macOS Sierra wasn’t the only operating system Apple unveiled today at WWDC in San Francisco — naturally, the Cupertino tech giant showed its mobile devices some love too, taking the wraps off of iOS 10 ahead of its release later this year. Billed by Apple as the biggest iOS release ever, iOS 10 represents a major upgrade for the likes of the iPhone and iPad, building on the groundwork laid by iOS 9 while introducing new and overhauled apps alike.

Messages, the most frequently used iOS app, has gotten a major facelift and will now include animations like balloons and confetti for special occasions, as well as invisible ink that only appears once revealed by the recipient. You can even include hand-written notes while a new automatic suggestions feature makes it easy to replace words with emoji. Best of all, rich links mean you can now via content and media inline without ever leaving the app.

Like Messages, Maps has been completely redesigned and is now easier to use than ever. Simpler and more intuitive, the app can integrate the likes of OpenTable and Uber bookings and proactively delivers directions thanks to intelligent new tech. Like macOS, iOS 10 will get the overhauled Photos app and the redesigned Apple Music Experience. And if you’re a HomeKit user, you’re in luck as a brand new Home app means easier control of your various smart home gadgets.

You’ll be happy you know too that you’ll finally be able to uninstall all of those proprietary Apple apps that you never use that come pre-loaded on your device.

The iOS 10 is available now to iOS Developer Program members while the beta launches in July. The OS will be available as a free upgrade come fall and will be compatible with iPhone 5 and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad fourth generation, iPad mini 2 and later, and iPod touch sixth generation.
