I don't honestly find it all that different, but I know Mikey hates it for some reason.

I find the new iMessage tools pretty cool, like GIF's and drawing, and the new action centre type thing is good, but other than that, it seems like a very minor update.

This is funny though:

I don't find it a huge difference. I like the lift to wake feature, the notifications centre being the default pull down screen, and the ability to interact more fully with notifications without leaving the unlock screen. Some of the widgets are nice. I like a bunch of the cosmetic changes they've made as well. The photos app has seen some much needed improvement - I really like the manner in which you can confirm face-recognition matches quite quickly.

But, as I think I said around this subject before, I don't think large changes are a good thing for Apple necessarily. People buy into it because it's a - relatively - static OS that does the bread and butter well.

I don't have anything really bad to say about it that I could also say about 9.

   I didn't even know about lift to wake until you said it, now I use it ALL the time.

I agree though, it's mostly small but nice changes. I don't use most of them, but I like the new notification centre.

Apple redesigned the iPhone and iPad lockscreen, giving us the biggest revision since the first iPhone nine years ago. Slide to unlock is gone and replaced with simple instructions: "Press Home to open.

Settings -> General -> Software Update

Make sure you're connected to wifi and have a charged phone before you do it. Otherwise it will consume your tasty tasty data allowance :)
