If you only read one piece of iOS advice this month, make sure it’s this one!

The single biggest misconception about iOS is that it’s good digital hygiene to force quit apps that you aren’t using.

Take a quick journey through the evolution of iPhone with this fun video!

The iPhone 7 is reportedly 120 times faster than the original 2G.

iOS 10 is available for download! Remember to backup your device to iCloud or iTunes before installing and to update all apps to ensure they're compatible. You might consider updating your apps every few hours for the next few days. Finally, make sure your device has a good battery charge or is plugged in before beginning the update.

WSJ did a great job of reviewing some of the things that Apple changed behind the scenes this week and a few things you might have missed on Wednesday.

Here is a rundown of what Apple didn’t say aloud Wednesday as it unveiled the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, new wireless AirPod headphones and the second-generation Apple Watch.

Apple blasted product news Wednesday for two hours, but some got buried.

The new camera technology in iPhone 7 Plus is the feature we’re most excited about!

iOS Knowledge added 8 new photos.

iPhone 7 Update: optical stabilization on all models, 6 element lens, larger aperture, new 12 megapixel sensor is faster and more power efficient, True Tone fla...sh compensates for flickering artificial light and is 50% brighter. Image signal processor 2x throughout of previous iPhones. ISP does 100M operations in 25ms each time you take a photo. Live Photos are better with stabilization, editing/cropping/filtering, and 3rd party apps can use Live Photos and capture raw photos and wide color. 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera on the front with some of the high tech features previously on the back camera. Dual 12mp cameras on 7 Plus—one is wide-angle and one telephoto. 1x button in Camera app switches to 2x telephoto or drag to zoom deeper but since it starts with telephoto lens, it can go to 10x with digital zoom with much better quality than before. Shallow depth of field (sharp focus on subject and great blur of background) is in development. It uses the ISP to depth-map the image to focus on foreground and digitally blur the background. This uses the "Portrait" mode in the camera app. Effect is applied in the preview (even DSLR cameras can't do that). See the photo of the man with clouds reflected in his glasses for an example. This feature will be included in a later update to iOS 10 by end of year.

iPhone 7 Update (Recap): Battery life has longest battery life ever in an iPhone. Compared to 6s, expect about 2 more hours of use per day. From 6s Plus to 7 Plus, expect at least one more hour of use per charge. Also 7 Plus has a larger 5.5" display. (Was it an accident that the 7 was announced on September 7?) New cases, battery cases, charging docks available with iPhone 7. Doubled all storage configurations (now 32GB, 128GB, 256GB, but no 32GB for Jet Black). Prices are same as equivalent iPhone 6s model. SE remains entry level, 6s and 6s Plus take place of 6 and 6 Plus but now have their storage doubled to 64GB and 128GB. Upgrade program now expands to UK and China but still not Cana. Preorder on Sep 9 and ships on Sep 16 in most countries, one week later in many more. AirPods ship late October at $159. iOS 10 launches Sep 13.

ApplePay Update: Over 90% of wireless payments use ApplePay right now. Japan has FeliCa in Japanese iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2. Transit in Maps and ApplePay roll out in Japan next month.

AirPods: Wireless audio takes advantage of current technology. These use Apple-designed W1 chip for reliable connection. Infrared sensors detect when they are in your ear. Motion accelerometers allow access to Siri with taps. Beamforming mics reduce noise. Wireless charging case provides 24 hours of battery power. Switch between Apple devices for input instantly. Put AirPods near iPhone and tap connect. iCloud propagates the setup across all Apple devices. You can also use just one for Siri or phone calls. 5 hours battery life for listening per AirPod and case has a battery to recharge. Same size as EarPods, just without cords. New line of Beats headphones launch today Solo3 Wireless with W1 chip, Powerbeats3 Wireless, and BeatsX use W1 chip as well.

iPhone 7 Update: Stereo speakers, one at bottom and one at top and 2x volume with increased dynamic range. EarPods are most popular headphones in the world. New model connects via Lightning port for digital audio and included with every iPhone 7. Lightning to mini jack adapter will be included in the box with every iPhone 7 as well! Analog audio jack is 100 year old tech that wastes space inside the phone that can be used for more exciting components.
