List Rules Vote up the worst, dumbest, most annoying things about iOS 10.

And so the gods of modern technology have seen fit to bless the mindless masses with a software update. Maybe you're wondering, "Should i get the new iOS?" A valid query. But the real question is, is iOS 10 a blessing, or a Sodom & Gomorrah-style curse? Or, put more succinctly, does iOS 10 suck? Well, yes and no. There are some nice features to iOS 10, but, as with most new Apple products, users are reporting numerous bugs and other annoyances tied to the new software.

Let's be clear - there are plenty of nifty improvements provided by iOS 10. But what fun would it be to talk about those? It's every iPhone user's right and pleasure to gripe about the smallest inconveniences suffered through constant, addiction-addled phone use. What do you think this is, the Killing Fields? Apple acolytes don't have real problems, they have rich people problems. 

So let's come together before of our false, flat, retina-screened idol, and stone it to death for forcing us to make occasional extra keystrokes. Behold: here is your list of worst things about iOS 10. Don't forget to vote up your biggest new-software-related pet peeves.
