Apple announced the latest version of the iPhone operating system, iOS 17 last month. Now its public beta version is available to iPhone users for free to download. Note that the stable version of it will be accessible to all users when the generation of iPhone launches globally.
The public beta of iOS 17 has started to roll out for iPhone users. In addition to this Apple is also releasing the first public betas of iPadOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS Sonoma along with iOS 17. The latest version of the iPhone operating system brings new features and improvements that improve your daily activities.
The Phone app is getting a significant makeover. Contact Posters, which let you customise how you appear on other people’s devices across Phone, FaceTime, Messages, and AirDrop, give incoming calls a completely different look. Live Voicemail gives you the information you need right away so you can pick up the calls that count, allowing you to regain control over your incoming calls.
With the brand-new app Journal, you can document both regular and memorable events in your life by writing about them. Using information that your iPhone already has about you, such as your activity, location, phone calls, images, and more, intelligently curated ideas with writing prompts to get you started are developed particularly for you. The journal also has scheduled alerts to encourage habit formation and to record personal improvement by reflecting on the past.
You get new tools and insights from your health in two crucial areas: mental and visual health. Additionally, Favourites now features chart information. To keep motivated and consistent, the Fitness app and Fitness+13 introduce additional options like Sharing Highlights, Stacks, and Custom Plans.
