Note: iPhone 5S, Version 10.0.2 (14A456)
Updated today and goodness me, talk about a disaster! If you have not updated, I would advise not to do so when you're in the middle of a business day or otherwise in a critical phone use period.
Start page updated with "widgets"...talk about annoying. There is an edit icon you can click to remove those widgets you do not want on your start screen, and others that are available to add.
Other updates (not all listed) new Home feature, new Wallet feature, updated Apple News application, Extra button has new features, Calendar has changed, Google maps updated, Photos layout has changed, camera layout has changed, messaging has many new features, just to name a few.
Many of these changes will be found after you click on the application.
Are the changes a bad thing? Not sure right now, however if you're not prepared to take some time to become familiar with the update ~ ~ ~ wait!
Self edit: added note

I quite like it actually, especially the redesigned control center, spotlight search, photos app, and music app. But there was way too much hype... The thing I really detest is the "Press home to unlock" feature. I'd rather stick to "Slide to unlock".

Updated a few devices without issues. As with any IOS major version bump you will need to go through all settings and tweak any new ones to your way of doing things.
The only thing that keeps tripping me up with IOS 10, is the loss of "swipe to unlock". Instead you have to press the home button. Initially I kept accidentally activating the voice control of the device. On my iPhone that has TouchID, I have set the accessibility option "Rest finger to open", so if the screen is already woken, I don’t actually have to depress the button (that option is under "Settings" / "General" / "Accessibility" / "Home button" if you want it).
Applying updates is important, (including IOS major version number changes - as the earlier IOS versions tend not to get any more security updates once a new majpr version is out).
I'd normally say dive in, however I suspect that there will be another update soon (not sure how soon - it could be days or a week or two) as they need to address an issue where certain encryption keys need to be strengthened. The iPhones/iPads with IOS 10 are secure, but the backups that get taken when you connect your device to a PC are more susceptible to brute force attacks against the encryption level used on the device. So nothing critical (but to major paranoids), but since there is another update coming, you MIGHT want to hold off if you prefer to minimise patching cycles.

I updated after waiting for the initial disasters. I like it. The new iMessage is much better, and the "widgets" are pretty useful. Can't wait to see what app developers do with them.

The IOS 10 is much better than its predecessors. Now we have advanced settings and upgraded UI and visual elements in ios 10. In ios 10, you can use the Siri with the third party applications, to control great number of apps with voice control and when you change the volume level in media or an app, the annoying pop up, which used to cover up your contents in the previous versions doesn't appear anymore,.
