List of supported devices for iOS 17

Every iPhone bird is now looking for the list of supported iOS 17 devices as they are eager to test the upcoming iOS 17 beta. iOS 16 was released just a few months ago and Apple users are already looking forward to the launch of iOS 17.

Based on Apple’s track record of rolling out updates, iOS 17 is expected to be released in late 2023. However, the tech giant is expected to announce the next version of iOS at the company’s WWDC 2023 in June.

iOS 16 came with a wealth of new features, which means iOS 17 will have to do better. It is not yet clear what kind of features will be included in the next update, but it is speculated that it will have more lock screen widgets, improvements to iMessage, access to third-party app stores, and more.

When will iOS 17 be released?

Apple will likely announce the next iOS update in June. During this phase, iOS 17 will be available under the company’s Beta Software Program. You can only use the update if you are logged in to the said program.

After the beta phase, iOS 17 will be officially released and made available to all Apple users. However, the exact release date is not yet known. Apple usually rolls out new updates in September. So unless they decide to change their release pattern, we can expect iOS 17 to be released in September 2023.

Like all other iOS updates, iOS 17 will be available for free to all Apple users.

Features included in iOS 17

All of Apple’s recent iOS updates have brought major changes. For example, iOS 16 came with a ton of new features. We expect Apple to continue the trend with iOS 17 as well.

As of now, Apple has not revealed anything about iOS 17. However, rumors suggest that the next iOS update will have the following features.

Widgets are useful because they provide information at a glance. iOS 17 is expected to add more new widgets.

With iOS 16, you can have two large widgets and four small ones on the lock screen. It would be great if iOS 17 supported more widgets on the lock screen.

Android users have been using this feature for ages. This is one of the most requested features by users. We hope Apple adds the call recording option to the iOS 17 update.

iPhone supports multitasking but has no split screen option for apps. It is speculated that iOS 17 could include such a feature.

According to sources, Apple plans to give users access to third-party app stores in iOS 17. This feature will be very helpful for users as they no longer need to jailbreak their devices.

This is an interesting feature that allows you to “clone” apps, allowing you to create two separate profiles. For example, you can have two WhatsApp accounts on one device.

According to verified sources, Apple could be giving iMessage a new look. The tech giant plans to redesign iMessage for a better user experience.

Apple is reportedly planning to shorten Siri’s listening phrase by dropping the “Hey” part.
