iOS 10 comes into the market just a few days before the new iPhones are available for customers to purchase.

With the release of iOS 10, Apple has also released WatchOS 3 to the original Apple Watch. According to Apple, this OS version improves app launch times on the smartwatch. With this version, you will be able to easily switch watch faces. You will also be getting an Activity Sharing feature built-in and use Apple pay with third party apps.
