4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 10 & 5 Reasons You Should
Apple’s iOS 10 update is a large update that brings big changes to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. And while many of you will want to install the iOS 10 update today, others might want to take a rain check and wait.
In June, Apple confirmed the successor to its iOS 9 update. The iOS 9.3.5 update’s reign is over and iOS 10 is now available after a lengthy stint in Apple’s beta program.
As expected, the iOS 10 update delivers some impressive changes to Messages, Apple Music, Apple Maps, and more. It’s an enticing update and one that many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners have their eyes on as we push into the fall.
iOS 10 is a large update, particularly for those of you that aren’t coming from Apple’s iOS 9.3.5 update. If you’re on something older, you’ll get the changes from iOS 9.3.4 and below baked into your version of iOS 10.
There are plenty of reasons to consider installing the iOS 10 on your device today but there are also some reasons why you might be better off waiting a few days or maybe even a few weeks before installing the newest iOS operating system.
This guide will walk you through all of these reasons and help you make a decision about the iOS 10 update today.
Install If You Value Your Security1 / 9
If you value your security, you’ll seriously want to consider download
ing the iOS 10 update.
The iOS 10 update brings several security patches with it. These patches enhance the security on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch making them ideal for those of you who store sensitive files/data on your device. So, just about everyone.
One other note. If you failed to install iOS 9.3.5, iOS 10 will also bring three crucial security patches. These patch up serious security problems that could potentially expose your calls, contacts, texts, and emails.
It’s also worth noting that “iOS 10 uses on-device intelligence to identify the people, objects, and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions.”
Apple also says that when you do decide to share sensitive data with Maps or Siri, it’s “always encrypted and never used to build user profiles.”
If security is important to you, iOS 10 is worth a look.
