    I honestly love the look of iOS 10.

    I'm interested to see if the new News/Music apps are signs of what is to come from Apple development.

    Post your impressions here!

    Im also a fan with what they are doing with the News & Music apps. I actually like the new typography. Having used iOS 10 for a while day now, Im loving the new widgets, although I'm still not 100% on their design. It also appears that some animations should be sped up, especially when opening folders, I like the new animation but its too slow.

    I don't mind the overall design. I wish they would make some of the font and UI elements smaller, though.

    I don't think it's beautiful at all. I like some aesthetic elements but the notifications are so awkward and not intuitive.

    They ruined notification centre and widgets. You can only see 1 line previews in notification centre alerts and widgets for example philips hue you could have almost unlimited scenes now you can only have 4

    I really like most of it. The font size and boldness looks a little old age pensioner, which isn't a bad thing but the option to choose your preferred font size would be welcome! Other than that and a few other bits of nitpicking I feel it is really fresh!

    These are the kind of things that will likely be addressed as the betas progress.

    The font size is definitely bothering me. It's like they're trying to cater to people who pull out their reading glasses to look at their phone, haha. :p (No offense to people here who do that!)

    I think it looks beautiful but a little inconsistent. Some things I have to get used to, but that'll be no issue at all. Like it so far. :)

    those big ass bubbles everywhere tho ... might as well not even bother calling them "banners" anymore.

    Notification Center or whats left of it seems cluttered and looks hideous. not so much "at a glance" anymore

    You know, I agree with most of the sentiment here. It's not particularly great design. I see it, I understand it, but it's not, in my opinion, great design.

    In fact, when I really stopped and though about it, the new Apple Music really reminds me of this:

    Admittedly this isn't the best picture, but it highlights some of what I am referring to.

    This was from Zune HD which came out in 2009. It's been almost 7 years, and Apple is now starting to borrow some of these ideas anyways.

    Do I think Apple will go to tiles ever? Heck no, but this is where it starts.

    After the Zune HD came out, and it was considered a popular interface because it was different interface. Microsoft then decided to go and turn out a Windows Phone OS based on it, and then eventually move it over to their desktop platform.

    Anyways, those are my 2 cents.

    The widgets page has changed.

    The apps haven't been updated. When they're updated it will be better

    Come on, you should know that.

    This whole new music app is just...I can't even...

    It's atrocious. It's a mix of zune and the old beats music app with all the beauty of iOS stripped out. The targets are so big it's like a jitterbug and the lack of dynamic coloring from albums is disappointing. Just look at that mini player at the bottom. What is even going on there? Why is there an atrocious grey shadow tint on it? Were people really that confused with the old style or didn't realize you could tap/slide it up that they felt they needed to overemphasize it as a separate UI element with a terrible shadow? I could go on and on but it's all personal opinion. That whole redesign just looks like a hot mess to me. Enough to were ill just switch to a different service/music app.

    What I dont like is when a company do changes just for changes. Notification centre didn't need to be changed, it worked fine like it was. It was part of the original design of the redesign on iOS 7. Now, not only the new notification center dont look great, its also look completely out of place with the rest of the whole OS. Same thing with the new control center.

    Apple music just become another blindly all in white app now. The iOS 9 version is way more dynamic with different colors and all.

    Really? I think the notifications are much better looking. I was never a fan of iOS 7-9's notifications. The new ones are like the Apple Watch. I think that's great. I like how they hover like Android's and Windows Phone's. That's nice too.

    I agree for the most part. I like the big fonts in News and the Notification Center, but in Music it definitely is uncomfortable.

    They look/function the same as they did in iOS 9?

    That's a little ridiculous. They both have squares but otherwise look NOTHING alike. With that logic the last major iTunes refresh (I think 11? Maybe 10?) Should have reminded you of it because of the squares of album art. This is a MAJOR stretch.

    Interesting, but it seems like they're wasting a lot of space, especially given that this is the 12.9" Pro :/

    I so far really love the update! There are a few small bugs but obviously those will be squashed at a later date. I love the idea and layout of the widgets and the music app looks pretty cool. Now give me dark mode and I'll be happy for life. Can't stand how white everything has to be.
