iOS 10 – iPhone

Since updating my iPad to iOS 10 worked out ok, I decided to update my iPhone tonight. That too worked out fine. I’m not seeing much in iOS 10 that’s really interesting or useful so far. The changes to the lock screen and notification center are interesting, but I don’t know yet if there’s anything useful there, or if it’s just visually different. I need to read up on that and play around a bit.

I’m not enamored of the changes to the Mail app in iOS 10. The iPhone and iPad apps are a bit different; the iPhone app still has previous/next buttons, though they look different and work a bit different than they used to. And I’m not sure if I like the way they now handle message threading. I’m sure I can live with the new Mail app, but I might as well look at some alternatives.

A while back, I gave Outlook a try, but didn’t stick with it. Maybe it’s time to try it again. They recently made some changes to it, adding some fancy calendaring stuff. I’m not sure if I need any of that, but it might be fun to play with.
