By now, you've probably had some time to play around with iOS 10 and get acquainted with all the new features. We've already told you about most of them, but there are all kinds of tweaks and new settings hidden deep within the software. Here are some of the best features hidden inside iOS 10.
1) Search for tabs in SafariGood news! The iOS 10 version of Safari lets you open up an unlimited number of tabs while you're browsing. That does bring its own problems though, including not being able to keep track of your browsing, and that's where tab search comes in.Rotate your device into landscape mode (it won't work in portrait) and then tap the tabs button (top right). A new search box appears in the top left corner.Enter your search terms and Safari filters out the tabs as you go, though bear in mind you're only searching through the titles of the tabs and n…

Remix OS is now available as a simple-to-use Android emulator for Windows:Remix OS is basically a desktop version of Android, with floating windows and a start menu-style app drawer. So, it makes sense that creators Jide would make it as easy to use on a desktop. Enter Remix OS Player — a free, downloadable emulator of the OS for Windows. It's always been fairly easy to get Remix OS on a Windows device by booting from a USB stick, for example, but with the Player you simply download it as .EXE.Remix OS Player is based on the virtual machine in Android Studio and runs inside a dedicated window. It's based on Android Marshmallow (6.0) and comes with access to the Google Play Store. Jide recommends using it primarily as a gaming emulator, letting you play Android titles like Clash of Clans straight from your Windows desktop. There are some very accessible spec requirements (Windows 7, Core i3 processor, 8GB of storage, etc), but Remix OS Player is basically a very simple package …

After revealing the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple is finally releasing iOS 10 for everyone with a compatible device today. Of course you're going to want to set aside some time for playing around with the new software, but if you want to get to the newest features right away, then these are (almost) all the extra tricks that iOS has learned in the last year. Here are 23 things you can do with iOS 10 that you couldn't do before.
1) Remove some of the stock apps Thanks, Apple. iOS 10 finally lets you uninstall some of the stock apps, like... Stocks. The process is the same, just tap and hold on an app icon to see the small cross button, but when you do this in iOS 10 you'll see more of them can be removed including Maps, Podcasts, and Contacts. If you start missing them, you can reinstall all apps from iTunes. There are still some that won't budge, however, including Messages, Health, Safari, and the Clock app.
2) Pick up your iPhone to see notifications If you want to check…

iOS 10 Release Date Is September 13th:
Apple detailed iOS 10 – which it calls the biggest iOS update it has ever created – earlier this year at the Worldwide Developer Conference 2016. Since then, the software has been released in beta to registered developers who now have a pretty good idea of what this new major iOS upgrade brings to the table. At its iPhone 7 even today Apple finally confirmed the iOS 10 release date.
Siri gets one of the biggest improvements in iOS 10. The personal digital assistant is now more powerful than ever before which means it can be more useful for people who own iOS devices. Siri can now handle things like image search and voicemail transcription, it’s also being opened up third-party developers so that Siri can work with other apps as well.There are dozens of minor tweaks in iOS 10 which involve widgets, notifications, user interface, and apps. It certainly feels more refined than any previous iOS iteration and that’s precisely what Apple was shooting fo…
