Exciting Updates: Apple’s iOS 17 & iPadOS 17 Launching September 18th

iOS 17, the latest operating system for iPhone, will be available for public download on September 18th. This update brings exciting new features, such as Live Voicemail, StandBy mode, and a new Journal app. Apple made the official announcement during its iPhone 15 launch event on Tuesday, after originally introducing the OS at WWDC on June 5th.

For iPad users, the full-release version of iPadOS 17 will also be launched on September 18th. This update introduces new ways to interact with widgets and personalize the lock screen. iPadOS 17 is compatible with sixth-generation iPad models, fifth-generation iPad mini, third-generation iPad Air, and second-generation iPad Pro 12.9-inch models or later. You can find a full list of compatible models on the Apple website.

One of the standout features of iOS 17 is the ability to activate Siri without saying “hey” first

With the full release of iOS 17, users can enjoy customizable stickers, Contact Posters, and various improvements to autocorrect and voice transcription. Additionally, Siri can now be activated without needing to say “hey” first. The Live Voicemail feature displays a live transcript on-screen while a voicemail is being recorded if the call is unanswered. The new StandBy mode also turns the iPhone into a bedside clock when placed on its side, which is a highly appreciated feature.

iOS 17 introduces a new feature called NameDrop, which allows users to easily share contact information over AirDrop by bringing two iPhones together. Apple cautions that some features of iOS 17 may not be available in all countries or regions, so it’s advisable to check Apple’s website for specific details.

While some individuals have already had access to the latest iPhone OS due to Apple’s developer program and public beta release, iOS 17 will only be compatible with ‌iPhone‌ models equipped with the A12 Bionic chip or newer. This means that the oldest models eligible for the update are the iPhone XR and XS.
