iOS 10 may be announced in Apple’s upcoming World Wide Developer Conference next week (June 13th - 17th).
IBM plans to provide service updates to IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation to support the new iOS release based on the terms described in http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27045489. Note that this policy is not dictated by the Program Technical Support’s lifecycle as stated in the product’s version announce letter because a new version of a supported mobile operating system is considered a new feature. In other words, we do not plan to introduce support for iOS 10 in IBM Worklight Foundation 6.2 or earlier releases. If you are an on-premise 8.0 customer or Mobile Foundation service customer, then read further to learn about the iOS 10 support. For those customers who have iOS apps developed using IBM Worklight Foundation 6.2 or earlier releases, and intend to have their app running on iOS 10, an upgrade to a later release is required. Talk to your IBM representative about how we can help.
The recently released IBM MobileFirst Foundation 8.0 provides an opporunity to upgrade your applications to the next level:

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
