Best new function

Hello. In my opinion one of the best new functions of iOS 10 the operating system for the Apple iPad and iPhone is the Magnifier. This could be very useful if you forget a hand held portable magnifier and has lots of features including brightness, contrast and colour filters as well as the magnification. Excellent for those with some partial sight. What do you think - what functions do you like?

To those, new to this thread, who may think that Daniel and Nick have succumbed to a form of madness or supermarket-based Tourrets syndrome; I must apologise for deleting a reply by Natalie bearing the single word "test" as I thought it was unneeded in the conversation. The later replies, however are an amusing addition to the conversation. As I can find no way to reinstate the comment I am leaving this short paragraph to explain the reason for supermarkets being randomly quoted in this conversation. May this message serve as a reminder against hasty moderation (and probably a means of confusing the matter further).

and might I add:

Waitrose.

Hi both, thanks for posting. We have now created a new discussion board specifically for Smartphones and tablets. We may move this discussion into that so that we don't have too many different boards. What do you think?

Hi both, we are going to tidy this page and move this discussion into the other board. If you would kindly repost in the smartphones and tablets board, that would be great, thanks! This board will be deleted later today

Hi Sas75,

The smartphone and tablet board is on the boards homepage along with Employment Matters etc. Speaking of which, I urge you to go into the employment matters section and respond to the Government consultation if you are interested in getting or keeping a job.

One useful but missing feature on these boards is the date of last comment. As I can't remember how many replies there were when I last looked, I have to wade through them all.

The responses in the thread aren't in time/date order so it could get confusing as to who is answering what! I realise we are trying to make an unusually tangled thread so maybe it won't normally matter.

Hi.
I haven't managed to play with Ios10 yet, but the magnifier looks like a big plus. The main thing I dislike about Apple products in general is not being able to easily transfer files from non- Apple gadgets like you can with Android. That said, they do 'just work' so are easier to use.

Yes, Neil, the magnifier is great as it canbe accessed so easily rather than having to find and start an app.

And another thing Nat, for those who sign up to be notified of comments, would it be asking a lot for the new comment to be included in the notification? Once again, it would save wading through a long and tangled thread.
