Apple is set to release iOS 17 with exciting new features, but some of them may be delayed for future updates.
Apple is release iOS 17
Apple is gearing up for the highly anticipated release of iOS 17, which will be available for download in India at 10:30 PM local time on Monday night. Unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), this update promises several exciting new features for iPhone users. However, it’s possible that some key components may be held back for inclusion in later versions, possibly iOS 17.1 or 17.2, as technical experts continue internal testing.
According to a report by LiveMint, the initial update on September 18 may not include certain features, including the Journal app. Designed to provide iPhone users with a comprehensive platform to capture their daily experiences and memories, it goes beyond just text entries, allowing for the inclusion of photos, music, and audio recordings.
The report also suggests that Apple Music users can look forward to collaborative playlist functionality, although this feature won’t be part of the Monday’s update. Collaborative playlists enable multiple users to contribute, organize, and remove songs from a shared playlist, enhancing the social and interactive aspects of the Apple Music experience.
There’s also an important enhancement planned for the AirDrop service, scheduled for an update in 2023. After this update, AirDrop will no longer be limited by physical proximity for content transfer. As long as both the sender and receiver are logged into iCloud accounts, transfers can occur over the internet, even if the devices are outside the AirDrop range.
The ability to react to messages using any sticker via the Tapback menu and the ability to pin iMessage conversations for group chats may also be delayed. Additional elements include the inclusion of a ‘Favorite Songs’ playlist in the Music app and intelligent form detection for PDFs.
Apple Fitness+ will introduce an ‘Audio Focus’ feature, allowing users to prioritize their preferred music or trainer’s voice during workouts.
