    Beginning with iOS 9 I have noticed a few issues that really bug me

    1 - Unable to know at a glance which apps are in notification center
    The apps listed in Notifications in settngs are supposed to tell me the Notifications style I choose, EX: badges, sounds alerts, etc.However, when you enter an app from the Notifications in settings, and turn on SHOW IN NOTIFICATION CENTER, this option does not appear next to your Notification Style (SOUNDS, BANNERS) when you return to the Notifications screen in settings.
    How does one tell which apps are IN notification center? You would have to scroll through each app, and select them to see if "Show in Notification Center" is on.
    This was so simple with iOS8 since there was a heading labeled INCLUDE and DO NOT INCLUDE.
    This way I always knew what was included in notification center and what was not included.
    This is missing in iOS9 and now iOS10. The only way to tell as far as I can see is by going into each app and checking to see if "SHOW IN NOTIFICATION CENTER" has been turned on. Not very user friendly at all.

    2 - Audio Books
    Since updating to iOS10 and 10.02, iBooks seems to have lost the ability to play from your last position without opening the app. I use a BT receiver in my car connected to my audio jack. I used to be able to start my car, the BT receiver would automatically connect, I would see the Audiobook pop up on my lock screen, and the audio book would begin playing from the last position.
    Now, when I start my car in the morning, my BT receiver still automatically connects, but iBooks is stalled. I do not see the book pop up on the lock screen, and If I open control center, instead of iBooks showing me the audio book I last played, it just says iBooks. I have to physically open iBooks in order to begin playing from where I left off.

    3 - Notifications on lock Screen
    in iOS9 When I received an email or message on the lock screen, I had the ability to swipe left and select delete.
    in iOS10, swiping left only has options for view and clear. Selecting clear, obviously clears the notification from the lock screen. Delete is missing. I now need to select view, then I will see the delete option. Its one more step now for deletion. In speaking with a few app developers, I am being told that this is the way iOS10 handles notifications now. Question I have since I have a 6 plus, does a 3D press show the delete option or only just view and clear?

    Anyone else having issues similar to mine?

    3) apps have to get updated for more options. As of now, for example FB Messenger has a "reply" button when slide left. Even on iPhone 5. Apps that aren't updated show only View and Clear as you said.

    For item 3, 3D Touch is basically the same as using the "View" option that reveals the rich notification options.

    The list is long and wide for irritating and broken features in iOS 10. At this point it's like complaining about getting wet on a rainy day. Everyone knows it's a mess.

    There are always bugs that exist, even in the last released version of iOS 9 or 8 or 7, and especially so in when it comes to the earlier x.0 versions of a new release. Nothing exactly new or surprising or shocking or even unexpected about it.

    That said, what does any of that have to do with the particular items that the OP brought up?

    Irritating for who? List is "long and wide"? iOS 10 is great out of the gate not doom and gloom. Sun is shining and getting tan.

    Thanks for clearing up number 3 guys. Hopefully my favorite apps will get updated soon.

    Well out of all the features of iOS10 that i truly enjoy, a few irritations i may have does not mean i was reportimg doom and gloom. I am very happy with iOS10.

    How about number 1? Am i missing a way to see whats in notification center at a glance as i could in iOS 7?

    Apple changed that back in iOS 9 or even 8. Not sure what the reasoning might be. Perhaps most people that have notifications enabled have them appear on the Notification Center or otherwise have them off. Not that it makes things easier somehow, but could be what played into that kind of a decision, assuming it was even a decision and not just some oversight. Look at what they did with grouping and sorting options for notifications in Notification Center in iOS 10--basically just got rid of them (again, hard to say if it was some specific decision or some oversight).

    Yea that was changed in ios8. If i have 20 apps in notification center, not all 20 apps will be in notification at the same time, So at a glance pulling down the notification screen in my opinion is not a reliable way to tell whats in NC. So to your point i agree, not sure what prompted the change. To me it seems like an over sight.
