Will Earth be suitable for life to live upon it if its axial tilt is less than 10 degrees?

Just worry about what has happened/is happening, not what hasn't happened yet. You will drive yourself insane.

I don't see why it wouldn't. Of course the seasonal changes won't be as much as it is now with 23.5 degrees tilt but still, I don't see how seasons are that important for life or nature in general.
Look at it this way: At the polar circle, the seasons change so much that there is one day without night in the summer, while it becomes one day without daylight at the winter solstice. On the other hand, the seasons are barely noticeable at the equator. Yet life is flourishing in both places, hence it is not depending of a seasonal change.

Now the earth's tilt is about 23.5 degrees and hence the apparent movement of the sun is is restricted by 23.5 degrees latitude North and South.If the tilt is 10 degrees or less the maximum apparent movement will be between 10 degrees latitude North and South.In such cases,poles will be more colder in summer and less colder in winter whether it is northern or southern hemisphere.
