iOS 17 Could Bring Some Much Wanted Features To The iPhone

Apple is expected to unveil iOS 17 during its WWDC 2023 event that will likely take place in June 2023. Now, a new report suggests that the update will e a big one, although it might not have one particular feature that will get downloaders excited.

The iOS 17 update was previously tipped to be a maintenance one. That is, the update wasn’t expected to bring a huge number of new features but would instead fix bugs and improve performance.

Now, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Apple has decided to focus on fixing some things that people have been complaining about, adding “nice to have” features in the process.

Gurman, in a tweet, has said:

When Apple set out to develop iOS 17, the initial thinking was to call it a tuneup release — one focused more on fixing bugs and improving performance than adding new features (not unlike the approach the company took with Snow Leopard on Mac OS X back in 2009). The hope was to avoid the problems of iOS 16, an ambitious update that suffered from missed deadlines and a buggy start. But later in the development process, the strategy changed. The iOS 17 release is now expected to boast several “nice to have” features, even if it lacks a tentpole improvement like last year’s revamped lock screen. The goal of the software, codenamed “Dawn,” is to check off several of users’ most requested features.

If Apple does announce the iOS 17 update in June we can then expect it to be available for everyone to download later in the year, around September time. That’s also when Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 15 lineup, too.
