Among the variety of innovations in iOS 10 it is worth noting a new feature called “storage Optimization”. As conceived by Apple, it allows to avoid situations with lack of space on the iPhone and iPad for those moments when the user must take a photo, shoot a movie or install an application.
Setting the “Optimize storage” is in the Music section of the main settings of the operating system. By default it is off. “If the place on the iPhone ends, the music you have not played will automatically be deleted from this iPhone”, – stated in the description of the function.
Available in a choice of five options: 8 GB – about 1600 songs, 16 GB is about 3200 songs, 32 GB is about 6400 songs and the 64 GB is about 12 800 songs or “Not selected”. If you exceed the specified amount of iOS 10 will need to remove the old tracks from the device.

The final release of iOS 10 is scheduled for September. To install the update will be on iPhone 5 or later, Apple tablets, starting with iPad 4 and iPad mini 2, and iPod touch sixth generation.
