The new operating system received an update hours after its release
The latest version of iOS became available for download last night. Many were excited to see it in action as Apple promised a big shake-up to the user experience.
As with many new software releases, however, iOS10 got off to a bit of a rocky start. A number of early-updaters took to social media to complain about difficulties with the installation process.

In a statement published yesterday evening, an Apple spokesperson said "We experienced a brief issue with the software update process, affecting a small number of users during the first hour of availability. The problem was quickly resolved and we apologize to those customers." The company says users should now be able to safely proceed with installing iOS 10.
iOS 10.0.1 is available to download now. Anyone who updated early yesterday evening should take the time to ensure they have the very latest software on their phone.
While some of the features are emoji related, there's some practical additions to the iOS. One of the most obvious changes within iOS 10 is on the home-screen. This is one of the biggest changes since the first iPhone some nine years ago. The old "slide to unlock" has been replaced with the instructions: "Press Home to Open".
The Night-Shift feature has been given great prominence on iOS 10. 'NightShift' takes note of the local time and your global location and use this to activate a warmer colour spectrum on your phone's screen, which is more conducive to the creation of melatonin. Come the morning, your phone will automatically return to the usual blue-and-green light fields.
There's a host of widgets available for the left of the home-screen. Users can customise what they have access to with one hand. This small change really enhances the user experience.
We're still getting to grips with iOS 10 and will continue to share that experience as time goes by!
