Apple released iOS 17 Beta version nowadays but after some time it will be available for more users. Here is a summary of some of the most notable features coming to the iPhone with iOS 17.
Top Rated Features of iOS 17 for iPhone Users
A new feature that allows users to customize the screen that pops up when they call someone with a photo or Memoji of themselves. This can also work with third-party calling apps and pop up in the Contacts app and other areas where you share your information.
An AirDrop feature that lets users share contact information by putting two iPhones next to each other. It can also be used to share content or start SharePlay activities together, like listening to the same music.
When sharing high-resolution media, users don’t need to stand next to each other and wait for the transfer to complete. The files will be sent over the internet, although this feature is expected to launch a little after iOS 17 rolls out.
Similar to Google’s Call Screen, iPhones will have a feature that allows users to see the transcription of a voicemail in real-time. Users can then choose to answer the call immediately if it’s important.
Messages App Upgrades
Users will be able to check in with a friend or family member when they arrive at a destination. If they don’t respond, the system will share location data, battery level, and cell service status with their loved ones.
Improved iMessage apps
iMessage apps will no longer clutter up the top of the keyboard but will live inside a little “+” icon. This will sort the list by the apps using the most, and users can swipe up to see the rest of their iMessage apps.
Location Sharing in iMessage
When someone shares their location with you in iMessage, you’ll be able to see this directly in the conversation without having to leave the app.
Audio Message Transcriptions in iMessage
If someone sends an audio message, you’ll see the transcription immediately under it, which is handy if you can’t listen to it immediately.
Users will be able to leave a video or audio message for anyone who doesn’t answer their call. FaceTime is also making its way to Apple TV, and you can use your iPhone as a camera.
AR Reactions in FaceTime
During a FaceTime call, users can create augmented reality “reactions,” like confetti, hearts, or fireworks, with certain hand gestures.
Stickers are now built into the emoji keyboard, making them more accessible in third-party apps. Users can cut out a subject from any image they capture and turn these into their own stickers for big meme potential.
