After upgrade, it will give detailed indoor maps around the globe for places like airports and shopping centers. The phone will block most notifications to reduce temptations behind the wheel.

iOS 11 was just announced at Apple's WWDC 2017 and it confirmed the new software would only work on devices that support 64-bit apps.
