iOS 10 Features
iOS 10 official launch is scheduled for the fall of 2016.

iOS 10 is now exclusively available for Apple developers. The iOS beta version will allow devs to have an early look into the capabilities of the upcoming full-fledged version of the Apple mobile platform. The next iteration of iOS will be developed for iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Though all of them will feature iOS, there will be slight differences in the device-specific versions of iOS 10. Anyhow, the iOS 10 features will be same in all these iterations.

The iOS 10 developer preview announcement was made by Apple during its WWDC 2016 event that kicked off on June 13. A public beta of iOS 10 will be released by Apple sometime next month, while official launch of the mobile platform is planned for the fall of 2016.
