It's reported that this is the most quickest way to get the update.

All Apple product users are advised to get the new update

Also, even if you don't have an iPhone 7 Plus, it's advised that you still update to the 10.1 firmware, because it's supposed to help get rid of some the kinks that the 10.0 firmware presented. It'll also provided some very critical security fixes.

2 lenses are used to detect really deep levels

As mentioned, earlier, this new update provides a Portrait mode for the iPhone 7 Plus, which is being described as really incredible. It's supposedly, uses two lenses on the phone to create background blur for the background layers. The lenses also detect levels that go about 9 levels deep. You can also customize the effect to fit your own needs.

The new mode will need some adjusting

Like with anything, you will have to work at adjusting the new Portrait mode until it fits your liking.

However, if you just can't get it right, there is an option to disable the new mode after taking a photo, which will just give you the original snap shot minus the blurring effect.

The new mode served up some great photos

Currently, the new Portrait mode is considered to be in beta even though the iOS 10.1 firmware, as a whole, is out of beta. I saw some photos, taken with the new Portrait mode, and they did come out crystal clear and very sharp. So, Apple users might definitely want to give it a try.
