Apple Releases iOS 10.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Apple has just released version of iOS 10.1, its next-generation mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The most notable feature of iOS 10.1 is the addition of portrait mode to iPhone 7 Plus’s camera app. With this feature users will be able to take stunning photos with blurred backgrounds, an effect that lets you take DSLR depth effect like photos using an iPhone. The Portrait mode is only available on iPhone 7 Plus.

According to Apple, iOS 10.1 fixes bugs and improves stability. The full list of changes spotlighted by the company are:

Camera and Photos

  • Introduces Portrait Camera for iPhone 7 Plus that creates a depth effect that keeps your subject sharp while creating a beautifully blurred background (beta)
  • People names in the Photos app are saved in iCloud backups
  • Fixes an issue where opening the Camera app would show a blurred or flashing screen for some users
  • Fixes an issue that caused Photos to quit for some users when turning on iCloud Photo Library
  • Improved the display of wide color gamut photos in the grid views of the Photos app


  • Transit support for every major train, subway, ferry, and national bus line, as well as local bus systems for Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya
  • Sign-based transit navigation including layouts of all underground structures and walkways that connect large transit stations
  • Transit fare comparison when viewing alternative transit routes


  • New option to replay bubble and full screen effects
  • Messages effects can play with Reduce Motion enabled
  • Fixes an issue that could lead to contact names appearing incorrectly in Messages
  • Addresses an issue where Messages could open to a white screen
  • Addresses an issue that could prevent the report junk option from displaying with unknown senders
  • Fixes an issue where videos captured and sent in the Messages app could be missing audio
