Update now: iOS 10.1 rolls out with new features

Update now: iOS 10.1 rolls out with new features

We had a lot of expectations for Apple's iOS 10, including a new lock screen and water damage warnings. Just as we thought, iMessages were totally revamped with some pretty cool animation features. And with iOS 10, we can even delete stock Apple apps that take up unwanted space on our home screen.

Of course, there were some hiccups along the way (like pornographic search results in the GIF library). But with most new software there's bound to be glitches and bugs; these problems tend to be solved with a new and improved version.

People who use Apple products can now update to iOS 10.1 by downloading it from their device or from iTunes. The most prominent changes seem to be a new camera effect, upgrades to the "Maps" app, and bug fixes. It's available for 5th generation iPhones and later, 4th generation iPads and later, and 6th generation iPod Touches and later.

People who love to take pictures on the phone will probably enjoy the new camera feature. Unfortunately, only people with an iPhone 7 plus can use it. The "Portrait Camera" effect uses the phone's dual lenses to make the subject of a photo sharp and blurs the background. As long as there's good lighting, your selfies will turn out even better! Maybe they will extend it to all users in a future update.

The changes to the "Map" app only apply to Japan; public transit information in the city is now included in the app. Other cool features include the option to replay iMessage effects and a more detailed workout summary in the "Activity" app on Apple Watches. The fixes include correcting problems such as incorrect contacts' names, music not syncing to the Apple Watch, and Bluetooth connectivity to third-party accessories. Click here for a complete list.
