With iOS 17, hold two iPhones near together to instantly start a SharePlay session.
Widgets that are interactive:
Apple has modernized widgets by making them interactive. One of the finest iOS 17 features is the ability to interact with a widget from your Home Screen, Lock Screen, or Standby. You can finish a task, listen to or pause a song or podcast, and even access your Home controls.

AirTags on Find My:
AirTag or Find My network accessories can be shared with up to five other users. When everyone in the group is nearby, they can use Precision Finding and play a sound to pinpoint the location of a shared AirTag.
When a user initiates a Check-In on Messages, a friend or family member will receive an automatic notification when the user arrives. If they are not making progress toward their goal, useful information such as the device’s position, battery level, and cell service status will be momentarily shared with the specified contact. Any information exchanged is encrypted from beginning to end.
AirDrop with Cellular Data:
As teased during the WWDC 2023 keynote, you may continue transmitting and receiving content on iOS 17 while Wi-Fi is unavailable. This implies that if you start sending images to a friend after a party, but your Uber arrives, you can continue sending via LTE.
