    I've seen several complaints about the music controls on the Control Center being a slide over. They want to pull it up and it be right there.
    If while on the music as here


    You pull it down where it is


    Then the next time you pull up the Control Center, it is already on the music controls.


    This works until you reboot or reset.

    Tip: Install the iPhone User Guide for iOS 10 to your phone. Great for those either new to iPhone or not yet familiar with iOS 10.


    Note: I couldn't find it in the store on my phone for some reason. I had to install it via iTunes.

    Hmmm. I was able to find it fine in the iBooks app on the iPhone. It was the first thing that popped up when I searched for "iPhone user guide".

    I had the previous version (9) in iBooks, and for some reason 10 wouldn't show up for me in the app store. No idea why. Perhaps I should of deleted 9 first. /shrug

    3D touch in the control center. The 3 levels of flashlight brightness has been shockingly useful.
    Finally Apple is making better use of the force touch!

    For people having trouble adjusting brightness in Control Center (e.g., accidentally swiping over to music controls instead of adjusting brightness), put your finger on the brightness toggle and wait for the screen brightness to change a bit before moving the slider. Then you'll know you're in the editing mode.

    This has been a lifesaver for me when I need to sneak into my bedroom at night but my 6 month old is asleep so I can turn on any lights. Before I got my 7+ I'd have to go in with full flashlight on the 5s, now I can use "low light" and not disturb him.

    Yes! Also, 3D Touch on the calculator to copy last result is very handy

    Thanks for pointing this out- didn't realize there was such a thing! I was able to find it by opening iBooks and searching for iPhone User Guide for iOS 10.1

    They update to the current OS automatically. Old link, but should update.

    You can get nested folders (folder in folder) in Notes app. Drag a folder in mac os or iclou.com and place it above another folder. It will appear on iPhone as well.

    I could not figure out how to get this to work, I kept trying to 3D Touch on the app in the updates section rather than on the actual app icon on home screen. LOL it was driving me crazy then I saw how to do it on an article about 3D Touch secrets.

    And double-tap to go back to the standard density.

    Also something I do pretty much every day: 3D Touch on a folder to quickly rename it (this might actually be the fastest way to activate "jiggle-mode") and see how many notifications each app has received…
