What is extra, in contrast to earlier years, there were not any popups or shiny pink badges prompting other folks to update till smartly after the first-week early-adopter surge wound down. That helped make sure that the servers may just take the preliminary load.
iOS 10 nonetheless shipped to each and every type of iPhone and iPad launched since past due 2012, on each and every service, in each and every area, all at the similar day.
