While the aesthetics haven’t changed, Apple has built upon iOS 16 and introduced several new quality-of-life features, such as StandBy, which allows you to turn your iPhone into a smart display of sorts when placed horizontally while charging, and even some India-centric features like the bi-lingual Siri and the enhanced dual SIM experience.
