During a WWDC session a TextEdit app icon was spotted on iOS 10.

Is Apple bringing the TextEdit app known from macOS to iOS 10? TextEdit is a simple text editor pre-installed on OS X. It is a handy tool for quickly editing text, performing searches and replacing and keeping text clips.

During the What's New in Metal, Part 1 session at WWDC 2016, Apple used an iPad to show off the graphics API's new adaptive tessellation capabilities on iOS 10. In the video, a TextEdit icon can be seen on the iPad's home screen from the multitasking app switcher screen.

The app icon is different from how TextEdit is represented on macOS. If this discovery actually means the iPhone users will get a simple text editor remains to be seen. This could just be an internal app for Apple developers and not planned for release. A TextEdit app for the iPhone is not really necessary. Users can use the Notes app to keep and edit small junks of text. There is Pages for creating longer text.

The screen also shows the Game Center app, which has been removed from iOS 10 as standalone app.

Apple has released iOS 10 to developers at the WWDC 2016 last week. The public beta of the new iPhone and iPad operating system will available as public beta in July. iOS 10 will be available to everyone this fall.
