iOS 10 has got tons of all new features to boost its claim of being the most feature-rich mobile OS on the planet. Ever since the latest version of iOS was announced at WWDC 2016, I have been testing it out. And believe me; it has been quite successful in making a good impression.

Among several changes what I really appreciate is the option to access camera by simply swiping the screen from right to left. You no longer have to swipe up on the camera icon from the Lockscreen to access the same. It’s just a little tweak, isn’t it?
