Big iOS 17 Changes Tipped Including Upgraded Dynamic Island
Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 during its WWDC23 event on 5 June and then make the update available to the world this September. Now, a new leak claims to have shared details about what we can expect from that release.
Writing on Twitter, the leaker claims that there are a number of changes coming to this release. However, iOS 17 is still expected to be available to all of the same devices that supported iOS 17.
As for improvements, performance and stability are thought to be key, while Control Center is tipped to get “major changes” including a new interface and additional customization.
The Dynamic Island, which is thought to be coming to the standard iPhone 15 this year, is also expected to get some upgrades although it isn’t clear what those will be just yet. We’re also told to expect more Always-On Display options as well.
Other changes include more Focus Mode filters and notification options, while live widgets with sliders, one-tap buttons, and more could come this year although they are “not confirmed by any means” just yet.
Exclusive: Almost everything I know about what’s new in #iOS17.
The same leaker also suggests that there are some camera upgrades that were meant to arrive with the iPhone 14 Pro but didn’t. It’s said to be possible that they will be held back for the iPhone 15, however.
Interestingly, the leaker also says that the iPhone 15 Pro is still on track for new solid-state buttons despite recent reports to the contrary. That will be an interesting one to keep an eye on over the coming months.
