A fresh leak of iOS 17 details some of the changes we could see in the iPhone department later this year, including some major app overhauls.
Apple has publicly launched iOS 16 back in late 2022. Since then, it has been working on smaller ones. 16.x: releases to fix residual bugs and introduce some missing features he announced. Meanwhile, engineers in Cupertino are also developing this year’s upcoming OS update, iOS 17. While iOS version updates are rarely leaked before the official reveal, there have been some exceptions. And it looks like this year’s anticipated release is one of them.
Based on HowToSolve: reports reliable LeaksApplePro:iOS 17 (codenamed Dawn) may not contain a large amount of visual changes. This is quite expected, as previous rumors indicated that Apple is reallocating some of its resources to focus on mixed reality headsets. Although, a leaker has now shared some fresh information regarding the changes in iOS 17. These could include major changes to the Music app, especially when it comes to app navigation.
In addition to Music, the leaker notes that the Home app will see a noticeable overhaul. This is in addition to minor changes to the Find My, Mail, Reminders, Files, Fitness, and Wallet apps. Not surprisingly, iOS 17 may also introduce a new app to support AR/VR headsets. While the leak doesn’t provide many details, we can assume that this app is meant to tweak the headset’s settings and customize its experience.
Apart from these universal features of iOS 17, the code of this operating system may reveal some features related to the upcoming iPhone 15 series. If the information is accurate, then all iPhone 15 models will indeed have Dynamic Island and USB Type-C. However, it appears that only two iPhone 15 models, presumably the 15 Pro and 15 Ultra, will support the faster USB 3.2 transfer speeds. So, lower-end models of the iPhone 15 could accept a USB-C port while missing out on the speed improvement.
Finally, it looks like Apple will give the iPhone 15 Ultra even more exclusive features this year by including more advanced image processing software. The iPhone 15 Pro will potentially miss out on this addition as the company tries to separate the two models.
