Get directions that don't suck
Let's be real, Google Maps will probably still be your go-to for navigation. But Apple’s finally upgraded its Maps to be more helpful, and it's actually armed with some very handy transit direction features. In fact, it helps you save precious time on your commute by directing you to specific subway entrances and which section of the train to get on so you can make a more efficient transfer.
Browse faster with "Wi-Fi Assist"
Rather than go through the trouble of turning your Wi-Fi off when the connection is crappy, this feature saves you a step and automatically switches to mobile data when it recognizes a weak wireless signal, so you can continue browsing at optimum speeds. To enable it, scroll to the bottom of the Cellular menu in Settings.
