    You can review the trust certificates that are preinstalled in iOS 10.

    Settings/General/About/Certificate Trust Settings.
    Click on "Learn more about trusted certificates"

    Honestly if you're getting a certificate "out of date" error it's less likely a problem with you device and most likely the site's certificate being expired. This happens on web sites as well as things like email servers.

    If it happens you should view the certificate in a desktop browser to verify the error and/or notify the site's admin.

    What I see is: "Certificate version: 2016102100" and the link "Learn more about trusted certificates". They talked about root certificates but I would to say the server certificates that I trusted it.

    What version of iOS are you running?
    The certificate would likely update when you update your iOS.
    Or, the app that you are using simply needs to be updated. You would need to contact the developer for third-party apps.

    Under most circumstances, you as the end user need to do nothing. The root certificate store is maintained by the operating system provider (Apple, in this case) and there's a revocation system that handles certificates that need to specifically not be trusted.

    If you are getting a certificate error, contact the provider (email, web, etc.) and let them know the error so they can fix it on their end.

    As an end user there's very little cause for overriding a certificate the operating system is rejecting or warning about.

    If you explicitly trusted a certificate, it would show up where @DeltaMac directed you or in Settings > General > Profiles (which is near the bottom of the general screen); you can remove trust from these locations by toggling the switch or removing the profile.

    On a side note: The list of trusted root certificates provided by the oprerating system vendor it pretty extensive and to my knowledge there's no way to list it all in iOS. On macOS you can see it in the Keychain app.

    Correct; it is not possible to see the trusted certificate store provided by Apple. Maybe they have a document somewhere that lists what's trusted? You could contact support and inquire.

    I don´t really want to know which certificates are provided by Apple. I wanto to know in which server certificates I trusted in previously.

    If that doesn't work then you may be out of luck.
