iOS 10 is finally performing on stage and what people are liking the most about it now is its increased Smartness, letting you know where you’ve parked your car via the Maps app present in it. When you are parking your car anywhere except your home, your iPhone will automatically remember the location and you will be notified that Maps app has dropped a pin where you parked your car.


Tapping on that notification will give you a bit more access to this feature by letting you see the live make of your parked car location and gives you the ability to even take a photograph of that place fir the sake of memorizing that location. If you are still not sure you can remember it, adding a text note is also an option. If you think your Maps app took you to the wrong place you can use Edit Location feature too.

Turning parked car notification feature on or off is not a big deal. For that you just have to go to the “Settings app” and then “Maps” section.
Whole Maps app in iOS 10 has been redesigned and introduced with such moves that takes less taps to do things. Now this app is the real deal when we talk about its user friendly nature and the button placements gives you real ease of use. The residents of this globe especially of U. S are advised to switch towards Maps app which can benefit you more than Google Maps.

Although Google Maps is the one with more diverse map information if we talk about the whole world but Maps app for iOS has the features enough to make citizens of U.S and other countries where Maps has enough info databases go for it. Neither was Google Maps a one hit wonder and nor is Maps app going to be so. With more time and advancement in technology working together side by side Maps is not too far behind from being the best.

This is indeed the most secure way to keep your Apple ID secure because a person even if is aware of your password still can’t open your ID because in order to do so, two factor authentication is necessary in which you have to enter your one time code that anyone of your trusted devices generates. One time code is needed to be entered when you try to make a purchase or sign in to your Apple ID, iCloud,, iMessage, FaceTime or Game Center account on any new Apple device.
