But throughout the keynote presentation you could sense an undeniable change in vision—Apple is finally opening up. What began with small updates in iOS 8 when third-party developers were given access to keyboards and widgets has now reached its zenith with iOS 10. Apple is now opening major applications like Siri and Messages to third-party developers.
