Adding to Contacts Made Easier
• You can now add any users to your contacts, even if their phone numbers are not visible.
• Quickly add users standing next to you by opening Contacts > Add People Nearby. You will see people who have this section open.
• Host local communities by creating location-based group chats from the People Nearby section.
Transfer Group Chats
• Transfer ownership of group chats and channels by granting full rights to another admin. Useful when switching jobs or if you just want to retire as creator.
• Use Siri shortcuts to open chats with people.
• Choose app icon style and enjoy new theme previews in Appearance settings.
• Toggle message previews for specific chats, and use Search and ‘Delete All’ tools in Notification Exceptions.
