    It's a delicate balance considering the wide range of people using iMessage. I honestly won't know which features I'll use and which ones I won't until I have iOS 10 running on my phone. If they aren't in my way they won't bother me anyway.
    The thing is that the people receiving the new messages need to be on iOS 10 in order to receive the messages, or they just won't deliver.

    Rest in peace, spelling, grammar and punctuation. People will do nothing but write out emojis as their language and we're all going to the hot place.
    I blame autocorrect and the increase of usage of tech in HS to the decrease in my spelling abilities. I used to be able to spell out words just by hearing them, now it's the autocorrect on my MBA.

    I still don't know how to do that. Words never turn orange at all for me.

    Edit: as of right now its only an iMessage thing AFAIK

    Sounds like people are really blowing this iMessage thing out of proportion. I'd imagine it wont be in your face. If you want to use those features cool. If not, don't. Only time I'd imagine you'd be presented with it in that case is if someone is sending you content that calls on those features?

    That's exactly what I'm throwing a hissy-fit over. I barely tolerate the stuff people send me now so once they catch wind of they can do even more, it'll be more in my face.

    I'm looking forward to iOS 10. I guess it really doesn't matter to me if it's a small or large update, just keepem' coming. I do like how Apple has decided to open up more to Devs.

    For me, it was pretty underwhelming. I'm not interested in the changes to iMessage and I hope the new features are not shoved down our throats. The continued lack of a selective sync option for iCloud drive was a big disappointment as well.

    The changes to photos seem promising, but any optimism was quickly wiped out when told the new features (Faces and smart albums) are device only.

    The Music changes seem good... and big kudos to Bozoma St John for a great presentation to a very stiff WWDC crowd.

    I know the technology between Google and Apple is "Monkey See, Monkey Do"...... but Google's I/O in May was a hell of a lot more intriguing than this WWDC.
    I guess an auditorium full of developer geeks just doesn't rock, sway and roll. Their heart was there though.

    I really hope there will be a way to disable all these nonsense features in iMessage... I'm probably too old for this stuff and get that today's kids for some reasons unbeknownst to me NEED that stuff (replace "kids" with "the entire Chinese populace" at your own will) but I really don't won't to get bothered by secret messages or dancing bananas amongst fireworks and a dull yet annoying jingle playing in the background.

    I just spent twelve weeks travelling around Asia and among those four weeks in China, and in my personal opinion yes, these changes were introduced primarily to make the iPhone more attractive to Chinese youth and young adults (which, granted, is the world's entire Chinese population). Just take a look at WeChat, the #1 messaging app in China, and you'll understand

    WeChat does a lot more than that (pay your restaurant bill, order a black cab, send money to your friends, access wifi hotspots, etc.) but it's also where the nonsense originated.

    After using iOS 10 for the past couple days I have came to some conclusions. It feels like they are trying too hard to add functionally to areas of the OS that have basic functions. Every time I picked up my iPhone to use it, I would slide to unlock and boom, widgets. A lock screen is meant for locking a device and showing notifications. Same with iMessage, there is to many complications to complete a simple task of "TYPING A TEXT". Too many swipes just to add balloons to a message. Oh yeah "one more thing", the iMessage upgrades will only work if both devices sending and receiving are running iOS 10 . They really need to stay focused on the ideas and products that made them who they are and stop trying to impress China, because one day they will become who they are chasing and nobody likes a cheap knock off.

    With all these "new" features , I'm also hoping the "bugs" will be minimal. I hate BUGS.

    I think is more closer to Android than it ever was before. Not sure if apple said we can delete stock apps because that's not really true because we can hide them and not delete the app. No more love for the iPad ? I think before they don't change it people won't buy one because what's the point having all the power and still same grid on a big screen

    Definitely a BETA ...lots of things don't work on iPad4

    BUT

    really like using HOME to open instead of swipe ...

    some of the new iMessage features are fun but will not pass to ios 9 devices (which is understandable & expected).

    BUT

    Notifications will take me some time to get used to

    Based on the info below, it doesn't sound like I'm getting my storage space back. So, what's the point of 'deleting', or should I say, hidding the app?

    "To re-download a built-in app, you go to the App Store and search for it like any other app. The difference is though, if you tap the get button to re-download it, it doesn't actually have to download any data. It just switches the app back on."
    For me, the point is that I don't have to see it in a folder and/or my start screen. To me, that is great. The fact that it appears like I can finally only have the apps I use and like on my phone is awesome. No other phone can do that right now. (I mean without flashing and/or rooting the phone)

    I have since ceased my use of folders so 'deleting' apps will help with another compulsion and that is to have as few pages as possible

    I'm FREAKING OUT about losing widgets from the Today pulldown. This is a huge step backwards when it comes to widget usefulness (and more like Android) in my book. I so often use the current feature while typing an email, or in a phone call, or messaging, to simply pull down and look at my calendar, check a date, and then respond without having to leave the app I'm in and either multitask to the calendar or go home and find the widget. This is a terrible loss in true glanceable information, which is the whole point of widgets and was such an advantage over Android!! So now, I have to go somewhere to see my calendar? What's the point of the widget then, I might as well just go to the calendar app! Everything looks great, and I understand they want to make the pull down notification area cleaner, but this is a sad loss. I can't imagine I'm the only person who found the ability to access all widgets any time from any place on the phone, be it while in an app or phone call or anything, a great thing!

    So, notification shade dedicated to NOTHING but notifications. And still nothing in the statusbar to alert the user they actually have notifications to read....

    How can such a blatantly obvious oversight STILL be untouched?
