5. It holds a secret
According to David McIntosh of Recode.net, the update hides a secret browser set to change the way people interact and consume information.
“The hidden iOS 10 browser will look much different from the web browsers we’re familiar with today — the content we consume and the interactive applications floating between us will be shaped by our need to privately and visually express our full range of our emotions,” McIntosh wrote.
