Apple is preparing to offer a few updates for iPhone customers in an event set for September after introducing its newest operating system, with an emphasis on iOS 17, in its WWDC event in 2023. Notably, the eagerly anticipated iOS 17 will have a number of new features that will enhance the user experience. Apple is preparing for some significant enhancements this year, including updates to its messaging services, modifications to its auto-correct algorithm, safety measures, interactive widgets, AirDrop features, a new Journal, keyboard, Safari, and password manager, among other things.
iOS 17 will be made available to users, most likely in September or October, even though it is currently only in beta form for developers. The business has also provided a preview of iOS 17 on its official website, providing iPhone owners with a sneak peek at what’s to come.
Feature expectations for Apple iOS 17 update:
Communication Safety: Apple will be extending Communication Safety to more applications in order to increase the security and safety of users’ information. Apple warns that naked images or videos will be censored by adding underpants or a bathing suit.
Verification codes that automatically disappear: Although users frequently get one-time passwords to access their personal IDs or information, the messages aren’t always removed. Apple will now allow for the automatic deletion of these OTPs or verification codes.
With iOS 17, users may occasionally be reminded to decide whether they want to grant full or limited access to apps for viewing their images and videos.
Apple’s Safari browser will see changes in iOS 17, including private browsing and sophisticated tracking. This will guard against URL trackers but not guarantee the privacy of users’ phone-related actions.
Offline Maps: With iOS 17, Apple will finally make offline maps available on its own navigation app. Although the capability was already accessible to Android users, it is now also available to iPhone users.
NameDrop functionality: By enabling this function, iPhone users will be able to rapidly exchange their contact information with nearby Apple Watch and iPhone users.
Check-In: As part of upgrading its security measures, Apple will introduce the Check-In function, which will allow users to inform their loved ones about their travels. When it is checked, the user’s information, including current location, battery life, and cellular signal, is automatically shared with their contacts.
Along with the anticipated enhancements, Apple has published a list of devices that work with iOS 17.
