iOS 10 Hidden Features: Split-View Safari, Mail Filters, Universal Clipboard and More

iOS 10 has been described by Apple as its biggest iOS update ever, with new features like a total overhaul of the Lock screen, a revamped Messages app that includes its own dedicated App Store, among other improvements, a Siri SDK for developers, a more capable Photos app, a redesigned Apple Music app, and hundreds of other changes, big and small.

In the video below, we've rounded up some of the smaller but still significant changes that have gone largely under the radar, like an easy access "Unsubscribe" button for newsletters in the Mail app, side-by-side Safari multitasking on iPads, Notes collaboration, cross device copy and paste, voicemail transcription, and more.


Over the beta testing period, Apple will undoubtedly introduce refinements to many of the previously announced features, along with tweaks to the interface and new minor features to streamline iOS 10 ahead of its release in the fall. We'll have ongoing coverage of iOS 10 and the other operating system updates unveiled at WWDC -- watchOS 3, macOS Sierra, and tvOS 10.

Don't miss out on our previous videos, which have covered iOS 10 and macOS Sierra features:

- WWDC 2016 Overview in Seven Minutes

- iOS 10's Overhauled Lockscreen

- The New iOS 10 Photos App

- The New iOS 10 Messages App

- Siri on Mac

I realize there are a good number of MacRumors readers who watched the keynote where some of these features were mentioned, but not everyone saw it. If you didn't watch the keynote, these features aren't readily apparent. They're not highlighted on Apple's site and they're not all easy to find in the OS itself.

Many of those were featured in the keynote. How can they be "hidden" features if they were prominently advertised?

Most of these were in the Keynote, how are they hidden?

Garbage article and should be deleted! Split view was specifically on the keynote! Was the author not watching the keynote?

Wow.
First three in.
First three off point.

I saw the keynote, but I'm pushing 50 and am lucky to remember where I leave my keys, so this succinct reminder was much appreciated. Thanks MacRumors.
