Apple announced the tenth version of its mobile operating system and they're bringing an unending list of updates that will truly make your iPhone (or iPad) the center of your universe. What's bound to be one of the biggest and most used updates is a total overhaul of the Messages app, which now features animated effects and an integrated app store that lets you do things like make a group order at your favorite restaurant or pay friends with Square Cash. 

You've also got a number of redesigned apps such as a big interface update to Apple Music, a more powerful Siri that can now interact with your apps, and a more robust Photos App. They've also made it easier to control all your home automation services with a new Home App that gives you quick access to things like lights, garages, door locks, and much more. iOS 10 is available today for developers and will go into preview for beta testing next month. The full release will be available as a free upgrade in the fall.
