Apple’s Rumored Journaling App Could Be Announced At WWDC23

Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 during the opening keynote of WWDC23 on 5 June and now a new report suggests that it will include one big new feature in particular — it’s getting a journaling app.

That’s according to a report by The Wall Street Journal which claims that the app is currently under development and will make use of as-yet unconfirmed features that give it a leg up over the competition from the likes of Day One.

A journaling app will allow people to log what they did, how they felt, and more with Apple’s own likely app pulling some information in automatically.

The Apple journaling app, code-named Jurassic, is designed to help users keep track of their daily lives, according to the documents describing the software. The app will analyze the users’ behavior to determine what a typical day is like, including how much time is spent at home compared with elsewhere, and whether a certain day included something outside the norm, according to the documents.

The ability to collect information that third-party apps won’t have access to will immediately put other apps at a disadvantage, the popular Day One included.

The iOS 17 update will be announced in June and developer betas will be made available immediately if Apple’s previous release schedules are adhered to. But the update won’t be released to the public until around the middle of September, just before the iPhone 15 lineup goes on sale.
