There are new features to some apps: Messages has additional emojis and third-party apps can extend functionality in iMessage, Maps has a redesigned interface and additional third-party functions, the Home app manages "HomeKit"-enabled accessories, Photos has algorithmic search and categorization of media known as "Memories", and Siri is compatible with third-party app-specific requests, such as starting workouts apps, sending IMs, using Lyft or Uber or to use payment functions. IOS 10_sentence_4

iOS 10 is also the last version of iOS to support devices with a 32-bit processor, and it is also the last version of iOS to support 32-bit apps. IOS 10_sentence_5

Reviews of iOS 10 were positive. IOS 10_sentence_6

Reviewers highlighted the significant updates to iMessage, Siri, Photos, 3D Touch, and the lock screen as welcome changes. IOS 10_sentence_7

Third-party integration in Siri was "great", although the voice assistant was criticized for not having become smarter than before. IOS 10_sentence_9

The lock screen was "far more customizable than before", and reviewers enjoyed that notification bubbles could be expanded to see more information without needing to unlock the phone. IOS 10_sentence_12

A month after release, iOS 10 was installed on 54% of iOS devices, a "slightly slower migration" than for the release of iOS 9, speculated as being caused by an early release issue that may have "put some [users] off downloading the update". IOS 10_sentence_13

User adoption of iOS 10 steadily increased in the following months, eventually totaling 89% of active devices in September 2017. IOS 10_sentence_14
