Beginning in early September, Apple users everywhere were surprised with the newest software update, iOS 10. The upgrade from iOS 9 comes as a whole new lifestyle for iPhone users everywhere.

One of the most enticing reasons to upgrade is just for a fresh change. “I was tired of seeing the same stuff [in iOS 9],” senior Juan Miranda said.

Freshman Taylor Leonard has mixed emotions about the update, but she does enjoy the changes in iMessage. “iMessage is more fun,” Leonard said. However, Leonard doesn’t like the emojis because they remind her of Android emojis and she hopes there will be three-way FaceTime calls in the future updates.

Most people like the new update for the iPhone. “I like the messages and the drawings,” junior Vanessa Mazariegos said. Although there are many new good features on iPhone, there are also some downsides of the new features. “It’s hard to get the touch ID [to work],” Mazariegos added.

The update comes with plenty of features, read receipts for select people, flashlight brightness options, optimized storage, and the option to finally remove those unnecessary apps like stocks.

Even with all these new features, there are still some who aren’t on board with the update.

“I don’t think it was worth [updating] … because it made my phone slower,” sophomore Genesis Jimenez said. “My phone [was] glitching and it would just turn off. Like, what the heck? I’m trying to go on Snapchat.”

The newest update has even added more fire to the Apple vs Android rivalry. “I think it’s a step in the right direction for Apple in order to keep up with the immense features and flexibility of  Android,” junior Kelvin Quacoe-Dameshi said. Quacoe-Dameshi is also a self-proclaimed tech-enthusiast. 

Quacoe-Dameshi may pose an interesting argument in terms of the capabilities between the new Samsung S7 and iPhone 7, but iPhone users will always love their blue bubbles and facetime calls, and rightfully so.
