Hi all,
I'm still on iOS 9.2 and was considering the change to iOS 10. The current version I'd update to is 10.2.1.
I was wondering if the update was worth it, from both a security point of view, and a software change point.
I'm not sold on the big notification bubbles or the inability to group notifications by app from what I've seen, but they could be minor things if the move is really worth it due to certain reasons, and most of the new apps around are based on iOS 10. What do you guys think?

It's taken some getting used to fit me since I've been on android throughout iOS 10. I'd say it's worth it. I'm looking forward to 10.3 as there is file operating systems changes to its file structure which reportedly brings performance increases and benefits!

Any device capable of running iOS 10 should not be left in iOS 9. Even though iOS 9 was marketed as a "performance" and "stability" release, iOS 10 seemed to do that better.

Performance is similar, battery life is a bit worse.

If you like the idea of Widgets then it's worth updating.

So far it seems to be on the look and preference side...
On the security/bug side, does the 9.2.1 version have some bugs/problems/securities issues that have been fixes with iOS10?

Pretty mich every update, even minor bug fix ones, have some security fixes, so there are certainly quite a few that have been addressed since iOS 9 days.
