1. The New Portrait Mode For iPhone 7 Plus


Remember when we were all thrilled about the iPhone 7 Plus’ dual-lens camera? Well, it’s about to get even better. Now with portrait mode, you can take artistic “bokeh” effect photos without having to adjust your aperture or focus like you would with a traditional camera. Instead, the phone does it for you with guiding annotations so you always get the best quality shots.

2. Improved Bluetooth Connectivity


If you were having problems pairing your Apple Watch or other devices with your iPhone 7, good news! Apple has fixed connectivity issues associated with the phone’s Bluetooth capabilities.

3. Bubble Effects In Messages 


Your messages get a little more emotive with gifs, bubble effects and voice messages in the new update! You can also replay these effects so you don’t miss a message again.

4. Transit Directions In Japan


If you’re travelling to Japan for a holiday at the end of the year, you’ll be glad to know that the new update now includes transit directions for Apple Maps in cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

5. Updates To The Photo App


The names of your loved ones will now be saved alongside their photos in your camera roll so when you’re backing up to iCloud, you can easily find their photos with their names.
