going to be a new option within iOS 10 that will automatically transcribe your voicemails. 

4. Siri improvements.
Siri has finally been opened up to third-party developers. That means Siri will now be able to do things like send messages using What'sApp or grab you a ride.
