    I am still getting used to the my iphone, so didn't think the new update 10 would be
    a big deal. Due out sometime in September.

    Looking it over, lots of things my iphone 5 won't have a need for.

    Then I read an article that said part of update would let you delete some of the pre-installed apps that you
    don't use.

    Good news for me. I don't use quite a few apps like:
    'FaceTime', 'Stocks', 'Tips', 'Watch app', 'Find my friends', etc.
    A total of 23 apps can be deleted. Finally, something I can use...

    A new update, I finally just got around to doing the last update....I always hit "remind me later".

    Finally did it this week and at first I thought that someone I was calling had trouble with their phone because it didn't ring.

    Then my Ex called and he said nobody answered but I did, so he texted me and that's when I realized my phone wasn't working after the upgrade.

    He told me to reboot, I did and everything was fine, lol.

    Guess I'll do the 10 upgrade after I read what bugs there are...

    I don't use the stocks or watch app but do use facetime but only with grandsons.

    I also don't use podcasts, what are they?

    The rest of my screens on my iphone. My ipad has at least 6-7!

    Edit: I counted and it's 12 screens filled with apps or save to homescreen on my ipad. I need to delete some.

    Said to work for iPhone 5 and up and iPads also.
    Hope they are correct. Would love to free up some space.

    I was getting a lot of apps on my iPad, too, @Chrissy Page , and what i did was organize them into folders.
    For instance, music. I now have a folder that says music, and inside of that is Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Music, and iTunes.
    I did the same thing with almost everything else except the important things that need to be separate. So, all of my forums are in a folder that says Forums, all reference is in its own folder, and so on.
    It is easy to do, you just drag one icon onto another one, and they will merge, and a name comes out for the folder. If you don't like the name, then you just change it to what you want it to say.
    After I organized, I now only have 2 pages on my ipad again.

    I'll have to do that, it's tiring getting to the last page. :)

    I have the most important things on the first page, and then the things I use less on the second page, and more of those are grouped into folders.
    Here is what mine looks like after compartmentalizing everything.

    I leave things where they are. I figure that if God wanted them organized, he'd have done so.

    I thought he gave you free will. You are choosing to be unorganized. :)

    Started the download of iOS 10. So far, so good.
    Had to update iTunes to do it.
    It's pretty early, so throw a pod in the machine for coffee
    and step out with the dog.

    Well, that went easy enough.
    I read that it is best to do the update from iTunes instead of over the air.
    At least for me, did not eat up too much space.
    For general info, the update I did was on an iPhone 5, newer phones should be easier.
    I will play with the phone later. Just glad it went smooth.

    @Chrissy Page you are probably right to wait. From what I read, most of those problems came from
    updating with the phone over the air and not from iTunes.
    I like to live dangerously sometimes, and I was up and bored.:eek:
    So far, everything is working ok on the phone, some things take a bit to get use to.

    Yes, I read that too. I'm in no hurry, think I put off my last update a few months. Always clicking "remind me later".

    Just downloaded 10 on iPhone. It is nice to get rid of those apps that I never use.....couldn't do that before. The rest of 10 is nice as well.
    Will do the download to my wife's iPhone tonight.

    Yes, being able to get rid of the apps I'll never use was the main reason I did the update.
    Also, the music player is suppose to be better.

    Can't get the Home app to work. Really wanted to see how that worked. Suppose to be like a Home Security type thing.

    Anyone know about this app that came with 10?

    Got rid of the Home app. Looks like it costs to have it in iTunes.

    @Chrissy Page..........I wouldn't wait to long to upgrade, no matter what you read about the upgrade. Not upgrading could affect the performance of your iPhone. Any new upgrades for phone or computer, I always get. But, then again, I'm sort of a computer/iPhone "techy" and know what I'm doing/what to look for.

    I updated the iPhone and iPads today, as well as updating iTunes , and then I synced everything. So far, everything seems to be working fine. It did take a long time to update everything; but that is pretty usual when they do one of these major iOS updates, at least that has been my experience.
    The Home app only works with something like a home security system, or probably a garage door opener, and things like that. It doesn't do any of that itself; it is just the place where you control it, anyway that was my understanding of it after watching the Apple Event presentation.

    I just got around to updating my iPad, getting used to a few changes but it's all good.

    What I've noticed is my battery seems to be holding its charge longer...maybe just a fluke and I'm not going on places that drain it too much today...has anyone else noticed that.

    I haven't updated my phone yet because I back up to my daughters Mac with everything and updating my iPad was just an accident because I hit the wrong thing last night and couldn't stop it...thankfully I didn't lose anything and all went well but I would rather have done it at my daughter's...oh well.

    This did take longer I thought @Yvonne Smith.
