Hidden Features in iOS 10

Read Receipts for Each Contact

Read Receipts are useful for allowing users to let others who are using iMessage to see when a message has been read. Now in iOS 10, Read Receipts are now able to be turned on and off for each user.

Light Levels for Flashlight 

The flashlight tool in Control Center allows for easy convenience for a flashlight. Now in iOS 10, any iPhone with Force Touch can select three different light levels: Low Light, Medium Light, and Bright Light.

Bedtime 

Bedtime brings sleep tracking to the iPhone right into the operating system itself. Built into the Clock app and under the Bedtime menu, this allows users to set their bedtime and wake time, set an alarm tone, and view their Sleep Analysis.
