Apart from the portrait mode, which is only available for iPhone 7 Plus will be available, there are a number of error corrections. For example, the bug that prevented some iPhone 7 users from reliably focusing on the camera at every startup has been fixed. My device was also affected by this problem, since the update to iOS 10.1 the error has not been reproducible so far.

In addition to camera support, Apple Maps now also has improved support for public transport navigation - which can be very handy in large cities. In addition to the official list of updates, Apple will also have done a lot in the area of security again - but jailbreaks are out of fashion with the latest iOS versions anyway.
