recognition to sort photos of a certain person.
In iOS 10, Photos group together people, locations and other information to bring collections of photos without any user interventions. These smart collection called as ‘Memories’. The iPhone will automatically create video slideshows of memories for beautiful reflections and reviews of your favourite moments.
With the new iOS 10, you can send handful of different animated text such as lasers and fireworks. iMessage chats will become more expressive, with text bubbles that animate and move, and downloadable stickers that can be sent and stuck to images within the chat.

With rich links, you will be able to view articles and videos right inside the messages, without
the need to launch a browser or separate app. Pretty cool, huh?
Sleep - Friendly Alarm
For many people, Apple's alarm clock is the last thing they see before going to sleep and the first thing when they wake up. So Apple has totally redesigned it in iOS 10. It can even give you a headsup when it's time to go to bed. It's sporting a new dark mode, too.
Smarter Lock Screen
Lock screen experience has been improved in iOS 10. Lock screen interface has totally revamped with significantly more detailed notifications that will let you take actions without unlocking your phone.
