Apple launched the new mobile system upgrade at the tech giant’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco on 12 September 2016, but the upgrade roll-out didn’t quite go according to plan.

Hundreds of iPhone users complained on Twitter that installing iOS 10 caused their iPhones to shut down and not restart, however these types of teething problems with the launch of a new version of iOS are not uncommon. In fact, Apple Inc has advised users over the past two updates to back-up their iPhones and iPads using iCloud before attempting to install the latest mobile OS.

Now that Apple claims that all the initial problems have been overcome, iOS 10 looks set to offer its users a wonderful new array of features. Along with overhauling some of its core iOS applications, Apple iOS 10 will give developers access to Siri, Messages and Maps, a new HomeKit app and integrations for the iPhone app. Plus a very good level of accessibility from previous versions flows through to the latest system upgrade.

All of the benefits of what Apple and the major tech experts both say is an 'essential update', are highlighted in a short video about the iOS 10 upgrade.
