10: Be Objective when Making a decision

As great as the iOS 10 update could be, it is important to objectively look at all the pros and cons of installing the update before you do.

We will caution that if you have only 1 iOS powered device, you shouldn’t install the iOS 10. This is because the update could cause a few issues that can mean your device will be out of commission for a while as you fix it- you don’t want that.

You are also cautioned against installing the beta if you are not able to handle bugs and issues that could arise. If you however want to gauge its performance, you may want to install it but not on your primary device.
