iOS 10 Tips

PPTP VPN Not Supported

PPTP VPN connections are no longer supported on iOS 10 devices.

Additionally, you may be unable to establish a PPTP connection from another device via a Personal Hotspot connection. In a Windows environment, consider reconfiguring the server to use L2TP.

Personal Hotspot Missing

Some devices may not show the Personal Hotspot option in Settings.

To resolve:

  1. Double-tap the Home button to enter multi-tasking mode.

  2. Swipe up on Settings to close it.

  3. Re-open Settings.

It may also be necessary to reboot.

Touch To Unlock

iOS 10 changes the default way to unlock a device. Previously you could touch your fingerprint against the Home button or swipe. In iOS 10 you can press the Home button and enter a PIN or press the Home button with a fingerprint.

To allow unlocking by placing the fingerprint on the Home button (without a press):

  1. Go to Settings

  2. Select GeneralAccessibilityHome Button.

  3. Enable Rest Finger to Open.

Email Conversations

iOS already has an option to group emails from the same thread. iOS 10 expands that functionality by including messages from other folders, including deleted items. This can create a confusing collection of emails if you're not used to that behaviour on, say, OS X.

To disable this:

  1. Go to Settings

  2. Select Mail.

  3. Set Complete Threads to off.
