On the other hand, the NameDrop function allows you to share your contact wirelessly by bringing your iPhone closer to another.

With the live message inbox, you will be able to see a real-time transcription of the message that someone else is leaving you by voice.

As for pure improvements, the most important one is autocorrect, which will now more accurately predict the word you are typing. Text recommendations are also optimized, which will make it easier to write long texts. Finally, Apple Maps will have a function with which to download maps to be able to use them while offline.
